Schwarzenegger: Herpes Has a Higher Approval Rating Than Congress

“Herpes and colonoscopies are more popular than Congress,” Schwarzenegger joked outside the Supreme Court.

Former California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger joked that the sexually-transmitted disease herpes has a higher approval rating among the American people than Congress, during a rally outside the Supreme Court that protested gerrymandering.

“I’m looking at the building, I’m talking about Congress now, that have an approval rating of 16 percent. Herpes and colonoscopies are more popular than Congress,” Schwarzenegger joked.

The Supreme Court is in the process of hearing the oral argument for Gill v. Whitford, a case that deals with the question of gerrymandering.

“But for some miracle reason, 98 percent of them get reelected. The reason is because it’s a fixed system,” Schwarzenegger told the crowd gathered outside the Supreme Court. “It’s a fixed system, that’s what gerrymandering is all about. This is why I say that the only one who can fix it is the Supreme Court.”
