Radio show host Howard Stern, who used to call President Donald Trump his friend before the latter’s presidency, has completely lost his mind as he has pledged to run for the presidency in 2024 if Trump does it – and has also vowed to defeat him.

Speaking on his radio show on Tuesday morning, Stern even declared that he was accepting his fate of having to do his “civil duty” of competing against the 45th President of the United States.

Stern may have lost his mind

An unjustifiably overly confident Stern also promised to “beat his a**” – referring to his former friend Trump who he used to frequently invite as a guest on his show.

The radio host insisted further that he features at least as prominently as Trump in the minds of the Americans, and so his potential run for the presidency in 2024 would be a victory for him.

Having apparently gone very bitter with Trump, Stern stated he would debate his former friend by replaying a “clip” in which the former is allegedly “trying to fix the elections”.

The radio host was evidently referring to a phone call demonized by the mainstream media in which POTUS 45 insisted before Georgia’s Secretary of State, Brad Raffensperger, that there was election fraud in his state.

The seemingly he-has-now-gone-insane Stern insisted that “there’s no way I’d lose” in a presidential competition against Donald Trump.

The popular radio host became estranged from Trump during his presidency as he kept criticizing the president on all kinds of counts and policy points.

It was after the begging of the COVID-19 pandemic, in 2020, that Stern completely, viciously, and irreparably turned against the 45th President of the United States.

Back in 2020, he famously declared that he was “absolutely out of “his “f***ing mind” because of the way that President Trump was running the country, and because of what was happening with respect to the spreading of the coronavirus.

Stern’s failed political ambitions in the past

It should be noted that Stern’s comments about going out on a limb and challenging Trump for the White House could be construed as some of his “shock jock routine.”

Yet, he has had some political ambitions in the past.

For instance, back in 1994, Stern entered the race for governor of the state of New York, running as a libertarian.

However, he quit the competition before election day as he became aware that as a candidate for public office, he was supposed to reveal his personal finances.

Trump himself is widely expected to run for president in 2024 but has not declared it officially due to technical and political reasons.

On Monday, he said that only after the 2022 midterm elections is he going to announce his decision officially on whether to run for the White House again
