Nor is it about Dershowitz’s constant defending his buddy Trump.
Nor is it that “Dershowitz and the president share a number of friends and acquaintances, including Patriots owner Bob Kraft. The two men met years ago in Kraft’s suite at a Patriots game, he said. “I liked him,” Dershowitz said. “He was very nice, he was very affable. We talked football.”
Just as an aside. Trump and Kraft are best friends. I read, “Just a reminder, the “spa” where Kraft committed his alleged crimes is located about 20 miles north of Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort.” In early July Kraft was sitting at the same table as Trump, the Qatari Emir, and next to Christine Lagarde, in a dinner honoring the Emir while criminal charges against him were pending. I’m sure Lagarde had that itchy, creepy/crawly feeling after she left.
Nor is it about Alan Dershowitz telling us how he did get a massage, or massages, at Jeffrey Epstein’s mansion in Palm Beach but he kept his underwear on and the masseuse was an adult and not one of the thirteen year old girls that seemed to be ubiquitous around Jeffrey’s den of iniquity. Why he was getting a massage at Jeffrey’s diddling house of horror he did not explain. He’s now pathetically telling the world that he couldn’t have raped some young girls because he had a “perfect, perfect sex life during the relevant period of time.” Ah, it recalls Hamlet telling his mother: “The lady doth protest too much, methinks”,
Nor is it about the hostility that exists between Dershowitz and Bulger. I wrote about that years ago when I tried to discern what was it that made Dershowitz act toward Bulger as if he was the camp commander of a Nazi concentration camp. I came to the conclusion: “I could never put my finger on it. I tried to think of the way both men communicate. I realized listening to Bulger talk is like enjoying a perfect spring day; listening to Dershowitz is like hunkering down awaiting a late fall northeaster. One is light; the other is darkness. One leaves you happy, the other leaves you angry. One lifts your spirits; the other gives thoughts of suicide. Then right out-of-the-blue it came. Bulger has the one thing that I’d suggest Dershowitz would like more than anything else in the world: a quick wit defined as: “a natural aptitude for using words and ideas in a quick and inventive way to create humor.” It’s a good feeling to finally solve a puzzle.”
Nor does it have anything to do with the public dispute between Dershowitz and Bulger at a judge’s nomination. Bulger called him and his lawyer friend “crafty.” “connivers” and “manipulators” who had “no moral constraints.” Bulger called upon those present to “look at them, look at them.” Afterward Dershowitz slunk away. Later when asked about his comments about Dershowitz, Bulger said: “The man is a liar. And it makes no difference what his nationality or his religion is. He is a liar. And he is a murderer of reputation. And he is a conniver and he is whatever else I called him that day.”
None of these subjects in which Dershowitz has been involved is what I want to write about. There is another matter which he has stuck his nose into that is worth exposing to show the way he has no difficulty like his friend Trump to tell less than the whole truth. Trump, in his most recent disgraceful performance stood by while people chanted “send her back.” He would then denying that he did it. This is typical of the Dershowitz approach to many matters including the one I will write about tomorrow.
