Joe Rogan Offers To Moderate A Presidential Debate. Trump Says Yes.
President Donald Trump accepted an offer for comedian and podcast host Joe Rogan to moderate a presidential debate ahead of the November election. Trump’s opponent, Former Vice President Joe Biden hasn’t yet responded to Rogan’s offer.
“On my podcast with @joerogan he offered to moderate a debate between @JoeBiden and @realDonaldTrump It would be four hours with no live audience,” wrote UFC fighter Tim Kennedy on Twitter Sunday night. “Just the two candidates, cameras, and their vision of how to move this country forward. Who wants this? #debates#Election2020“
Trump responded: “I do.”
A petition was also started and has amassed over 255,000 signatures in favor of Rogan’s offer. The voters who signed onto the petition say they feel disenfranchised and distrust the media, adding that Rogan is balanced and trustworthy.
The two candidates are set to have their first debate on September 29. In the meantime, it remains to be seen whether a Joe Rogan debate would actually come to fruition.
“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. I would 100% do it,” Rogan said.
He added, “It would be the best way to find out, but I don’t think that Biden can handle that… 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. He’s had multiple brain surgeries.”
