If you were half as smart as you pretend to be - or think you are - you'd know that TRUMP has had his eye on the WH for 30 years. Go back and research....it's fairly evident to see.

Is there a point to anything you said in this post?
It is pretty common knowledge (to most people) that most books “written” by celebrities and power figures are on some level ghostwritten. Many times, the person(s) who contributed or even outright wrote such books are acknowledged in the books. Michelle Obama’s book is no exception. Having read her book and several of Trump’s, I know Obama’s book was not entirely her creation/writing, but she wrote most of it as they are actually her written memoirs organized into a book:

Again, what does her book have to do with Trump?

So they never sign off on the book and bio/promo for the book even if ghostwritten to some degree?

I think he's a buffoon but that's just my opinion. And if a Kardashian ran for president in 2024, they'd win. Those ****** are the democrat equivalent of Trump, all style and zero substance.

Anyone who steps away from the "intellectual liberal rules of engagement" is part of the group thinking masses.

Stern signed a contract renewal with Sirius a few years back estimated to be $80 million per year. Oh, and guess who has the best selling book on Amazon at the moment?

The "Stern is over" mantra is truly hilarious. Haters have been claiming that since the 80's.

As far as those who are claiming this is for publicity, or he needs to be shocking to stay relevant, that's off base too. Stern is now widely acknowledged as one of the best interviewers in the business (his collection of outstanding interviews is the subject of his book). The show is still "racey", but its appeal goes well beyond that. The days of his being accurately described as a "shock jock" are way over at this point. If anything, he keeps a lower profile than he would be capable of attaining if he wanted to (although he is out hyping the book now).

Of course, not really knowing much about Stern or his show has never stopped people from having firm opinions about him.

Stern is annoyingly liberal, especially in his support of Hilary (although he is staunchly against gun control, at least). But right or wrong, it is fair to speculate about whether Trump really expected to win when he entered the race. Claiming that he didn't isn't as wild or controversial as some of you are making it out to be.

Stern is a Billionaire and one of the most intelligent people in Hollywood.

He has told this story for years and he knows these people in and out.

Why are people here hating on a guy that talked about a conversation he had with a buddy and his comments on why "the people" selected who they did? I am sure there are some Stern fans here at some point in their life. Stern knows about the "common man". He played the idiots for decades, being a Millionaire in his early career already and playing to masses and the sheep.

Stern also did NOT throw Trump under the bus when they asked for his old tapes. he simply to the media crows to find it, it is out there.

One thing Stern does most times is tell the truth about other people, that is why people fear him. He will be nice to their face after he fries them too. He is the king of ALL media like he says.

LMAO at people being offended a guy they voted in was only half hearted about it.

Remember the recent story about Trump "sitting around all day looking at carpet swatches" and the guy who described him as "a self-absorbed child"? That's not news... unless Trump is gearing up for another campaign.

I LOVE it.

There's not a frickin thing you have ever or will ever say that can hide your anger and irritation with our President DJT. It's gotta suck to know all along that we've recognized your silly game, right?

Yes this will probably harm their long lasting friendship, but I think Stern is wise enough to know that Trump uses people up and that it's best that he doesn't get drawn in to the Trump lying game.

I have never been a stern fan. His shtick is pretty lame and is far too offensive & shallow for my likes. But Stern isnt an idiot and he tells it like it is.

I dont think Stern could GAF about Trump being that Trump has quite a few enemies. Its probably a weight of Stern's shoulders. When you associate yourself with a scumbag like Trump you risk ending up in deep ****. Just ask Manafort, Cohen, Flynn etc etc

Stern isn't a Scumbag?

Stern said in this book that one of the reasons he wrote it was because he was such a Scumbag and an *******, treated people with disrespect and only thought of himself.

I agree, writing is a talent that most people don't have regardless of how well they do in their respective industries. I also believe the general public has a tacit agreement to "look the other way" when a billionaire "writes a book". All Trump had to do is not bring it up. But when people question his intelligence he has said something similar to "I'm a high IQ guy, I've authored 19 books!". He'd do well not to open that can of worms.

Ever notice that almost everything Trump says, particularlly when it comes to responding to critics or opposition, is very adolescent in nature?

Forget about the fact that he is a lawless loose canon who doesnt GAF about the consitutional law and governmental powers. Or when he disagrees with a federal judge who is ruling on law, he simply insults the federal judge and says he should be fired crazy2:

Forget about the fact that he is a cheat in almost everything he does

What is most astounding about Trump is He has no ability to intelligently or even maturely participate in a discussion (and he caters to a base who is as equally as insulting and inflammatory)

Trump is that classic Bad Guy WWWF Wrestler, a clown who can only issue inflammatory remarks as a response to any criticism (with the main difference being Tump isnt acting)

And even on his best day, Trump is that 8 year old who Says "I know You are But what am I"

Thats who we have in the WH right now.
I agree 100%

Do you remember when someone interviewing Trump asked why he called his opponent's wife a "fat pig" and he said "well... they started it"? The interviewer literally looked Trump in the eye and said "that's the response of a 5 yr old" and Trump said "no it's not". I'm not sure I would have believed that if it weren't on video. So embarrassing.

You're statement has nothing to do with my point or this thread.

But let's say that you are correct - which i doubt you are - do you think i care who agrees with me?
