There is a reason the woke left hates podcast host Joe Rogan. And it’s not because he’s a MAGA hat-wearing conservative. It’s because he is a professed liberal who refuses to bow to the radical left’s ideology. And he’s super popular.
Rogan has survived many attempts at cancelation. Even top music streaming service Spotify stuck by Rogan’s side, knowing he brought in millions of listeners (and the woke left does not). Now, the podcast host and comedian has really chapped the left’s hide, when he both slammed Biden’s former press secretary… and continued to defy the left’s narrative on COVID.
Podcast king Joe Rogan blasted ex-Biden administration spokeswoman Jen Psaki as a liar…
“When Jen Psaki said these vaccines are approved by the FDA, which is the gold standard, that was a lie,” Rogan said, noting that the vaccines were initially administered under an “emergency use authorization.”
“They weren’t approved. But she was a propagandist.” […]
But he singled out McEnany, a Harvard-trained lawyer who held the post for Trump’s last year and frequently sparred with a hostile press, as an exception.
“That lady was a f***ing assassin,” Rogan raved. “That lady had like binders, with footnotes. And anyone would say something and she’d be like, ‘That’s interesting, because actually CNN said this.’ And she would like quote it back to them and stuff it in their face.” [Source: Daily Wire]
The reason the left hates Joe Rogan so much is because he can remain objective, in an age of poisonous partisanism. While being liberal, he calls a spade a spade and a liar a liar, regardless of their party affiliation.
Rogan blasted Biden’s previous press secretary, Jen Psaki, who was known for pushing the administration’s narrative over the facts. She stepped over the line to speak in place of Biden, not for him–and got very partisan when things didn’t go the left’s way.
Rogan criticized her on one important point, when she claimed the FDA approved the COVID vaccines. Most Americans recognize the FDA’s stamp of approval as the “gold standard” as Rogan said. Saying these experimental vaccines were “approved” by the FDA was a blatant lie from Psaki.
The FDA authorized “emergency use.” That’s not the same as FDA approval. It will take years before the FDA approves these vaccines, but they allowed their use given the chaos surrounding the pandemic. For Psaki to say they were approved placed greater trust on vaccines that did not deserve it. Rogan was not afraid to call Psaki out on that.
He further outraged liberals by calling Trump’s former press secretary, Kayleigh McEnany the “Michael Jordan” of the job.
Rogan appeared impressed at how prepared and ready McEnany was to shove the media’s lies back into their faces. She was significantly better at her job than Psaki or the current press secretary, who often refuses to answer basic questions.
Not that we need Joe Rogan to tell us this. But millions of listeners were exposed to the point of view the left works hard to hide. The liberal media props up their faded allies in government, while slandering conservatives. But Rogan, himself a liberal, refused to play the same game.
