Former late night host David Letterman appeared on Today, Friday, to preview the new season of his Netflix series and to bash Donald Trump.

Twenty years ago, on December 19, 1998, the House of Representatives voted to impeach President Bill Clinton on two counts: perjury to a grand jury, and obstruction of justice.

Keep these quotes in mind if the new Democratic majority in the House moves to impeach President Trump.

In an hour long, mind-numbing interview, David Letterman interviews former President Obama for the first episode of his 6-episode Netflix original series, My Next Guest Needs no Introduction. The January 12 debut episode concludes with a heartfelt message from the 70-year-old Letterman to the 44th president: “You are the first president I truly and fully respect.” In the episode, titled “It’s a Whole New Ball Game Now,” Letterman discusses the “palpable sadness” he endured at the end of Obama’s presidency. Throughout the episode, Letterman makes various jokes acting as if Obama is still the president. At one point he mentions that Obama’s answer to a question “just makes me so happy you’re still president.” Later he fantasizes about Obama returning to the Oval Office after the interview. Obama cutely dashes Letterman’s hopes by explaining that if the Constitution didn’t prevent him from running again, his wife would.
