Felon Fact Check: Bernard Kerik on Elie Wiesel: Friend or Fib?

In a desperate attempt for the spotlight and whatever pocket change can be derived by a felon on federal supervised release, Bernard Kerik, pasted the late Elie Wiesel's photo all over his social media turning the passing into the most pathetic name-dropping attempt by posting Wiesel was a "friend". This came as a shock to those of us who know Felon Kerik beyond his frequent fibs.

Felon on supervised release went to prison for lying. He apparently continues to have a problem with the truth. He has been caught lying by omission, exaggeration, his spontaneous utterance of those "little white lies", using his small children as proof and shields from his lies and those big fat desperate bold tall tales which labeled him a "libel-proof felon" by many of Bernie Kerik's ex-friends in many a pending lawsuit.

We went searching for some evidence of this "friendship" in a Felon Fact Check. Here's what we found:

  • There is no mention of Elie Wiesel in Bernard Kerik's "New York Times Bestseller", "The Lost Son: Life in Pursuit of Justice". Certainly a good friend would be mentioned as an inspiration in such a relevant memoir of its time post-9/11?
  • In Felon Kerik's "From Jailer to Jailed" publication in 2015, there is a passing mention of Inmate #84888-054 Bernard Kerik reading Elie Wiesel's book in Cumberland Prison but no mention Mr. Wiesel is his "friend". Elie Wiesel is not worthy of a listing in the index of the book either.

  • Fibber Felon Bernard Kerik again mentions Mr. Wiesel as an author of "Night" as one of the books Inmate Kerik is reading in Cumberland FPC prison. Felon Kerik sent this blog to old friend John Picciano to post for him while incarcerated on Christmas, December 25, 2011. Again, no mention, Wiesel is a "friend".

  • We found plenty of association between the late Elie Wiesel and Kerik's ex-boss and ex-friend, Rudy Giuliani. Can one be a "friend" by association? We think not. 
  • There are no published pictures in any public archive that show Felon Bernard Kerik near or in the same photograph of Elie Wiesel. There are no published accounts of Elie Wiesel ever being in Bernard Kerik's company. Felon Kerik did not publish any photo of him and Elie Wiesel in Kerik's social media humblebrag of Wiesel's passing. 

  • We contacted several persons who may be able to verify Felon Bernard Kerik's claim he was a "friend" of Elie Wiesel. Dara D'Addio, the alleged co-author of Kerik's newest book, "From Jailed to Jailed" replied to us. She writes, "First, I wish to send my condolences to Mr. Wiesel's family. I did not know Mr. Wiesel but admired him for his writings and valuable literary contributions to peace and justice. I have gifted his books to several of those incarcerated to offer perspective and comfort in troubled times. I had several conversations with then Inmate Kerik regarding "Night" and Elie Wiesel. Inmate Kerik never mentioned Elie Wiesel as a "friend". I remember teasing Inmate Kerik that in the blog, he misspells Mr. Wiesel's first name as "Eli" reminding Kerik "Elie" is a Hebrew name meaning "height". I remember joking with Inmate Kerik that all he had to do was copy it off his book! Although Felon Kerik is not compelled to disclose all his friendships, I, too, was shocked in his calling the late Mr. Wiesel a "friend". Why would one save such a disclosure for the passing of your "friend"? Based upon my experience in a three-year intimate relationship with Kerik, it is suspect , sad and shocking. Elie Wiesel once said " The opposite of love is not hate, it's indifference." So in respect to Mr. Wiesel, at this time, I'll just leave it at that."
We may be wrong but it would appear by our research Felon Bernard Kerik has, once again, been caught in a Brian Williams-like fib of epic proportions! After the many lies in Bernard Kerik's life and the three legal battles with his ex-friends, we might suggest Felon Bernard Kerik re-examine his definition of "friend". To allegedly use the passing of such a great man, Elie Wiesel, as part of a desperate seemingly histrionic personality disorder attention grab is sad and pathetic.

"We must always take sides. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented..." - Elie Wiesel
