Joe Rogan has done a lot of things as an entertainer, from providing color commentary for UFC events to being a successful stand up comedian to starring in multiple movies/tv shows to hosting a popular podcast.
A petition started on Change.org has already gotten over 120,000 signatures and the goal of said petition is to have Rogan moderate a future presidential debate.
Ashton Stowell started the petition, with the following summary provided by him as to why Rogan should moderate an upcoming debate:
We are petitioning for the Commission on the Presidential Debates to elect Joe Rogan as one of the moderators for the 2020 Presidential Debate. Here are the reasons why we believe this would be a great decision:
1. Joe Rogan is a widely respected host who has hosted interviews with politicians, economists, scientists, and other popular figures, who come from various walks of life. He has revolutionized the way political interview and discussion works, as he has provided a long-form media format that has allowed the exchange of ideas to be fully explored.
2. Joe Rogan has experience with interviewing both progressive and conservative thinkers. Figures such as Andrew Yang (D), Tulsi Gabbard (D), Bernie Sanders (D), Kyle Kulinski (D), Gary Johnson (L), Benjamin Shapiro (R), and Candace Owens (R), have all appeared on "The Joe Rogan Experience" program.
3. Joe Rogan has an audience containing viewers from all areas of the political spectrum. Joe Rogan is not registered under any political party and is well-known for having civil, productive, and interesting, conversations about political issues without partisan bias.
Please help us in our goal to elect Joe Rogan as one of the moderators for the 2020 Presidential Debate! Mr. Rogan would make a fantastic moderator and would draw in more interested viewers for the debate.
Rogan, who has come out as a Democrat, has yet to issue any kind of statement on the petition.
