Joe Rogan said that he was given many opportunities to interview former President Donald Trump and refused because he didn’t want to help him.
Rogan made the comments while being interviewed on Lex Fridman’s podcast.
“The Trump era is also going to be one of the weirder times,” Rogan said.
“When people look back historically about 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,” he added.
Rogan went on to say he believes Trump will run again in 2024 before making the admission about his show.
“By the way, 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,” Rogan continued. “I don’t want to help him. I’m not interested in helping him.”
When Fridman tried to press Rogan on whether he’d ever have Trump on his podcast based on other people he let on his show, Rogan persisted.
Rogan also mocked Biden when he spoke about the possibility of Trump running against him.
“He’s running against a dead man, you know? I mean, Biden shakes hands with people that aren’t even there when he gets off stage. I think he’s seeing ghosts. You see him on Jimmy Kimmel the other day? He was just rambling,” he added.
Rogan’s show, the “The Joe Rogan Experience,” is one of the most popular and successful podcasts in broadcasting history despite protests by many on the left who object to politically incorrect statements he’s made.
