Shock jock Howard Stern continues to insist that Donald Trump regrets his presidential win. The Hill reports that he told listeners of his SiriusXM radio show, “Believe me, nobody wanted Hillary to win more than Donald Trump. He didn’t need this. He’s got the kind of life you dream of.”
Stern’s theory comes in response to President Trump’s comments to Reuters last week about his life before the presidency. “I had so many things going. I actually — this is more work than in my previous life. I thought it would be easier.”
Stern has long claimed that Trump regrets his presidency, saying in early February, “He’s pissed he won. He still wants Hillary Clinton to win. He’s so f—g pissed, he’s hoping he can find some voter fraud and hand it over to Hillary.” This week Stern added, “Seventy-year-old guy who has made so much money — have billions of dollars — that he has his own helicopter, he has his own airplane, he’s got his hot wife. He’s got fame from a number one television show…he has the life.”
Trump has been a guest many times on Stern’s show and is a longtime friend to the host, who said in February that he “liked Donald very much personally,” though he has rejected the idea that he is an “insider” to the President.
Trump’s several appearances on Stern’s show since the ‘90s have handed over some of the biggest revelations about the President, including gems like Trump’s 10-point scale of female attractiveness, rankings of women by their body parts, and of course, his legendary admission that it is OK to call his daughter Ivanka “a piece of ass.”
So what does Stern think the President should do about his predicament? “I would create a health-crisis and resign over it,” Stern says.
