Politics Set to leave office on Wednesday
Howard Stern has claimed that serving as the President of the United States has taken its toll on Donald Trump‘s mental state.
Voted into office in 2016, Trump has refused to concede he lost the 2020 presidential election to Joe Biden, alledging voter fraud in a number of key swing states.
“I know something about Donald Trump,” Stern said on The Howard Stern Show recently.
“He really does want to be loved, he does want people to really love him, that drives him a lot.
“I think he has a very sensitive ego. And when you’re president of the United States people are going to be very, very critical, and I think in his mind right now he’s saying ‘I want to protect the country’… I think his motive is ‘People will love me because I’m going to keep terrorists out of the country.’
“I think he’s genuinely shocked when people come back and say, ‘Wait a second, there’s more to this.’
“He loves the press, he lives for it. He loves people in Hollywood. He only wants to hobnob with them.
“This is something that’s going to be detrimental to his mental health because he wants to be liked, he wants to be loved, he wants people to cheer for him.
“There are people who are better suited for this kind of thing [the presidency] and he didn’t need this in his life.”
