Joe Rogan Says 'I'd Rather Vote for Trump' Than Joe Biden, President Not 'Aging At All' in Office

Podcast host and comedian Joe Rogan said he would rather vote for President Donald Trump than Democratic candidate Joe Biden, arguing that Trump has held up well to the pressure of the office versus Biden.

The Joe Rogan Experience host spoke at his studio Friday with Eric Weinstein, managing director of the Thiel Capital investment firm, where the two compared Trump's behavior and "fake alpha" persona to that of a professional wrestler. The conversation veered into 2020 politics after Weinstein complained people "express themselves moronically" when they are given no choices in life. 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.

He appeared to compliment Trump's vitality for seemingly "not aging at all" during his time in office.

"I think that in general, people, when they are given no choice at all express themselves moronically. I want a choice of an actual president that's viable. I don't have one. Now you're going to ask me 'which of the non-viable people do you like best?'" Weinstein said. "I can't vote for [Biden]. I can't vote for Trump."

"I can't vote for that guy. I'd rather vote for Trump than [Biden]," Rogan replied. "I don't think he can handle anything. You're relying entirely on his cabinet. If you want to talk about an individual leader who can communicate, he can't do that. And we don't know what the f--k he'll be like after a year in office. The pressure of being president of the United States is something than no one has ever prepared for. The only one who seems to be fine with it is Trump, oddly enough. He doesn't seem to be aging at all or in any sort of decline. Obama, almost immediately, started looking older. George W. [Bush], almost immediately, started looking older."

Earlier in the Friday podcast, Weinstein and Rogan said there is a "very pro wrestling" mindset that motivates Trump supporters. Rogan added that Trump, who is in the WWE Hall of Fame and who once fought owner Vince McMahon in a televised match, has a talent for making complex issues "digestable for morons."

"There's a part of his appeal is he's hitting a certain frequency that provides comfort and narrows the boundaries of what's possible and puts things into some very digestable form that morons love. I'm not saying that all people who are Trump supporters are morons, just people who support him economically. But there's a lot of people whoa are morons that like him because he's talking in this frequency. He's not going to say anything that's self-deprecating or introspective ... he's got a very narrow bandwidth."

"I don't think this is a change for Trump, he's always been a performative -- like a fake alpha," Weinstein added.

Biden will turn 78 just days after the November election and Trump is set to turn 74 years old in June of this year.

Newsweek reached out to Rogan to comment Saturday.
