David Letterman Responds To Sarah Palin Over Jokes
After Sarah Palin responded with an angry attack on David Letterman's jokes about her and her 18-year-old sexually active unwed daughter Bristol, Letterman responded to Palin's claims that he was promoting the rape of Palin's 14-year-old daughter Willow.
David Letterman responded to Sarah Palin on his show Wednesday night after the Alaska governor slammed the "Late Show" host for a series of jokes he made about her and her family Monday.
Palin accused Letterman of making "disgusting" and "sexually perverted" jokes about one of her daughters, including one about her daughter being impregnated by Alex Rodriguez at a Yankees game. She had also criticized Letterman for a joke about her looking like a "slutty flight attendant," which she deemed "pretty pathetic."
Despite maintaining his usual tone of playful sarcasm as he discussed his flap with Palin, Letterman did respond seriously to the charge that he had made a rape joke about a 14-year-old girl. Letterman insisted the jokes were intended to be about Bristol, who is 18-years-old.
Sarah Palin responded Thursday morning to Dave's invitation to appear on his show in a statement to Foxnews.com: ""The Palins have no intention of providing a rating's boost for David Letterman by appearing on his show," the statement read. "Plus, it would be wise to keep Willow away from David Letterman."
