Donald J. Trump was a frequent guest of David Letterman’s on late-night TV. Above, a segment from 2012 in which Mr. Letterman mocked Mr. Trump for outsourcing his clothing line to Asia.

David Letterman, with the age of 69, has a somewhat feisty relationship with Donald Trump: Trump has been frequent guest on Letterman show and his sparring partner as well since the time of 1980s.

David Letterman said some pretty strong and hard words for Donald Trump: the next presidential candidate. These words include a statement that, “Because if you can do that in a national forum, that says to me that you are a damaged human being. If you can do that, and not apologize, you’re a person to be shunned.” Donald J. trump was a frequent and recurrent guest of David Letterman late night TV. A very famous segment that was done in 2012 included a conversation where David Letterman mocked Trump because he was outsourcing his clothing line to Asia.

In an interview that was done by The New York Times, Letterman was inquired and asked about his history with Trump, and also how he would have handled the given candidate if he still had his own show. During the time that Letterman had Trump as a guest on his show, during his 30+ years in late-night television, he was never the one to be afraid of ruffling Trump’s feathers.

Earlier this year Letterman’s jab was also used as an ammunition and leverage in a Hillary Clinton Campaign. That jab was a part of segment of year 2012, as discussed before, where Letterman had mocked at Trump, because of Trump’s outsourcing the manufacturing for his Macy’s clothing to Asia.

When Trump was considered just a “big blowhard billionaire”, then Letterman had found him to be harmless enough. However, now that Trump is actually being considered for our country’s highest office, Letterman is not so keen on Trump anymore. According to Letterman, someone who is unapologetically crass is certainly not so fit for the office and “should be shunned”. This was said based on the Trump’s many public gaffes, also including his disparaging of Mexican immigrants and also Trump’s tactless impression of a reporter who had congenital condition.

When Letterman was asked how he would have handled Trump if he was still on television today, Letterman said that, “If I had a show, I would have gone right after him. I would have said something like, ‘Hey, nice to see you. Now, let me ask you: what gives you the right to make fun of a human who is less fortunate, physically, than you are?’”

All of these statements and reviews suggest and indicate that if Letterman were to have his television show and on it Trump as a guest, then that would have made it a really interesting show. Certainly more interesting and exciting than watching “Laughing”, where Jimmy Fallon ruffles Trump’s hair and pretends that he is not even a reprehensible human being at all. All in all we all can say with somewhat surety that Letterman has no “love” for Damaged Trump at all.
