Howard Stern: Johnny Depp Is a “Narcissist” for Televised Trial

“The reason I think he wanted that on — he wanted that televised is that’s what narcissists do,” Stern said. “They think they can talk their way out of everything.”

The defamation trial that Johnny Depp has against his ex-wife Amber Heard remains ongoing. SiriusXM Howard Stern chimed in with his opinion regarding why television cameras are in the courtroom.

Stern believes Depp wanted the trial televised because the actor is a “narcissist,” desperately craving attention. Furthermore, the radio host went on to say that by having the cameras there, the “Pirates of the Caribbean” star could persuade the court of public opinion.

“The reason I think he wanted that on — he wanted that televised is that’s what narcissists do,” Stern said. “They think they can talk their way out of everything.”

“On the narcissism scale, I think Johnny Depp is a huge narcissist — and what I mean by that is, he figured, ‘I’ll put this on TV. And because I’m so persuasive and I’m so smart, and I’m such a wonderful guy.’”

Furthermore, the radio host continued saying that if Depp wanted to save his career, he would have kept the cameras out of the courtroom throughout the trial. However, Stern adds that the actor’s narcissism played a role in having them there.

“But that’s what narcissists do. ‘I will charm the pants off of America at the trial.’ No, you won’t! This will not go well,” Stern said. “It’s not going well for you; it’s not going well for her. It’s not going well for anybody. You sound like two battling children.”

“It’s just coming off really badly. Johnny Depp testified in court for two days last week. Two days. Think about that; lots of room to embarrass yourself,” Stern continued. “Two full fu**ing days! First of all, his difficulty in speaking the English language is fantastic!”

Syndicated radio host and author Ben Shapiro suggested that an endorsement from former President Donald Trump is not the golden ticket it’s portrayed to be.

During his show on Wednesday, Shapiro said Trump may hold power over the Republican party but when it comes to local political races, there are other factors at play.

“So, there’s a difference between Donald Trump endorsing a person, which I don’t think has a lot of power. And Donald Trump is destroying people,” Shapiro said via Mediate.

“He (Trump) actually talked about how Brian Kemp was terrible and horrible and no good and very bad. And Brian Kemp won because he had earned the loyalty of the Republican voting base in Georgia, despite Trump’s anger at Brian Kemp.”

Shapiro concluded that “Trump does not have the sort of stranglehold the media thinks he has on the Republican Party.” 

Recently, Pennsylvania Senate candidate Dr. Mehmet Oz is one Trump-endorsed candidate that has backed away from the former president.

An Axios analysis of Oz’s social media and campaign website uncovered that the Republican candidate is no longer lauding his Trump endorsement ahead of the midterm elections this fall.

Longtime WIBC-FM news anchor Stan Lehr is calling it quits after nearly 30 years behind the microphone. The Indianapolis Star reports that Lehr’s last day will be July 1. 

WIBC is owned by Emmis Communications who last week announced a move to sell its Indianapolis radio properties to Maryland-based Radio One. Lehr’s retirement reportedly had nothing to do with the news of the impending sale. 

“This will bring to an end a long chapter in the station’s history,” WIBC News Director Chris Davis wrote in his email. “His reputation as a stickler has been widely-known in the industry for decades.” 

Davis described Lehr as a “stickler” who never wanted recognition for his work. 

“Instead, he made it clear to all who work or have worked with him that strong writing, accuracy, and excellence in delivery are the best ways to serve the listeners,” added Davis.
