Donald Trump Claims Arnold Schwarzenegger Was Actually Fired from Celebrity Apprentice Due to ‘Pathetic’ Ratings

A day after Arnold Schwarzenegger revealed that he would not host another season of The Celebrity Apprentice because of the “baggage” associated with Donald Trump, Trump is unsurprisingly presenting an alternate account of events. Taking to Twitter, Trump claimed that — par for the course during his Apprentice reign — Schwarzenegger was actually fired. “Arnold Schwarzenegger isn’t voluntarily leaving the Apprentice, he was fired by his bad (pathetic) ratings, not by me. Sad end to great show,” he wrote.
Over the course of Schwarzenegger’s brief tenure, the president, who remains credited and paid as an executive producer on the show, has repeatedly gone after Schwarzenegger’s performance. He specifically blames Schwarzenegger for a ratings drop, despite evidence of the show’s long, steady decline. Despite Trump’s tweet, no known decision has been made about The Celebrity Apprentice’s future.
Both the Terminator and the extremely polemic president of the U.S. have been going at it for the last couple of weeks, without any of them showing any signs of giving in, stopping this ‘debate’, or just admitting who is wrong and who is right; this all seems like it would go on for more than we think it will, and who knows what consequences it might bring for either of the parties.
