Imagine being so self absorbed that you truly believe the president of the United States is obsessed with you.
California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger believes just that! During a recent interview with Men’s Health, the Terminator actor said that Trump is in love with him, and even claims the president wants to be him. I’m not a betting woman but I’d be willing to bet cold, hard cash that our billionaire president would want to be the likes of him.
“He’s in love with me. That’s the reality of it. With Trump, he wants to be me. I don’t think he fears me,” Schwarzenegger said, “But I remember that in the old days when we went to the wrestling matches, the way he admired people with bodies, and the way they would jump around in the ring, and to perform physical stunts and stuff like that — he had great admiration for that.”
“He asked me, how do you do that, with the movies? I mean, it’s so believable,” he continued, “He drilled down to specific questions that fascinated him. It was about How do you sell something? Like, a scene. How do you go and act out a scene so that I get affected emotionally? He was fascinated by that. How do you do this when you do interviews – that you penetrate through it and you then are totally believable?”
He added, “I always complain about Trump not being able to shift from Trump to president. Well, the reason why I say this is because I saw that with myself, that I was not able to shift from Arnold to governor.”
The two have had somewhat of a feud since Trump took a shot at Schwarzenegger in 2017 over his support of John Kasich and Hillary Clinton.
He tweeted, Wow, the ratings are in and Arnold Schwarzenegger got “swamped” (or destroyed) by comparison to the ratings machine, DJT. So much for….”
Trump added, “[B]eing a movie star-and that was season 1 compared to season 14. Now compare him to my season 1. But who cares, he supported Kasich & Hillary.”
To which Schwarzenegger responded, stating that he wanted to “smash Trump’s face” over the disagreement.
