Howard Stern is having none of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. Stern launched a verbal onslaught against Russia’s President Vladimir Putin on his radio show.
On his Sirius/XM satellite radio show, Stern condemned Republican party for supporting Putin amid Russia’s attack against Ukraine, and to name one, he criticized former US president Donald Trump. This comes in the wake of the news where Trump was quoted last week, calling Putin a “genius” for how he started the invasion.
In his radio show, Stern describes his hatred towards the communist regime and refers to China.
“I hate the Soviet Union. I hate the communist regime. I always hated communism because it always turns into an autocratic situation like in China where they cut off your freedoms.”
Stern also mentions how he wishes Putin was dead, just like the Austrian painter who rose to power as the leader of the Nazi Party in Germany.
“I used to love the Republicans. And their stance is firmly anti-communist — pro-capitalist, anti-communist and certainly a staunch defender of free people and free elections. I voted for many Republicans. I don’t see how I’ll ever get back to that. They’ve just totally disappointed me and their support of Vladimir Putin, the praise they heap on him. Trump’s praise of Vladimir Putin. This guy’s a f*cking animal. I wish he was dead like I wish Hitler was dead.”
Stern then called Putin a “scumbag” and accused him of enslaving an entire nation.
“I can’t imagine the horror of the life of the Ukrainian people. They’re living in a country – they decided to have free elections … and this scumbag who has more money than anybody, who has more power than anybody, who enslaves an entire country, who will kill you if you’re a journalist, will kill you if you speak out against him, who’s got everything a man could want if you’re truly a megalomaniac, and he didn’t have enough,” Stern, 68, said of Putin.
Stern believes Putin’s actions are a result of him not being loved as a child.
“He is a little boy who says, ‘Everything in this world is for me, and I’m going to gobble it all up for myself,’” Stern concluded. “That’s all that’s going on here. That’s what’s happening. We have a guy who feels like he’s never full. He wants more and more.”
Ever since the reports of the battle between the two countries hit the headlines, many celebrities have expressed their disapproval for it. Russia’s invasion of Ukraine started early February 24th and is still advancing.
