A look back at Trump’s live-tweeting of the Oscars

When Hollywood stars celebrate their Oscar wins at the annual Governors Ball bash on Sunday, Donald and Melania Trump will be hosting their own White House Governors’ Ball in Washington, D.C.

The scheduling conflict means Trump will likely not be watching the 89th Academy Awards live on TV.

“The first lady has put a lot of time into this event that’s going to occur and welcoming our nation’s governors to the capital,” White House press secretary Sean Spicer told reporters Wednesday. “And I have a feeling that that’s where the president and the first lady are going to be focused on on Sunday night, and so we’ll go from there.”

Trump did not tweet about the Academy Awards last year. Instead, in between appearances on Sunday morning shows and a speech in Alabama, Trump directed at least one of his Feb. 28 tweets at his then-presidential opponent, Sen. Marco Rubio, calling him a “lightweight no show Senator from Florida.”

In 2015, Trump deemed that year’s ceremony, hosted by Neil Patrick Harris, an “insult” to previous Oscars. He also got technical, criticizing even the ceremony’s graphics.

In 2014, Trump declared the awards ceremony “AWFUL” and compared it to the website for then-President Obama’s Affordable Care Act. Ellen DeGeneres hosted the Oscars that year, while “12 Years a Slave” won best picture and stars including Matthew McConaughey and Lupita Nyong’o took home top acting honors.
