SiriusXM satellite radio personality Howard Stern slammed “out of your f***ing skull” MAGA voters for continuing to support Herschel Walker in Georgia on a recent broadcast.
The original radio “shock jock,” who built a reputation on standing up to censorship and government control and on speaking his mind even when doing so comes at a cost, is no MAGA fan. He’s spoken out before about the political movement’s spread of conspiracy theories, particularly during the height of the pandemic, and now he’s talking to his listeners about the midterm elections.
Speaking about the Senate race in Georgia, Stern was clear about his distaste for Republican Herschel Walker, whose campaign has been plagued with scandals from the candidate insisting an honorary police badge is “real” to a number of exes coming forward to say he’d pressured them into abortions, despite his public anti-abortion stance. While Stern has been outspokenly pro-choice, though, it wasn’t Walker’s position, or hypocrisy, on abortion that he focused on.
Instead, he hit out at the widespread appropriation of “free speech” as an excuse to say inexcusable things and expect to face no backlash, and at how utterly unfit several candidates are overall, before homing in on what “f***ing dummies” Georgia voters must be for Walker to have a chance.
“Some of these candidates that people are actually — f***ing Herschel Walker, holy f***, they’re saying he’s gonna win in Georgia. Are you f***ing dummies?…how the f*** could you elect that guy? You gotta be out of your f***ing skull…I don’t care what party, what you believe, what you think would be good for America. Would you really vote for this f***ing…I was gonna say “mental case” but I don’t even know if that’s fair to mental cases,” Stern exclaimed.
Stern has said in recent months that, following the Supreme Court’s overturn of Roe v. Wade which destroyed half a century of precedent in a single ruling, he’d even consider running for president himself, and that if he did, his first goals would be to “appoint five more Supreme Court justices…that are gonna overturn all this,” and to eliminate the Electoral College in favor of a one-person-one-vote policy, Billboard reported in June.
