Those who thought that POTUS’ oddly restrained (for him) speech before Congress this week signaled a new era of keeping his priorities presidential and his behavior semi-rational were wrong. President Donald Trump kicked off his weekend by “u up?“-ing the beautiful creature that holds his tiny heart – the Twitter bird! This pesky “my administration might have a branch location in the Kremlin” scandal has him wrought! But not so wrought that he can’t focus on the real issues!
After a multi-tweet rant blaming former President Obama for the Russia leaks, complete with an accusation of wiretapping Trump Tower, Twitler went in on his Celebrity Apprentice replacement host Arnold Schwarzenegger. Deadline reports that Ahnold has quit the show of his own accord. Trump says he was fired because his ratings were SAD. Arnold’s exit statement says flat-out that he’s leaving because of the President Trump taste.
On Friday, Schwarzenegger said in a statement, “I loved every second of working with NBC and Mark Burnett. Everyone – from the celebrities to the crew to the marketing department – was a straight 10, and I would absolutely work with all of them again on a show that doesn’t have this baggage.”
“Even if asked [to return] I would decline.” Schwarzenegger continued, in an interview with Empire. “With Trump being involved in the show people have a bad taste and don’t want to participate as a spectator or as a sponsor or in any other way support the show. It’s a very divisive period now and I think this show got caught up in all that division.”
FAKE NEWS! Trump has the real story! His replacement was fired because no one was watching. Apologize!
Arnold Schwarzenegger isn’t voluntarily leaving the Apprentice, he was fired by his bad (pathetic) ratings, not by me. Sad end to great show

POTUS has been mocking Arnold’s Apprentice for low ratings from the get-go. He’s weirdly still obsessed with everyone knowing how amazing his ratings were when he hosted, and how he’s the best, and an insecure rage baby, insecure rage baby, insecure rage baby. The end.
He’ll still collecting a producing check and probably future royalties, so what’s his greedy-ass problem? Maybe he’s sad that the show probably ending means celebrities like LaToya Jackson, Gary Busey, and Bret Michaels will no longer have a televisual shelter from the dried-up career prospects storm? Donald Trump is all about caring, you know. It’s not about the money and the narcissism, it’s about the selflessness.
