As expected, like all the other big Hollywood events in the Trump era, the Oscars included some shots at President Donald Trump with director Spike Lee leading the charge by issuing a call for everyone to be on the “right side of history” and reject “hate” in 2020.
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!

Spike Lee was visibly angry when "Green Book" was announced as the winner of best picture at the Oscars, waving his arms in disgust and appearing to try to storm out of the Dolby Theatre before he was stopped at the doors. He returned to his seat when the speeches were over.
