For all the emasculation of Hollywood males, Arnold Schwarzenegger is earning traditional paternal points the old fashioned way: spending quality time with the boy he made with the fat Guatemalan housekeeper.
Schwarzenegger is hardly the prototypical admirable man. An ass in many ways. A horrible actor. And one truly shitty governor. But he got his. And he didn’t abandon his bastard kid. He paid for Joseph Baena and his mom to have a decent upbringing until that kid was through a normal K-12 well outside of Los Angeles. Once he was a grown teen, Schwarzenegger began having his son on more public get-togethers, male bonding bike rides, and Hummer rides.
He just took his kid to Munich for Octoberfest ginormous beers for his nineteenth birthday, with a social media note:
“Happy birthday, Joseph. Great student, great athlete. I’m proud of you and I love you!
Exclusive of the lederhosen and hair plugs, that’s pretty damn cool. The kid seems well adjusted and smiling in every single damn photo with his dad for the past couple of years. Fucking the old house maid while Maria’s out running yet another gala, not so smart. Ever since, pretty stand up guy. I hate being nice.
