David Letterman tells Obama about his Fogo Island vacation
It's a popular destination for celebrities
But the latest name drop is one worth noting.
David Letterman, legendary former late night TV host, has a new show on Netflix, called My Next Guest Needs No Introduction with David Letterman.
In the episode with former president Barack Obama, Letterman casually mentions visiting Fogo Island.
"We went to Japan, had not been to Japan before. Went to an island off Newfoundland, Fogo Island, had never heard of it before. Saw icebergs," Letterman told Obama.
It was a brief mention, but of course, it turned a few heads after the episode became available to stream on Jan. 12, with notable names like Mark Critch tweeting about it.
