Aaron Rodgers is apparently up for the debate, or at least up for listening to it.

Using his Instagram account (@aaronrodgers12), the future Hall-of-Fame quarterback hinted that he would like to see foils Robert F. Kennedy Jr. and Dr. Peter Hotez exchange ideas during an episode of the Joe Rogan Experience podcast.

Early on June 20, Rodgers, who was a featured JRE guest last summer, shared an Instagram "reel" that showed Hotez admitting to unhealthy eating habits during a prior appearance on Rogan's show. The shared post contained a text overlay that read "@robertfkennedyjr would mop this bum."

Kennedy, who received social media support from Rodgers when he launched his 2024 presidential campaign earlier this spring, sat down for a 3+ hour recorded conversation with Rogan on JRE Episode #1999, which was published on June 15.

During the show, Kennedy refutes a number of the claims made by Hotez over the course of the pandemic. Hotez's statements about COVID vaccine efficacy and potential side effects have proven to be inaccurate and somewhat deceiving.

Rogan suggested a debate between Kennedy and Hotez discussing their points of contention on his show with "no time limit." Rogan also promised to donate $100K to a charity of Hotez's choice should he agree to the proposal.

While Kennedy welcomes the chance for conversation, Hotez has publicly refused the invitation.

Apparently, Rodgers, who spoke in favor of vaccine choice during his memorable appearance on the podcast, would like to see Hotez attempt to defend the claim that Kennedy is disseminating misinformation.

Hotez likely resembles the "stooge" that Rodgers referred to during his JRE appearance.

“Day three of training camp they sent this stooge in and he showed these slides of what your vaccination percentage was as a team," said Rodgers last summer. "What are you compared to the rest of the league? And I started asking him question about liability. ‘Oh, I’m not a lawyer.'”

Rodgers, who claimed to have "mopped the floor" with the "stooge," continued to recount the incident.

"OK, cool, but you’re in here talking about these different things and you don’t talk about anybody’s personal health issues," said Rodgers. "There’s zero exemptions, you took out religious exemptions, you took out PEG exemptions, you took out anybody’s ability to have an opinion of I don’t want to do this.”

Maybe Rogan can get Rodgers to moderate the debate between RFK and Hotez? That could be a ratings bonanza in the making.

Jesus..  World is going nuts.  Kennedy is mentally ill. 

Luckily idgaf that Rodgers is a little loopy.  He can say what he wants obviously but I'll stick to caring about his qb play.

So how come the stooge won't debate him? Last I checked it was up to 1.5 million for charity.

That's a lot of cheddar biscuits.

He's a doctor that has dedicated his life to saving lives.  He's not an orator like Kennedy who spews his rubbish daily.  Like Cuban said..  debate someone who specializes in debate.  The Rogan Bros harassing this poor doc is disgraceful.

How do you debate a crackpot who says 5G is causing cancer but when asked to explain says "that's beyond my expertise" or some such nonsense..  the maniac also thinks the water is causing frogs and young boys to catch the gay..   this world is getting cray.

You would think a doctor would donate the 1.5 million to help the vaccine injured.

If he debates that kook he legitimizes him.  It's a fools errand.

Believe me I don't care if you or anyone else takes any vaccine ever..   Thankfully the vast majority of my family and friends don't have those fears.  I just think the spreading of disinformation is a pretty cruel thing to do to people not smart enough to do their own research.  How many people needlessly lost their lives because of...  never mind.  I'll see my way out.

Well, fwiw, I have frogs galore in my backyard and while I'm happily married, I love @The Crusher long time, so there could be something to this.

Joe Rogan has basically become the media he supposedly hates.

Used to listen to him all the time.  Disagreed with a lot of stuff but who cares.  Last couple years though he's  become boring and says some wild stuff.  Covid screwed him and a lot of others up.

Have you heard RFK Jr talk?  He’s not much of an orator

Camp needs to open NOW because there are too many people with too much

time on their hands.  These threads are beyond stupid

True.  Dont usually fall for the bait but when I saw the clip of a couple maniacs harassing this doc at his house on father's day it pissed me off. 

Time for a break from the board.

I mean Rogan has had very highly regarded doctors on that disagree with Hoetz too (speaking specificallyabout covid). This is ths problem, people just hand wave things away and say the science is settled because it alligns with their beliefs. 

Hoetz was wrong about a number of his covid claims btw. 

Idk why people think a doctors word is infallible. 

Hotez himself disagrees with Hotez.

Why do people give a sh*t so much whether people get the vaccine?

Get it, don’t get it.

I don’t give a sh*t

Let’s get back to football

I agree that who cares about COVID vaccine... but Vaccines in general are only useful if everyone takes them.  Thats how the US eradicated Polio, small pox and Measles from the country (well until people stopped taking the vaccine)
