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.
