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