The perspective came after Clinton joined Stern's show earlier Wednesday for an interview that featured a considerable amount of critical discussion of Trump.

"Stern [asked Clinton] — this is a little ironic — did [Sen.] Lindsey GrahamLindsey Olin GrahamSenators spar over validity of Trump impeachment trial Trump selects South Carolina lawyer for impeachment trial Democrats formally elect Harrison as new DNC chair MORE sell his soul? The guy I grew up listening to, Howard Stern, to me, would have supported Donald Trump, not Hillary Clinton. And probably wouldn’t be at Hamptons polo matches and parties," Hannity said on his own show while introducing a clip of the Stern-Clinton interview.


“Has he sold his soul to the devil?” Stern asked Clinton rhetorically about the Graham's (R-S.C.) staunch support of the president.

“I don’t know. That’s a fair question, however,” Clinton responded.

“Not sure why Howard hates Trump and loves her,” Hannity said after the clip. “Makes no sense. That’s not the guy I grew up listening to.”

Hannity grew up in the New York City area, where Stern dominated the talk show industry for years on WNBC and later 92.3 K-Rock.

Stern endorsed Clinton leading up to the 2016 election despite many friendly and candid interviews with Trump for years before the former real estate mogul and NBC "Apprentice" star entered politics.
