Famous funny man Seth Rogen is done with Donald Trump.
But he’s not angry. At least, we don’t think that he is. If he is, then he’s doing a great job of hiding it underneath all of that pixelation.
“President” Trump is known for his absolutely ludicrous tweets. They prompt everything from fear to utter scorn among those following them closely.
Trump routinely claims things on his Twitter that are utter lies, such as the now multiple times that he has claimed that he “has no relationship” to Vladimir Putin. In fact, Trump spoke glowingly of his relationship with the longtime Russian president as recently as 2013, on the occasion of his Miss Universe pageant being held in Moscow. Although Putin himself didn’t make an appearance at that pageant, a noted Russian mobster did. He was given a place of honor at the pageant by Trump himself.
Yet, Trump wrote this morning on Twitter, “I don’t know Putin, have no deals in Russia, and the haters are going crazy!”
I don't know Putin, have no deals in Russia, and the haters are going crazy – yet Obama can make a deal with Iran, #1 in terror, no problem!

Donald Trump’s son, Trump Jr., commented in 2008 of the family businesses and Russia: “In terms of high-end product influx into the US, Russians make up a pretty disproportionate cross-section of a lot of our assets. We see a lot of money pouring in from Russia. There’s indeed a lot of money coming for new-builds and resale reflecting a trend in the Russian economy.”
And yet, fast forward to 2017, and we have the elder Donald — who’s president now –claiming that he has nothing at all to do with Russia.
The comments section of Trump’s tweet is full of the unsurprising numerous copies of the video of Trump speaking glowingly of his relationship with Putin back in 2013.
Seth Rogen, however, took a different approach to replying to Trump.
He posted a photo of himself with fellow actor James Franco, posing in the nude, with appropriate areas blurred out. Rogen and Franco were nude together on the occasion of their participation in the Discovery Channel series “Naked and Afraid.”
Rogen’s caption to this photo?
“I DO NOT know James Franco. I have NO relationship with him, never worked with him, and the haters are going CRAZY.”

Rogen also replied indirectly to Trump’s strange, strange Monday tweet asserting that “all negative polls are fake news,” writing, jokingly, “Any negative reviews to my movies are Fake Reviews.”
Any negative reviews to my movies are #FakeReviews.
