Alan Dershowitz ‏Insists He’s ‘Not Whining’ Over Being Shunned By Liberal Pals

    Alan Dershowitz ‏took to Twitter on Tuesday to insist he wasn’t “whining” about being shunned by old friends in Martha’s Vineyard, who don’t agree with his pro-Trump ideology.

    As the July 4 holiday loomed on the vacation paradise, the legal eagle poured fuel on the fire of the nation’s debate over “civility” in the Trump era.

    In an op-ed for The Hill, Dershowitz, an emeritus professor at Harvard Law School and frequent cable news talking head, expressed his frustration over being banned from the summer social scene because he defends President Trump’s civil liberties.

    He claimed that he doesn’t mind being given the cold shoulder, but laments what his ostracization means for America.

    Not everybody in the Twittersphere was happy with his claims.
