Howard Stern is ripping the Supreme Court's decision striking down Roe v. Wade, saying the ruling might spur him to launch a White House bid.

"I'm actually going to probably have to run for president now," the SiriusXM host told "Howard Stern Show" listeners on Monday.

The show marked Stern's first public comments about Friday's Supreme Court decision, which overturned the 1973 landmark ruling that had provided a constitutional right to abortion.

Stern, who's long railed against the United States' Electoral College system, said of conservative Supreme Court Justices Amy Coney Barrett, Brett Kavanaugh and Neil Gorsuch: "These appointed judges by [former President] Trump were appointed by a president who lost the popular vote by 3 million votes. This is where we get into trouble."

If he were to run for office, the 68-year-old radio pro said, "I am going to do the very simple thing that'll set the country straight: one vote, one person. No more Electoral College. I'm getting rid of it."

"The problem with most presidents is they have too big of an agenda. The only agenda I would have is to make the country fair again," Stern said.

Stern slammed Justice Clarence Thomas, who joined the 6-3 majority decision, describing him as "sitting there like Darth Vader, dormant [and] waiting for other kooks to join the Supreme Court."

"I'll give you a couple of examples of why this is so horrible," Stern said, as he mentioned "everyday women who go to the doctor and they find out that the baby has horrible birth defects."

"A lot of times women are raped. A lot of times contraception doesn't work. And then there's even a more confusing state where a man and a woman want to have a baby, and all of a sudden things go medically wrong," Stern later told a listener.

"We were past all of this — and we still are. We as a country voted for Hillary Clinton by 3 million votes," Stern, who supported the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee over Trump, exclaimed.

"We voted for Biden because it was repugnant — all this horseshit," Stern continued. "But now for life, we're stuck."

"The other thing is, if I do run for president — and I'm not f—— around, I'm really thinking about it — because the only other thing I'm going to do is appoint five more Supreme Court justices," Stern said.

After co-host Robin Quivers questioned whether Stern could make such a change, he replied with a slight chuckle, "I don't know. I don't know what I'm doing exactly."

"I'm not afraid to do it. As soon as I become president, you're gonna get five new Supreme Court justices that are going to overturn all this bullshit."

Stern has floated a potential presidential run before. Last year, the "Howard Stern Comes Again" author said if he were to run against Trump in 2024, he would "beat his ass." Trump has not confirmed a 2024 bid.

Stern ran as a libertarian in New York's gubernatorial race in 1994, before dropping out after the state's Supreme Court upheld a requirement that he would have to disclose his personal finances as a political candidate.

Enough of this shit - it's time to get serious.  Morgan Freeman for POTUS and Dolly Parton for VP.  Freeman has played POTUS enough to be considered experienced, and who doesn't respect Dolly?

But didn't the earth get hit by a planet-devastating meteor when he played President?

Elect Chris Rock as POTUS and Will Smith as VP.  That way somebody can go up and down the aisle and slap the idiots on both sides.

That wasn't funny. Obama saying "Over the last 15 months we’ve traveled to every corner of the United States. I’ve now been in 57 states; I think one left to go.” 

A Presidential candidate (or any American) thinking there are 57 states is both funny and pathetic.

In addition to the 50 States, there are 8 American Commonwealths and Territories, so although they are not actual States, they are American, and perhaps that's what he meant. 

(Does it really take a Canadian to come up with that?)

He's a very bright man with a somewhat surprising second act as a serious interviewer. 

Is he going to run as a Republican so he can troll Trump?

You think Republicans would support Stern? 

I can't tell if you are trying to be funny or not.

The first words out of his idiotic mouth is that he will do away with the electoral college and pack the Supreme Court. Two things all conservatives and Republicans oppose. 

Stern will run as a far, far, far leftist. Which will be great as the left will worship him while he steals all of their money making them buy material shit they don't need. Bernie and the rest of the hard Democrat left will be in tears as they lose all of their young supporters.

I am sure that Putin could still throat punch Stern; not matter what shape Putin is in. Stern's giraffe neck and massive adam's apple are way to easy of a target to miss.

Trump could at least sell himself as a "successful" businessman to fool Republicans. Stern is a radio shock jock saying stupid things trying to offend everyone. It wouldn't take long for Pelosi and Schumer to turn on him.

Instead of trying to figure out whether I am working on my stand-up routine you could use Google to figure out which party Howard Stern belongs to.

That's what I did and the answer is not clear.

He once ran for Governor of New York State as a Libertarian candidate and he said on his radio show that he probably identifies as a Republican. 

My guess is that he is a registered Independent. It's easy enough for a journalist to get the answer to that question because NYS voter registrations are public information. Anyone can request it. You can request a file of every registered voter in NYS and they will send it to you on a CD.

Howard Stern is ‘probably a Republican,’ which he says has nothing to do with criticizing Trump

After doing a skit that included a phone call from a Trump impersonator, Stern opened up the lines to real SiriusXM listeners. His first caller was a man named “Chucky” who repeatedly tried to make the conversation about Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, a California Democrat has nothing to do with the issue Stern was commenting on. Stern wanted no part of it.

“Chucky listen to me...” Stern said after repeated interruptions. “Nancy Pelosi is not the president.”

Chucky continued pushing some sort of point about Pelosi and Stern stopped him again.

“Forget Pelosi, forget about Cuomo, forget about the Democrats, Forget about the Republicans,” Stern said, trying to stay on topic.

“I’ve got news for you. I’m probably a Republican if you really think about, a lot of my issues that I believe in,” he said. “But the thing that I see in the White House does not resemble anything I ever thought of as Republican and I’ve been around a long time... this is something I don’t recognize.”

Stern ran for governor of New York in 1994 as a Libertarian. Reinstating the death penalty was a key point in his campaign platform. He withdrew from the race amid   concerns   that a financial disclosure could violate his radio contract. Stern claimed polling showed his campaign getting up to 20% of the vote against incumbent Mario Cuomo and eventual winner George Pataki.

And what the heck does this little paragraph of yours have to do with anything?

I am sure that Putin could still throat punch Stern; not matter what shape Putin is in. Stern's giraffe neck and massive adam's apple are way to easy of a target to miss.

Why are there so many unhinged right wingers talking about doing violence to people on this website?

Stern slammed Justice Clarence Thomas, who joined the 6-3 majority decision, describing him as "sitting there like Darth Vader, dormant [and] waiting for other kooks to join the Supreme Court."

According to Alito's logic, Clarence Thomas only got 3/5 of a vote and Amy Barrett wasn't eligible to vote on the Roe v Wade decision.

It is a decent idea.

Maybe a radio personality can get a Constitutional Amendment ratified (maybe not).

Howard Stern proved his intelligence when he took his huge bonus in Sirius stock.  Stern thought the stock would soar because he was going to be their main attraction.  The stock tanked.  Maybe he ended up getting was he was actually worth.  

Stern has a huge ego.  That's why he thinks he can get elected.
