Arnold Schwarzenegger is back and he’s more than willing to offers some helpful advice to the hysterical liberals who outnumber him about a gadzillion to one in Hollywood: “stop whining” about Donald Trump winning and “come together” with the rest of the country.
Schwarzenegger is in the news again because he is the host and “new boss” of “The New Celebrity Apprentice,” for which Trump will continue to be an executive producer. In an interview with TODAY’s Matt Lauer this week, the former Governator, who did not support Trump during the campaign, had a word for all those pouting about Trump’s historic upset of Clinton.
“Now he’s elected, and now it is very important that we all support the president, and that we all come together and we stop whining and it becomes one nation,” he said.

The Terminator and Commando star also floated a few possibilities for his new spin on Trump’s iconic “You’re fired!” catchphrase, including “‘You’re terminated.’ Or, ‘Hasta la vista, baby.’ Or ‘Hit the road,’ or ‘Consider this a divorce,’ or ‘Get to the chopper.'”
Speaking of the “Governator” and TV series, here’s the trailer to Marvel’s abruptly abandoned series, which was going to “depict Schwarzenegger taking up superheroics following his exit from political office, using his enormous wealth and tremendous girth to fight crime in the dangerous streets of West Los Angeles.” As promising as that sounds, producers unfortunately pulled the plug on the series before the first episode aired after revelations that Schwarzenegger had fathered a child with someone other than Maria Shriver:
