During an interview with The Associated Press, former late-night show host David Letterman called Trump a “goon” who should be put into a home.
In his interview, he says, “I know there’s trouble in this country and we need a guy who can fix that trouble. 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.”
He revealed that he is “tired of 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,” he continued.
He makes the comparison to a Dairy Queen worker.
“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?”
He also stated that Trump’s behavior is “insulting.”
“But it’s just the behavior is insulting to Americans, whether you voted for him or not – and I feel bad for people who did vote for him because he promised them things that they really needed and one wonders if he’s really going to come through,” Letterman continued. “I know there’s trouble in this country and we need a guy who can fix that trouble. 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 is currently working on a series called Boiling the Frog with Senator Al Franken. The series strives to raise awareness about climate change with a bit of humor. You can watch the first season on Funny or Die.
