The country’s top podcaster, Joe Rogan, recently roasted White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre with 4 simple words: “F***ing everybody hates you.”
Rogan currently averages around 11 million viewers and reaches far more Americans than left-wing cable networks like CNN and MSNBC — combined.
He accused Jean-Pierre of “incredible gaslighting.” WATCH:
Speaking to comedian Duncan Trussell, Rogan said, “If you’re a lawyer, your job is not to make a judgment in your head. ‘I think maybe this guy’s lying and maybe he did it.’ Your judgment is to try to get your client off.”
“And that’s why a lot of defense attorneys, man, that’s a slippery f***ing weird world to be in,” he continued. “Well, don’t you think it’s the same way in the government?”
“If you’re that poor lady who’s the White House press secretary?” Rogan asked. “It’s the f***ing worst job. It’s the worst job. You get all the hate of the president and none of the power. Like f***ing everybody hates you.”

Rogan highlighted the incident where President Joe Biden looked for a deceased congresswoman, Rep. Jackie Walorski (R-IN), at a recent White House event, asking, “Where’s Jackie?”
Jean-Pierre responded to the incident by claiming that Biden was looking for the deceased congresswoman because she was “top of mind,” and that it had nothing to do with any cognitive issue.
“’Top of mind. She was top of mind.’ I mean, it was really like the — it was like for what she had to work with, it was some incredible gaslighting,” Rogan said. “Top of mind’s a good one because it’s nonsense.”
Trussell suggested that Jean-Pierre was not able to come up with an excuse like “top of mind” on her own and that she had outside help in defending the president.
“I think that exactly is probably what happens,” Rogan agreed. “There’s probably some consultation on what’s the best phrasing … So that’s her job, just like a defense attorney. It’s their job to try to get their client off. That’s her job.”
