Trump yesterday: Trump to Arnie: You were ‘fired’ from ‘The New Celebrity Apprentice’ over bad ratings; Arnie to Trump: Hire a ‘fact checker’
The president of the United States of America has a feud going on with the Terminator. Help us all.
NEW YORK — In typical Donald Trump fashion, the president tweeted Saturday that his replacement at the The New Celebrity Apprentice reality television show is to blame for its poor ratings and not, as Arnold Schwarzenegger says, Trump’s continued involvement with the show.
Schwarzenegger, who replaced Trump as host of the show while the president remained its executive producer, announced Friday he’s through. He said even if he were asked again, he wouldn’t want to host the show.
“With Trump being involved in the show, people have a bad taste and don’t want to participate as a spectator or as a sponsor or in any other way support the show,” he said in an interview with the Empire website. “It’s a very divisive period now, and I think this show got caught up in all that division.”
But Trump, who has taunted Schwarzenegger for the show’s poor performance in the ratings and even mocked him during an address at the National Prayer Breakfast, tweeted in response Saturday: “Arnold Schwarzenegger isn’t voluntarily leaving the Apprentice, he was fired by his bad (pathetic) ratings, not by me. Sad end to great show.”
