Charlie Sheen does not care for presidential hopeful Donald Trump. It’s a stance that doesn’t exactly put him in exclusive company, but he does have the unique title of having quite possibly the best Trump wedding present story ever uttered on national television.
Sheen shared his fascinating tale on The Graham Norton Show where he had no problem laying into “charlatan” Trump. Even though the Two and a Half Men star didn’t invite Trump to his nuptials, that didn’t stop The Donald from giving a gift anyway.
“I was at a dinner with my ex-wife Brooke [Mueller] and her family, and about halfway through I noticed Donald staring at my watch,” Sheen said. “He says, ‘I want to give you an early wedding gift as a gesture from me and Melania’ — and she doesn’t say a word; she’s very sweet and very pretty but she just kind of sits there. Anyhow, so he says ‘These are platinum diamond Harry Winston’ and he pulls off his cufflinks and he gives them to me.”
That’s a nice gift, right? Trump’s not hurting for cash, so it makes sense that he could just give away something like that and not hit the poorhouse. Well, it turns out that the unrequested gift wasn’t exactly what it seems.
“Smashcut to about six months later, I had some jewelry getting appraised at the house,” Sheen continued. “She took the loupe, spent about four seconds, and kind of recoiled from it — much like people do from Trump — and says ‘In their finest moment, this is cheap pewter and bad zirconias.’ And they’re stamped ‘Trump,’ and I just thought, ‘What does this really say about the man, that he said, ‘Here’s a great wedding gift,’ and it’s just a bag of dog sh*t?’”
If only Sheen had tiny gloves on his wedding registry. What might have been! The interview clip (which we have nestled above) is definitely worthy of a watch and the term “flawless Ds” is used at one point, so there’s that to look forward to as well.
