“Wow, the ratings are in and Arnold Schwarzenegger got ‘swamped’ (or destroyed) by comparison to the ratings machine, DJT. So much for,” Trump tweeted Friday morning, ” being a movie star-and that was season 1 compared to season 14. Now compare him to my season 1.”

“But who cares, he supported Kasich & Hillary.”

The last episode of the last season of “The Apprentice” that Trump hosted averaged 6.1 million viewers, while an estimated 4.93 million viewers watched the premiere of Schwarzenegger’s season. (RELATED: Tucker Carlson’s New Show Has Epic Ratings Premiere — Beats CNN And MSNBC Combined)
