Howard Stern viciously mocks ‘genius’ Donald Trump Jr. after he defends his father from radio host’s attacks

Trump Jr. finished rebutting Stern by saying he was acting like two-time failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, who infamously referred to Trump supporters as "deplorables."

Howard Stern just spoke out to mock Donald Trump Jr. after he defended his father from the radio host’s vile attacks.

During his show on Tuesday, Stern sarcastically responded to Trump Jr.’s criticisms of him, jokingly referring to him as a “genius.”

“I can’t argue with him, that kid is such a success,” Stern joked, according to the New York Daily News. “He is such a wit, he is such a genius. He would have made a fortune if he wasn’t under his father’s thumb. Game over. You can’t argue with a genius like that.”

“When he shuts you down, that’s it,” Stern continued mockingly. “What an accomplished young man. You can’t argue with that kind of bravery,” Stern said. “Even the guys in Afghanistan right now are going ‘Jesus Christ, what a kid.’”

Trump Jr. had fired back at Stern earlier this month after the radio host attacked the president and his millions of supporters, going so far as to call for them all to “drop dead.” 

Trump Jr. responded by calling Stern’s comments “disappointing.”

“That’s total bull****,” the president’s son said. “The reality is this: My dad was able to do what he did when he won this election by being able to relate to those guys, the blue-collar worker that Donald Trump spent his entire career with.”

“Donald Trump was a better developer and built a brand because he spent time talking to those guys,” he added. “There’s a reason why you see guys within our company, even today, they started off as construction guys, started off as drivers, and they’re like executives because he gave them a chance.”

Not stopping there, Trump Jr. finished rebutting Stern by saying he was acting like two-time failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, who infamously referred to Trump supporters as “deplorables.”

“He’s acting like Hillary, which was, you know, probably what cost her some of the election was calling half the country deplorables for wanting to support someone who’s going to get things done for them, and he did,” Trump Jr. said.

Trump Jr. then ended his rant by completely shutting Stern down. “I don’t know if he just got a taste of Hollywood when he went on, you know, the T.V. show and, all of the sudden, the establishment’s sort of politically correct people that he used to hate, now he really wants to be loved by them,” Trump Jr. concluded. “I imagine that Stern’s trying to, you know, grab some attention. There’s a lot of other people doing sort of, you know, that took his model. I think he was a real innovator years ago, but took his model and are frankly just doing it much better now.”

I don’t know about you, but I’d say that even with Stern’s rebuttal, Trump Jr. won this fight big time!
