Howard Stern on his infamous Trump interviews: ‘There was no filter’

Radio legend Howard Stern opened up about his infamous interviews with Donald Trump in a revealing sit-down with “Good Morning America” co-anchor George Stephanopoulos.

Stern is making the media rounds to promote his new book, “Howard Stern Comes Again,” which frequently delves into his interviews and relationship with the president.

AARON RODGERS’ ‘GAME OF THRONES’ CAMEO IN PENULTIMATE EPISODE CAUSES SOCIAL MEDIA FRENZY

Stern interviewed Trump dozens of times on his radio program over the years, telling Stephanopoulos Trump “was a big character on my show.”

“Donald Trump, hands down, whenever you put him on the air, now, this is before he was running for president, he was an open book,” Stern said. “He would say anything. And you know, oddly enough — during the campaign and even now, people quote these interviews that I did with him.”

Stern said he believes it is “unfair” that some in the media have taken Trump’s quotes from The Howard Stern Show out of context.

He pointed to the outrage over Trump’s remark in a 1997 interview about dating in the 1980s being “his personal Vietnam.”

“It was in a very joking scenario. He was not comparing his life to a Vietnam vet. It was ‘Ha-ha-ha and this and that,'” Stern said. “When journalists took it and made it serious, I thought it was a little bit unfair.”

He added that when Trump appeared on this show, “there was no filter.”

Stephanopoulos asked Stern if he believes he helped get Trump elected, to which the self-described king of all media replied, “Absolutely.”

“The way I helped Donald was I let him come on and be a personality. Whether you liked him or not, people related to him as a human being,” Stern said, adding that he wishes he had been able to do the same for his 2016 presidential pick, Hillary Clinton.

“I thought that perhaps if she came on my show, we could’ve stripped away some of the pomp and circumstance or the tightness that comes with running for president and, like Donald, she could’ve been seen in a different light.”

BBC’s Danny Baker on comparing royal baby Archie to a chimp: ‘I f–ked up. Badly’

Shamed British broadcaster Danny Baker whined Friday about having “the worst days of my life” after getting fired for comparing new royal baby Archie to a chimp.

The 61-year-old’s tweet of the ape in smart clothes with the caption “Royal baby leaves hospital” sparked outrage because of the clear racist undertones, with Duchess of Sussex Meghan, 37, being mixed-race.

The celebrity radio and TV host was swiftly booted by the BBC on Thursday — then griped at length about his misfortune on Friday.

In a tweetstorm supposedly offering apologies — admitting, “I f–ked up. Badly.” — the radio star’s tone suggested he still felt wronged, complaining of how he was “paying the price” for an innocent but “regrettable blunder.”

“Following one of the worst days of my life I just want to formally apologize for the outrage I caused and explain how I got myself into this mess,” Baker started his tweets. “I chose the wrong photo to illustrate a joke. Disastrously so.”

Insisting he just wanted to “lampoon privilege,” he claims he only realized the racial connotations when followers almost instantly pointed out that newborn royal Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor was mixed-race.

“Waves of panic and revulsion washed over me. F–k, what had I done?” he wrote, admitting that “the centuries slurs equating simians and people of color” was “racism at it’s basest.”

“I am aware black people do not need a white man to tell them this. Deleting it immediately and apologizing for the awful gaffe I even foolishly tried to make light of it,” he wrote, clarifying, “My situation that is, not the racism involved.”

“Too late and here I am,” he complained.

He insisted he understands “all of the clamor and opprobrium” he received, claiming, “I am not feeling sorry for myself. I f–ked up. Badly.”

Still, he ended the tweets by saying, “I am now paying the price for this crass & regrettable blunder and rightly so. Probably even this final word from me will extend the mania. (‘Dog whistle’ anyone?)”

AOC hits The Economist for linking celibacy to ‘female empowerment’

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6029130941001_6029136886001-vs AOC hits The Economist for linking celibacy to 'female empowerment' Frank Miles fox-news/politics/house-of-representatives/democrats fox-news/person/alexandria-ocasio-cortez fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/politics fnc article 8005ea42-7dc3-5b6a-a670-5c3a2a233cd8

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., hit back Sunday at a magazine questioning the rise of a new wave of celibacy.

The Economist tweeted earlier in the day: “America is seeing a spike in celibacy [fueled] by economics, technology and female empowerment.”

The tweet linked to a story published last week, entitled: “No sex please, we’re millennials.”

The outspoken freshman congresswoman replied: “If you think your ‘celibacy’ is due to “female empowerment,” maybe it’s because far too many people relied on the disempowerment + silence of women to not be ‘celibate’ in the first place.”

The Economist didn’t respond to Fox News’ request for comment.

The #MeToo movement is empowering victims of sexual assault and harassment to speak up like never before, a watershed moment for holding assailants accountable.

The article aimed to figure out why “young people in America—as in Japan and some other rich countries—are having much less sex.”

It reported that the percentage of American between the ages of 18 and 29 who said they had not had sex in a year more than doubled over the last decade, reaching 23 percent last year.

Gowdy: ‘Saint James’ Comey thinks he ‘gets to write the moral script’

Westlake Legal Group James-Comey-AP Gowdy: 'Saint James' Comey thinks he 'gets to write the moral script' fox-news/topic/fox-news-flash fox-news/person/james-comey fox-news/news-events/russia-investigation fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/politics fnc e9f15a42-f8b0-5baf-a82e-c091ed94280b Charles Creitz article

Former Rep. Trey Gowdy reacted Friday to former FBI Director James Comey’s appearance at a CNN town hall this week, saying that Comey believes he always “gets to write the moral script.”

“Saint James Comey,” Gowdy, R-S.C., said on “Hannity,” gave “pretty much the same as any other interview. He is always right. He gets to write the moral script.”

During the town hall, Comey said that people like outgoing Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein are not of “strong character.”

“I think people like that, like Rod Rosenstein, who are people of accomplishment but not real sterling character, strong character, find themselves trapped. And then they start telling themselves a story to justify their being trapped which is, ‘Yeah, he’s awful but the country needs me,’” Comey told host Anderson Cooper.

JAMES COMEY BLASTS ROD ROSENSTEIN, MOCKS DEPARTYIN DEPUTY AG FOR THINKING ‘THE COUNTRY NEEDS ME’

During the event, Comey also told Cooper that he tried to avoid becoming like Rosenstein and other “co-opted” members of the administration by openly disagreeing with President Trump in the Oval Office.

Gowdy told host Jason Chaffetz that Comey seemingly believes he is correct, and “everybody else is wrong.”

“When I asked Jim Comey how did the Russia investigation get started, who started it, he didn’t know it was Peter Strzok, he never read the initiation document,” Gowdy said. “Comey refuses to believe that any of these decisions should be looked at, so he is always right.”

“He and [former Director of National Intelligence James] Clapper and [former CIA Director John] Brennan are validating the concerns that other people including the president have had about their objectivity by their comments and their demeanor after they left their offices,” Gowdy added.

CONCHA: SOME PRESS COVERING TRUMP’S LEAKED TAX RETURNS SHOWING ‘THE WORST KIND OF BIAS’

Gowdy said that if Comey had not been fired, he would still be “working for an administration he thinks is too good for impeachment.”

Chaffetz said that although he’s been critical of Rosenstein and his tenure, he found Comey’s comments inappropriate.

Gowdy added that Comey exhibited “moral arrogance” with the comments.

Don Lemon accuses Trump of trying to ‘rewrite inconvenient facts’ while defending son

CNN host Don Lemon accused President Trump on Thursday of trying to re-write history in order to defend his son after the Senate Intelligence Committee subpoenaed him as part of the ongoing Russia investigation.

“This is all about revisionist history, keep that in mind, the President trying to rewrite inconvenient facts,” Lemon said before playing a clip of Trump defending his son.

Trump, on Thursday, told reporters he was “surprised” by the committee’s subpoena and that Special Counsel Robert Mueller “exonerated” his son in the investigation.

“My son is a good person. He testified for hours and hours. My son was totally exonerated by Mueller who doesn’t like Trump, me,” Trump said.

According to Lemon, that was incorrect. “This is the fact: Donald Trump Jr. was not exonerated by Robert Mueller,” Lemon said. He went on to cite Mueller’s report which said it would be difficult for the government to prove “beyond a reasonable doubt” that Trump Jr. knew his conduct was unlawful during the controversial meeting at Trump Tower.

CNN’S DON LEMON AGREES US FACES ‘CONSTITUTIONAL CRISIS,’ VIEWS TRUMP IMPEACHMENT AS ‘REMEDY’

He also disputed Trump’s assertion that Mueller said there was “essentially no obstruction” on the president’s part.

Mueller’s report, as Lemon noted, stopped short of concluding that Trump obstructed justice but also indicated that Congress would have enough evidence to warrant continued investigation.

“If we had confidence after a thorough investigation of the facts that the President clearly did not commit obstruction of justice, we would so state,” the report read.

“Based on the facts and the applicable legal standards, however, we are unable to reach that judgment.”

Lemon also criticized Attorney General WIlliam Barr, arguing that he misrepresented the Mueller report findings when he released his own summary of it in March.

He was referring to the fact that Mueller told the Justice Department he took issue with the way Barr presented the findings. Mueller also clarified, however, that he didn’t mean to say that Barr’s summary was “inaccurate.”

Ben Shapiro says BBC host destroyed him, apologizes: ‘Broke my own rule… wasn’t properly prepared’

Ben Shapiro admitted on Friday he wasn’t prepared for a recent interview with BBC host Andrew Neil that resulted in the conservative star abruptly ending the segment.

“[Andrew Neil] DESTROYS Ben Shapiro! So that’s what that feels like 😉 Broke my own rule, and wasn’t properly prepared. I’ve addressed every single issue he raised before; see below. Still, it’s Neil 1, Shapiro 0,” Shapiro tweeted with a link to a Daily Wire article he penned detailing “all the dumb stuff” he’s ever done.

Shapiro appeared on the BBC to talk about his new book “The Right Side of History: How Reason and Moral Purpose Made the West Great.” However, things didn’t go as planned when Neil — who often plays devil’s advocate with his guests — pressed on old comments Shapiro had made.

JAMES COMEY CAN’T DIG STRUGGLING CNN OUT OF RATINGS BASEMENT

Shortly after exchanging the pleasantries, Neil went on offense and drilled down on Shapiro’s views, asking the commentator whether the recent pro-life bill in Georgia is like bringing back the “Dark Ages” in the U.S.

Shapiro retaliated against Neil, a former editor of the Sunday Times and a chairman of a media group that includes right-leaning magazine The Spectator, and accused him of harboring left-wing views.

“You purport to be an objective journalist, BBC purports to be an objective, down the middle network,” Shapiro snapped. “It obviously is not, it never has been. And you as a journalist are proceeding to call one side of the political aisle ignorant, barbaric, and sending us back to the dark ages, why don’t you just say you’re on the left.”

“Mr. Shapiro, if you only knew how ridiculous that statement is you wouldn’t have said it,” Neil replied and went on to question Shapiro about comments he has made previously on abortion and transgender rights, as well as his remarks questioning the Jewishness of those voting for President Barack Obama — topics Shapiro addressed in his list of mistakes.

MAINSTREAM MEDIA FEARS TRUMP MIGHT NOT LEAVE OFFICE IF HE LOSES IN 2020

Soon before the interview was put to a halt, Shapiro said Neil tried to go through and find “lone things that sound bad out of context” as a way to make “a quick buck on BBC off the fact that I’m popular and no one has ever heard of you.”

“This whole thing is a waste of time. Frankly, I don’t care — I don’t frankly give a damn what you think of me since I’ve never heard of you,” he added. “I think we’re done here.”

Shapiro later admitted that his attack on Neil was misdirected, tweeting that “As I’m not familiar with him or his work, I misinterpreted his antagonism as political Leftism (he termed the pro-life position in America ‘barbaric’) – and that was apparently inaccurate. For that, I apologize.”

Once the interview aired on Friday, Shapiro admitted he wasn’t prepared and that he was losing to the BBC host.

CNN continued its ratings struggle on Thursday night when the heavily promoted town hall event with former FBI director James Comey failed to help the network’s ongoing viewership issues.

CNN averaged 1.6 million total viewers during the Comey event from 8-9:15 p.m. ET, compared to Fox News’  2.9 million viewers and 1.8 million for MSNBC during the same time period, according to early Nielsen data.

While Comey’s event finished dead last among major cable news networks among total viewers, it managed to double CNN’s dismal prime-time average during the month of April. CNN averaged only 767,000 prime-time viewers last month, behind 14 basic cable networks including Food Network, TLC and the Discovery Channel, while Fox News averaged 2.4 million viewers to top all of basic cable during the same period with MSNBC No. 2, according to TVNewser.

MAINSTREAM MEDIA FEARS TRUMP MIGHT NOT LEAVE OFFICE IF HE LOSES IN 2020

Thursday’s event marked the second time that CNN has aired a Comey town hall since he was fired from his gig running the FBI. The recent event came only one day after the two-year anniversary of his dismissal by President Trump.

Comey couldn’t dig CNN out of last place during the town hall, but he didn’t make for much of a lead-in, either. During the prime-time hours of 8-11 p.m., CNN averaged 1.4 million viewers compared to 2.9 million for Fox News and 2.1 million for MSNBC.

CNN also finished dead last among the key demographic of adults ages 25-54, averaging 302,000 demo viewers, while FNC averaged 459,000 and MSNBC averaged 351,000 during prime time on Thursday. CNN did, however, narrowly edge MSNBC among the demo from during the town hall from 8-9:15 p.m. ET but returned to last place in the category for the remainder of the evening.

RATINGS-CHALLENGED CNN SHEDS STAFF AS NETWORK MOVES INTO LAVISH NEW DIGS

Anderson Cooper, who moderated the Comey event, was forced to inform CNN viewers about Peter Strzok and Lisa Page and Andrew McCabe. The need for such an explainer was mocked by Media Research Center analyst Nicholas Fondacaro.

“[CNN] wouldn’t have to give viewers this speedy crash course on who Peter Strzok and Lisa Page are, or Andrew McCabe’s misdeeds, if @CNN had actually covered them in any kind of serious manner,” Fondacaro tweeted.

Earlier this week, the audience for a Fox News town hall with Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., was 85 percent larger among total viewers than Klobuchar’s April 22 town hall on CNN.

Meanwhile, at the ratings-challenged CNN, more than 100 employees accepted a voluntary buyout; the company aims to pare its headcount as it moves into a luxurious new headquarters in the Hudson Yards area on the West Side of Manhattan.

Behar mocks Trump talking about his son: ‘As if he’s a real father’

Westlake Legal Group behar-mocks-trump-talking-about-his-son-as-if-hes-a-real-father Behar mocks Trump talking about his son: 'As if he's a real father' Sam Dorman fox-news/person/joy-behar fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/entertainment/the-view fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/entertainment fnc fb01472d-52c8-5d81-9dc8-a94e722622b6 article

“The View” host Joy Behar has seemingly taken a deeply personal shot at President Trump, suggesting that he didn’t act like a “real father” towards his son Donald Trump Jr.

“Yesterday, Trump held a press conference about ‘whatever’ and he talked about his son Don Jr. getting subpoenaed by a Republican-led Senate Intelligence Committee,” Behar said, teeing up a clip from Trump.

“And he actually sounds like he cares about someone other than himself in this clip,” she added.

Trump defended his son, saying that he was a “good person” and “totally exonerated” by special counsel Robert Mueller.

CHER SLAMS DONALD TRUMP JR., IVANKA TRUMP AS ‘NOT WORTH A DAMN’ IN FIERY TWEET

“The View” host Joy Behar has seemingly taken a deeply personal shot at President Trump, suggesting that he didn’t act like a “real father” towards his son Donald Trump Jr.

“My son testified for hours and hours. My son was totally exonerated by Mueller,” Trump said. Behar followed the clip by mocking Trump for acting like he were a real father.

“‘My son, my son,’ he kept saying; like as if he’s a real father,” she commented. “It was so touching,” Behar added sarcastically before the co-hosts discussed Trump Jr.’s subpoena as part of the Russia investigation.

It’s unclear whether Trump Jr. will comply with a subpoena but Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., has already indicated he and his father didn’t have anything to worry about it.

Guest host Tara Setmayer also took a few shots at Trump Jr., suggesting that his father was “stuck” with him and that, according to Mueller, he was “too stupid to be able to conspire with the Russians.”

She also seemed to deride the idea that Trump Jr. didn’t tell his father about the infamous meeting at Trump Tower with a Russian attorney during the 2016 election cycle.

“The Russians were very involved, the Trump campaign was willing to take that stolen information,” she said, summarizing Mueller’s findings. “And Don Jr., Mr. ‘I love it’ when he found out emails that they might have Hillary Clinton dirt, all of this brings into question: How much did Donald Trump know?”

She continued by suggesting Trump Jr. was child-like in his attachment to his father. “Does anyone really believe that Don Jr., who can’t go to the bathroom without telling his dad, [that he] didn’t tell his father?”
