Just minutes into the awards show, Jimmy Kimmel attacks President Trump with, “I want to say thank you to President Trump. Remember last year when it seemed like the Oscars were racist? That’s gone, thanks to him,”
According to Hollywoodreporter, it took only a few minutes after the 89th Academy Awards began for the Trump-bashing to start.
“I want to say thank you to President Trump. Remember last year when it seemed like the Oscars were racist? That’s gone, thanks to him,” said host Jimmy Kimmel.
A political climate for the evening was expected as numerous celebrities have used awards shows this season to express their concerns and criticisms with the Trump administration.
Trump is allegedly not going to pay attention to the Oscars as he will be attending the Governors’ Ball, White House press secretary Seas Spicer said previously. In years past, Trump has hate-watched the show and tweeted about it.
Just after the first award was handed out, Kimmel pretended to kick out reporters from the L.A. Times, CNN and New York Times, as a joke on those outlets being locked out from a press briefing last week.
Now this is why the majority of Republicans and Trump supporters have made it clear through social media that they will not be watching the show, as they expected it to be nothing more than Trump bashing, with the majority of them using the group hashtag #NoOscarsForMe.
