De­spi­ca­ble Danny

The Washington Times Weekly - - Culture, Etc. -

“I don’t know if Danny DeVito was drunk when he ap­peared on ‘The View’ [. . .] but I do know he was de­spi­ca­ble.

“The rea­son he gave for his much-pub­li­cized rude and dis­taste­ful an­tics was that he had spent the night as part of Ge­orge Clooney’s posse. He claimed that the ‘last seven limon­cel­los’ he had drunk with the sex­i­est man in the world were fi­nally catch­ing up with him. [. . .]

“Now that ‘The View’ has Rosie O’Don­nell as head host, ev­ery Hol­ly­wood lib­eral who goes on the show feels com­fort­able bash­ing the pres­i­dent for a laugh, a round of ap­plause, and a guf­faw from Rosie. Danny was just try­ing to be the most out­ra­geous so far. [. . .] In his five min­utes, Danny man­aged to in­sult the pres­i­dent with a Three Stooges rou­tine [. . .] and crow, ‘What about that hat trick last week! [De­fense Sec­re­tary Don­ald H.] Rums­feld, the House, and the Se­nate!’ Rosie shouted ‘Ta-da!’ even be­fore Danny did.”
