Shock jock Howard Stern on Thursday said he supported President Barack Obama's endorsement of gay marriage.

Obama became the first sitting president to endorse gay nuptials during an interview with ABC NEWS.

Appearing on ABC's The View, Stern said Obama had not gone far enough and joked that perhaps he should marry a man.

“It's about time the president said what he said about gay marriage,” Stern told the women of The View. “I think he didn't even go far enough. They should have a national sort of referendum on this thing.”

“He should marry a man maybe,” Joy Behar interrupted with a laugh.

“He should marry a man,” Stern added. “Joy, I agree with you.”

“But this is something long overdue. I mean, why in this country we care about an issue like this. Two people being happy together. We want love in the air. I support the president saying this. But we do need gay marriage in this country.”

“We all have a right to our happiness. We go around once, this is it. I feel gay people can't wait any longer. They want the same right.” (The video is embedded in the right panel of this page. Visit our video library for more videos.)
