Trump Apparently Not a Fan of ‘Parasite’ Movie

I also highly doubt that Trump has the attention span to sit through the 4-hour David O. Selznick epic, but anything I say to poke holes at the president's speech can't compare to Neon's Twitter burn of Trump. "He's a little wiseguy".

So it turns out that Donald Trump is not a big fan of Brad Pitt! Pitt said in accepting the award that he got more time to speak, 45 seconds, than former national security adviser John Bolton received at Trump's Senate impeachment trial.

"They told me I only have 45 seconds up here, which is 45 seconds more than the Senate gave John Bolton this week", Pitt said. Let's get "Gone with the Wind" back, please? Following the Oscars, Eric Trump called Pitt a "smug elitist". It was a sign of a changing world, of a rise and respect for diversity that is sorely needed in a country where crowds boo the idea of a Korean film winning best picture.

"I thought it was best foreign film right?" he asked, recalling Parasite which was the first foreign film to win an Academy Award for Best Picture. "Did you see?" asked Trump, prompting a round of boos from the audience.

Trump didn't stop at his hate for the South Korean movie. What the hell was that all about? "We've got enough problems with South Korea, with trade", Trump said during the campaign stop in Colorado Springs. The movie was nominated for six Academy Awards and won four including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Original Screenplay and Best International Feature Film. "Was it good? I don't know!"

Since its release, "Gone with the Wind" has been criticized for its depiction of enslaved Africans Americans as simple, scatterbrained and happy in slavery.

Neon, the film distributor behind "Parasite", swiped back at the president by tweeting that his outrage was "understandable, he can't read". The 1915 movie, which also started trending on Twitter Thursday night, has been described as "the most reprehensibly racist film in Hollywood history". "The victor is... from South Korea", repeated Trump. And of course he loves pro-Confederate "Gone With the Wind.' Very telling", Washington Post columnist Max Boot wrote.
