Trump mocks Arnold Schwarzenegger's TV ratings; Arnold suggests they swap jobs

A normal morning in Trump's America: the President of the United States turns the National Prayer Breakfast into a platform for one of his inane grudges against another celebrity, then gets owned by that celebrity on Twitter.

“Hey Donald, I have a great idea: Why don’t we switch jobs?” Schwarzenegger suggested in a video posted to Twitter. “You take over TV because you’re such an expert in ratings, and I take over your job, so then people can finally sleep comfortably again.”

Schwarzenegger’s message was in response to Trump saying that when he ran for president “they hired a big, big movie star” to take his place on “The Apprentice.”

Here's Trump's remark:

Here's Arnie's response:

Kitten Academy livestream

Welcome to Kitten Academy, hosts of a livestream featuring "kittens learning to cat".

"If there is nothing going on, you can rewind the stream up to 4 hours to see action," the description promises. But the kittens are out in full force this morning.

Brief FAQ: - We are kitten fosters, trying to help rescued cats get adopted by loving homes. - We're in Illinois, USA. - Yes, it's really live 24/7... forever. - We turn off the lights at night, but we have good night-vision set up. For the cats, it seems dark. - We don't get paid for this -- we pay for this. - This stream began on April 20th, 2016. YouTube's time is incorrect. - ADOPTION: Kittens may be adopted through Animal Outreach Society of McHenry

There is a "cheat sheet" to help ID specific kittens. GIFs and other kittenalia are collected at @kitten_academy. Here's a nice video of the kittens sleeping:
