David Letterman Attacks Trump: He's a 'Psychotic,' 'Soulless Bastard'
Liberal late night host rips into President on Podcast interview
The former late-night host David Letterman took aim at President Donald Trump this week calling him a “psychotic” and a “soulless bastard," in a new interview.
Liberal Letterman declared on the Hollywood Reporter‘s “Awards Chatter” podcast his intentions to distance himself from the presdient, who he had a guest on his show over 30 times between 1982 and 2015.
When Letterman was reminded of the number of times he invited Trump onto his show, he seemed surprised.
“More than 30?” Letterman said.
“Wow! You’re welcome, America.”
“I think he just liked being on TV. I had no sense that he was the soulless bastard that he’s turned into,” he quipped.
“He used to be kind of like the boob of New York that pretended to be wealthy, or we thought he was wealthy, and now he’s just a psychotic. Is that putting too fine a point on it?” the former host added.
“I don’t even care if it’s recorded, I would just like to talk to the guy, because, as I said before, he knows me, I know him — what the hell went wrong?!”
According to a report from The Huffington Post in March, the “Late Show” host said if he ever met Trump again, he only has one question for him.
“I would say to him, Don, why are you such a putz?” Letterman revealed in a preview clip of “The Ellen DeGeneres Show."
The veteran comedian also acknowledged in the “Burning Questions” segment that he was “disappointed” in Trump’s administration.
Letterman has frequently attacked President Trump and his “America First" slogan that helped propel him to the White House.
Letterman claimed the president was once a “goofball” but now has become a “goon," in an interview with ABC’s The View last month.
“The tie and stuff, and they were all made in China. And you could tell that he — just a goofball. Like a bonehead,” said the comedian.
“When did you become a goon? When did that happen?”
Letterman told MSNBC also told MSNBC that Trump embarrasses the United States on the world stage and hoped he would lose the White House in 2020.
“As an American, I don’t like this man as the president of our country. I love being an American, but I don’t feel he represents me and I don’t like that,” he told host Willie Geist.
“I mean, even with other presidents that I’ve disagreed with politically, I felt like, “Okay, I can live with their representation.”
But I’m sick and tired of everybody wringing their hands about this. ‘Oh my God, did you hear what he did?’ Okay, let’s just settle this at the next election. Let’s stop yacking about what a goon he is.”
Letterman joins the long list of liberal Hollywood millionaire celebrities opposing Trump.
Trump is yet to respond to Letterman's attacks.
