Radio host Howard Stern predicted Monday that Donald Trump will be the Republican presidential nominee.

“I’ll tell you why I think he’s going to be the nominee: He’s proven that no matter what he says, people dig him,” Mr. Stern said on his SiriusXM show. “I also think that a lot of people are of the mind that A) they hate illegal immigrants but they just feel funny saying it — whether it’s rational or not — it’s the illegal immigrant draining your economy? Possibly. Is he taking your jobs? Possibly.

“But I think more or less, people are just sick and tired of politicians, meaning that they like the idea of a successful businessman running the country who might actually be able to get [expletive] done,” he continued.

“So, you know, Ronald Reagan was in ‘Bedtime for Bonzo.’ He was a B-list movie star who became a very successful president,” Mr. Stern added. “And so they are looking back toward those days and going, ‘Hey maybe that’s the answer. Forget all these politicians who are professionals, we want to try somebody who is used to a business kind of thing.’”
