President Donald Trump, attending the National Prayer Breakfast, broke into a stand up comedy routine criticizing Arnold Schwarzenegger.
Schwarzenegger became Trump's replacement on the reality TV show, The Apprentice, after Trump decided to run for president.
At the time, the Trumpster only had praise for Schwarzenegger, tweeting: "Congrats to my friend @Schwarzenegger who is doing next season's Celebrity Apprentice. He'll be great & will raise lots of $ for charity."
However, the ratings for the new season of the show have dropped, much to the delight of Trump's ego.
At the National Prayer Breakfast this morning, Trump mentioned Arnold and the show:
“The ratings went right down the tubes. It’s been a total disaster. And Mark [Burnett] will never, ever bet against Trump again, and I want to just pray for Arnold, if we can, for those ratings.”

Daniel Ketchell, a spokesman for Schwarzenegger, issued this response: “Arnold is praying that President Trump can start improving his own approval ratings, which were the worst in history for an incoming president, by taking his job seriously and working inclusively.”
Arnold posted this response a short time later:
"Hey Donald, I have a great idea. Why don't we switch jobs?" Schwarzenegger said. "You take over TV since you're such an expert on ratings and I take over your job and then people can finally sleep comfortably again."
