The ex Late Show host opened up about his political views and expressed his opinion on President Donald Trump in his latest interview with Vulture, and he didn’t hold back.
In the interview, that was posted this Sunday, Letterman compared Trump to the head of a family named “Larry,” and here’s what he said:
“If Larry behaved the way Donald behaves, for even a six-week period, the family would get together and say, ‘Jesus, somebody better call the doctor.’ Then they’d ask him to step down. But Trump’s the president and he can lie about anything from the time he wakes up to what he has for lunch and he’s still the president.”
“I don’t get that,” he concluded.
Democrats Need More Spine
The 69-year-old former TV host also pointed out that we need to stop wasting energy on talking about Trump. Instead, we should concentrate on doing something more constructive and effective.
This is how Letterman called out Democrats:
“We don’t need more confirmation that there’s something wrong with Donald Trump. Let’s instead find ways to rebuild what is rational. And the Democrats, goddamn it, get a little backbone, get a little spine.”
Letterman stepped down from CBS’ “Late Show” about 2 years ago, in May 2015 to be more precise, but he has been using every opportunity he was given to be vocal about Trump and U.S. politics altogether.
Last October he talked to the New York Times and said Trump needed to “see a psychiatrist,” while a few months earlier he also described him as “repugnant to people.”
Can’t wait for his next interview, though!
