David Letterman blasts Donald Trump, says he’s ‘despicable’

David Lettermandavid-letterman has cracked many jokes at the expense of politicians, but the former Late Show host isn’t kidding when it comes to talking Donald Trump.

David, 69, initially appeared fairly neutral in his interview with Tom Brokaw for Dateline NBC‘s On Assignment. Discussing the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, David said, “I understand that he’s repugnant to people. But…the men putting together the Constitution, witnessing this election, wouldn’t they have just said, ‘That’s part of the way we set it up. Good luck’?”

He then shifted gears and offered his own opinion on Donald when he said, “There’s nothing illegal going on. It’s just he’s despicable.”

David added, “…you hear, ‘the great thing about America is anybody can grow up to be President.’ Ooh, jeez.”

With a laugh, he then said, “I guess that might be true.”

The David-Tom interview was conducted in David’s hometown of Indianapolis over the Memorial Day weekend and will air on Sunday, June 12.

In the interview, David also shares his memories of the legendary Johnny Carson.

David joins a long list of celebrities who have voiced their distaste for Donald, including Sarah Silverman, Cher, J.K. Rowling and Johnny Depp, who came forward last month and said Donald would be the “last” President if elected.

    Is Dave training to be a department store Santa?

    I almost want to find out what a world with Donald Trump as president would be like. Call it morbid curiosity I guess

    Do people really care what David Letterman thinks? I am not a Trump supporter but I get irritated by armchair quarterbacks! If you feel so strongly, go out and make changes by actually doing something yourself

    “If you feel so strongly, go out and make changes by actually doing something yourself.” YOU try delivering toys to every child in the world in one night…

    I guess he’s preparing to film a Miracle on 34th street sequel. Or reboot.

    Y’all beat me to the Santa jokes.

    I kind of agree with Lambofjob. It’s morbid curiosity and actually see what he does with that Country and the world. That’d be funny if he actually pulls a 180 and does some good!
