Cross examination isn't easy

 Michael Avenatti is learning the hard way from his trial last week where he is representing himself and trying to cross his former client, Stormy Daniels.  One exchange:

Avenatti: Wasn't it true I was typically nice and respectful to you? Stormy Daniels: No. You lied to me. Avenatti: Didn't you tell the government I was nice and respectful? Stormy Daniels: I was wrong. Avenatti: Move to strike.


Another exchange:

Avenatti: Didn't you tell the New York Times that watching me work was like watching the Sistine Chapel painted? Stormy Daniels: That's that you told me to say.

It's also not as hard as he made it.

Do you always say everything someone tells you to say?

You spoke about your testimony to the government prosecutors right?
You reviewed your testimony with them, right?

You can make lemonade out of lemons, but yeah, he stepped in it big time.

I thought Avenatti was supposed to be some mad dog, rough-and-tumble, go for the jugular litigator?
