It would not genuinely be the Oscars if President Donald Trump didn’t have something to tweet about it, however Jimmy Kimmel was all set with a stylish return.
“Lowest rated Oscars in HISTORY,” Trump composed on Tuesday– which holds true. This year’s Academy Awards telecast was the least-viewed in the program’s history, averaging 26.5 million audiences on ABC. “Problem is, we don’t have Stars anymore – except your President (just kidding, of course)!” Trump included.
Kimmel, who hosted the event and continues to knock the president on Jimmy Kimmel Live, reacted: “Thanks, lowest rated President in HISTORY.”
The Oscars telecast has actually continued to drop in audiences given that 2014, which gathered 437 million audiences at the time.
While the focus of this year’s program was more on the #MeToo, Time’s Up, and Never Again motions sweeping through Hollywood, Kimmel tossed a couple of jabs to the White House.
At one point throughout the opening monologue, he joked that Trump called Get Out the “best first three-quarters of a movie this year.”Related youtube video: (not from post)
