Former Howard 101 host Bubba The Love Sponge is back on the air in Florida. The Bubba the Love Sponge show airs on AM 820 News and 98.3 FM Pinellas County.
Bubba was recently featured on CNN for a 2007 interview he did with Stormy Daniels where Stormy discusses her alleged relationship with Donald Trump.
Bubba the Love Sponge Clem, known as Todd Clem before he legally changed his name in 1999, played portions of the interview on his radio show Friday and Monday, in which Daniels was asked to write down the names of famous men she had slept with. Clem says the first name on that list was Donald Trump. Although neither Daniels nor the host says Trump’s name in the 2007 audio, she can be heard describing key details that match the description of her alleged affair with Trump.
Clem said on his nationally syndicated radio program that Daniels was talking about Trump, and later verified the same information to CNN. CNN independently corroborated the story with another person who was in Clem’s studio that day, who would speak only on the condition of anonymity. That person also said Donald Trump’s name was the first on Daniels’ list.
Clem told his listeners in January that he had removed the appearance from his archives, the website Bubba Army Radio, because he didn’t want any unwanted attention in advance of an upcoming federal court case with Nielsen over alleged ratings tampering by Clem.
“Be careful on this one. Do not say a word,” Clem can be heard saying, cautioning Daniels and his co-hosts to not speak the man’s name.
Daniels, when asked how long the affair took place, added that it lasted “less than a year.”
Later in the show, Clem plays short clips of Daniels responding to questions over the alleged affair. Daniels said the tryst took place in “Nevada, but not Vegas.” At the prodding of the radio hosts she says it was in Lake Tahoe, which is where Daniels first encountered Trump at a celebrity golf tournament in 2006.
She said she found it “horribly embarrassing” that this person was the best in bed of the three people on her list and added that the person contacted her “twice a month.”
She later added that there was no money exchanged.
“There was no exchange of money,” said Clifford. “I’m sure if he had felt the need to graciously help me I would have put it in my purse.”
Bubba the Love Sponge declined to be interviewed for the CNN story, citing a pending civil matter, but provided CNN with a statement:
“This interview happened in May 2007. I only asked the questions. Stormy answered them. I wish her and our President nothing but the very best. I don’t think it’s that big of a deal. We need to stop worrying about the past and focus on the future. President Trump is our President, regardless of who he slept with 12 plus years ago. The media and haters need to get over it,” said Bubba.
This would be the earliest known instance of Stormy publicly discussing the alleged affair.
