Stern attacked Bachmann for her anti-gay marriage stance on his SiriusXM radio show earlier this month and even branded the Congresswoman and presidential candidate Rick Santorum the “worst two people on the planet”.
Bachmann fired back in an email sent to her supporters over the weekend, where she accused Stern of “corrupting America’s youth on public airwaves”.
She wrote: “These are serious times, and our nation faces serious issues. The direction that America is headed requires serious discussion by serious people, and Howard Stern is not a serious person.
“We cannot allow attacks from him or anybody else to distract us from a laser focus on what is truly important: holding President Obama and his Democratic allies accountable for their mortgaging of our future.”
Stern has promised a fiery response to Bachmann’s letter when he returns to his SiriusXM radio show later this month.
“Just read Michelle bachman’s comments. Can’t wait to get back on the air. Spoke with the lord a few minutes ago and he is on my side,” the radio host jokingly tweeted on Saturday (February 11).
He added: “If thinking that gay people have a right to happiness is corrupting America then I will continue corrupting them. Time to shun this woman.”
