If it would truly be a policy discussion, I agree. However we know that to not be the case - therefore 4 hours sounds excruciating

Yeah. 1 hour would more than enough for these 2 dinosaurs. Maybe they can debate in a steel cage policy match for WWE.

LOL, I love how quickly Trump jumps at debates that he knows Biden won't be attending. The ones he knew Biden would attend he took almost 2 months to accept when he was finally forced into it.

I'll give Trump credit; he knows his audience.

Rogan is pro-Trump? I didn’t know that. I remember he liked Bernie in the primaries.

he has just recently come out in support of Trump, seemingly because he really does not have any confidence in Biden. He did support Bernie and presumably would have supported some other democrats over Trump.

He said Biden is terrible. He is middle America.

Let's avoid media bias and instead have a guy who says he is a Trump supporter moderate the debate. 

Makes sense

Joe Rogan said this?

Yes. Right in the linked article in the OP

 

“But I don’t think that Biden can handle it. I think Biden is like, I think he’s, I mean people get mad at me for saying this, I think there’s something wrong and I don’t think there’s something wrong, because I’m guessing, or because I’m pro-Trump. I’ve seen him fall apart,” Rogan said.

So it would be kind of like what Trump deals with in the other debates?

No, just one.  Does this mean you think Wallace is fair? I was asking an honest question, not a gotcha.

While he’s a Foxer he’s shown he isn’t afraid to call Trump out and I’m not sure he cares for him very much. That one will be way easier on him than the others though.

 I thought I recalled Rogan saying things that led me to believe he saw through Trumps nonsense.

He did. He has criticized all political candidates. Those who are saying he is right haven't watched his show. He calls out bull####.  He's number 1 for a reason.

You may think Rogan speaks for middle America, and that’s fine. However the man is himself a coastal, Hollywood elite, likely making scads of dough.

Don’t you think it’s funny that the right wing (maybe sometimes rightly) will rail against the entertainment industry but as soon as someone like James Woods or Chuck Woolery or Tim Allen or Ted Nugent or Clint Eastwood comes along they promote them forward?

I am only calling out the fact that people are clamoring for a different sort of moderator because of bias. To me that seems like you are asking for an unbiased moderator. And that would preclude anyone who has expressed their support for either candidate

That’s not what he’s saying there, he’s saying people get mad at him because they think he’s pro-Trump, because he’s guessing, etc etc.  He’s talking about how he’s perceived there   

Reading it I can see how that is what people think he said but when you hear it, as I did, it’s clear he wasn’t sayin that he was.  But he definitely thinks Biden is slipping and that has him concerned.

OK I just watched a clip too. And yea, he seems to be anti-Biden and not so much pro-Trump.

However, I can't see how or why Biden would ever agree to go on his show when all he rants about is "how clear it is that Biden is in the throws of dementia"

I love Rogan’s show and listen all the time, but both of them on at the same time would be a #### show.  Trump would just word salad all over the place and it would be a waste.  Now both on individually that would be great.  You get a much better sense of the person when they sit there for an hour plus just talking.

I've watched quite a few of his interviews.  I've never once gotten the impression that he's pro-Trump.  He supported Gabbard and was sympathetic to Sanders, who also went on his show. 

I'd have to see the remark in context.  At first glance it seems like people are misrepresenting who he is.

He’s very middled in general. He talks about Trump being absolutely nuts all the time.  His interview with Yang was great too along with the others you mentioned.  Im not a Bernie fan and he wouldn’t get my vote but I found him to be genuine in his beliefs which is refreshing now and days.

I haven’t listened to Rogan in a while but I’m surprised he considers himself pro-Trump.  

Based on every single thing I've ever watched of him from Snowden to Tulsi to a myriad of other political beings, I can't help but think he's trolling Trump here.  Am I the only one seeing this?  It would be a complete 180 to actually come out as a Trump "supporter" for him.

ETA:  That said, I don't think ANY debates are beneficial for either of these two.  Complete waists of time.

As third party friendly as Rogan is I hope he pushes to get Jo Jorgensen and Howie Hawkins in on this as well.

I'm sure Biden/Trump would stop that from happening though.

If Rogan were serious about a Third Party movement in this country.  He should put that out there....with Jorgensen on all 50 states ballots and Hawkins on 31....it would only make sense. I don't think Trump would agree to that though..... and I don't think Rogan, being so anti-Biden/pro-Trump, wouldn't want to put Trump in a position where he's defending himself from three different angles of our political spectrum.

I also think if I'm managing the Biden campaign, this debate talk with Rogan would scare me to death.

I would expect the Trump side to continue emphasizing the 4 HOUR aspect of it. That's a vulnerability of course for Biden.

All the messaging I've seen has been very clear to make sure to include that 4 hour detail. Which is interesting. Nobody ever talks about how long a debate would go. But for this from the Trump side, it's in every mention. And for good reason. It's very clear what they're doing. 

I'd also start managing Harris with the same focus I'd be managing Biden. I'd have her visiting the ambushed Los Angeles policewoman mom and not just tweeting about it. I'd be making the case she would be an exceptional president to counter all the Trump messaging toward Biden.

If I understand Saints correctly then I don’t think they are the same either.  There’s plenty of people who are tired of their stance on X being co-opted (in a way) by Trump and it being vilified because of how awful Trump is.  They (somewhat reasonably) think that’s unfair.  I will say that the majority that feel this way are probably also pro-Trump but not all of them.
