Arnold Schwarzenegger: 'I would have run if I was allowed.'

I know Arnold is a Republican, but I respect the hell out of him. Not the least for winning 7 Mr. Olympia titles. My younger brother and I were both bodybuilders in our teens and early twenties and we idolized him. I was never in good enough shape to compete, but my brother did. I think Arnold is the embodiment of The American Dream. He worked his ass off and became the #1 bodybuilder, #1 Hollywood actor, and finally Governor of California. He also married into one of the most aristocratic families in the U.S., the Kennedys.

 

Question: Should a person be allowed to run for president if they were born outside the U.S.? Arnold has been here from at least the early 70s. I would have some reservations voting for him. When he was young he admired powerful people like Hitler. We used to read his interviews in Muscle and Fitness Magazine.

 

 

 

Arnold Schwarzenegger Says He Definitely Would've Run for President This Year if He Was Allowed

This is a dream the 69-year-old action star wishes were a reality, he shares in a new interview with Adweek. The former Governor of California isn't eligible given that he was born in Austria, but says if it wasn't for this setback, he definitely would've entered into the 2016 race.

"If I'd been born in America, I would've run," he tells the magazine. "Because now? This was a very good time to get in the race."

 

As for his own experience as the "Governator" from 2003-2011, he has this to say. "I didn't love politics, but I love policy," he shares.

 

This isn't the first time Schwarzenegger has talked about seriously wanting to run for POTUS. When asked by Jay Leno during his appearance on The Tonight Show all the way back in April 2010 if he would consider making a run for the White House, he replied, "Without any doubt."

In October 2013, he actually lobbied for support to change the law to allow him to run for president in 2016, Page Six reported.

For the record, Schwarzenegger has said he won't be voting for Trump in this year's election, despite being a Republican. Interestingly enough, he is taking over Trump's role on The New Celebrity Apprentice -- NBC's reboot of the show -- which debuts on Jan. 2.

Schwarzenegger talks about his longtime career in Hollywood with Adweek, and why he's still so popular today.

"I realized early on in bodybuilding that you have to be able to sell yourself, your ideas, your position to the public," he explains. "You have to set yourself apart, whether it's policy or movies. How do you make them remember you?"

His work ethic, of course, is also second to none.

"It has to sound appealing to me, it has to be challenging, it has to be something I can get consumed in," he explains about being obsessed with whatever project he's working on at the time. "It's fun to climb the mountain rather than sit at the top."

Aside from his career, Schwarzenegger is also a proud father of five. Earlier this month, he took his 19-year-old son, Joseph Baena, to Oktoberfest in Munich, Germany to celebrate his birthday.

Terrible governor of my home state, who earned the title of "the Gropinator" for his treatment of women (that was worse than Trump's).

 

Arnold is a world-class pig.

That's too bad. I wasn't aware. I haven't followed him in a long time.

How could you not like Arnold? He made some political decisions that I disagree with (they were voted down and never implemented) but other than that, I think he is great.

I live in California, dude is worse than moonbeam

Totally in love with the police state

If I remember correctly he settled with Enron for pennies on the dollar

Nobody out here liked him

They just liked his movies

I swear that's how he got in

Not to mention his love of Nazis

I defer to you guys. Bipartisan disappointment is pretty damning evidence.

Arnold is like the other recent California Presdent Rayguns.

 

Talked a great script, not worth a shit in reality.
