Larry David, Alan Dershowitz get into verbal altercation at grocery store
Actor Larry David and attorney Alan Dershowitz reportedly got into a verbal altercation in a Martha’s Vineyard general store over the lawyer’s ties to the Trump administration, according to Page Six.
“We can still talk, Larry,” Dershowitz, an opinion contributor at The Hill, reportedly told the comedian and “Curb Your Enthusiasm” star after the two ran into one another.
“No. No. We really can’t. I saw you. I saw you with your arm around Pompeo!” David retorted. “It’s disgusting!”
Dershowitz replied that Mike Pompeo, the former secretary of State under former President Trump, was a student of his at Harvard Law, where Dershowitz is a professor.
“I greet all of my former students that way. I can’t greet my former students?” he asked David.
David replied that he found Dershowitz’s relationship to the Trump administration “disgusting.”
“Your whole enclave — it’s disgusting. You’re disgusting!” he said before walking away.
Dershowitz confirmed the conversation with David, a known Democrat, to Page Six. The two used to be friends, he noted, adding that the encounter “wasn’t funny at all.”
He added, “I was worried that he was going to have a stroke,” claiming David “screamed” and “yelled” at him in public.
Dershowitz also identified himself as “liberal Democrat,” telling Page Six that he “voted for Biden just as enthusiastically as Larry did.”
He blamed his former friend’s reaction on his Hollywood ties and condemned him for the outburst.
“While he was writing bad jokes, I was helping to bring about peace in the Middle East,” Dershowitz said. “What has he done?”
Representatives for David did not respond to Page Six’s request for comment.
