Rogan says the 2020 election was rigged by the media: 'It's wild sh** and no one cares'

Joe Rogan is unconvinced that the 2020 presidential election was rigged per se, but is certain the liberal corporate media meddled to guarantee a particular outcome.

In the July 4 episode of "The Joe Rogan Experience," the titular podcaster, joined by comedian Tom Segura, broached the subject of possible voter fraud in both recent and forthcoming elections after discussing which among the various controversial remarks made by Roseanne Barr on Theo Von's recent "This Past Weekend" podcast got it yanked from YouTube.

Barr had questioned how President Joe Biden could have won the 2020 election with "the most votes of any presidential candidate in history" while also winning a record-low number of counties.

"I don't know if there was some shenanigans with the election. I guarantee you it wasn't zero percent," said Rogan. "How much voter fraud was there? It's never zero."

In pursuit of greater clarity, Rogan appealed to a USA Today "fact-check," which stated, "With over 81 million votes, Biden received the most votes of any presidential candidate in history. It is also true that he won a record-low number of counties – but counties vary by population size, from those with a few hundred people to others with millions of residents, so county wins don't correlate with the popular vote."

This appeared to momentarily assuage the host's concerns, but then he called to mind a recent security assessment of Georgia's Dominion voting machines that allegedly found "dangerous vulnerabilities," then pulled up a CNN report noting the software won't be updated until after the 2024 election.

While still reluctant to conclude the election was meaningfully steered one way or the other by possible hackers or other rogue actors, Rogan stated that even if the 2020 election wasn't rigged in the manner suggested by former President Donald Trump, "for sure it was rigged by the media. For sure."

"Just the Hunter Biden laptop case and the Russia collusion case — just those two things, just those two narratives that they knew were not true, that they pushed out in front of everybody and that we know ... had to do with trying to get rid of Trump," said Rogan.

Segura chimed in, "One overreporting and one underreporting."

"That is, in many ways ... that's manipulation. It's manipulation of a public narrative. It's manipulation of what the people think is real and not real," said Rogan. "Everybody thought he was in collusion with Russia. It's what everybody thought."

The complete Durham Report released in May revealed that the FBI's Russian collusion investigation into then-candidate Trump was from the get-go a stitch-up predicated upon a false claim, originally approved and advanced by failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

Durham indicated the FBI “did not and could not corroborate any of the substantive allegations” made in the infamous Steele dossier — allegations long laundered with other baseless claims by the liberal media and top Democrats, resulting in some outfits receiving once-esteemed awards.

Rogan cited Fox News as the only major mainstream media outlet that didn't overwhelmingly push the false narrative, adding that "everybody else was pushing it."

"It was sold hard," said Segura.

"And it was not true," added Rogan. "And it's proven not true. And there's the Hunter Biden laptop thing, which they knew was true and they said wasn't true. ... They stopped people from sharing it on social media. They stopped people from sharing it on Twitter. Zuckerberg sat in that very chair and said the FBI contacted Facebook and told them it was 'Russian disinformation.'"

"It's wild sh** and no one cares," concluded the host. "No one's up in arms. No one's freaking out. 'Cause that is a way that you're gonna rig an election without rigging an election. Whether you like [Trump] or not, we have to follow the rules. We have to. And if we don't follow the rules 'cause you don't like somebody and we break the law because we don't like somebody, we don't want them to win, that's banana republic sh**."

That the media, big tech, and the administrative state apparently conspired against Trump to prevent him from remaining in office and did so without consequence is "scary," said Rogan, adding the intelligence community ultimately made good on Democratic Sen. Chuck Schumer's threat — that "they have six ways from Sunday at getting back at you."

Rogan likened this apparent totalitarian reflex to that wielded online to silence dissenting voices, calling it "dangerous."
