Letterman: Trump needs to be in a ‘home’

Long-time comedian and television host David Letterman took shots at President Donald Trump in a recent interview with The Associated Press, calling the president a “goon” who needs to be put in a nursing home.

“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,” Letterman said during the interview, on a press tour for his new Funny or Die show with Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.).

The show, “Boiling the Frog With Senator Al Franken,” made its debut on Monday and will air weekly episodes. Franken’s goal is to “fight back” against science-based world issues like “climate change.”

When asked whether or not he wanted to be a part of late-night television in the current political climate, Letterman said, “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,” he added. “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.”

About the project, Franken told the AP:

“Since taking office, President Trump has decided to disregard science in order to repeatedly put the short-sighted interests of his friends in the fossil fuel industry ahead of the safety of our planet,” he said.

You might be happy Kim Dung Pig would love to have you there I hear he loves Red People!!! Why do you bother intelligent people on here that want to speak about real issues??? You are sick!

          • The Redman

      Thank God for all those in Indiana that support intelligence and common sense! Letterman is a puppet of the Liberal media and making money from morons and wackos! .Quote.. Never give a sucker an even break! WC Feilds so let the suckers keep watching and he will keep robbing them with nonsense and bullcrap as he is getting richer and richer everyday! It’s all about money unlike Pres. Trump that doesn’t need it! Obamanation stole so much from the American people where is the outrage??? Makes you wonder how many stupid people there are in America??

    • The Redman

      Y, is it because yo kind in “Indiana” R inbreeds. hahahahahhahahah

  • Ruff

    Nice to see this scumbag stopped sexually assaulting his female subordinates long enough to run his mouth.

    • Jorge

      Speaking of sexually assaulting females…on, forget it. Everybody already knows he settled those lawsuits (even though “I never settle lawsuits..” D.T.)

      • Ruff

        None of the ‘alleged’ assaults to which you refer, were against females working as subordinates for him. Are you able to discern the difference, fool? Most ignorant people attempt to hide the fact, you’re an exception. If you were a little brighter, you’d be embarrassed.

        • phil62

          Only a “fool” would call a total stranger that he/she knows absolutely nothing about would call another human a fool. If the shoe fits you wear it.

          • Ruff

            “Better to remain silent and be thought a fool, than to speak out and remove all doubt”……..Abraham Lincoln. Some basis for my comment, idiot.

    • Pandabear

      Stinking Traitor!! Go to N Korea Monkey Brain!

      • Ruff

        Yea, you sound like a ‘retired college professor’. Back to the basement, idiot.

    • Pandabear

      You are Jealous because you are a serious loser! Maybe not hired because you are not employable..I feel bad for you! President Trump has it all..beautiful family .lots of money.. he worked for his presidency and that’s how it is…you are an insignificant moron…so go to a Christian Church and find help and maybe a Psychiatrist if you are an Antsiest..you are an idiot Stop saying stupid crap on here! It only makes you look stupid. Just annoys us intelligent people with brains..I am a Retired College Professor. Go away Ruff!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      • Ruff

        Indicating you’re a retired college professor tells anyone with an IQ above room temperature all they need to know.

  • Dan Williams

    Tell him to look in the mirror before suggesting that someone be put into a home. As far as the climate goes, I can tell you that it is basically the same as it was 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, & 70 years ago, since I have been around that long. Hottest summer was 1980 by far. Since then, we have experienced global cooling. Check actual historical facts. No need to get hysterical about it! LOL.

    • Jorge

      Right, Dan, what do all these bleeping scientists know with all their bleeping studies? All they had to do is talk to the Dan-man.

      • USAFIRST

        I thought ol,e DAN was in the pen for false news peddeling – ha ha ha !!

  • The Redman

    white-folks even hate other white-folks. they’ve ruined america. hahahahahahahahahahah

  • Somsak1@aol.com

    It kind of figures that Letterman would hook up with another wingnut even more left leaning that he is – failed comedian Al Franken. A while back, I was at the Minnesota State Fair when some fresh faced campaign worker came running after me wanting to know if I would contribute to Franken reelection. You should have seen the look on his face when I told him that I wouldn’t give Franken “the sweat off my balls”!

    • Jorge

      HAHAHAHAHAHA! That is just soooo cute.

  • Concerned

    Just one look at his face (before he even opens his mouth) tells us who the real “goon” might be. If Trump ever sat next to Letterman in a civil conversation, in a matter of minutes, it would become very apparent of how disconnected Letterman is from the real world. These types live in their own fantasy world and will never know what is important to the working people! Sorry David.

    One look at Dave and I think he needs to be in a home. I’d rather spend time with DJT any day!

  • Rich Kenny

    This from the mouth of still another “actor” which has slipped from the status of real citizen to one who only reads and parrots things that others have written for him.. evidently has no original mind nor ideas to portray on his own… I do wish that these over paid citizens of hollywood, whether it be of the big screen or the small screen would keep out of that about which they evidently know nothing . What credentials has he to support some diagnosis of this nature..(I don’t think one needs an education to become a comic!! in fact it is probably better that you have the least expected). It is more likely that he (letterman) should be the one assigned to a retirement home… without phone and other outgoing media. RETIRED!!! SO STFU!!!

    • Jorge

      Huh? Who overwrote this for you? Where is your expertise?

  • Don Harris

    Take a shower, shave and go cheat on your wife again. His new best friend al I’m a beat off Franken shows what a moron he really is. Hollywood elitist. Not funny either

  • Rodney Andregg

    Letterman …..here’s some letters for You E.S.A.D……..You say you give-up ok….it means Eat Shit And Die.

  • David Elsperger

    What happened Letterman did you and Franken escape from your rest home!!! Man I miss Johnny Carson, there hasn’t been anyone on late night TV since he retired and passed rest his soul!!

    • grinnie

      And Jack Paar before Carson…..both class acts. They don’t make them like that anymore.

  • Did someone tell Letterman that he was still relevant? Oh, that’s right, he never was! Read some pretty ugly sh** about Davey boy recently, apparently he is quite the ass****, and I agree!!

  • artalem

    Look who’s talking about being in a home!

    Trump Touts ‘Big Win’ for Border Wall

    President Trump tweeted Wednesday evening about a positive development regarding his campaign pledge to build a wall across the U.S.-Mexico border: A House Appropriations Committee bill that was introduced Tuesday, which allocates $1.6 billion to begin construction.

    “Big WIN today for building the wall. It will secure the border & save lives. Now the full House & Senate must act!” he tweeted along with a link to a White House blog post about the legislation.

    “Keeping Americans safe by protecting our homeland is a top priority. This funding bill provides the resources to begin building a wall along our southern border, enhance our existing border security infrastructure, hire more border patrol agents, and fund detention operations,” said House Appropriations Homeland Security Subcommittee Chairman John Carter.

    Of the $13.8 billion allocated to customs and border protection, $1.6 billion is for the wall, $100 million will go toward hiring 500 additional Border Patrol agents, $106 million for aircraft and sensors, $131 million for new technology, and $109 million for “non-intrusive inspection equipment.”

    Earlier in the day, DHS spokesman David Lapan said that the requested funding would be crucial to moving the project beyond current repairs, replacements and prototype projects.

    “On the DHS side it’s clear that we’ve gotten a direction to secure the southern border, that a wall and barrier is part of that process along with people and technology and that funding from Congress is required for us to move forward on that,” he said.

    Conservative lawmakers in recent days had begun warning that they would pull their votes from a budget and spending plan that failed to fund the wall. (The Hill)

    It should be noted, however, that the FY 2018 funding bill for the Department of Homeland Security negates that Mexico pay for the construction of a wall, as Trump also promised.

    So says Letterman who looks like Grizzly Adams, and has lost touch with reality !!!!

    • USAFIRST

      please don”t insult ole Grizzly

      • Pat Prybil

        You’re right. Sorry, I’m bad.

  • Marmaru

    He’s a comedian, at least that is the title of the piece. Apparently he was well regarded as a talk show host. I didn’t care for him.
    I agree that the discussion on shows should be about what can be done and what is available. Alas, that is not to be.
    These people seem to think that kodachrome is “the way it is”. With this sort of limit to one’s vision, why even bother with them. What they learned about government and politics was not real when they were in school, it has never been real, it will not be real. Kodachrome (“the crap I learned in high school”) seems to be the pervasive desire (it appears many realize that this is not true but can’t or won’t reach beyond. Step two or three in the denial scale) so until a greater acceptance of We The People to their inherent power to do more than whine or act surprised is accepted. Not much can change for the better.

  • Paul Lassiter

    There lies the problem. People that have a stage, like to use it to push there opinions down others throats.

  • Chris

    Trumps President and you’re unemployed, you were always second rate to Leno he was always an industry leader. Oh, nice beard if you want to look stupid

  • 1josephg1

    hey letterman! There is no fool like an old fool. You are both.

  • grinnie

    Hey Letterman, your name is waaay ahead of his!!

  • William Konrad

    It’s Letterman that needs to be in a home, along with his dumb beard.

  • Leslie Edgar Herrin

    His comments are just as tasteless as his TV show

  • Kurt Kruse

    Really a bit of a shame here, we have Letterman,a fellow of questionable moral fiber you know one of those who feel it’s OK to cheat on your wife,and the come clean about your cheating only because your to cheap to pay of those who would have you answer for your hubris.Coupled with dumb Al Franken a failed comic and currently a failed Senator from Minnesota. These two self indulgent misfits would now like us to believe
    that, somehow their verbiage stems from a place of wisdom and strong personal moral guidance? It does not, and if either of these two jackass’s need additional TV exposure? Perhaps good ol Dave can talk with his former employer, and the dumb ass Franken might find a spot a SNL as an host? The up side of uncle Dave’s action will serve to teach his son not to be anything like his Daddy.

  • phil62

    Letterman, go back to bed; you need all the rest you can get. As far as Franken; he is nothing more than just another faggot running his sodomy laced mouth.

  • Pandabear

    Stinking Traitors like Letterman abound and are in our mist everywhere only to make money lots of money! So we see their greedy disease coming in front of all places on TV controlled by the media… never in the history of America has the wackos gained so much ground! We need to be strong against the evil/wackos they will truly destroy America. We need to support President Trump and fight against the crazies!
