Michael Avenatti shot back at President Trump after the president ignited the crowd at his rally Tuesday night by mocking a woman accusing Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault.
“Regardless of your politics, you should be outraged by the POTUS standing before a crowd and mocking a woman who claims she was sexually assaulted,” Avenatti tweeted Wednesday.
“[Trump] sought applause and laughter at her expense. Call him what he is — a misogynist pig with no respect for women,” the tweet continued.

Days after saying Christine Blasey Ford’s testimony to the Senate Judiciary Committee was “very credible,” Trump changed his tune by re-enacting her appearance before the panel.
“I had one beer!” Trump said, referring to Ford describing her level of intoxication at the party she alleges Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her.
“How did you get home?” he asked, playing the prosecutor.
“I don’t remember,” he said, continuing to ask and answer a series of questions and giving the responses, “I don’t know” and “I don’t remember.”
Avenatti is representing another one of Kavanaugh's accusers, Julie Swetnick. She alleges Kavanaugh was part of a group of boys in high school who tried to spike girls’ drinks at house parties and then gang-rape them.
Kavanaugh has denied all allegations against him.
