Trump has agreed to Rogan’s offer, while Biden has yet to respond.


“I think President Trump has debased the office of the presidency. I think as a country we have lost a sense of decorum, and I don’t think a host like that should be someone who is given the honor, and I think it is an honor, to host a presidential debate,” Hostin said Tuesday.

“I am a traditionalist, as you know. I think that journalists should be hosting these debates,” she later added. “When you talk about a Joe Rogan, who has notably made misogynistic, racist, homophobic comments, that is someone that I have no interest in being given that kind of [stage].”


Rogan, who recently signed an exclusive deal with Spotify, reportedly earned $30 million in revenue last year with 190 million downloads per month for the "Joe Rogan Experience" podcast on YouTube, where he currently has more than 9.5 million subscribers.

Biden and Trump are scheduled to hold three debates in September and October, with moderators already announced.
