The 2020 presidential race continues to move forward this week, in spite of a much, much larger story that has consumed all-but-the-entirety of our media’s existence.
And as the COVID-19 pandemic begins to rain down upon us in full, there hasn’t been too much movement in the Democratic primary. Joe Biden still holds an extremely comfortable delegate lead over Bernie Sanders, and the Vermont Senator has suspended his campaign’s Facebook advertising.
To put it bluntly: It’ll be Biden v. Trump come November.
Popular podcast host and standup comedian Joe Rogan weighed in on that potential matchup this week, and his answer irked a great many social media users.
Comedian and UFC commentator Joe Rogan would rather vote for President Trump than former Vice President Joe Biden in the 2020 election, he said on his podcast Friday.
“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.”
This didn’t sit well with the “resistance”.
I see a lot of Democrats creating a narrative, 7 months in advance of the presidential election, that will allow them to blame a mix of @BernieSanders and Joe Rogan for Trump being re-elected.

Remember how the Bernie campaign was flaunting the Joe Rogan endorsement? Well, turns out that Joe Rogan would rather for Trump over Biden.
Considering how close the Bernie campaign was to Rogan, seems important for Bernie (or at least his campaign) to issue a statement. pic.twitter.com/hbgSapPrrR

Joe Rogan has apparently not been reading the news for the last two weeks.

The Democratic National Convention has been postponed until August this year over coronavirus concerns, but if Biden is anointed at the event, it could mean a landslide for Trump in November.
