Arnold Schwarzenegger posted a video message on Twitter and Instagram in which he harshly criticized the actions of President Donald Trump, who refuses to admit defeat in the election.
The actor drew a parallel between Trump supporters and the Nazis, whose regime “began with lies and intolerance.” And he compared the storming of the Capitol to Kristallnacht in 1938, when the Nazis carried out anti-Jewish pogroms across Germany.
“Trump tried to stage a coup by leading people with lies. My father and his neighbors were also led the wrong way with lies, and I know where such lies lead,” he said.
Schwarzenegger called Trump “the worst president in American history” and said that he will soon be forgotten, while the United States itself will emerge from the current crisis stronger, like a knight’s sword, which only gets better after hardening. Talking about it, the actor took out the sword of Conan the Barbarian and showed it.
Eh, Arnie, and you were loved and respected by many. Minus Schwartz, as they say.
