Seth Rogen Mocks Donald Trump Tweets
The president’s tweets have been ripe for comedic interpretation since he first announced his run for office in 2015, and even before. The messages are routinely mocked on the late-night shows, and a number of celebrities have even fired back with cracks and quips on Twitter. Now Rogen is getting into the mix.
On Monday, Trump tweeted, “Any negative polls are fake news, just like the CNN, ABC, NBC polls in the election.” Rogen posted a few hours later, “Any negative reviews to my movies are #FakeReviews.” The actor’s message scored 70,000 likes, although the president racked up 148,000 for his.
But on Tuesday, Rogen was inspired again. After Trump tweeted, “I don’t know Putin, have no deals in Russia, and the haters are going crazy,” the movie star posted, “I DO NOT know James Franco. I have NO relationship with him, never worked with him, and the haters are going CRAZY.” Accompanying the tweet was a photo of Rogen and Franco in the nude from their time on “Naked And Afraid” (see below).
The longtime pals have collaborated on a number of projects, and Rogen’s point seemed to be how ridiculous it would be to deny their connection, much like Trump is denying his association with Putin, despite evidence suggesting ties. In fact, circulating on Twitter in the wake of his tweet is a video of Trump discussing their relationship back in 2013. See screengrabs of Rogen’s trolling tweets below.
