Radio host Howard Stern didn't mince words when telling supporters of President Donald Trump what their leader really thinks of them.

Stern pointed out one of the most apparent contradictions between the brand Trump has spent his entire life building and the values he claims to champion on the campaign trail.

For decades, Trump was a symbol of gaudy opulence, with his name festooned across buildings in New York. Now, he paints New York as a symbol of elitism and insists that he's standing up for the so-called little guy.

Stern wasn't having this, telling Trump's supporters that the President doesn't actually like them.

Stern said:

"The oddity in all of this is the people Trump despises most love him the most...He wouldn't even let them in a f***ing hotel. He'd be disgusted by them."

The shock jock encouraged Trump's supporters to visit Trump's resort in Mar-a-Lago, where the President and his biggest donors are frequent visitors:

"Go to Mar-a-Lago. See if there's any people who look like you. I'm talking to you in the audience."

In Stern's opinion, the most patriotic thing Trump could do is resign:

"I do think it would be extremely patriotic of Donald to say 'I'm in over my head and I don't want to be president anymore.' It'd be so patriotic that I'd hug him and then I'd go back to Mar-a-Lago and have a meal with him and feel good about him because it would be such an easy thing to do."

People agreed with both of his assessments.

He went on to say that it wasn't Trump he hated as much as it was his supporters, who enable him:

"I don't hate Donald. I hate you for voting for him, for not having intelligence."


Maybe that's why the President's supporters are so dedicated.

To turn away would be to admit they've been duped.
