'Like hot gas in your face': Joe Rogan calls out Gavin Newsom, Seth MacFarlane for 'gaslighting' over Biden's economy

Comedian Joe Rogan called out Governor of California Gavin Newsom, as well as "Family Guy" creator Seth MacFarlane, for provoking the American public by claiming President Biden's old age is actually an advantage.

During an episode of "The Joe Rogan Experience" with TV personality Chris Williamson, Rogan remarked that surrogates and supporters of the Biden administration are "constantly trying to figure out a way to manipulate the reality of the world" to promote their preferred political policy.

"I mean we’ve seen some wild gaslighting the past couple weeks, talking about the economy. There’s so much gaslighting!" Rogan continued. "Gavin Newsom talking about how great Biden was, and the Democrats' record, and [Biden is] one of the greatest presidents, ever, full stop."

"It’s like hot gas in your face. It’s burning your lungs. ... Yeah, his age really is a superpower," Rogan sarcastically added.

Newsom recently told ABC's "This Week" that the economy is "booming," while inflation is "cooling," adding that Biden's economic strategies have been "things Republicans dreamed of but never delivered."

Rogan then mocked MacFarlane for his response to an article titled "Age matters. Which is why Biden's age is his superpower."

"This is something that's been rattling around in my brain for some time," MacFarlane wrote on X. He added that the article articulated his thoughts "better than [he] ever could."

Rogan called MacFarlane's comments "crazy."

"You’re talking about a guy who can’t speak. We all know you’re doing this; you’re gaslighting. And you’re doing it because you think that this is the good side and the bad side’s bad, and you do whatever you can to change the way people view things," he continued.

MacFarlane had recently appeared on "Real Time with Bill Maher" and insisted that Donald Trump and MAGA Republicans were far worse for the country than ideas like men competing against women in sports.

"That's why people vote for Trump," Maher told MacFarlane. "Because there's stuff like that on the left that people just go 'I know Trump's horrible but separating sports by sex makes perfect sense, and if you think it doesn't, you can't lead the country."

MacFarlane replied that the logic was akin to "cutting off your nose to spite your face."

"I'm just, I'm just giving you the answer to the question you're asking all night long," Maher chimed back. "Why do they vote for Donald Trump? It's not always because they like him. It's because stuff like that is kookier to people."

"It's kookier than trashing the Capitol?! What the f**k?!" a baffled MacFarlane replied.

Entrepreneur Patrick Bet-David had a reaction similar to Rogan's when he questioned Maher about Gavin Newsom's track record.

Maher explained that he enjoyed that Newsom has been a "winner" in his political dealings, but when Bet-David asked him for specific examples, the comedian was unable to express any details on what Newsom had done aside from "Oh, God, I don't know, he made it rain, okay, dude? It wasn't raining; now it's raining, so he's got my vote."
