Former late-night TV host David Letterman had some strong words for President Donald Trump in a recent GQ interview, and very few things he said of his former repeat guest on "The Late Show With David Letterman" were good.
Letterman admitted that he never regretted having Trump as a guest on his show, but revealed that if he could sit him down in a TV studio for 90 minutes now, he'd ask the president, "Don: What the f**k happened?"
"I'm disappointed that this man is representing me and my country," Letterman told the magazine. "It makes me sick. But we always looked forward to having him on [the show]. He was a great guest. 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."
Letterman revealed that his feelings about Trump then versus those now are in stark contrast.
"But now, this goon," Letterman trailed off. "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?"
Letterman in March spoke with New York Magazine, where he called the president "crazy," and noted that U.S. citizens "need to figure out ways to protect ourselves from him."
He also noted that if he "still had a show, people would have to come and take me off the stage. 'Dave, that’s enough about Trump. We’ve run out of tape.' It’s all I’d be talking about. I’d be exhausted.”
Letterman signed off the air in 2015 after 33 years as a television host.
