While alpha-male billionaire Donald Trump is pursuing leadership of the free world, Arnold Schwarzenegger is occupying Trump’s discarded seat as host of the television series The Apprentice. Trump has expressed concerns about Schwarzenegger’s quickness and smartness when dealing with the likes of business powerhouses like Omarosa.
“Well, we’re going to find out if Arnold is quick because if he’s not quick he’s not going to look good. When you got Omarosa and all the other ones coming at you, you got to be quick. You got to be smart.”
Schwarzenegger, on the other hand is publicly dissing Trump by backing Republican nominee opponent John Kasich. Schwarzenegger is stumping in Ohio for Kasich perhaps because it will look as if Arnold has influence if the candidate he backs wins, which you’d think would be a foregone conclusion since Kasich is Ohio’s Governor. Likely is that Kasich and Schwarzenegger became friends while both were governors or Schwarzenegger knows Kasich from spending so much time in Ohio producing the Arnold Classic.
While Trump continues to pursue the most powerful political position in the world, you can count on fierce reality TV drama as the actor who, by US law, is categorically barred from the Presidency, Arnold Schwarzenegger, along with non-Italian Chilean-American Snooki, Boy George, and cast members of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” and “Queer Eye for the Straight Guy”, give it their all.
