While Howard Stern “can’t find anything more boring” than having a political discussion, he broke his rule Wednesday to discuss President Trump’s immigration and border security address that was broadcast the night before.
The men go way back, and you may recall their conversations about “piece of ass” Ivanka Trump on Stern’s show, so the self-proclaimed King of All Media had many notes on Trump’s primetime performance: Skip the teleprompter, work on the “heavy breathing” and stop with the spray tan. (“I never saw him this orange or with those rings around his eyes.”) But while Stern said he expected Trump’s speech to be “full of s***,” it topped his expectations.
After saying “there’s no crisis” at the U.S.-Mexico border, Stern went on to talk about Trump’s proposed border wall — which is behind the ongoing partial government shutdown — saying it won’t solve any of the country’s immigration problems. He brushed it off as being just a campaign tactic that “morons can get behind.”
“The wall’s a problem because it’s a waste of money, even Donald knows that,” Stern said. “You gotta know Donald a bit to understand what’s going on here. The wall’s a simplistic answer to our problems with immigration. It’s something that, you know, morons can get behind because they’re like, ‘Oh, yeah, if you build a wall no one can get over it.’ But it’s not that simple.”
