Donald Trump must have some kind of signal that alerts him when someone else’s ego is getting bigger than his own. He’s been on his own press tour, offering his two
cents billions on good friend Charlie Sheen.
“I think what's going to happen, believe it or not, he'll sign a new contract for a lot more money…because he gets ratings,” Trump said.
Higher ratings than a little show called The Apprentice, maybe? That explains why, out of nowhere, Donald Trump got dressed, combed his hair over, and appeared on Access Hollywood to talk about Charlie Sheen.
Actually, he was supposed to be promoting “Celebrity Apprentice”, but since the news lately is nothing but: Charlie Sheen, Charlie Sheen, Charlie Sheen, Gadhafi, Charlie Sheen, Charlie Sheen, Charlie Sheen, Trump didn’t talk much about the show.
When asked if he has any advice for Sheen, Donald said Charlie should cut back on the television interviews. Ironically, Trump also had an interview with Popeater and Regis and Kelly on Wednesday. He says Sheen is on a “fine line, I hope he doesn’t cross that line.” Uh, the man claimed he made rock stars look like "droopy eyed armless children". There is no line anymore.
Donald Trump's just freaking out because another celebrity might have more manipulation and power than he does. I can see him yelling at his assistant, "Get me a tiger and extract its blood, pronto! I need tiger blood!"
"Boss, I'm pretty sure Charlie was jok-"
"I SAID TIGER BLOOD."
The Donald also made an interesting point about how it's possible for an assh-le to still be popular:
“He’s worth a lot of money because his show gets a lot of ratings. I learned it through the apprentice. If the show gets good ratings, you can be a nice guy you can be a horrible guy, you can be a miserable person, everybody will kiss your ass.”
That’s probably the nicest way of calling someone a douche I’ve ever heard.
Trump told Popeater he knows Sheen because he married “the daughter of a friend at the Milagro Club.” That daughter was, of course, Brooke Mueller, and Trump says he warned Brooke’s mom to not let the marriage happen. Despite that, he still considers Sheen a friend.
Summing up the general opinion of Charlie Sheen, Trump said, “Whether you do like him or you don’t like him, he’s great entertainment.”
Now, if you'll excuse me, I need to go refresh @charliesheen.
