Arnold Schwarzenegger Mocks Trump’s Physique After Trump Attacks McCain
Former California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger has joined a growing list of politicians who are standing up against Donald Trump’s public attacks against the late Senator John McCain.
After the President continued to launch new attacks against an opponent who can’t speak back, the Last Action Hero star went after Trump’s abilities as a President while also attacking his portly physique.
Seven months after McCain’s death, Schwarzenegger told The Atlantic:
“He was just an unbelievable person. 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 Governator didn’t stop there, taking a shot at President Trump’s physicality. “I know he must be working out every day because he’s so unbelievably in shape.”
President Trump’s medical report in 2019 showed he had gained four pounds and clocks in at 243 pounds, making him “obese” by medical standards.
Trump has an odd theory about exercise which explains his lack of focus on his weight. “Other than golf, he considers exercise misguided, arguing that a person, like a battery, is born with a finite amount of energy,” Evan Osnos wrote for “The New Yorker.”
Schwarzenegger made his comments after Trump tweeted about McCain over the weekend. In his tweet Trump said:
Spreading the fake and totally discredited Dossier “is unfortunately a very dark stain against John McCain.” Ken Starr, Former Independent Counsel. He had far worse “stains” than this, including thumbs down on repeal and replace after years of campaigning to repeal and replace!

John McCain’s daughter, Meghan McCain spoke about Trump’s comments about her father on her show, “The View.”
“He spends his weekend obsessing over great men because he knows it, I know it, and all of you know it, he will never be a great man,” she said. “My father was his kryptonite in life and he was kryptonite in death.”
