David Letterman had plenty to say in an entertaining, wide-ranging, must-read interview with David Marchese on Vulture Sunday night. The legendary former talk show host discussed life after TV, late-night television and “the man he calls Trumpy.”
Dave unloaded a barrage of zingers at the new President, a frequent guest/target on his CBS show:
I always regarded him as, if you’re going to have New York City, you gotta have a Donald Trump.
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.
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.’
I think I would be in the position to give him a bit of a scolding and he would have to sit there and take it.
