Howard Stern is considering running for President of the United States to “make the country fair again” after the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade on Friday last week.
Radio host Howard Stern has spoken up about the recent overturning of Roe v. Wade, meaning that women in the US no longer have a constitutional right to abortion.
Stern said that he would run a presidential bid with two campaign points in mind: ending the Electoral College and adding five more Supreme Court justices.
On Monday’s episode of his SiriusXM radio show, Stern addressed the rulings made by the Supreme Court in the last week and considered whether or not he could do a better job running the country.
“I said to [longtime co-host] Robin [Quivers], and I hate to say this, but I said to her, ‘I’m actually gonna probably have to run for president now,’” Stern said.
He continued by saying he had “a long-winded speech over the weekend to Robin about how I am going to do the very simple thing that’ll set the country straight: One vote, one person, no more of this Electoral College, I’m getting rid of it.
“And then Robin said, ‘Well, can you do that as president?’ And I said, ‘I don’t know, let’s find out!'”
Stern said if he got in power he would “overturn all of this” and speculated about Justice Clarence Thomas, saying he has been “sitting there like Darth Vader, dormant” waiting for other like-minded justices to join him on the court.

“He all of a sudden (goes) to them in some dark hole and (goes), ‘So I know you guys promised a bunch of these senators you would never go back on precedent, that you would never go back on Roe v. Wade, but you guys were kidding, right?’” Stern referred to Justices Brett Kavanaugh and Amy Coney Barrett’s confirmation hearings that are now in question due to lying under oath.
The radio host laid out his plan in case he actually got into office: “If I do run for president — and I’m not (messing) around, I’m really thinking about it — the only other thing I’m going to do is appoint five more Supreme Court justices,”
“I’m not afraid to do it. As soon as I become president, you’re gonna get five new Supreme Court justices that are going to overturn all this.”
Stern also credited the wave of undoing progression to former President Donald Trump, saying that this was his “legacy”.
“I hope he’s happy — back-alley abortions,”
Maybe another TV personality for President is just what the country needs.
