SiriusXM radio host Howard Stern told listeners Monday that Donald Trump will be the next president of the United States.
Here is his explanation:
I’ll tell you why I think he’s going to be the nominee: He’s proven that no matter what he says, people dig him.
[Voters} hate illegal immigrants but they just feel funny saying it — whether it’s rational or not — ‘Is the illegal immigrant draining your economy?’ Possibly. ‘Is he taking away your job?’ Possibly.
Trump has been a frequent guest on Stern’s show, which the media star used last year to wildly back Israel in the latest against Hamas missile attacks.
He is against Judaism as an organized religion, but his daughter Emily reportedly has become Orthodox.
The Los Angeles Jewish Journal’s Rob Eshman wrote last year about Stern:
Stern was born Jewish, suffered through—his words—Hebrew school and bar mitzvah studies—and has nothing kind to say about Judaism in particular or organized religion in general.
But the 60 year-old Long Island boy is deeply, tribally, culturally Jewish—and for Jews like him, Israel is the obvious answer to the enduring problem of anti-Semitism, as well as to anti-American, anti-Western, anti-democratic forces in the Middle East.
Stern may be anti-religion, but he is pro-American, pro-democracy, pro-Western and pro-Jews. So, he is pro-Israel.
