“Just the two candidates, cameras, and their vision of how to move this country forward.”
A few days ago, Joe Rogan did his highly watched podcast with guest Tim Kennedy, a veteran, martial arts fighter, and TV host.
At one point, Kennedy asked Rogan if he would consider using his podcast to moderate a long-form debate between President Trump and Joe Biden. Rogan had a few reasonable conditions but said he would “100 Percent do it.”
Rogan said he would want it to last for hours with only the three of them in the room, and to be live-streamed so no none could edit it.
Morgan Chalfant reported at The Hill:
Trump says he’s interested in debate hosted by Joe Rogan
President Trump on Monday signaled he would participate in a four-hour debate with Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden moderated by Joe Rogan, despite such a format being likely impossible.
Trump shared a tweet from Tim Kennedy, a retired mixed martial artist, who wrote that Rogan, a comedian and mixed martial arts color commentator, offered during his podcast to moderate a four-hour debate between Trump and Biden without a live audience.
“Just the two candidates, cameras, and their vision of how to move this country forward. Who wants this? #debates #Election2020,” Kennedy tweeted.
Tim Kennedy announced the news on Twitter:
On my podcast with @joerogan he offered to moderate a debate between @JoeBiden and @realDonaldTrump It would be four hours with no live audience. Just the two candidates, cameras, and their vision of how to move this country forward. Who wants this? #debates #Election2020

Shortly after that, Trump responded saying he would do it:
Watch Rogan and Kennedy have the discussion below. The video is cued to start at the 2:00:40 mark, just press play:
This would be big, and before you laugh it off, remember that Bernie Sanders appeared on the Joe Rogan podcast and it was one of his most watched episodes.
This would be the most watched debate in history. https://t.co/IqE0lR5pnA

Here are a few more reactions:
Honestly haven’t seen a single reason from either side of the aisle why @joerogan debate wouldn’t be a more meaningful and worthwhile way for voters to see who these two candidates really are and what they stand for
Old network format just turns into a talking points contest

The Trump-Biden 4-hour debate hosted by Joe Rogan is going to be the best thing ever televised in history. If it happens.

This would be the greatest Debate of the Election.

Rogan is pretty far to the left politically, yet many people on the right trust him to be more impartial than the media. What does that tell you?
