Podcaster Joe Rogan reacted to Brian Stelter leaving CNN and said “they’re all on the chopping block” at the network because they “suck at their job.”
During Friday’s episode of “The Joe Rogan Experience” podcast, the host talked with former New York Times reporter and author Alex Berenson about Rogan being attacked by CNN for taking “horse dewormer” after he tested positive for the coronavirus in 2021 and the recent layoffs at the network.
“And one of the things that drove me nuts about when they were so mad at me about COVID,” Rogan shared. “Forget about the fact that CNN literally used a filter on my face to make me look jaundiced.”
“We’ve showed side-by-side clips of the original video that I posted on Instagram,” he said. “And then they took that and put it through a filter that made me look yellow.”
“But all those people are gone now, which is hilarious,” he added. “All those CNN people.”
Berenson replied, “Brian Stelter … boop.”
“Yeah,” Rogan replied. “They’re all on the chopping block. Don Lemon’s on the chopping block. Jim Acosta. They’re all on their way out. Which is hilarious. But they should because they suck at their job. It has nothing to do with what they did to me.”
The host then showed the original CNN clip to Berenson, who replied that Rogan looked “like the Hulk.”
“Yeah, it’s crazy,” the podcaster shared. “They wanted to make me look like dog s***. They wanted to make me look like I’d been smoking …”
Berenson replied, “Oh, I remember that, horse dewormer!”
Rogan responded saying, “yes, ‘praises horse dewormer,’” in relation to what CNN had said about him. “Meanwhile, I didn’t praise it. This is what I did. I listed the things that I took and I said I’m way better in three days. In five days I was negative. No one cared about that.”
CNN recently announced Stelter was leaving the company and his media show “Reliable Sources” would come to an end on August 21, as The Daily Wire previously reported.
Rogan consistently proves he’s not afraid to tackle any issue, speaking about everything from how President Joe Biden “can’t talk right anymore” to calling out Will Smith for slapping Chris Rock at the Oscars for just doing his “f***ing job.”
