There’s a fake email allegedly from former President Donald Trump going viral that bashed podcaster ‘Lyin’ Joe Rogan” and ‘Gutless Ron DeSantis.”
In other words, catnip for libs:
Woke up to a helluva story unfolding on Twitter: Trump, in a Save America email last night, savaged DeSantis by name as “gutless.” Lots of people shared it. But neither I nor others got the email. I checked w/Trump’s team & they said it’s fake

Here’s what the fake email says:
Statement by Donald J. Trump, 45th President of the United States of America
Hearing that Lyin’ Joe Rogan doesn’t want me on his podcast. He said he was asked more than once to have me on. LIES! He asked ME many times but I said no. He would be lucky to have America’s greatest President as a guest! It would be record-setting and a smart business move for Spotify. Lyin’ Joe would rather have second rate President like Gutless Ron DeSantis on his LOW RATED show.
The original is still up with over 10,000 likes, and counting:

Too good to check!
12 hours later, there are still way too many folks retweeting this as if it is real. It is not. https://t.co/EPz3J3XGzO

The fake email is, however, in response to comments made by Joe Rogan where he said he’s refused to interview Trump multiple times:
Wow: Joe Rogan just revealed he has rejected Trump’s interview requests multiple times. “I don’t want to help him. I’m not interested in helping him.” Rogan also referred to Trump as “an existential threat to democracy itself.” More from @justinbaragona: https://t.co/ZXDlWCwpeE

Joe Rogan says he has turned down multiple offers to have Donald Trump on his podcast:

And Rogan did praise DeSantis last week:
Joe Rogan: “I think [Gov.] Ron DeSantis would work as a good president … What he’s done for Florida has been admirable.” pic.twitter.com/CGR8yTMlVr

But, sorry libs. No reaction from Trump, at least not yet.
