Former hosts of the reality-TV show The Apprentice are having it out on Twitter over the future of our nation regarding white nationalism. And you thought 2016 was stupid and awful.
After President* Donald Trump flubbed his initial remarks on Charlottesville, took two goddamn days to half-ass a do-over only to double down in a way so blindingly transparent it sent most of us into a spiral of rage and into the bottoms of a booze bottle, former Governor of California/movie star Arnold Schwarzenegger released a video giving the Donald a lesson on how to respond to goddamn Nazis.
It includes a bobblehead of the great orange disgrace. Because 2017 laughs at your ire and pain.

Schwarzenegger speaks of moral responsibility and the importance of speaking unequivocally against racism and hate that can—and are—ripping our country to pieces. His is a beautiful and powerful message that speaks to American and Austrian history, compassion and the angels of our better nature. But everything about the context that’s led to it is so bonkers that no one will blame you for reaching for your emergency desk bottle of booze. (I’m not the only one who has one of those, right?)
