The ratings are in, and Trump rival Arnold Schwarzenegger is ready to tell the president: you’re fired!
Continuing the feud between the two celebrities-turned-politicians, Schwarzenegger couldn’t resist posting a video on Twitter this week after two separate polling organizations stated that Trump’s approval had sunk to an all-time low of 37 percent.
“Oh Donald, the ratings are in and you got swamped! Wow. Now you’re in the 30’s?!”
Schwarzenegger’s comments were inspired by the not one but two polling groups who released President Donald Trump’s most recent approval ratings stating that only 37 percent of Americans have a positive view of the job Donald Trump is doing in the White House.
While Schwarzenegger’s comment was petty, the back-and-forth between the two men was first instigated by Donald Trump shortly after his inauguration when he urged those at the National Prayer Breakfast to pray for Schwarzenegger and his abysmal TV ratings while hosting Celebrity Apprentice for the first time.
Since then, the two have gone back and forth with Trump insulting his replacement’s show ratings while Schwarzenegger urged the POTUS to focus more on his presidential duties.
Last week, Schwarzenegger announced that he would not agree to host another season of the “Apprentice” show because he felt the show had too much “baggage” due to Trump’s association. In response, Trump claimed that Schwarzenegger was not quitting, but was fired (classic).
The real difference between the two men is that while Donald Trump clearly has more power, he also has much more to lose. Poor ratings on a reality TV pale in comparison to historically low approval ratings for a sitting president.
