David Letterman Implores Public To “Figure Out A Way” To Oust Donald Trump
DAVID LETTERMAN ON DONALD TRUMP
Instead, he’d like to see people doing something to get the man out of office. In a new interview, Letterman said people should “stop whining” about Trump “and figure out a way” to get remove him from the White House.
“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,” he explained. “I just think we ought to direct our resources and our energies to doing something about it.”
He continued, “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.”
Letterman and Senator Al Franken have teamed up with Funny or Die to create a digital series called Boiling the Frog with Senator Al Franken. They speak about all things serious and funny in six 5-minute short videos that are posted to Funnyordie. “He give me hope,” Letterman said of Franken. “He gives me faith.”
