It appears that Donald Trump was spending some of his valuable executive time watching The Oscars last night. Of course, he was critical of award-winning director Spike Lee. Yet, POTUS tweeted out something he may never had admitted before.

Trump criticized Lee for using notes and said the director could not even read them well. Then, the sitting president of these United States claimed that he had “done more for African Americans.” The kicker came at the end of 45’s tweet when he said he had accomplished more “than almost any other pres!” Imagine that:

‘Be nice if Spike Lee could read his notes, or better yet not have to use notes at all, when doing his racist hit on your President, who has done more for African Americans (Criminal Justice Reform, Lowest Unemployment numbers in History, Tax Cuts,etc.) than almost any other Pres!’

The commander-in-chief did not say that he had done more than any president in history. Instead, he took a second or even third place behind President Barack Obama.

Lee won the award for the best adapted screenplay for BlackKklansman. When he gave his acceptance speech, he said make the “moral choice between love versus hate:”

‘We will have love and wisdom when we regain our humanity. It will be a powerful moment. The 2020 presidential election is around the corner. Let’s all mobilize. Let’s all be on the right side of history. Make the moral choice between love versus hate. Let’s do the right thing.’

Then, Lee looked back in history to compliment his ancestors “who built our country.”

Naturally, Trump went after the black man. He did not say a word about the other stars and presenters — not even those he has criticized in the past. These include “Barbra Streisand, Javier Bardem and Maya Rudolph,” according to Deadline Hollywood.
