Shock jock Howard Stern announced that “Silver Linings Playbook” star Bradley Cooper was running with him in the upcoming presidential election.
Stern, 68, announced that he planned to run for the nation’s highest office after the Supreme Court reversed 1973’s Roe v. Wade decision.
“I’m actually going to probably have to run for president now,” he said during his Monday SiriusXM show. He promised to make the nation “fair again” by reinstating federal abortions, packing the Supreme Court, and abolishing the Electoral College.
“I am going to do the very simple thing that’ll set the country straight: one vote, one person. No more of this Electoral College. I’m getting rid of it,” Stern detailed. “The problem with most presidents is they have too big of an agenda. The only agenda I would have is to make the country fair again.”
“The other thing is, if I do run for president — and I’m not f***ing around, I’m really thinking about it — because the only other thing I’m going to do is appoint five more Supreme Court justices,” he explained.
Stern has already figured out who his vice president would be… Academy Award nominee Bradley Cooper. During his Wednesday show he announced that Cooper called to congratulate him on running and ended up joining the ticket.
“He said I want to congratulate you and you have my vote and we had a very lovely conversation and I said, “How would you feel about being the Vice President?” And you know what he said? ‘Done. Done. Done.’ In other words, ‘I’m in.’ It’s exciting,” Stern gushed.
He claimed that the actor was worried about how having “another white male” as a running mate would affect Stern’s campaign success.
“He said, “I’m in, but you know, I’m another white male,” and I said, you know, I appreciate you saying that, but I believe you’ll be such an asset to the ticket, that I think people would understand,” the radio host stated.
“I gave it almost as much consideration as I did putting my hat in the ring — almost none,” he joked. “He was the first person I asked and he said yes so my search is over.”
