Steve Harvey must be thanking his lucky stars now that someone else has finally screwed up the announcement of a big winner on a national stage.

Much has been made of the way the Oscars wrapped up on Sunday night, as America watched “La La Land” be mistakenly announced the winner for Best Picture.

Instead, it was “Moonlight” that went home with the prestigious award.

Today, President Donald Trump has joined the dogpile, chalking up the mistake to an intense focus on politics.

Trump called the event “sad.”

“I think they were focused so hard on politics that they didn’t get the act together at the end,” he told Breitbart News. “It was a little sad. It took away from the glamour of the Oscars. It didn’t feel like a very glamorous evening. I’ve been to the Oscars. There was something very special missing, and then to end that way was sad.”

President Trump has not been one to stay silent about this celebrity gathering or comments made by Hollywood actors.

In 2014, he described the event as “bullshit.”

In 2015, Trump called the Oscars “a sad joke, very much like our President.”

More recently, Trump responded to actress Meryl Streep she gave her much discussed speech at the Golden Globes.

He called her “one of the most over-rated actresses in Hollywood.”
