Conservative actor John Ratzenberger, who is best known as the character “Cliff” from the television sitcom Cheers, on Friday called for former Rep. Allen West (R-FL) to take "something from his gene pool" and "put it everywhere across this great country."

Ratzenberger was introducing West at the Faith and Freedom Coalition’s Road to Majority conference. He also called West a “real American.”

"We should really take something from his gene pool and put it everywhere across this great country," Ratzenberger said. "A real American hero, my friend, Allen West."

It was not immediately clear if Ratzenberger intended for West to personally distribute his DNA or had some other method in mind for sharing the "gene pool."
