We have been laying low where it concerns the petty, alarmist tweets of Donny Trash since the holiday, because most of these tweets mean nothing. They’re either designed to distract us from some other Trump dumpster fire, or they are designed to dominate the day’s news headlines. I have no interest in playing into that bullshit anymore. Some of his blathering tweets may prove to be worthy of covering, but honestly, we don’t need to give voice to every one of his exhausting grievances. Obviously, we don’t want to normalize his tantrums, but at the same time, I think dismissive eye rolls are warranted for much of his insipid, misspelled missives.
That said, it’s Friday, and when someone of Arnold Schwarzenegger’s celebrity takes the high road and reminds Donny T. how it’s supposed to be done, it’s worth mentioning, if only to remind us that not everyone is as childish as Trump.
To wit: Donny Trash fired off this missive this morning, I guess to make himself feel big and important.
Wow, the ratings are in and Arnold Schwarzenegger got "swamped" (or destroyed) by comparison to the ratings machine, DJT. So much for….— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 6, 2017
being a movie star-and that was season 1 compared to season 14. Now compare him to my season 1. But who cares, he supported Kasich & Hillary— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 6, 2017
You know what, dude. You’re the frickin’ President-elect. Honestly, zero people care about the stupid ratings of a reality show which — by the way — Trump is still profiting from as a producer.
Anyway, Arnold didn’t take the bait. He went high when Trump went low, which probably wouldn’t get Arnie elected to office in a campaign against Trump, but at least it will gain our respect.
I wish you the best of luck and I hope you'll work for ALL of the American people as aggressively as you worked for your ratings.— Arnold (@Schwarzenegger) January 6, 2017
He even filmed a little video, reading the “better angels of our nature” quote from Lincoln.
Arnold has plenty of unsavory baggage of his own, but at least the man knows how to maintain his composure.
Speaking of Arnie’s Celebrity Apprentice: I have not seen it, nor do I ever have any plans to do so. Please don’t tell me his sign-off line is “Hasta La Vista, Baby,” because I will take back every genial thing I said about him.
