Joe Rogan hums 'Devil wears a suit and tie' after Trump accepts his offer to moderate 2020 debate with Biden
The Biden campaign has not clarified if the former vice president would be open to participating in such a matchup
Joe Rogan has reacted after President Donald J. Trump jumped at his offer for moderating a debate with Democratic challenger Joe Biden. There's no doubt that the 'Joe Rogan Experience' is one of the biggest and most popular podcasts known to man. His enormous platform has enabled him to invite a wide variety of guests on his show, including politicians from both sides of the aisle. As of today, Rogan has interviewed some of the most popular names in politics, including Bernie Sanders, Andrew Yang, Tulsi Gabbard, and Dan Crenshaw.
Rogan, who is also a world-famous UFC commentator and accomplished comedian, floated the idea of moderating a four-hour presidential debate between Trump and Biden, with just the three of them in a room. Shortly after, the POTUS expressed interest at the prospect -- leaving thousands of JRE fans speechless with excitement. Rogan himself took to Instagram to address Trump's interest and posted lyrics of a Colter Wall hit "The Devil Wears A Suit And Tie" - a song about a blues artist who sells his soul to become a virtuoso.
Perhaps the song exemplifies how moderating a presidential debate could potentially hurt Rogan's personal brand or even leave his fanbase divided. That said, the proposed matchup between the president and his Democratic rival came during a recent episode of Rogan's widely popular podcast.
“First of all, I want no one else in the room, just the three of us," Rogan explained to his guest, former UFC fighter Tim Kennedy. "And you’d have to stream it live so no one can edit it, and I would want them in there for hours. If they wanted to do that- they both wanted to come here in Austin, sit down and have a debate – I would 100 percent do it.”
Kennedy tweeted about the exchange on Monday.
"On my podcast with @joerogan he offered to moderate a debate between @JoeBiden and @realDonaldTrump," he wrote. "It would be four hours with no live audience. Just the two candidates, cameras, and their vision of how to move this country forward. Who wants this?"
Trump, who wouldn't miss the golden opportunity to tap on Rogan's base, enthusiastically responded saying: "I do!"
However, the Biden campaign has not clarified if the former Vice President would be open to participating in such a matchup. Rogan, for one, doesn't think the lifelong Democrat would be up for the challenge.
“I don’t think that Biden can handle it," Rogan said during the podcast. "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."
Social media couldn't help but share their excitement with their own creative takes. "Welcome to the presidential debate, I’m your host Joe Rogan. Our first question tonight: have you guys seen that video of a bear fighting a moose? Holy shit pull that up Jamie," one tweeted.
"Trump agreed to a 4-hour debate with Joe Biden moderated by Joe Rogan and liberals are already losing their bloody minds. This is epic," political contributor Kambree Nelson added. "Joe Biden was interviewed by Cardi b, but won’t agree to a debate moderated by Joe Rogan. Says a lot," gun rights activist JT Lewis chimed in.
"The crazy thing is... Joe Rogan would be the most fair and most trusted moderator of a Presidential debate, perhaps of all time," author Justin Hart wrote.
