Accused White House party crashers Tareq and Michaele Salahi crashed another venue – David Letterman’s monologue – when they made a surprise appearance on the LATE SHOW with DAVID LETTERMAN, Tuesday, May 25 (11:35 PM-12:37 AM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.
Letterman was in the middle of telling jokes during his monologue when the smiling Salahis walked out and posed alongside Letterman briefly for “photographers” on the stage of the Ed Sullivan Theater, and exited the stage while the audience wildly applauded. “See, it’s interesting to me,” Letterman joked, “for all practical purposes, they’re trespassing. But, the crowd goes wild!”
The Salahis gained notoriety when they were accused of crashing the White House State Dinner honoring the Prime Minister of India back in November, even getting to meet President Obama and Vice President Biden. The couple recently made news again when they were stopped by Secret Service the night of May 19 near the White House, the same night as the State Dinner being held there for Mexican President Felipe Calderon. But the Salahis say that it was a total coincidence that were in the area and that they were on their way to a dinner party at a nearby restaurant with friends.
Also featured on Tuesday’s LATE SHOW are actress Sarah Jessica Parker, star of the new film “Sex and the City 2”; the “Top Ten Questions to Ask Yourself Before Joining the Military,” presented by members of United States Navy, Marine Corps and Coast Guard from the deck of the U.S.S. Intrepid in New York City; and a performance by musical guests The Black Keys.
The LATE SHOW with DAVID LETTERMAN is a production of Worldwide Pants Incorporated. Barbara Gaines, Matt Roberts, Jude Brennan, Maria Pope, Eric Stangel, Justin Stangel and Rob Burnett are the executive producers.
