(Before It's News)

Arnold Schwarzenegger’s online feud with the President who also happens to be his show’s executive producer has been chronicled here at RedState.  On the radio with Michael Smerconish, the host of Celebrity Apprentice and former California Governor explained the real reason Trump spends so much time tweeting and talking about him.

Arnold says the President is in love with him.

Only as the interview was wrapping did Smerconish, sort of sheepishly, say he would be “derelict if I didn’t ask you why do you think the president is fixated on you. Why does he keep talking about you through his Twitter feed?”

“I think he’s in love with me,” Schwarzenegger deadpanned, which seemed to take Smerconish by surprise.

“Is that what it is? Smerconich asked.

“Yeah, I think so,” Schwarzenegger replied, not budging.

“You’ve had a long relationship with him,” Smerconish continued, flat-footedly.

“Oh yes,” Schwarzenegger said, clearly enjoying the moment.

“That’s’ all you are saying on that,” Smerconish conceded, sadly, as Schwarzenegger chuckled.

“Thank you governor,” Smerconish added.

“Absolutely!” Schwarzenegger laughed.

Prior to this revelation Schwarzenegger was making a good deal of sense talking about gerrymandering.

Smerconish interviewed California’s former governor for his satellite radio show. Mostly the two men discussed gerrymandering – the time-honored tradition of manipulating boundaries of an electoral constituency, to favor a political party. Schwarzenegger’s not a fan. This, he says, is how you wind up with a Congress that has a popularity of 15% but a re-election rate of 97%, and how citizens wind up with politicians who are party servants rather than public servants.

Maybe it was his position on gerrymandering that captured Trump’s heart.
