It does seem like a bit of a stretch to incorporate a story about “The Apprentice” into a National Prayer Breakfast, but what’s a President to do? He’s got to be there, he has to talk about something and he’s not as qualified to address theological matters as those who do it for a living.
He certainly wouldn’t want to inadvertently say the wrong thing at a time like that, especially with the packs of wolves dressed up as journalists ready to spring into a feeding frenzy at the slightest opportunity. Trump’s comments were directed at an individual, Arnold Schwarzenegger, a big boy who can probably take it. He might even benefit from the exposure and resulting discussion.
With President Trump there was no admonishment, no lecture, no dime store “wisdom” from some self-endowed “expert on everything” about “high horses” was forthcoming. He took some jabs at a RINO from the state where Democrats have arguably made the biggest mess in the entire country, but kept it to a presentation of banter between two TV rivals. One might entertain the possibility that, since Trump remains as an Executive Producer, he’s offering a ratings lifeline to his flailing successor.
He delivered a good speech, saying, ” freedom is a gift from God not from the government,” pledging to protect religious freedom for everyone in the United States. But Mr. Trump is our President, he’s not a Pastor, and unlike his predecessor he doesn’t see a need to preach to us as a spokesperson for the “greatness of Islam” or any other religion. That’s not his job. A light-hearted jab at himself or boasting about his situation and those associated with it are part of his limited arsenal.
President Trump joked about “The Apprentice,” the ratings drop that came with his departure and replacement by Arnold Schwarzenegger and its effect on the show’s creator, Mark Burnett.
President Trump said, “When I ran for president, I had to leave the show. And they hired a big, big movie star, Arnold Schwarzenegger, to take my place. And we know how that turned out. The ratings went right down the tubes, it’s been a total disaster and Mark will never, ever bet against Trump again.”
Of course Schwarzenegger had to respond to that, which he did in tweet form, with a proposition for Mr. Trump. Addressing the President somewhat disrespectfully, the apparently miffed liberal muscle-man said, “Hey Donald, I’ve got a great idea. Why don’t we switch jobs. You take over TV, cause you’re such an expert in ratings, and I take over your job. And then people can finally sleep comfortably again, hmmm?”
It sounds like Arnold is the one who’s dreaming and we would not sleep comfortably with another globalist tool like him in the White House. He made an even bigger mess of California than he has of the television show. We’d be up at night, every night. Stick to your failing show, Arnold; just ride it out and cash the checks.
