Trump Mocks Oscars Over ‘Parasite’ Win, Slams Brad Pitt During Campaign Rally

President Donald Trump isn’t a fan of the Academy Award-winning film, “Parasite” — or Brad Pitt, for that matter.

Last night at his campaign rally in Colorado Springs, Trump didn’t mince words when he shared his opinion of the 2020 Academy Awards.

With a brief statement about America’s relationship with Korea, he opened the door for his discussion about the South Korean film. He admitted that he wasn’t pleased with the foreign picture winning Best Picture although he hadn’t viewed the film.

“By the way, how bad were the Academy Awards this year, did you see it?” Trump said as the crowd booed. “And the winner is a movie from South Korea — what the hell was that all about?

“We got enough problems with South Korea, with trade. On top of it, they give them the best movie of the year? Was it good? I don’t know.”

After mocking the foreign film, Trump moved on to famed actor who won Best Supporting Actor for his role in “Once Upon a Time In Hollywood.”

“And then you have Brad Pitt, I was never a big fan of his,” Trump said. “He got up, said a little wise guy thing. He’s a little wise guy.”

During Pitt’s acceptance speech, he cracked a joke referencing former National Security Adviser John Bolton who didn’t testify during Trump’s impeachment trial.

“They told me I only have 45 seconds up here, which is 45 seconds more than the Senate gave John Bolton this week,” Pitt said in his speech. “I’m thinking maybe (director) Quentin (Tarantino) does a movie about it. In the end, the adults do the right thing.”

After the award ceremony, Pitt offered an explanation for the joke.

“I was really disappointed with this week, and I think when gamesmanship trumps doing the right thing, it’s a sad day, and I don’t think we should let it slide,” he said. “And I’m very serious about that.”

Although Pitt has yet to respond to Trump’s recent remarks, the film studio for “Parasite,” Neon, wasted no time tweeting a response, “Understandable, he can’t read.”

  1. As further proof that she’s not smart and completely TDS, Phil loves to assert that those who do not agree with her CANNOT read. I wonder if she’ll say that farmers can’t read?

    Yet she posts it here FOR READING. That’s some world-class mental impairment ON HER PART.

    Is her posting here her version of shouting at the sky? If you post and no one can read it, did it really happen? Just f’ing stupid and another reason to ignore her.

    Trolling done. She’s too easy (no, I refuse to speculate on her other habits).

    1. Your reading comprehension is in need of some work. Those afflicted with Adult Attention Deficit Disorder CAN READ—they do not have the attention span for posts longer than 2 compound sentences. THAT is evident in the frequency of comments on the length of my posts. I initially perceived they did not want as many examples as evidence I use to draw a conclusion. Some complainers, i.e. YOU, just are not ready to see how history will judge your enabling of the most corrupt, unprepared, and divisive man to ever hold the office. So, that is your cue to post how divisive it was for you to have a Black man occupy the Oval Office for 8 years.

    2. LOL, I live in your head rent free and you forgot Joe and I are part owners of the Softa family farm??? My maternal great-aunt and uncle owned and operated a dairy farm. I assure you I know farmers can read. So much for that speculation. One day you will get one right, BUT not to date.

  2. “the film studio for “Parasite,” Neon, wasted no time tweeting a response, “Understandable, he can’t read.”

    Umm, Neon fails to understand that “Parasite” won as a film, not as a book. They’ve embarrassed themselves.

        1. Grasping the basics would be knowing the actors are speaking Korean, Screw. The overwhelming majority of Americans DO NOT understand Korean, so Trump would not be alone in needing to read the subtitled. I disagree with NEON that Trump “can’t” read—He chooses NOT to read for reasons of attention deficit, simple laziness, or some bizarre notion that reading is elitist. Who knows, he has not explained it?
          Parasite is not a movie for those who prefer to NOT THINK. The movie will have you thinking and reflection for weeks after viewing. Yes, it takes place in South Korea, but is applicable globally.

  3. The Academy Awards where a bunch of Hollywood elite get together to congratulate themselves AND award movies nobody watches. Did box-office winners (which fund Hollywood) like the Avengers or Star Wars franchises get a single award?

    Bonus points to any film which aligns with their political agenda, like “Parasite” and it’s story of “have nots” taking over the lives of those who “have”.

    1. I forgot to mention the John Wick series which WILL become someday become classics.

      Funny how anti-gun Hollywood is eating out on that franchise.

      1. That is how capitalism works. They make products to get even the “Hollywood haters” to hand over their money to Hollywood. My mother repeatedly says, “If everyone liked the same thing, it would be an awfully dull world.” I watched the first John Wick movie and it wasn’t bad. They sucked you in with the death of his wife, then the killing of the dog she had sent to him—The 3rd one was simply killing from beginning to end without any substance. My great-nephew enjoyed all 3, but he is 15 yrs old.

  4. The president needs to learn to ignore these trivial things, just like I usually do with Phil and the Genital.

  5. You can watch the lead that their Dear Leader (who admitted that he didn’t watch the movie) has over the audience (who the majority of whom have also not seen the movie). You could see this in their reactions.

    This movie was tailormade just for them because it is about people just like them.

    1. Parasite evokes thoughts and reflection both in the theater and for days later. Screw indicated what movies the Trumpers prefer—movies based on comic book characters.

  6. Why does the President even waist his time responding to anything Hollywood does. These morons have only one talent and that is pretending to be something or someone that they could never measure up to in reality. So I ask again why does the President or us for that matter even waste our time responding or even recognizing what these people are gibbering about. For that matter I have to ask myself why I have just wasted my time writing this comment.

    1. The opinions of entertainers, many of whom are undeducated (thanks Ricky Gervais) will appeal to those like them.

      Funny how Bloomers did not comment on the “grey matter” of entertainers, including pro athletes.

    2. “Why does the President even waist [sic] his time responding to anything Hollywood does[?]” William

      So you really don’t know, right? You admit that he confuses even you!

      Let me help you out. It’s all for his traveling circus act at his “rallies”, to entertain his cult members. He doesn’t have any policies worth promoting or explaining, so talk about dishwashers or movie awards. His “rallies” are his equivalent to the Roman gladiator battles, to keep the plebes entertained, and he always gets to play the lead part for a few hours.

      In this particular case, dealing with Hollywood, movies, the Oscars, etc., he DESPERATELY wants to be among them, to be recognized by them, to include him. Why do you think that he has to be included in any shooting done on his propeties? It certainly isn’t because he is a superior businessman, that’s for sure. It’s because his ego must be in the spotlight and his “rallies” are tailor made for that. Why do you think he kept them going after his inauguration? He is so transparent that you can’t even understand your own Dear Leader.
