Actor/comedian Robert Klein sat down with David Letterman on Tuesday evening and jubilantly celebrated the re-election of President Barack Obama with an ecstatic roar and then a flipping off of conservative commentator Ann Coulter and a rebuking of a “porcine” Karl Rove.
Asked for his thoughts and observations on the election, the veteran stand-up comedian feigned interest in post-election unity: “We’re all Americans. Let’s unite. Let’s be as one. It’s not a time to gloat,” he said.
But then he followed it up by tilting his head back, throwing his arms up in the air, shouting: “Yeah!”
Flipping his hand under his chin as a dismissive gesture, he said: “Ann Coulter: This one’s for you, baby!”
He continued on to mock Rove for his refusal to accept Fox News’ election night projection of an Obama victory: “And that rather porcine fellow, what’s his name? Karl Rove. Couldn’t quite let go. ‘Hey, come on now, the returns from the Virgin Islands aren’t in yet.’”
