President Donald Trump revealed just how petty he is today during an interview with fascist hate-rag Breitbart, in which he took credit for the snafu at the Oscars last night.
You surely have heard by now how the film La La Land was wrongly announced the winner of Best Picture, a la Steve Harvey, instead of the real winner, Moonlight.
Trump spoke on the matter during the interview, saying that:
“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.”
He is of course referring to the ACLU buttons that adorned the gowns of stars and the steady stream of anti-Trump jabs taken by host Jimmy Kimmel.
It was a little victory lap for Trump, who has been very hurt by the celebrity community’s refusal to embrace him and shower him with the limelight that he desires so keenly.
In another interview set to air on Fox & Friends, Trump responded to Kimmel’s quip about how “the Oscars used to be racist” (referring to the #OscarsSoWhite social media shame campaign about the lack of diversity in Hollywood) by saying that Kimmel had “played the race card.”
“Look, it just seems like the other side, whenever they’re losing badly, they always pull out the race card. I’ve watched it for years. I watched it against Ronald Reagan, I’ve watched it against so many other people. And they always like pulling out the race card. In fact I did much better than many other… Republicans in the last election. I did much better with Hispanics, I did much better with African Americans.”
Oddly enough, it’s true that he did better with minorities than Mitt Romney did. But that’s not saying much.
It really goes to show that there’s nothing Trump won’t take credit for.
