Palin: Letterman’s Comments About Daughter ‘Sexually Perverted’ and ‘Disgusting’; Todd Says Jokes About Someone ‘Raping’ His Daughter are ‘Despicable’

Jun 11, 2009  •  Post A Comment

Alaska Governor—and former Republican VP candidate—Sarah Palin—said David Letterman’s remarks Tuesday night were “sexually perverted,” according to Fox News.

Commenting about Palin’s recent trip to New York City, Letterman said, "One awkward moment for Sarah Palin at the Yankee game: during the seventh inning, her daughter was knocked up by Alex Rodriguez."

While the comment was aimed at  Palin’s 18-year-old daughter Bristol, who became pregnant while attending high school, in fact Palin was in New York with her 14 year-old daught Willow.

Todd Palin said, in a statement, "Any ‘jokes’ about raping my 14-year-old are despicable."

Letterman also joked that Palin had the syle of a “slutty flight attendant.”

Wednesday night (June 10) Letterman devoted  almost 8-minutes of his show responding to the controversy. See that video on our home page–just scroll down and you’ll see the clip under Video Fix in our left-hand column.

  1. David Letterman is not a funny man, he is a disgusting excuse for a human being. What has he got against Sarah Palin and her family ? When you live in a glass house you should not throw stones. I used to watch his show. Not Anymore. His mother must be disgusted, how could she not be?? Leave those girls alone, Pick on somebody who can cold cock you?

  2. Is he just dying for attention? Jeez, I used to kind of like Letterman. Now I see he’s just another TV host a**hole. Shut up, David. Just shut up.

  3. Sarah is a joke anyway , she should in Alaska and take care or her grandchildren and her son or get pregnant again that would keep her busy !

  4. This is just the type of verbage Palin uses in her speeches. It’s always funny if there’s an element of truth to it. She’s making such a big deal out of it something tells me he hit a nerve.

  5. Letterman is not funny. And how does Arod feel about being refrred to as “knocking up” someone’s daughter at a ball game ?
    Too bad he doesn’t sue Letterman.
    Wait , maybe Barry bonds can “knockup” Biden’s daughter. ha ha ha

  6. Sarah Palin needs to realize that she put her family in the public spotlight, including her pregnant teenage unmarried daughter. She is now fair game. She cannot have it both ways. Not saying Letterman’s joke is appropriate, if Palin wants her family and life private, shut up, get out of politics, and like most of her kind, stay away.

  7. David Letterman’s “jokes” about the rape of a 14 year old girl should be classified as hate speech or prosecuted as child pornography. What if someone made obscene comments about your children on a nationally televised show? How funny would that be? What if someone made NAMBLA jokes about Letterman’s young son? Bloody hilarious, right? As for the excuse that he was making the joke about the 18 year old, it doesn’t wash, because she wasn’t even in NY.
    This man is disgusting, and by association, so are people who support him

  9. Are you serious? Any sane person on planet earth would be angry if an old guy (eligible for social security) made jokes about having sex with their teenage daughter … especially when it is satuatory rape!

  10. This is no joke, it is sexual harassment.
    Grounds for the axe in most workplaces.

  11. i guarentee if palin was VP, she’d have his disgusting perverted ass fired in 3 seconds. i dont care who he think he is or who he was meaning to talk about, you do not make those types of comments on national television about a minor or not. he should be arrested talking about rape. i bet he has child porn on his computer. not only did he talk about the palins in a bad way, but AROD! im obsessed with the yankees and anyone that makes fun of the teammates should be shot! arods already having a bad relationship, but if people believe this shit head’s crap, it’ll ruin his career! david letterman can burn in fire and rot in hell!! bastard.
