DonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t miss David LettermanÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Late Show tonight. The North Salem funnyman interviews Donald Trump (in a show that was taped earlier in the week). During the discussion, Trump says Barbara Walters used to be a good friend of his, but no longer because, he says, she lied about conversations the two had about OÃ¢â‚¬â„¢Donnell.
<blockquote><div>She was trying to protect Rosie. She just said things that weren’t so and therefore I sort of wrote her off my list. She’s off the list.</div></blockquote>
He says, however, he does sympathize with Walters, whoÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s being bullied by the Nyack comic.
<blockquote><div>Rosie is sort of taking over the show from Barbara. It was sad to watch what was happening. But Rosie, they say, almost beat her up in the green room, and Barbara went out and did things she shouldn’t do. I felt badly for Barbara. In a way, I feel that Barbara was just trying to keep the whole thing together. I don’t totally blame her.</div></blockquote>
And for folks who think some of the nasty names Trump spewed at OÃ¢â‚¬â„¢Donnell over the past few months may have gone too far, the Apprentice star doesnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t entirely disagree.
<blockquote><div>I called her names that I certainly shouldn’t have called her.</div></blockquote>
