David Letterman walked away from TV back in 2015 after being regarded as the king of late night. During his years hosting 'Late Night With David Letterman', he welcomed President Trump to the stage on a number of occasions and he's just now opening up about how he really felt when Donald came to set.
"He was a joke of a wealthy guy," he told Vulture in an extensive interview that bashed the current President. While referring to Trump's guest appearances, the form host said, "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."
Letterman also admitted to having a nickname for Donald, he apparently refers to him as "Trumpy." He went on to say that Trump is "insulting the office" and he is an ignorant man who is "insulting to America, insulting to human rights, insulting to civil rights."
Trump fans certainly aren't happy with Letterman who was beloved by most Americans during his career. Sure, almost every late night host takes jabs at the President. It's a common gimmick that's understood by Washington and most politicians even take part in the harmless jokes. Trump has appeared on multiple late night shows and hosted SNL during the 2016 campaign.
But, now that Letterman is away from the desk, he's letting everything out of the bag. Dubbing Trump 'ignorant' is over-the-line for a person who is still considered a public figure. Instead of declaring that Trump is a national insult, he should take a moment to respect his president and realize that despite his political views the office deserve some respect!
Donald won the presidency! He isn't going anywhere for another four to eight years and Letterman needs to accept that. Some celebrities like Jennifer Garner have come around to reality and said that they're willing to give Trump a chance because he deserves it. Letterman needs to acknowledge that the President is winning over most Americans and it's better to be open to change then simply fight it out of ignorance.
