Trump Accepts Joe Rogan's Offer to Moderate Debate with Biden
Podcast star will moderate debate to avoid media bias
President Donald Trump has pounced on popular podcast host Joe Rogan to moderate the coming debate with Democratic nominee Joe Biden.
Trump responded Tim Kennedy's post on Twitter saying, “I do.”
“On my podcast with @joerogan he offered to moderate a debate between @JoeBiden and @realDonaldTrump It would be four hours with no live audience."
"Just the two candidates, cameras, and their vision of how to move this country forward," Kennedy wrote.
"Who wants this?” he asked.

Both Rogan and Kennedy discussed the debates during “The Joe Rogan Experience," podcast.
Rogan said he would be pleased to moderate a debate between Trump and Biden to avoid media bias.
“First of all, I want no one else in the room, just the three of us, and you’d have to stream it live so no one can edit it, and I would want them in there for hours,” Rogan said.
“If they wanted to do that – they both wanted to come here in Austin, sit down and have a debate – I would 100% do it,” he continued.
“But I don’t think that Biden can handle it," Rogan said.
"I think Biden is like, I think he’s, I mean people get mad at me for saying this, I think there’s something wrong, and I don’t think there’s something wrong, because I’m guessing, or because I’m pro-Trump. I’ve seen him fall apart,” Rogan added.
The two presidential candidates have agreed to three debates with the Commission on Presidential Debates choosing the moderators.
The first debate will be held in Cleveland, the second Oct. 15 in Miami, and the third Oct. 22 in Nashville.
Earleir this year, Rogan voiced his concerns on Biden's mental stamina, declaring that "Trump is going to eat him alive."
Rogan predicted that Trump would beat the former Vice President during live debates because Biden "can barely remember what he’s talking about while he’s talking."
During his show, 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, referring to Democrats ignoring Biden's public gaffes.
