Larry David’s screaming rants are legendary. He’s essentially made a living off of screaming at people. His tirades are probably way funnier though when you’re not on the receiving end of one of them. Especially if Larry David virtually out of the blue starts screaming at you in public. That’s exactly what happened to his former friend, famed attorney, Alan Dershowitz. Larry David allegedly went after him at a grocery store in the Martha’s Vineyard area. A couple of witnesses overheard exactly what David was irate over.
It’s A Political Issue
Politics has certainly become a great divide in America. This public shouting match between Larry David and Harvard Law professor Alan Dershowitz is living proof of that. The two were once upon a time good friends. However, Dershowitz became friends with a very close Trump ally, in specific, former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. According to witnesses to the event, this is what David started shouting at Dershowitz over. Things then certainly escalated from there. The argument though could’ve just well been between two former middle school bffs who are on each other over getting friendly with someone who was a sworn enemy!
How It Started
There was probably a previous interaction between the two before what sources were able to recollect. Most of the witnesses though remember that this is how it started, Dershowitz told David,
“We can still talk, Larry.”, This is where Larry David starts going literally nuts. He calls out now, former friend, Dershowitz, over his political affiliations. David replies,
“No. No. We really can’t. I saw you. I saw you with your arm around [former Trump Secretary of State Mike] Pompeo! It’s disgusting!”
He’s My Student
Dershowitz defended his relationship with Pompeo saying that he was his former student. David was having none of it, though. The interaction went as follows,
“He’s my former student [at Harvard Law]. I greet all of my former students that way. I can’t greet my former students?”
David replied “It’s disgusting. Your whole enclave — it’s disgusting. You’re disgusting!”
The most bizarre scene of the whole incident may have not even been the shouting. According to onlookers, after the discussion as Larry David was turning around to walk away, Dershowitz takes his shirt off to reveal an undershirt that read, ‘It’s The Constitution Stupid!’. He stood there and just let Larry David soak the image in!
Like Something Out Of A Movie
In reading this, we are sure that more than one person is going to think that this is all a lie. Different news outlets did reach out to Dershowitz to confirm the story. Which, he did. Not only that, he went on to give more details about the encounter. Saying that David screamed and yelled until his face turned bright red. While then adding,
“I was worried that he was going to have a stroke,”
Grocery shopping in Martha’s Vineyard seems like a riskier endeavor than most people probably imagine.
