On Thursday, former California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger came out in favor of Gov. Gavin Newsom's order requiring masks in public — and said anyone trying to politicize the issue "is an absolute moron who can't read."

Schwarzenegger, an actor and Republican who served two terms, has been highly critical of President Donald Trump.
