David Letterman picked the worst time to retire.

With Donald Trump's presidential bid quickly becoming the gift that keeps on giving for late-night comedians, the former Late Show host made a special appearance over the weekend to deliver a special Trump-themed Top 10 list.

Letterman, whose last Late Show episode aired back in May, came out of retirement Friday night to appear as a surprise guest on Martin Short and Steve Martin's A Very Stupid Conversation comedy show in San Antonio, Texas. He told the audience that retiring just before Trump announced his presidential candidacy was "the biggest mistake of my life."
