Howard Stern said the Democratic Party’s path to the White House will require them to avoid Sen. Bernard Sanders at all costs.

“The King of All Media” told SiriusXM listeners this week that a moderate Democrat can defeat President Trump, but someone who demonizes billionaires and “promising free stuff” is a surefire loser. 

Mr. Stern said that individuals who ask him about possible COVID-19 pandemics don’t understand his immediate priorities.

“I’m more concerned Karl Marx Jr. is going to get the Democratic nomination,” he said Monday, Breitbart reported.

“That’s Bernie Sanders?” asked show co-host Robin Quivers.

“Yeah,” Mr. Stern replied. “Listen, if a Democrat wants to win, against Trump, we can’t have Karl Marx Jr. [because] Karl Marx Jr. ain’t going to win the general election. What they need is a good, strong moderate to be the candidate. … Karl Marx Jr. backed [Cuban dictator Fidel] Castro.”

The radio host then said “all the free s—-” the Vermont senator has promised supporters will not materialize because Congress would outright reject such legislation.

“Bernie goes, ‘I don’t think there should be any billionaires,’ he said while imitating the candidate’s voice. ‘We should take that away.’…  So tell me, give me your utopian vision, Karl. How much money should anyone be allowed to make?”

Mr. Stern then spotlighted Mr. Sanders’ multiple homes and said that perhaps, if he’s being intellectually consistent, they should be taken away from him.
