We’re back with a new Brew. As the NBA trade deadline looming, we’re left wondering if these are the final days in Philadelphia for Ben Simmons? Will James Harden get traded? What does Daryl Morey have up his sleeves? Joe Rogan is a racist. The NHL All-Star game was held in Las Vegas on Saturday night and a Flyer took home the MVP honors. Let’s get right to it. It’s Brew time!
How soft is Ben Simmons?

Lord help me. I’m watching the @nfl Pro Bowl and I remember when we were so proud and appreciative of that accolade. We went to Hawaii to prove we were more than worthy so we competed at practice and in the game. I wanted u to know that PRIME was PRIME ! What Happened & When ?

Joe Rogan is a racist pig
Rogan explaining how he didn’t mean anything racist by saying a Black neighborhood in Philly was like “Planet of the Apes,” but just meant that it was like Africa, is really something. https://t.co/QrzrUxUoP0
— Tim Marchman (@timmarchman) February 5, 2022
Here’s the clip
Joe Rogan says this clip of him referring to a movie theater full of Black people as “Planet of the Apes,” was taken out of context because afterwards he talked about what a good experience it was.

Still think Rogan isn’t a racist?
Some people are now trying to claim Joe Rogan never said the N word.
Watch for yourself.
Note: Different clothes, different days, different locations.
I had my editor bleep out the actual word but there are many unedited versions floating around Twitter. pic.twitter.com/P7yMII8G3P

Jim Jordan is hiding something, per usual…
Jordan has tended to say or imply that he only spoke with Trump on Jan. 6 after the attack on the Capitol. It turns out they spoke for ten minutes that morning. Why has Jim Jordan wanted to pretend that pre-attack call didn’t happen?https://t.co/t1kPAdPbEx
