The former California Governor and Terminator star Arnold Schwarzenegger fat-shamed Donald Trump while appearing on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” on Monday night, questioning the former president’s claim that he weighs 215 pounds in his Fulton County jail booking records.

Schwarzenegger Fat-Shames Trump
“You are one of the foremost experts on the male physique, bodybuilding, etc.,” said the radically liberal late night host Jimmy Kimmel. “When you size him [Trump] up, what would you guess that man weighs?”
“You know, I don’t really know how much he weighs,” Schwarzenegger replied. “I can tell you one thing, that if he would ask me what should he do for fitness, I would just say, ‘Run around your cell three times and you’re going to be in great, great shape.’”
“So you think that it’s possible he weighs 215 pounds?” Kimmel asked.
“Yes, as much as it is possible that there is no climate change,” Schwarzenegger fired back. “And as much as it’s possible that we don’t need to reduce pollution.”
“Look, we all know the way he is, and if it makes him feel good to tell everyone he weighs 215, I think everyone laughs about it because he does not look like he weighs 215,” he added. “He’s a little more like 315.”

Kimmel Mocks Trump’s Weight
Kimmel had previously mocked Trump for his weight earlier in the show, which was his first back in the wake of the Hollywood writer’s strike ending, according to The New York Post.
“Every time something happened in the news, I would get texts asking me if I was bummed we didn’t have a show that night,” Kimmel said. “Mostly, I was fine but the one that really got me was when they booked Trump in Georgia and he self-reported his weight at 215 pounds. I almost crossed the picket line for that.”
Kimmel went on to bring up Judge Arthur F. Engoron.

“If I was the judge in the case he has going on in New York right now, I’d start the trial and say, ‘Listen, we’re going to get to the fraud thing, but first hop up on this scale, big fella,’” he quipped. “That means he’s 30 pounds lighter than his last physical. When he was president, he was 245 pounds, which means he’s either lying or the Colonel is now frying his chicken in Ozempic.”
Late night returned last night and naturally they couldn’t wait to talk about Trump. Jimmy Kimmel: “But the one that really got me was when they booked Trump in Georgia, and he self-reported his weight at 215 pounds. I almost crossed the picket line for that.” (1/5) pic.twitter.com/lFrjkBAbBS

Schwarzenegger Claims To Be ‘A Proud Republican’
Elsewhere in his interview with Schwarzenegger, Kimmel said that the former California governor no longer “[seemed] like a Republican,” referencing his climate change activism and his views on various issues.
“I’m a proud Republican. And I’ll tell you why: Because I’m a traditional Republican,” Schwarzenegger replied, according to The Hill. “Remember that the one that put most of the land aside for future generations was Teddy Roosevelt, who was a Republican.”
“Ronald Reagan created the Air Resources Board in California, the most important board in order to really be able to execute all the laws that we passed,” he continued. “President Nixon created the EPA, the Environmental Protection Agency, in Washington.”
“These were people that was sane Republicans, and that really were thinking more about what was good for the people, rather than being stuck in the ideological corners and they just can’t get along — which is totally ridiculous because as we all know, especially since I learned a lot of my lessons from sports — that you cannot win as win as a team if you don’t work together,” he added.
Former Republican Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger believes the Dems will have an easy win if Trump is the nominee.
He’s sad Republicans can’t find a “new talent, a new face, a reasonable, smart, intelligent person that can lead this country in a Republican way”

Kimmel argued that the traditional Republican Party “doesn’t exist anymore,” with Schwarzenegger responding by saying, “But we have to inspire that.”
“It doesn’t mean that we should run the other way or we should give up. There’s moments in life where it needs leadership and where you have to encourage people to work together,” he stated. “I think what we need is really leadership to bring people together and to teach both parties not to look at the other side as the enemy.”
“We are all on the same side of the fence,” Schwarzenegger concluded. “We are Americans, and we have to come together.”
It’s pretty hard for us to come together as a nation when one side is still obsessed with taking down Trump. Shame on Schwarzenegger for pathetically trying to appeal to liberals by fat-shaming a former president.
