“He will go down in history as the worst president ever” Schwarzenegger declares on Trump

Former California governor and actor Arnold Schwarzenegger decried Wednesday’s pro-Trump mob attack on the U.S. Capitol as an act of hatred that recalled Kristallnacht, the nightlong destruction of Jewish-owned businesses and institutions by the Nazis in 1938.

 “Wednesday was the ‘day of broken glass’ right here in the United States,” Schwarzenegger said in a video posted to Twitter on Sunday morning that has been viewed more than 17 million times.

“The mob,” Schwarzenegger said over dramatic music, “did not just shatter the windows of the Capitol. They shattered the ideas we took for granted. They did not just break down the doors of the building that housed American democracy. They trampled the very principles on which our country was founded.”

Schwarzenegger, a Republican who served a governor of California from 2003 to 2011, argued that Trump “sought a coup by misleading people with lies” in his baseless attempt to overturn the results of the presidential election, won by former vice president Joe Biden. “My father and our neighbors were misled also with lies, and I knew where such lies lead,” he said, noting that the Holocaust “all started with lies, and lies, and lies and intolerance.”

“President Trump is a failed leader,” Schwarzenegger declared. “He will go down in history as the worst president ever. The good thing is that he soon will be as irrelevant as an old tweet.”

He accused his fellow Republicans of “spinelessness” and said that “they’re complicit with those who carried the flag of self-righteous insurrection into the Capitol.” But, he continued, “It did not work. Our democracy held firm.”

 “America will come back from these dark days and shine our lights once again,” Schwarzenegger said. “I believe, as shaken as we are by the events of recent days, we will come out stronger out because we now understand what can be lost.”

In the video, Schwarzenegger brandished a sword from “Conan the Barbarian,” the 1982 film in which he starred, as a metaphor for American democracy, saying that “the more you temper a sword, the stronger it becomes.”

He encouraged Americans to rally behind the president-elect before directly addressing those involved in Wednesday’s attack, saying, “To those who think they can overturn the United States Constitution, know this: You will never win.”
