I Wanted To ‘Smash His Face’


Arnold Schwarzenegger escalated his longstanding social media feud with President Donald Trump, saying in an interview published Monday that he wanted to “smash” the newly sworn-in president’s face.

The discord between Trump and Schwarzenegger heated up last month following the former California governor’s debut as host of Celebrity Apprentice, replacing Trump.

The president mocked Schwarzenegger on Twitter for the season premiere’s plummeting ratings, noting the Hollywood legend supported Trump primary foe John Kasich and Democratic rival Hillary Clinton.


He later joked about the issue at the National Prayer Breakfast on Thursday, saying, “They hired a big, big movie star, Arnold Schwarzenegger, to take my place. And we know how that turned out. The ratings went right down the tubes. It’s been a total disaster and [show producer and Trump friend] Mark [Burnett] will never ever bet against Trump again, and I want to just pray for Arnold if we can.”


The actor responded with a video tweet in which he said, “Hey Donald, I have a great idea. Why don’t we switch jobs? You take over TV, because you’re such an expert in ratings, and I take over your job, and then people can finally sleep comfortably again.”

Schwarzenegger discussed Trump’s tweets about the reality show’s low ratings in an interview with Men’s Journal.

“I called my assistant and said, ‘I think what we really should do is request a meeting and go back to New York,’” he said, pausing for emphasis. “And then we just smash his face into the table.”


Schwarzenegger said he ultimately tried to take the high road.

“And then I think, ‘We can’t do that, either,’” he said. “I think I have to be above all that and put him on the spot. Don’t get into a stinking contest with a skunk.”

Sixty-nine-year-old Schwarzenegger first shot back at Trump on social media in January, challenging the president to “work for all of the American people as aggressively as you worked for your ratings.”

He went on to read a quote from President Abraham Lincoln’s inaugural address, adding, “The campaign is over. The election is over. We are not enemies. We are neighbors, we are friends and most importantly we are all Americans. And we have a lot of work to do to keep America great. So let’s do it, and let’s do it together.”

“I think people really reacted well to that response,” Schwarzenegger told Men’s Journal of his video. “I sound more presidential and more diplomatic and more elder-statesman — that’s exactly the way Donald should be.”
