President Trump Oscars Envelope Mistake

Trump Breaks Oscars Silence, Blames 'Politics' for 'Sad' Best Picture Mix-Up

President Trump may not have tweeted during Sunday’s Oscars broadcast, but don’t worry: He definitely has some thoughts on that historic Best Picture blunder.

In fact, Trump actually seems to have taken credit for the infamous mix-up that led to La La Land being mistakenly named Best Picture over the rightful winner Moonlight. In an exclusive interview with Breitbart News, Trump blamed the error on Hollywood’s obsession with… well, him: “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,” Trump continued. “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.”

Several presenters and winners, including absent Iranian director Asghar Farhadi, spoke out against Trump’s policies, and host Jimmy Kimmel took a few jabs at Trump in his monologue, even tweeting at the president midway through the show. Trump didn’t take the bait, but his son, Donald Trump Jr., did point out an error in the show’s “In Memoriam” montage, saying it shows that “Hollywood doesn’t really care about the little people behind the scenes”:

Comments are monitored, so don’t go off topic, don’t frakkin’ curse and don’t bore us with how much your coworker’s sister-in-law makes per hour. Talk smart about TV!

    god dude SHUT UP

    • Angela says:

      +1 Doesn’t he have significantly more important things he should be concerning himself with and talking about instead?

  4. Mel says:

    What a #^%$ moron.

  5. Nikki says:

    He’s a dumba$$

  6. drb999 says:

    Someone wrestle the orange moron to the ground and take away his damn phone. All he does is hold rallies to feed his ego and he tweets garbage like this. Jerk.

  7. pAloma says:

    Someone really needs to say to Warren Beatty, “If you see something, say something.”

    That would have avoided the whole mess.

  8. Chuck says:

    This was one of the least political Oscars I’ve ever seen.

  9. LynnS says:

    Is he just completely incapable of EVER tweeting anything positive about anything else other than something that promotes himself?!

    • Temperance says:

      No. It’s part of his comittable mental illness: he’s a sociopath in the megalomania/narcissist group. He literally is mentally incapable of normal human functionality.

    • wgsecretary says:

      Yes. I think it’s physically impossible for him to say something positive about anyone. He’s either being rude or making it all about himself. That’s it. That’s all he can do!

  10. Tyre says:

    Heehee, he knows how to say exactly the right thing to drive liberals nuts. What a cool response after such disrespect from that community

    • Wordsmith says:

      Right, because trolling the opposition is mature, presidential behavior.

    • Scribe says:

      Tyre you are a moron.

    • Temperance says:

      Yes, all sane people are extremely bothered by the illegitimate leader of their country illustrating that he’s completely insane. It’s even more troubling that you don’t see that.

      • Tyre says:

        Temperance, Temperance. If you go around calling the legally elected leader of your country illegitimate people might start wondering about your own sanity. Take a deep breathe, the sky isn’t falling no matter what you’ve been told.

    • maggie says:

      Yes, because a 70-year-old man, who is one of the most powerful people on earth, is “cool” when he wastes his time tweeting like a tween mean girl.

  11. Eric says:

    Interesting that Donald Trump Jr. linked to a New York Times status to back up his point. I thought they only published fake news.

  12. Bluegal says:

    Does TVLine have to report everything that tangerine tyrant says?!

    • Marie58 says:

      TVLine seems to be obsessed with Donald Trump. They rarely mentioned Obama during his 8 years in office, even though there was plenty to say. TVLine used to be all about TV shows. Now it’s about TV shows and everything Trump tweets, says, doesn’t say, does, doesn’t do, plus everything someone else says about him. Wish it would just go back to TV shows, interviews, reviews, etc.

      • Ryan says:

        Simple explanation: Obama wasn’t a tv personality. Trump was a reality star before he decided to enter politics be still often behaves as if his job is to entertain people (see his interview announcements ending in “Enjoy!”)

      • Temperance says:

        Considering we have a deeply insane madman in political office impacting all areas of American life in a deeply terrible way, it’s news. Stop whining, snowflake.

    • TV Gord says:

      He was commenting on a TV show, so it’s TV news. Obama didn’t get as much coverage here, because he had better things to do.

    • Temperance says:

      Um, in case it isn’t obvious, TVLine doesn’t mention a millionth of what Trump says. Only when his insanity stains an entertainment issue…

  13. Temperance says:

    Nice illustration of Trumps severe mentall illness and virtually absent connection with reality.

  14. jimmy says:

    I am so embarrassed for him at this point.

  15. lrdslvrhnd says:

    People don’t want to hear politicians talk about movies. He should shut up about the Oscars and just focus on what people pay him for.

  16. Raven says:

    Yes, living personification of the song “Your So Vain” ..you made the stressed out and mix up the envelopes….wow having the entire universe turn around by your every move must get so borning…ass

  17. Lou says:

    Why even report this garbage? It’s only giving him attention and that’s all that he ever really wants. Please stop feeding the gross little monster after midnight.

  18. Olivia says:

    I don’t know what is sadder: what this moron says, or that TVLine resorts to linking to Breitbart.

  19. Kim R says:

    What a dumb bunny.

  20. Sara says:

    Ok, this is just straight up pathetic of him. He’s really grasping at straws. It was good ol’ fashioned human error. Get a freaking life!!

  21. Rumple says:

    Gee, it’s almost like the guys handing out the envelopes was so busy tweeting he wasn’t paying attention to his actual job…..

  22. Mary says:

    Seriously, the world in going to h..l in a hen basket and he find time to tweet about such Inconsequential matters. All this does is prove how unstable he is.
