Charlie Sheen thinks he would make a good president

2015-02-12 21:00

Los Angeles - Charlie Sheen wants to run for US president.

The Anger Management actor claims he would be the perfect candidate to run for office in 2016 after conducting a small survey of his friends, and would even enlist his father Martin Sheen - who famously played fictional president Jed Bartlett in political drama The West Wing - to run with him.

He said: "I conducted a poll - it was like 10 guys. In every situation - it doesn't matter the ethics scenario or the social scenario - when I say, 'Hey, what if I ran for president?' It's a hundred percent."


"Guess who my vice president is? My dad.

"It would be Sheen and Sheen 2016. Running on a platform of truth and transparency. Seriously.

"If he did run for office, the Young Guns star - who has a grown up daughter Cassandra from a relationship with Paula Profit, daughters Sam, 10, and Lola, nine, with second wife Denise Richards, and twin sons Bob and Max, five, with third spouse Brooke Mueller - already knows which three laws he would like to pass, providing each school with an armed military veteran for protection, a flat tax rate of 10 per cent and "everybody relax".

The 49-year-old actor, who described himself as a "constitutional Republican", went on to joke about his wild partying past, admitting his openness about his antics means he wouldn't be upset if his conduct was raised during political debates.

Speaking on The Flipside With Michael Loftus, he said: "Imagine being in a debate. The guy's like 'Well, you did this!' and I'm like 'and?'

"What are they going to tell me about during the debate? 'How about the time...?' and I'd say 'So?' "
