Howard Stern has revealed he is considering running for U.S. President.

The radio personality made the revelation as he discussed the U.S. Supreme Court overturning Roe v. Wade on Friday, effectively revoking the constitutional right to an abortion.

According to Variety, Howard reacted to the decision on his SiriusXM show by publicly considering a 2024 election campaign. The radio host added, "I'm not f**king around."

Howard said his run for presidency hinges on former U.S. President Donald Trump running for office again in 2024, exclaiming, "I'll beat his a*s."

He further explained how the recent Supreme Court decision turned his mind to a presidential run, saying, "I said to (co-host) Robin (Quivers), and I hate to say this, but, but I said to her, 'I'm actually gonna probably have to run for president now.'

"The problem with most presidents is they have too big of an agenda. The only agenda I would have is to make the country fair again."

Two specific items on Howard's agenda would be removing the Electoral College voting system and appointing five more Supreme Court justices - bringing the number of justices up from nine to fourteen.

"I am going to do the very simple thing that'll set the country straight: One vote, one person, no more of this Electoral College, I'm getting rid of it," he said.
