(Paul Ryan anecdote starts at the 3:50 mark)
Courtesy of Newsweek:
Seth Rogen told CBS late night host Stephen Colbert about his recent run-in with Speaker of the House Paul Ryan and his children.
“My whole body puckered, I tensed up, and I didn’t know what to do,” Rogen recounted to Colbert on Friday night’s show.
“And I turned around and Paul Ryan was walking towards me,” Rogen said. The two shook hands before Ryan asked for a photo with the star, and that’s where things went downhill Rogen told Colbert.
“I look over and his kids are standing right there expectantly, clearly fans of mine, and I said, ‘No way, man!’” Rogen said.
Rogen said that he also took the opportunity to scold the GOP lawmaker for his policies, even though he felt “conflicted” doing so in front of his children.
“Furthermore, I hate what you’re doing to the country at this moment and I’m counting the days until you no longer have one iota of the power that you currently have,” Rogen said he told Ryan.
Man, it is not a good week for Republicans out in the world is it?
Homeland Security Secretary Kirtstjen Nielson gets chased out of a Mexican food place and kept up all night by the cries of immigrant children, Sarah Huckabee Sanders gets ejected from a restaurant, and now Paul Ryan is shut down in front of his own kids.
And do you know what?
That is still only a small fraction of the pain and suffering they have inflicted on the American people, and potential immigrants wanting to come to our country.
So I do not feel even remotely bad for them.
