Trump Jr - who has come across Stern since the radio host has been critical of his father's slow response to the pandemic and his polarizing comments after the George Floyd murder and subsequent protests. Stern, in turn, rejected the fact that Junior was given everything by his famous father and that he alone did not perform any noteworthy services. Then Trump Jr retweeted the clip of the performance.
The clip was first posted by filmmaker Tariq Nasheed and was interspersed with Stern's recent appearance in The View, where he claimed during the appearance that he had never used the racial fraud. In the clip, Stern reportedly played the role of Ted Danson, while Stern's longtime buddy Robin Quivers played Whoopi Goldberg, Danson's girlfriend at the time. It was picked up by the intrepid pro-Trump New York Post newspaper.
Stern went into retroactive controversy on his show this morning. He expressed regret that he had mocked Goldberg and Danson's decision to dress in black for a roast at Friar's Club, but said he had evolved. He didn't blame the Trumps.
"The shit I did was fucking crazy," said Stern. "I'll be the first to admit. I won't go back and watch those old shows. So who is this guy? But that was my shtick, I did and I own it. I don't think that I was hugged by Nazi groups and hate groups. They seemed to think I was against them too. Everyone had a bone to pick with me.
"There was something in me, a drive that you would not believe. As a young man I wanted to be successful on the radio and go crazy. It cost me a lot emotionally. The FCC was after me, the right wing was after me "I was behind the Ku Klux Klan and threatened my life. All kinds of crazy stories. I was able to make 17 films in my life how crazy it was. I was fined several million dollars by the federal government for sex. Not for races because when you talked about races they never cared about it. Look, that was the show. I went into therapy and said what is it? Do I always have to be the guy pulling my pants off? Can I have one Finding a way to do the show where I can be a lot happier? Over the years I've changed the show. A lot of people who liked that humor where I took off my pants are mad at me now. You think , I am sold out and don't do a good show anymore. I became soft. In therapy, I realized that I can't be completely crazy 24 hours a day when I am with my children and have a successful marriage. I have to find a better way to communicate. So I developed and changed.
"The big headline is this, and that's my fear in all of that," Stern continued. “I was able to change my approach, change my life and change my communication. If I had to do it again, would I mock Ted Danson, a white man with a black face? Yes, I mocked him and said I'm going to throw a light on it. But would I do the same now? Probably not. Not likely, I wouldn't. At the same time, I will say that I am concerned that Donald Trump Jr. and Donald himself do not go into psychotherapy and change. Why not change the way you approach things because wearing a mask is not a bad thing. It's okay to let people know the actual size of the crowd when you take office. Attacking me during the Corona Virus and Black Lives Matter is absolutely crazy and focuses on me. Would you like to focus on me and harass and expose me with all the TV shows that I have made? They are all out there. There is nothing new here. We all know. I was the craziest mother on the radio. There will never be a crazier show than mine. There will never be a show that was as crazy as my show. So crazy, I think I would have been crazy. A psychiatrist says I craved too much attention. Maybe I could knock it down by 20% and still live my life and have an audience. Which was correct. There it is. I am not a hater. I look forward to being on the radio, as most of those who listen to the radio know. I appreciate gay rights and I tell you not to beat up gay people. I'm excited to see the changes that come from Black Lives Matter. To see how [George Floyd] suffocates, as I said, is disgusting and appalling, and I think real change could be in the air. It has nothing to do with me; It is these people who take to the streets and say we have enough. I'm looking forward to real changes ... I'm looking forward to the changes I've made to my approach to radio. But Jesus Christ, anyone who wants ... I would suggest that the people who are listening now have heard my shows for the past 40 years.
"I never go back and look at the stuff," said Stern. "I startle when I look at myself 30 or 40 years ago, and that was 27 years ago, I go, I can't stand it. Am I a bad guy? I don't think so. Donald Trump didn't believe that, he was 27 Time on my show. Donnie Junior did the show. On TV he said I was really disappointed with Howard, he changed that I went to Hollywood. Which one is it? Should I go black and make fun of Ted Danson I've changed. You give television broadcasts to the press. I remember how much Donald Jr. wanted to take a picture with me.
"Dude, if you're the President of the United States and want to worry about me, keep going," said Stern. "I don't think I have much influence to be honest. And the latest news: Howard Stern was absolutely crazy and crazy. I would take anything and say anything and do anything. All old shows prove it. I heard a rumor that she did working on getting the film Private Parts out. I own everything I did. I never did it behind the scenes, I did it right in front of your face. Always. Trying to make a point, sometimes, sometimes not. If you solve the pandemic, we can check all my old shows. I paid a fortune to fix it, it's not easy. I would do anything. By the way, if you dig more, you would find that I did has been fired from a lot of radio stations for many different reasons. "
Long-time radio partner Robin Quivers said: “I have been a supporter of freedom of speech for a long time and I vowed a long time ago that a word would never keep me out of a room. I don't care about that word, I don't care about being called Uncle Tom because I know who I am and what I stand for. I have shown all the time that it has nothing to do with you. It might mean something about the people who played with it, but it didn't mean anything about you and it didn't mean anything about you. "
I have heard Stern since he was in New York for the first time in the 1980s, and he has certainly evolved from the moment he described it when everything was possible. And you can feel the impact of his psychotherapy sessions in the long interviews he does with artists. A bit of humor on the SiriusXM show still crosses the line, but he's long been a voice for inclusion and for women's rights and the GLBTQ thing.
Not that all corners and edges have disappeared since he came to SiriusXM. For a long time, the show ran an interstitial clip of a section in which a racist white man, a frequent caller to the show, recorded a paid phone sex call. The worker, who was clearly African American, tried to do her job and didn't flinch when this cretin called her any derogatory racial insult he could imagine, and you imagine this woman was here, maybe with children at home who had endured this outrage to make a living. And then Stern would go on the air again and do those enlightened interviews with Rosie O'Donnell, Dave Chappelle or Whoopi Goldberg or Chris Rock, and I never understood why Stern or one of his producers would think for a moment that this interstitial would ever was funny. I haven't heard that in a long time, so the show may evolve. This growing feud between Stern and the Trumps will certainly continue to develop as the election season progresses. But sure, Stern won't die of embarrassment at the retroactive shame trick.
