Podcast host Joe Rogan called former President Donald Trump a “man-baby” last week as their apparent feud escalates, Mediaite reports.
Comedian Tom Segura commented on Trump’s energy during the episode.
“The thing that is incredible about that guy is that, you know, I’m saying even when you watch him as president, he was full of fucking energy — full of it every day. And they said he slept like four hours a night. He’s one of those people,” Segura said.
“He’s on Adderall,” Rogan suggested. “Do you think he’s on Adderall?”
“Yes, I do — only because there were multiple people who used to work on The Apprentice that were like, ‘He was fucking gassed up for shoots,'” Segura said.
“Really?” asked Rogan.
“Yeah. Cause he has trouble reading. He doesn’t — he would struggle to read prompter or script when he was just, uh, let’s say ‘sober.’ So they would give him that and he would dial in more on reading,” Segura said.
Segura said Trump stayed the same when he became president.
“He would get bored at the CIA briefing in the mornings. He would like, ‘I don’t wanna read that,’” he said.
“I heard they would put his name in briefings multiple times to keep him interested,” Rogan said.
Jared Kushner “came up with a formula to keep him engaged — he obviously was close to him and knew him well and the formula was um, like two good, one bad,” Segura said. “So if they were gonna give him bad news … you start with some good news. So they go, ‘This is going well, everybody’s thrilled with you about this. Here’s a bad thing. Also people love you for this.'”
“Of course!” Rogan declared, “He’s a man baby.”
“He’s a fucking toddler,” Segura said.
Rogan boycotts Trump:
The segment came after Rogan revealed earlier this month that he repeatedly refused to interview Trump on his show.
“I’m not a Trump supporter in any way, shape or form. I’ve had the opportunity to have him on my show more than once. I’ve said no, every time,” Rogan said. “I don’t want to help him. I’m not interested in helping him.”
“When people look back historically about the division in this country, he’s such a polarizing figure that so many people felt like they could abandon their own ethics and morals and principles just to attack him and anybody who supports him because he is an existential threat to democracy itself,” he added.
