Trump and Schwarzenegger Are Twitter Fighting About TV Ratings Because Everything's the Worst
The latest series premiered earlier this week, with Schwarzenegger debuting a handful of cringe-worthy new catchphrases, but it's not the use of "You're terminated" that's pissing off the president-elect.
Trump, who still serves as an executive producer on the show, took to Twitter this morning (January 6) to voice his discontent with the ratings slide suffered by the show in his onscreen absence.
Wow, the ratings are in and Arnold Schwarzenegger got "swamped" (or destroyed) by comparison to the ratings machine, DJT. So much for....— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 6, 2017
being a movie star-and that was season 1 compared to season 14. Now compare him to my season 1. But who cares, he supported Kasich & Hillary— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 6, 2017
Now, Schwarzenegger has responded to Trump's tweets with a few slightly more diplomatic 140-character messages of his own.
I wish you the best of luck and I hope you'll work for ALL of the American people as aggressively as you worked for your ratings.— Arnold (@Schwarzenegger) January 6, 2017
Then, he finished his response with an inspirational throwback to good old Abe Lincoln.
We're guessing Lincoln never could have predicted that his words would be used in a Schwarzenegger-Trump tweet-off, but apparently that's the world in 2017 for you.
Trump officially takes office on January 20, but not before Barack Obama throws a star-studded farewell bash tonight (January 6).
