Trump Slams Kimmel And ‘Woke’ Oscars

On Sunday evening, President Donald Trump delivered a scathing critique of Jimmy Kimmel’s performance as the host of the 96th Academy Awards. Trump’s remarks emerged through a series of posts on Truth Social, where he didn’t mince words about Kimmel’s stint as the Oscars host.

Trump called out Kimmel, labeling him as “washed up” and challenging the quality of his opening act. According to Trump, Kimmel’s performance was emblematic of “a less than average person trying too hard to be something which he is not, and never can be.” It’s a bold statement that echoes the feelings of many Americans who yearn for an era of entertainment that resonates with the heart of America, rather than pandering to elite preferences.

The 45th president suggested a change in hosts could rejuvenate the event. “Get rid of Kimmel,” he proposed, hinting at a replacement by another ABC personality, albeit with a tongue-in-cheek nickname, “George Slopanopoulos.”

The Oscars, once a celebration of cinematic achievement, have devolved into a disconnected spectacle in Trump’s view and that of many others. In his Truth Social post, he wrote: “Also a really bad politically correct show tonight, and for years – Disjointed, boring, and very unfair. Why don’t they just give the Oscars to those that deserve them. Maybe that way their audience and TV ratings will come back from the depths.”

In a sad attempt to deflect criticism that only demonstrates how obsessed the leftist media is with President Trump, Kimmel responded to the critique live from the Oscars stage, showcasing the president’s comments to a room full of Hollywood elites. Kimmel’s attempt to brush off the criticism with a joke about Trump’s legal troubles was met with applause from the audience. Still, for many Americans, this response only underscored the disconnect between Hollywood and the broader public. It indicates a culture within the entertainment industry that many feel is quick to dismiss and ridicule differing opinions, especially those that challenge the status quo.

Furthermore, Trump’s past interactions with Kimmel and the media add depth to this feud. Reports of Trump’s previous directives to his staff regarding Kimmel’s jokes at his expense make it clear this is more than a one-off exchange — it’s a continuing dialogue between two figures who represent vastly different segments of American culture.

This latest episode in the Trump-Kimmel saga underscores a division not just between two individuals but between two Americas: one that seeks to uphold traditional values and entertainment standards and another that pushes for a more progressive, often politicized agenda. Trump’s comments reflect a longing for an Oscars ceremony that honors cinematic excellence without veering into political commentary. This sentiment resonates with many viewers who feel alienated by the current trends in Hollywood.
