Mugato: Howard used to have Trump on his show because Trump was more of a pervert than he was. Stern never supported Trump for President and was never a right winger.

'Hollywood Howard'

I see Jr has inherited his dad's knack for throwing out oh-so-clever nicknames for people.


He's even mimicking daddy's 'SAD!' bit.

Which is, well, pretty damn sad.

He's never going to love you, Junior. Your actual father might, though. You should look him up.

HotWingConspiracy: Trump, Jr. tweeted right back, saying that "Hollywood Howard" had turned his back on his blue-collar fan base. As a result, said the president's oldest son, "more people will see this tweet than listen to his show."

So he's bad at math too.

BTW, why are we all still being asked to pretend that he's Trump's biological son?


Howard should start referring to him as "Vince McMahon's kid."

Jefferson, the guy who said Hamilton was a cross-dresser?

Hamilton, the guy who'd write a 60-page broadsheet to call his own mom a biatch if she worked to oppose his political plans?

Franklin, the guy too busy banging French whores to really care what was said about him?

I think Franklin would find it hilarious that he's on the $100, and Jefferson got the $2.

He ran for governor as a Libertarian but that was more a publicity stunt.



Very true, which is why he knew Trump never really wanted to be president. I find myself being more Libertarian these days.

Seconded. I hate his radio show. I hate "radio" Howard. The only season of America's Got Talent that I watched was the one with him on it. He was pleasant and likeable. He plays a character for his radio show. He's actually a cool dude.

That's a shockingly dumb thing to say.

Stern ain't liberal. Stern has fought for free speech for years going all the way back to terrestrial radio. Sterns isn't anti-gun. He's licensed and carries. Stern's audience certainly overlaps DT voters.

Gosh... it's like you tried to find the dumbest thing to say and just dug right in. Good for you... I guess.

To be fair though, "Breathtaking cluelessness" accurately defines the entire Trump presidency, his administration (and the GOP in general), his entire immediate family including his porcelain doll-in-law, and the base that supports the lot of them.  I mean, they voted for Trump because he's "for the working man," even though the only blue collar he's ever had was a present for Ivanka...

Christ, that reminds me of a "bully" I once knew.

My junior high had plenty. I was the protector of some of the kids who were bullied, which made me a target.

We had a guy who drove himself to his junior high graduation, now that was a proper bully. Bigger and stronger enough to be worth the time.

However, then there was Tyler.

Tyler was the triad. Fat, dumb and mean.

Behold a typical exchange:

"Give me your homework so I can copy it."
"Nah, not happening."
"I'll kick your ass."
"Not happening."

I had probably 3 inches of height, 20 pounds of muscle and 60 IQ points on him during this exchange. He tried punching me, and I've been hit harder than that with a massage. I just laughed and walked away.

I'd think Half-Scoop has had the same exact exchange. I wonder how many times he's pulled the "don't you know who my daddy is?" card.
