Trump Jr. Knocks Howard Stern For Going Establishment, ‘Acting Like Hillary’
Howard Stern, the king of all media, the rebel without a cause, the shock jock to end all shock jocks, is now a geezerly establishment shill for the Democratic Party.
In response to the famed radio host proclaiming that he now hates Trump supporters, Donald Trump Jr. scolded Stern for “acting like Hillary” by painting his dad’s voters like deplorables.
“The reality is this: My dad was able to do what he did when he won this election by being able to relate to those guys, the blue-collar worker that Donald Trump spent his entire career with,” Trump Jr. said during an interview on the “Jim and Sam Show” on Thursday. “Donald Trump was a better developer and built a brand because he spent time talking to those guys. There’s a reason why you see guys within our company, even today, they started off as construction guys, started off as drivers, and they’re like executives because he gave them a chance.”
On his Sirus XM radio show, Howard Stern went as far to suggest that President Trump hates his supporters with the same fiery passion as the Democrats.
“One thing Donald loves is celebrities, he loves the famous,” Stern said on Tuesday. “He loves it. He loves to be in the mix.”
“The oddity in all of this is the people Trump despises most, love him the most,” Stern continued. “The people who are voting for Trump for the most part… he wouldn’t even let them in a f—ing hotel. He’d be disgusted by them. Go to Mar-a-Lago, see if there’s any people who look like you. I’m talking to you in the audience … I don’t hate Donald. I hate you for voting for him, for not having intelligence.”
Trump Jr. said these comments will only further push people into the president’s camp, likening it to when Hillary Clinton referred to the president’s supporters as a “basket of deplorables.” Trump Jr. even went as to far to accuse Howard Stern of embracing political correctness.
“He’s acting like Hillary, which was, you know, probably what cost her some of the election, was calling half the country deplorables for wanting to support someone who’s going to get things done for them, and he did,” he said. “I don’t know if he just got a taste of Hollywood when he went on, you know, the T.V. show and, all of the sudden, the establishment’s sort of politically correct people that he used to hate, now he really wants to be loved by them.”
“I imagine that Stern’s trying to, you know, grab some attention. There’s a lot of other people doing sort of, you know, that took his model, I think he was a real innovator years ago, but took his model and are frankly just doing it much better now. So I think he’s just probably trying to grab headlines,” he continued.
