2016 Election Night Special with Bill Burr et. al.
Published by marco on
On the evening of the 2016 U.S. presidential election, Joe Rogan held his podcast with a dozen of his friends to discuss the incoming results for four hours. I’d listened to the podcast at the time, but found the following video, which includes only highlights, mostly of Bill Burr working his unique magic.
My favorite part is at the 7:00 mark, where Bill Burr described the magnitude of Trump’s accomplishments relative to other sporting victories:
“I gotta tell you something. Dude, if Trump wins, this is the…him just winning the nominee blows away anything I’ve ever seen in sports. The US beating the Russians; it just all pales in comparison.
“This is a reality-TV-show star who got mad at a breakfast because Obama trashed him. “Oh, I’ll fucking do it”. He’s gonna do it! That’s fucking amazing. Like it or not, that is some…you can’t talk shit in the room with that guy.
“[Speaking as another guy] Yo, one time, this guy stepped to me in the bar, dude, I…
“[interrupting, as Trump] No, dude, fuck you. One time the president was giving me shit and I said “Oh yeah? I’ll have your fucking job in two years. And I did it. I fucking did it.”
“Un-fucking-real, man. I don’t like his policies, but you got to respect that. Jesus.”
This was an ad-hoc take on something he said on his podcast a few weeks earlier:
“The Giants beating the undefeated Patriots, that’s all a joke. The star of a reality show is going to run the country. The guy who decided if Bret Michaels or Cyndi Lauper would make a better CEO for a company that doesn’t exist is going to be running stuff. (Emphasis added.)”
