Trump and Sheen both spout ‘foolishness,’ says Jon Cryer

The same Tiger Blood coursing through Charlie Sheen’s veins runs through a certain blabbering billionaire’s, says Jon Cryer.

The “Two and a Half Men” actor noted an “interesting overlap” between his embattled former co-star and Republican front-runner Donald Trump: They’ll both say just about anything.

“I worked with a guy who also, whenever he said whatever came to the top of his head, people loved it,” Cryer said in a teaser for Tuesday’s episode of “The Real.” “And they loved it even more when he said horrible things.”

“So there is an interesting overlap between … Charlie and Donald Trump,” he continued of the reality star candidate. “People like that he’s willing to just say whatever foolishness comes to the top of his head. Much foolishness. And it’s fascinating to watch.”

But the “Pretty in Pink” alum — citing Sheen’s infamous slow-burning meltdown in 2011 — urged voters not to elect a commander-in-chief “based on entertainment value.”

“I saw someone spectacularly flame out and ruin everything that was good in their lives by doing that,” he said. “And I don’t want somebody else to ruin everybody else’s lives by coming to power that way.”

Sheen, 50, was fired by Warner Bros. Television and had his “Two and a Half Men” character killed off after he embarked on drug and booze-fueled exploits, trashed a suite at Manhattan’s Plaza hotel and unleashed anti-Semitic rants against show creator Chuck Lorre.

He later rebounded with the FX sitcom “Anger Management,” and recently revealed that he is HIV positive.

Sheen himself has a complicated history with Trump, having flip-flopped on his public stance toward the real-estate scion multiple times over the last year.

Sheen slowly melted down in 2011.

He most recently tweeted an Abraham Lincoln quote on Feb. 27, urging America to “WAKE UP” and vote for “#AnyoneButTrump” — but exactly six months prior boldly claimed he’d be Trump’s veep “in a heartbeat” and billed a “#TrumpSheen16” ticket.

A month earlier, he called The Donald “a sad & silly homunculus” and “a shame pile of idiocy.”
