Howard Stern: I got so upset because, you know, let’s face it, tapes from our show featuring Donald Trump have been used in the campaign. And the other day, I was talking to Robin on the air, and I said to her, yeah, you know it was really surreal
Robin Quivers: ‘Well, I guess you have to be,’ or something like that. It wasn’t like an enthusiastic…

Quivers: You didn’t confirm anything!
Sterns: Yeah, that ‘Howard Stern now says that Trump is lying about…’

Stern: Yeah! This was on CNN. Big headline and they brought people in. They were having a discussion — a panel discussion. And I was sitting there and I…
Quivers: Can they really do that? You didn’t say anything!
Stern: Nothing! I said nothing new. And so I emailed Trump and I wanted to explain to him that, uh, that is not what I said.
Quivers: They took the tape and they used it.
Stern: They took the tape. I don’t provide tape to people. They’re now combing through tapes and dragging up statements that he might have said.
Quivers: Where are these tapes? I thought we had the only copies.
Stern: The only copies? They’re all over the fucking place.
Stern: So I felt a little weird about that. I’ll be honest with you, I did.
Quivers: Well, you see what the press does. They make up things!
Stern: Yeah. I didn’t come out with it. The tape is what the tape is. Make of it what you will.
Quivers: But don’t say you said anything.
