Fox News reports:
“I’m actually going to probably have to run for president now,” the SiriusXM host said Monday on the “Howard Stern Show.”
Stern said he would put an end to the Electoral College, however, as president, he could not unilaterally do this.
“I am going to do the very simple thing that’ll set the country straight: one vote, one person,” Stern said.
While criticizing the Supreme Court’s recent ruling to strike down Roe v. Wade, the radio host also said if elected he would immediately pack the Court and appoint five more justices to the bench.
“The other thing is, if I do run for president, and I’m not f—–g around, I’m really thinking about it — because the only other thing I’m going to do is appoint five more Supreme Court justices,” Stern said.
Stern joins a crowded field of Democrats who have voiced interest in launching. presidential campaign, despite the fact current President Joe Biden has publicly said he plans to run for a second term.
