Arnold Schwarzenegger Slams President Trump’s Approval Ratings: ‘You Got Swamped’

Donald Trump Arnold Schwarzenegger

Arnold Schwarzenegger is trying to flip the narrative of his ongoing ratings feud with President Donald Trump.

“Oh Donald — the ratings are in, and you got swamped,” the actor and former Governor of California said in a video posted to Twitter Tuesday morning. “Wow. Now you’re in the thirties?”

The video comes on the heels of the latest gallup polls which put Trump’s approval rating at just 37% — a new low since he took office two months ago. Trump and Schwarzenegger have argued over social media in the past. The “Terminator” actor took over for Trump on “The Apprentice,” which subsequently tanked in the ratings. Trump has publicly shamed Schwarzenegger for the show’s ratings failure, while the new host has called out the president’s continued involvement as an executive producer on the show as a reason why audiences may have tuned out.

Arnold Schwarzenegger Responds to Trump ‘Apprentice’ Diss: ‘Why Don’t We Switch Jobs’

“But what do you expect?” Schwarzenegger asked in the video. “I mean when you take away after school programs for children and meals on wheels for the poor people, that’s not what you call ‘making America great again.’ Come on.”

He added, “I mean, who is advising you? Let me give you some advice: go to a middle school — the Hart Middle School, right in Washington, six miles away from the White House.”

Finally, Schwarzenegger concluded with an offer: “I’ll take you there, so you can see the fantastic work that they’re doing for these children. Let’s do it, huh?”

The president, who is typically not shy on Twitter, has yet to respond.

    It’ going to be interesting how much support Arnold gets from Tump when he goes against Feinsein in 2018. The Donald is going to need him in the US Senate to get anything passed.

    Popcorn at the ready!

    I’ll take Arnie over the Donald anyday.

  4. Joe says:

    2057?? Like we said, uneducated!

  5. A day with Hillary in the woods is a day with God. Arnie, the poor lad took too many roids and muscled too many housemaids on the workbench in the garage. Trumps will be in the White House until 2057, get used to it cupcakes. That should give all you underachievers a chance to catch up on your ABC’s :)

  6. Joe says:

    Completely agree.

  7. Truth Teller 2 says:

    the only supporters that Trump has left are the uneducated and those with low I.Q’s.

  8. Joe says:

    Is that all you got Colbert, “fake news”, “lock her up”?? How about you get a grip on reality and realize Trump is destroying this country all for his own benefit! Also realize this,he doesn’t care about you, he USED you! You were CONNED!!! Grow up!!!

    • Tell It says:

      TruthTeller, you speak the truth. President Pumpkin is a farce, a creep. and joke. He’ll never make the end of his term.

  9. Steve Barr says:

    Thin skinned Trump cockroaches. Gotta love em .

    • Dunstan says:

      Colbert, you’ve got your head so far up your behind, all you can see is Fox News.

      Years from now, you’ll have to explain to people how you supported someone who was clueless regarding the Constitution, had no conception of freedom of the press, was a paranoid bullying liar and was out of touch with reality or anything outside his real estate bubble.

      You must feel very superior to people who will lose their health care, their school lunches, their meals on wheels, and on and on.

      You’re pathetic.

  10. Sct says:

    Omg arnie the asshole.
    Exactly why arn was a crapolo gov.
    He needs a translator to tell him the stuff is funded mostly by richies(like him).
    Hahaha time to tell arnie what donating will do, he survived off of people, he got rich off of people, time to give back.
    Oiy vey.

  11. The Truth says:

    Apparently you’re too ignorant to understand the difference between the budget deficit and the national debt. In any case, here are the three main reasons the debt increased more than $9 trillion under Obama:

    (1) $3 trillion to pay for tax and spending policies already in place before Obama became President

    (2) increased demand on safety net programs like Medicaid and food stamps due to the Great Recession inherited from Bush (the real sunken ship)

    (3) the federal stimulus package required to rebuild the shattered economy Bush left behind

    Making Bush era tax cuts permanent in 2012 — which Obama opposed but the Republican-dominated Congress pushed through — also added to the debt.

    And even though Trump’s budget proposal reduces discretionary spending basically by gutting aid to the poor and federal support for cultural development, increased spending for defense, homeland security, and infrastructure (which Republicans voted down under Obama as too costly) will create a substantial budget deficit resulting in a continuing increase of the national debt. So Trump’s not being persecuted for trying to fix the national debt because his proposals don’t fix it. His shoddily conceived policy initiatives are being challenged by concerned citizens who want leadership characterized by critical thinking, not careless con-man bullshit.

    the taxpayers that buy your movie tickets moronski!!!!!!!!

  13. Dunstan says:

    Hate to break it to you Frank but you’re woefully misinformed.

    Taxpayers do not fund Hollywood movies.

    And your pathetic display of ignorance is typical of those who cry ‘fake news’ when they disagree with the leader of the Fourth Reich.

  14. Colbert says:

    20 trillion dollar deficit !!!
    Why would Arnold,
    or ….the rest of Hollywood be concerned about that ?????
    That’s the ‘ little ‘ peoples problem.
    It’s no work to just sit back and persecute the people that are TRYING to fix the sunken ship Obama created in the past 8 yrs, he doubled the deficit to 20 trillion dollars.
