No holds barred: Joe Rogan calls Donald Trump a 'man baby,' claims former POTUS was on Adderall
Rogan had earlier made it clear that he would not help Trump in his 2024 presidential bid
Joe Rogan ramped up his one-sided battle with Donald Trump on Monday, July 18, saying in his podcast that the former president is a ‘man-baby’ and that his excessive energy comes from Adderall. Rogan’s latest comments came during a conversation with comedian and frequent guest Tom Segura, who mentioned how, as president, Trump was full of energy and supposedly only slept about four hours per night.
Rogan declared, "He's on Adderall," before asking his guest for confirmation, “Do you think he’s on Adderall?” Segura claimed he’d heard from multiple people who worked with Trump on his reality show 'The Apprentice' that he was 'f**king gassed up for shoots' because otherwise, he had trouble reading the teleprompter.
The discussion then turned to claims that Trump would become bored during his intelligence briefings and would want his name to be liberally scattered across the pages in order to remain interested. Segura also discussed how Jared Kushner would allegedly sandwich unfavorable information about Trump between two compliments. Rogan laughed and replied, “Of course! He’s a man baby.” “He’s a f***ing toddler. It’s exactly how I talk to my kids about sh*t,” Segura added.

During the 2020 election, Rogan had said that he would rather vote for Trump than Biden, but has since confirmed that he didn’t vote for either candidate. In spite of numerous requests from the former president, he endorsed Florida Governor Ron DeSantis last month for the 2024 election and declared that he was not interested in supporting Trump by having him appear on his well-known podcast. Earlier this month, Rogan claimed that he turned down numerous opportunities to interview the former President because he didn't want to help him. He said, "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."
During a larger discussion about the polarization of US politics, Rogan drew the line about Trump. Reflecting on the history of the country's split, he predicted that the Trump era would be considered ‘one of the weirder times.’ “When people look back historically on the division in this country, he’s such a polarizing figure that so many people felt like they could abandon their own ethics and morals, and principles just to attack him and anybody who supports him because he is an existential threat to democracy itself.”
