Donald Trump is not allowed on Joe Rogan Podcast
Joe Rogan has made it clear that Donald Trump will not be appearing on his controversial podcast for any reason.
The host of “The Joe Rogan Experience” stated he had denied several requests to have Trump on his podcast because he does not favour the former president, and the episode was released on Monday.
“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 said.
Rogan added that Trump poses “polarising figure” and was a “an existential threat to democracy itself.”
“So many people felt like they could abandon their own ethics and morals and principles just to attack him and anybody who supports him,” he said.
Fridman noted that Trump might still appear on the show at some point and that he has previously invited controversial guests such as Ye (formerly Kanye West) to appear on his podcast. But Rogan countered, saying, “Kanye’s an artist” and adding, “Kanye doing well or not doing well doesn’t change the course of our country.”
There has been speculation that Rogan and Trump would work together. Trump defended Rogan on the March episode of the “Full Send Podcast” calling him “is not racist” and “a very interesting guy” after Rogan had been criticised for his use of racial slurs in earlier episodes. Trump also commented that Rogan should “stop apologising” for his views, while he was unsure if Rogan had been invited to appear on his programme.
Bernie Sanders is one of the candidates that Rogan has endorsed for the 2020 presidential election, and more recently, Rogan has shown his support for Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, who is widely seen as a potential opponent to Trump in a 2024 presidential candidacy.
In response to the question of whether Trump would be victorious in the 2024 presidential election, Rogan remarked that Trump would be “running against a dead man,” referring to Joe Biden.
Rock star Neil Young asked Spotify to remove his music because it was supporting Rogan, who has come under criticism for his comments on the COVID-19 vaccination. Spotify CEO Daniel Ek criticised Rogan’s remarks but insisted the company would not fire him.
