Did he sell out, or buy in? After that, a nightclub in Malden. These are some of the places Howie Carr has been spending his weekends lately, renting them out for stage shows in which he relives his favorite moments from the election.
You can learn a lot about Howie by going to one. The show I attend takes place in September, at the banquet hall in Achushnet, a blue-collar hamlet of 10, When I get there at 11 a. He looks good for The VIP experience turns out to be a minor scam. Speaking personally, I am not made to feel like a VIP. On the radio and in his Boston Herald column, Howie is sarcastic, crude, and proudly chauvinistic. A gunslinger in a target-rich environment, picking off liberal moonbats and PC weenies. In person, he is surprisingly withdrawn, and proves unskilled at making small talk with his fans.
Likewise, before I started reporting this story, I assumed Howie was a cocktail-circuit fixture. Turns out no. He tends to stick to his house in Wellesley, venturing out mainly for events like these. When the VIP line thins out, I introduce myself. Howie avoids eye contact and utters a few monosyllabic noises. Oh, okay. In the spirit of not getting what you paid for, Coulter is caught in traffic and arrives an hour late for the event. When she does show up, the audience settles in and somebody from a local radio station warms up the room.
Howie has been hosting fundraisers for Diehl all year.
In theory, being a thrice-weekly newspaper columnist precludes you from openly flacking for a politician, but the Herald apparently does not mind. Diehl leans in for a selfie with Howie and Coulter, who are waiting in the wings, near the bar by the side of the stage. Good time to mention that the bar is empty, and no food or drinks will be served. The main event begins.

For the grand finale, we are forced to watch a gratuitously long clip of Hillary Clinton having a coughing fit. Here the audience locates its decency and goes a little quiet. Lock her up! Next, a clip of Clinton falling down in lower Manhattan. I am, however, struck by how lamely partisan it is. Coulter, for all her curdled nativism, has a handful of convictions that supersede her loyalty to the president. Howie, evidently, does not.
Welcome to the Howie Carr experience, circa Trump Saved America from Hillary Clintonis a work of shameless hagiography.
Inhe hosted rallies with Trump and lunched with him on his private jet. InKathy and Howie ed Mar-a-Lago. To help defray the membership fees, he churns out hastily written, self-published books, sells right-wing tchotchkes on his website, and stages events like this one. You may think Howie Carr has been a bigot forever and are therefore not surprised by his lateral move into Trump bum-kissery. He made his reputation not as a drive-time shock jock but as a populist muckraker, gleefully exposing the corruption, nepotism, and depravity that pervaded Beacon Hill.
You know, take your pick. So what really happened? There are clues in his upbringing. Howie Carr was born in Portland, Maine, to a mother and father who spent their lives serving rich people. His childhood was split partly between Palm Beach, Florida, where his father worked at the Breakers resort, and Greensboro, North Carolina, where his mother was secretary to a local CEO.
When she later took a job as the assistant to the headmaster of Deerfield Academy, her husband followed her there and became manager of the school store.
Howie attended on scholarship. Surrounded by elites, but not admitted to their ranks: good preparation for the rest of his life.
After graduating Phi Beta Kappa from the University of North Carolina, then a stint at a small newspaper, Howie took a job in at the Heraldwhere he fit right in playing lunch-pail foil to the Boston Globe.
When most were too chicken, he hurled Molotovs at Whitey and Billy Bulger, the mobster and politician brothers whose good fortunes rose in parallel. A: Because they want to have something to do in the afternoon. Publicly, you clutched your pearls. Privately, he was your guilty pleasure. A conservative ideologue. But that might have hurt his proto-Deplorable brand.
Yet he clung to his blue-collar persona—and cheapskate tendencies. Gelzinis says that Howie, among other staffers, used to pad his expense reports, and drove around in demo cars that dealerships loaned him.
You can write whatever you want. Illegal aliens. Welfare queens. Gay people in general. Inafter Massachusetts legalized same-sex marriage, Howie lost his shit in embarrassing fashion. On the one hand… what the hell, Howie? On the other hand, these sorts of weird spasms launched him into Archie Bunker territory, where he could be laughed off by polite society. And yet, he had his moments. As time wore on, he became a kind of survivor. Globe columnists Mike Barnicle and, later, Kevin Cullen were tarnished by fabulism scandals.
Yet Howie remained, name-checking the buried bodies, raging against the dying of the light, and so on. So what if it was shtick? The column could have been written by an algorithm. Well, that was easy. Howie had found his man. Besides, Trump made for fun radio. There were other benefits, too. Later in the summer, car mogul Ernie Boch Jr. Soon, his daughter Charlotte—he has five daughters from his two marriages—landed an internship at the Trump Organization, and after that, another internship, at the White House. Factor in the Mar-a-Lago membership, and ta-da, Howie was a full-blown toady. By the time Trump became president, Howie was touting his connection to the White House as the foremost achievement in his career.Bj or ass Boston Massachusetts tonight
