Howard Stern recently had a caller ask him if he had any memories of Donald Trump being at his wedding. Stern spent less time reminiscing about his wedding and more time giving his thoughts on now President, Donald Trump.
“I personally wish that he had never run, I told him that, because I actually think this is something that is gonna be detrimental to his mental health too, because, he wants to be liked, he wants to be loved,” Stern said.
Howard went on to call his current relationship with Trump is “weird.”
“I use to hear from Donald all the time and now I don’t as much. Maybe he’s mad that I was a Hillary Clinton voter.”
“It’s a sad thing. I know Donald. I know him well and he would call me all the time. Maybe at some point, he was like, hey you’re not campaigning for me.”
Or maybe “Donald” is busy running the country. Stern also alluded to some kind of conspiracy that Donald Trump wasn’t actually looking to become The President of the United States. Instead, Trump ran as a publicity stunt in hopes of receiving a larger paycheck from NBC.
Howard Stern: I told you what I believe. Here’s what happened. So, when Donald’s first book came out it was called Art of the Deal. He wasn’t that famous. He had to sell books. He said I’m thinking about running for president and the book sold like crazy. And a couple years later, he put out the second book and it coincided with an election. And there was a rumor out, Trump’s going to run for president, which he started. The second book sold well.
And then his deal with NBC was coming up for renegotiation and I don’t think NBC was going to air [Celebeirty Apprentice]. So he said what the fuck I’ll throw my hat in. It was good television but this time he announced: I’m running. So what happened is he started winning primaries and getting big crowds.
Robin Quivers: I thought he was making ridiculous statements so people wouldn’t vote for him. But people voted for him because of those statements.
Howard Stern: Yeah, people fucked the whole thing up. He just wanted a couple of more bucks from NBC. He’s pissed he won.
Howard Stern and Donald Trump have been friends for a long time now. Trump was a regular guest on The Howard Stern Show, making numerous appearances over the years. It’s difficult to say how this will affect their relationship since both of them hold loyalty in high regard.
