President Donald Trump accused director Spike Lee of using his Oscars acceptance speech to make a “racist hit” against the President Sunday night.
Be nice if Spike Lee could read his notes, or better yet not have to use notes at all, when doing his racist hit on your President, who has done more for African Americans (Criminal Justice Reform, Lowest Unemployment numbers in History, Tax Cuts,etc.) than almost any other Pres!

Lee, who along with three others won the best adapted screenplay Oscar for “BlacKkKlansman,” traced his family’s origins to the first slaves brought to America from Africa in his speech and called on the audience to “mobilize” for 2020 to “regain our humanity.”
“Let’s all be on the right side of history,” he said “Make the moral choice between love versus hate. Let’s do the right thing! You know I had to get that in there.”
He did not mention Trump by name.
