Video: Letterman Responds to Mitt Romney's Claim That Letterman Hates Him TheWrap

In the same secretly taped video where GOP presidential hopeful Mitt Romney says 47% of Americans are “dependent upon government,” the candidate offers a critique of TV talk shows, TheWrap.com reports.

As previously reported, Romney calls “The View” “high risk” because of its “sharp-tongued” (and mostly non-conservative) co-hosts. Perhaps in response to the leaked video, Romney this week made plans to appear on “The View” anyway, as we reported yesterday.

He also talked about “Saturday Night Live,” which he said “has the potential of looking slapstick, and not presidential.”

In another tidbit to surface from the video, “Romney said [David] Letterman ‘hates’ him for doing ‘The Tonight Show with Jay Leno’ more often than he's done Letterman's show,” TheWrap reports.

"I've been on Letterman a couple of times; I've been on Leno more than a couple of times. And now Letterman hates me because I've been on Leno more than him. They're very jealous of one another, as you know," Romney said, according to TheWrap.

Letterman responded to Romney’s comments on “Late Night.” Here’s the clip:
