Letterman VS. Trump Rivalry Flares Up With Racist Allegations
HUFFINGTONPOST.COM - Donald Trump has another celebrity rival. And it's not Seth Meyers.
Last Thursday night, "Late Show" host David Letterman, who has had Trump on his show a number of times over the years, dropped his harshest criticism on the potential Republican candidate for President, smacking him with charges of racism.
"But then this nonsense about 'Oh, how did he get into Harvard, how did he get into Columbia, I'd like to see his grades from Occidental, how was he able to write such a memoir?'" Letterman said, paraphrasing Trump's criticism of Obama's educational record, the strangely chosen issue that the real estate magnate moved to after Obama produced his long-form birth certificate. "That's taking on a whole different point of view as far as I'm concerned... Other people are not amused by this tactic. And by the way, nobody should be amused by that."
After guest Dr. Phil's lukewarm defense of Trump, Letterman continued his verbal assault on Trump's integrity.
"My point is it's all fun, it's all circus, it's all a rodeo, until it starts to smack of racism," he said. "And then it's no longer fun... I have heard enough really smart people to convince me that yes, that is very, very insulting... How can you say things like that if you're not a racist?" >>>CLICK HERE TO READ MORE
