David Letterman slams Indiana governor on 'Late Show'

Posted on

CBS

David Letterman has waded into the controversy surrounding his home state of Indiana’s new Religious Freedom Restoration Act.

Addressing his CBS audience Tuesday night, Letterman took on Gov. Mike Pence, who signed the bill into law last week. Protestors say the bill is thinly disguised way of legalizing discrimination against gays and lesbians.

“This is not the Indiana I remember as a kid,” Letterman said. “I lived there for 27 years. And folks were folks and that’s all there was to it. We had things to worry about. We all breathed the same air … and now this guy …throws a monkey-wrench into the works … it doesn’t pass the sniff test. It may be legal, but it ain’t right.” 

Letterman than segued into a Top 10 list of people Pence looks like. They were all rather jerky characters—like “The guy at the bar who sends your girlfriend a drink.”
