Alan Dershowitz is a self-described “liberal” who can now be seen frequently on Fox News arguing that Donald Trump should not be impeached. I’ve seen him on a couple of segments, and whatever else you want to say about Dershowitz’s constitutional arguments (they’re bullshit), the fact that he’s been incredibly cozy and chummy with the hosts of what is essentially a state-run propaganda network designed to gaslight America and protect the racist agenda of Trump is enough reason to shun Dershowitz by itself. And according to the NYTimes, Dershowitz is feeling it.
“I never thought I would see McCarthyism come to Martha’s Vineyard, but I have,” he wrote, of the elite island enclave off Cape Cod where he is a fixture.
Mr. Dershowitz, a self-professed “liberal Democrat,” said that friends on the Vineyard had snubbed him for publicly arguing against impeaching President Trump on television talk shows and in a forthcoming book.
“For them, it is enough that what I have said about the Constitution might help Trump,” said the lawyer, known for his fierce advocacy for civil liberties and his defense of famous clients like O.J. Simpson and Claus von Bulow. “So they are shunning me and trying to ban me from their social life on Martha’s Vineyard.”
Oh, poor Alan. Twitter pulled out their tiny violins en masse to express their sympathies.

That's not a ban. When we outlaw something, that's a ban. When nobody wants to hang out with you, that's just you being an asshole.

Both sides are equally bad, folks. The right is ripping kids from their parents at the border, and the left is shunning Alan Dershowitz from parties at Martha’s Vineyard. https://t.co/ChMc6ubU2e— Ali A. Rizvi (@aliamjadrizvi) July 2, 2018
