Arnold Schwarzenegger Quits 'Celebrity Apprentice'

Arnold Schwarzenegger quits after hosting one season of "Celebrity Apprentice". You already know whose fault it is but if you need a reinforcement, yes, it's because of Donald Trump. You might recall that when the show was airing, President Donald Trump (and former host) literally "prayed" for Arnold Schwarzenegger because of dropped ratings. Yes, it's true that ratings did go down when the show returned but not for the reason Trump might think.

The president didn't just serve as host to the show, he executive produced it. Now that he's running the country he's stepped down from the hosting duty but still served as executive producer. Did rating drop simply because Arnold wasn't cutthroat enough? Maybe. However, ratings also dropped because many of the viewers refused to watch a show that was produced by Donald Trump after his controversial campaign.


Arnold announced Friday that he won't be back (get it?) telling Empire magazine "When people found out that Trump was still involved as executive producer and was still receiving money from the show, then half the people [started] boycotting it," the body building icon went on to express how much he loved every minute of being there and "With Trump being involved in the show people have a bad taste and don't want to participate as a spectator or as a sponsor or in any other way support the show." Yikes.

Who do you think they should get to replace Arnold? Did you enjoy the latest season?
