At the Oscars, Jimmy Kimmel took a playful jab at former President Donald Trump.

Trump’s Criticism

Before introducing Al Pacino, Kimmel read aloud a critical post from Trump on his social media platform. Trump called Kimmel a “terrible host” and suggested he be replaced with George Stephanopoulos.

Kimmel’s Response

Kimmel asked the audience to guess who posted the message, then quipped, “Thank you, President Trump, for watching. I’m surprised you’re still awake—isn’t it past your jail time?”

Trump’s Legal Troubles

Trump is facing multiple criminal charges related to both his political and business activities. The Supreme Court will decide whether he has immunity from prosecution for acts committed during his presidency.

Other Oscars Highlights

Despite the Trump exchange, there were other notable moments at the Oscars, including:

  • John Mulaney’s joke about “Field of Dreams”
  • Ryan Gosling performing “I’m Just Ken” from “Barbie”
  • John Cena presenting an award in the nude
