Seth Rogen’s Twitter account is a funny microcosm of what a lot of left-leaning people are experiencing right now. It’s half sweet pictures of his pottery experiments, a hobby he clearly took up under quarantine.
The other half is angry tweets about how Donald Trump and his followers are trying to overthrow democracy.
If you go into his replies, you will find Rogen using his platform to verbally abuse the GOP enablers who have been stoking the fire of insurrection for years. Some really believe what they’re saying, some are mostly in it for the grift, but almost all of them are now saying we need to “heal” after January 6th’s attempted coup. Healing is code for “no accountability” for any of the perpetrators, including themselves.
Rogen really got into it with right-wing pundit Hugh Hewitt, who thinks Joe Biden should enter his presidency with a message of unity similar to Abraham Lincoln.
To that Rogen responded, “We’ve already established that your words are meaningless and you have no set of morals that you consistently abide by, and therefore you should probably just shut up?”
It got more intense from there, with Hewitt repeatedly inviting Rogen onto his show for a debate and Rogen responding by comparing him to an empty toilet, waiting for a deposit:
He went on to slam Texas Representative Kevin Brady, who wants the Democrats to forget this pesky impeachment and 25th amendment business:
Thanks for telling it like it is to the GOP and your eight million followers, Seth.
