Howard Stern apparently tried several times to get Hillary Clinton on his show before the end of the 2016 presidential elections. The comedian [?] boats that if she had only appeared on his show, she would have won the elections. He made this claim on the Steven Colbert show.
He also declared his love for Bernie Sanders…
“I thought that if I did an interview with Hillary, … she would reach a new audience,” Stern said.
He noted his potential listenership of 66 million people and how the election had hinged on less than 80,000 votes in Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin states where his show is popular. But the sit-down never materialized.
“What if Hillary had come on and, forget politics for a second, but what if we could have talked about her humanity, why she got into public service?” Stern wondered aloud.
“Here is a woman who dedicated her whole life to public service,” Stern continued. “What was her life like as a little girl growing up? What was her romance with Bill Clinton? What was she thinking when she was secretary of state? What was she thinking when she was the first lady? Was she saying to herself, ‘I wish I could be president,’ or was she satisfied with that? There were a million questions I could have asked her that I think would have humanized her.”
“I don’t think he wanted to be the president. I knew him,” Stern told Colbert. “He had a great life at Mar-a-Lago. He was running around town. He played golf. He had a good time.”
Howard Stern has been making talk-circuit rounds the past few weeks to promote his new memoir, “Howard Comes Again.” Most recently, he admitted to having a personal fondness for Donald Trump despite their political differences.
“There’s a part of me that really likes Donald, but I just don’t agree politically,” he told The Hollywood Reporter.
The radio show host also openly defended late-night host Jimmy Fallon for committing the egregious sin of “humanizing” Donald Trump by “messing up” his hair.
“I had said to Jimmy, ‘It is absolutely absurd that anyone would lay a trip on you. I would do the same bit,'” Stern said in his book. “Everyone was curious what was going on in that bird’s nest, and you wanted to sit there and see. I thought the bit was fantastic. I think people tried to blame you or say, ‘Hey, Jimmy got Donald Trump elected,’ this or that.”
The truth is there was no amount of ‘publicity’, even from someone as disgustingly popular as Stern, that could have landed Clinton a seat in the White House. The American people were not going to let her back in.
