Howard Stern has made a career saying outrageous things. This his thing, pardon the redundancy, so maybe it’s no surprise that he’s chosen perhaps the world’s largest target as of late.
You see, Stern stays employed by enraging the masses, one way or another. Those who agree with him will defend and promote his salacious soundbites against the glut of folks who wholeheartedly disagree with him. In either case, the argument puts eyeballs onto his content, and that’s literally all that matters to advertisers. If you want to be successful, all you have to do is be seen; how you choose to achieve that is on you.
So Stern is attacking President Trump, because there’s no easier ways to catch some attention.
In his latest rant, the longtime radio host is insinuating that the President “hates” his own followers, and the it would be patriotic if Trump simply resigned.
“One thing Donald loves is celebrities, he loves the famous.
“He loves it. He loves to be in the mix.”
His comments come despite Trump being a one-time frequent guest on his show.
Trump even attended the 2008 wedding of Stern and model Beth Ostrosky.
Then Stern got personal.
Laying into Trump voters, Stern said: “The oddity in all of this is the people Trump despises most, love him the most.
“The people who are voting for Trump for the most part … he wouldn’t even let them in a f***ing hotel.
“He’d be disgusted by them. Go to Mar-a-Lago, see if there’s any people who look like you. I’m talking to you in the audience.”
But, for his final trick, Stern took the rhetoric up a few notches.
“I do think it would be extremely patriotic of Donald to say ‘I’m in over my head and I don’t want to be president anymore.’
“It’d be so patriotic that I’d hug him and then I’d go back to Mar-a-Lago and have a meal with him and feel good about him because it would be such an easy thing to do.”
I wouldn’t hold your breath, Howie.
