With all the things the leader of the free world should be concerned with—a rising national debt, paying for that wall, climate change and another sexual misconduct lawsuit—y’all President would rather be laser focused on folks who don’t like him and award shows.
“The 2020 presidential election is around the corner. Let’s all mobilize,” the BlackKKlansman director said. “Let’s all be in the right side of history. Make the moral choice between love versus hate.”
Adding, “Let’s do the right thing!”
“Be nice if Spike Lee could read his notes, or better yet not have to use notes at all, when doing his racist hit on your President, who has done more for African Americans (Criminal Justice Reform, Lowest Unemployment numbers in History, Tax Cuts,etc.) than almost any other Pres!
Just to be clear: Spike never mentioned Trump’s name and in no way has Trump ever done anything intentionally to help us as a community. Ever. That, and how is a speech asking people to choose love over hate “racist?”
Make is make sense y’all.
Folks were not here for the President’s immature and factually incorrect claims and took to Twitter to let him know.

The President’s attack on Oscar winner #SpikeLee is despicable. We should not become numb to spectacle and menace of the leader of our country making public attacks on private citizens, especially when based on deliberately false accusations & racism.— Sherrilyn Ifill (@Sifill_LDF) February 25, 2019
Racism is...— a. rye (@angela_rye) February 25, 2019
-calling Mexicans drug dealers and rapists
-calling Black people thugs
-staying silent on the rise in hate crimes
-encouraging white supremacy
You know what would be nice? Electing a NEW President in 2020 who doesn’t have to cheat to “win”. Congrats to Spike Lee. https://t.co/WDoF4UgKTm
Trump goes straight for Spike Lee’s intelligence. Similar to his low IQ Maxine attack or his insults of LeBron James and Don Lemon.— Ahmed Baba (@AhmedBaba_) February 25, 2019
It’s always something to hear a man who has the intellectual curiosity of a boulder insult black people’s intelligence.https://t.co/4hfDR3WTUV
Be Nice if the President would focus more on governing and less on crying about award shows!— Ryan Hill (@RyanHillMI) February 25, 2019
Spike Lee didn't mention Trump. This is what he said: "Let’s all be on the right side of history. Make the moral choice between love versus hate. Let’s do the right thing!"— Aaron Rupar (@atrupar) February 25, 2019
It's notable that Trump took an endorsement of "love" and doing "the right thing" as an attack on him! https://t.co/ZDkkk3XdpO

This wasn’t a racist hit. It was a moral plea.
Spike Lee said to "choose love over hate." Fascinating that you feel attacked by that.— (Masked) Lisa Harris (@lisakay1215) February 25, 2019
1. You read from a Teleprompter all the time, and you sound like a 1st grader reading a book report.— BrooklynDad_Defiant! (@mmpadellan) February 25, 2019
2. Spike Lee just did a movie about racist jacKKKasses like you.
3. You've done NOTHING for Blacks, except remind us that the guy in the WH emboldens Radical White Terrorists.
2016: Trump waits a week to condemn David Duke.— Zeddy (@Zeddary) February 25, 2019
2017: Trump waits days to condemn Charlottesville Nazis, then defends/praises them off-script.
2019: Spike Lee wins Oscar for movie that condemns David Duke & Nazism.
Also 2019: Trump waits less than 10 hours to condemn Spike Lee

Trump: “how dare he attack me! That racist!”
Trump knows his name is synonymous with hate.
donald trump calling spike lee a racist the most 2019 shit ever https://t.co/3wJdRDsl58— Marlow Stern (@MarlowNYC) February 25, 2019
I'd hate to upset Donald Trump the way in which brilliant filmmaker Spike Lee has, so better just check some facts. Wasn't your grandad a Nazi, your dad a member of the KKK and weren't you put into office by far-right electoral scammer Steve Bannon, @realDonaldTrump https://t.co/cWvCsa4pDF— Will Black (@WillBlackWriter) February 25, 2019
