Trump Weighs In On The Oscars: ‘It Was A Great Night For Mexico, As Usual’

Real estate mogul and conservative reality TV star Donald Trump complained Monday morning that the 2015 Academy Awards ceremony was biased in favor of Mexicans and against conservatives.

“It was a great night for Mexico, as usual,” Trump said during an appearance on the Fox News show “Fox & Friends,” referring to “Birdman” director Alejandro González Iñárritu’s wins for best director, best picture, and best original screenplay. “This guy kept getting up and up and up. I said, you know, ‘What’s he doing? He’s walking away with all the gold!'”

Earlier in the segment, Trump said the ceremony was biased against the right.

“There was a lot of conservative-hatred there. There was no question about that,” Trump said.

“I haven’t seen any conservatives lately get up and start ranting and raving,” he added.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.

Sincerely,
TPM Staff
