    Avenatti sounds like a knock-off Italian sports car.

    He’s beating Trump at his own game.

    As one wag on twitter called it, disc pic.

    I remain convinced that having to watch Littledick do his thing in all its ignominy, over and over, is only too little punishment for Trumpists/Steiniacs/whatever-they-are. Far, far too little punishment. That their children and grandchildren should be able to look up this footage, and ask their parents about it, is only a trillionth part of the penalty they should all pay.

    Yeah, some of us will suffer it too. But we don’t have to look. They will, b/c their children will, and then will ask about it.

    Daniel’s and Avenatti’s polished Dog ‘n’ Pony Show makes Trump’s look like a cut-rate flea circus. Where all the fleas have died.

    I saw a comment on another forum that this might just be some random CD being dangled as bait for Trump to snap at. He’s certainly stupid enough to bite at it.

    I am desperately sorry for Barron. How can he possibly not be aware of all this?

    Cannot see the pic (and couldn’t be happier about it). Presume there are more and this is only the tip of the viceberg.

    @SiubhanDuinne: @SiubhanDuinne: Melania could always take him home to Slovenia …

    But really … in the long run “Dad’s porn film got distributed” is going to be the least embarrassing thing about being the offspring of Donald J. Trump.

    @NotMax:

    It’s just a boring picture of a CD. Nothing in the least interesting, let alone offensive. It’s what one imagines as the images on the disc that’s causing all the excitement :-)

    MisterForkbeard says:

    @Adam L Silverman: What reasoning do they have to do that? To prove that Trump tried to pay for the NDA? Or to prove that he didn’t?

    I mean, I’m happy to see someone do that, but I don’t get what legal reasoning would let them.

    Good point in the long run. But it must be emotional torture for him right now. Poor kid.

    @MisterForkbeard: Other than to cause the President and Michael Cohen to freak out and overreact? I have no idea.

    I’m sure he is, he’s very good with the cyber.

    Damnit, I think I’m going to have to go by Costco and get more popcorn.

    MisterForkbeard says:

    @Jay: Sure, but you have to give a reason for discovery. What are they saying they expect/hope to find?

    @Adam L Silverman: Maybe that’s it? It’s just a psych-out. God knows Avenatti seems to have Trump’s number.

    I really, really don’t want to think about the prospect of a video of the presidential junk at work.

    There is not enough brain bleach in the world.

    @danielx

    Not a full-length movie, more like a short subject.

    This disc could be an elaborate fake, but it’s worth it if it makes Trump nervous.

    And the kid is still very young. Maybe Trump hasn’t had a chance yet to fully program him.

    Most likely, but that’s another thing I really don’t want to know.

    So…hmmm…what if Stormy offers to produce the video during the 60 minutes interview?

    Mnemosyne says:

    I’m assuming that Avenatti and Daniels are angling for a bigger, better payout than the last one she got, which was pretty skimpy.

    @MisterForkbeard:

    It’s a civil defamation case. Discovery is very, very broad, relating to “everything and all”. Legal twitter pointed out that Treason Tribble and his minion lawyers were morons trying to contest Stormy, because they were opening themselves up to hugely expansive discovery motions.

    He’s developing quite a fan base on Twitter – hashtag Avenhottie.

    Maybe there are plans to show the video during the 60 minutes interview. But how will they fill up the remaining 59 minutes and 55 seconds?

    Between this and the Bolton news, it’s like a goddamned remake of Wag the Dog, except with a real possibility of nukes. I’m right on the border between too scared to think straight and too enraged to notice the fear.

    @SiubhanDuinne: At his age, believe it or not, he probably knows his dad is a giant piece of shit and avoids interacting with him in any way.

    @Mnemosyne: seriously, is phrasing no longer a thing?

    Chip Daniels says:

    @SiubhanDuinne:
    This kid has witnessed Trump up close and personal, interacting with his mom.

    News reports only tell him what he already knows.

    Could it be that the infamous pee tape is in reality a piss disc?

    I’m really liking Avenatti – smart guy. He said last night that he’s playing 3 dimensional chess, and they (Trump’s attorneys) are playing tic-tac-toe. You do have to have a large ego to be a litigator –
