Hollywood legend Larry David had a meltdown when he saw famed lawyer Alan Dershowitz at a grocery store on Martha’s Vineyard. David lashed out at Alan, in public, calling Trump’s impeachment attorney disgusting for hanging out with Mike Pompeo.
Dershowitz: “We can still talk, Larry.” David: “No. No. We really can’t. I saw you. I saw you with your arm around Pompeo It’s disgusting!”
Dershowitz: “He’s my former student at Harvard Law. I greet all of my former students that way. I can’t greet my former students?” David: “It’s disgusting. Your whole enclave — it’s disgusting. You’re disgusting!”
“While he was writing bad jokes, I was helping to bring about peace in the Middle East,” Dershowitz told Page Six later. “What has he done?”
“Larry is a knee-jerk radical,” Dershowitz said. “He takes his politics from Hollywood. He doesn’t read a lot. He doesn’t think a lot.”
“It’s typical of what happens now on the Vineyard,” he said. “People won’t talk to each other if they don’t agree with their politics.”
From Page Six:
Reached for comment, Dershowitz confirmed the exchange and told us that he and the “Curb” creator had been friends for many years until the lawyer began working with the Trump camp.
He even claimed that he helped get one of David’s daughters into college and had once represented him pro bono in a legal dispute he had on the Massachusetts island, where they both spend their summers.
He told us that he’d greeted David at the store, but that the comic had walked away from him — which is when he said, “We can still talk, Larry” and our spy picked up the dialogue.
Dershowitz told us that, while it might sound on paper like an awkward scene from “Curb,” “it wasn’t funny at all.”
The professor claimed that David “screamed” and “yelled” at him, and that his face turned bright red. “I was worried that he was going to have a stroke,” said Dershowitz.
He pointed out that on the occasions he has been snapped being affectionate towards Pompeo — who studied at Harvard Law in the early ’90s — it’s not because he’s a blind supporter of the Trump administration, but because he admires the former secretary of state’s work on peace in the Middle East.
