Not long after Donald Trump blasted the Oscars for being biased against conservatives, the reality TV took to Instagram Monday to offer his services as a future host.

“The Academy Awards last night were absolutely terrible — boring, ugly sets, everything,” Trump said in a video posted to the photo-sharing site. “I have the perfect host for next year: me.”

During an appearance on the Fox News show “Fox & Friends” earlier Monday, Trump complained about what he called “conservative-hatred” on display at the ceremonies.

He also snarked about “Birdman” director Alejandro González Iñárritu’s multiple wins, saying: “It was a great night for Mexico, as usual.”

  2. They should totally take him up on this.

  3. Let me know when Donald Trump has a suggestion for improving things that doesn’t involve paying more attention to Donald Trump.
