DeVito decks the halls

Hosts wind up contact-drunk from guest's breath

Danny DeVito was either drunk during his appearance on "The View" this morning or he was channeling fellow "Taxi" alum Christopher Lloyd's character "Jim Ignatowski." Either way, it makes for riveting television. The sound is cut from a portion of the segment, but it would seem (from his lips) that DeVito calls President Bush "numb nuts." Walters remains collected. It's about this point where we can smell stale booze oozing from our screen. And DeVito's synopsis of his latest film, "Deck the Halls," really made it seem like he thinks it's great especially when he almost vomits in his hand. Looks like someone couldn't keep up with Clooney. Oh, and did he say they were drinking lemonchellos? Thought so. Deck the halls is right, someone's lit.
