David Letterman hosts his final broadcast of the Late Show with David Letterman, Wednesday May 20, 2015 on the CBS Television Network. After 33 years in late night television, 6,028 broadcasts, nearly 20,000 total guest appearances, 16 Emmy Awards and more than 4,600 career Top Ten Lists, David Letterman says goodbye to late night television audiences. The show was taped Wednesday at the Ed Sullivan Theater in New York.  

David Letterman made a one-off return to show business with a surprise Top 10 list about Donald Trump on Friday, July 10. He appeared at a Steve Martin and Martin Short performance in San Antonio, Texas, at the Majestic Theatre.

“I am so happy to be out of the house,” Letterman, sporting a beard, said before launching into his set, which can be seen in the video below.

“I was complacent, I was satisfied, I was content,” the retired Late Show host added. “And then a couple of days ago, Donald Trump said he was running for President. I have made the biggest mistake of my life.”

Some of Letterman’s jokes mocked Trump’s recent anti-Mexico comments: “He wants to build a wall. How about building a wall around that thing on his head?” and “Donald Trump has pissed off so many Mexicans he’s starring in a new movie called No Amigos.”
