Brad Pitt ripped for dredging up impeachment trial in Oscars speech

Actor Brad Pitt turned a otherwise celebratory occasion into a controversial one by interjecting his opinion on the Trump impeachment trial into his Oscar award speech.

Per PageSix, not everyone appreciated his bringing up politics at the awards show.

Pitt, 56, blasted the US Senate for rejecting Democratic efforts to subpoena Trump’s former national security adviser, John Bolton, to testify during the trial.

“They said I have 45 seconds. Which is 45 seconds more than the Senate gave John Bolton this week,” Pitt said when accepting his best supporting actor award for “Once Upon a Time in … Hollywood.”

“I’m thinking maybe Quentin [Tarantino] does a movie about it. And in the end the adults do the right thing,” he continued.

The digs drew a lot of laughs and applause from the Hollywood crowd, including from Tarantino.

It wasn’t as well received online.

I was a fan of Brad Pitt. Not anymore, after his speech receiving an Oscar. He said “I only have 45 seconds but that’s more time than the Senate gave John Bolton”. Brad we don’t need another Hollywood insider giving us his Democrat opinion. Take your trophy and go home.

$20 down that brad pitt didn’t even know who john bolton was before this week.

What a friggin tool Brad Pitt is!

Per TCO, Brad Pitt answered why he got “political” in his Oscars acceptance speech.

After winning the first Oscar award of the night for “Best supporting actor” Brad Pitt  immediately made it “political” making a snide reference to Trump’s impeachment trial. Pitt said “They told me I only have 45 seconds up here, which is 45 seconds more than the Senate gave John Bolton this week.”


You did have a political reference. What kind of prompted you to go that way?

Brad Pitt:

I was really disappointed with this week. And I think when gamesmanship trumps doing the right thing. It’s a sad day. I don’t think we should let it slide and I’m very serious about that


Trump supporters were not impressed with Pitt’s comments and blasted him on Twitter.

Brad Pitt, “They told me I only have 45 seconds up here, which is 45 seconds more than the Senate gave John Bolton this week.”

Look, TDS and @realDonaldTrump have now made the Left cozy up to John Bolton. Their illness knows no bounds!

If Brad Pitt actually followed the news he would know that John Bolton was only trying to sell a book and he actually bailed.

Not a smart take. Not an accurate take


What’s the first rule of Fight Club?


It’s Brad Pitt taking a jab at the Senate for doing it’s job and ending the Impeachment Dumpster Fire🤷🏼‍♂️

Enjoy your award for pretending to be someone.

Your President has REAL work to do!

Brad Pitt, winner of Best Supporting Actor, and made a crack about John Bolton not testifying before the Senate during the Trump impeachment trial. Apparently, Pitt is unaware that Bolton has REFUSED to testify without a subpoena.

It took less than 10 seconds for Brad Pitt to reveal to the world that he is a moron.
