Arnold Schwarzenegger calls Trump the ‘Worst President Ever’ After the Capitol Riot

The former GOP California Governor and current action star condemned President Trump and the GOP supporters that “enabled his lies” in a lengthy Twitter video addressing the Capitol riot. 

Seated in front of the American and California flags, Schwarzenegger reminded Americans that he is an immigrant from Austria, then likened the siege on the Capitol building to an incident that is widely considered to be the beginning of the Holocaust.  

“I grew up in Austria. I’m very aware of Kristallnacht, or the night of broken glass. It was a night of rampage against the Jews carried out in 1938 by the Nazi equivalent of the Proud Boys. Wednesday was the day of broken glass right here in the United States,” he began.

“The broken glass was in the windows of the United States Capitol. But the mob did not just shatter the windows of the Capitol, they shattered the ideals we took for granted,” the Terminator star continued. “They did not just break down the doors of the building that housed American democracy, they trampled the very principles on which our country was founded.”

 During Kristallnacht, Jewish homes, businesses, and synagogues were destroyed throughout Germany, 30,000 Jewish men were arrested and sent to concentration camps. Schwarzenegger was born two years after WWII concluded. He explained that he grew up “surrounded by broken men drinking away the guilt over their participation in the most evil regime in history.” 

“It all started with lies, and lies, and lies and intolerance. So, being from Europe, I’ve seen firsthand how things can spin out of control,” he noted. Then mentioned that people feared the same thing could happen in the United States, though he does not believe the country is headed in that direction, but that we must be “aware of the dire consequences of selfishness and cynicism.  

He then lashed out at Trump for “misleading people with lies,” to incite the incident. “President Trump sought to overturn the results of an election, and of a fair election. He sowed the coup by misleading people with lies. My father and our neighbors were misled also with lies, and I know where such lies lead.”

Schwarzenegger slammed Trump and his political supporters. “President Trump is a failed leader. He will go down in history as the worst president ever. The good thing is that he soon will be as irrelevant as an old tweet,” he stated. “But what are we to make of those elected officials who have enabled his lies and his treachery? I will remind them of what Teddy Roosevelt said – patriotism means to stand by the country. It does not mean to stand by the president.”

He accused “spineless” GOP members of being complicit with “those who carried the flag of self-righteous insurrection into the capital.” Then called for public servants to serve higher ideals, “something larger than their own power,” and party.

The actor said that “America will come back from these dark days,” and held up a sword from his 1982 film Conan the Barbarian, to illustrate that the nation would come back stronger.  

“Here’s the thing about swords, the more you temper a sword, the stronger it becomes,” in reference to the heating process used to harden a blade. “Our democracy is like the steel of this sword, the more it is tempered, the stronger it becomes.”

He concluded his video by imploring Americans, despite which political party they support, to put democracy first and embrace Joe Biden as the president.

Arnold just doesn’t get it. I don’t know if he is out of the loop. If the media he follows has him buffaloed? Misinformed? There is no comparison between Trump and any (D). This Capitol fiasco is truly unfortunate.I do think Trump should have been more cautious and emphasized “peaceful protest”. The media and Dems are vultures and are there to blow up any questionable scenario in Trump’s face. And this was one of those instances.

And an also ran, overpaid actor that was front and center to the destruction of California, and went along like a paid off puppet.
This is rich coming from such an abject, immoral, washed up Hollywood actor.
I think I covered the important points.

Yah, given his past, he isn’t a stand up kinda guy. Go back to your homeland. I lost all respect for that traitor many years ago. His words are irrelevant. He has nothing to say about anyone. He’s just another hollywierd bully. President Trump is an outstanding person. He did more for these United States than any president I know. The only reason he didn’t get as much done as he could have is because of blocking treasonous deep state democrats. I’m glad “we the real people” were able to have a president for the people and not a power, money hungry, violent non-law abiding, selfish democrat.

The ignorance displayed by these comments are astounding! For someone who was around as the results of the Nazi horror were becoming known, his interpretation of what happened and his comparison to the USA is completely upside down, I do not think many people realize that the Nazi party ment Socialism. What has occured over the past 4 years is a rise of socialism and an attempt to stop it by President Trump. The riots and killings are typical of leftist thugs and any dissent is shut down in any way possible, even violently. When a retired police officer tried to defend a friends property he was killed in cold blood and the videos of the murder was distributed on social media. Where was Arnolds criticism? He is a tool of the left and needs to be ignored.

The time line of the people going into the capital building does not coincide with the presidents speech. He was still giving his non threading speech when the building was entered. It would take at least 25 to 40 minutes for the people listening to his speech to reach the capital building. The actions were well underway . Dont be fooled. This is a set up.

I thought he claimed to be a democrat or is it his democrat wife talking. Trump never told his marchers to riot and they did not. They left when told to and Antifa moved in just like they have been doing in other cities. The marchers march and leave and Antifa takes over burning, breaking in, beating people up, fighting the police, etc. Look for a hat with the front turned to the back in the videos, and black or dark clothes underneath their jackets, that is the signal for Antifa people to recognize other Antifa peolpe. One Trump guy told an Antifa guy Hey we don’t do that and
Antifa guy kept fighting the police and got into the capital. Trump guy told his friend let’s go and like the other 34,000 marchers left while Antifa guys did their thing for their democrat/commie bosses. Why is the media missing this or are they not looking deliberately. I think Schuwenegger’s heart surgery affected his eyes.

You’ll not be back! You called millions of americans the worst people ever. I personally, am appalled at your remarks. Who are you, truly, and what makes your opinion of others correct? You live in a closed and gated world of make believe. You are like so many of you actors and activists who are guilty of all you blame others for. Stolen valor! You’re guilty. Brandishing weapons, your guilty! Sexual misconduct, you’re guilty. Child abuse and harmful indoctrination, guilty. Thanks for your misguided APPRECIATION of the nation who gave you life, liberty and a pursuit of happiness.
