When he's not watching The Bachelorette, Sean Penn can be found keeping up with politics.
The Oscar winner appeared on Conan Thursday night and let show host Conan O'Brien know how he feels ISIS came about: It was former President George W. Bush and Dick Cheney's fault.
"These are the guys, [Cheney] and President Bush and some others, who invented Daesh, or ISIS," Penn said, using the Arabic name for the terror group. "I mean, they really are that which created it, and so I wanted to give him a shout-out.
"Thanks for that," he added.
He continued to slam the former vice president Cheney, referring to him as "embittered bacteria" and even questioned how the politician is even still alive, given his plaguing heart condition. "It's always a surprise to me to remember that, through bionic technology and so on, this guy's still here," he said.
