The former late night king needed no prompting in his answers regarding President Trump in a new interview....
And it's MUST read!!
Speaking with 'New York Magazine', David Letterman opened up about the Trump administration, everything he's done up to this point in his presidency, and more.
Dave started off with how he feels late night hosts now have an obligation to skewer Trump due to all of his lies and crazy antics:
"Can you imagine not doing Trump jokes? That would seem bizarre," before heaping high praise upon Alec Baldwin's 'SNL' impression: "Comedy’s one of the ways that we can protect ourselves. Alec Baldwin deserves a Presidential Medal of Freedom. Sadly, he’s not going to get it from this president."
Letterman continued praise, but this time to other late night hosts Seth Myers and Stephen Colbert for their constant digs at Trump. When asked about Jimmy Fallon's no infamous hair tussling moment with Donald, Dave said:
"I don’t want to criticize Jimmy Fallon, but I can only tell you what I would have done in that situation: I would have gone to work on Trump. But the thing about it is, you don’t have to concoct a complicated satirical premise to joke about Donald Trump,”
And then, needing no prompting from the interviewer, Letterman took aim at Trump's administration, calling Steve Bannon "the hunchback of Notre Dame", Stephen Miller "a creepy guy who fell out of a truck", and Sean Spicer "a boob". He also took aim at Kellyanne Conway, saying "Boy, if this administration decides you need counseling — whoa".
Remembering back to older interviews he had done with Trump, Letterman added:
"He was a joke of a wealthy guy. We didn’t take him seriously. He’d sit down, and I would just start making fun of him. He never had any retort. He was big and doughy, and you could beat him up. He seemed to have a good time, and the audience loved it, and that was Donald Trump."
Finally, he explained how he would love to conduct one final interview in his career, and sit down with "Trumpy":
"I would just start with a list. “You did this. You did that. Don’t you feel stupid for having done that, Don? And who’s this goon Steve Bannon, and why do you want a white supremacist as one of your advisers? Come on, Don, we both know you’re lying. Now, stop it."
