Howard Stern Blames Trump for Will Smith Slapping Chris Rock at Oscars
Far-left radio host widely mocked for remarks
Far-left radio host Howard Stern has been met with widespread mockery after he tried to blame President Donald Trump for Will Smith slapping Chris Rock at the Oscars on Sunday.
Smith made headlines when he stormed on stage during the live-televised Acadamy Awards and hit comedian Rock for making a joke about the actor's wife, Jada Pinkett Smith.
Rock mocked Jada Pinkett Smith over her hair loss due to alopecia.
There's nothing new about a husband hitting another man for insulting his wife.
However, anyone with a platform has been looking for someone to blame for the incident.
It's likely no surprise to many that some on the Left have wasted no time in pointing the finger at Trump.
During an episode of his SiriusXM radio show, Howard Stern said he'd cracked the code on Smith's bizarre behavior:
"Will Smith and Trump are the same guy," Stern deduced.

"[Smith] open-hand, with a lot of force, smacks [Rock] right in the mouth on TV,” Stern said.
"Now the first thing I said to myself was ‘what the f*** is going on, is this a bit?’
"Because where is security?
"This is a live television event.
"Not one person came out because he’s Will Smith, this is how Trump gets away with sh**.
"Will Smith and Trump are the same guy."
"He decided he’s going to take matters into his own hands, you know, at a time when the world is at war.
"Bad timing, man," he added. "Calm your f***ing a** down."
Mediaite's tweet highlighting the segment of Stern's show got mixed reviews:

Do you think nothing would have happened had it been Ben Affleck slapping Chris Rock?!????— KT (@teague_kj) March 28, 2022
If he means that we as human beings, since around 2016 coincidentally or not, have lost all dignity about ourselves, have lost the ability to turn the other cheek, and have lost all control of impulse in the face of criticism or words we don’t like, then he’s absolutely right.— Jeremy Swank (@jswank80) March 28, 2022
I used to like Howard, he's turned into a real piece of poop. Don't you dare compare the two. When did Trump raise his hand and they were constantly making fun of his wife. Smith only thinks of violence to solve problems.— Jewel (@2DollarNChange) March 28, 2022
This happens when they can get over Trump! Everything in their little minds has to include Trump. 😂🤡— CYNDI (@CYNDI_ROSE__) March 28, 2022
TDS is a serious condition!
