Howard Stern is proudly 'woke.'

In the clip Trump shared, Fox Across America host Jimmy Failla criticized the 69-year-old shock jock, calling him "woke" and attributed his downfall to the ex-president's success.

Failla highlighted the irony of the radio DJ's negative portrayal of Trump, considering their previous friendship and frequent appearances together on The Howard Stern Show.

"Donald Trump's media omnipotence broke Howard Stern. This is very important. Trump used to be on Stern's show every week. They were friends," Failla said in the clip. "So this idea that Trump was the worst guy who ever walked the face of the earth, why were you hanging out with him?"

"Trump came along and had a similar act to Howard's in the sense that he was crass and vulgar, and he really did resonate with the little guy. And he rode that mentality all the way to the White House," the host continued. "It killed Howard because he was the king of all media. He had that 'super ego' of like, 'I'm the most important person to ever open their mouth in front of a microphone.'"

Failla went on to call the 90s shock jock "the Prince Harry of all media."

"It's 100% ego," he added. "The secondary level to this is politics from the standpoint of how he did so many things that were anti-woke."

The host then listed off a number of controversial moments from Stern's career, such as objectifying women and wearing blackface in sketches.

"To me, the opposite of woke is being asleep. And if woke means I can't get behind Trump, which is what I think it means, or that I support people who want to be transgender or I'm for the vaccine, dude call me woke as you f***ing want," Stern told his listeners.

"I am woke, motherf****r, and I love it. I want to be awake. I want to read legitimate news sources," the radio host continued. "Here's how woke I am. I believe the election was not rigged. I am woke. I think that's a compliment."
