(CBS) – Gun violence, Syria and an impression of Bill Clinton highlighted a nearly 15-minute long appearance by Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel Monday on the Late Show with David Letterman on CBS.
The mayor also talked about running for a second term, and offered insight into the decision making currently underway at the White House surrounding the crisis in Syria.
“What I hear about Chicago now is don’t go to Chicago, the violence is unbelievable,” Letterman said to Emanuel. “Now, tell us why people say that.”
“Well, first of all they’re watching CBS and you late at night,” responded Emanuel about the level of crime. “Actually it’s on its way down. We’re down 24-percent on shootings.”
