The internet is buzzing about a clip from a Joe Rogan’s podcast several weeks ago, which just recently went viral.
In the clip in question, Rogan shares his views about the “Deep State”. The Deep State refers to a supposed cabal of unelected insiders that run Washington.
“Look, Trump is not a perfect guy,” Rogan said. “This is not a pro-Trump speech. But this thing he kept saying about the Deep State, it’s real,” Rogan added.
“It’s 100% real. The swamp is real. They’re f***ing real monsters, and they are really trying to get rid of him – by lying,” he continued.

“They were not spending their time trying to make the government work efficiently and make the country work better for everyone, to prop up the middle class – no. They were trying to regain power. And they got it,” Rogan added.
Nancy Pelosi As ‘Head Witch’
The clips are from an episode from the Joe Rogan Experience which aired on the 26th of November.
The episode featured Jocko Willink, a decorated retired Navy SEAL officer. Willink is a frequent guest on the podcast. Moreover, he is an author, known for books such as Extreme Ownership – How U.S. Navy Seals Lead and Win.
Both Rogan and Willink share a signature disdain for the political establishment. Moreover, both are not afraid to show that disdain in public. Therefore, their discussions quickly turned to criticism against some of the less popular political figures.
This includes House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, one of the most influential Democrat politicians. Rogan called the Speaker a “head witch” and questioned how she acquired her wealth.

Namely, Rogan accused Pelosi and her husband of benefiting from privileged information due to her position as House Speaker.
“If insider trading is illegal, how is it legal for her husband to make all these purchases of stock right before these giant deals came out that she negotiated?” Rogan asked.
On Wednesday, Pelosi rebuffed the suggestion that could address that problem. When asked whether she would support banning members of Congress from holding individual stocks, she replied with a resounding “no.”
“We’re a free-market economy,” Pelosi simply said. Congressmen “should be able to participate in that,” she added.
