Ted Cruz Hilariously Responds To Charlie Sheen’s Proposal To Be His VP In 2020 (TWEETS)


Charlie Sheen’s got a #WINNING proposal for Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) in 2020. On Friday he sent a Tweet floating the idea of a Sheen/Cruz GOP ticket for the next presidential election.

in 4 years
we can unseat this guy!!

You bring the AWESOME,
I’ll bring the WINNING!!

Ted Cruz very graciously replied with a joking reference to Hillary Clinton’s defeat and Charlie Sheen’s brother, Martin, who plays the president of the U.S. in the hit NBC political drama The West Wing.

Glad to see @charliesheen embracing conservative principles, but Americans just rejected another political dynasty.

It turns out Ted Cruz and Charlie Sheen also traded tweets on Wednesday, after the actor heard Carrie Fisher and her mother Debbie Reynolds had died and tweeted out a death wish for President-elect Donald Trump.

Although many likely wish the same thing, most of us wouldn’t dare say it in public. At the time of this writing nearly 109,000 people marked it as a favorite, and over 57,000 peopled retweeted it.

But many Twitizens — even non-Trumpers — were not pleased.


Charlie Sheen’s death wish tweet is especially startling given that back in 2015 he clamored to be Mein Trumpf’s running mate a scant few weeks after the Donald glided down that escalator at Trump Tower.

But Ted Cruz didn’t slam the actor, producer, writer and loose cannon for wishing Donald Trump would please just die. He merely tweeted out cheery homily with a reference to 1 Timothy 2:2.

The verse Ted Cruz is referring to proclaims:

‘(2:1) I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people, (2:2) for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness.’

Charlie Sheen later responded to people’s outrage with another explosive tweet — chock full of SAT words, no less — in his own defense.

‘The media’s reaction to last night’s tweet is inanely emblematic of the panoramic timorousness draped vastly and wantonly across any and all expressions of hope or joy, that we now dare to publish or impart. Oh, and by the way, I was talking to God, not you. — c.s.’

Still, Charlie Sheen’s dead serious about running with Ted Cruz in 2020. He even designed a campaign ad. Of course, since Sheen has a colossal ego and TIGER BLOOD, he put himself on the top of the ticket. Strangely, the graphic also cuts Ted Cruz’s body off at the shoulders. No wonder Cruz isn’t interested.
