NEW YORK David Letterman is reassuring Mitt Romney that he doesnt hate him and getting in a dig at Jay Leno in the process.
The Republican presidential candidate said in a private speech to donors made public this week that Letterman hates me because Ive been on Leno more than him.
Letterman said on the Late Show Wednesday that Romney and his wife are welcome on his CBS late-night show. Romney has been on three times but hasnt made any appearances since he became GOP nominee. Democratic President Barack Obama was on Letterman on Tuesday.
Letterman says he certainly doesnt hate Romney for going on Lenos NBC show. Says Letterman: I mean, why hate a guy whos suffered through that?
