Joe Rogan has long been on the target of the political left. The comedian had scored a record setting spotify deal in 2020 and was suddenly faced with a ton of scrutiny. Amidst all that he was basically declared to be a conservative due to the level of skepticism he had about Covid and several other issues.
But Rogan is not so easy to put in a bracket. One thing’s for sure – he’s not a fan of the sitting president of the US, Joe Biden. Nor of his political foe, Donald Trump, as of late.
In a recent episode of his podcast, The Joe Rogan Experience, welcomed British podcaster, Chris Williamson.
In the UK podcast scene, Williamson’s show, Modern Wisdom, is one of the biggest, with over 25 million downloads from almost 400 episodes.
During their three-and-a-half-hour episode, the pair discussed many things. One of them is the difference between vulnerable narcissism and grandiose narcissism.
To Rogan, Williamson explained the definitions of each, which the longtime UFC color commentator identified as former US president Donald Trump’s personality.
“Grandiose narcissists are the ones who genuinely believe they are better than everyone else and they are constantly trying to prove this to everyone… If someone were to take the p*ss out of them, for the grandiose narcissists, it’ll be just like water off the duck’s back, they don’t care.”
To which, Rogan replied:
“Like [Donald] Trump!”
The Brit agreed with Rogan and admitted that he felt that way as well.
Despite throwing some dirt at former president Trump, Rogan also slammed the current president Biden’s administration for ‘gaslighting’ about ‘recession’.
Rogan brought up how “the government is trying to not call it a recession,” when Williamson told him that the definition of the recession was changed on Wikipedia.
Rogan suggested that in order to avoid being held accountable for an economic recession, “they’re literally changing the definition, which is terrible and it should be pushed back against in a big way.”
“It should be something that people get angry about, like, ‘Hey, you’re f*cking with definitions in order to pretend that you’re doing a good job,’” he added.
