Trump-defending attorney Alan Dershowitz on Monday night drew hackles from around the internet when he tried to defend himself against charges that he had traveled to the infamous island where deceased billionaire Jeffrey Epstein allegedly brought underage sex-trafficking victims.
In a tweet that seemingly came out of nowhere, Dershowitz accused someone of lying about him traveling to the Little Saint James island where Epstein and his friends allegedly abused untold numbers of underage girls.
“My wife and daughter were with me the one time I flew to the island, years before Guiffre met Epstein and years before he was suspected of wrongdoing,” Dershowitz wrote. “Show me a flight log that has me going to island without my wife. You can’t because there isn’t any. I never went to the island without my wife and I can prove it. So stop lying.”
Dershowitz’s claim that he brought his family with him on a trip to what has been dubbed “Pedophile Island” wasn’t quite the strong defense he believed it to be, however, and he was quickly inundated with ridicule.
Check out some responses below.
Why is Alan Dershowitz so nervous right now? Get ready for another absurd "I left my underwear on" defense.

Dershowitz is the one who says he "kept his underwear on" and only took a massage because the teen living with Epstein without her parents was such an expert in massage therapy, right? I get the Greedy Old Perverts mixed up sometimes.

If you're wondering why Dershowitz is defending his relaxing vacations on pedophile island, it's because a federal judge is weighing whether to unseal a settled case against Ghislaine Maxwell, which includes a complaint and a deposition transcript in which names are named

Dershowitz is hysterical. His "wife was along".
I was once at a three couple dinner in at a strip mall in Vegas (they have good sushi in those places) and my best friend said he was going to smoke and he ducked into an Asian massage parlor & was back before dessert.

"You don't understand: I brought my wife and child with me to the pedophile island," he said in his defense. https://t.co/XfDjuHV0Yi

“I brought my daughter to jeffrey epstein’s pedophile island” is the type of defense only a Real Harvard Man could cook up https://t.co/PuFNqmMUAG

it rules that dersh is some fancy harvard law guy and he uses his blue-check twitter account exclusively to contest various accusations of being a pervert and literally nothing else https://t.co/lSknChJ2OX
