Joe Rogan may have a new gig coming up…
Last week, Rogan had Tim Kennedy on The Joe Rogan Experience as the first guest in his new Austin, Texas digs. During the talk, Rogan mentioned that he wanted to have a four hour debate between Donald Trump and Joe Biden. “First of all, I would want nobody else in the room,” Rogan stipulated. Just the three of us. And I would want to stream it live so no one can edit it.” Rogan added “We should have that. It’s 2020. We have the ability to have that. We’re not talking about 1979.”
The other day, Tim Kennedy sent out a tweet stating “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?” And to the surprise of both everyone and also nobody at all, President Trump replied “I do!” on Twitter.
Is this something that could likely happen? Yes, but it probably won’t. In the past, Joe Rogan has stated that Biden’s campaign had pitched the idea to Rogan, who turned it down. But given Rogan’s previous comments about Biden, this may not be something they’d be into. Also, just because Trump says he wants to do it, it’s easier said than done logistically speaking. We’re sure someone on Trump’s team is trying to talk him out of it and wanting him to go with a more standard debate. Because we know that, as great as Joe Rogan hosting a debate would be, it definitely wouldn’t fit into the standard.
Another reason why it wouldn’t be surprising is because the accessibility that modern media has to the President has all changed within the last 10 years, starting with Obama going on WTF with Marc Maron, Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, and Between two Ferns, followed by Trump hosting SNL during the first campaign. And that’s not to mention the advent of Twitter giving a direct line to the public. No idea that would’ve previously seemed unlikely is off the table anymore. Pretty much anything is fair game at this point.
Naturally, if it does happen, however unlikely it might be, it’d definitely be something you’d have to check out!
