Howard Stern is no stranger to saying controversial things.

Howard rose to fame over thirty years ago for his radio show, The Howard Stern Show, where he was infamous for shock-jock behavior and pushing the limits of what he could and could not say both on the radio and on television.

On a recent episode of his radio show, as reported by The New York Daily News, Howard did not hold back when speaking about President Donald Trump/

When a doctor in Cleveland called into the show to describe the “hell” they were going through during the pandemic, Howard responded with a critique of how Trump has handled the virus.

“This is treasonous, what’s going on right now. Telling peole to run around, go to rallies," Howard commented.

Howard's co-host, Robyn Quivers, replied, "Well, it may not be treasonous, but it certainly is criminal."

"Well, it certainly is," Howard went on.

“You’ve got a guy in charge who doesn’t know about hard work,” Howard added, and then addressed the doctor directly. “They should follow you with a camera every night on the news, watching people die of COVID, watch them choking."

“I wish they’d show that on the news," Howard added.
