Donald Trump Jr. tweeted a prediction Sunday for Oscar night that he thought was very clever. It had to do with politics.
He remarked that he believed the 91st Academy Awards would include celebrity criticism of his dad, attacks on walls (“immoral, except outside our houses”) and praise for socialism.
Oh, wait, there are movie awards, too. He skipped that part.
I’ll save you guys the trouble & summarize the #Oscars so you don’t have to watch.
Trump: bad, despite booming economy & lowest black/Hispanic unemployment ever.
Walls: Immoral, except outside our houses.
Socialism: Pay no attention to mayhem in Venezuela, let’s give it a try

Maybe he’s trying to distract himself. A former U.S. attorney said in an MSNBC interview Saturday that a report about special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation may be held up by a continuing probe into whether Trump Jr. lied in congressional testimony.
Twitter lapped up his Oscar tweet.
Thanks, I wasn’t going to watch it, but I might now you’ve told me how good it’s going to be.

Pretty simple to me – I plan to watch, because I love movies. I don’t care what you think, about . . . anything.

Walls: Mexico isn’t paying for it

How do you think Black Klansman will do? I really thought that was a well produced, directed and acted movie. It’s so sad how applicable it is in today’s world, and I thought it was spot on how they showed scenes from Charlottesville at the end to show today’s relevance.

Isn’t this an awards show for movies?
