Schwarzenegger for Senate?

California GOP circles are buzzing about the prospect of the Governator serving in Donald Trump’s Washington.

SAN FRANCISCO — Former California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger — the “Terminator” action hero who made “I’ll be back” one of filmdom’s most iconic phrases — may be mulling a political comeback, according to several GOP political insiders in California.

The prospect of Schwarzenegger’s return to elected politics in a 2018 U.S. Senate run — possibly as an independent — is generating increasing buzz in state Republican circles, fueled by the former governor’s seeming ability to get under the skin of President Donald Trump on social media.

The president’s caustic tweets about Schwarzenegger, the recent host of “Celebrity Apprentice,” and their running feud has sparked talk that the intensely competitive Schwarzenegger — a seven-time Mr. Olympia world bodybuilding champ — may be interested in more than merely a verbal posedown with Trump.

His entry into the 2018 Senate race — when Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein would be 85 years old and up for reelection — “would give Arnold the stage to jam Trump for the next 16 months,’’ according to one veteran GOP strategist who spoke on condition of anonymity.

It would also enable Schwarzenegger to draw a contrast with the president on key issues, including climate change, political reform and even immigration.

    Schwarzenegger will have HOLLYWEIRD behind Him………..
    along with the HISPANIC Community.
    I’m sure His baby mama and son will be his cheerleaders.
    Hmmmmmm.

      Schwarzenegger is a product of Commiefornia’s socialist agenda, just as ALL of their governors have been, including Ronnie Raygun! We need to stop electing celebrities and career politicians.

  • george briar

    he will loose as a governor he stunk and didn’t have a clue. him running for senate is dumber than Oprah running for President, neither will win but it will be fun to laugh at their stupidity trying.

    • Snake

      Don’t underestimate their (scharzenegger and DOPErah) chances in politics. Their are far too many sheeple (including conservatives) that will vote for both of them. But I love your pessimism, or is that optimism?

  • disqus_rEWjgfyzIp

    He is the same as pelois, in CA eyes as they didnt have a choice but to elect her. Its sad when the people have no clue on gods green earth and keep electing the same idiots time and time again. Face it people, they did no good the first time, you think they are going to grow a brain and do some thing this time.

  • undershaft

    We need another airhead celebrity in public life. Perhaps he and Chelsea couldl team up as a modern day odd couple.

  • VirgoVince

    Aren’t there any REAL Republicans in CAlifornicate to oppose him??
    It would be GREAT if he lost!! He’s NOT everyone’s Hero, anymore!!

  • Della Furlow Wicks

    why do celebrities keep trying to involve themselves in politics?
    Its.pretty evident Arnold has a real jealousy of President Trump & feels the need to prove he’s better. now that he failed that task on celebrity apprentice he’s gonna try the political avenue. The same scenario exists with Mark Cuban! i wonder if its due to testosterone, liberalism or just jealousy?

    • libertybells2

      Jealousy coming from two died-in-the-wool narcissists.

  • Rob Manwiller

    I’ll file this email in my ‘Trump Info’ folder, under the “Humor section”. ROTFLMAO!

  • coleche

    He can be governor, or hold a state seat. But, He isn’t qualified to be a congressman according to our Constitution.

  • libertybells2

    Too much baggage. Impregnating his household maid while married and fathering a child is anathema to anyone other than snowflakes to be a leader.

  • If the only reason he may run is to screw with the President, I hope he chokes on a Twinkie. I’ve seen every movie he’s made and always liked him in the movies. However, as others have noted, he made a poor Governor. Doubt he’d be any good in the senate. At least he can’t run for pres.
