During a recent episode of “The Joe Rogan Experience,” podcast host Joe Rogan was left stunned when his guest comedian Sam Tripoli brought up a bizarre conspiracy theory that has been shared widely online linking Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to the late communist dictator Fidel Castro.
Rogan made it clear that he was just humoring the far-fetched rumor that Fidel Castro is actually Justin Trudeau’s biological father.
“Okay, just for funsies. This is just funsies, let’s google and look at the two of them together,” he said of Trudeau and Castro.
When Tripoli pointed out several side-by-side images, Rogan repeatedly exclaimed over the “wild” physical similarities between the two men.
“Yeah, that’s wild, that’s wild, that is f***king wild,” he laughed.
“Hey bro, you need a 23andMe (DNA genetic test) right away, sir!” Rogan added. “It’s wild how close he looks … if I was the father I’d be f***ing suspicious as sh*t.”
The whole crazy rumor, which has been rated “false” in an AP fact-check, was started when Castro’s oldest son, Fidelito, died in 2018 and allegedly left a suicide note in which he referred to Justin Trudeau as his half-brother. However, according to AP News, “Trudeau was born a little more than nine months after the marriage of his parents and more than four years before Margaret made a much-publicized first trip to Cuba and met Fidel Castro. Margaret was 22 when she married the 51-year-old prime minister and was the subject of intense media scrutiny. Experts say it would have been impossible for an earlier visit to Cuba to go unnoticed.”
Rogan later compared photos of Justin and his father the late Canadian Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau.
“Hold on … he looks like his real dad, too,” Rogan stated. “Yeah, he looks a lot like his real dad. Dude, a lot. Okay, I give up. It’s just a coincidence,” he laughed.
On a recent episode of “The Rubin Report,” Dave Rubin shared a clip of Rogan and Tripoli reacting to the uncanny resemblance between Trudeau and Castro. Watch the video clip below. Can’t watch? Download the podcast here.
