President Trump took a hilarious swipe at the 90th Academy Awards Tuesday morning, pointing out the shows lackluster ratings and claiming the ceremony’s biggest problems was a “lack of stars” except the President himself, of course.
Trump jabbed the A-list event on social media after industry insiders announced that Hollywood’s biggest night reached its lowest audience ever, with ratings dropping to their worst levels on record.
“Lowest rated Oscars in HISTORY. Problem is, we don’t have Stars anymore – except your President (just kidding, of course)!” Trump quipped.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the star-studded event took a nosedive, dropping nearly 20% from last year’s telecast and reaching “an all-time low” of just 26.5 million viewers.
