What the hell was that all that about? We’ve got enough problems with South Korea, with trade. On top of that, they give them the best movie of the year. Was it good? I don’t know. Let’s get Gone With the Wind back, please? Sunset Boulevard. So many great movies.”

He’s a little wise guy.”

In the end, the adults do the right thing.”Source: Trump Rips ‘Parasite’ Oscars Win and Brad Pitt in Colorado Rally Rant
