As many have reported, the Oscars did not take long to go political. Perhaps the most political moment of the night was when Spike Lee took the stage to accept his Oscar. In response, President Trump blasts Spike Lee for his “racist” Oscar acceptance speech.

During Lee’s acceptance speech he talked about slavery. He then transitioned into targeting President Trump.

“The 2020 presidential election is around the corner,” Lee said. “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.”

President Trump took to Twitter to put Spike Lee on blast for messing up his pre-written speech several times and ignoring all of the progress the current administration has done with African-Americans.

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!

Although the award was shared with three screenwriters, Lee was the only one to get the mic when they took the stage.

The classless director was also angry when “Green Book” won the best picture award.
