Howard Stern’s name was brought up during the first presidential debate between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. There was a question of whether or not Trump had supported the Iraq war before it began.
“When I did an interview with Howard Stern, very lightly, the first time anyone’s asked me that, I said, very lightly, ‘I don’t know, maybe, who knows?’ essentially,” Trump said during the presidential debate.
Howard Stern responded to Trump’s comments on his Sirius radio show. “Trump was on our show years ago and said yeah, you know, he was kind of for the Iraq war, us going into Iraq.”
“He was saying he really wasn’t for it, and so they were forced to mention my name,” Stern continued.
Lester Holt the moderator of the debate stated that the record shows Mr.Trump was for the war. The clip above gives you a better understanding of Donald Trump’s position from 2002-2004. Trump was never a politician and obviously showed more interested in the economy than foreign wars.
“I think the Iraqi situation is a problem, and the economy is a much bigger problem.” – Donald Trump, 2003, before the invasion of Iraq.
“I have such respect for women. My mother was one of the greatest people I ever knew,” Trump said during an appearance on “The Dr. Oz Show.”
Trump wonders if the “hundreds of millions of dollars spent on advertising” by Hillary Clinton and her supports has something to do with the negative image that has been constructed around him.
When asked if he regretted past comments that have been used against him on the campaign trail, Trump said he made those remarks before he realized he would run for president.
“Had I known I was going to be a politician, Howard Stern is a friend of mine, I wouldn’t have done his show.”
“Now, if I ever thought I was running for president I wouldn’t have done the show. We were all having fun together” said Trump.
Trump’s daughter, Ivanka, also wanted to step in and defend her father from the false narrative.
“My father speaks his mind — whether it’s a man or a woman, if you attack him, he will attack you back,” she said.
“In a certain way, it would be strange if he handled women and men differently. You can be a little rough with people once in a while, but almost always it’s them coming at your first.”
Dr. Oz also did a review of Donald Trump’s medical records.
Today Show host Willie Geist asked Dr. Oz if he felt that Donald Trump is healthy enough to be president. Oz responded with “the records that I got without question indicate that he is healthy enough to be president.”
SiriusXM announced Tuesday that “The Glenn Beck Program” will be suspended from the Patriot Channel “for the coming week,” and that the company is “evaluating its place in our lineup going forward.”
“SiriusXM encourages a diversity of discourse and opinion on our talk programs,” the company said in a statement.
“However, comments recently made by a guest on the independently produced Glenn Beck Program, in our judgment, may be reasonably construed by some to have been advocating harm against an individual currently running for office, which we cannot and will not condone.”
Discussing a potential Donald Trump presidency, Brad Thor, a guest on Becks show suggested that impeachment would likely be off the table.
“If Congress won’t remove him from office, what patriot will step up and do that if, if, he oversteps his mandate as president, his constitutional-granted authority, I should say, as president,” Thor said. “If he oversteps that, how do we get him out of office? And I don’t think there is a legal means available. I think it will be a terrible, terrible position the American people will be in to get Trump out of office because you won’t be able to do it through Congress.”
To a lot of people, it sounded like Thor was advocating assassination.
Donald Trump spends very little time defining his supporters, but at a recent Trump rally, several supporters wanted to explain why they support his candidacy.
“The people that mind their own business, don’t depend on anyone else,” said Patty Hughes of Indianola, Iowa, when asked to describe silent majority. “They don’t expect anything from anybody, and they’re kind of quiet. They don’t go around bragging. They’re not activists.”
Her husband, Larry, said, “They expect a dollar work for a dollar pay. They don’t want anything free, but they don’t want stuff taken away from them either. And that’s happening to us out here in the cheap seats.”
The silent majority that supports Trump is defined by restoration rather than revolution. His whole campaign is centered around “Making America Great Again.” A restoration of limited government, moral order, non-interventionism, fiscal conservatism and the disapproval of things like aboriton or incompetent leadership.
The media plays the race card on Donald Trump.
CNN’s objective is not to get Mr. Trump to disavow Dr. David Duke since he has already done so several times.
It is to make Trump prostrate himself before the gods of political correctness and beg for mercy. More importantly, the objective is to morally shame voters into not voting for the candidate they actually support.
Of course, the corporate shills want to paint the silent majority as a disgruntled white male uprising. Trump supporters decided to call into NPR explaining why they don’t believe the term “silent majority” has a racial connotation.
“I don’t think that’s true at all now,” said George Davey of West Des Moines. “You can look at Trump, and the people he hires. I’m sure he has a lot of people of various ethnic backgrounds in his companies.”
“The reason why we’re silent is because we’re not allowed to talk,” he said. “My favorite thing about Trump is that he wants to get rid of political correctness.”
“The silent majority is always going to be a state of mind,” he said. “It’s a feeling. It’s a feeling of dispossession and that feeling of dispossession can come about most dramatically in times when things seem to be changing. When all that’s solid melts into air.”
Presidential candidate Donald Trump responded to The New York Times who implied that he does not have great relationship with radio host, Howard Stern.
In a Sunday opinion column, The Times’ Frank Bruni wrote about how much Trump’s brand is tied to the concept of winning.
Bruni also reflected on what it would do to Trump if he lost Iowa, the first state to weigh in on the Republican presidential primary.
The columnist noted that Trump frequently calls people “losers.” Bruni cited singer Cher, Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban, commentator Ana Navarro, HBO host Bill Maher, GOP consultant Karl Rove, and Howard Stern.
But Trump insisted he would never call Stern a loser. The Republican front-runner lashed out at Bruni for the “disgusting,” supposedly fabricated notion that he would insult Stern, whom he called his friend. Trump also criticized the “failing” Times for allowing the claim to be printed.
Trump responded on twitter with:
Dope Frank Bruni said I called many people, including Karl Rove, losers-true! I never called my friend Howard Stern a loser- he’s a winner!
Really disgusting that the failing New York Times allows dishonest writers to totally fabricate stories.
t turned out that The Times was actually was referencing Howard K. Stern, the former boyfriend of the late model Anna Nicole Smith, without making it clear which Stern had been insulted.
The writer of the article, Frank Bruni, apologized to both Donald Trump and Howard Stern for the confusion.
Sarah Palin, the former governor of Alaska and 2008 vice-presidential nominee who became a Tea Party sensation and a favorite of grass-roots conservatives, endorsed Donald Trump 2 weeks before the Iowa caucuses.
“Are you ready to make America great again?” Ms. Palin said with Mr. Trump by her side at a rally at Iowa State University. “Are you ready to stump for Trump? I’m here to support the next president of the United States – Donald Trump.”
Her support is the highest-profile backing for a Republican contender so far.
“I am greatly honored to receive Sarah’s endorsement,” Donald Trump said in a statement trumpeting Mrs. Palin’s decision. “She is a friend and a high-quality person whom I have great respect for. I am proud to have her support.”
Sarah Palin endorsed Ted Cruz during his Senate race in Texas.
“I love Sarah Palin. Without her support, I wouldn’t be in the Senate. Regardless of what she does in 2016, I will always be a big fan,” Cruz said.
“Whats extortionary about Ted Cruz is that he just fulfilling campaign promises.” – Sarah Palin
During an interview with the Washington Post, Donald Trump said primary voters should consider where Ted Cruz was born before voting for him. Ted Cruz does not hide the fact that he was born in Alberta, Canada.
“Republicans are going to have to ask themselves the question: ‘Do we want a candidate who could be tied up in court for two years?’ That’d be a big problem.” Trump, discussing Ted Cruz eligibility to run for POTUS.
As you may know, under the Natural-born-citizen clause, The United States Constitution requires the president be a natural-born citizen.
“It’d be a very precarious one for Republicans because he’d be running and the courts may take a long time to make a decision. You don’t want to be running and have that kind of thing over your head.” Trump added.
Ted Cruz was automatically granted American citizenship at birth since his mother is an American citizen. In an interview with CNN, Cruz responded to Donald Trumps question about his eligibility.
“The legal issue is straightforward, the son of a US citizen born abroad is a natural-born citizen.” Cruz answered.
Some background information on the topic. The US Constitution does not define what natural-born citizen precisely means. People have their own opinions but constitutional and legal scholars say the term comprises:
All people born subject to the jurisdiction of the United States, including, generally, those born in the United States, those born to U.S. citizen parents in foreign countries, and those born in other situations meeting the legal requirements for U.S. citizenship “at birth”.
Donald Tump was interviewed on the Stern Show in August 2015 where Howard said “you could actually be president, this is looking like a reality.”
By now, the start of 2016, Donald Trump was supposed to have been a throwaway candidate alongside the likes of Howard Dean and Jesse Ventura.
Donald Trump is not going away anytime soon. The American people feel diminished in many ways. Trump’s slogan, “Make America Great Again,” is resonating with voters. Many feel that the American Dream has faded away and is out of reach for the Average Joe.
People want real tough talk, not canned soundbites from the Grand Old Party. In many ways, Trump has hijacked the GOP, but this is a welcomed change of course.
The politics of a country need to change with its society. The fabric of America has changed considerably since the 1960’s. Voters want authenticity when choosing a leader. They want someone who is going to walk the walk and to get things done and as of January 2016, Donald Trump seems to be the one.
Howard Stern went way out on a limb last week and predicted that Donald Trump will win the GOP nomination for president in 2016.
“I had some friends over for dinner and we were of course talking about Trump,” Stern said on his SiriusXM show. “People are saying, we don’t think Trump’s going to be the nominee. I said, I’ll tell you what: I think he is.”
“I’ll tell you why I think he’s going to be the nominee: he’s proven that no matter what he says, people dig him,” the host added later. “And I also think that a lot of people are of the mind that — they hate illegal immigrants, but they just feel funny saying it, whether it’s rational or not. Is the illegal immigrant draining your economy? Possibly. Is he taking your job? Possibly.”
“But I think more or less, people are super tired of politicians, meaning that they like the idea of a successful businessman running the country who might actually be able to get shit done,” Stern continued, before comparing Trump to “b-list movie star” Ronald Reagan. “And so they are looking back toward those days and hey maybe that’s the answer. Forget all these politicians who are professionals, we want to try somebody who is used to a business kind of thing.”
