Howard Stern: Democrats Are Backing Biden over Women Candidates Because He’s ‘Safe’

Shock jock Howard Stern said that he felt bad for female candidates running for the Democratic Party’s presidential nomination because “nervous” American voters feel safe voting for former Vice President Joe Biden during an interview on “The View” on Thursday.

Stern criticized failed 2016 presidential candidate Hillary Clinton for “playing it safe,” in 2016 and added that her failure should be a lesson for the entire 2020 Democratic field to not follow in her footsteps.

“The View’s” Joy Behar asked Stern who he liked among the 20-plus Democrats vying for their party’s nomination in 2020.

“I don’t know yet,” Stern said. “It’s almost like there are so many people, I’m on overload, and you know, every week it’s like the flavor of the month.”

Behar interjected that Biden is way ahead of the Democratic candidates in recent polling.

“Biden’s way ahead because I think people want a new president so badly that they want to play it a little safe,” Stern said. “I feel bad for the women running because it’s probably time for a woman to run. But because everyone’s so nervous, they’re tightening up and saying it better be Joe Biden because they got to get the best shot.”
