'Enough with the Queen': Howard Stern blasts US media for covering monarch's death over Trump's Mar-a-Lago Papers
When Stern's co-host Quivers asked if he didn’t 'like the distraction of the Queen,' Howard shot back, 'no, it’s annoying!'
NEW YORK CITY, NEW YORK: Looks like Howard Stern is annoyed at the volume of coverage surrounding Queen Elizabeth II's death on Thursday, September 8. The outspoken radio personality blasted the US media on account of the screen time that has been given to the Queen.
On Monday, September 12, while speaking to his co-host Robin Quiverson in the segment of The Howard Stern Show, the 68 year old said, “it’s weird traditions and everything and I’m like, ‘Jesus, enough with the Queen!" as the topic of her death was brought up.
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!”
The royal family had announced on Twitter on September 8, “the Queen died peacefully at Balmoral this afternoon,” after the royal family had previously tweeted that she was placed under “medical supervision,” on September 7. King Charles III grieved the loss of his mother said in a statement, saying that this is that is a “moment of great sadness.” Following her death, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle accompanied Prince William and Kate Middleton, to inspect the floral tributes left by the royal well-wishers to honor Queen Elizabeth II at the gates of Windsor Castle.
Meanwhile, in June, Howard had announced his intentions of running for the presidential run in 2024 following the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v Wade. He made the announcement on June 27 on his SiriusXM radio show. And just two days later, declared that Grammy-winning actor Bradley Cooper will be his running mate.
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.”
