Howard Stern has always been one of the media’s most outspoken personalities. Politics are never off-limits for the legendary shock jock. In 1994, he even toyed with the idea of running for Governor of New York. Given recent events, his ambitions have grown substantially.
Stern was furious at the news that the United States Supreme Court overturned the landmark Roe v. Wade decision. That means that abortion is no longer a Constitutional right for women. On Monday’s edition of his SiriusXM show, Howard Stern said it might be time to put his foot down.
“I said to Robin, and I hate to say this, but, but I said to her, ‘I’m actually gonna probably have to run for president now. The only reason I would run and I start — I went into a long winded speech over the weekend to Robin about how I am going to do the very simple thing. That’ll set the country straight one vote, one person, no more of this Electoral College, I’m getting rid of it. And then Robin said, ‘Well, can you do that as president?’ And I said, ‘I don’t know, let’s find out!
The problem with most presidents, they have too big of an agenda. The only agenda I would have is to make the country fair again, this whole mess that we’re in with that, um, lightweight Clarence Thomas, who’s been sitting there like Darth Vader, dormant, waiting for other cooks to join the Supreme Court and waiting and waiting through the decades until — and he saw this, [Brett] Kavanaugh get on and [Amy] Coney Barrett — whatever the f*ck her name is.
This is Trump’s legacy. I hope he’s happy — back alley abortions.”
Howard Stern still has a lot of followers, but since moving to satellite radio has had a much smaller reach than during his heyday. Still, his opinion carries a lot of weight with his fans. Stern probably isn’t serious about a presidential bid, but he wants his followers to know where he stands on a women’s right to choose.
