Here's how it went down: Arnold Schwarzenegger, actor and former Republican governor of California, is the new host of Trump's famous show, now titled "The New Celebrity Apprentice."
Trump — who is still technically the executive producer of "Apprentice" — is apparently petty AF and took to mock his own show's poor ratings on last night's season 14 premiere (which he blamed on Schwarzenegger, I guess).
He even worked in a "Terminator" reference, just to be an extra
"But who cares, he supported Kasich and Hillary." It kinda sounds like you care, Trump.
But anyways, Schwarzenegger was not about to take that lying down. He is the Terminator, after all.
Schwarzenegger went with the backhanded compliment burn — a real American classic.
The former governor wrote,
Obviously, people loved it.
But that's not even the only way Schwarzenegger responded to Trump.
The 69-year-old actor and politician also reposted a video of himself on Twitter, reciting a quote from Abraham Lincoln's inaugural address.
The video was filmed back in November right after the election, but Schwarzenegger reposted it on Friday, urging Trump to listen to the message.
In the video, Schwarzenegger says,
Phew. Talk about going high.
(And he's right, of course — I really DID want to hear him read an Abraham Lincoln quote in his signature Austrian accent.)
