American Factory, the very first film backed by Barack and Michele Obama’s new production company, took home the Best Documentary Award on Sunday night and Trump haters were quick to rub their triumph in the US president’s face.

Barack Obama’s production company just won an #Oscar for Best Documentary.
Obama just got the highest honor in the only community Trump ever wanted recognition in.

Congrats to Julia and Steven, the filmmakers behind American Factory, for telling such a complex, moving story about the very human consequences of wrenching economic change. Glad to see two talented and downright good people take home the Oscar for Higher Ground’s first release. https://t.co/W4AZ68iWoY
