Radio legend Howard Stern turned fortune teller on Monday, predicting that Donald Trump will be the next Republican presidential nominee.
Stern’s reasoning for the prediction is simple. Voters “like the idea of a successful businessman running the country who might actually be able to get s— done,” he told his listeners.
“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,” the SiriusXM radio host said.
But Stern also predicted the road won’t be easy for Trump, especially if he makes it all the way to the Oval Office.
“But the problem with it is, and Donald Trump will find this: being the president isn’t like being the president of a corporation,” Stern told long-time co-host Robin Quivers. “You still got to go through Congress for everything you want to do. And that’s the tough part. You’ve got to be one who can consolidate on both sides of the aisle, some sort of coalition. And it’s very difficult.”
Stern acknowledged comparisons being made between Trump and President Ronald Reagan. “He was a B-list movie star who became a very successful president. And so they’re looking back to those days and going, ‘Hey, maybe that’s the answer.’”
The New Yorkers have had a relationship for years, and Trump has been a frequent guest on Stern’s show. Stern said it will ultimately be Trump’s strong non-politically correct, anti-establishment stance that will win the billionaire the nomination.
Stern said voters “hate illegal immigrants but 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.”
“Forget all these politicians who are professionals,” Stern said of Trump supporters. “We want to try somebody who is used to a business kind of thing.”
