WATCH: Letterman Gets Send-Off From U.S. Presidents Current, Former and Deceased
As you may have heard, David Letterman brought an end to his brilliant, groundbreaking, highly influential talk show last night after some 33 years behind the desk. The highlights in Letterman’s final episode were numerous. There was a star-studded Top Ten List (featuring Tina Fey, Chris Rock, Jerry Seinfeld, Jim Carey, Steve Martin, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Alec Baldwin, Bill Murray and—only semi-oddly—Peyton Manning and Barbara Walters). There was a look back at the time Letterman worked a Taco-Bell drive-thru. And, to boot, a series of U.S. presidents, currently serving, living and dead, announcing that “Our long national nightmare is over"...because Letterman is finally retiring.
Check out the tribute, which compiles footage of Ford, Bush 41, Clinton, Bush Jr., and Obama (who just shrugs when Letterman asks if he’s kidding) sending the host on his way.
