Days after writing in an op-ed that he's being "shunned" by the Martha's Vineyard social circuit because of his willingness to defend President Trump on cable news (the two reportedly had dinner together earlier this year) Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz - who wrote a book called "The Case Against Impeaching Trump" claimed that an unnamed Martha's Vineyard woman said she would "stab him through the heart" if he had attended the same party.
Dershowitz was apparently told about the remark by a friend who had attended the party. "At a party this week on Martha's Vineyard, a woman said if Dershowitz were here tonight, I'd stab him through the heart," Dershowitz said.
"This is a Martha's Vineyard woman saying she would stab me through the heart," he repeated.
Dershowitz was appearing on Tucker Carlson Tonight to discuss his op-ed in The Hill where he wrote that "old friends" on Martha's Vineyard were "shunning me and trying to ban me from their social life" because he dared to stand up for Trump's constitutional rights. The longtime law professor and former "Dream Team" member's op-ed became the subject of widespread ridicule from liberals, while conservatives pointed to it as yet another sign of how some of Trump's political opponents now refuse to even associate with people who voted for, or say anything remotely positive about, the president.
He went on to blame MIT Professor Nicholas Negroponte for "leading the campaign to try and get other people to shun me in every way and not to engage with me" and challenged Joe Scaraborough - who accused Dershowitz of being a "puppet" of Vladimir Putin - to invite Dershowitz to appear on his show.
