Civil rights attorney Alan Dershowitz said Tuesday that "I'm prepared to give a pass" to Sean Spicer for his Hitler comments — but he slammed the leader of the Anne Frank Center for Mutual Respect for calling on President Donald Trump to fire his White House spokesman.
"What happened here is the guy screwed up," the Harvard Law School professor emeritus told Don Lemon on CNN. "He apologized.
"He apologized from his heart. I'm prepared to give him a pass on this."
But Dershowitz then ripped Steven Goldstein, the executive director of the Anne Frank Center, who immediately demanded Spicer's termination via Twitter:
Dershowitz bashed Goldstein as "a total phony," calling the Anne Frank Center "a minor institution, no credibility within the Jewish community.
"He's constantly trying to get headlines, overblowing everything."
