Joe Rogan declared that the only good reason to go on Twitter is to watch Democrats have epic meltdowns. Rogan also laid out the devastating repercussions of COVID-19 pandemic lockdowns in a recent episode of his massively popular podcast.
Thursday's episode of "The Joe Rogan Experience" welcomed an all-star lineup of comedians: Shane Gillis, Mark Normand, and Ari Shaffir. The four comedians discussed a myriad of topics, including the destructive ramifications of lockdowns.
Rogan said the government-imposed lockdowns "destroyed the economy" and "livelihoods."
"It destroyed work environments and social environments and hobbies and all these certain things that people want to do," Rogan explained.
"So the amount of people that are unhappy in comparison the amount of people whose lives are going well, in 2019 before it went back – it's probably in the millions," Rogan said during a discussion on why it seems like people are angrier now than previous years.
"The stack of unhappy people and the people who this really f***ed their life up," the podcast host noted. "It's just changed the tone of the country. The whole country feels different."
Shaffir added how the lockdowns forced everyone to stay at home – which led to everyone spending more time online.
"Yeah, that online thing that riles you up, it's just you're more exposed to it," Shaffir said of people being in lockdown and having more access to the toxicity of social media.
Rogan also talked about the negatives of social media, especially Twitter.
“There’s some people, even comics, that I follow on Twitter where I just go to check their feed just to watch mental illness just spray its diarrhea all over the screen,” Rogan stated. "It's wild to watch people."
"One guy that I'm friends with, he's a nice guy, but he's the most Democrat supporting — it's like someone who’s a Pirates fan – Pittsburg Pirates. And he’s like, ah, 'Let’s f***ing go, Pirates!' The whole thing is, 'Go Democrats!'"
Gillis mockingly added, "They’ll be like, 'Look at Biden kicking a** this week!'"
Rogan jokingly tacked on, "He writes, 'Best. Period. Administration. Period. Ever.'"
Earlier this month, Rogan blasted his 9-year-old daughter's elementary school in California for pushing woke "anti-racist" ideals on young children.
