Did Howard Stern create Donald Trump? The question's not as outlandish as you might think.
Before you say anything, I know. I know. I know that Howard Stern isn't a jerk anymore (if he ever was one). I know that a lot of people who currently listen to his show aren't political Neanderthals. I know that he's probably going to vote for Hillary Clinton in November (but then most people are, if you can believe the latest polls like this one.)
By there's Howard Stern, the man, and Howard Stern, the style -- the style that he also invented in the 1980s and early 1990s. Politically incorrect to the max. The non-stop feuding. The sense of not knowing what outrageous thing he might say next. The sheer entertainment, and the sacrifice of sacred cows. Did Howard Stern, unwittingly, start the chain reaction that created a monster named Donald Trump.
I kinda think so. Read my op-ed how Stern created Trump. Whether he wanted to or not.
