WASHINGTON -- During his monologue on The Late Show, David Letterman took a shot at Congress members in regards to the shutdown and the Washington Redskins concerning the debate over the team's name.

About 2 minutes and 19 seconds into his monologue, Letterman started talking about the federal government shutdown. He joked that due to the shutdown the leaves wouldn't be changing color. He made a few remarks about how lawmakers are still getting paid during the shutdown, and showed what Congress members were doing... by rolling a clip of several Congress members talking about ice cream.

"...are you like me? Are you beginning to miss the days when we were ruled by a mad English king?" Letterman asked the audience.

After a pause for reaction, Letterman went on to say, "They say now that it's the Republicans that have caused the shutdown... or as they're also known the Washington Whiteskins."
