Letterman Wants To Put Trump In A ‘Home’

David Letterman comes out of retirement to tell America that it’s time to take Trump aside and put him in a home.

Retired “Late Show” host David Letterman and Trump go way back with the bigoted billionaire appearing on Letterman’s show several times over the years as Rolling Stone reported in March of this year.



“I always regarded him as, if you’re going to have New York City, you gotta have a Donald Trump. He was a joke of a wealthy guy. We didn’t take him seriously,” Letterman told Rolling Stone.

Continuing, Letterman elaborated on Trump’s appearances: “He’d sit down, and I would just start making fun of him. He never had any retort. He was big and doughy, and you could beat him up. He seemed to have a good time, and the audience loved it, and that was Donald Trump.”

Letterman has come out of retirement on several occasions to mock Trump, most recently for an interview with the Associated Press earlier this month.

Asked about Trump, Letterman began by saying he is tired of the media coverage of Trump’s incompetence.

“Here’s what I keep saying: We know there’s something wrong, but what I’m tired of is people ― daily, nightly, on all the cable news shows ― telling us there’s something wrong.”



Continuing, Letter suggested that it’s time we “direct our resources and our energies to do something about it,” instead of merely complaining.

“This guy couldn’t work at The Gap,” Letterman said, adding: “So why do we have to be victimized by his fecklessness, his ignorance?”

Concluding his thoughts, Letterman stated that felt bad for people who voted for Trump expecting him to follow through with his campaign promises, adding that: “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.”

Here is Letterman’s full response:

Here’s what I keep saying: We know there’s something wrong, but what I’m tired of is 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. And other people have made this point: 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? 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. 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.
