Though the shots have ceased in the great war between Jay Leno and David Letterman, one brave soldier continues on. That man is Howard Stern, who never has a remotely nice thing to say about Leno.
Stern is a fairly regular guest on “The Late Show with David Letterman,” though he refuses to visit Jay on “The Tonight Show.” It’s especially awkward since Howard is a judge on NBC’s “America’s Got Talent.”
Still, Howard has always stuck to his guns, never giving up the fight over Leno getting the “Tonight Show” instead of Letterman, even though the rest of the world moved on over two decades ago.
Even Jay and Dave seem to have put it all behind them, exchanging phone calls with one another. Of course, Howard hates hearing about that. “I never served in the military, but I feel like a Vietnam veteran, you know? I feel like I’m still in the jungles, fighting your war, and you’ve made up with Vietnam.” That’s a pretty crazy comparison, considering one was an actual war and the other was a TV show.
If the above video clip shows anything, it’s that Stern’s Jay Leno impersonation is terrible.
