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, who regularly interviewed Trump before he jumped into politics and enjoyed a friendly relationship with the former real estate mogul and reality TV star, endorsed former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary ClintonHillary Diane Rodham ClintonTrump to visit Georgia next week Former NY Rep.

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 KimmelBubba Wallace: Trump tweet 'wrong on the factual information' about noose School board member in New Jersey resigns after blackface pictures resurface Hulu removes 'Golden Girls' mud mask episode, prompting pushback: 'What the hell?'
