Jay Leno is a sore subject for Howard Stern. On Thursday, while promoting his new gig as an Americas Got Talent judge on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, he confronted the host about asking both him and Leno advice for interviewing President Obama.
The obviously offended Stern went on the say, “What a mistake. That dummy…You called Jay Leno? Jay Leno hasn’t done a good interview ever.” Stern has made his loathing for Leno no secret. In previous interviews he’s called him both “a crook” and “horrible.” Continuing his shock jock antics Stern also attacked Fallon’s musical guest, former Rolling Stone’s guitarist Mick Taylor. However, he later apologized via twitter.
Much of Stern’s hatred for Leno comes from the shock jocks close relationship to the Late Show’s David Letterman. As has been well documented, Letterman and Leno maintain one of the greatest television feuds of all-time. With that said, should Stern drop the hatchet, or do his outbursts about Leno make for great entertainment?
Check out the video below! You can catch Stern in action on season 7 of Americas Got Talent Mondays 8pm ET on NBC.
