You Better Believe Donald Trump Had Some Thoughts About the Oscars

Donald Trump, who is the literal president of the United States, had a pretty fiery take about last night’s Best Picture fiasco at the Academy Awards: They only fucked up because they were too focused on protesting him. In an interview with white nationalist site Breitbart, the president took a second from governing the country to expand on what happened:

I think they were focused so hard on politics that they didn’t get the act together at the end. It was a little sad. It took away from the glamour of the Oscars. It didn’t feel like a very glamorous evening. I’ve been to the Oscars. There was something very special missing, and then to end that way was sad.

Trump, of all people, should know the danger of getting distracted by Twitter.
