The Oscars were a night of glamour, memories, and awards given to the actors and actresses who have given us some of the best films of the year. With every racist movement of the Trump campaign, movies are seeming more and more important in order to give us all a small break from the chaos outside the movie theater doors.
Like everything in life, even the Oscars are allowed a mishap here and there, which is exactly what happened when Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway were presenting the award for Best Picture. Instead of handing Beatty the envelope for Best Picture award he was handed a duplicate envelope for Best Female Role. Unfortunately, Faye Dunaway didn’t catch on to Beatty’s obvious confusion and read the card anyways.
But wait, there’s more…Enter Donald Trump.
Trump, in an interview with the right wing extremist publication, Breitbart, said that the mishap was all because of him. Trump stated:
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.
This comment was made even though PrincewaterhouseCoopers, the company that tallys the ballots for the Oscars, put out a statement saying:

I guess if I were the President and I had to watch as America laughed its ass off at my expense I would try to take some credit for something too. Jimmy Kimmel didn’t hold back with jokes like:
Some of you will get to come up here on this stage tonight and give a speech that the president of the United States will tweet about in ALL CAPS during his 5 a.m. bowel movement tomorrow, and I think that’s pretty darn excellent, if you ask me.
Instead he decided to be so big headed as to think the people who run the Oscars thought two seconds about his ridiculousness. Trust us Trump they don’t have to try hard to make you look bad, you provide them plenty of ammo.
