David Letterman Has Harsh Words For Trump In Recent Interview

President Trump has caused plenty of controversy since he took over the White House in January. Since then, many respected public figures have spoken out against Trump. Now, recently retired late night host David Letterman has joined those critics. In a recent interview with the Associated Press, Letterman had some harsh words for President Trump.

 

Letterman started out the interview by urging Americans to spring into action.

 

“We know there’s something wrong, but what I’m tired of is people, daily, nightly, on all the cable news shows telling us there’s something wrong. I just think we ought to direct our resources and our energies to doing something about it. And other people have made this point: If the guy was running Dairy Queen, he’d be gone. This guy couldn’t work at the Gap. So why do we have to be victimized by his fecklessness, his ignorance?” Letterman said.

 

He then talked about how he hoped that Trump could have been a good president, but it is now clear that is not possible

 

“I wish it was Trump, but it’s not, so let’s just stop whining about what a goon he is and figure out a way to take him aside and put him in a home,” Letterman stated.

 

Letterman ended the interview by taking one final shot at Trump, saying, “He’s so sensitive. He doesn’t understand why people aren’t nicer to him in the press and you just say, well, ‘Donnie, look at the tone of the campaign that you ran.’”
