“I can’t vote for that guy,” Rogan said of the Democratic presidential primary front-runner. “I’d rather vote for Trump than him. I don’t think he can handle anything.”
The “Joe Rogan Experience” guest this week was Eric Weinstein, a mathematician and economist, as well as the managing director of Thiel Capital. The 2020 election came up during their discussion, and both men agreed they “could not” vote for Biden.
Weinstein said he couldn’t vote for Trump, either.
“I want a choice of an actual president that’s viable,” Weinstein said. “I don’t have one.”
Rogan, who previously endorsed Biden’s primary rival Sen. Bernie Sanders, would apparently prefer President Trump to serve a second term than vote for Biden.
“The pressure of being the president of the United States is something that no one has ever prepared for,” he said. “The only one who seems to be fine with it is Trump, oddly enough. He doesn’t seem to be aging at all.”
He went on to say that he thought the White House took a visible toll on both former President George W. Bush and former President Barack Obama “almost immediately.”
And in Rogan’s view, Biden is unfit for the job.
“If you want to talk about an individual leader who can communicate, he can’t do that,” Rogan said.
He also called it ironic that the coronavirus pandemic could be a campaign issue that harms President Trump’s reelection bid, noting the president is “apparently a germaphobe.”
Rogan’s first choice, Sanders, faced blowback earlier this year from the far-left when the comedian announced his endorsement of the democratic socialist.
“I think I’ll probably vote for Bernie. Him, as a human being, when I was hanging out with him, I believe in him, I like him, I like him a lot,” Rogan said in a January podcast.
