On a recent podcast of “The Joe Rogan Experience,” Joe Rogan and British comedian-turned-commentator Russell Brand discussed the issue of flawed leadership in America, highlighting their belief that some officials have been appointed based on their identity rather than their experience or competence.
During the show, Rogan criticized President Joe Biden’s leadership and the individuals he has appointed to surround himself with. Rogan called Biden cognitively “gone,” and said he’d vote for Trump over Biden in the 2024 election.
Rogan recalled his conversation with mathematician and podcaster Eric Weinstein about the upcoming election.
“I was actually talking about it with Eric Weinstein and he was like, ‘I mean, I can’t vote for Biden.’ And he goes, ‘I can’t vote for Trump,’” he said. “And I go, ‘I would vote for Trump before I’d vote for Biden.’ Just cause I think with Biden like he’s gone!”
“Like, you know, he’s gone,” Rogan reiterated. “You’re gonna be relying on his cabinet. And I knew his cabinet would be this sideshow of diversity — which is exactly what it is.”

Rogan went on to name Sam Brinton, the former senior Department of Energy official in the Biden administration who was charged with airport baggage theft.
Rogan then implied that Brinton was hired by the Biden administration solely for his appearance, stating that the administration may have thought, “this is perfect for us, a man who dresses like a woman and has a beard and a mustache but also wears lipstick, this makes us look inclusive, I don’t care about this person’s credentials, I don’t care if they’re good or bad, let’s hire them to make us look good.”
Rogan said the mentality of hiring people based on appearance rather than credentials wouldn’t work for running a Ben & Jerry’s let alone “the most powerful government in the world. It’s nonsense.”
Brand chimed in to add, “They’ll put people in positions in order to carry that narrative. But for no other reason, because I don’t truly believe that they deeply care about those ideas. They’ve managed to make ordinary American people hate one another. Like, on the basis of a 50/50 split. You can’t criminalize half of a country and say that they’re far-right fascists any more than you can say that, in my view, extreme leftists.”
“These kinds of issues oughtn’t be what’s determining how a country is run,” Brand continued. “And when they are the issues that determine how a country’s run, the powerful run amuck, the elites are able to pursue their agenda just fine.”
