If the internet wasn’t already convinced that 2016 is out to steal all of our cultural icons, the back-to-back tragedy of losing Carrie Fisher and her mother Debbie Reynolds just one day apart has certainly helped reinforce that belief. Countless celebrities and regular folk have offered heartfelt condolences to the families of the famous mother and daughter, but leave it to Charlie Sheen to take a bit of a different tack for his own response.
Sheen took it upon himself to nominate the next person who should be consumed by the unstoppable monster that is 2016 and he sure didn’t mince words:
Sheen hasn’t exactly made his true feelings about the President-elect a secret in the past, having called the then Republican candidate a “charlatan” during an interview on The Graham Norton Show, in response to a terrible wedding gift the former Two and a Half Men star received from the real estate mogul.
While we certainly don’t condone Sheen’s comments (no matter your opinion on Trump, it’s a step too far to wish death upon him), it is rather surprising that the next President of the United States has so far managed to survive this year’s clutches. He’s a 70-year-old man with a terrible diet, doesn’t exercise, and now has the most stressful job in the world to deal with. Then again, Winston Churchill smoked like a chimney and somehow lived to be 90, so it wouldn’t be much of a surprise if Trump ended up having a shockingly long life too.
