Arnold Schwarzenegger Slams Trump in Defense of McCain

Arnold Schwarzenegger recently came to the late John McCains defense by slamming President Trump.

According to Fox News:

Actor and former Gov. of California Arnold Schwarzenegger isn’t standing for President Trump’s attacks on the late Sen. John McCain. The “Terminator” star took jabs of his own at the president while calling his previous comments “unacceptable.”

Schwarzenegger commented on the controversy surrounding the president’s statementsboth in interviews and on social media criticizing and insulting McCain, a military veteran and prisoner of war, seven months after his death.

“He was just an unbelievable person,” Schwarzenegger told The Atlantic. “So an attack on him is absolutely unacceptable if he’s alive or dead—but even twice as unacceptable since he passed away a few months ago. It doesn’t make any sense whatsoever to do that. I just think it’s a shame that the president lets himself down to that kind of level. We will be lucky if everyone in Washington followed McCain’s example, because he represented courage.”

The former bodybuilder also took a shot at Trump’s physique, joking that the president needs to be focusing on infrastructure and immigration reform when he wakes up to do his morning workout.

Trump has not responded to Arnold yet, but it wouldn’t be surprising if he does so with a Tweet in the near future.
