You know you’ve officially won in life when the multi-billionaire known for telling people “You’re Fired!” does a complete 180 and tells people you’re a winner instead. While speaking to Access Hollywood’s Billy Bush this past Wednesday(March 2nd), Donald Trump touched on the always fun topic of Charlie Sheen, and had this to say:
“Well, I’m actually saying he’s a winner. I know Charlie. He’s not doing so badly. I thought he be a wreck. I think so far Charlie’s been a winner.”
When asked whether or not he would be opposed to casting sheen for his hit NBC show The Celebrity Apprentice, Trump responded by saying:
“I would love to have him, but I’ll be honest I think they are going to end up signing him for a lot more money then he was getting paid in the first place,” Donald explained. “It’s all about ratings in this crazy business and if you have ratings you can be the worst person in the world but they will sign you.”
Trump even shared his thoughts on whether or not he believed Charlie could be replaced on Two & A Half Men:
“I think with Charlie they will do better then they have ever before and the show was already doing well,” he said. “I think Charlie will be a big star for a long time to come. He must be a PR person’s nightmare,” Donald said laughing, “But I really get a great kick out a Charlie. I think he’s gonna be just fine.” (Source)
From “The Donald’s” mouth to God’s ears! Charlie’s winning!
