Howard Stern has dabbled in politics before. Back in the 1990s, he was briefly involved in the New York Governors race as a Libertarian. While he had strong polling numbers had later dropped out of the race.After the Supreme Court overturned Roe vs. Wade, the famous radio host said that he might get involved again. According to Stern, he may have no choice but to run for President.
The host began his show by saying, “I’m actually going to probably have to run for president now.”
Stern then explained why the decision was so horrible:
“I’ll give you a couple of examples of why this is so horrible, everyday women who go to the doctor and they find out that the baby has horrible birth defects. A lot of times women are raped. A lot of times contraception doesn’t work. And then there’s even a more confusing state where a man and a woman want to have a baby, and all of a sudden things go medically wrong. We were past all of this — and we still are. We as a country voted for Hillary Clinton by 3 million votes.”
It isn’t clear right now whether Stern is serious or not. Time will tell.
