The NY Post is reporting that President Trump has accepted Joe Rogan’s offer to moderate a 4-hour long Presidential debate.
In a tweet by former special forces fighter and now MMA athlete, Tim Kennedy, Kennedy said Rogan offered on his podcast to moderate the debate.
Kennedy’s Tweet: ” On my podcast with @joerogan, he offered to moderate a debate between @JoeBiden and @realDonaldTrump. It would be for four hours with no live audience. Just the two candidates, cameras, and their vision of how to move this country forward. Who wants this?”
I want this. I want this real bad.
Biden’s stamina wouldn’t last a four-hour debate with Trump. That is the reason why the Presidential debates are always under attack by the left. They know Biden’s inability to handle the pressures of the job will be too much for him, and he will be shown as a fraud to the American people. They can’t have Biden debate Trump on a level playing field.
I don’t think Joe Rogan is the type of guy to leak either party the questions before the debate. This would certainly be interesting to see both men have to answer questions they were not privy to beforehand.
No teleprompters or earpieces. Just unfiltered answers to questions that real Americans have.
Do I think this debate is going to happen? No.
I do think it shows Trump isn’t scared to debate, and the lack of response or a no from Biden will prove to the American people just how weak Biden is.
If you can’t do a debate without a teleprompter and succeed, then how are the American people going to trust that you can handle sitting down with President Xi of China?
It shouldn’t be too much to ask of our president and the man running against him to be capable of handling a long-form discussion about civil matters.
More than likely, Joe Rogan’s offer will be declined by Biden’s camp, and he’ll be painted as a “right-wing nut.” This will backfire for Joe Biden because his campaign doesn’t understand that Joe Rogan represents the people who sit in the purple part of our two-party system. If Biden’s team attacks Rogan’s character, it will only increase Trump’s support from the middle.
