After Attacking Trump, David Letterman Just Got TERRIBLE News That’ll Ruin Him…

He retired from hosting the “Late Show with David Letterman” in 2015, but didn’t exactly go quietly into the night. Only months after retiring, Letterman made an appearance during a stop on Martin Short and Steve Martin’s A Very Stupid Conversation tour in order to throw shade at presidential candidate Donald J. Trump, wrote US Weekly:

“I am so happy to be out of the house! I retired and I had no regrets, none. I was happy. I was complacent. I was satisfied. I was content. And then a couple of days ago, Donald Trump said he was running for president. I have made the biggest mistake of my life, ladies and gentlemen.”

He then went on to do an infamous Letterman “Top Ten” list about Trump:

Given the fact Trump had been a guest on Letterman’s show many times, his criticisms may seem out-of-place. Letterman explained what made him change his feelings about Trump to The New York Times:

“I’ve known Donald Trump for a long time, and I always thought he was exactly what New York City needed to have: the big blowhard billionaire. “By God, I’m Donald Trump, and I date models, and I put up buildings, and everything is gold.” Nobody took him seriously, and people loved him when he would come on the show. I would make fun of his hair, I would call him a slumlord, I would make fun of his ties. And he could just take a punch like nothing. He was the perfect guest.

But things changed when Trump ran for office:

“So now, he decides he’s running for president. And right out of the box, he goes after immigrants and how they’re drug dealers and they’re rapists. And everybody swallows hard. And they think, oh, well, somebody will take him aside and say, “Don, don’t do that.” But it didn’t happen.

And then, I can remember him doing an impression, behind a podium, of a reporter for The New York Times who has a congenital disorder. And then I thought, if this was somebody else — if this was a member of your family or a next-door neighbor, a guy at work — you would immediately distance yourself from that person.

And that’s what I thought would happen. Because if you can do that in a national forum, that says to me that you are a damaged human being. If you can do that, and not apologize, you’re a person to be shunned.”

Letterman has since continued on with his criticisms, letting loose during an interview with Vulture with a vengeance, accusing Trump of lying and being crazy. The comedian also hit Trump over his battle with the media and the Russian controversy.

Letterman told Vulture:

“I’ll tell you what really got up my nose — do you have a minute? — was the John Lewis thing. Congressman John Lewis. […] So he announces he’s boycotting the inauguration. Trump hops on his Twitter device and describes John Lewis as just another all-talk, no-action congressman, so sad.

Holy God. […] I was about John Lewis’s age when he marched across the Edmund Pettus Bridge. Would I have had the guts to do that? The all-talk John Lewis goes down there and gets a goddamned skull fracture.

I mean, Trumpy will never have to worry about a skull fracture because of the hair. […] But in addition to every other thing that’s wrong with the Trump, he’s ignorant in a way that’s insulting to the office, insulting to America, insulting to human rights, insulting to civil rights, insulting to John Lewis. Trump saying that broke my heart. I thought, You stupid son of a bitch. You ought to have known better than that.”

Letterman also stated that while his “Worldwide Pants” company was “on pause” for now, he is hoping to get it back up and running.

But what seemed to bother him the most was Trump’s criticism of Congressman John Lewis boycotting the inauguration, after saying he didn’t recognize Trump as a “legitimate president”:

    LETTERMAN IS JUST ANOTHER FILTHY RICH LIBERAL WHO HAS NO TOLERANCE FOR ANYONE WHO THINKS DIFFERENTLY THAN HE DOES. I used to watch Dave every night of the week and thought he was the funniest late night host. I could ignore his constant bashing of any thing Conservative in order to enjoy his interviews with the guests. Now I don’t watch any of the late night talk shows because they are nothing but Trump bashing liberal shills. There is such a thing as over-kill and all of these “comedians” think that telling the same jokes night after night is funny. I do not. The History channel is much more entertaining than these late night shows.

    Just go to show, give someone a comedy show, and keep it on air long enough and they think they can tell America what is really the truth! Through their eyes they see nothing but disdain and arrogance! David Letterman is a typical New Yorker who cannot see the REAL America through All the concrete buildings! Shut-up, Dave!

    Well, perhaps if you all didn’t spend so much time on political correctness, you might have listened to the “meat” of Trump’s speeches, and more importantly, the American people. The Liberals have misinterpreted most of these so-called infractions, and completely missed the Platform Trump was gathering from the American people. Maybe one day you all will look back and re-access your PC liberal asses and what Trump was referring to.. Look at the liberal response , since the election…..riots , killings, and refusal to listen to others…….now , if we have gotten that bad in 8 yrs under Obama, how bad would America have been with 4-8 more yrs of Hillary! We would have been beyond saving! Truthfully! It is time to deflate and destroy radicalism ! It will destroy this country, if Sharia Law doesn’t do it first! The threat of Sharia not only getting a hold on America, but actually dominating America at some point, is scarier than hell, and no one will allow themselves, on the liberal side, to believe that any group would abuse their privilege like that…..but it is going to happen if left unchecked, and Christian will join the Jews, this time, in being persecuted and killed. Name a country that has lived successfully with the Islamic culture, once they accumulated large populations in a host country…….name one! Now, go forward about 50 yrs……what do you really see? Equality for all? Not hardly!

    More trump bashing, I really think it’s because they secretly insanely jealous of Mr. Trump because he is able to acomplish so much more than they could ever hope to achieve in their whole lifetime in just a few short weeks, they being the little fish leaves them with nothing better to do but attempt to belittle someone in order to build up their tiny tiny egos through what they believe to be comedy but truthfully if they could see themselves through the eyes of others they would realize they are showing the world just how small and useless to society they really are.
