Having already spent part of last week attacking Big Bird and Sesame Street for allegedly spreading “government propaganda” about the importance of getting the COVID vaccine, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) is now speculating out loud that if and when the state of Texas secedes from the United States (which it cannot legally do), conspiracy theorist Joe Rogan might be a good choice to lead the Lone Star State as it’s “president.”

According to HuffPost, Cruz made his remarks during a forum at Texas A&M University:

“I’m not there yet. (But) if there comes a point where it’s hopeless, then I think we take NASA, we take the military, we take the oil.”

When he was asked if he would also take Joe Rogan as part of the “independent” state of Texas, Cruz responded:

“Joe Rogan, he might be president of Texas!”

A member of the audience asked if it was time for secession, Cruz replied:

“I’m not ready to give up on America. I love this country.”

What would change Cruz’s mind? He laid out what would prompt him to call for what has been labeled “Texit.”

“Look, if the Democrats end the filibuster … if they pack the Supreme Court, if they make D.C. a state, if they federalize elections and massively expand voter fraud, it may become hopeless. We’re not there yet.”


You may recall that Rogan contracted COVID-19 earlier this year. He has also said that the COVID booster shot President Joe Biden received was faked, though he failed to explain how the alleged fakery had been accomplished.

However, in May Rogan admitted he had been wrong about who should get the vaccine:

Rogan admitted in May he was a “fucking moron” and “not a respected source of information” after falsely claiming young and healthy people don’t need to be vaccinated. Hopefully, he knows more about running a nation state.

It’s hard to say who exactly is the bigger moron: Rogan or his hype man who just so happens to be a member of the U.S. Senate.
