Sen. Kennedy Mocks Michael Avenatti While Defending Whitaker

Sen. John Kennedy (R-LA) has been giving Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) a run for his money in the one-liners department lately. Both men have a knack for coming up with some political knee slappers, but I think Kennedy wins this week's round. In an interview with CNN's Brooke Baldwin Wednesday, Kennedy defended Trump's decision to appoint Matthew Whitaker the acting attorney general in the wake of Jeff Sessions's exit. In his commentary he managed to throw in a couple zingers about former Stormy Daniels lawyer and Trump critic Michael Avenatti.

Critics insist that Whitaker, a former U.S. attorney, is not qualified for the job and cannot lawfully serve without Senate approval. Democrats also assert he was promoted to obstruct Robert Mueller's Russia investigation. The White House defended the appointment and a DOJ report out today justified it as completely constitutional, adding that he can lawfully serve as acting attorney general for as long as 210 days.

As for Avenatti, he made more news Wednesday night after getting arrested in Los Angeles on charges of domestic violence.

Avenatti told TMZ that he expects to be "fully exonerated" following an investigation.
