Stern frequently hosted Mr Trump on his radio program when he was a reality television star, when they would talk about the future president’s sex life and celebrities. Stern, who says he is not an “insider” with Mr Trump, nevertheless acknowledges that he had a personal relationship with Mr Trump and considered him a friend.
“I was watching the news. They said that the president calls his friends and asks advice,” Stern said on his SiriusXM radio show after a discussion of adult film actress Stormy Daniels’ allegations that she had an affair with Mr Trump that the president’s team later tried to cover up just before the 2016 election.
“He’s never once called me and asked for advice,” Stern continued. “Which kind of got me a little upset”.
When Stern’s co-host Robin Quivers suggested that the president might not expect good advice from Stern, the famous radio host agreed.
“Yeah, probably not,” he said. My advice would be, like, get the f*** out of there man. Just give it over to [Vice President Mike] Pence — let him do his thing.”
Stern has previously predicted that the White House might not be the greatest fit for Mr Trump — who enjoyed a private life of luxury and fame before running for president in 2016.
“Seventy-year-old guy who has made so much money — he’s made billions of dollars — that he has his own helicopter, he has his own airplane. He has a hot wife. He’s got fame from a No 1 television show,” Stern said last May. “He can walk around Mar-a-Lago, which is like any palace — better than the f******White House.”
“And then when he went out on the campaign trail, and he started to win, it was like, 'Oh my God, I’m going to be president, and all these crowds love me, and it’s going to be fun,'” Stern continued. “No f****** idea the sh**** life he was gonna have.“
