David Letterman thought it was funny to joke about Lohan's substance abuse problems in this way? Wow. I've never seen this. It isn't horrifying to watch now. This was always horrifying. And this clown thinking it's fine to put her down this way. She's a human being. https://t.co/WOhKZDcdIE— boodell (@boodell) February 14, 2021
