Attorney Michael Avenatti blasted President Trump on Tuesday as a “disgusting misogynist and an embarrassment to the United States” after the president called Avenatti’s client, porn star Stormy Daniels, “Horseface.”

“Bring everything you have, because we are going to demonstrate to the world what a complete shyster and liar you are. How many other women did you cheat on your wife with while you had a baby at home?” Avenatti asked in a tweet.

{mosads}”Tens of millions of Americans are tired of your fraud, lies, and corruption,” Avenatti said in a separate tweet.

“We (and the UN) are laughing AT YOU, not with you,” he added.

The attorney responded moments after Trump ripped him and Daniels in celebration of a judge’s decision to dismiss her defamation lawsuit against the president.

“Great, now I can go after Horseface and her 3rd rate lawyer in the Great State of Texas. She will confirm the letter she signed! She knows nothing about me, a total con!” Trump tweeted.

The comment is the most direct and personal attack the president has issued against Daniels, who alleges that she had an affair with the president in 2006 and was paid for her silence on the matter in the run-up to the 2016 presidential election.

Daniels, an adult-film performer and director, sued the president earlier this year to void a nondisclosure agreement she said she signed related to the alleged affair.

She later filed a defamation lawsuit after Trump dismissed a sketch of a man Daniels said threatened her about the nondisclosure agreement as a “total con job.”

Avenatti, who has expressed aspirations to run for president in 2020, has pledged to appeal the judge’s ruling on the defamation suit.

Trump’s former attorney Michael Cohen pleaded guilty in August to two counts of violating campaign finance laws. In his guilty plea, he admitted to paying two women during the 2016 campaign at Trump’s direction to keep them quiet about affairs.

Trump has said he did not know about the payments at the time they were made.
