The more they persecute him, the stronger he becomes.
During Saturday’s Ultimate Fighting Championship 295 event in New York City, former President Donald Trump — accompanied by Kid Rock, Tucker Carlson and UFC President and CEO Dana White — made an iconic entrance into Madison Square Garden.
Comedian, podcaster and longtime UFC color commentator Joe Rogan described the scene as reminiscent of a superhero film.
Meanwhile, Rogan’s full commentary highlighted what he perceived as a massive energy shift in Trump’s favor.
“One of the wildest aspects of it is that every time they go after him he rises in the polls,” Rogan said to Mike Baker, a frequent guest on Rogan’s podcast.
Furthermore, from his vantage point as UFC color commentator, Rogan noticed a big difference. In the past, for instance, Trump received a mix of cheers and boos at UFC events. But no more.
“Now, when he walked out at Madison Square Garden [on Saturday], it was f***ing bananas. It was — the whole place was cheering,” Rogan said.
In fact, Nia Renee Hill — wife of comedian Bill Burr — made headlines as a lone dissenter who flipped two middle fingers in Trump’s direction. Otherwise, the former president felt the near-unanimous love.
“He’s on the screen, and I’m telling you, that 99 percent of them,” Rogan said before turning his head to the side and mumbling the lone exception: “Bill Burr’s wife.”
That brought laughter from Baker. In fact, Rogan called Hill’s double-fingered salute a “Bud Light moment,” suggesting that she or her husband might suffer the kind of backlash that has plagued Bud Light since its ill-advised woke partnership with transgender influencer Dylan Mulvaney in April.
“I’m telling you, the f***ing cheers of the crowd were nuts. I mean, it was overwhelmingly in support of him. And it lasted a loooong time,” he recalled.
Indeed, Rogan said the cheering continued for more than a minute.
We know that Trump’s enemies are terrified of this energy. Two sham impeachments and four sham indictments have only made him more popular. So they have to try something else.
The former president promised to “root out the communists, Marxists, fascists and the radical left thugs that live like vermin within the confines of our country that lie and steal and cheat on elections.”
TRUMP ON BIDEN: “He’s the most incompetent president we’ve ever had. He’s the worst president we’ve ever had. He’s a total crook.”

It’s so disgusting that good patriots were denied due process and are rotting in jail because of a completely made up narrative sold by these crisis actors. They should all be fired and those whose lies resulted in jail for innocent people should be jailed themselves. https://t.co/azuA1kzRU2
