Schwarzenegger to Trump and Celebrity Apprentice: ‘I WON’T BE BACK’

(Before It's News)

It looks like the Governator has had his fill of Celebrity Apprentice and President Trump.

Arnold Schwarzenegger says his first season as host of NBC’s “Celebrity Apprentice” is also his last.

In remarks Friday, the former California governor cited President Trump, who has repeatedly mocked the ratings of his reality TV replacement, as his reason.

“Even if asked [to do it again] I would decline,” Schwarzenegger told Empire magazine . “I learned a lot, I had a great time, it was a really great opportunity. But under the circumstances, I don’t want to do it again.”

Maybe it’s just me but that sure sounds like a diplomatic way of saying “This job seemed like a good idea at the time but it ended up sucking out loud.”

Apparently the job sucked indirectly because of Trump remaining involved. Arnold said that people are boycotting the show because Trump is still an executive producer.

“With Trump being involved in the show people have a bad taste and don’t want to participate as a spectator or sponsor or in any other way support the show. It’s a very divisive period right now and I think the show got caught up in all that division.”

Schwarzenegger’s ratings as host of “Apprentice” have lagged far behind Trump’s, finishing the season last in its time slot among the four broadcast networks.

In his remarks Friday, he blamed Trump for the bad numbers.

“It’s not about the show,” Schwarzenegger said. “Because everyone I ran into came up to me and said ‘I love the show…but I turned it off as I read Trump’s name I’m outta there.’”

“When people found out that Trump was still involved as executive producer and was still receiving money from the show, then half the people [started] boycotting it,” he added.

It probably won’t be long before Trump is trashing Schwarzenegger again on Twitter for tanking his show, but I’m pretty sure Arnold has an appropriate response for him.
