Howard Stern says Trump hates his own supporters, won't let them enter his hotels as he's 'disgusted' by them
The radio host also said it would be "extremely patriotic" of the president to step down over his response to the coronavirus crisis
Howard Stern claims President Donald Trump "hates" his own supporters and that it would be "patriotic" for him to step down from his office. According to a report by the New York Daily News, the 66-year-old radio personality attacked Trump and his fans during his SiriusXM show on Tuesday.
“One thing Donald loves is celebrities, he loves the famous," Stern said on his shock-jock radio show. “He loves it. He loves to be in the mix.”
It is worth noting that Trump used to be a frequent guest on Stern's radio show. He even attended Stern's wedding to model Berth Ostrosky in 2008.
Nonetheless, the veteran radio host went on to slam Trump voters.
“The oddity in all of this is the people Trump despises most, love him the most," he said. “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.”
Stern's rant did not stop there.
“I don’t hate Donald. I hate you for voting for him, for not having intelligence," he said. “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," he added.
Stern has cranked up his criticism of the president of late. A couple of weeks ago, he drew backlash after suggesting that Trump and his supporters should all drink disinfectant and "drop dead."
Stern's comments on his show for Sirius XM led one listener to urge him to stop discussing politics. In his attack, Stern mocked the president's comments about disinfectant during a recent COVID-19 White House press briefing.
Trump had made the remark about disinfectants during a press conference on April 23, when he seemed to suggest that coronavirus could be cured by using UV light inside the body and by injecting disinfectants.
Reacting to this on his show, Stern said, "Boy, oh boy, I got to tell my buddy Donald Trump, Jesus Christ resign from the presidency. Do the world a favor. You don’t want to be president. Go work at Mar-a-Lago. Have a nice rest of your life. This guy is out of his f-cking mind. I don’t know what Donald is doing. I mean, when he holds a press conference, it’s like you go oh f-ck."
He went on to say that he doesn't know "whats going on with Donald".
"I don’t know what to say what’s going on with Donald. I mean, these statements are idiotic. Hey, I have this idea. Maybe since Clorox works on surfaces, couldn’t they just pour Clorox into your a**hole," he continued.
"I would love it if Donald would get on TV and take an injection of Clorox and let’s see if his theory works," he added. “Hold a big rally, say f**** this coronavirus, with all of his followers, and let them hug each other and kiss each other and have a big rally.”
Stern agreed with a suggestion by his sidekick, Robin Quivers, that the rally should include "a big cocktail of disinfectant."
"Yeah...And all take disinfectant and all drop dead," Stern said.
