Howard Stern is standing with his friend Donald Trump by refusing to release old interviews that the media and Hillary Clinton would use to further attack the GOP nominee.
From The Hill:
“Why don’t I play all the tapes? I have to tell you why: I feel Donald Trump did the show in an effort to be entertaining and have fun with us, and I feel like it would be a betrayal to any of our guests if I sat there and played them now where people are attacking him,” Stern said on his Sirius XM show Monday, according to Billboard.
“We were having a good time,” added Stern, a supporter of Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, saying he didn’t conduct the interviews to “f— someone over.”
“I fully knew what I was doing when I interviewed Trump. I knew I had a guy who loved to talk about sex. … I had a guy who loved to evaluate women on a scale of 1-to-10. These are avenues I went down because I knew it would entertain the audience.”
The video below also states that Stern said he discussed the campaign with Trump in the primary. Stern predicted the current attacks from the press.
Good on Stern for standing by his guests. If he sold Trump down the river, who would trust him enough to go on the show? Trump went on Stern’s show for entertainment, not for political reasons, so of course the conversation was a different platform.
Please share this if you are also standing with Donald Trump!
