After funny man Owen Wilson titled Donald Trump the “Charlie Sheen of politics,” the Two and a Half Men star expressed his wishes to actually be Donald’s right hand man. Regardless of the humorous and sarcastic undertones, the public has taken note.
Owen Wilson made a comical connection between the Apprentice Celebrity star and real estate tycoon with the often outrageous Sheen during an interview with the Daily Beast.
“You can’t help but get a kick out of him [Trump], and I think part of it is we’re so used to politicians on both sides sounding like actors at press junkets — it’s sort of by rote, and they say all the right things. So here’s somebody who’s not following that script. It’s like when Charlie Sheen was doing that stuff — like, wow! He’s answering a question completely honestly, and in an entertaining way. You sort of feel he could be a character from Network.”
However, Sheen responded in a surprising manner to Wilson’s comparison, seeing as a short while ago he slammed Trump in the form of a short poem via Twitter.

Sheen was quick to respond via Twitter to Owen’s comments. ET notes the star’s seemingly sarcastic wording via Twitter.
“If Trump will hv me I’d be his VP in a heartbeat! #TrumpSheen16.”

It’s unlikely that Trump will consider any sort of collaboration with Sheen as the billionaire has already gotten himself into enough hot water after remarks recently made about Heidi Klum not being a 10 anymore and additional comments directed at Fox News anchorperson Megyn Kelly, also via Twitter.
“I liked The Kelly File much better without @megynkelly.”
Fox News CEO Roger Ailes was appalled by Trump’s criticism of Kelly and fired back in a written statement as a means to defend the Fox anchor.
“Donald Trump’s surprise and unprovoked attack on Megyn Kelly during her show last night is as unacceptable as it is disturbing. Megyn Kelly represents the very best of American journalism and all of us at FOX News Channel reject the crude and irresponsible attempts to suggest otherwise.”
It is clear that Trump has dug himself a deep enough trench as it is without the help of Charlie Sheen.
