Veteran radio host Howard Stern recently slammed supporters of former president Donald Trump’s followers on his show. He said, “I mean, my God in heaven, I feel like I’m in a nation of nincompoops. I’m hoping there is still some more brilliant, bright, vibrant people who love this country.” He also suggested they “go live in Russia” to comprehend the actual loss of freedom.
He argued that “they have never lived under a dictator. Their freedoms have never really been threatened,” adding that “they have no idea what it would be like to live under a different type of system other than democracy.” Stern claimed that “They don’t get it. They are morons. They think somehow that the world would be better under a guy like Trump like he would take care of them better.” Stern then proposed Trump supporters move to Russia and live “under that f*** nut Putin” to experience “misery.”
He continued by saying that his late father came to America to pursue freedom and that native-born Americans couldn’t comprehend what it was like to live in a place without real freedom.
