Seth Rogen and Stephen Colbert Troll Donald Trump Jr. With Twitter DMs
"Maybe ask your dad to resign? Thanks man!"
On Monday's Late Show, Seth Rogen and Stephen Colbert joined forces to send direct messages to their mutual Twitter follower, Donald Trump Jr.
Rogen recounted how he tweeted at Trump Jr. in the hopes that he would reply.
Yo! @DonaldJTrumpJr! I noticed you follow me on Twitter. Please ask your dad to resign before he destroys the planet. Thanks dude.— Seth Rogen (@Sethrogen) February 16, 2017
"He ice’d me on that one, which was shocking, because, again, I tried to be polite," said Rogen. The actor tried again with a "polite and measured" DM.
“Hey, man! It’s Seth. Your father is trying to discredit our media, collude with Russia, and destroy the environment. It would be super cool of you to be like, ‘Yo, dad, why don’t you stop all this and go back to being just a guy on TV?’ The majority of the world would be pretty psyched. Thanks!!!”
Colbert said that he was inspired to check his own Twitter and realized that he, too, is followed by Trump Jr. They decided to "double team his ass," in Rogen's words, or "reach out" as Colbert put it.
Colbert sent Trump Jr. a DM, which he shared on Twitter.

When Rogen went to send another DM he realized he had sent more DMs to Trump Jr., telling him to have his dad look into Mike Flynn and saying he thinks Trump would prefer to go "back to hosting game shows." Then it was time for him to send another message.

Trump Jr. has yet to reply to any of the DMs or tweets but Rogen is hopeful. “If that doesn't work, what will?" he said to Colbert.
