On a recent episode of The Joe Rogan Experience, Joe Rogan, who has historically voted primarily Democrat, publically praised Gov Ron DeSantis for his handling of the COVID pandemic and encouraged the public to “vote Republican.”
Rogan was discussing the pandemic with his guest NFL Quarterback Aaron Rodgers when he began criticizing the country’s response to COVID, saying, “No one who was alive today had ever experienced a true pandemic. And I’m hoping that now that this is over, people are going to, you know, recognize that some serious errors were made and not repeat those. That’s the best you can get out of it.”
“So what do you tell those people?” asked Rodgers.
“Vote Republican,” replied Rogan. “That’s what a lot of them are gonna do anyway. I mean, more than a million people transferred over to the Republican party, I think in 2021 alone.”
“But, you know, you look at guys like Ron DeSantis who kept Florida open and had some pretty reasonable policies in terms of, like, what to do about COVID and, you know, he mapped it out on television and was widely criticized for this. Where he was saying, you know, we need to protect our elders, we need to make sure that medicare is available for those people, and everyone else, you should be able to do whatever you wanna do.”
