Arnold Schwarzenegger To Trump: "Why Don't We Switch Jobs?"

2017, y'all.

Posted on February 2, 2017, at 12:55 p.m. ET

At Thursday's annual National Prayer Breakfast, President Trump kicked off his speech by asking religious leaders to pray for Arnold Schwarzenegger's Apprentice ratings, as well as bragging about his own.

Trump at the National Prayer Breakfast says he wants to pray for Arnold Schwarzenegger’s “Apprentice” ratings

He said:

He’s a special, special friend, Mark Burnett, for the wonderful introduction. So true. So true. I said to the agent, I’m sorry. The only thing wrong, I got on the phone, fired him myself, because he said you don’t want to do it, it’ll never work, it’ll never work. My agent said it will never work, you don’t want to do it. But I really fired him after it became the number one show. It became so successful and he wanted a commission…that’s what I really said. But we have tremendous success on The Apprentice. When I ran for president, I had to leave the show. That’s when I knew for sure I was doing it. They hired a big, big movie star, Arnold Schwarzenegger, to take my place. And we know how that turned out. The ratings went right down the tubes. It’s been a total disaster. And Mark will never, ever bet against Trump again. And I want to just pray for Arnold, if we can, for those ratings. But we’ve have had an amazing life together, the last 14 years. An outstanding man. Thank you for introducing me. Appreciate it. It’s a great honor.

Less than an hour later, Schwarzenegger fired back with a video of his own, in which he suggested they "switch jobs."

"Hey Donald, I have a great idea: Why don't we switch jobs?" Schwarzenegger says in the video, which he posted on Twitter. "You take over TV because you’re such an expert in ratings, and I take over your job, so then people can finally sleep comfortably again.”

This isn't the first time the two, who've both served as reality TV hosts and Republican politicans, have duked it out over show ratings.

Wow, the ratings are in and Arnold Schwarzenegger got "swamped" (or destroyed) by comparison to the ratings machine, DJT. So much for....

being a movie star-and that was season 1 compared to season 14. Now compare him to my season 1. But who cares, he supported Kasich & Hillary

Trump, who still serves as an executive producer on The Apprentice, called Schwarzenegger out last month for low ratings, saying he got "swamped" in comparison to himself, who he referred to as "the ratings machine, DJT."

In response to the then president-elect, Schwarzenegger — dare I say — terminated him. (Sorry, couldn't resist.)

There's nothing more important than the people's work, @realDonaldTrump.

I wish you the best of luck and I hope you'll work for ALL of the American people as aggressively as you worked for your ratings.

Please study this quote from Lincoln's inaugural, @realDonaldTrump. It inspired me every day I was Governor, and I…

All in all, people truly can't believe the wild times we're living in.

The shadddddeeeeee in this video is priceless😂😂😂😂😂😂😂

is this real life

We live in a weird-ass world.


I can't wait to be dead
