Donald Trump and Joe Biden, together, on stage, sells itself. Add Joe Rogan, the few uninterested Americans are now all-in.
Rogan is down. The $100 million podcaster told Tim Kennedy he offered a four-hour setting, with no audience, alone with the candidates.
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

President Donald Trump, too, is all for it.
I do! https://t.co/H9Eghnqpuy

In an industry grossly soaked in partisanship, Rogan would provide an insightful, refreshing conversation. Rogan, second to none, unmasks his guests, for better or worse. Additionally, he is more curious than past agenda-driven moderating hacks.
Rogan, in January, endorsed Bernie Sanders. However, he isn’t married to either party. He is unpredictable — an individual thinker. His unconventional perspective spins heads in both Hollywood and Washington.
Unfortunately, it is doubtful the three get together. Biden is not looking for extra hours to talk. There isn’t a worse scenario for Biden than sitting in a room for hours with two lightning-rods who will drill his every word.
While Trump may not like the hot seat, the common man and woman demo Rogan reaches is one Trump targets.
On Sept. 29, Fox News anchor Chris Wallace will moderate the first of three debates. His July sit-down with the president produced multiple headlines in an overall balanced conversation. Steve Scully and Kristen Welker are set to moderate the next two on Oct. 15 and Oct. 22, respectively.
Man, this would be fun.
