We all know Trump hasn’t thought much of Arnold Schwarzenegger’s performance on The Apprentice, the show Trump ran before he ran for President.
But even with all the other things President Trump was busy with today (accusing Obama of wiretapping his office, managing a defunct Congress, running the free world) he still found time to insult Arnold for his horrible performance on The Apprentice.
Here’s what the Donald had to say:
Arnold Schwarzenegger isn't voluntarily leaving the Apprentice, he was fired by his bad (pathetic) ratings, not by me. Sad end to great show

Schwarzenegger tried to hit back through Twitter, but when the last season of The Apprentice ranked 2nd least popular in the last 15 seasons, crying “fact-check!” just doesn’t sound as impressive as it usually does:
You should think about hiring a new joke writer and a fact checker. https://t.co/SvAjuPdHfa

Trump’s tweet comes on the heels of Schwarzenegger’s resignation from The Apprentice yesterday. In his resignation announcement, Schwarzenegger had the nerve to suggest that The Apprentice’s plummeting ratings resulted from Trump’s election “baggage.”
Sure, Arnold. Just keep telling yourself that.
Last month, Trump spoke at the National Prayer Breakfast and hit a good one at Schwarzenegger, suggesting that Americans pray for Arnold to rescue his low ratings on the Apprentice.
