Arnold Schwarzenegger has taken to Twitter to give his advice on what the over 65’s should do during the coronavirus pandemic.

The 72-year-old star of Predator suggests we “ignore the morons,” as he posted a video of himself in his kitchen with two donkeys.

From this position, he gave out helpful advice for the over 65’s, which focused around urging them to stay indoors and avoid restaurants and gymnasiums.

Flanked by two adorable little donkeys either side of him, he started by saying to the camera, “the important thing now is that you stay at home because there’s a curfew now,” he said, “if you’re 65 you’re not allowed out of the house in California, anymore.”

He sat at what looks like his kitchen table, and he’s feeding the donkeys carrots, “mmmm, that’s yummy,” he says to one donkey as it scoffs a carrot.

He then introduces us to Whiskey and Lulu, who he says love carrots. The former Governor then tells his audience, “that’s what we do now” and that “we don’t go out anymore, we don’t go to restaurants.”

He reiterates once again: “No more restaurants, no more restaurants, forget that!” Restaurants and gymnasiums are “out the window,” he stresses.

The Terminator was clearly in good spirits and was making the best of a bad situation. He appeared to be having great fun as he gave the two donkeys a big Arnie cuddle at the end of the video.

He posted the video on Twitter with the following caption: “Stay at home as much as possible. Listen to the experts, ignore the morons (foreheads). We will get through this together.”

There have been 335 confirmed cases in California with six deaths. Nationwide there have been 3,499 confirmed cases and 63 deaths.

It’s good to see Schwarzenegger treating the spread of the virus with due caution.

Tom Hanks announced he and his wife Rita Wilson had contracted the coronavirus last week, with many fans expressing concern over the beloved actors advancing years and Diabetes condition.

However,  if you are quarantining or just self-isolating and you don’t have any donkeys to play with, then Rita Wilson has done us all an excellent service by creating a quarantine playlist.

The playlist features songs related to loneliness and isolation and has been titled ‘Quarantunes.’
