America’s biggest podcast host Joe Rogan revealed the real reason he has never and will never interview former President Donald Trump.
Rogan appeared on a 4th of July episode of Lex Fridman’s podcast when the topic came up of the former President.
Rogan described the Trump era as a “weird” time in American history, saying the ex-president was so polarizing that liberals were willing to throw their morals out the window just to attack him.
When Fridman asked Rogan if he thinks Trump could make a comeback in 2024, Rogan responded that Biden is hard to lose to at this point.
“Well, he’s running against a dead man, you know?” Rogan said, describing the sitting President. “I mean, Biden shakes hands with people that aren’t even there when he gets off stage. I think he’s seeing ghosts … You see him on Jimmy Kimmel the other day? He was just rambling. I mean, he’s — if he was anyone else, if he was a Republican, if that was Donald Trump doing that, every f***ing talk show would be screaming for him to be off the air.”
That’s when Rogan made a hard left turn to express how opposed to Donald Trump’s candidacy he is. He also explained the reason he has never and will never interview Trump despite sharing an audience.
“By the way I’m not a Trump supporter in any way, shape or form. I’ve had the opportunity to have him on my show more than once — I’ve said no, every time. I don’t want to help him. I’m not interested in helping him.” Rogan told Fridman.
Fridman wasn’t buying it though, suggesting that Joe Rogan would eventually break and have Trump on, saying Kanye has been on before despite being polarizing.
“Yeah, but Kanye’s an artist,” Rogan shot back. “Kanye doing well or not doing well, doesn’t change the course of our country.”
Kanye West did mount a presidential bid in 2020 that ultimately failed.
Joe Rogan is one of the most influential men in media, with his “Joe Rogan Experience” podcast garnering an average of 11 million listeners per episode. Do you think he will eventually have Trump on despite his claims? Do you think he is influential enough at this point that he could affect the outcome of a Presidential election?
