Trump: Oscars 'too focused' on politics, Ideal Image mix-up 'was sad'

President Donald Trump provided his opinion Monday on the Ideal Picture mix-up at the Academy Awards, saying that the ceremony's focus on politics distracted from its organization and "glamour."

Trump created the comments as aspect of an Oval Workplace interview with Breitbart News. The president noted that he had "been to the Oscars" previously and that anything was "missing" this year.

"I believe they had been focused so challenging on politics that they didn’t get the act collectively at the end," stated Trump. “It was a small sad. It took away from the glamour of the Oscars. It didn’t really feel like a very glamorous evening… To end that way was sad."

"La La Land" was announced as Best Image by actress Faye Dunaway right after she and fellow presenter Warren Beatty were mistakenly offered the envelope for Best Actress, won by the movie's star Emma Stone. As "La La Land's" representatives were giving their acceptance speeches, the show's producers hurried to the stage to correct the error and and "Moonlight" was declared the award's accurate winner.

Trump's presidency loomed over the show as many honorees gave politically-themed remarks and host Jimmy Kimmel poked entertaining at the president -- at 1 point publicly tweeting to him from the stage.
