In a recent episode of his popular podcast, Joe Rogan, the renowned comedian and fight commentator, found himself in a discussion about a conspiracy theory involving President Joe Biden.

The theory, initially proposed by fellow podcaster Patrick Bet-David, suggests that the President has been replaced by a body double wearing a mask. According to Mediaite, Rogan's reaction to this theory was one of skepticism, despite his reputation for entertaining conspiracy theories.

Rogan's guest on the podcast was author and former Navy SEAL Jack Carr, who was promoting his new book. During their conversation, Rogan brought up the conspiracy theory, explaining to Carr, "He thinks it’s not really Biden, that it’s someone pretending to be Biden who has a mask on because he was talking very clearly." This theory was previously discussed by Bet-David on his own show, where he compared different videos of the President and pointed out inconsistencies in his clarity of speech.

Despite the intrigue surrounding the theory, Rogan was quick to dismiss it as absurd. He argued that the differences in Biden's appearance, specifically his skin color, were likely due to lighting conditions during the interview. Rogan stated, "The shadows to me look like studio lighting where you have multiple cameras, you have multiple lights coming from a bunch of different angles… that’s why it looks weird." Carr concurred, noting that Biden's appearance did indeed seem unusual.

However, Rogan did not entirely dismiss the conspiracy theory. He suggested that while a human mask might be plausible, the idea of altering someone's voice to such an extent would likely require advanced AI technology and the complicity of numerous individuals. "That requires so many people to be in on it, including the person being interviewed, the person interviewing Biden, all the people who are watching," Rogan said. "There’s a lot of loose ends there."

Carr agreed, pointing out the inherent flaws in such a complex conspiracy. "That’s where a lot of these things fall apart," he responded. Rogan further emphasized the improbability of the theory, noting that it would require the silence of many individuals, including likely Republican supporters. Carr concluded the discussion with a quote from Benjamin Franklin: "Three people can keep a secret if two of them are dead."

While Rogan's podcast often delves into controversial topics, this particular conspiracy theory appears to have been a step too far, even for him. Despite his willingness to entertain unconventional ideas, Rogan's skepticism towards this theory underscores the importance of critical thinking and discernment in the face of such claims.
