The Russian invasion of Ukraine continues to be atop the talking points on various news media outlets, including on the radio side where SiriusXM host Howard Stern is going after former President Trump and Republicans for their praise of Russian President Vladimir Putin.

“I used to love the Republicans, and their stance was firmly pro-capitalist, anti-Communist, and certainly a staunch defender of free people and free elections,” Stern said on his show.

“They’ve just totally disappointed me in their support of Vladimir Putin — the praise they heap on him, Trump’s praise of Vladimir Putin,” Stern continued.

During an interview last week leading up to the Putin-ordered invasion of Ukraine, Trump said that the Russian president’s recognition of the Donetsk and Luhansk people’s republics in eastern Ukraine was “smart” and “pretty savvy.”

Stern went on to shred the Kremlin leader and those in the Republican party that are praising Putin in his follow-up remarks.

“This guy’s a f—ing animal, and I wish he was dead like I wish [Adolf] Hitler was dead,” Stern said. “The man is a human stain. I don’t care how much power he has — don’t praise him. Don’t say what a genius he is. He’s not a genius… He’s a thug. He’s a bully.”

“I can’t imagine the horror of the life of the Ukrainian people. They’re living in a country; they decided to have free elections… And this scumbag who has more money than anybody, who has more power than anybody, who enslaves an entire country, who will kill you if you’re a journalist, will kill you if you speak out against him, who’s got everything a man could want if you’re truly a megalomaniac, and he didn’t have enough.”

Finally, Stern ended by saying he isn’t sure if he can vote for the Republican party for the praise of Putin. The radio host stated that the country needs to unify with the message of democracy and freedom.

“I voted for many Republicans. I don’t see how I’ll ever get back to that,” Stern said. “It’s time for this country to at least have a unified message about democracy and freedom.”

“I’m sick and tired of the f—ing nightmare that’s going on with people defending Vladimir Putin. I never thought I’d live long enough to see it.”

SiriusXM radio host Howard Stern told “Morning Joe’s” Joe Scarborough and Willie Geist in an extensive interview that MSNBC is the network for him regarding cable news consumption. 

Stern stated that he’s a major fan of “Morning Joe” and went the extra mile to say that he and co-host Joe Scarborough share the same political idealogy.

“I watch you guys every morning,” Stern said (h/t Mediaite). “I really enjoy the show. Oddly, I agree politically with almost everything Joe says. I don’t think there’s much difference there.”

The radio host thanked MSNBC for providing him with what he loves: 24/7 news. Additionally, Stern offered a shoutout to network host Symone Sanders and stated he’s no fan of Dateline repeats.

“By the way, I want to give a shoutout to MSNBC,” Stern added. “Thank God you don’t play the old Datelines anymore on the weekends. I like news. I watch this channel exclusively for news. I tune out on the weekend. 

“It’s like all news stuff. I’m watching old Datelines. I like when you guys are onI like news 24/7, and now I find I’m getting it. I get Symone on the weekend. Big fan of hers. Symone coming on strong. What can I tell you? I know the whole lineup.”

Charges against John DePetro have been dismissed as the radio host faced a trespassing charge related to an incident over the summer during a Monday court hearing.

DePetro was arrested in mid-August outside a home on Staples Avenue in Warwick.

Police searched the house several months earlier as part of an investigation into the disappearance of Charlotte Lester, who has been missing for six months.

“I respect our justice system and respect law enforcement, specifically the Warwick PD,” DePetro said on Twitter. “The search for Charlotte Lester continues as I resume efforts searching for answers into her disappearance and holding Mark Perkins accountable for his actions against myself and Ladybug.”

The man who lives there, Mark Perkins, was also arrested the following day after he allegedly charged at DePetro with a lawnmower while DePetro was live-streaming. 

Unlike DePetro, who had his charges dismissed, Perkins still faces an assault charge, according to court records.

Champlin Broadcasting Conservative Talk The Eagle 96.9 KQOB Enid/Oklahoma City and 1640 KZLS Enid will look a little different for its listeners as the station has rebranded.

The station features a syndicated lineup, including Hugh Hewitt, Brian Kilmeade, Dan Bongino, Mike Gallagher, Joe Pags, and Bill O’Reilly. Furthermore, with the rebrand possibly comes a new addition.

Freedom 96.9 is teasing the addition of Dana Loesch to the lineup as well to enhance the rebrand further as the station begins a new chapter as it provides news/talk to the residents.
