Like a number of conservatives, Donald Trump did not appreciate the outcome of the 87th Academy Awards. Sunday night’s Oscars telecast ended with a big best picture win for “Birdman” and director Alejandro Iñárritu, who beat out “American Sniper” much to the chagrin of Fox News and the entire #tcot universe.
Trump on Monday expressed his own disdain for Iñárritu’s win, using the victory as an opportunity to say xenophobic (and unsurprising) things about immigration on national TV.
Also on Monday February 24th, Donald Trump wrote on his Twitter account that he recently won a lawsuit against somebody in Mexico, and blamed the “corrupt legal system” of that country for not being able to collect.
“It was a great night for Mexico, as usual,” Trump said. “This guy [Iñárritu] kept getting up and up and up. I said, ‘What is he doing? He’s walking away with all the gold.’ Was it that good? I don’t hear that. But it was certainly a big night for them.”
Setting up a series of clips of “lefty” political commentary with the assertion that “American Sniper” was “snubbed” in two categories. The combination of a right-wing commercial film losing the best picture award to a film with a Mexican director resulted in plenty of racist and Islamophobic ugliness on Twitter.
