Arnold Schwarzenegger Takes the High Road After Donny Trash's Petty Tweets

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.

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.

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.
