Howard Stern has never shied away from making bold, shocking or controversial statements on the air. Last week Howard made strong comments directed at his listeners who voted for President Donald Trump, while explaining Trump’s disdain for some of his biggest supporters:
“The oddity in all of this is the people Trump despises most, love him the most. The people who are voting for Trump for the most part… he wouldn’t even let them in a f***ing hotel. He’d be disgusted by them. Go to Mar-a-Lago, see if there’s any people who look like you. I’m talking to you in the audience. The Trump voter who idolizes the guy, he despises you.”
Howard Stern continued:
“I don’t hate Donald… I hate you for voting for him, for not having intelligence. For not being able to see what’s going on with the coronavirus, for not being able to see what the justice department is doing. I hate you, I don’t want you here.”
While it hasn’t been determined if Howard Stern’s listeners who support Trump will actually stop listening, Donald Trump Jr. did fire back on Twitter:

It must kill Hollywood Howard to know that more people will see this tweet than listen to his show.
That’s what happens when you turn your back on your working class fanbase & bend your knee to the same MSM you used to mock.

Howard responded sarcastically on SiriusXM’s “The Howard Stern Show”:
“I can’t argue with him, that kid is such a success. He is such a wit. He is such a genius. He would have made a fortune if he wasn’t under his father’s thumb. Game over. You can’t argue with a genius like that.”
