President Trump fired back at actor Brad Pitt after the actor made his anti-Trump political views known during his Oscar award 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?
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
