Shock-jock radio host Howard Stern sat down with ABC anchor George Stephanopoulos for a Nightline interview that aired in parts on Monday’s Good Morning America. Stephanopoulos was very interested in letting the radio host rant about not “helping” Hillary Clinton win the 2016 election by having her on his show, beforehand.
Stern was there to promote his latest memoir, in which he talks about interviewing President Trump in years past, and why he wish he could’ve had the chance to host Hillary Clinton as well.
Stern began talking about how “unfiltered” Trump was on his show. He also briefly criticized the media for taking old interviews out of context. ‘I was quite surprised when they dragged out every single Donald Trump interview I had done and in some ways I felt it was unfair to Trump,” he admitted.
Stephanopoulos responded to that, “Do you feel in some way that you helped make him president?” Stern thought so.
“Absolutely. Because Donald would come on my show,” he boasted. Stephanopoulos lectured, “Does it make you feel bad or good?”
