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.

    Hi Rudy.

  3. If it were up to me, Trump and every other obnoxious right-winger would get a large megaphone, 'cause the more woman- and man-on-the-street Americans hear what GOP & Company has to say, the more likely they are to vote for Democrats.

  5. That is why the way TPM portrays Trump is different than the way Chuck Todd and Andrea Mitchell portray Trump. It is the job of the latter two (along with a host of others, of course) to “report” on the GOP as though it is a political party, as opposed to a racist cult.
