Actor Charlie Sheen spoke out against President-elect Donald Trump, saying that he believes the billionaire businessman won’t last a full four-year term (video below).
TMZ caught up with Sheen at the airport in Los Angeles and asked him about Trump’s forthcoming presidency as well as Meryl Streep’s buzzed-about speech at the Golden Globes.
“Everything that Dame Streep orated is beyond the pale of truth,” Sheen said. “And we are all responsible to even honor those words. I’m a big fan of accountability and skillets – none of which we will see the 20th.”
When asked if the country should put the campaign in the past and look forward to the future, Sheen replied with exactly what he thought would happen to the president-elect.
“We look forward to an impeachment,” he said, before walking away.
Meanwhile, Trump is coming under fire after it was revealed that there is potentially damaging allegations against him from Russia that the country has used as blackmail.
A declassified version of a report on the allegations was released last week which revealed that Russia was behind an operation designed to “undermine” American democracy, which ultimately led to an effort to help Trump win the presidency.
President Obama told NBC News that he ordered the report to ensure that the U.S. was “working effectively with our allies so that misinformation and cyber attacks don’t end up undermining democratic structures around the world.”
“My expectation and my hope is that this work will continue after I leave, that Congress, in possession of both the classified and unclassified reports, that the president-elect and his administration, in possession of both the classified and unclassified reports, will take it seriously and now get to work reinforcing those mechanisms that we can use to protect our democracy,” he said.
Trump dismissed the reports as “fake news” and called the revelations a political “witch hunt” against him.
