Photo: Michael Vadon “I’ll tell you why I think he’s going to be the nominee: He’s proven that no matter what he says, people dig him,” the SiriusXM radio host told listeners on Monday. Voters, Stern continued, are of the mindset that “they hate illegal immigrants but they just feel funny saying it — whether it’s rational or not — ‘Is the illegal immigrant draining your economy?’ Possibly. ‘Is he taking away your job?’ Possibly.” “I think more or less, people are super tired of politicians, meaning that they like the idea of a successful businessman running the country who might actually be able to get s— done,” the veteran broadcaster said. Trump has been a frequent guest on Stern’s show over the years… Howard is desperate to be in any conversation about anything.
