Twitter hammers racist Donald Trump after he attacks Spike Lee over his Oscar speech in which he told voters to do the right thing in the 2020 presidential election. He also called for love over hate, but Trump attacked him as a racist.
Trump tweeted: “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!”

Spike Lee’s remarks during his acceptance speech: “The 2020 presidential election is around the corner. Let’s all mobilize, let’s all be on the right side of history, let’s choose love over hate, let’s do the right thing.”
Nowhere in his remarks did he call Donald Trump’s name or engaged in a “racist hit job.” But what did Trump do? He attacked another prominent black American as illiterate for reading a speech from prepared remarks. This is the same dude who uses a teleprompter and spits out word salads when he goes off script.
Former President Barack Obama deserves all the credit for the black unemployment rate falling not the person who was in office in less than three years. In Trump’s mind, black people shouldn’t complain because massa has given them crumbs off the table.
Twitter clapped back hard:
The most racist president in modern American history who reads teleprompter worse than any national figure alive is attacking a black man for being “racist” and reading from notes
Churchill read from notes.
FDR read from notes.
Reagan read from notes.

Are you fucking kidding me right now?? Why are you always talking shit about black people?
Experts say you now have approx 100 words in your vocabulary. That's equivalent to a 5 year old. Spike Lee writes & directs Oscar winning films.
Jealousy is ugly. https://t.co/nvBntzK9fA

Mmh, who am I supposed to believe now? A dedicated African-American or a notoriously lying white racist who called the mob in Charlottesville “very fine people”?

Funny…. You can’t read from a teleprompter much less a piece of paper either…… Did he call you a racist? I don’t remember him using that word. You must be deaf too because he never said racist or your name!

Note: Spike Lee didn’t actually say one anti-Trump thing in his speech.
Also, once again, note that Trump insults the intelligence of a prominent black figure. https://t.co/XAf6ZsXM6E
