Anti-Trump Arnold Give Props to the President for Addressing CA's Homelessness, But His Explanation of the Problem Needs a Total Recall

Arnold Schwarzenegger occupies a peculiar political space.

For years, he talked conservative principles and supported Republican candidates.

Wanna see something amazing? Here ya go:

Then he dashed onto the scene as a revolutionizing conservative California governor. But according to a gaggle of right-wing critics, once he took office, for two terms, he Democrated it up somethin’ fierce.

And in 2016, he made an announcement:

Translation: Not a fan of Trump.

And then there was this, which surely hasn’t helped:

But I give Arnold credit here:

Schwarzenegger’s back with another olive branch. Or, at least, with compliments to the Commander-in-Chief for addressing California’s punishingly immense homeless problem.

At the “Unhoused: Addressing Homelessness in California” event at USC Thursday, Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson appeared compliments of POTUS.

Therefore, the Terminator took to the Twitter to thank the Prez:

As reported by The Daily Wire, Ben said a bipartisan effort needs to be made, and that the White House will call on “every church, synagogue and mosque” to take care of those without homes.

But how’d we get here, where LA’s full-up with the homeless and San Francisco has its very own Poop Map (a must-see here)?

Speaking on Steve Hilton’s The Next Revolution Sunday, Arnold waxed on the origins:

“When it comes down to it, California was going through a period where we had kind of had a no-growth movement. Therefore there was no supply anymore so the demand became bigger and bigger and the prices of homes now went up. No one could afford it except people that made a lot of money so it priced people out of their homes. There are 60,000 homeless in Los Angeles. We have a major problem. It has become a crisis.”

So there are over half a hundred thousand people sleeping outside because rent is high?

And that’s the belief of a guy who moved to California with empty pockets and amassed a net worth of $400 million?

The escalating cost of real estate is certainly a reason people move; but I’ve never heard of it convincing anybody to take a dump on the sidewalk.

So I’m gonna say No; there are other factors involved. Perhaps some of them have nothing to do with leases and mortgages, and more to do with mental health and the policies of California’s leadership.

The first step to solving a problem is diagnosing it; so we’ve got a ways to go.

But at least there’s some progress in the Arnold-Donald rift. I’m on the edge of my seat for that sledding pic.

Don’t make us wait much longer, guys.
