AUSTIN – Joe Rogan broke the internet when he announced his move to the Lone Star State amid the COVID-19 pandemic in July. Now, even Texas Governor Greg Abbott has welcomed the new Texan with open arms.

The comedian, UFC fight commentator and host of The Joe Rogan Experience podcast is again making waves in his new home -- this time -- alongside the governor of Texas.

Abbott posted pictures of him and Rogan together on Twitter, saying he fits “right in.”

“Joe Rogan now lives in Texas,” Abbott tweeted on Thursday. “Tonight he visited the Governor’s Mansion. He may be a new resident but you can tell he fits right in.”

Last month, Rogan had to cancel all scheduled podcasts and shut down operations after the show’s producer, Jamie Vernon, tested positive for COVID-19.

Since then, Rogan has continued operations and reports that Vernon is doing well following his infection and recovery.
