"Every American should condemn Tliab and Omar. It's shocking to me to read tweets saying Jews for Omar, Jews for Tliab. I agree with the President on this one. How can you be a Jew who is proud of your heritage and support two congresswomen who only single out Israel, who don't care what happens to Muslims in any other part of the world. These people are not being pro-Palestine, they are being anti-Israel."
---Alan Dershowitz on Jews who support Congresswomen Tliab and Omar
Alan Dershowitz, retired law professor at Harvard and author of the upcoming book "Defending Israel: The Story of My Relationship with My Most Challenging Client", spoke with Brian Kilmeade about why he does not believe President Trump misspoke and did not mean to suggest any Jew voting for a democrat is disloyal to America. Dershowitz also discussed why Israel had a perfect right to exclude Omar and Tliab but how it would have been smarter to put the onus on them by asking them to visit the Holocaust museum and have them say no. Plus, Alan Dershowitz discussed why he now knows who his true friends are after he supported Trump and revealed how fickle that old circle can be considering Anthony Scaramucci was invited to President Clinton's birthday party after he turned on President Trump.

(Brian Kilmeade) Now the most important question last year you made news by saying a lot of your friends we're not inviting you out to parties open the Boston area and those in Martha's Vineyard Martha's Vineyard because you were on Fox so much and you were supportive of the president on certain issues. Has your summer been better or worse?
(Alan Dershowitz) It's been much better because they haven't invited me and now I know who my true friends are. It's interesting. One of the people, ironically the woman who introduced me to Jeffrey Epstein probably the worst thing that's ever happened to me in my life, the lady the lady Lynne Rothchild who served as his kind of social pimp. She introduced him to everybody including President Clinton. She had a big party for President Clinton. It was written up in Vanity Fair. And guess who got invited? I didn't get invited of course because I am perceived as somebody who isn't sufficiently opposed to Trump. But guess who did get invited? Anthony Scaramucci my former student because he's now turned against Trump. So he gets invited to Lin Rothschild's big birthday party for President Clinton. But thankfully because that's not the kind of way I want to spend my life on Martha's Vineyard. I know who my real friends are. I know who my friends were who thought they were my friends only because I supported everything they supported politically down the line. But look if you want to be my friend you have to know I'm not politically correct. I choose my issues. I say what I believe is correct no matter where it lands. I define and construe the Constitution I think correctly whether it helps Trump or hurts Trump or helps Clinton or hurts Clinton. That's the way I do it and if you want to be my friend you have to accept me on my terms I'm not going to go and accept you on your terms.
