Kimmel’s plan to bait Trump at the Oscars fails on so many levels; one awesome tweet leaves a mark

During his hosting duties at the Academy Awards ceremony Sunday night, Jimmy Kimmel attempted to bait President Donald Trump into a Twitter war.

But he never got a rise out of the commander-in-chief.

“You know we’re more than two hours into the show, and Donald Trump hasn’t tweeted at us once,” Kimmel told the audience. “I’m starting to get worried about him.”

“Hold on a second,” he said while furiously sending out a message to his Twitter followers.

When this elicited no response from the president, Kimmel tried another approach. He simply tweeted Trump’s Twitter handle alongside that of actress Meryl Streep, who used the Golden Globe ceremony last month to launch into a huge rant directed at Trump. Instead of making a statement, it turned out to be the event’s most awkward moment.

Still not a word from the commander-in-chief. Former Trump campaign spokeswoman Katrina Pierson did, however, respond to Kimmel’s messages, stating that the president was too busy doing other things — like carrying out the duties expected of the leader of the free world.

That same evening Trump hosted a White House ball attended by 46 governors as a part of the National Governors Association winter meeting.

On January 2, Kimmel tweeted what appears to have been a New Year’s resolution.

That may be good advice for everyone — including Meryl Streep, Democratic members of Congress and the flurry of Trump-haters screaming and carrying out acts of violence and destruction.
