David Letterman has called President Donald Trump a "stupid son of a b***h" and said he "would have gone to work on Trump" if he had interviewed him.

The retired late night TV icon discussed the playful moment when Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon tousled Mr Trump's hair during an appearance on his show during the presidential campaign. 

In an interview with Vulture, Letterman said Fallon got a "fantastic viral clip" out of the moment, but said he "would have gone to work on Trump."

He said: "I think I would be in the position to give him a bit of a scolding and he would have to sit there and take it." 

Donald Trump Lets Jimmy Fallon Mess Up His Hair

"Trumpy," his pet name for the president, "broke" his heart during his feud with Representative John Lewis, he said.

"In addition to every other thing that’s wrong with the Trump, he’s ignorant in a way that’s insulting to the office, insulting to America, insulting to human rights, insulting to civil rights, insulting to John Lewis. Trump saying that broke my heart.

"I thought, You stupid son of a b***h. You ought to have known better than that."

Mr Lewis received a skull fracture after marching across the Edmund Pettus Bridge in 1965.

Letterman added: "John Lewis goes down there and gets a goddamned skull fracture. I mean, Trumpy will never have to worry about a skull fracture because of the hair.

"How do you know if Donald Trump is lying? His lips are moving."

During the interview, he said senior Trumpe aide Kellyanne Conway was his "favourite for a long time" and described White House press secretary Sean Spicer as "a boob who just got out of a cab and now here he is."

When asked about Stephen Miller, he said: "Wow, that guy is creepy. He fell out of a truck."

He also mocked Steve Bannon, Mr Trump's chief strategist.

“And he [Mr Trump] hires the Hunchback of Notre Dame, Steve Bannon, to be his little buddy.

"Bannon looks like a guy who goes to lunch, gets drunk, and comes back to the office: ‘Steve, could you have just one drink?’ ‘F**k you.’ How is a white supremacist the chief adviser to our president?”

Letterman retired in 2015 after 33 years as a late night host.
