    and what is the show going to be about?

    muscle building?

    certainly not running a business or governing as he knows nothing about either of those occupations

    He has a "you're fired" line in True Lies. I can't post a link because I'm posting from my phone in moose camp.

    It would be nice if there was someone with a modicum of business experience. Like that last guy they used with the squirrel hat. He was a d-bag but at least had business experience.

    Running joke online is that Trump lost his job to an immigrant. :rofl:

    Actually, I think Ah-nuld is a pretty shrewd entrepreneur. He molded himself into a brand name starting back with the bodybuilding documentary, "Pumping Iron." He was noted in Hollywood for his attention to detail and quality control in the movies in which he would appear.

    In the first "Terminator" movie, he was written into the script to play Reese. It was Ah-nuld who read the script, assessed his own persona, and took James Cameron aside and suggested he play the Terminator instead, because it was a better fit. The rest is history.

    The guy has brains and has pretty much optimized its use to bring him to where he is. I certainly wouldn't marginalize what he has accomplished.

    I think it'll be catchy to hear that thick Austrian accent say, "Yoah fai-uhed." It'll probably become as viral and iconic as his "I'll be back" and "Get out." :)

    WAAHHHH????

    Red Sox? Yankees?? C'mon!

    Darrell Hammond did the best Trump stuff on SNL. Over a decade ago! WOW.

    "Happy Chanookahahhhhhhh, The Apprentice!"

    Never been a fan. I recall the first time the Taj went into bankruptcy. I lost all respect for him. He never did anything to help regain it. He's a buffoon. A smart, successful buffoon. But a buffoon. "Look at me! Watch me! Pay attention to me! Please!"

    Here you go ...

    Business career
    Schwarzenegger has had a highly successful business career.[12][24] Following his move to the United States, Schwarzenegger became a "prolific goal setter" and would write his objectives at the start of the year on index cards, like starting a mail order business or buying a new car – and succeed in doing so.[19] By the age of 30, Schwarzenegger was a millionaire, well before his career in Hollywood. His financial independence came from his success as a budding entrepreneur with a series of successful business ventures and investments.
    Bricklaying business
    In 1968, Schwarzenegger and fellow bodybuilder Franco Columbu started a bricklaying business. The business flourished thanks to the pair's marketing savvy and an increased demand following the 1971 San Fernando earthquake.[94][95] Schwarzenegger and Columbu used profits from their bricklaying venture to start a mail order business, selling bodybuilding and fitness-related equipment and instructional tapes.[7][94]
    Investments
    Schwarzenegger rolled profits from the mail order business and his bodybuilding competition winnings into his first real estate investment venture: an apartment building he purchased for $10,000. He would later go on to invest in a number of real estate holding companies.[96][97]
    Schwarzenegger was a founding celebrity investor in the Planet Hollywood chain of international theme restaurants (modeled after the Hard Rock Cafe) along with Bruce Willis, Sylvester Stallone and Demi Moore. Schwarzenegger severed his financial ties with the business in early 2000.[98][99] Schwarzenegger said the company had not had the success he had hoped for, claiming he wanted to focus his attention on "new US global business ventures" and his movie career.[98]
    He also invested in a shopping mall in Columbus, Ohio. He has talked about some of those who have helped him over the years in business: "I couldn't have learned about business without a parade of teachers guiding me... from Milton Friedman to Donald Trump... and now, Les Wexner and Warren Buffett. I even learned a thing or two from Planet Hollywood, such as when to get out! And I did!"[17] He has significant ownership in Dimensional Fund Advisors, an investment firm.[100] Schwarzenegger is also the owner of Arnold's Sports Festival, which he started in 1989 and is held annually in Columbus, Ohio. It is a festival that hosts thousands of international health and fitness professionals which has also expanded into a three-day expo. He also owns a movie production company called Oak Productions, Inc. and Fitness Publications, a joint publishing venture with Simon & Schuster.[101]
    Restaurant
    In 1992, Schwarzenegger and his wife opened a restaurant in Santa Monica called Schatzi On Main. Schatzi literally means "little treasure," colloquial for "honey" or "darling" in German. In 1998, he sold his restaurant.[102]

    great, he could lift bricks and sell roids by the mail

    He sure didn't care much about businesses while he was governor.

    and just signed all the socialists bills into law, which hurt businesses

    Ah-nold IS a business. He's his own brand, his own business.

    I'm not saying he's the best ever, but's he's a multi-millionaire.

    So, there's that.
