Howard Stern: Kid Rock Has A Good Chance Of Winning In Michigan Senate Race

Earlier this month, rock star Kid Rock, whose real name is Robert Ritchie, announced his bid for the US Senate seat in his home state of Michigan. The position is currently occupied by three-term Democrat Debbie Stabenow.

Kid Rock insists this is not a publicity stunt, noting his years of political activism in the Republican Party. Rock has been encouraged to run by emerging as the favorite in a new poll.

“I believe if you work your butt off and pay taxes, you should be able to easily understand and navigate the laws, tax codes, health care and anything else the government puts in place that affects us all,” said Rock.

Popular online political magazine “Politico” is urging their readers to take him seriously. Running the headline “Senator Kid Rock.”

So if you’re still not taking Kid Rock seriously, here’s why you should: His path to the U.S. Senate is far easier than Trump’s was to the White House.

“Presuming Kid Rock doesn’t get caught in bed with a little boy, or beat up a woman between now and August 2018, he’s going to win the nomination if he gets in,” says Dennis Lennox, a Republican political consultant in Michigan. “I think there’s no question about that. I think he’s the prohibitive favorite if he gets in.”

Howard Stern also likes Kid Rock’s chances.

“People laugh when they say Senator Kid Rock but he’d have a good chance of winning in Michigan. They have a very popular senator there that he’d be running against. She gets high marks. Kid Rock has been instrumental in so many charities. He actually is a pretty serious, high minded guy and a good guy,” said Stern.

It is not that uncommon for an entertainer to reach high office. Prior to winning the presidency in 1980, Ronald Reagan, a former Hollywood actor, became Governor of California in 1967 with no past political experience.

In 1998, actor and professional wrestler Jesse Ventura was elected as Governor of Minnesota. In 2003, former bodybuilder and actor Arnold Schwarzenegger was elected as Governor of California.

In the Senate, former comedian and Saturday Night Live writer Al Franken has represented Minnesota since 2009, whom Howard Stern has supported throughout.

Netflix Documentary: Hulk Hogan, Howard Stern, Donald Trump and Freedom of the Press

Netflix Documentary, NOBODY SPEAK: Trials of the Free Press was just recently released.

In 2015, Hulk Hogan sued the news website Gawker for posting a sex tape featuring him in bed with Heather Clem, then wife of his best friend, Bubba the Love Sponge. The jury awarded Hogan $140 million in damages which forced Gawker to shut down. Last year, Gawker settled with Hulk aka Terry Bollea for $31 million.

Despite the ridiculous elements of the trial — seeing Hulk Hogan on the witness stand, dressed in all black, including his trademark bandana — it turned out to be a tremendously important First Amendment case. The trial was quintessentially American in its mix of absurdity and massive implications.

Details of the Gawker case read like something out of a Saturday Night Live sketch. Hogan reportedly knew he was being filmed, and he later joked about the tape to Howard Stern. Hogan bragged about his sexual performance to Stern but insisted that was a part of the character Hulk Hogan, not the real Terry Bollea, who was personally traumatized by the leak. Hulk was accused of being racist after the audio version of the sex tape came out – which very well may have negatively impacted his life and future employment opportunities.

During the trail, Michael Sullivan, Gawker’s lawyer played an audio clip in which Hogan is discussing the size of his penis while appearing as a guest on The Howard Stern Show.

Sullivan asked if there’s any doubt as to whether Hogan is referring to the length of his manhood.

“Well, it’s not mine, because mine isn’t that size, but we were discussing the length of Hulk Hogan’s.”

An exasperated and dumbfounded Sullivan only responded with one word. “Seriously?”

“No, seriously, I do not have a 10-inch penis. No, I do not. Seriously. Believe that. Seriously,” Hogan responded.

The Hogan trial eventually bankrupted Gawker and its co-founder Nick Denton. So how could the Hulkster, who wasn’t exactly at his peak financially while all this was going down, possibly afford his expensive legal counsel?

Well, it turns out his legal expenses were bankrolled by tech mogul (PayPal founder), billionaire and Trump supporter Peter Thiel, who was outed by Gawker as being gay. Did Thiel use Hogan as revenge against Gawker? The new documentary Nobody Speak: Trials of the Free Press, currently streaming on Netflix, uses the Gawker lawsuit as its theoretical jumping-off point. It explores how the case is symptomatic of a much larger issue facing journalism. The documentary does cover Donald Trump in a negative light, portraying him as a threat to the status quo of journalism. Lambasting him for repeatedly taking about “fake news” during his rise to the presidency.

Howard Stern: Megyn Kelly was just bullshitting Alex Jones

Megyn Kelly is taking a lot of criticism from both liberals and conservatives on social media for interviewing Infowars radio host Alex Jones. Liberals are upset that Alex Jones was given a platform on NBC since he has questioned whether the murders of 20 children and six adult staff members in 2012 at Sandy Hook school was a hoax.

His more “right-wing” base is upset at Megyn Kelly and NBC for lying to Alex Jones, misleading him to believe the interview would be a long form profile piece on the man himself. Alex Jones, who secretly recorded pre-interview conversations with Kelly, asked Kelly if the segment would be an “investigative report on fake news,” which she quickly shut down, “no, no, no, hell no.”

Turns out that’s exactly what the segment was. Kelly challenged Jones from the start, introducing him as a “radical conspiracy theorist” and promising to confront him on his “notorious lie” about Sandy Hook.

Alex Jones looked visibly tense during the interview and the two frequently interrupted each other.

Jones also commented on his connection to President Trump, who has appeared on his Infowars radio show during the campaign.

“I think my influence on Trump is way, way lower than what mainstream media has said,” he commented. Appearing humble he downplayed their relationship, saying he and the president were friendly, but not friends.

Howard Stern reacted to the pre-interview conversations that Jones had released. Howard Stern had a laugh at Megyn Kelly trying to entice Alex to do the interview. “She’s just bullshitting him.”

Stern purposely downplayed Jones’s notoriety and popularity, a throwback to his days more contentious days on terrestrial radio. “Alex Jones wants publicity you don’t have to pitch him.” However, Howard himself is not a stranger to conspiracy theories. At one point he talked about a “cover-up at The Pentagon.”

“We saw The Pentagon get blown up. Now let me tell you something. If a plane went into The Pentagon which I never believed a plane went into The Pentagon. I have no clue where that came from. There is not one tire track on the lawn,” said Stern back in the early 2000’s.

“It was hit by a missile. It is clear we are being lied to.”

Dennis Rodman gifts Donald Trump’s book “Art of the Deal” to Kim Jong-un

Former NBA player Dennis Rodman has given North Korea’s Sports Minister a copy of US President Donald Trump’s book The Art of the Deal as a gift intended for the country’s leader, Kim Jong-un.

Rodman arrived in North Korea for his fourth visit to the country.

Before flying from China to North Korea, he told reporters he was “just trying to open a door” with North Korea and was travelling as a private citizen.

Along with President Trump’s book, other gifts he presented for Kim Jong-un included a copy of Where’s Waldo? The Totally Essential Travel Collection, a mermaid puzzle, two sets of soap and two autographed jerseys.

The puzzle and the Where’s Waldo? are likely for Kim’s daughter.

Rodman also met North Korean Olympic athletes, including judo gold medallist An Kum-ae.

“All of you guys should be proud of yourselves, because, you know, a lot of people don’t give you guys credit, because this is such a small country, and not many people from North Korea can compete around the world,” said Rodman.

“But for you guys to come back here in your country, with a medal, that says a lot about North Korea, because people don’t really take North Korea so seriously about sports or anything like that.”

North Koreas Sports Minister made clear that Rodman was viewed fondly in North Korea.

“In the past, our respected supreme leader met you several times and he used his precious time to watch the basketball match with the players you brought here,” Kim Il-guk told Rodman.

“In the past he met you, so our people all know you well. And also we feel that you are an old friend.”

CNN: Howard Stern was 100% right about Donald Trump

Howard Stern made a few predictions about Donald Trump’s presidency two weeks after Trump had taken office. According to CNN, Howard Stern’s predictions have come true.

Donald Trump told Reuters in an interview this week that he misses the days before he was president.

“I loved my previous life. I had so many things going,” he said. “This is more work than in my previous life. I thought it would be easier.”

12 days into Trump’s presidency, Howard Stern, SiriusXM radio host and Trump’s longtime friend, publicly predicted this moment. During the Feb. 1 broadcast of his show, Stern said he’d told Trump early on that the presidency wouldn’t be good for him.

“I really was sincere, I said, ‘Why would you want to be the president of the United States? You’re not going to be beloved, it’s going to be a f*cking nightmare in your life,” Stern recalled telling Trump.

“He stepped into a situation that’s really not a win for him,” he added. “He’s a 70 year-old guy, he’s got a great life, gorgeous wife, great kids, he’s got helicopters, airplanes, all the accouterments of the great life… so now to step into this f*cking mess, and for what? There are people who are better suited for this kind of thing.”

“He didn’t need this in his life.”

Stern said he believed the presidency wouldn’t be a “healthy experience for Trump.”

“I know something about Donald Trump, he really does want to be loved,” Stern said. “He does want people to really love him. That drives him a lot. I think that he has a very sensitive ego and when you’re president of the United States, people are going to be very very critical.”

As Howard Stern commented, Donald Trump seems to have a “sensitive ego” which can be a problematic trait for any politician in Washington. Trumps Presidency is under constant attack from CNN, mainstream media, political opponents, and critics everywhere. Trump has lost a lot of support from his hardcore base after he green-lit the tomahawk strike on Syria. Tension with North Korea is heating up rapidly and the next 100 days of Trumps presidency could be more uneasy than the last.

Howard Stern: Sean Spicer should be fired for Holocaust comparison

SiriusXM host Howard Stern suggested that President Trump fire White House press secretary Sean Spicer over his controversial remarks about the Holocaust.

Stern heard Spicer’s comments, he thought to himself, “Trump’s got to fire this guy.”

Press Secretary Sean Spicer had said that Adolf Hitler “didn’t even sink to using chemical weapons.” Obvious forgetting Hitler’s supposed use of gas chambers to exterminate Jews during the Holocaust.

In a recent interview with CNN, Spicer apologized for making “an inappropriate, insensitive reference to the Holocaust.” He says there was no comparison and “it was a mistake to do that.”

Spicer later indicated that Hitler had not gassed “his own people the same way that Assad is doing.”

Stern still not convinced by Spicer’s intent went on to say that he has actually managed to make Assad look good.

“He actually got [Assad] to look not so bad for using chemical weapons on his own people because the discussion became, Sean Spicer. How could you not know that Hitler marched his own people to concentration camps and turned on chemical gas? It was somewhat remarkable that a guy this high up in the administration wouldn’t know this,” Stern said.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has called Sean Spicer’s gassing story “groundless accusations” and called for a “detailed and unbiased investigation” into the deaths.

Howard Stern defends George Takei. Not impressed by Milo Yiannopoulos!

Howard Stern commented on Milo Yiannopoulos’s recent controversy regarding his stance on child abuse.

Milo appeared on the Joe Rogan Experience in 2015 where he discussed his sexual relationship with a Catholic Priest named “Father Michael,” which he allegedly had as a teenager at age 14.

During the conversation with Joe, Milo creepily tried to normalize pedophilia suggesting an older man could mentor a younger boy and help the child understand his sexuality.

Trying to defend Yiannopoulos’s comments, many right-wing publications started combing the web searching for liberal hypocrisy. Glen Becks “The Blaze” ran a story titled “Double standard? Liberal actor George Takei once laughed about adult/minor sexual relationships, too” suggesting Takei was trying to undermine the severity of child sex abuse when reminiscing and laughing about one of his childhood summer camp memories on The Howard Stern Show.

“It’s ridiculous. George was talking about his own experience at summer camp. He had an affair with an older guy or something. He wasn’t advocating this kind of thing but for him it was a pleasant experience,” Stern said.

It seems Milo Yiannopoulos never reported the pedophile Priest to police. Milo was only a child at the time the abuse took place but he does have a moral responsibility to speak up now since Father Michael could very well be abusing more kids. Seemingly a terrible situation for everyone involved.

Jimmy Kimmel roasts President Trump at Oscars

Long time friend of the Howard Stern show and 89th Academy Awards host Jimmy Kimmel told the Oscars audience he was awaiting President Donald Trump’s tweets in response to his opening monologue — where he implied President Donald Trump is racist and that the foreign viewers watching the awards show “now hate us.”

“We don’t discriminate against people based on what countries they come from. We discriminate against them based on their age and weight.”

While introducing Academy President Cheryl Boone Isaacs, Kimmel said she is “a rare president, a president who believes in both arts and sciences.”

“We have no tolerance for fake news. Fake tans we love, but fake news?” Kimmel spoke too soon not being able to foresee that the award for Best Picture would be mistakenly presented the to the wrong movie – making it the biggest fake news event in Oscars history.

“I’m not the man to unite this country,” Kimmel said, adding there were millions and millions of people watching the award show at the moment. He urged everyone watching to “have a positive considerate conversation not as liberals or conservatives but as Americans – if we all did that it would make America great again. It starts with us.”

Howard Stern: Donald Trump is PISSED he won.

Howard Stern recently had a caller ask him if he had any memories of Donald Trump being at his wedding. Stern spent less time reminiscing about his wedding and more time giving his thoughts on now President, Donald Trump.

“I personally wish that he had never run, I told him that, because I actually think this is something that is gonna be detrimental to his mental health too, because, he wants to be liked, he wants to be loved,” Stern said.

Howard went on to call his current relationship with Trump is “weird.”

“I use to hear from Donald all the time and now I don’t as much. Maybe he’s mad that I was a Hillary Clinton voter.”

“It’s a sad thing. I know Donald. I know him well and he would call me all the time. Maybe at some point, he was like, hey you’re not campaigning for me.”

Or maybe “Donald” is busy running the country. Stern also alluded to some kind of conspiracy that Donald Trump wasn’t actually looking to become The President of the United States. Instead, Trump ran as a publicity stunt in hopes of receiving a larger paycheck from NBC.

Howard Stern: I told you what I believe. Here’s what happened. So, when Donald’s first book came out it was called Art of the Deal. He wasn’t that famous. He had to sell books. He said I’m thinking about running for president and the book sold like crazy. And a couple years later, he put out the second book and it coincided with an election. And there was a rumor out, Trump’s going to run for president, which he started. The second book sold well.

And then his deal with NBC was coming up for renegotiation and I don’t think NBC was going to air [Celebeirty Apprentice]. So he said what the fuck I’ll throw my hat in. It was good television but this time he announced: I’m running. So what happened is he started winning primaries and getting big crowds.

Robin Quivers: I thought he was making ridiculous statements so people wouldn’t vote for him. But people voted for him because of those statements.

Howard Stern: Yeah, people fucked the whole thing up. He just wanted a couple of more bucks from NBC. He’s pissed he won.

Howard Stern and Donald Trump have been friends for a long time now. Trump was a regular guest on The Howard Stern Show, making numerous appearances over the years. It’s difficult to say how this will affect their relationship since both of them hold loyalty in high regard.

Buzzfeed and CNN Publish Fake News Trump Story That Was 4Chan Troll

We are entering an era of fake news. Yesterday evening Buzzfeed published a “dossier” making allegations that the Russian government had gained compromising information on Donald Trump.

CNN reported Tuesday that a two-page synopsis of the report was given to President Obama and President-elect Trump.

Buzzfeed News:

A dossier making explosive — but unverified — allegations that the Russian government has been “cultivating, supporting and assisting” President-elect Donald Trump for years and gained compromising information about him has been circulating among elected officials, intelligence agents, and journalists for weeks.

The dossier, which is a collection of memos written over a period of months, includes specific, unverified, and potentially unverifiable allegations of contact between Trump aides and Russian operatives, and graphic claims of sexual acts documented by the Russians.

A new level of journalism! Check out parts of the report:

In 2009, Trump went to the bathroom in his Moscow hotel. Once in the bathroom he yelled out, “I hate black people!” then proceeded to relieve himself in the toilet. After he was finished he reportedly said, “I take the biggest dumps, nobody takes bigger dumps than me, believe me” and followed with “Y’know what I refer to my poop as-an Obama, because he’s shit, he sucks and was born in Kenya”

Trump spent Christmas 2010 in Moscow. The FSB arranged to have him dress in childlike pajamas and open dozens of presents in an elaborate simulation. The presents were Japanimation (anime) films which depict sex acts (see: HENTAI in glossary). A movie theater was rented for TRUMP to subsequently watch these films with a crowd of prostitutes.

Yeah, it turns out this whole story is nonsense and was created as “Trump fanfiction” by 4chan users to troll the establishment. Allegedly, the story was sent to anti-Trumper Rick Wilson knowing he would act on this tip. Rick Wilson, who proceeded to send it to the CIA, which then put it in their official classified intelligence report on the election.

Incredible. The mainstream media is desperately grasping for any story that could hurt Trump, real or fake.
