Voice for Equality: David Letterman
August 20, 2009
David Letterman (born April 12, 1947) is an American television host and comedian. He is best known as the host of a late night television talk show, "Late Show with David Letterman", broadcast on CBS. He has been a fixture on late night television since the 1982 debut of "Late Night with David Letterman" on NBC, which went off the air when he moved to CBS in 1993. Only Johnny Carson, one of Letterman's idols, has had a longer late-night hosting career.
On the August 19, 2009 broadcast of his talk show, while interviewing Donald Trump about the upcoming Miss Universe telecast, Mr. Letterman took the opportunity to express his clear support for marriage equality while also poking a little fun at the marriages of straight couples. The audience's reaction was widespread applause - even The Donald nodded:
Freedom to Marry salutes David Letterman, who can make a point while making us laugh, as a Voice for Equality!
