In another example of how when it comes to COVID, liberals don’t practice what they preach, a bare-faced Arnold Schwarzenegger was busted after he trashed Americans who are balking over mask mandates, shaming them as “schmucks” and scoffing at their freedom.
The former California governor was outed as just another massive hypocrite when he leisurely strolled directly into a gaggle of reporters while exiting from a Beverly Hills hair salon and joking with two friends, neither of whom were masked while chomping on a massive stogie on the way to getting into his custom-built Hummer.
Schwarzenegger, who starred in several of Hollywood’s biggest box office hits in the 1980s including “Predator” and “The Terminator” drew criticism earlier this week when he appeared in an interview with disgraced former National Security Council official and impeachment “witness’ Alexander Vindman who is hawking a new book on his experiences in the Trump administration.
“You have the freedom to wear no mask,” Schwarzenegger said. “But you know something? You’re a schmuck for not wearing a mask.”
Well, it takes one to know one.

The Austrian-born celebrity who, during his trip to the salon also sported a cowboy hat and aviator sunglasses, appeared to be unconcerned about the raging delta variant despite hospitals in California filling up with those who have been infected.
By wearing a mask, Schwarzenegger could have set an example he is willing to make the sacrifices that he is demanding of others.
In addition to his chat with Vindman where he remarked “screw your freedom” to Americans who are unwilling to mask up, the 74-year old Republican also penned an editorial for The Atlantic, a publication that is hemorrhaging money but serves as an integral component of the establishment elite’s media apparatus.

In his piece Schwarzenegger wrote; “I’ll admit, calling people schmucks and saying ‘Screw your freedom’ was a little much, even if I stand by the sentiment. But there is nothing that I’m more passionate about than keeping America great, and it’s the only subject that can make me lose my temper.”
He added; “I knew I’d be called a RINO, but that doesn’t bother me. Honestly, rhinos are beautiful, powerful animals, so I take that as a compliment. I anticipated being called a Nazi and a Communist. But I’ve got thick skin stretched over my metal endoskeleton, so I knew I could take it.”
Schwarzenegger also invoked World War II as is often done by today’s liberals on everything from “concentration” camps at the border to the Green New Deal, in this case, such comparisons are being used as justification for stomping on the precious freedoms that the members of “greatest generation” fought for and in many cases, died for.
Not that any more proof is needed that hypocrisy is the coin of the realm when it comes to liberals but Arnold just served it up.
