The attorney representing adult-film actress Stormy Daniels called on President Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani on Friday, calling him an “embarrassment” for his media appearances discussing the president’s legal issues.

“Dear Dazed Rudy: Please retire. Today,” Michael Avenatti wrote on Twitter. “You had a good run for many years. But you are distracting from that and quickly becoming an embarrassment. A never ending joke. Don’t let this serve as your legacy. The time has come.”

Avenatti criticized Giuliani in several tweets on Friday morning.

{mosads}”This is getting too easy. What an absolute train wreck this guy is. EVERY time!!!” Avenatti tweeted, linking to Giuliani’s Friday morning appearance on CNN.

Avenatti suggested it’s “time for pasture” for the former New York City mayor, who joined Trump’s legal team last month. He and Avenatti have feuded several times through media interviews, with Giuliani calling Avenatti a “pimp” and Avenatti challenging Giuliani to a face-to-face discussion on live television.

Giuliani snapped at CNN’s Chris Cuomo during an appearance aired Friday on “New Day” that the network was “unfair” in its coverage and was “promoting of Avenatti.”

Avenatti is representing Stormy Daniels in her lawsuit seeking release from a nondisclosure agreement regarding her claims of an affair with Trump in 2006.
