It seems everyone is abandoning Donald Trump now, the soon-to-be former President totally disgraced in the public eye following the attempted coup in Washington DC last week. Thus, now that America is literally counting the days until he’s fucked off, a prominent Republican, Hollywood heavyweight and former Governor has thrown his own two cents in. Of course, you know who we’re talking about, none other than old mate Arnold Schwarzenegger.
Taking to his social media over the weekend, Arnie didn’t hold back, immediately condemning the attack by the Trump supporters along with Trump himself. He went so far as to compare the coup to Kristallnacht AKA The Night Of Broken Glass, which was a pogrom against Jews in Austria in the lead up to the second World War.
“Wednesday was the Day of Broken Glass right here in the United States. The broken glass was in the windows of the United States Capitol. But the mob did not just shatter the windows of the Capitol, they shattered the ideas we took for granted,” he said emotionally.
“They did not just break down the doors of the building that housed American democracy, they trampled the very principles on which our country was founded.”
He also took the time to shit all over Trump’s legacy calling him “a failed leader” and assured viewers that “he will go down in history as the worst president ever.”
It all sounds pretty on the mark and sound right? It definitely is, but what’s got people talking is the random moment he busted out his sword from Conan.
“Now, you see this sword? This is Conan’s sword,” he says as he introduces it. He then makes a metaphor for how swords are made in the fire and beaten into shape, then comparing it to democracy, stressing that “The more it’s tempered, the stronger it becomes.”
Nothing like a bit of self-promo for some political inspiration. Check out the full clip below.
