David Letterman Pisses Off Sarah Palin

| Filed under: David LettermanSarah Palin

palinlettermanvs.jpg

Sarah Palin isn't a fan of David Letterman's humor, now is she?

To celebrate Palin's recent visit to New York, Letterman took the opportunity to take a few jabs at Sarah and her family on Tuesday night's Late Show!

During the funnyman's opening monologue, he poked fun at the former VP-nom's 14-year-old daughter, saying: "The toughest part of [Palin's] visit was keeping Eliot Spitzer away from her daughter."

Ha!

Both Sarah and her husband Todd have released statements shaming Letterman and his 'poor taste' in humor, of course.

From Papa Palin: "Any 'jokes' about raping my 14-year-old are despicable. Alaskans know it and I believe the rest of the world knows it, too."

And from Miz Palin herself? Get ready for a mouthful.

"Concerning Letterman's comments about my young daughter (and I doubt he'd ever dare make such comments about anyone else's daughter): Laughter incited by sexually-perverted comments made by a 62-year-old male celebrity aimed at a 14-year-old girl is not only disgusting, but it reminds us some Hollywood/NY entertainers have a long way to go in understanding what the rest of America understands – that acceptance of inappropriate sexual comments about an underage girl, who could be anyone's daughter, contributes to the atrociously high rate of sexual exploitation of minors by older men who use and abuse others."

Lighten up, guys!

    Alaska is the WORSE state in the nation as far is protecting women from sexual crimes. What does she say about that?



  2. 2

    she's a dumb bitch



  3. 3

    He could be charged for perversion in New York but he won't be because he pays a lot of taxes.



  4. 4

    Lol it wasn't about raping her daughter, it was implying her daughter looked like a prostitute~



  5. 5

    I didn't hear the joke. However, I do know that any joke about rape isn't funny. Perez, how could you take it so lightly? Rape, no matter what age, is wrong. Jokes about rape offends anyone who has been raped.

    Yes, who ever thought comedy could skirt the lines of indecency and inappropriateness. This woman needs to go far away.



  7. 7

    Lighten up? I never thought Letterman was funny! Wasn't Jamie Foxx roundly criticized for making Miley Cyrus remarks? Is it okay for the geriatric Letterman to do so??



  8. 8

    oh please! lighten up- it was just a joke

    HAHA
    fuck sarah palin.

    10

    she's right perez. as much as you hate her, it is inappropriate for letterman to be saying stuff like that so have some decency and show some compassion



  11. 11

    go cry about it. you shouldn't have paraded your whole family around if you didn't want them to be a target.



  12. 12

    Rock on Sarah. Men who go after little girls, even in jokes, are perverted twisted SOBs. Why is Letterman thinking ANYTHING about a 14 year old little girl, especially THAT. Sick old man.



  13. 13

    some people just can't take a joke. although her family is pretty much a joke…



  14. 14

    Very tacky. What if it were Melia or Sasha were the target of this "joke"? Shame on Letterman.



  15. 15

    the only one who mentions rape is Palin
    looks like their minds are in the gutter



  16. 16

    I don't understand where the subject of rape comes in at all. That wasn't an attack on her daughter, it was an attack on Spitzer!

    And comparing it with Jamie Foxx - that WAS an attack on a teenager. This wasn't.



  17. 17

    shame on u letterman



  18. 18

    WHEN ARE YOU GOING TO POST THOSE PICS OF TRANNY GAGA WITH NO MAKEUP?!?!?!
    +
    SHE IS UGLIER THAN I THOUGHT! =/
    +
    THE DAILY MAIL HAS THEM JUST IN CASE YOU DONT KNOW WHERE TO GET THEM!!!!!

  19. Gigi7 says – reply to this


    19

    He didn't say anything about raping her. Judging from the previous actions of the Palin family, there would be no need for rape. She'd say "Yes"



  20. 20

    Not a huge Palin fan, but making a sex joke at the expense of a 14 year old is not cool. What if Dave mocked a gay? You'd be outraged.

    You are getting to be much less entertaining, with your anti women, pro gay, pro Obamanation BS. Maybe you should try to be more relevant, Mario.



  21. 21

    Lol, seriously? What about laughter incited by an idiotic, right-wing, moronic governor on her last leg in politics stirring up drama as a feeble attempt to keep her career. I love it.

  22. slgee says – reply to this


    22

    Wow.
    Lighten up indeed!
    Letterman said nothing about rape… Mr. Sarah Palin needs to shut up.

  23. slgee says – reply to this


    23

    It wasn't even directed towards the Palins' daughter, it was poking fun at Spitzer.



  24. 24

    I don't think they need to lighten up. It was a very gross and unnecessary comment. I think you, perez, need to stop sucking up to every liberal media whore out there.



  25. 25

    You get your boner in a twist about Carrie and her beliefs.

    But tell someone to lighten up when Letterman makes jokes about a sicko touching a 14 year old.

    Get morals you fat pig.



  26. 26

    Why are the Palin's so quick to assume it's the 14 year old and not the older one, Bristol? Isn't she 19 or something? I think they are sick.



  27. 27

    Honestly, even I think Letterman went a bit too far with those comments. Besides, I don't know why he started running his mouth about politics all the time now - he doesn't just make jokes like he use to, now he is a flat out dick when he doesn't agree with someone's viewpoints. I mean he's always been "an asshole" (as Cher put it), but he didn't seem so hellbent on politics in the past.



  28. 28

    I don't believe Palin wrote that statement. She can't form intelligent sentences, only blasphemy and what the GOP (satanist group) programs into her.



  29. 29

    I like how rape isn't even IMPLIED here. By "keeping Eliot Spitzer away from her daughter" Dave could have meant a plethora of things, not necessarily rape. I do see how this comment is perverted, but for gods sake people. Besides that, everyone knows Sarah Palin is the biggest joke in our government. I can't wait until she runs in 2012, it's going to be HUMILIATING.

    By the way, Sweet_honeyx0x, you didn't hear the joke, but were you unable to read it in the above post? You seem to just assume from Palin's remark that the joke was about rape, when the above post displays perfectly well that it was not.



  30. 30

    NO ONE SHOULD MAKE COMMENTS LIKE THAT ABOUT SOMEONE UNDERAGE!! SO WRONG!!! SHE AS EVERY RIGHT TO DEFEND HER DAUGHTER!! LETTERMAN'S AN ASS!



  31. 31

    i'm sorry but why is she still being stalked by paps!! she lost the election!! she's suppose to be a nobody!! ugh she bores me. someone tell her to "put a cork in it" next time they interview that bad mother! :) i love mee



  32. 32

    Re: mrsdanielcraig
    Probably because it was her 14 year old daughter that accompanied her to New York.



  33. 33

    She needs to shut her fucking mouth! No one said anything about raping her daughter! Shouldn't she be killing a helpless animal somewhere?



  34. 34

    Uhm, it is true. That was completely distasteful.



  35. 35

    "alaskans know it" fucking idiots.

  36. Kdel says – reply to this


    36

    LIGHTEN UP MY ASS YOU DISGUSTING PIECE OF SHIT. YOU FUCKING LIBERALS ARE SO SCARED OF HER THAT YOU ATTACK HER AT EVERY TURN WHICH IS BAD ENOUGH BUT TO BRING HER FAMILY INTO THE ATTACKS IS WAY OVER THE LINE. DAVID LETTERMAN IS AN ASSHOLE AND HE HAS NO BUSINESS MAKING SICK JOKES ABOUT UNDERAGE CHILDREN. FUCK DAVID LETTERMAN AND FUCK YOU PEREZ!!!



  37. 37

    Re: that_will_do_PIG_rez – Ummm speak for yourself!! Who the hell are you to speak for everyone else? Letterman is hilarious and the majority of posters here OBVIOUSLY agree!



  38. 38

    Who said Rape?



  39. 39

    The joke was against Elliot Spitzer not the daughter, DUMB IGNORANTS.

    Re: shelbz115
    SO YOU WON'T BE OFFENDED IF I SAY SOME MEAN SHIT ABOUT THOSE OBAMA GIRLS RIGHT?



  41. 41

    If she cared so much about rape issues she wouldn't have allowed for Alaskan rape victims to PAY FOR THEIR OWN RAPE KIT.



  42. 42

    Lighten up?

    Will Gayrez be doing the same over Miss California?

    Letterman needs to stop exploiting minors, dirty old man.



  43. 43

    this is a great example of how people are so damn gullable and uninformed. if you just go on youtube, look up david letterman, sarah palin top ten, you would understand the joke never mentioned rape.

    The palin machine used the word so that idiots would be moved by such an adjective, perez re-said it because he is not real media just pop blog and a bunch of idiots just ate it up without even caring for the facts. I suggest before you start acting like ignorant zombies that just want sensationalism, please understand why you are oppose to not what you were fed.

    David letterman never said anything about Palin's daughters being raped. Come on!!!!



  44. 44

    Eliot Spitzer and 14 year old girls…. yeah that's not really funny.

  45. Glen says – reply to this


    45

    Well lets see -

    Bristol Palin is 18 not 14 - has already had a baby and got pregnant under her mom's nose WHILE SHE REALLY WAS UNDERAGE. If they were so concerned with rape, why did they not prosecute the legal consenting adult who got thier underaged daughter pregnant??



  46. 46

    Hell no! She turned the tables on that gap-toothed bastard. Would he EVER make that kind of joke about one of the Obama girls?

    Go Sarah.



  47. 47

    But Letterman is'nt that funny. I think he's booring.



  48. 48

    As much as I dislike her, she's completely right. Anyone who doesn't understand that, is a fool.



  49. 49

    LOLOLOLOL! Good for Letterman. I can see somebody being pissed if their daughter was a sweet, innocent little girl. But Palin's daughter is the epitamy of a white trash whore.



  50. 50

    I thought that liberals were loving and tolerant.



  51. 51

    Re: Glen – uh Glen…they were talking about her 14 year old daughter..Not Bristol…READ!!



  52. 52

    Sounds like he hit a raw nerve - face it all the ladies in her clan are sluts. Both her and her oldest got knocked up before marriage - but she is quick to preach to us. Her grandson is a bastard.



  53. 53

    Re: Glen
    READ the story before writing. He was talking about her 14 year old daughter who in attendance. Doof



  54. 54

    "Statutory Rape" is sex between an adult and a minor. The daughter she brought to the game was Willow who is 14-years-old. He said:

    One awkward moment for Sarah Palin at the Yankee game, during the seventh inning, her daughter was knocked up by Alex Rodriguez.



  55. 55

    Lighten Up? Ok I've never liked Sarah Palin much less for VP, but I think her comment was well said. How would you feel if someone made a joke at the expense of your child, let alone a sexual joke? David Letterman is an ass and his show sucks. I don't think it was funny and she is right- He was sexually exploiting a minor. Leave young children out of dirty jokes asshole.



  56. 56

    The phrase statutory rape is a term used in some legal jurisdictions to describe consensual sexual relations that occur when one participant is below the age required to legally consent to the behavior.[1] Although it usually refers to adults engaging in sex with minors under the age of consent,[1] the age at which individuals are considered competent to give consent to sexual conduct, it is a generic term, and very few jurisdictions use the actual term "statutory rape" in the language of statutes.[2] Different jurisdictions use many different statutory terms for the crime, such as "sexual assault," "rape of a child," "corruption of a minor," "carnal knowledge of a minor," "unlawful carnal knowledge", or simply "carnal knowledge." Statutory rape differs from forcible rape in that overt force or threat need not be present. The laws presume coercion, because a minor or mentally challenged adult is legally incapable of giving consent to the act.



  57. 57

    PS, I assume by rape she means statutory. It's just bringing light to the darker parts of a distasteful joke.



  58. 58

    Perez if this was your almighty Obama's children you would be blasting Lettermen right now.
    Any joke like this is inappropriate.
    I don't care if you don't like her politics, it was in bad taste.



  59. 59

    That's too far on Letterman's part. Joke on Palin all you want, she's a public figure and it comes with the territory, unfortunately, but her daughter should be off limits, especially in that context. If someone had said that about one of the Obama girls there would be people calling for that person's head, literally. The double standard has to go now or we are going to be in deeper shit then we already are.



  60. 60

    Re: AmbrosiaRose – Agreed!

    The majority of her own party wants her to disappear. That heffa is a sad, old joke.



  61. 61

    STFU up stupid, ignorant bitch. you thrust your family straight into the spotlight and used them for your campaign. now you're going to get pissy because comedians are making jokes?

    go stare at russia for while. maybe it will keep you from killing more defenseless animals because you and your husband think it's FUN.



  62. 62

    Re: Parchoparchis – You obvioulsy don't have any children. It doesn't matter who the joke was aimed at, it's still disrespectful because he personalized it. If he had said keep Spitzer away from young girls, it would still be wrong but it's worse because he actually stated who. You're a dumbass. I guess it would be ok for someone to make an implying joke about hurting one of your family members as long as it's not directed to them.



  63. 63

    Why did she think that he was talking about her fourteen year old daughter? Does that mean she's raised more than one teenage slut?



  64. 64

    Seriously…Letterman said daughter…did they disclaim their 18 year old Bristol that has a baby? They are trying to make something sick of a joke! DAVE NEVER SAID THEIR 14 YEAR OLD! They just cant handle a joke!



  65. 65

    she's 14 not 24 or 34. bad taste.



  66. 66

    Actually, this joke is about Eliot Spitzer, not her daughter. And if Palin and her husband weren't idiots, they'd realize that.

    Palin also doesn't understand how using high powered rifles from helicopters contributes to animal cruelty and gun violence. And that if her daughter did get raped, she wouldn't support her right to an abortion.

  67. Necee says – reply to this


    67

    Lighten up!?!? Are you F'n kidding me! Normally I am agree with you but I saw the joke and normally I role w/ the punches but that was tasteless and disgusting. Prez if you had a daughter you would not find it funny what so ever.
    I think it's funny how if someone speaks out against someone you like you rip them an new one (even if they are in the right) but when someone you like does something incorrect to someone you don't like it's okay. At times you act a a 15 yr old.



  68. 68

    sarah palin can suck a nut=)..



  69. 69

    It isn't funny. Making a joke about a perverted man going after your teenage daughter is disgustingly not funny. Perez has no class whatsoever.



  70. 70

    "Lighten up"?! Really? If it he called something "gay" as in "lame" you'd have your dick in a twist. But, I see you're keeping it real, P. Real one sided. Why don't you try some of that dual perspective you're always preaching about?



  71. 71

    Re: SlackDaddy – I didn't know a pregnancy automatically made someone a slut? *puzzled* It may make them stupid, but as far as we know, it was her first time. You have no place to call her a slut, rather "idiot" or "dumb ass" would be fitting…



  72. 72

    Maybe it was in poor taste but those watching Letterman forgot it as soon as it was said…Sarah "paling around with terrorists" Palin has brought more attention to it by running her mouth. Some of the comments she made about Obama were equally tasteless….what about that?



  73. 73

    SARAH PALIN IS A FILTHY, DUMBER THAN DIRT, NAZI BITCH AND IF SHE TOOK OFFENSE TO LETTERMAN'S INCREDIBLY FUNNY REMARKS….WELL…TOUGH SHIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



  74. 74

    So PEDO PEREZ you think what Letterman said was fine. Just goes to prove what people say about FAGS, they are PEDOs.



  75. 75

    YOU ARE A HYPOCRIT! IF ANYONE (OPPS I MEAN ANY CONSERVATIVE TALK SHOW HOST) HAD SAID THIS ABOUT CHELSEA CLINTON YOU WOULD HAVE BEEN CALLING FOR THEM TO BE STRUNG UP BY THEIR BALLS>
    BOTTOM LINE IS RIGHT IS RIGHT AND WRONG IS WRONG AND TALKING LIKE THAT ABOUT *ANY* 14 YEAR OLD IS DOWN RIGHT WRONG.



  76. 76

    what?? lettermans comment was kinda more against spitzer than the palins. sarah palin doesnt believe in womens rights anyway



  77. 77

    Re: Glen – You have no idea stupid, they have a 14 year old daughter too…not just Bristol. Get your facts straight moron



  78. 78

    perez if this was about anyone elses daughter you'd be furious too, you would say she needs to lighten up.



  79. 79

    If Perez was capable of reporting a COMPLETE story, you would know that the comment the Palins took the most umbrage with was Letterman's "joke" about Willow (he said Bristol but the situation to which he was referring was actually attended by Willow, who is 14) got knocked up by A-Rod. Which WOULD have been rape. And hence, the Palins are pissed. And I don't blame them. Letterman can make fun of Sarah all he wants, she's a public figure. But cracking jokes about a 14 year old getting basically sexually assaulted is uncalled for.
    AND…what happened to the "Chelsea Clinton" rule where public figures aren't allowed to say nasty things about the children of politicians? I guess that only applies to Democrats.



  80. 80

    she's completely right it was a very sexist remark



  81. 81

    Re: jarvisbearcub
    You and Perez are both idiots. You for thinking it's ok to joke about the 14 year old daughter of a politician, and Perez for not stating the truth, which is that the Palins were angry about Letterman saying Willow (who is 14) got knocked up by A-Rod at a sporting event. Which would involve sexual contact. Which is gross because she's a KID, and gross because it's a joke about sexual assault.



  82. 82

    Re: mcronisue
    He was making reference to a recent event where Willow (14) went somewhere with her mom. He said "Bristol" but was talking about Willow.

    I am a big Letterman fan, and didn't vote for Palin, and I think this was incredibly uncalled for.



  83. 83

    Letterman's "joke" about a fourteen year old being "knocked up" is beyond inappropriate. The remark was irresponsible. Anyone who thinks otherwise hasn't a clue about the vulnerability of adolescence. Do you know any 14 year old girls? Tell me how well they would handle a verbal attack like the one Letterman publicly spewed. It's actually rather pathetic to hear Letterman reach that low. Consequently those who find it funny are similarly clueless about the damage it causes to the attacked as well as teen age girls who hear people laughing at the degradation of a peer.



  84. 84

    Letterman is a God! Keep on going Dave!



  85. 85

    Umm, I agree with Sarah. That shit aint funny.



  86. 86

    lighten up????? Did you lighten up on Miss California? Go suck yourself



  87. 87

    the 14 year old will probably be preggo soon just like her big sister..maybe letterman is the father?



  88. 88

    I COMMEND LETTERMAN FOR HIS HILARIOUS JOKE. IT WAS ABSOLUTELY APPROPRIATE.



  89. 89

    hahahaha…PLEASE!!! these people act like their little wh*re of a daughter won't be knocked up and having a baby in 2 years…pssshhhh. STFU and get lost already, don't you morons have to keep an eye on Russia?



  90. 90

    Sarah Palin and her family have been celebrating Alaska by appearing in the lower states in Seward's (he bought Alaska for the U.S.) home town, not in her own state! She then made a speech for support of National Autism Convention. At that official speech, Willow, appeared on stage wearing Daisy Dukes and a skin tight tee shirt! She was paraded by her own mother, dressed like a harlot. That's what D.L. was referring to.



  91. 91

    don't tell her to lighten up. if that was said about anyone else, you'd see it as fucked up. but because it's sarah palin, you act like it's not a big deal. you're seriously the epitome of what is wrong with america. just because you have a moronic blog focusing on other people's lives, you have this platform to say idiotic things & think you're completely justified all the time. you're so predictable.



  92. 92

    Re: JAYQUE – #4 hahahah…I LOVE IT. I didn't see the bit, but that makes complete sense, LMFAO!!!



  93. 93

    Says the woman that makes rape victims pay for their own rape kits in Alaska. Fuck off.



  94. 94

    He joked about Willow being "knocked up" during the 7th inning by Arod. Funny? Disgusting! Kids should be OFF LIMITS! Put a gay child in the same scenario and think about how you'd react.



  95. 95

    I'll bet it wouldn't have been so funny if someone said something like this to a Democrat, you hypocrite.

  96. 16MPG says – reply to this


    96

    By my count, David Letterman's ranking on the food chain just dropped 653 notches. By virtue of his 'poor taste in humor', he is now cozily ranked between Joan Rivers and a bloody bowel movement.



  97. 97

    I'm as disgusted by Sarah Palin's political beliefs as the next person, especially as a lesbian, but she is 100% right about this issue. Ours is the only wealthy Western nation with a rape crisis this staggering, and jokes about it aren't funny. If he'd have made a joke about violence against gays Perez wouldn't take it as lightly. But I do love me some Perez!



  98. 98

    For the f*cktards who don't get it, joking about an adult man "knocking up" a 14 year old girl is implying statutory rape!! If the joke were made about Obama's daughters or anyone other child it would be equally f*cked up!! Oh but if this were a gay issue, the OUTRAGE that would spew!! Morons!



  99. 99

    Re: Kdel – LMAO!!! scared of her? I mean I know I for one am afraid of her level of IGNORANCE…but I don't the think the two are the same thing. I mostly just like to laugh at the ignorant sl*t.



  100. 100

    Re: mcronisue – Dave was specifically discussing Sarah Palin and daughter being at Sunday's Yankee game. She was there with her 14 YEAR OLD DAUGHTER. Sorry your too dumb to figure it out on your own.
