The perfect response to the ignorant Orange Shitgibbon occupying the Oval Office. Trump offered "Gone With the Wind" as his choice for what constitutes a great film, a movie that featured the idyllic antebellum South and the Civil War. “Can we get, like, Gone with the Wind back, please?” Dog whistle.

The movie studio behind the South Korean film “Parasite” hit back on Thursday after President Trump criticized the foreign-language film for winning best picture at the 2020 Academy Awards.

"Understandable, he can't read," Neon tweeted from its official account with a link to Trump's comments.

“Parasite” made history earlier this month when it became the first non-English film to win the top prize at the Oscars in the award show’s 92-year history.

The class warfare satire, directed by Bong Joon-ho, dominated the night with a total of four wins, including in the directing, international feature and original screenplay categories.

Trump, however, knocked the dark comedy during a campaign rally in Colorado.
