Schwarzenegger Compares the GOP to the Titanic

The former governor of California and current actor may be out of office, but he's obviously not done with politics

Arnold Schwarzenegger may be out of office — but he’s not done with politics.

The former governor and current actor has regularly made his opinions very well known on many topics including President Donald J. Trump and the environment.

The “Terminator” star recently set his sights on the Republican Party itself — and said it was “dying.”

In an interview with CNN — of course — commentator Michael Smerconish brought up a past comment by Schwarzenegger in which the actor compared the Republican Party to the Titanic and said it was failing at the box office.

“Well, you know, I told the Republican Party at the Republican convention — it was like 10 years ago that they were dying at the box office,” Schwarzenegger said. “The reason why I said it was because their policies were such that they were not really including everybody.”

The actor said the GOP is dying because it is ignoring issues involving the environment, education and health care, which he theorized has lost the party scores of women voters.

“I see it like the Titanic,” he reiterated.

Schwarzenegger said the Democrats were not in a much better position, as they’ve gone too far to the Left for many average Americans.

As if to show how irrelevant his political thinking actually is, the actor also said one of the people that Washington, D.C., needs in order to shake things up right now is … John Kasich?

Stick to the movies, Arnold.
