Rogan, 54, made the revelation during a Monday interview with Lex Fridman, and he was very candid about his views toward Trump.
“I am not a Trump supporter in any way, shape, or form,” Rogan said. “I’ve had the opportunity to have him on my show more than once. I’ve said no every time.”
“I don’t want to help him. I’m not interested in helping him,” he said.
The former president is an extremely polarizing figure, Rogan said, and people have abandoned “their own ethics and morals and principles” to attack him and his supporters because they view him as “an existential threat to democracy itself.”
“The Trump era is also going to be one of the weirder times when people look back historically about the division in this country.”
The podcast host and UFC commentator fully expects Trump to run in 2024, he said.
“He is running against a dead man,” Rogan said, referring to President Joe Biden.
“Biden shakes hands with people who aren’t even there when he gets off stage,” he said. “I think he is seeing ghosts. … If he was anyone else, if he was a Republican, if that was Donald Trump doing that, every f***ing talk show would be screaming for him to be off the air.”
An interview has the ability to “revitalize and rehabilitate” a person’s image, according to the podcaster, who used Alex Jones as an example.
Jones was genuine during his interviews, but Trump most likely wouldn’t be, Rogan said, who admitted that he is not well versed enough at this time to discuss all the political corruption in the United States.
“I don’t know if he would genuinely be there,” he said. “I think he would be putting on a performance.”
