It’s easy to feel voiceless in a country where Russian hackers just might control our Democratic election system but luckily, we’ve got dudes like Seth Rogen to speak for us.
On Monday night, Rogen told Stephen Colbert that he sent the eldest Trump offspring a direct message on Twitter after finding out Trump Jr. was following him.
Rogen’s message implored the president’s boy to stop his father from, essentially, ruining everything for America and the world:
Hey man! It’s Seth. Your father is trying to discredit our media, collude with Russia, and destroy the environment. It would be super cool of you to be like ‘yo, dad, why don’t you stop all this and go back to being just a guy on TV.’ The majority of the world would be pretty psyched. Thanks!!!
Of course, if Rogen had watched Chelsea Handler’s recent interview with Sarah Silverman, he would know that direct messaging one of the president’s children is a largely ineffective route to world peace or, really, anything. Radio silence is the name of Ivanka’s game and it seems that Trump Jr. is following his sister’s lead.
Apparently inspired, Stephen Colbert also slid into Trump Jr.’s DMs with a message of his own. He wrote:
Sup? Hanging with @sethrogen. Why don’t you return his DMs? How about we all chill together and burn one? Don’t tell @heyjamesfranco.
It takes a man seriously intent upon contributing to the destruction of this country to ignore an invitation like that.
I guess the important thing is that celebrities are trying.
