The COVID-19 pandemic has ruined Howard Stern. Not because it killed him, it didn’t. But it has greatly terrified him and changed his way of living. Stern has hardly left his house since the start of the spread, as he often reminds listeners on his radio show.
What’s more, Stern has no patience for the people who don’t fear the virus to the degree he does. That includes Oprah Winfrey, whom Stern says he has been monitoring on Instagram.
Winfrey recently shared videos of her holiday parties on social, and Stern found her actions dangerous and bothersome.
“I’m really amazed by Oprah, I really am. On her Instagram she likes to take you into her house where every night of Christmas is a big party like a celebration and she flies in a different chef,” Stern said on SiriusXM. “It’s getting very confusing to me. I see what’s going on with COVID.
“Everyone’s got it. Everyone’s sick. People have a 104 fever. I don’t want to have a 104 fever. I don’t want to get sick, so I’m hiding. But everyone else is out running around. I see Oprah is having dinner parties.”
Damn her. How dare she celebrate Christmas amid the omicron spread?
Stern’s issues expand well beyond Oprah Winfrey. On Tuesday, Stern lashed out at all unvaccinated Americans, claiming they have turned the U.S. into a third-world country:
“Believe me, this here is turning into a third-world country because of the f***ing morons we have living here. It’s a sad commentary on my country.”
“This is my country. I’ve got too many morons living here. We could be past a lot of this COVID business,” Stern goes on.
But that’s not true of course. Individuals are contracting COVID, regardless of vaccination status.
Stern cites “freedom” as the true threat.
“Now I’m not into freedom,” Stern adds. “I don’t feel good about what’s going on in my country. I might have to run just to clean this f***ing mess up.”
So Howard Stern is a broken man. Strangely, Stern has abandoned the marketplace demand he created, the need for independent thinkers and honest voices. He’s a shell of his former self. He’s a fragile man living in fear. Howard Stern embodies the type of beta he warned us of in the 90s.
It’s true — Oprah Winfrey is now a braver mind than Howard Stern because she chooses to celebrate Christmas. That’s all it takes.
