Joe Rogan says Trump conviction is 'setting a precedent' for future administrations to pursue political prosecutions

"Imagine if, when Obama got into office, he decided to prosecute Dick Cheney and George Bush for crimes against humanity. Oh my God. Do you know how crazy that would be?"


During a conversation with comedian Tony Hinchcliffe on Wednesday, Joe Rogan expressed that he thought it was "scary" how far Democrats have been willing to go to levy their lawfare at Trump with the NYC conviction.  

"What's scary is how many Democrats are willing to allow this kind of stuff to happen. A lot of them are aware of it," Rogan told Hinchcliffe when talking about Trump's conviction. He then recounted seeing a viral video in which a woman said that she did not like Trump but said that the conviction was dangerous for the country. 

"Imagine if, when Obama got into office, he decided to prosecute Dick Cheney and George Bush for crimes against humanity. Oh, my God. Do you know how crazy that would be? You know how divided the country would be then? Well, that's the same thing kind of taking place now on a lesser scale, obviously, because it's not a war crime you're charging someone with, but you could."  

The podcast host then speculated what would be the consequences of prosecuting Obama as well as other politicians with war crimes without a fair trial.  

After Hinchcliffe responded, also taking issue with the situation going on in the country, Rogan said that the conviction of Trump would be setting a bad precedent for future administrations.  

"They don't even realize they're setting a precedent, and when another guy gets in office that's a Republican, you've got real problems now, kids. If the elections are real, that's how it usually goes," he said, later adding, "If you change the way people are allowed to go after political candidates, and you change the way you're allowed to silence and imprison your candidates, then we're like Mexico. We're just not assassinating people yet. We're like a third-world country. We're like a banana republic." 

Rogan, who has voted for Democrats in the past, has said that he is open to voting for Trump in the 2024 election.
