Dershowitz: Martha's Vineyard Liberals Who Shunned Me Are Actually Helping Trump

Harvard lawyer Alan Dershowitz, who has revealed he has become an outcast at his vacation retreat on Martha's Vineyard, said Thursday one snob warned she wanted to "stab him through the heart". I am a liberal Democrat in politics, but a neutral civil libertarian when it comes to the Constitution.

I am opposed to appointing a special counsel to investigate Hillary Clinton's campaign, and I was against it for Trump.

"I don't care about parties; I'm invited to too many", Dershowitz said. But one good thing is that being shunned by some "old friends" on Martha's Vineyard has taught me who my real friends are and who my fairweather friends were. He and others have demanded "trigger warnings" so that they can be assured of having "safe spaces" in which they will not encounter me or my ideas. "But at a party this week at Martha's vineyard, a woman said 'if Dershowitz were here tonight I'd stab him through the heart'".

"Unfortunately the scourge of McCarthyism is back", said show co-host Joe Scarborough. "I know this because I have experienced this firsthand on Martha's Vineyard".

England vs. Sweden final score, recap
Although Wright's colleague quickly retorted that there were still other lovely women who were "happy" following England's win. The 1966 World Cup champions last reached the semifinals in 1990, losing the first of a series of haunting penalty shootouts.

Alan Dershowitz is challenging the hosts of Morning Joe to face him if they're going to keep poking fun at him. "They are strengthening Donald Trump's hands", Dershowitz added.

Dershowitz also slammed Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) professor Nicholas Negroponte, whom he accused of orchestrating the Martha's Vineyard shunning. "The people that shun me are giving Donald Trump and his base an argument about what the radicals do".

"I want to make sure that the radical Left, the woman who got elected in the Bronx and Queens to Congress on the Democratic ticket, that they and Sanders and others don't represent the Democratic Party", he continued, referring to socialist Ocasio-Cortez who pulled off a shock victory last week against incumbent Democratic Rep. Joseph Crowley.

MSNBC's Joe Scarborough went so far as to claim that Dershowitz was "doing the bidding of Donald Trump" and Russian president Vladimir Putin.
