Alan Dershowitz claims Obama would only come to his 75th birthday on Martha’s Vineyard – if he uninvited Geraldo Rivera
- Attorney Alan Dershowitz told Charlie Kirk on Monday that he was shunned for defending former President Donald Trump
- He said ‘people have lost all sense of decency when it comes to having different points of view’ and called the Liberals particularly bad
- Dershowitz then recalled that ten years ago President Barack Obama refused to come to his birthday party because Fox News’ Geraldo Rivera had been invited.
Attorney Alan Dershowitz revealed Monday that President Barack Obama would only attend his 75th birthday party if he uninvited Fox News Channel host Geraldo Rivera.
Dershowitz, who represented President Donald Trump during his first impeachment, appeared on The Charlie Kirk Show and spoke about how he was treated by liberal friends for continuing to side with the former president.
He told conservative Kirk that his defense of Trump “has cost me dearly,” saying “people have lost all sense of decency when it comes to having different points of view” and called those on the left particularly petty.
Dershowitz said that for his 75th birthday in 2013, “President Obama was invited and he said he would come, but when he found out that Geraldo Rivera was also invited, basically his office said, unless you don’t uninvite Geraldo Rivera, I’m not coming”. ‘
“And I’m a loyal guy, I told the President of the United States no, Geraldo Rivera is coming, you can stay away, and the President of the United States stayed away from my 75th birthday because that I invited Geraldo Rivera,” recalls Dershowitz.
Appearing on The Charlie Kirk on Monday, attorney Alan Dershowitz said President Barack Obama declined to attend his 75th birthday party 10 years ago because he invited Fox News Channel’s Geraldo Rivera .
The White House had asked Alan Dershowitz to uninvite Geraldo Rivera (left) from Fox News if the attorney wanted President Barack Obama (right) to attend his 75th birthday party in 2013.
The former lawyer for OJ Simpson and Harvey Weinstein added that he “would do this any day of the week”.
“I believe in loyalty. I believe in friendships. I don’t agree with Geraldo on everything, but he’s my friend, so of course I invited him to my 75th birthday and I invite him to my 85th birthday,’ Dershowitz continued.
The lawyer will be 85 on September 1.
Like the Obamas, Dershowitz is a regular at Martha’s Vineyard, but said he’s been shunned lately.
“My old friends from the radical left, one of them was walking on the beach yesterday and he saw me coming and he took a sharp right turn, climbed up the dunes, I thought ‘he would fall to avoid even seeing me – and that’s how it is today,’ Dershowitz said.
“And the library canceled me, my synagogue canceled me. The community center canceled me. The book show about Martha’s Vineyard — I’m probably Martha’s Vineyard’s best-selling author and they canceled me,’ he continued.
“It’s just that they don’t want to hear opposing views — they’re not liberals — it’s called progressive, but it’s regressive,” the lawyer added.
Elsewhere on the show, Dershowitz told Kirk that he still considers himself a liberal.
He noted how he supported gay rights, abortion, gun control and environmental protection, within reason.
But he still believed Trump was getting a raw deal.
Dershowitz insisted that all legal proceedings against the former president be suspended until after the 2024 presidential election.
“There should be no trials taking place during elections. This really constitutes — whether deliberate or not — election interference,” Dershowitz explained.
