Sean Penn Likens Voting for Donald Trump to "Masturbating Our Way Into Hell"

The actor shared his thoughts on politics and also joined Twitter for the first time.

Sean Penn rarely makes late night appearances but he stopped by The Late Show With Stephen Colbert to promote the audiobook he narrated, Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff.

Apart from the book, Penn and Colbert talked about the recent presidential debate, with Penn saying he didn't watch it because he feels it was more of a "social debate" than a political one. He elaborated by saying the author of his audio book, Pappy Pariah, described the current election in a way that impacted how Penn sees it.

"There are two options: Either you can decide to divorce yourself from loving your children and piss on a tree and show that you have the power to piss on a tree," said Penn, "Or you can go out and vote in a very big way for someone like Hillary Clinton — who then you can challenge and support which is the only way that any kind of president can have any success — and you stick it out for four years, or we can just masturbate our way into hell with a guy who looks like the only blonde magician."

Colbert responded by laughing and saying that if Penn is referring to Trump, he doesn't think he can "masturbate his way into hell" because his hands are too small.

"Proportional match," responded Penn with a smile.

The actor — who didn't know what a hashtag was — also joined Twitter for the first time, with Colbert's help.
