Joe Rogan says Americans can look forward to a “Weekend at Bernie’s”-type presidency if Joseph R. Biden is elected in November.

The podcasting star sat down with former CIA covert operations officer Mike Baker this week for a wide-ranging interview when the Democrat’s mental health came up.

Mr. Rogan says he doesn’t believe early polls showing Mr. Biden with a commanding lead, given media bias and the 77-year-old’s recent public showings.

“The dumbest people in the world are the ones who answer polls,” Mr. Rogan said Tuesday. “So out of the dumbest people in the world with nothing to do, most of them are picking Biden. Or more of them are picking Biden, but says who? Says all of the media outlets that want Trump to lose? How do we know? How do we know if they’re being accurate?”

The host continued by saying, in short, that the election may come down to the percentage of people who are willing to vote for Mr. Biden knowing that his vice president would be the de facto commander in chief.

“I believe there’s a large group of people that are very uncomfortable with Donald Trump being the president. I absolutely believe that,” Mr. Rogan said. “I believe that there’s also a large group of people that are very uncomfortable with a man who seems to be mentally compromised, winning the election, and doing so hiding. I mean, the guy’s never — he was just at a thing the other day and he forgot where he was.”

Mr. Baker said “all bets are off” until Mr. Biden finally names his running mate.

“That VP is gonna have a bucket of lube and she’s gonna dunk it in there and stuff his hand up his ass. She’s gonna be working him like ‘Weekend at Bernie’s,’” Mr. Rogan added, a reference to the 1989 comedy about two men trying to convince others that their murdered boss was still alive.

Mr. Biden and his surrogates have insisted for months that he has not suffered any cognitive decline in recent years.

“That’s like saying before you got on this program, you’re taking a test whether you’re taking cocaine or not,” Mr. Biden said when asked about his mental health during a recent “CBS This Morning” interview with reporter Errol Barnett. “What do you think, huh? Are you a junkie?
