In a recent podcast, host Joe Rogan engaged in a conversation with athlete and physician Dr. Sean Baker about the political landscape in the United States. They touched upon the reliance of the Democratic Party on President Biden, with Rogan suggesting that the party is left with "no cards" and may lean heavily on "party loyalty" for the 2024 elections.
Their discussion also included California Governor Gavin Newsom, a key figure in the Democratic Party. Rogan critiqued Newsom's leadership in California, particularly addressing the state's challenges with homelessness. He noted that the only significant intervention he observed was during Chinese President Xi Jinping's visit to San Francisco, implying that the city's image during such high-profile visits seemed to take precedence over the everyday living conditions of its residents. Rogan's remarks highlighted his perception of political priorities and their impact on local issues.
Despite this, Baker hinted at the possibility of Newsom running for president in the future. He then raised a question about the upcoming election, asking, "What’s going to happen in the next election? I mean, is Biden even going to be able to run?"
Rogan suggested, "I think, at this point, they kind of have to run him. Unless he dies."
The podcast host continued, "We have one year now. We’re in November, we’re in late November, we have less than a year. What are they going to do? Look, if Biden died tomorrow, and then what do they do with Kamala Harris? They’re going to put her on the moon? Like, what are they’re going to do? She’s the vice president." Rogan went on to describe the scenario where, "If he dies, she becomes the president, which is f---ing wild when you hear that lady talk."
Baker proposed an alternate hypothetical situation where Biden decides, "’I’m just not feeling up to it’", leading to Harris becoming the first female president. However, in this scenario, Harris would then resign at the Democratic Party convention, prompting the party to potentially suggest, "’Let’s give it to Newsom.’"
"That is possible," Rogan replied. "But it would be a real problem for people that are Kamala Harris supporters. And believe it or not, they exist."
Rogan contended that the Democratic Party's approach to securing victory in the 2024 election hinges on anticipating a conviction of former President Donald Trump.
"I think they have f---ing no cards, and they’re looking at this game. And I don’t know, I think they’re depending upon party loyalty. And they’re depending upon Trump getting convicted and arrested and imprisoned rather. I don’t know if that’s going to happen. I don’t think it is. It seems like it’s a bunch of trumped up charges, no pun intended," he said.
Rogan and his guest expressed doubts regarding the timing of the legal system's actions against Trump.
"It does make sense," Rogan pointed out, "if you want to look at banana republic tactics," suggesting that the political establishment is opportunistically targeting its political opponents.
