Howard Stern is a classy guy.
Stern was discussing President Trump’s comments on ultraviolet light therapy and disinfectants on his radio show with co-host Robin Quivers on Monday.
Here’s what Stern had to say:
Boy, oh boy, I got to tell my buddy Donald Trump, Jesus Christ resign from the presidency. Do the world a favor. You don’t want to be president. Go work at Mar-a-Lago. Have a nice rest of your life. This guy is out of his f**king mind. I don’t know what Donald is doing. I mean, when he holds a press conference, it’s like you go oh f**k.
I don’t know what to say what’s going on with Donald. I mean, these statements are idiotic. Hey, I have this idea. Maybe since Clorox works on surfaces, couldn’t they just pour Clorox into your a**hole.
I would love it if Donald would get on TV and take an injection of Clorox and let’s see if his theory works. Let him, volunteer. Or hold a big rally, say f**k this coronavirus, with all of his followers, and let them hug each other and kiss each other and have a big, big rally.
“A big cocktail of disinfectant,” added Quivers.
Then it was back to the compassionate Stern:
Yeah, and all take disinfectant and all drop dead.
It’s an embarrassment. And then the bigger embarrassment is the insult to my intelligence were he goes ‘I was being sarcastic.’ There was no sarcasm. And if he was being sarcastic, that is even worse people are dying. This us no time for sarcasm.
I can’t say that I’ve ever actually listened to Stern’s radio show. The impression I’ve always had of him is that he’s a grown-up version of the teenager who sits in the cafeteria and provides a running commentary on every one who walks by. His friends think he’s hysterical and that’s what feeds him. He’s not too smart, he’s not an athlete, but he’s really cool because he says things that no one else would say. The more shocking, the better.
When those days ended, he found he could make a living off of the same shtick he’d perfected in high school days. He chose radio because he had the face for it. And today, he’s paid millions for doing the same thing. Instead of the cafeteria, Stern sits in his studio and rather than his fellow students, he now comments on people in the news. Other than that, nothing has changed. His listeners think he’s hysterical and that’s what feeds him. He’s still not too smart, he looks terrible, but he’s really cool because he says things that no one else would say. The more shocking, the better.
