Trump jumps on offer to have Joe Rogan moderate debate with Joe Biden


President Trump on Monday jumped on an offer from mixed martial arts commentator and Spotify podcast host Joe Rogan to moderate a four-hour debate with former Vice President Joe Biden.

“I do,” Trump responded on Twitter to a post from Tim Kennedy, a retired MMA fighter.

“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.

Rogan and Kennedy were discussing the debates Sunday on the “Joe Rogan Experience” podcast.

Rogan said 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,” he continued.

“But I don’t think that Biden can handle it. I think Biden is like, I think he’s, I mean people get mad at me for saying this, I think there’s something wrong and I don’t think there’s something wrong, because I’m guessing, or because I’m pro-Trump. I’ve seen him fall apart,” Rogan said.

The two candidates have agreed to three debates and the moderators selected by the Commission on Presidential Debates.

The first debate will be held Sept. 29 in Cleveland, Ohio, 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.
