A couple months ago, a petition appeared on change.org that is lobbying to get Joe Rogan to moderate the 2020 Presidential Debate. A couple days ago, the petition really started to pick up steam. Forget Lester Holt. We want Joe!
As of this morning, the petition has been signed by almost 50,000 people. The creator of the petition makes several good points as to why Joe would be a great moderator:
⁃ Joe Rogan is a widely respected host who has hosted interviews with politicians, economists, scientists, and other popular figures, who come from various walks of life.
⁃ Joe Rogan has experience with interviewing both progressive and conservative thinkers. Figures such as Andrew Yang (D), Tulsi Gabbard (D), Kyle Kulinski (D), Gary Johnson (L), Benjamin Shapiro (R), and Candace Owens (R), have all appeared on “The Joe Rogan Experience” program.
⁃ Joe Rogan has an audience containing viewers from all areas of the political spectrum. Joe Rogan is not registered under any political party and is well-known for having civil, productive, and interesting, conversations about political issues without partisan bias.
All these reasons are great, but I just want to see Joe get sidetracked during the debate and start asking the candidates what they think about the pure, unadulterated strength of an adult chimpanzee. It would be great TV.
