It is no secret to anyone that I am not a fan of President Donald Trump.

So, this may surprise some readers to hear me take this position: I am calling on the most famous podcaster in the world, Joe Rogan to interview the most controversial president in modern history.

Now let’s be clear, I felt that during the four years that Trump was president, whatever ideological or legislative accomplishments he achieved, were outweighed by his unleashing of mental, emotional, and physical chaos that wreaked havoc all over our country in various forms.

One of the tragedies of that time is that if Trump could have curbed any of his maniacal impulses, even a little bit, he might still be president.

Meanwhile, President Joe Biden’s approval ratings continue to slide and Vice President Kamala Harris continues to give nonsensical speeches during which she sounds more like a high schooler caught giving a report for which she hasn’t prepared, than one of the most powerful women in the world.

All of this presents Republicans with a golden opportunity to retake the White House as we head into 2024.

That is — unless we blow it and nominate former President Donald ‘the election was stolen from me’ Trump.

Trump has amassed a war chest with his Trump Save America Pac that has over $110 million dollars in the bank.

That is more money than both national political parties, the Democratic National Committee and the Republican National Committee, hold in their primary bank accounts combined.

These numbers are nothing to ignore. Trump is more than capable of running for president again, and yes, even getting elected.

Which brings me to Joe Rogan. Yes, THAT Joe Rogan.

The notorious, wildly famous and influential podcast host of The Joe Rogan Experience brings in an impressive average of over eleven million listeners per episode.

Recently the internet started going crazy after a rumor started by a fake Twitter account blasted out that he was finally going to sit down with the ex-president.

Now, I would not describe myself as a Rogan-acolyte, but I do listen to episodes when I find his guests compelling and newsworthy (I tend to gravitate towards the writers and commentators as opposed to the UFC fighters), but I would be extremely interested in an interview between these two men, as would the rest of our country and media. 

There was a lot of excitement at the idea of Rogan interviewing Trump in an unfiltered and uncensored way, without any political bias that comes from mainstream journalists on both sides of the aisle. 

Both Trump’s supporters and his critics should be clamoring for this interview.

It would be a cultural moment that could not be missed and the unhinged meltdown from the likes of CNN anchors and Twitter’s blue checkmarks would be something to see.

The public would get an unprecedented sense of Trump’s current thinking, which is something that we are not able to understand during a rambling, off-the-cuff Fox News interview conducted over the phone.

We would have a better understanding of where his head is at and if I should start looking to buy a home in the United Kingdom. (I am only half-joking about leaving the country if Trump is elected president again.)

But more importantly, it would be a powerful act in defense of free speech and a finger in the eye of cancel culture bullies, who think they can silence everyone they disagree with.

That is why I was disappointed to hear Rogan come out this week and confirm that he will not be having Trump on as a guest.

We can't ever forget or lose sight of the fact that Trump represents the thinking of a huge number of Americans.

In fact, Rogan claims he has twice turned down Trump requests to appear on his show.

He and Trump actually have a lot in common.

They are both as controversial as they are popular with a legion of cult-like fans who worship and follow their every move.

Rogan’s podcast is also one of the last truly uncensored and un-cancellable spaces for conversations.

He is often wrapped up in controversy but his following, much like J.K. Rowling’s and Dave Chappelle’s, is so massive that the rage mobs are unable to take him out or remove him from his platform.

This is a very sacred commodity during a time when speech and thought is being censored by Big Tech, corporate media and politicians at what can only be described as an alarmingly fascist rate.

The direction we are headed is not only dangerous but anti-American.

Now, no one wishes Trump would evaporate into thin air more than I do, but I am also a fierce advocate for free speech.

We can’t ever forget or lose sight of the fact that Trump represents the thinking of a huge number of Americans.

A huge number of Americans who follow his every move and still feel that he will lead them to the promised land and away from Joe Biden’s revival of the 1970s Carter administration.

These Americans are not ‘deplorables’ as Hillary Clinton infamously labeled them.

They are our countrymen and countrywomen. They deserve our respect and our attention, just as much as any other citizen of our great nation. Democracy doesn’t work unless we listen to one another.

Also, maybe more interestingly, it would show to the world how ridiculous and abjectly stupid and dangerous cancel culture is.

Both Rogan and Trump have been targeted for de-platforming, but they are very different people – with very different views.

While silencing people makes the world more dull, it certainly doesn’t make it more safe or more functional.

Banning Trump from Twitter has not silenced him or removed him from the political battlefield.

Forcing Joe Rogan to remove old podcasts from his service has not changed him – he’s still producing controversial content.

A 3-hour long Rogan/Trump podcast would break all those whiny woke internet snowflakes once and for all.

This sit down would prove once and for all that free speech is not the threat to democracy – censorship is.

The Earth will keep spinning. The sun will still rise the next day.

The real power in a democracy comes from its people, and the more we know the more powerful we are.

The suppression of voices only leads to conspiracy, distrust and division.

Rogan may have his reasons for avoiding a Trump interview and Trump may not even agree to appear on the show, but it would be good for America.

Come on Joe, I’ve never known you not to take on a controversial challenge, why stop now with Trump?
