David Letterman: ‘This Is Not The Indiana I Remember As A Kid’ (VIDEO)

David Letterman criticizes Indiana Gov. Mike Pence (R) on the March 31, 2015 episode of CBS' "Late Show with David Letterman."

Comedian and native Hoosier David Letterman during his show Tuesday night tore into Indiana Gov. Mike Pence (R) for signing the state’s divisive Religious Freedom Restoration Act into law.

“This is not the Indiana I remember as a kid,” Letterman said during a serious moment on CBS’s “Late Show with David Letterman.”

“I lived there for 27 years, and folks were folks, and that’s all there was to it,” he said. “We all breathed the same air, we were all carbon-based life forms. We didn’t care.”

“This guy throws a monkey wrench into the works,” Letterman continued. “Something’s gone haywire.”

“It may be legal, but it ain’t right,” he said.

Letterman then launched into a Top Ten list of “Guys Indiana Governor Mike Pence Looks Like.”

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
