As a well-known comedian and podcaster, Joe Rogan recently criticized Democratic Vice President Kamala Harris for her anti-marijuana stance, which is uncool to most Democrats and not anything to laugh at given Harris’ history of behavior while in office.
According to a 2021 Fox News report, Harris is notorious for being a wildly corrupt politician who frequently abused her position when she served as California’s attorney general:
“Recent statements and court documents indicate that when Vice President Kamala Harris was Attorney General of California, her office colluded with prominent abortion providers as she pursued a criminal case against pro-life journalist David Daleiden, his attorneys argue.
As attorney general, Harris took the unprecedented step of charging Daleiden with violating a state eavesdropping law. Part of the investigation entailed seizing a variety of materials from Daleiden’s apartment — including then-unreleased undercover video footage of Planned Parenthood.
Daleiden’s attorneys argue that one of Harris’ appointees, Deputy Attorney General Johnette Jauron, effectively admitted in May 2021 that she abused the powers of her office by giving the National Abortion Federation (NAF) that footage and other materials seized during a raid in 2016 from Daleiden’s apartment as part of Harris’ criminal investigation. By that time, NAF was embroiled in a civil suit against Daleiden.”
And while that is not humorous, Rogan found a way to make jokes about Harris.
The fact that Rogan is a comedian and is ready to make people laugh about Harris and her work performance may not be widely known. Rogan displayed a recently unveiled poster for a stand-up comedy gig that looks like it will be a lot of fun.
As most people are aware, Harris has a reputation as a “pot head” who imposes tight limitations and penalties on others for marijuana usage. In the poster, Rogan is pictured smoking a joint while Harris, dressed as a police officer, is laughing as she places Rogan under arrest.
According to the Dailywire,“A pin on Harris’ uniform states: “FREE BRITTNEY GRINER,” a WNBA player sentenced to several years in prison in Russia on drug charges.”
The event is scheduled for September 16, 2022, at the Schottenstein Center in Columbus, Ohio.
“Columbus, Ohio! I’m coming in hot!” , Rogan said in the caption of the photo.
Early in August, Harris came under fire for a remark she had made, in which she said that, with Griner’s imprisonment, “Russia continues its wrongful detention of Brittney Griner.” The Biden administration reportedly considered exchanging a known Russian terrorist for Griner after she admitted guilt to the accusations.
In a recent episode of his program “The Joe Rogan Experience,” which included NFL quarterback Aaron Rodgers as a guest, Rogan, who is on a roll, again attacked Harris.
“That’s why the hypocrisy about the Brittney Griner situation was so egregious in this country,” he stated. “Where Kamala Harris is talking about how horrible it is that Brittney Griner is in jail. Well, [Harris] put people in jail. [Harris] did. Thousands of people in jail for marijuana. Yeah, it’s crazy.”
"You put people in jail. You did."

According to The Signal:
Rogan continued by lambasting the Biden-Harris administration for not following through on apparent campaign promises involving drug offenses.
“How come you guys didn’t exonerate people that were in jail for marijuana when you said you were going to? They said that they were going to make marijuana federally legal,” Rogan said. “They said they were going to exonerate prisoners who were in jail for non-violent drug offenses. This is what they said. None of that has happened.”
In February 2021, Biden said that he would support the decriminalization of marijuana and let states make their own laws regarding the drug. Biden has also promised to use his clemency powers to ease the sentences of certain non-violent drug offenders.

The poster references Harris’ time as San Francisco district attorney, where she “oversaw more than 1,900 marijuana convictions,” The Mercury News reported. “Her prosecutors appear to have convicted people on marijuana charges at a higher rate than under her predecessor, based on data about marijuana arrests in the city.” CONTINUE READING…
