Funnyman Seth Rogen attacks US Senators for WALKING OUT of his emotional Capitol Hill plea about Alzheimer’s, based on mother-in-law’s struggle with illness
- The 31-year-old actor’s mother-in-law suffers from early onset Alzheimer’s
- Rogen made the trip to Capitol Hill to convince Congress to funnel more money toward fighting the disease
- While he began with jokes, the actor took to Twitter by the end to call out Senators who left early or failed to show up
- Only two Senators of the 18 on the subcommittee stayed for the movie star’s testimony
- Senator Mark Kirk of Illinois thanked Rogen for his speech in a tweet…but he didn’t even stay to hear it
Seth Rogen showed up to Capitol Hill on Wednesday to give an emotional address about Alzheimer’s disease, but his sadness soon turned to ire as he watched Congress members leave the already nearly empty hearing.’All those empty seats are senators who are not prioritizing Alzheimer’s,’ the normally jovial Rogen tweeted following the hearing.
He followed up his speech with an appearance on Hardball in which he again called out the 16 Senators who ducked out early or failed to even show up to his speech.
