Director Judd Apatow lashed out at President Donald Trump Saturday, telling him to “please shut the f*ck up” after the president defended himself from accusations about his mental health by calling himself a “genius.”
The Knocked Up and This Is 40 director was one of numerous celebrities to weigh in on Trump’s tweet Saturday, in which he charged Democrats and the mainstream media with using the “Ronald Reagan playbook” to accuse him of mental incompetence.
“Actually, throughout my life, my two greatest assets have been mental stability and being, like, really smart,” Trump wrote in the series of three tweets, adding: “I went from VERY successful businessman, to top T.V. Star to President of the United States (on my first try). I think that would qualify as not smart, but genius….and a very stable genius at that!”
While most stars who commented on the tweets made donkey jokes, Apatow asked Trump for a “moment of peace.”
