Noted shock-jock Howard Stern suggested he may run against former President Donald Trump in 2024 and says he knows just how to "beat his ass."

The SiriusXM host says he considers a potential White House bid a "civic duty" if Trump, who lost the 2020 election, seeks another term in office.

You can hear what Stern said in the audio recording below.

Stern suggested he would win by playing that "f***ing clip" of Trump "trying to fix the election over and over again."

His comments were a reference to a call Trump made to Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, a Republican, during which the former President encouraged Raffensperger to help him swing the election in his favor.

During his phone call with Raffensperger, Trump ignored any argument that went against his insistence that he won an election that had already been decided for Joe Biden, then the President-elect.

By the time of the call, several recounts—and an audit of the result—had already determined that the election was both free and fair.

In response to Stern's claim that he would "beat his [Trump's] ass," his co-host Robin Quivers said that beating Trump in the 2024 election "can't" be left to the Democratic Party.

Stern's suggestion has received a mixed response online, with some cheering him on and others cautioning against it.

On Monday, Trump hinted he would announce a presidential run after next year's midterm elections, which will determine if Democrats manage to retain control of both chambers of the legislature.

Speaking to Fox News, he said "a lot of great people who are thinking about running are waiting for that decision, because they're not going to run if I run."

Trump's advisers have previously instructed him to wait before he makes an official announcement confirming his candidacy.

According to a Washington Post report, which cited individuals familiar with the discussions, advisers who have told the impatient Trump he has to wait before making an announcement are nervous that an early announcement would mobilize Democrats and increase voter turnout.
