UFC commentator Joe Rogan has one of the most followed podcasts in the world where he recently had Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers on the deck. While conversing with the NFL great the Spotify podcast host discussed the 44th President of the United States, Barack Obama.

Rogan said about Obama, “He was the best we had to offer, in terms of like what he represented. But you know still, there are a lot of people that didn’t appreciate him. You know, he experienced a lot of racism. He experienced a lot of unjust hate.”

“I remember when Fox News was criticizing him because he wore a tan suit,” said Rogan.

Rodgers then added, “Oh, he can’t do that.”

While Rogan submitted the suit was ‘beautiful’, A-Rod said, “It’s gotta be blue, and it’s gotta be a red tie or a blue tie, right? That’s it.”

Further, the Packers star mentioned, “You are not gonna make everybody happy, man.”

Joe Rogan offered that the position of President attracts criticism. Thus, everyone – no matter how good they are – would go through objection.
