Howard Stern: 'I am all in on Joe Biden'

Howard Stern announced Monday he's "all in on Joe BidenJoe BidenHouse Democrats pass sweeping .9T COVID-19 relief bill with minimum wage hike Biden to hold virtual bilateral meeting with Mexican president More than 300 charged in connection to Capitol riot MORE," saying President TrumpDonald TrumpBiden to hold virtual bilateral meeting with Mexican president More than 300 charged in connection to Capitol riot Trump Jr.: There are 'plenty' of GOP incumbents who should be challenged MORE "could have been ahead of this curve" on the coronavirus pandemic. 

Stern made his endorsement on his SiriusXM radio show after a Trump supporter defended the president's Thursday remarks regarding using disinfectant or ultraviolet light to combat the coronavirus, which Trump tried to walk back on Friday as being "sarcastic." 

"What's it going to take? I don't get it," Stern said of the president's comments. "I don't think there is anyone left who will vote for him." 


"I am all in on Joe Biden," he later added. "You see the wall that's right next to you, I'll vote for the wall over a guy who tells me that I should pour Clorox into my mouth. Listen, I think we are in deep shit. I think we could have been ahead of this curve."

Stern suggested a massive rally for Trump supporters where they can ingest disinfectant and "all drop dead."

Stern has repeatedly hit Trump over his response to COVID-19, including late last month for bragging about the TV ratings of his White House coronavirus press briefings.

Biden, whose campaign has been largely sidelined due to the pandemic but who has been doing interviews from his home in Wilmington, Del., has not been interviewed by Stern. The former vice president has done several late-night interviews in recent weeks, including with NBC's Jimmy Fallon, CBS's James Corden and ABC's Jimmy KimmelJames (Jimmy) Christian KimmelJimmy Kimmel, Trevor Noah mock Ted Cruz's Cancun trip Katy Perry on inaugural performance: 'I was just singing because I was hopeful' Scorned and mistreated, Melania Trump deserved much better from the media MORE
