The Trump comments follow an earlier attack by comedian and talk show host Bill Maher, who made comments about Stern’s second marriage to Beth Ostrosky. Stern responded by breaking ties with Maher.
Today on Truth Social, Trump – a former frequent guest on Stern’s radio show – derided him.
“The real Howard Stern is a weak, pathetic, and disloyal guy, who lost his friends and MUCH of his audience,” Trump wrote on Truth Social.
“I did his show many times in the good old days, and then he went woke, and nobody cares about him any longer,” he said. Stern’s “influence is gone, and without that, he’s got NOTHING,” Trump said, adding, “Just a broken weirdo, unattractive both inside and out, trying like hell to be relevant.”
Stern this week declared on Sirius XM, “I am woke, motherf–ker, and I love it!” He was reacting to a fan’s YouTube lament about his liberal leanings.
“By the way, I kind of take that as a compliment, that I’m woke,” Stern said Monday.“If woke means I can’t get behind Trump, which is what I think it means, or that I support people who want to be transgender or I’m for the vaccine, dude, call me woke as you f–king want.”
