Trump Hits Arnold Schwarzenegger For ‘Bombing’ On The Apprentice: ‘My Poor Beautiful Show!’

At a rally in Pensacola, Florida, President Trump took a moment to slam Arnold Schwarzenegger when he took over Celebrity Apprentice earlier this year.

While discussing his achievements in reforming the VA, he boasted how “corrupt and incompetent employees” can now be held accountable because “we got it done.”

“You couldn’t fire anybody at the VA!” Trump exclaimed. “Now, we look at ’em. They’re no good. We say, ‘You’re fired! Get outta here!'”

After the crowd roared with applause, the president went a bit off-topic…

“And I must tell you, I can’t believe that Arnold Schwarzenegger bombed so badly on The Apprentice, my poor beautiful show,” Trump said. “Oh, it was so successful. Get a big movie star and he can’t pull it off.”

Trump quickly pivoted back to his message about “respecting America’s heroes” and “rebuilding America’s standing all over the world.”
