Jon Cryer Compares Donald Trump to Charlie Sheen: 'I Don't Want People to Pick the President Based on Entertainment Value'

Jon Cryer is getting real about the similarities between one of his former co-stars and a GOP frontrunner.

"I worked with a guy who, whenever he said whatever came to the top of his head, people loved it!" the actor said on Tuesday's The Real. "And they loved it even more when he said horrible things."

The Two and a Half Men star was pretty clearly speaking about his former co-star Charlie Sheen, who was fired from the CBS sitcom in April 2011 after a bizarre public meltdown, which included multiple tirades about series creator Chuck Lorre.

"People like that he's willing to just say whatever foolishness comes to the top of his head," Cryer said of Trump, denoting the "interesting overlap" between Sheen and the Republican presidential candidate. "It's fascinating to watch because I don't want people to pick the president based on entertainment value."

"I saw somebody spectacularly flame out and ruin everything that was good in their lives by doing that," he added. "I don't want somebody else to ruin everybody else's lives by coming to power that way."
