“We are thrilled that President Biden chose Howard Stern. It’s just another reminder that Howard is in a league of his own, regularly lauded as the world’s best interviewer,” Witz said.

The POTUS got candid about his mental trauma following the deaths of his first wife, Neilia Hunter Biden, and young daughter, Naomi, in the 1972 car crash. Biden confessed that he contemplated suicide at that point, saying, “You don’t need to be crazy to commit suicide. Maybe I just go to the Delaware Memorial Bridge and jump.”

“I used to sit there and just think I’m going to take out a bottle of scotch. I’m going to just drink it and get drunk,” he said, despite having never been an alcoholic. When asked about whether he would debate Trump, Biden told Stern, “I am, somewhere, I don’t know when, but I am happy to debate him.”

Biden joked, “I think I should leave now,” when Stern revealed that he was a strong admirer of the president and had been wanting to meet him for a long time. “I know everyone’s going to think I’m doing a fake interview with you, but you are really here,” Stern said.
