Howard Stern says he could run against former President Trump the 2024 election, adding that he’s confident he’ll “beat his ass.”

On Tuesday’s edition of The Howard Stern Show, longtime co-host Robin Quivers told Stern that if Trump decides to run again, Stern has to run against him.

“I know,” Stern swiftly replied. “I’ll beat his ass.” The host added that he told his wife that running against Trump would be his “civic duty.”

Stern quipped that his debate strategy would involve playing the clip of Trump’s January phone call with Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger. In the call, which is currently under criminal investigation, Trump pressures the Raffensperger to “find” more votes in order to overturn the 2020 election.

“I would just sit there and play that f***ing clip of him trying to fix the election over and over again,” Stern said. “There’s no way I’d lose.”

Trump was once a frequent guest on The Howard Stern Show. Clips of him making objectifying remarks towards daughter Ivanka resurfaced during both the 2016 and 2020 elections. In one particular clip, Trump stated that it was perfectly fine to refer to his daughter as a “piece of ass.”

Stern vocally opposed Trump’s 2016 presidential run and endorsed Joe Biden in 2020.

As for Stern’s political experience, the radio icon ran for New York governor against Democrat Mario Cuomo as a Libertarian in 1994. Stern subsequently withdrew several months in, criticizing the financial disclosure requirements of candidates.
