Joe Rogan: I’d Vote for President Trump over Joe Biden
Podcast host blasts former Vice President during interview
During a conversation with Eric Weinstein, the managing director of Thiel Capital and host of the podcast The Portal, Rogan steered the conversation towards 2020 politics.
Below is the partial transcript:
ERIC WEINSTEIN: I think that in general people, when they are given no choice at all, express themselves moronically.
JOE ROGAN: When they are given no choice at all — How so?
WEINSTEIN: I want a choice of an actual president that’s viable. I don’t have one. Now you’re going to ask me which of the none-viable people do you like best?
ROGAN: This is the real issue with the Democratic Party. They’ve essentially made us all morons with this Joe Biden thing.
WEINSTEIN: Can you imagine?
ROGAN: I can’t vote for that guy.
WEINSTEIN: I can’t vote for him; I can’t vote for Trump.
ROGAN: I’d rather vote for Trump than [Biden]. I don’t think he can handle anything. You’re relying entirely on his cabinet. If you want to talk about an individual leader who can communicate, he can’t do that. And we don’t know what the fuck he’ll be like after a year in office. The pressure of being President of the United States is something than no one has ever prepared for. The only one who seems to be fine with it is Trump, oddly enough. He doesn’t seem to be aging at all or in any sort of decline. Obama, almost immediately, started looking older. George W. [Bush], almost immediately, started looking older.
“I think I'll probably vote for Bernie... He’s been insanely consistent his entire life. He’s basically been saying the same thing, been for the same thing his whole life. And that in and of itself is a very powerful structure to operate from.” -Joe Rogan pic.twitter.com/fuQP0KwGGI— Bernie Sanders (@BernieSanders) January 23, 2020
Last month, Rogan voiced his concerns about Biden's mental stamina, declaring that "Trump is going to eat him alive."
The podcast host predicted that President Donald Trump would beat the former vice president during live debates because Biden "can barely remember what he’s talking about while he’s talking."
Rogan also showed clips of recent interviews - where Biden fumbles and appears confused - to illustrate his point.
“You have to be able to call out s**t that’s wrong on your side,” Rogan explained.
Earlier last month, the Trump campaign trolled Biden with an embarrassing video compilation of his struggles on the campaign trail.
The video begun with CNN’s Ana Cabrera saying, “Obama warned Biden’s aides to make sure didn’t embarrass himself.”
House Majority Whip Rep. Jim Clyburn called for the cancellation of Biden's remaining 2020 primaries and debates to protect him from saying something that he “cannot overcome.”
“I think when the night is over, Joe Biden will be the prohibitive favorite to win the Democratic nomination, and quite frankly, if the night ends the way it has begun," Clyburn told NPR.
