David ‘Grinch’ Letterman wants less spent on kid’s toys: ‘People need food’

lettermanEach year, just before Christmas, CBS’s “Late Show with David Letterman” brings on an expert from the toy industry to show off the popular toys of the season.

But this year, host David “Grinch” Letterman deflected from the segment by fretting over the fact that we spend $20 billion a year on toys, according to Newsbusters.

Emulating the best of President Obama’s efforts to propagate in favor of wealth redistribution, Letterman ponders if “we should take” other peoples money and put it “elsewhere” — the destination to be determined by the moral busybodies on the left, of course.

Putting toy expert Shannon Eis in an extremely awkward position, he asked: “I wonder if we should take some of that money and put it elsewhere. I don’t want to be the Grinch here, but people in this country need food.”

Never mind that a record number 23 million households — one out of every five households — now receives food stamps, and the cost of food stamp fraud has more than doubled in just three years, according to CNS News.

So as to not totally sink the spot, Letterman tries to bring it back to Christmas: “So maybe we could take some of that $20 billion and feed some people, then it’s a win-win. So, for example, with every toy maybe you get a sandwich.”

One almost expected to hear Letterman say next, “Blast this Christmas music. It’s joyful and triumphant.”
