WATCH: Anti-Trumper, Tom Arnold, Gets In Pro-Trumper Dean Cain’s Face Backstage

Written by K. Walker on October 10, 2018

This is what happens when a Twitter spat between celebrities spills over into real life.

Tom Arnold, unhinged Trump/Russian-hooker ‘pee-pee tape’ hunter got nose-to-nose backstage at Larry King’s studio with Dean Cain, the 1990s heartthrob who played Superman on Lois & Clark.

Cain was at the Glendale, California, studio as a guest on Larry King Now, which airs on Ora TV and Hulu, to promote his upcoming anti-abortion film, Gosnell: The Trial of America’s Biggest Serial Killer, while Arnold was there to plug The Hunt for the Trump Tapes With Tom Arnold, which airs on Viceland.

The Princeton graduate and former NFL player turned actor confronted alleged-comedian and Roseanne’s ex-husband regarding a defamatory tweet that Arnold directed at Cain late September.

In the videos, Arnold tells Cain that the ‘racist’ Trump crowd is using him and demands to see the tweet that has upset Cain so much.

Arnold then violates Godwin’s Law and says that the pro-Trump crowd are ‘like Nazis.’

When a bystander aimed a cellphone at the two actors, someone from the Arnold camp told them not to record the argument. The witness shut his phone down then turned it on again in secret, hence there are two videos and some of the middle of the exchange is missing.

“Dean was intense. He looked ready to do something if Arnold came at him,” says a witness.


Arnold says that he wasn’t speaking about Cain directly, it was about the people that are ‘using’ him.

It seems that they work it out and even give each other a bro hug.

But no.

It’s still going on.

Perhaps Arnold was intimidated by Cain in real life. Maybe relying on that social media bravado that afflicts the majority of leftist Twitter isn’t such a good thing.

Nevertheless, he persisted.

Arnold went back into the fray, ratcheting up the rhetoric, and this time, it is decidedly personal.

Interesting since Dean Cain’s father was part Japanese, and though Cain does indeed star in the Gosnell movie, the actor admits that he is pro-choice to a certian point.

And Dean Cain shows himself to be the gentleman willing to acknowledge the successes of his opponent — in this case his acting ability in True Lies.

Aaaaaand here’s Tom Arnold’s take on the back and forth:

Holy hell Superman is a full on white supremacist Trump lover. Holy hell I almost had to knock out Superman. Good lord, has anyone seen Batman? Please tell my children about me….

After being shamed on social media, Arnold decided to defend himself.

“I didn’t back down,” Arnold told THR. “I was giving him a break by not assuming he was stupid about the FRC, which I do liken to Nazis, and now I see he’s one of them.”

Arnold also said he was upset about Cain’s decision to star in Gosnell, which tells the true story of abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell and opens Friday. “It’s a shit-fucking movie,” Arnold said.

“He played this icon, Superman, but he’s an idiot,” Arnold said. “If he wanted to fight, I took my glasses off for him. He’s a fucking pussy. Next time I see him we’ll get it going and his buddy can film it.”

Typical that Tom Arnold wouldn’t to get the story of Kermit Gosnell out there — after all, the serial killer was convicted not just of killing babies by snipping their spinal cords with scissors after they were born and dumping their into the water near his home to be consumed by crabs, but also the involuntary manslaughter of a healthy woman that went into his clinic for an abortion. Heaven forbid you tell the story about an abortion clinic that wasn’t inspected in years and committed absolute atrocities at the hands of a man that didn’t seem to care about his patients and thought it was a good idea to keep the feet of aborted(?) babies in jars. You wouldn’t want to shine a spotlight on how the dirty, smelly clinic was a health hazard for the women that went there.

Way to be pro-woman, Tom.

This lunkhead is suggesting that Dean Cain is a hater?


Their next meeting should be interesting, don’t you think?

Tom might want to wear a cup.
