This is so disrespectful on SO MANY levels! These last few weeks we have lost some incredible people. Does Sheen pay respect to them? Nope. He asks God to take Trump next. How messed up is this guy?

The politics of hate is getting out of control.
For all the positive aspects of social media, the amount of venom being spewed there threatens to desensitize us all.
Take Charlie Sheen. Okay, he’s a liberal Hollywood guy who hasn’t exactly led an exemplary life. He has a history of alcohol and drug problems. He was kicked off his CBS show and living with a couple of call girls. He belatedly admitted he had HIV as the National Enquirer was about to report it.
Oh, and he doesn’t like Donald Trump.
So after the sad deaths of Carrie Fisher and her mom, Debbie Reynolds, Sheen tweeted this:
“Dear God; Trump next, please! Trump next, please!” And on and on.
That’s right, this screwed-up actor wished death on the next president of the United States.
When I took to (where else) Twitter to denounce this, here are some of the responses I received:
Lanark: No. Should be listened to. By God.
firstname.lastname@example.org:Trump is a menace to the USA and the entire world!! He could be the cause of millions of deaths so why shouldn’t he go first!
Chris Bavelles: its not about political differences it’s about something so much worse. I applaud Charlie for tweeting out. And so should you.
Shawn: It’s Trump, he’s human garbage, it’s just like emptying the trash in your house.
