Days After 80-Y.O. Joe Biden Shockingly Froze Mid-Speech, Arnold Schwarzenegger Delivers Harsh Advice: “Start Thinking About Stepping Aside”

Even the ‘Terminator’ cannot stay strong forever.

‘The Austrian Oak’ has had a successful career in all of his professional ventures, including a bodybuilding career, a glamorous Hollywood career, and as the 38th Governor of California. While serving as the Governor of California was something that many of his close ones did not support, he made sure to give his best and serve his nation in the best way possible. However, he admitted recently during an interview that one should realize on his own when the right time to retire is.

Talking about this in a Wall Street Journal WJSTech Live interview, Schwarzenegger said, “It’s very hard to say what is the age limit on anything, especially in politics; I mean, that you can see certain people that all of a sudden freeze in the middle of a sentence.” Continuing further, Schwarzenegger said, “But if he freezes, there’s something going on.”

Arnold continued by pointing out that he was aware that there were some arguments, saying that the leader in the debate (80-year-old Joe Biden) was thinking about a complicated issue, which is why he froze. However, “The Green Governor” doesn’t seem to agree with this. “I don’t buy into it. But I mean, people like that should then start thinking about stepping aside and letting a newer generation step in,” Schwarzenegger pointed out.

76-year-old Arnold Schwarzenegger brought forward a very reasonable case. He insisted that political leaders who are way too old should focus more on their health and wellbeing and give the youth a chance. “I just believe that we should look for the new breed in both parties—for the new breed, for the new generation, a new generation of leaders—rather than squishing them,” Arnold concluded.
