Arnold Schwarzenegger shared a serious message Tuesday, via video, in which he demanded to know why President Trump’s proposed government budget for the coming year makes deep cuts in after-school programs for kids.
“It doesn’t make any sense!” the Republican said. “Maybe that’s what you did at Trump University and stuff like that, but that doesn’t make any sense normally, so put it back in, OK?”

While the Terminator star and former California governor’s protest of Trump’s decision attracted some support, it was his facial hair that really stole the spotlight. People were loving the beard, which he’s worn often in recent months.
Off point entirely but damn Arnold I love that beard!

Just terminate him please, Arnold.

Arnold’s latest step in his redemption arc is at the point where he grows the beard that when someone asks him to do a job and he just stares grizzly at his stein and says “I’m not that man anymore.” https://t.co/ZopsMnbFC0

The story was reminiscent of what happened when John Travolta sent his followers well wishes over the New Year’s holiday and all anyone could talk about was his bald head.
Many of the comments that weren’t focused on Schwarzenegger’s beard cheered on the idea of him running for president, which he’s unable to do at the moment. The former bodybuilder was born in Austria, not in the United States, as the Constitution requires of presidents.
