Of all the politicians and celebrities disturbed by President Trump’s Monday summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin — and there were a lot — Arnold Schwarzenegger might have been the most upset.

Schwarzenegger, who served as the Republican governor of California from 2003 to 2011, shared his outrage on Twitter. And he gave the president — whom he said acted like a “little fanboy” around Putin — quite the dressing down.

“President Trump, I just saw your press conference with President Putin, and it was embarrassing,” Schwarzenegger said in the clip. “I mean, you stood there like a little wet noodle, like a little fanboy. I mean, I was asking myself when are you going to ask him for an autograph or for a selfie or something like that. I mean, you literally sold out with this press conference our intelligence community, our justice system, and, worst of all, our country. 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? I mean, he stood there at the Berlin Wall and he said, ‘Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall.’ What happened to all that?”

Schwarzenegger has made it clear in the past that he’s not a fan of Trump. In March, the Terminator star told Deadline that he was glad Trump had only made one trip to his home state. “I don’t think that he’s been good for California,” Schwarzenegger said of Trump. “I don’t think he cares about California and I think California doesn’t care about him.”

He mocked Trump’s claim that he was going to “rescue the coal industry,” by asking whether he would next bring back Blockbuster stores and floppy discs.

Interestingly, Schwarzenegger hosted an iteration of Trump’s reality show The Apprentice in 2017. After the season ended, he said that he would not do another season because people wouldn’t watch due to the show’s association with the president. That didn’t go over well with Trump, who continued to be credited as an executive producer.

Although Schwarzenegger was pretty infuriated about Trump’s appearance alongside Putin, there were plenty of other angry reactions from Hollywood:
