Schwarzenegger says Trump was like a ‘little wet noodle’ next to Putin


Renowned actor and former California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger (R) on Monday tweeted a video blasting President Donald Trump over his press conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin, the Hill reports.

“It was embarrassing. You stood there like a little wet noodle, like a little fan boy,” Schwarzenegger said in the 45-second selfie video as he addressed Trump.  “I was asking myself when you are going to ask him for an autograph or a selfie or something like that.”

Schwarzenegger added that Trump “sold out” the U.S. intelligence community and justice system by not acknowledging Russia’s interference in the 2016 presidential election.

“You’re the president of the United States. You shouldn’t do that,” Schwarzenegger said. “What’s the matter with you?”

High-ranking Republicans including House Speaker Paul Ryan and Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz) also condemned Trump’s remarks at Monday’s press conference in Helsinki. McCain said Trump’s visit to Europe was a “recent low point in the history of the American Presidency.”
