It appears so.

It appears that Rudy Giuliani‘s comments last week about Stormy Daniels, the adult film actress who allegedly had an affair with President Donald Trump, seemed to rile up her lawyer, Michael Avenatti.

Now, Avenatti is not-so-subtly implying that he has procured the porn viewing habits of Giuliani, who the president recently hired to be part of his legal team amid the ongoing Russia probe.

The spat began last week when Giuliani said that women who work in the adult film industry don’t have any “credibility.”

“I’m sorry I don’t respect a porn star the way I respect a career woman or a woman of substance or a woman who has great respect for herself as a woman and as a person and isn’t going to sell her body for sexual exploitation,” he said in Tel Aviv. “So, Stormy, you want to bring a case? Let me cross-examine you, because the business you are in entitles you to no degree of giving your credibility any weight. Secondly, explain to me how she can be damaged? She has no reputation. If you’re going to sell your body for money, you just don’t have a reputation. I may be old fashioned, I don’t know.”

In response, Avenatti defended Daniels, calling Trump’s lawyer “disgusting” and an “absolute pig.”

Giuliani had also mentioned that he doesn’t “really look at porn.” Avenatti wasn’t buying it.

“I want to test Mr. Giuliani’s claims of being adamantly against pornography and having no use for adult film stars. If anyone can provide me with any evidence of him voluntarily viewing pornography, I will protect you as a source and publish it. Let’s PROVE the hypocrisy. #Basta,” he wrote on Twitter on June 9.

A day later, Avenatti hinted that one of his 533,000 Twitter followers may have provided him with what he was looking for.

Then on Monday, Avenatti said that Giuliani should apologize to Daniels–implying that he had the “evidence” that he could release.

“Mr. Giuliani: my client deserves an apology for your sexist, disgusting, comments about her and women in general. I strongly suggest you provide one. Are you really taking the position that you have not viewed porn in the last year? Ever hear of something called an IP address?…”

The real question is: Does anyone really want to know what kind of porn Giuliani watches?

Probably not.
