If you thought Oscars was not entertaining enough, then well... looks like the party is still not over yet. Donald Trump who is not overly fond of Oscars anyway ever since he first attended it with wife Melanie in 2012, again naturally took to Twitter to talk about the same.
He wrote, “Lowest rated Oscars in HISTORY. Problem is, we don’t have Stars anymore - except your President (just kidding, of course)!”
Just like "overrated" Meryl Streep, we suppose. Right, Donald?
Jimmy Kimmel who hosted the award show for the second time in a row this year made sure to hold up the mirror to the same. He snapped back saying, “Thanks, lowest rated President in HISTORY"
And that's not all. Kimmel addressed the whole spat on his show slamming the president once again as in his monologue.
He started by talking about waking up in the morning and receiving a text that said to check Trump's Twitter. "As if I don't already do that every morning," Kimmel joked.
Later in the monologue, Kimmel joked how his reply got more likes than Trump. "I know that's the thing that will get under his orange skin," Kimmel quipped.
And if you thought those shades were enough, have a look at this when Kimmel referred to the alleged "hush agreement" Trump has with adult film actress Stormy Daniels who reportedly revealed to have had an extramarital affair with Trump in 2006. Kimmel said, “Trump always has a problem with the Academy Awards, which is surprising because I really think he would love the best picture winner, ‘The Shape of Water.’ The movie, if you haven’t seen it, it’s about a monster who has sex with a woman who can’t talk about it. Basically, it’s like his life story. Right?”
We see what you did there, Jimmy.
Kimmel also discussed a tweet by Donald Trump Jr., who embedded a tweet from someone who asked who didn't watch the Academy Awards. Trump Jr. responded with a raised-hand emoji. "If you look closely you know that's an authentic trump hand because it's gold and tiny," Kimmel said throwing a bone at DJTJ too.
With 26.5 million viewers this year, Oscars ratings dropped nearly 20 percent in 2018 from what they were in 2017 and hit an all-time low. But the dwindling ratings wasn't on Kimmel but rather the lack of mainstream fare nominated for awards and the lack of drama since all of the night’s big winners were foregone conclusions.
