David Letterman just couldn’t stop himself from poking fun at Donald Trump and his recent gaffes. The Late Show host even crawled out of retirement to make a surprise visit to Martin Short and Steve Martin’s A Very Stupid Conversation stage show to mock the self-proclaimed presidential candidate.
The veteran late night show host took center stage at the Majestic Theatre stage Friday in San Antonio to take more than a few verbal jabs at Donald Trump, who has been embroiled in some pretty nasty situations over this past few weeks. Trump has been a regular target for Letterman over the years. Letterman’s appearance on a show featuring Steve Martin and Martin Short was his first since he voluntarily stepped down from the anchor position in May of this year, reported Rolling Stone. He gleefully acknowledged the bemused confusion of the audience, saying,
“I know you’re saying to yourselves, ‘Why is he here?’ By the way, I am so happy to be out of the house.”
David Letterman then publicly stated that his retirement was rather ill-timed as he proceeded to pull out one of his signature Top 10 Lists,
“I retired and… I had no regrets. None. I was happy. I’ll make actual friends. I was complacent, I was satisfied, I was content. And then a couple of days ago, Donald Trump said he was running for president. I have made the biggest mistake of my life, ladies and gentlemen, I tell you.”
Some of the major highlights of the list included quips about Donald Trump’s hair, which the media mogul claims is real.
“Number 10: That thing on his head was the gopher in Caddyshack“
In fact, apart from bludgeoning Donald Trump about his comments which have been condemned by Mexico and quite a few illustrious personalities and large corporations as being racist, Letterman restricted himself to joking on, “that thing on his head.”

After he had exhausted the list, Letterman posed for a mandatory selfie with the hosts, but not before he took a swing at the advanced age of all three hosts.
“It looks like a Flomax commercial, doesn’t it?”
David Letterman has been sorely missed by his fans ever since his self-accepted retirement from late night shows where the iconic host has discussed myriad issues with a comical as well as satirical touch. Hence it was a huge surprise when Letterman showed up on stage, reported USA Today. He even sat down with the Martins for an impromptu chat session.
