Arnold Schwarzenegger Fires Back at Donald Trump After Celebrity Apprentice Jab

Arnold Schwarzenegger took to Twitter on Friday to slam Donald Trump after the president-elect criticized the actor's Celebrity Apprentice ratings after Monday's premiere.

Over 11 million people watched the first episode of The Celebrity Apprentice in 2008, as reported by Variety. So much for being a movie star - and that was season 1 compared to season 14.

Trump himself offered a possible explanation for his trashing a show that he could still be making money from, writing, "who cares, he supported Kasich & Hillary".

But the schooling didn't stop there, with the movie star offering Trump an impromptu history lesson, when he tweeted a video of himself reading a famous excerpt from Abraham Lincoln's inaugural address.

"We are not enemies, but friends".

In what is a clear sign that the rapport between some of the participants on the show this time and the host in Arnold Schwarzenegger is different than it was with Trump, we've seen over the past couple of days of the people taking part of the show standing up for it. Though passion may have strained, it must not break our bonds of affection.

CNN Money has noted that it is a odd move for Donald Trump to criticize Celebrity Apprentice, especially as Trump has retained the role of executive producer on the NBC show.

Schwarzenegger, the Republican former governor of California, backed Ohio Gov. John Kasich in the Republican primary and said in October that he could not support Trump in the general election.

We do think that it would be hilarious to see the "Apprentice" ratings go up just to see Trump's head explode, but that's probably not going to happen. Boy George responded by asking what they would be doing over the next four years once Donald Trump was inaugurated and officially became president.
