Martin Short Accidentally Insulted Obama Advisor David Axelrod


On Letterman last night, Martin Short talked about being invited to fancy political dinners in Washington and got a good laugh from joking that he “really shouldn’t be allowed out.” He then went on to make a pretty good case for why he should be kept indoors: at the Correspondents Dinner, he mistook Obama staffer David Axelrod for his friend, actor Richard Kind, and proceeded to walk up to him, hug him, and make fun of his weight before realizing his mistake. It’s nice to know that Short subconsciously channels Jiminy Glick from time to time.
