Professor Alan Dershowitz challenged “Morning Joe” to a debate, saying a woman wanted to stab him for having personal opinions during a Thursday interview on “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”


“Are you doing the bidding of Vladimir Putin?” Tucker asked Dershowitz.

“Of course not. I hate Vladimir Putin. I hate what he stands for. I hate tyranny in the world. I’m not doing the bidding of President Trump. I opposed Donald Trump’s immigration policy, his approach to Charlottesville and when I have an opportunity, I tell him that,” Dershowitz said.

He added that he would make the same criticisms even if Hillary Clinton were president.

Dershowitz then described a scenario at a Martha’s Vineyard party where a woman said she “would stab him through the heart” if he were attending the party.

“Put aside clam bakes and cocktail parties and put aside what ‘Morning Joe’ was saying. I challenge morning Joe to have me on the show when he mocks me so I can respond. It’s easy and kind of unfair to attack someone and not give them the opportunity to respond. Let’s see if he has the guts to put me on the show to tell his viewers the truth,” Dershowitz dared.
