Seth Rogen has an Alzheimer’s charity, and because of that, Mitt Romney invited him to “summit,” an invitation that Rogen happily accepted. While at the summit, however, he approached by two teenagers, who asked him for a photo, which he was glad to provide. After they took the photo, the two teens then asked if Rogen would take a picture with their father, who was approaching.
Their father was Paul Ryan.
It’s much, much better to hear Rogen’s reaction to this incident on last night’s Late Night with Stephen Colbert, basically he said: “I tensed up, and I didn’t know what to do. And he came over and just grabbed my hand and I’m shaking his hand… and he said, ‘Can I have a picture with you?’ …and I said, ‘No way, man!’”
“I said, ‘Furthermore, I hate what you’re doing to the country at this moment and I count the days ‘til you no longer have one iota of the power that you currently have.’”
Rogen felt bad about it, because Ryan’s kids seemed lovely, but at the same time, “if they, like, watch a movie or listen to a song, they should probably know that the artist does not like their Dad, unless they’re watching a rerun of Roseanne or something.”
Anthony Scaramucci was also there, and during Rogen’s speech, he made a brutal joke at Scaramucci’s expense, and Scaramucci being Scaramucci, his people called Rogen’s people the next day and asked if they could get together, because they seemed to hit it off so well at the summit.
These people don’t even realize when they’re being insulted, do they?
