Joe Rogan Tells Story About Trump’s Famous Handshake: “He Got Me Man!”

Joe Rogan, in a recent podcast interview with The Black Keys, shared a hilarious story of his handshakes with President Trump.

Rogan told the Blues duo that he had to prepare for Trump’s strong, firm handshake the first time he met with Trump.

The number one podcaster on Spotify shared that the first time he shook hands with Trump was in July of last year during UFC 290.

Rogan shared he anchored himself and “was ready” for Trump’s strong handshake.

The second time, however, Rogan was not so prepared.

Rogan told The Black Keys that the second time Trump’s handshake completely overtook him.

“He really fu**ing got me. He got me good, he got me good… I’m like ‘this motherfu**er learns from his mistakes.’” shared Rogan

Watch the moment Rogan said it here:

Per Bar Stool Sports:

We all know about the historic Donald Trump handshake. He’s gotten many international leaders with it.

While Trump was saying hi to everyone, he went over to Rogan….who was READY for his handshake. Here’s a video of a similar incident.

Next time Rogan shakes Trump’s hand, he needs to make sure he has a wider base and is closer to him. With his short arms, Rogan is going to have issues winning any handshake battle against Trump.

Newsweek covered the story, too:

A video of former President Donald Trump shaking hands with podcaster Joe Rogan has gone viral after the pair met at UFC 290 in Las Vegas on Saturday.

Trump was seated cageside at the T-Mobile Arena ahead of the fight night when he spotted Rogan, who has a popular podcast with The Joe Rogan Experience.

The meeting of Trump and Rogan seemed cordial, despite the podcaster calling out the former president in the past and making a number of pointed barbs during his many tirades across his podcasts.

The warm handshake and friendly exchange has now been viewed more than 1.4 million times on social media, after Steven Cheung shared it on Twitter.

Putin also wasn’t ready for Trump’s handshake:
