On Wednesday, the radio personality revealed during his SiriusXM show that he doesn’t think being POTUS is “going to be a healthy experience” for the former Celebrity Apprentice star.
Specifically, Mr. Stern “wishes” the Trumpster never ran for the presidency as he is worried the position will backfire and affect his pal’s physical AND mental health!
In case you forgot, Howard and Drumpf have been friendly for many years as the Commander-In-Chief has appeared on his show a few times. The 63-year-old explained:
“I personally wish that he had never run. I told him that because I actually think this is something that is going to be detrimental to his mental health too, because he wants to be liked, he wants to be loved. He wants people to cheer for him.”
You can say that again! Howard continued:
“I like Donald very much personally. I was shocked when he decided to run for president and even more shocked that people took it seriously.”
In regards to how the 70-year-old is handling the new position? The Hillary Clinton supporter isn’t buying his friend’s new conservative right beliefs. The NY native noted:
“I don’t believe that, for example now, that he’s had some sort of rethink on abortion and all this. I think he’s sort of playing it to his constituency, which is this religious right.”
Hmmm, inneresting point. Not to mention, Howard brought up the fact that Donald used to back Miz Clinton. The industry vet even called out the controversial politician for his seemingly phony war against the media and Hollywood. He concluded:
“He’s now on this anti-Hollywood kick. [Trump] loves Hollywood. First of all, he loves the press. He lives for it. He loves people in Hollywood. He only wants to hobnob with them. And all of this hatred and stuff directed towards him, it’s not good for him. It’s not good. Listen, there’s a reason every president who leaves the office has gray hair.”
We’re not sure Donald loves anyone but himself anymore.
What do YOU think? Does Howard have a point?
