Star podcaster Joe Rogan is stepping up his criticism of former President Donald Trump.
Rogan, who has never been shy about sharing his political views, criticized Trump during an argument with fellow comedian Tom Segura on last Thursday’s edition of his “The Joe Rogan Experience” podcast.
When Segura said that Trump was “full of energy,” Rogan responded by suggesting that the former president was “on Adderall.” Segura also referenced claims that Trump “would get bored at the CIA briefing in the mornings.”
“I heard they would put his name on the briefings a few times to keep him interested,” Rogan said.
“[Jared Kushner], his son-in-law, said he came up with a formula to keep him engaged… the formula was ‘two good guys, one bad guy,’” Segura said. “So if he was going to be given bad news, you would start with good news. So they say, ‘This is going well, everyone’s excited about you for this, there’s something wrong here.’ Plus, people love you for this.’”
“Of course, it’s a male baby”, replied Rogan laughing.
“He’s a little boy,” Segura added.
Mediaite was the first to report Rogan’s comments.
Rogan’s latest comments came days after he revealed in another episode of his podcast that he had refused to interview Trump on multiple occasions and would not do so in the future.
“I am not a Trump supporter, in any way, shape, or form,” Rogan said. “I’ve had the opportunity to have him on my show, more than once, and I’ve always said no.”
“I don’t want to help him, I’m not interested in helping him,” he added.
Rogan also referred to Trump as an “existential threat to democracy itself.”
The 54-year-old comedian has also been fiercely critical of President Biden, referring to him as a “dead man” who is physically and mentally unable to handle his responsibilities as commander-in-chief.
Rogan has indicated he would support Florida Governor Ron DeSantis in the 2024 presidential election. While DeSantis has yet to formally announce his candidacy, he is considered a front-runner for the GOP nomination and a possible rival to Trump. if he attempts another run for the White House.
“I feel like [DeSantis] he did for Florida, people felt sorry for him, but in the end, he was right,” Rogan said last month. “He was right in terms of deaths, he was right in terms of protecting our vulnerable populations, he was right in terms of monoclonal antibody distribution.”
