Schwarzenegger Pulled ‘I Can’t Hear You’ Trick

In cased you missed it over the weekend, Arnold Schwarzenegger took time out of his schedule to do something rather unremarkable — he gave yet another interview about his tell-all book Total Recall to David Gregory on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”

Blah blah…more on the infidelity, the maid, the kid, the perfect wife, Maria.

Our cousins over at TVNewser pulled out an interesting media aspect of Sunday’s interview — turns out when NBC’s Matt Lauer interviewed Arnold in 2003 he wasn’t prepared when asked about disclosing his tax returns. So he pulled the old “I can’t hear you” trick and Lauer was forced to close the interview and cite technological difficulties.

“You actually heard just fine didn’t you during that moment?” Gregory asked. Arnold replied, jokingly, “I can’t remember.”
