Only in the United States could politics become a segment air-able on Comedy Central every single week. Donald Trump’s Presidential campaign has been ridiculous enough, and Kanye West announcing he’s running in 2020 only adds to that insanity, but it just gets better and better.
Charlie Sheen hasn’t been in the headlines for a while, and we’re kind of disappointed about it since he’s a goldmine of entertainment. In July Sheen took to Twitter to shame Trump for being, well, Donald Trump…
Trump you're a sad & silly homunculus your words as poignant as a sack of cat farts You're a shame pile of idiocy © http://t.co/voYaI7L2lZ

The troll doll was a nice touch. So it seems that he’s since had a change of heart and, again, he took to Twitter to pretty much say he want to be Trump’s Vice President.
dear O. Wilson they took ur comment out of context! I'm honored! thank u! If Trump will hv me I'd be his VP in a heartbeat! © #TrumpSheen16

Owen Wilson might be the man we have to thank for Sheen’s recent interest in politics and it all stems from an interview he gave with The Daily Beast.
“You can’t help but get a kick out of [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.”
Would it actually happen? It’s crazy, and highly unlikely, but you just never know. Regardless, it’s a fun idea to entertain and you can’t have a more winning campaign than one with fluffy hair, tiger’s blood and a whole lotta moxie.
