Howard Stern / Donald Trump Election News.
Now, the shock jock is speaking out for the first time about Trump, the role his radio show has played in the campaign and the controversial statements Trump made about women.
Stern, a Democrat, said he wasn’t replaying his interviews with Trump because to do so would be a “betrayal.”
“Donald Trump did the show in an effort to be entertaining and have fun with us,” Stern said on his show on Sirius satellite radio. “I fully knew what I was doing when I interviewed Trump. I knew I had a guy who loved to talk about sex.… I had a guy who loved to evaluate women on a scale of 1 to 10. These are avenues I went down because I knew it would entertain the audience.”
Stern, who considers Trump a friend, said he has asked why Trump is running for president and said he was surprised the recordings from his radio show didn’t emerge earlier.
