If there were ever to be great showdown between recent White House press secretaries, popular podcast host Joe Rogan revealed that he would be rooting for Team Kayleigh.
Rogan compared the soon-to-be former Press Secretary Jen Psaki to her predecessor, President Donald Trump’s last Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany — and in addition to claiming that he would never want their job, he made it clear that he though McEnany had been far more effective in the role.
Rogan sat down with comedian Tony Hinchcliffe for Thursday’s episode of “The Joe Rogan Experience,” and the conversation turned to President Biden and the fact that, especially recently, he seems to have more and more trouble putting sentences together.
“I feel bad for that Jen Psaki lady. Everybody says she’s shrill in the way she communicates but whatever. Imagine having that job!” Rogan said, adding, “F*** that job, ’cause she has to debate with people more than the president does. She has to go back and forth with the press.”
“And sometimes she says things in confidence but, just like being on a f***ing podcast, sometimes you say things and you think it’s true while you’re saying it. Turns out it’s not and you represent the President of the United States and no one is fact-checking you in real-time it’s all happening live on television,” he continued.
“Yikes. F*** that job!” Rogan said. “The only one who was good at it was the lady — last lady with Trump. What’s her name? Kiley …?”
Rogan struggled to pronounce her name, and Hinchcliffe jumped in: “Oh, yeah, she was great. Kayleigh.”
“Kayleigh McEnany! She’s the best,” Rogan said. “She’s the GOAT at that s***. ‘Cause she would have f***ing receipts, she had, like, tabs on her notebook, she would pull right to — like when she knew they were coming with a gotcha.”
“‘Actually, if you would have done your research before asking that question, you would know …'” Hinchcliffe laughed.
“She took large dumps on Jim Acosta’s head,” Rogan added. “It’s all this gotcha s***.”
“The press wants to get her and make her look stupid and she wants to show them that she’s the girl boss and ‘I have all the facts,'” Rogan argued, noting that after months of repeating that she would “circle back” on certain issues, she seemed to have stopped doing that.
“That was her thing, circle back. She doesn’t say that anymore, cause people started making fun of it and also because she didn’t want to circle back,” he said. “She would’ve already circled back on those other things. There was a lot of things she was supposed to circle back on. She probably has a f***ing to-do list that’s a mile long.”
The segment begins around 30-minute mark.
