SiriusXM radio shock jock Howard Stern claims if he goes up against Trump in the 2024 presidential election he’ll “beat his a**.”
On his Tuesday morning show, Stern noted that if his comments about Green Bay Packers’ quarterback Aaron Rodgers’ vaccination scandal the day prior were “big news” to the American public, he has enough popularity to run for the nation’s highest office.
Stern called Rodgers a “scumbag” for misleading the press about his inoculation status by saying he was “immunized” against the virus and called for his termination from the NFL.
“If there was decency in this world, I would throw this guy out of the football league so fast, what he did to his fellow teammates,” Stern remarked.
Stern turned his attention towards a future political run the next day. “I think I’m going to run for president,” he told co-host Robin Quivers, who added: “If Trump decides to run again, you have to run against him.”
“I know, I’ll beat his a**,” Stern remarked about his former friend, who was a frequent recurring guest on the show prior to entering politics. “That’s what’s going to have to happen, we can’t leave it to the Democrats,” Quivers acknowledged.
The radio host explained that he wasn’t just riffing and has put some serious consideration into running. He noted that prior to the show, he discussed the possibility of serving his “civic duty” with his wife in the event that Trump decides to run in 2024.
“I would just sit there at debate and play that f**king clip of him trying to fix the election, over and over again. There’s no way I’d lose,” he said of Trump’s call to Georgia secretary of state Brad Raffensperger, where he asserted that there was election fraud in the state after Biden won.
Stern has previously run for office in New York’s 1994 gubernatorial election as a liberatarian, but dropped out so he did not have to disclose his finances to the public.
