Podcast host Joe Rogan unloaded on Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden during a recent broadcast of his show, predicting that President Donald Trump was “going to eat him alive.”
“You have to be able call out s**t that’s wrong on your side,” Rogan began. “And this is one of the problems that the Democratic Party is having right now with this Joe Biden guy. You guys gotta be able to call it out, you can’t let this slide, because everybody else see’s it and Trump is going to eat him alive. He’s going to eat that guy alive.”
“The guy can barely remember what he’s talking about while he’s talking,” Rogan continued.
Regarding videos that show Biden struggling to talk or remember events, Rogan said, “Play any of them, they’re all crazy. Every video of him recently talking he’s stumbling through s**t, he forgets what he’s talking about.”
Rogan then proceeded to show recent highlights from much-criticized interviews that Biden had on MSNBC and ABC.
“He doesn’t know what he’s talking about when he’s talking,” Rogan said. “He doesn’t look good, either. And they got makeup on him. His skin is all pulled tight like a lizard.”

The video clips that Rogan played on his show went viral this week on social media.
During an interview on ABC’s “The View,” Biden struggled to make a coherent statement about curing the coronavirus, saying, “We have to take care of the cure, that will make the problem worse no matter what.”
During an interview on MSNBC, Biden tried to attack Trump, saying, “Why doesn’t he just act like a president. That’s a stupid way to say it– sorry.”
“Go ahead,” Wallace responded.
“No, no, it’s probably best I don’t,” Biden responded.

Rogan ripped into Biden earlier this month after the candidate said, “We hold these truths to be self-evident, all men and women created by, go, you know the, you know the thing.”
“Stop. Pause. He can’t be president,” Rogan responded. “Stop. Pause. Pause. Listen, we can’t play any games here, folks. This is a really old man who can’t talk. This is not a joke. Like that right now, ‘you know the thing,’ play that again. This should get you into a mental hospital. They should be like, ‘Hey, um, Joe are you alright?’”
Biden’s Democrat rivals have also called his fitness for office into question during the primary contest.
After one of the debates, then-candidate Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) criticized Biden over concerns that he couldn’t “carry the ball,” telling CNN, “I think we are at a tough point right now because there’s a lot of people concerned about Joe Biden’s ability to carry the ball all the way across the end line without fumbling. And I think that Castro had really legitimate concerns about can he be someone in a long, grueling campaign … and has every right to call out.”
“I think there were a lot of moments where a number of us were looking on the stage when he tends to go on sometimes,” Booker continued. “At one point, he was talking about communities like mine listening to record players. I don’t remember the last time I saw a record player … But there are definitely moments where you listen to Joe Biden and you just wonder …”
