So…Spotify podcast host Joe Rogan has offered to moderate a four-hour presidential debate with President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden. And the first debate looked like a Joe Rogan Carlos Mencia throwdown all over again.
“On my podcast with @joerogan he offered to moderate a debate between @JoeBiden and @realDonaldTrump It would be four hours with no live audience. Just the two candidates, cameras, and their vision of how to move this country forward. Who wants this?” Kennedy said in his tweet.
“I do,” Trump responded on Twitter to the post from Tim Kennedy, a retired MMA fighter who was recently a featured guest on the Joe Rogan Experience podcast episode in which Rogan offered to host the candidates.
Rogan and Kennedy were discussing the debates on the podcast when Rogan said that to avoid the bias in the media, he’d be happy to moderate a debate between Biden and Trump.
“First of all, I want no one else in the room, just the three of us, and you’d have to stream it live so no one can edit it, and I would want them in there for hours,” Rogan said. “If they wanted to do that – they both wanted to come here in Austin, sit down and have a debate – I would 100% do it.”
This was major news on social media and the possibility of this debate has been trending across most platforms. But relax everyone, because this is all highly unlikely – despite Trump’s willingness to take part. The two candidates have already agreed to three debates with the moderators selected by the Commission on Presidential Debates.The first debate will be held Sept. 29 in Cleveland, the second Oct. 15 in Miami and the third Oct. 22 in Nashville. The moderators are Kristen Welker of NBC News, Steve Scully, the political editor of C-SPAN Networks, and Chris Wallace of Fox News.
