Presidential candidate Joe Biden has a history of gaffes, YouTube playlists mocking his “creepy Uncle Joe” nickname, and even allegations of plagiarism and fact-manipulation (to put it nicely). But it likely is not any of those problems that will be Biden’s biggest obstacle heading into the 2020 election.
Instead, Biden’s biggest problem will simply be the way he looks and talks in the next few months. Joe Rogan, a professional comedian, sports commentator and host of one of the most popular podcasts in America, has spent substantial time evaluating Biden and the way he is perceived. Rogan’s diagnosis isn’t good.
Rogan blames the Democrat party for not addressing these issues earlier. “You have to be able to call out shit that’s wrong on your side,” Rogan said. “And this is one of the problems that the Democratic Party is having right now with this Joe Biden guy.”
After analyzing Biden’s recent appearances, Rogan was appalled. “You guys gotta be able to call it out” Rogan said. “You can’t let this slide because everybody else sees it.”
When it comes to a head-to-head with President Donald Trump, Rogan was clear in his prediction. “Trump is going to eat him alive. He’s going to eat that guy alive,” Rogan said about Biden’s chances. “[Biden] can barely remember what he’s talking about while he’s talking.”
Rogan played several of Biden’s recent clips to illustrate his point.

In one of the segments, Biden said “We have to take care of the cure. That will make the problem worse, no matter what. No matter what.”
Rogan was unimpressed.
“He doesn’t know what he’s talking about when he’s talking,” said Rogan. “I’m looking at this like a medical condition.”
“That’s not a normal way to communicate unless he’s high as f—,” Rogan said.”I don’t think that’s what it is. He’s very old. He doesn’t look good, either, and they got makeup on him. His skin is all pulled tight like a lizard.”
