Did schizophrenic-like actor Charlie Sheen join the tea party?
(Not that the movement would want him.)
Referring to President Obama as “Barry Satera Kenya,” Sheen ripped the president in an odd tweet Thursday for taking the time to fill out an NCAA bracket but not attend “a soldier’s funeral.”

“Satera” is clearly a play on Barry Soetoro, the name Obama sometimes went by as a child when living with his Indonesian stepfather Lolo Soetoro.
As for the soldier’s funeral, reports say it’s a reference to Deputy U.S. Marshal Josie Wells, who was laid to rest last week — while Obama did not attend the services, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder delivered the eulogy and read a letter from the president.
Given Sheen’s history, social media users weren’t very sympathetic to his cause and the inclusion of the term “Kenya” brought out plenty of charges of racism — welcome to the tea party Charlie!
Here is a sampling of the responses as seen on Twitter:
@charliesheen Why don’t you shut up and make me a turkey pot pie? Oh wait, wrong 80s has-been.

@charliesheen probably didn’t have to use the word Kenya. Makes ya look like a “racist douche” – invalidates the whole tweet
