Serves the limousine lefties right.

Breitbart, one of several news outlets favored by America’s white nationalist extremist fringe, said the comments came in a lengthy interview covering health care, tax cuts, immigration and a variety of other topics.

So a new outlet, and its readers, that treats the MSM with the disdain it so thoroughly deserves gets slandered in this article and JT sees it fit to print as a "news" article? People across the world and not just white people, "extremist" or otherwise, read Breitbart to get a non-establishment perspective on a whole variety of issues.

Bravo, JT, you've done it again!

Does trump need to give his 2 cents on everything?

It takes Trump weeks to respond to antisemitic attacks from his own base and so far his only response to the cold blooded murder of an Indian man mistaken for a Muslim in a hate attack has been do deny his , but less than 12 hours for him to mock Hollywood. Tells you where his priorities are.

Fortunately anti-semitic, islamaphobic, white supremacist, racist paedophiles are non-establishment. The rest of the world gazes in horror and disbelief at the vile garbage in Breitbart.

It's not slander if it's true. It is hands down the source favored by white extremists, is it not? Even Bannon admits it's a platform for the alt-right, a term coined by a far-right white supremacist.

Predictable response. Still, thet did rather set this up for him.

There was something very special missing, and then to end that way was sad.” ****

**Are they talking about the freedom of some that he took away? So yes its about him. He should know that his presence is very upsetting to many.

"Trump doesn’t explain in the interview why he thinks the jokes at his expense led to the unrelated error, and it is unclear if he watched the show."

He probably watched it, and it was terrible. And then he didn't watch it, alternatively. In either case, he relates the error at the end of the show to the digs at him simply because he's a megalomaniac.

That's the problem with using the openings at both ends of the digestive tract to speak with, if you keep quiet at one end, the other does all the talking and thinking.

It's not slander if it's true. It is hands down the source favored by white extremists, is it not?

And convicted felons tend to vote Democratic. Do we call the Dem party the "party favored by felons?" Your logic doesn't hold up. It's always easier to avoid addressing opposing opinions by calling them "racist" but that tactic is becoming old now.

-15 ( +1 / -16 )

It saddens me only that Mr. Trump responds to this ignorance.

-17 ( +1 / -18 )

And convicted felons tend to vote Democratic.

Are you saying they vote Dem exclusively? You would have a point then, but then you would also need proof... There goes your point. And when has the Democratic party ever said "We are a platform for convicted felons" like Bannon did for the alt-right? The right's false equivalency is what's getting old.

Am more and more convinced that DT loves to be hated. Another one of his personality disorders (masochistic narcissism).

Although I vehemently disagree with the political circus the Oscar's have become I equally disagree with the circus-like statements made by President Trump (including this one).

As other's have stated there are times he needs to show some level of restraint and keep is mouth shut.

Excellent comment by Trump and especially because it is true.

-17 ( +1 / -18 )

This morning I was listening to BBC, when surprisingly they reported that even G.W. Bush criticised the way Dumpy is doing things. Even George W. Bush. This Trump guy is a mistake and we are going to pay the biggest price of our lives for it.

“Now, the president has got the last laugh as he hammers Hollywood for its epic fail,” it added.

Not only Trump but his entire team has the mindset of a small child.

Right, because passing envelopes to presenters has everything to do with what is being said on stage...

So because some luvvies said something (true) about Trump he sees it as some sort of cosmic revenge that the wrong film was revealed as Best Film? He doesn't seem to understand that every time he opens his mouth and spews forth his verbal diarrhoea that he's basically feeding those against him with all the comedy fuel they need. Hell, even George W seems to think he's a megalomaniac.

Not really, Breitbart, given his and your obsession with a mistake not at all related to Trump has you both in a tizzy and champing at the bit for ANYTHING you can see as a mistake and try to take credit for. So, actually, we're laughing at Trump again, and Breitbart, too. And when Trump spends his time on the crapper tomorrow morning still tweeting angrily about this instead of what matters, we'll be laughing then, too. Hell, I'm laughing now because I KNOW that's what's going to happen!

Just watched the video. The Layla Land guys were pretty awesome about the mix up.

The worst massive blunder was giving an Oscar to those ham actors, the White Helmet war-mongering bunch of thugs. But what do you expect from Hollywood? Yuck, and that's what you get.

At least it's good for the films - people are talking about them; it's all the talk in town

PricewaterhouseCoopers company, by the way, is a big Republican supporter

Dun-dun-duuuuuuuuun

And now further the conspiracies

BREAKING: Hollywood elitists left stunned by their own stupidity. In other news, Donald J. Trump is still the 45th President of the United States. . . .

-15 ( +0 / -15 )

More like, Hollywood and the Alt-left need to get their **** together. No one is watching the Oscars anymore. No wonder only 32.9!million watched, that's nothing. People could care less about a bunch of clueless rich snobs complementing each other on who is the best actor and who looked great. These people are so out of touch with reality.

BREAKING: Hollywood elitists left stunned by their own stupidity. In other news, Donald J. Trump is still the 45th President of the United States. . . .

That's probably the reason why they couldn't concentrate and made that stupid mistake. Who'd thought that the Über-smart leftists with their 100K college degrees and smarter than the average human could ever make a hilarious but embarrassing blunder like that?

Commenteer - And convicted felons tend to vote Democratic.

Except, of course, most of them are deprived of the vote by Republican fiat, their 'crimes' are usually being poor and Black (or, less commonly, Black, with poor and White coming in last) in a Republican controlled state. On the other hand, unconvicted felons, such as Trump, tend to actually get to vote, and vote, for the most part, Republican, in thanks for the Republican Party doing so much to make it possible for them to rape, steal, commit fraud, and get away with it.

Hollywood can't even run its own Oscars but it thinks it can run America. LOL! :D #MAGA #TRUMP2020

-7 ( +0 / -7 )

Who'd thought that the Über-smart leftists with their 100K college degrees and smarter than the average human could ever make a hilarious but embarrassing blunder like that? you make it sound that all leftists are to blame for the mixup. LOL. Id wage a bet that leftist control and own the far more of the US wealth and companies than the right. Thats what a superior intellect and in many cases a college degree gets you. The rest are just lackeys working for them, or not working since the Chinese can do the same job for less.

At least the mistake was caught and rectified immediately. Lala Land producer was gracious about handing back the trophy, and everyone in the audience, though stunned at first, were good sports about it. Has Trump or his cronies ever apologized for a snafu, let alone being gracious about idiotic rhetoric coming out of their mouths?

3 ( +4 / -1 )

Do you guys ever shut up about Trump? I read lots of people saying "Trump should shut up and mind his own" when he was being globally mocked on TV. A form of bullying, which is unacceptable. All of you PC people are all about freedom and love not hate...yet you are showing children it's okay to mock and put down people.

You should all be ashamed of your childish attitude. He won the election, now sit down, shut up, and let him try to run the country in peace. Maybe he can fix it?

Not all of Hollywood is on the left, though. Most maybe, but you have Arnold S., Clint Eastwood, Scott Baio, etc.

Any "chaos" that happened at the Oscars has no real world effects. The chaos and fear Trump promotes on the other hand.....

What defines the Alt-left? Fake category.

No one is watching the Oscars anymore.

Apparently Trump is.

People could care less

Then why don't they?

How do you know Brian Culling is a leftist? Is the accounting world also full of leftists? Word is that the blunder may have been caused because he was tweeting instead of doing his job.

Somebody else I can think of might learn a lesson from this.

Trump is spot on, again. Winning!

-8 ( +0 / -8 )

yet you are showing children it's okay to mock and put down people. and President Orange has managed to do just that to muslims, mexicans and about anybody else who says something bad about him. Time to sit down shut up and grow a thicker skin, if Trump and his supporters cant handle the abuse then maybe he should stop trying to implementing policies that are derogatory to others

No, not at all. All the negative, racial, divisive, socialist and fascist elements that go with it.

Apparently Trump is.

Maybe the highlights, everyone does, it's the only way to tolerate that Hollywood orgy of looney out of touch snobs bragging to each other who should get a gold brushed statue for making a movie and being judged by how good you look and yell out stupid political messages No one gives a **** about.

How do you know Brian Culling is a leftist? Is the accounting world also full of leftists? Word is that the blunder may have been caused because he was tweeting instead of doing his job.

No, I'm not saying that, but politically, Culling has always been more politically left. The word, oh, please, the word is Obama is seeking a 3rd term. You guys, time for you to put the Cuervo Gold down.

Somebody else I can think of might learn a lesson from this.
