By CCN: In an upcoming interview on Sunday Today, former Late Show host David Letterman slammed Donald Trump. But he thinks the MAGA haters who spend all their time complaining about the president’s Twitter antics should “stop yacking.”
David Letterman: President Trump Doesn’t Represent Me
In a teaser clip of the interview, Letterman complained that he doesn’t feel like President Trump represents him in the White House.
“As an American I don’t like this man as a president of our country. I love being an American, but I don’t feel he represents me and I don’t like that. I mean, even with other presidents that I’ve disagreed with politically I’ve felt like, okay, I can live with their representation.”
Hold up. Does David Letterman really think Trump is worse than Presidents Obama, Bush, or Clinton? Other than crass and endlessly-entertaining tweets, the policies of these presidents’ administrations were substantively no different than Trump’s. They rounded up and deported immigrants, they abused executive power, they loaded up Wall Street’s coffers with Main Street’s money, and they ran up the national debt for decades.
Letterman also lambasted Trump as a “goon,” but – shockingly – he saved his parting shot in the teaser video was for MAGA haters:
“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 just stop yacking about what a goon he is.”
