Curb Your Enthusiasm star Larry David confronted attorney Alan Dershowitz about his ties to the Trump administration at a grocery store in Martha’s Vineyard last week.

Dershowitz told David that they could talk about the situation.

To that, David responded by reportedly yelling, “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!”

Dershowitz protested, “He’s my former student [at Harvard Law]. I greet all of my former students that way. I can’t greet my former students?”

“It’s disgusting. Your whole enclave — it’s disgusting. You’re disgusting!” David shouted.

Dershowitz confirmed the fight to Page Six. He said that he had greeted David, but the star had walked away, and when Dershowitz tried to speak again, it instigated the altercation.

He said he was “worried that [David] was going to have a stroke.”

The professor attempted to defend his work with Trump, stating that he initially sided with Pompeo and the Trump administration because of his former student’s efforts with Israel and the Palestinians. He also said that David was not the only friend he lost when he defended the former president in his impeachment.

“While he was writing bad jokes, I was helping to bring about peace in the Middle East,” he said. “What has he done? Larry is a knee-jerk radical. He takes his politics from Hollywood. He doesn’t read a lot. He doesn’t think a lot. It’s typical of what happens now on the Vineyard. People won’t talk to each other if they don’t agree with their politics.”
