In A New Interview, David Letterman Has A Few, Choice Words For Trump

After a 33-year career on late-night television, 'Late Show' host David Letterman retired in 2015. The 70-year-old recently dished on a number of issues with a lengthy GQ interview and had some particularly choice words about President Donald Trump.

Letterman says he retired because he got sick of the coat and tie, and tired of shaving. The new Santa-Clause-worthy beard he's sporting is evidence of his sincerity. The interview, “Gods of Comedy David Letterman,” is slated for the June 2017 issue of GQ. A preview shows that Letterman had much to talk about his former regular guest, Donald Trump.

Before Trump set his sights on politics, the real estate mogul and reality star frequented the stage of the 'Late Show' with Letterman. GQ asks, "Donald Trump was a frequent guest on your show. Have you had reason to regret that?"

"No, no reason to regret it," Letterman responded. "I'm disappointed that this man is representing me and my country. It makes me sick. But we always looked forward to having him on. He was a great guest."

Letterman apparently just had Trump on for the opportunity to make fun of the celebrity personality. "He was just a big, wealthy dope who'd come on and we would make fun of his hair. I would refer to him as a slumlord. But now, this goon... I don't know. He's demonstrated himself to be a man without a core, a man without a soul. Is there a guy in there?"

"Do you have a theory about what might have changed," GQ asked Letterman.

"I don't know," the former talk show host responded. "That's why I would love to have 90 minutes with him in a TV studio, just to talk to the guy. I would just like to say, 'All right, Don: What the fuck happened?'"

Letterman also revealed in the interview that he believes Amy Schumer is a breakthrough in the same way comedian Richard Pryor was. “His frank candor regarding his sexual activity was, to me at least, pretty pioneering. You didn't see that stuff on The Tonight Show. I kind of see Amy Schumer as having done the same thing for women. Both of them seem to be the ones who were just, "I'm confident in this. This is who I am. And I can make it funny."
