Donald Trump won the 2016 election in large part based on his promise to appoint conservative Supreme Court justices.
Trump made good on that by nominating Brett Kavanaugh and Neil Gorsuch.
But you won’t believe who claimed Donald Trump promised them a seat on the Supreme Court.
Radio shock jock Howard Stern is out promoting his new book.
As part of his publicity tour, Stern sat for an interview with fake news reporter Anderson Cooper.
Stern claimed that Trump wanted him to endorse Trump at the 2016 Republican National Convention since Trump would regularly appear on Stern’s show in the 1990s and 2000s.
Stern considered the offer and told CNN he thought if he showed up at the Republican Convention and endorsed Trump that he could get a seat on the Supreme Court.
The Daily Caller reports:
Radio host Howard Stern said Thursday on CNN that he believes President Donald Trump would have offered him a seat on the Supreme Court, had he endorsed him as a candidate.
“He used to call me from the campaign trail and I think he was really desirous of my endorsement because A) I have a big audience and B) he’s familiar with that audience and I think it would have been very comforting to him if I had gotten on board. So when he secured the nomination and now he was thinking about the convention, I think he wanted some show biz there. He picked up the phone and called me personally,” Stern stated.
The radio host continued, “He asked me if I would go to the Republican convention and endorse him and I was like oh, gosh. For about a split second, I thought, could you imagine if I was all in. I would be the head of the FCC. I could be on the Supreme Court. I think Donald would give me anything I asked.”
This is ludicrous and wishful thinking on Stern’s part.
He never would have gotten within ten miles of the short list for a Supreme Court seat.
But he knows that by making outlandish claims such as this it will generate headlines and help him sell books.
