Former California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger has lashed out at President Donald Trump’s rebuke of American intelligence agencies during a news conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

“President Trump, I just saw your press conference with President Putin and it was embarrassing, I mean you stood there like a little wet noodle, like a little fanboy,” Schwarzenegger said in a Facebook video on Monday, unshaven and appearing distraught. “I mean, I was asking myself when are you going to ask him for an autograph or for a selfie or something like that?”

Schwarzenegger, who has repeatedly tangled with Trump, said the president “sold out” the nation as well as its intelligence and justice systems.

“You’re the president of the United States, you shouldn’t do that. What’s the matter with you? I mean, whatever happened to the strong words or to the strength of Ronald Reagan when he stood there at the Berlin Wall, and he said, ‘Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall.’ What happened to all that?” Schwarzenegger said, before sighing heavily.
