As per Page Six, Howard said, “I mean, it’s America, we don’t have a Queen.” He added, “I mean, I get it. The Queen was a nice lady, I guess. My whole life the Queen has been the same Queen and there’s a tradition there and she did her duty to her country, I get it, I get it, I get it but we gotta get back to Trump, where those papers are that they found at Mar-A-Lago.” The radio jockey was referring to the classified documents found at former President Donald Trump’s Florida resort home, Mar-A-Lago, in an August search. His co-host Quivers asked if he didn’t “like the distraction of the Queen,” Howard shot back, “no, it’s annoying!”

Howard said on the show, “I have some exciting news I’d like to share with you. Early this morning, I was texting back and forth with someone. This person texted me and said, ‘I want to congratulate you’ and ‘You have my vote. It was a very lovely conversation and I said, ‘How would you feel about being my vice president?’ And you know what he said? ‘Done.” Revealing that it’s Cooper, who is a nine-time Oscar-nominee, Howard declared, “This guy is going to bring in the female vote like you wouldn’t believe. My vice president… Bradley Cooper.”
