The long and distinguished list of inebriated celebrities who have disgraced themselves on live television - Grace Jones, Oliver Reed and George Best being three notable examples - has just acquired a new entry: Danny DeVito.

The film star walked shakily onto the set of the daytime chat show The View yesterday, visibly under the influence despite the fact that it was only 11am. He put it down to an all-night bender with George Clooney, fuelled by copious amounts of an Italian lemon liqueur. "I knew it was the last seven limoncellos that was going to get me," he said.

As soon as DeVito sat down on set, his host, Rosie O'Donnell, sensed something was up. "Have you been to sleep yet?" she asked.

"I don't know," he replied.

Then he launched into a rant about George Bush, complaining he hadn't been invited to stay at the White House since he had taken the presidency. ABC bleeped out DeVito's description of Mr Bush, but the New York Post lip-read it as: "numb nuts".

The film star, who was publicising his new movie, Deck the Halls, went on to portray the president as a monkey, a dribbling oaf and as one of the Three Stooges, and baited him over the Democrats' recent electoral victory. "What about that hat trick last week! [The resignation of] Rumsfeld, the House and the Senate - ta-da! I took my clothes off."

DeVito rounded off his louche display with an account of his sexual antics while staying in the Lincoln bedroom in Bill Clinton's day. "We went in and we made it our business to really wreck the joint," he said, referring to his actress wife, Rhea Perlman. "I mean, every place in that bedroom was, er, utilised."

The figurehead of The View, Barbara Walters, gave no comment, but was said not to have been amused.

Way to go Danny!:beer:
