Speaking with his guest, a retired mixed martial artist named Dan Henderson, famous and highly influential podcaster Joe Rogan expressed his nostalgia for the Trump Administration and its successes compared to the abject failure of Biden’s America, particularly in the realm of the economy and sane and stable foreign policy.
Rogan began by commenting on how the mainstream attitude toward Trump, once thought of as a playboy rather than the locus of conservative resistance to the woke regime, changed significantly once Trump ran for office and was elected.
Making that point, Rogan said, “Boy, do f—–g things change. He was in all the rap songs, rappers would always talk about Trump, everybody loved Trump. He was like this wheeling, dealing billionaire character that everybody enjoyed.”
That’s when Henderson chimed in and commented on how the Trump presidency went, saying, “I felt like he did a decent job.” Rogan, agreeing, noted that Trump’s economic policies were hugely successful, saying, “As president? When you look at his regulations, it certainly helped the economy.”
Henderson agreed with Rogan on the economy point, noting that Trump’s policies put America and its economy into a far better position than the current president’s policies, saying, “I feel like we were in a lot better spot then than now, for sure.”
Rogan agreed, saying, “Without a doubt.” He then added, “Well, there’s a lot of s— that happened,” leading him to comment on the wild days we have experienced over the past few years, particularly the COVID-19 pandemic.
Rogan then got to commenting on how badly Biden has butchered the geopolitics issue, noting that there are a number of situations that are already bad and getting worse all the while. He said, “The world scares the s— out of me right now. Right now I’m like ‘Boy, this is not good.’ This Ukraine thing is not good, everything is not good.”
He went on to note that the Middle East situation, meaning the current fight between Israel and Hamas and the reactions to that war from the Gulf nations, which had been normalizing relations with Israel, and Iran, a major backer of terror in the region. He said, “There’s no good solutions to the Middle East, all of it looks terrible, and the Ukraine thing looks terrible.”
Rogan then noted that the situation is particularly problematic given that one false move could lead to nuclear war, which, even if the vast arsenals of Russia and America were not used, would change the world significantly and lead to massive amounts of bloodshed.
He said, “All it takes is one person to f—–g launch a nuke and the world changes forever, and I’ve never felt like that was a possibility in my lifetime until now. This must have been what it felt like at the beginning of World War 3, or World War 2 rather.”

NEW: Joe Rogan says the United States was “without a doubt” better off under Donald Trump, says he sees nuclear war as a possibility for the first time in his life.
Americans are finally waking up but unfortunately it took global war for people to figure it out.
