President Donald Trump wants to rule America as king, Howard Stern said on CNN on Monday.
The satellite radio host was interviewed by CNN’s Anderson Cooper about his long career in radio — and his long personal relationship with Donald Trump.
Stern explained why he was hoping Trump would invite him to Camp David.
“The only thing I really wanted was I him to take me to Camp David. Because I — my father and I used to joke about this, that if the American public got a good look at Camp David there’d be a revolution in this country,” Stern said. “That presidents should not be treated like kings and shouldn’t have retreats.”
“They should be in the Oval Office working. What is this Camp David and what is going on over there and who the Hell is paying the bills?” he wondered.
“We cannot treat our presidents like kings,” Stern said. “I always say the greatest presidents were George Washington, because they said, ‘Do you want to be king? And he goes, ‘Are you jackasses? We just fought a whole war over this, you’re going to make me the king?'”
“Do you think Trump wants to be king?” Cooper asked.
“I think Trump would love to be king,” Stern replied. “Then it might be fun, you know, ‘Off with their head.'”
“You think he has those tendencies?
“Of course he does,” Stern replied. “We all know Donald, he would love to rule the land with an iron fist.”
The Secretary of Defense was briefed on Russian bounty on American soldiers — proving it isn’t the hoax Trump said it was
Last week, President Donald Trump finally heard the news that the Russian government was giving cash to Afghanistan's Taliban forces to murder American soldiers.
Initially, he began with Step one in the Trump list of processing a scandal: denial.
"Nobody briefed or told me, @VP Pence, or Chief of Staff @MarkMeadows about the so-called attacks on our troops in Afghanistan by Russians, as reported through an "anonymous source" by the Fake News @nytimes. Everybody is denying it & there have not been many attacks on us. Nobody's been tougher on Russia than the Trump Administration. With Corrupt Joe Biden & Obama, Russia had a field day, taking over important parts of Ukraine - Where's Hunter? Probably just another phony Times hit job, just like their failed Russia Hoax. Who is their 'source'?" tweeted Trump on June 28.
Trump is a friendless ‘psychopath’ who now sees Kavanaugh and Gorsuch as enemies: Art of the Deal ghostwriter
Brett Kavanaugh and Neil Gorsuch, who were nominated by Donald Trump, voted with the majority on Thursday against the president. Tony Schwartz, the ghostwriter behind “Trump: The Art of the Deal,” says that the president now views the two Supreme Court justices as his enemies.
“The psychopathy is why he does what he does,” Schwartz told CNN. “He has no conscience and so breaking the law for him is no big deal.”
The Supreme Court rejected claims by Trump's attorneys that the president enjoyed absolute immunity, but the rulings may still allow him to keep his financial records secret until after the November election.
‘All nine justices’ rejected Trump’s claim of absolute immunity: CNN’s Toobin
On Thursday, following the Supreme Court's 7-2 ruling that President Donald Trump's taxes are not immune from the Manhattan criminal investigation, CNN chief legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin broke down the implications of the decision.
"All nine justices reject the position put forth by the president's lawyers in this case," said Toobin. "All nine justices say that the president does not have absolute immunity from a subpoena, and all nine agree that the case has to go back to district court."
"This is a legal defeat for the president, but it may be a practical victory," added Toobin. "The idea that the president can't be subpoenaed is completely rejected but the Supreme Court, and that even the two dissenting justices agree on ... the practical victory for the president is that the legal proceedings will continue. It seems unlikely, given this opinion, that the president will ultimately be able to stop the disclosure of these events to the grand jury in Manhattan, but it's going to take time. I mean, this process will begin again. The district court will get briefings. They may hear evidence. That will be appealed to the Second Circuit Court of Appeals, and then losing party will likely go back to the Supreme Court. All of this will take a while."
