[Video] Letterman Attacks Pro Gun Senator, Calling Him “Stooge”
Last week, David Letterman decided to make Senator James Inhofe the target of his “Stooge of the night bit”.
Letterman said, “James Inhofe voted no on gun control. He said the families of the Newtown shootings had nothing to do with the debate on gun control, they only thought they did because they were told so by President Obama.”
Inhofe fired back during a recent interview on Aaron Klein’s WABC Radio show , “That’s kind of a badge of honor. Any time you get Rachel Maddow or Letterman or those people to call you names that means you are winning. In this country we do have groups that are very popular with the very liberal segment and they don’t like conservatives. They’ve never liked me. I have always been their target and it doesn’t bother me… because everybody knows what my position is. And we have so many mushy people in the United States Congress, both houses, that wont take these strong positions.”
Letterman becomes the latest in a string of public figures to take sides in the gun debate.
