Buzzfeed caught shock jock Howard Stern's Wednesday Sirius show, and Howard confirmed that Trump said he was for the war.

This has become a big issue because Donald Trump keeps trying to rewrite his own history on his support and or lack of support for the war in Iraq.

Howard Stern said, “I was up late watching the debate. I hung in until about 10:30 almost, heard my name mentioned, and I went to sleep. It was kinda thrilling. Yeah, oh yeah. Well, it always comes up because, you know, Trump was on our show years ago and said yeah, you know, he was kind of for the Iraq war, us going into Iraq."

He continued, "He was saying he really wasn’t for it, and so they were forced to mention my name. Yeah. It was cool. Good promotion.”

Good promotion indeed. And a nice way to end another Trump campaign lie.
