Earlier this week Howard Stern commented on Trump’s proposed border wall, saying it won’t solve any of America’s real immigration problems. Howard Stern is a self-proclaimed Libertarian who holds both Liberal and Conservative political ideas. He referred to wall supporters as “morons” who can get behind President Trump’s simple idea to the complex issue of illegals and drugs pouring over the border.
“You gotta know Donald a bit to understand what’s going on here. The wall’s a simplistic answer to our problems with immigration. It’s something that, you know, morons can get behind because they’re like, ‘Oh, yeah, if you build a wall no one can get over it.’ But it’s not that simple.”
Stern said Trump’s demand of $5.7 billion in funding for the wall, a wall he originally said Mexico would pay for, wouldn’t even cover the cost of the proposed wall. “You’re talking about building a massive wall across this country on the southern border,” Stern continued. “It’s a tremendous amount of property and a tremendous amount of area to cover. You’re not going to get a whole wall for $5 billion. If you really want a wall, it’s probably going to cost you some trillions of dollars.”
Stern admitted that he’s “all about keeping fucking illegal aliens out because it’s fucking, not fair, it’s not fair to people who apply legally.” Stern also talked about how drugs are coming “into our ports” versus just from over the southern border, and he pointed out that Trump’s shutdown over not getting his wall is making security in the country even weaker.
