Before the COVID-19 pandemic, podcaster Joe Rogan thought of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in a positive light. He said, “I was like he’s a handsome guy. Seems sweet. Good looking guy, confident, good talker. And during the pandemic, I’m like, ‘Oh, you’re a f***ing dictator. Oh, you don’t like criticism. You’re trying to shut down criticism by saying all your critics are misogynists and racists.'” But after the government overreach that followed the pandemic, Rogan’s opinion drastically changed.
Discussing the current climate in Canada with comedian Tom Segura, Rogan declared, “Canada is communist. They’re f***ed. They’re f***ed.” The host added, “He’s gross, he’s a sketchy guy. He’s got some shaky f***ing deals. Like why do you want everyone to get injected every four months? They don’t need that anymore. Like what are we doing?”
During the protest over the COVID-19 drug, Prime Minister Trudeau claimed those who opposed the shot were only “a small fringe element in the country”. It wasn’t long after that the Prime Minister evacuated for his safety when protestors overtook the city.
As for Joe Rogan, he continued to criticize the Canadian government, pointing to how international travelers aren’t allowed to enter the country unless they are deemed “fully vaccinated”.
According to Canada’s website, it reads:
“Unless you qualify as a fully vaccinated traveler, you cannot enter Canada for reasons such as:
- spending time at a seasonal home or cottage
- visiting an immediate or extended family member, if age 18 or over
- attending a Canadian educational institution as an international student if age 18 or over
- childcare for your relatives
- a personal or casual visit
- air or rail crew, medical worker, transportation, or sports
- tourism, fishing, entertainment or leisure”
Not being the first time Joe Rogan has targeted Trudeau, last month, he slammed the Prime Minister over gun control. “He said you don’t have the right in Canada to own a gun to protect your life. It is one of the most wild things I’ve ever seen anybody say, because first of all, I don’t believe it’s true.”
Rogan’s statement followed Trudeau saying, “We have a culture where the difference is guns can be used for hunting or for sport shooting in Canada, and there are lots of gun owners and they’re mostly law respecting and law-abiding, but you can’t use a gun for self-protection in Canada.”
