Donald Trump is an attention whore, which is exactly what lead him to appear on The Howard Stern Show multiple times throughout the years to denigrate women and brag about his sex life. These appearances have come back to bite the GOP nominee in the derriere repeatedly during this election season — and Stern, the shock jock himself, is now weighing in on just who Trump is.
According to Stern, the reason Trump said such horrible things about women on his show is simple: it’s just who he is.
None of this was hidden,” Stern said. “This is who Trump is. He was always bombastic. He always rated women. He always talked in a misogynistic, sexist kind of way, but he did it sort of proudly and out in the open; and he still won the Republican primary. In one sense, the fact that we do an interview and people’s personalities come out, I’m very proud of that.
Stern also said that he was flabbergasted when Trump announced that he was actually going to run for president and explained why he hadn’t used the tapes of his own show against the White House hopeful.
“I, certainly, in a million years, I didn’t expect Trump to seriously run for president,” Stern said. “All the times he came on the show he was a very good sport and he was in the spirit of the show. He’s been very friendly toward me, friendly toward the show, always coming on, so I certainly wasn’t going to f— him over by releasing those tapes. Those tapes are out there on the internet anyway, so that was my stance.”
Stern added that he is very proud of the show and the way he conducts interviews. In his opinion, because he puts forth an effort to “talk like real people,” his interviews tend to be more revealing. This is exactly why Trump’s appearances have given such insight into the womanizing sexual predator he really is.

“As far as my role goes, I feel proud in the sense that, I don’t think anybody else does an interview the way this show does,” he continued. “Everyone, when they interview, is sort of afraid to talk like real people. Now those words are biting him in the ass, but in general, we have a different kind of interviewing process than any other place. Which is why, all of the sudden, everyone, CNN, NBC, Fox, they have to turn to our tapes because it’s a real conversation.”
Stern has said that he may be friends with Trump, but he is a Democrat and will be voting for Hillary Clinton.
