Dershowitz: I’m treated worse for defending Trump - than I was for O.J. Simpson

Posted: Jul 7th, 2018 - 1:53 pm

Fox News contributor Alan Dershowitz says in a new interview that the treatment he receives from his fellow Democrats over his comments about Robert Mueller's special counsel investigation is worse than what he received for his successful defense of former NFL star O.J. Simpson.

In an interview with The New York Times, Dershowitz discussed the fallout he had received after penning a recent column for The Hill arguing that President Trump was the victim of McCarthyite tactics employed by Mueller.

“I’m enjoying this,” Dershowitz said. “It’s a red badge of courage.”

"This is much worse than all that, because in those cases people were critical of me, but they were prepared to discuss it," he added. "They were prepared to have a dialogue.

Dershowitz tied the chilly reception he says he received in Martha's Vineyard to his frequent criticism of college "safe space" policies.

"Here, the people that I’m objecting to want to stop the dialogue. They don’t want to have the conversation. It will upset people at the dinner party or on the porch. This is like safe spaces in colleges," he said.

"Today the passions are so strong that if I do anything that is perceived as helping Donald Trump, I am an evil conspirator," Dershowitz added.

Dershowitz claimed in his opinion piece for The Hill that old colleagues and friends had decided to "shun" him for his views about the Mueller investigation, which he has said should end.

“At a party this week on Martha’s Vineyard, a woman said, 'If Dershowitz were here tonight, I’d stab him through the heart,” he said on Fox News’s “Tucker Carlson Tonight” on Thursday.

The commentary resulted in mockery on social media and on MSNBC's "Morning Joe," where Dershowitz was chided by the show's host Joe Scarborough for being Trump's "mouthpiece."

“I’m just not sure how this goes down in steel country,” added BBC World News reporter Katty Kay, a guest on the program. “Are they sitting there in Lorain, Ohio, saying ‘Oh my god, we’re so sorry that Mr. Dershowitz has come into trouble because he’s opposed the Mueller investigation.'”
