David Letterman Comes Out of Retirement for a Donald Trump Top 10 List - Watch Now!

David Letterman made a special guest appearance to roast Donald Trump at Martin Short and Steve Martin‘s A Very Stupid Conversation stage show on Friday (July 10) in San Antonio, Tex.

The 68-year-old retired talk show host did one of his famous top 10 lists to slam Donald, who has been riddled with controversy in the recent past.

“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,” David told the crowd. “I have made the biggest mistake of my life, I tell you.”

Watch David Letterman's Final Opening Monologue Ever (Video)

David Letterman takes the stage for the last time ever for his opening monologue on The Late Show With David Letterman on Wednesday evening (May 20) in New York City.

The 68-year-old late-night host got a standing ovation as he entered the room.

After calming down the audience, he jumped right into the jokes.

“I’ll be honest with you…it’s beginning to look like I’m not going to get The Tonight Show,” Dave said. “I’ll tell you something else…I know people are well meaning, but I’m sick and tired of ‘What are you gonna do now that you’re retired?’ You want to know what I’m going to do now that I’m retired? By God, I hope to become the new face of Scientology.”

Another downside to retirement, Dave said, “When I screw up now, I have to go on somebody else’s show to apologize.”

Conan O'Brien Says David Letterman 'Completely Rescued' Him

Conan O’Brien had nothing but amazing things to say about David Letterman during his monologue on Conan on Wednesday evening (May 20) in Los Angeles.

The 52-year-old late-night host opened up about taking over NBC’s Late Night from Dave back in 1993.

“I got the sh-t kicked out of me,” Conan said. “Critics despised me, the ratings were bad, my skin broke out, and my network started to make it clear that I probably wouldn’t be around very long.”

He said Dave came on the show to help him out.

“It was like the Beatles asking Maury Povich if they could stop by and sing a few tunes,” Conan said. “At the time, I was convinced it was a prank…it couldn’t be real. But, on February 28, 1994, David Letterman walked onto my set and blew the doors off the place. It’s easily one of the happiest nights of my professional life.”

He added, “At one of the lowest points of my life, when I was a 30-year-old national punchline, Dave, for reasons I still don’t really understand…completely rescued me. I truly believe that simple act of kindness turned everything around and made all the difference.”
