President Donald Trump has never shied from speaking his mind, even if Hollywood finds his comments offensive. Frankly, Hollywood has always taken a dim view towards Donald Trump being elected as President and spoken long and loud about his politics not being the politics of America. Most of Hollywood was vying for a Hillary Clinton win and was sorely disappointed when it turned out as a loss. So to wear the shoe on the other foot, President Trump also takes his own jabs at Hollywood and The Academy...

He said he got 45 seconds to talk, more than what John Bolton got at the Senate. So Donald Trump took a crack at him as well, calling Pitt a little wise-guy, who made little wise-guy statements on stage. We doubt there is anything little about Brad Pitt, right?

Soon After, Trump Got Trolled

If you troll something, they will troll you right back, and that's exactly the knee-jerk reaction Donald Trump got when the distributor of Parasite mocked him on Twitter. The Twitter account @neonrated tweeted "Understandable, he can't read", referring to the fact that Parasite was subtitled in English as part of its international release. Plenty of other people also took to social media to troll Trump, saying that he was dumbing down America, or thought too highly of himself as a comedian. Not that it ruffled any hair...
