Former Governor talks about Trump comments, forgets his own infidelity

Former Governor talks about Trump comments, forgets his own infidelity

I detest this whole sleazy mess with Donald Trump. I can understand those pulling their support and their endorsements. Arnold Schwarzenegger is the latest high-profile personality to come out and rebuke Trump. For the first time, Arnold will not be voting Republican. I understand his move… I really do, but Schwarzenegger should have stayed out of this fight. He’s not exactly a paragon of virtue. He had an affair with his Guatemalan housekeeper and she had a child of his… within a month of his wife, Maria, giving birth to their youngest. He knew about the child for the better part of a decade before telling wifey. A divorce ensued. Glass houses and all that.

And it wasn’t just the housekeeper… Arnold was accused of groping multiple women over a period of time. Six women on his movie sets all came forward against him. There are photos folks… ones that I won’t post here. Yep, I’m disgusted by Trump… but I’m also sickened by what Schwarzenegger did to his wife. Doesn’t anyone have morals, principles and character anymore? Evidently not.

On May 9, 2011, Shriver and Schwarzenegger ended their relationship after 25 years of marriage, with Shriver moving out of the couple’s Brentwood mansion. On May 16, 2011, the Los Angeles Times revealed that Schwarzenegger had fathered a son more than fourteen years earlier with an employee in their household, Mildred Patricia ‘Patty’ Baena. “After leaving the governor’s office I told my wife about this event, which occurred over a decade ago,” Schwarzenegger said in a statement issued to The Times. In the statement, Schwarzenegger did not mention that he had confessed to his wife only after Shriver had confronted him with the information, which she had done after confirming with the housekeeper what she had suspected about the child.

Baena is of Guatemalan origin, she was employed by the family for 20 years and retired in January 2011. The pregnant Baena was working in the home while Shriver was pregnant with the youngest of the couple’s four children. Baena’s son with Schwarzenegger, Joseph, was born on October 2, 1997; Shriver gave birth to Christopher on September 27, 1997. Schwarzenegger says it took seven or eight years before he found out that he had fathered a child with his housekeeper. It wasn’t until the boy “started looking like me, that’s when I kind of got it. I put things together,” the action star and former California governor, told 60 Minutes. Schwarzenegger has taken financial responsibility for the child “from the start and continued to provide support.” KNX 1070 radio reported that in 2010 he bought a new four-bedroom house, with a pool, for Baena and their son in Bakersfield, about 112 miles (180 km) north of Los Angeles. Baena separated from her husband, Rogelio, in 1997, a few months after Joseph’s birth, and filed for divorce in 2008. Baena’s ex-husband says that the child’s birth certificate was falsified and that he plans to sue Schwarzenegger for engaging in conspiracy to falsify a public document, a serious crime in California.

There’s more than enough shame to go around on all this and that includes voters. It’s too late to change horses in this political race. This is what they wanted and this is what they got. But please… spare me the soap box from Arnold Schwarzenegger.
