Former close friend of President Trump crossed the line with an attack on Trump supporters that is disgraceful on many levels.
As we remember, Stern, helped Donald Trump in 2016 by not releasing various outtakes and tapes from Trump’s appearances on his show over the years.
It wouldn’t have mattered if he had but it was a solid gesture among friends to not try to help the opposition. However, it appears that those days are gone now.
Stern says he still likes Trump but he hates Trump supporters which if you know how loyal the Trump’s are, those words are basically a declaration of war.
“One thing Donald loves is celebrities, he loves the famous,” Stern said, as Breitbart reported. “He loves it. He loves to be in the mix.”
“The oddity in all of this is the people Trump despises most, love him the most, the people who are voting for Trump, for the most part, he wouldn’t even let them in a f-ing hotel.”
“He’d be disgusted by them. Go to Mar-a-Lago, see if there are any people who look like you. I’m talking to you in the audience.”
“I don’t hate Donald,” he added. “I hate you for voting for him, for not having intelligence.”
Don Trump Jr. had something to say about that, so he didn’t wait long to respond to Stern’s comments.
“That’s total bulls—,” Don Trump Jr. said. “The reality is this: My dad was able to do what he did when he won this election by being able to relate to those guys, the blue-collar worker that Donald Trump spent his entire career with.”
“Donald Trump was a better developer and built a brand because he spent time talking to those guys. There’s a reason why you see guys within our company, even today, they started off as construction guys, started off as drivers, and they’re like executives because he gave them a chance.”
“He’s acting like Hillary, which was, you know, probably what cost her some of the election was calling half the country deplorables for wanting to support someone who’s going to get things done for them, and he did,” he said, pointing to remarks Clinton made months ahead of the 2016 presidential election in which she described “half” of Trump’s base as a “basket of deplorables.”
“I don’t know if he just got a taste of Hollywood when he went on, you know, the T.V. show and, all of the sudden, the establishment’s sort of politically correct people that he used to hate, now he really wants to be loved by them.”
“I imagine that Stern’s trying to, you know, grab some attention. There’s a lot of other people doing sort of, you know, that took his model. I think he was a real innovator years ago, but took his model and are frankly just doing it much better now. So I think he’s just probably trying to grab headlines,” he said.
“There couldn’t be anything further from the truth,” Trump Jr. added in reference to Stern’s comments in the interview. “If you speak with Donald Trump, you talk to him and you sit down with him and talk about sports or whatever it is, you’ll see what I’ve always called him, which is he’s sort of the blue-collar billionaire.”
