Trump on Kimmel's jabs at the Oscars: 'It didn't feel like a very glamorous thing'

Los Angeles: Jimmy Kimmel took quite a few jabs at US President Donald Trump at the 2017 Oscars show and so its no surprise that Trump didn't think much of Kimmel's work as an Oscars host.

While Trump did not tweet anything during the awards show itself Sunday evening, the president did let his feelings on the proceedings be known Monday, saying the ceremony was too focused on politics.

"I think they were focused so hard on politics that they didn't get the act together at the end," President Trump said in an interview with Breitbart News conducted in the Oval Office.

"It was a little sad. It took away from the glamour of the Oscars. It didn't feel like a very glamorous evening," the president said. "I've been to the Oscars. There was something very special missing, and then to end that way was sad."

Trump was referring to the mixup that resulted in Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway mistakenly announcing "La La Land" as the best picture winner when the top prize actually went to Barry Jenkins' "Moonlight."

Trump was a popular topic of discussion during the awards, with many presenters and winners referring to his policies and politics. Host Jimmy Kimmel even went on to tweet at Trump during the ceremony, making sure he was OK since they hadn't heard from him.
