Radio icon Howard Stern said last week’s Supreme Court decision overturning Roe against Wade makes it more likely he will run for president in 2024.
Stern, a longtime proponent of abortion rights, said he would only set out to accomplish two things.
“The problem with most presidents is that they have too much of a schedule,” he said on his SiriusXM radio show Monday, according to The Hill. “The only goal I would have is to make the country fair again.”
He called out Donald Trump’s three Supreme Court justices for lying about accepting legal precedent during their confirmation hearings.
“It’s very difficult to have a Supreme Court that lies openly,” he said, adding that it “undermines everything.”
He said the three were taken to court by Trump, who lost the popular vote in the 2016 election by nearly 3 million votes.
“A guy who lost the vote won the election,” he said. “How long can we continue to elect people who have lost elections?”
As a result, Stern vowed to end the Electoral College.
“I’m going to do the very simple thing that will get the country back on track: one vote, one person,” he said. “No more electoral college. I’m getting rid of it.”
But he also promised more immediate action to fix the Supreme Court.
“The other thing is if I run for president, and I don’t mess around, I really think about it, because the only other thing I’m going to do is appoint five more justices to the Supreme Court,” he said. said Stern. said.
Stern also said last year that he considered running for president, but only if Donald Trump was the Republican nominee.
“I’m going to kick his ass,” he swore.
Stern briefly toyed with the New York gubernatorial bid in the 1990s as a libertarian, but abandoned financial disclosure rules.
