Sarah Palin vs.David Letterman — Letterman Palin Feuding Over “Sexually Perverted Joke”
Sarah Palin lambasted comedian David Letterman Wednesday for making “sexually perverted comments” about one of her teenage daughters.
On Monday, the star of CBS’ the Late Show With David Letterman joked of the former GOP VP candidate’s recent visit to New York City, “During the seventh inning, her daughter was knocked up by Alex Rodriguez.”
Madame Governor hit the roof.
“Laughter incited by sexually perverted comments made by a 62-year-old male celebrity aimed at a 14-year-old girl is … disgusting,” the Alaska governor said in a statement.
Dave responded to the feud brewing between the two on his show Wednesday night, remarking that hewas referring to 18-year-old Bristol Palin, who recently gave birth to a son out of wedlock despite her mother’s
high-profile abstinence advocacy.
“We were, as we often do, making jokes about people in the news,” Letterman explained.
“These are not jokes made about her 14-year-old daughter. I would never, never make jokes about raping or having sex of any description with a 14-year-old girl. Am I guilty of poor taste? Yes. Did I suggest that it was okay for her 14-year-old daughter to be having promiscuous sex? No,” he said.
