It’s pretty rough when Biden is such a horrible candidate that Bernie supporters are flipping to Trump. Worse still when the ones doing the flipping are pop-culture ‘influencers’.
That’s what has happened in the case of Joe Rogan.
To say Joe is underwhelmed by the Democrat candidate is a serious understatement.
He’s compared Biden to the old flick, Weekend At Bernie’s, and is convinced the old guy will wind up being somebody else’s ventriloquist dummy. Honestly, that isn’t far from the assessment Biden’s critics on the political right have arrived at, either.
The podcast host, who last week described the former Vice President as “very old” and “stumbling,” claimed the Democratic Party “made us all morons” by promoting Biden’s campaign and potential nomination. Rogan has previously stated he would “probably vote for” Bernie Sanders.

That wasn’t all he has said about Biden, either.
In an April conversation with Eric Weinstein, the Rogan said that the Democratic Party has “made us all morons” by putting forward Joe Biden as the nominee.
Mr. Rogan says he doesn’t believe early polls showing Mr. Biden with a commanding lead, given media bias and the 77-year-old’s recent public showings.
“The dumbest people in the world are the ones who answer polls,” Mr. Rogan said Tuesday. “So out of the dumbest people in the world with nothing to do, most of them are picking Biden. Or more of them are picking Biden, but says who? Says all of the media outlets that want Trump to lose? How do we know? How do we know if they’re being accurate?”
The host continued by saying, in short, that the election may come down to the percentage of people who are willing to vote for Mr. Biden knowing that his vice president would be the de facto commander in chief.
“I believe there’s a large group of people that are very uncomfortable with Donald Trump being the president. I absolutely believe that,” Mr. Rogan said. “I believe that there’s also a large group of people that are very uncomfortable with a man who seems to be mentally compromised, winning the election, and doing so hiding. I mean, the guy’s never — he was just at a thing the other day and he forgot where he was.” –WashingtonTimes
Even Joe Rogan says that Biden looks “mentally compromised” and it’s disturbing to a growing number of Americans who can see that he’s hiding in his basement and that is his campaign.

Why should this matter?
Well, for one thing, Joe Rogan is THE single largest podcast there is. He just signed a 9-figure podcast deal with Spotify.
How many advertising dollars do you suppose the Dems would have to spend to undo THAT kind of damage? He has a LOT more credibility to HIS audience than the talking heads on the news do.
