Joe Rogan fans have created a petition for the UFC commentator to moderate the 2020 presidential debate.
A Change.org petition was created by Ashton Stowell, who says, “We are petitioning for the Commission on the Presidential Debates to elect Joe Rogan as one of the moderators for the 2020 Presidential Debate.”
He continues to say he believes “this would be a great decision.” and lists multiple reasons why he should be the official moderator for the presidential debate.
He explains, “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. Joe Rogan has experience with interviewing both progressive and conservative thinkers. Figures such as Andrew Yang (D), Tulsi Gabbard (D), Kyle Kulinski (D), Gary Johnson (L), Benjamin Shapiro (R), and Candace Owens (R), have all appeared on The Joe Rogan Experience program.”
Ashton claims, “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.”
The petition has almost 60,000 signatures and many are supporting the decision without voting by commenting their desire to see him lead the moderation of the debate in 2020. One supporter said, “We need a new way of holding debates and Joe’s interview with Bernie Sanders [sheds] light on how it ought be done,”
Another said, “Joe Rogan will keep control of the debate and will foster the most fair and unbiased discussion, compared to ANY of the choices from a mainstream media outlet,”
Joe hasn’t yet responded to the petition.
