Legendary radio personality Howard Stern announced on Monday's edition of The Howard Stern Show that he is considering running for President in 2024 because of the Supreme Court's overturning of Roe v. Wade, calling the run his "civic duty."
And while Stern is known for his frequently hyperbolic and irreverent takes, he seems to be serious about the claim, telling his co-hosts "I'm not fu*king around"
So what's his platform?
It's simple—abolishing the electoral college and expanding the Supreme Court to 14 justices in order to "overturn all this bullsh*t."
Stern gave an impassioned take on the Court's destruction of Roe on his show, lamenting the backsliding it represents for the country. He said:
“We were past all of this — and we still are."
"We as a country voted for Hillary Clinton by 3 million votes."
"We voted for Biden because it was repugnant — all this horsesh*t."
"But now for life, we’re stuck."
Stern's solution is to take the reins of power himself. He went on to say:
"I’m actually going to probably have to run for president now.
"I am going to do the very simple thing that’ll set the country straight: one vote, one person. No more Electoral College. I’m getting rid of it."
He went on to say that the problem with most presidents as they are overly ambitious. By contrast, Stern summed up his entire plan with one simple sentence.
"The only agenda I would have is to make the country fair again.”
And for Stern, that adds up to just one other goal, besides abolishing the Electoral College.
"The other thing is, if I do run for president — and I’m not f*cking around, I’m really thinking about it... the only other thing I’m going to do is appoint five more Supreme Court justices."
Okay, then. Stern 2024!
On Twitter, Stern's comments definitely raise some eyebrows, and plenty of people were down for a Stern Administration.
If Stern linked up with The Rock as his running mate? That's an unbeatable ticket. Stern/Rock 2024!
