    Rogan, who is famous for his harsh statements, said that there is "something wrong" with the former vice president and expressed doubt that he would last through the three 1.5-hour debates scheduled ahead of the November election.

    President Donald Trump has agreed to participate in a debate with Joe Biden with podcast host Joe Rogan as a moderator.

    Trump was replying to a tweet posted by UFC fighter Tim Kennedy, who said that during his latest podcast with Rogan, the latter offered to moderate a debate between the two presidential candidates.

    Netizens rushed to comment on the post, divided into two camps: some of them were excited about the possibility, while others showed less enthusiasm.

    Many questioned Biden's ability to endure lengthy debates, apparently hinting at media reports about him losing his mental acuity and his frequent gaffes when speaking in public.

    Other users expressed doubt as to whether Rogan, a former UFC commentator, would be good at moderating political debates.

    In a podcast with Kennedy, Rogan offered a four-hour live stream with Trump and Biden so that "no one can edit it", adding, "I don't think Biden can handle that. I think Biden is — people get mad at me for saying this — I think there’s something wrong".
