Howard Stern Calls Trump “Treasonous” For Mishandling COVID19

Back in the 80s and 90s when it was still somehow tolerated, Donald Trump would go on Howard Stern’s radio show and say the most disgusting things about women, including his own daughter. With Stern egging him on, Trump would assign numeric values to famous women, often calling them “pigs” or “dogs”, with Rosie O’Donnell as the standout example. While Stern has never made himself out to be a paragon of ethics, even he has a line, and the relationship between the two New Yorkers has cooled to the point of frozen ever since the radio shock jock began speaking out against Trump’s policies.

But now Stern is bumping his war of words up a notch, outright accusing Trump of committing treason against the United States as a result of his botched response to the coronavirus epidemic. On Stern’s Monday show, a man identifying himself as a doctor in Cleveland, Ohio called in to describe the “hell” he was experiencing because patients flooding hospitals remain ignorant, or even skeptical, about the dangers of COVID-19. That caller also worried that health care workers, the first line of defense, are being taken out of the fight either by infection or exhaustion.

Stern blasted the lame duck for focusing his energy on trying to overturn the election he lost last month rather than addressing the spreading pandemic that has killed nearly 300,000 Americans this year and is getting worse.

“This is treasonous, what’s going on right now, telling people to run around, go to rallies…” Stern said.

Robin Quivers, Stern’s long-time sidekick, interrupted, saying it “might not be treasonous, but it’s certainly criminal.”

“Well…” Stern agreed. “It certainly is.”

Other than mentioning Sunday night that his personal attorney Rudy Giuliani had tested positive for COVID-19, Trump has largely ignored COVID19 on his busy Twitter feed lately. Another Trump lawyer, Jenna Ellis, has also tested positive for COVID19.
