Jimmy Kimmel had the most perfect response to Trump's mean tweet about the Oscars
Someone get a fire blanket, cos Trump just got burned!
If anyone knows how to handle a mean tweet, it is Jimmy Kimmel.
He basically dedicates a portion of his talk show to the concept, and if you need any reminder, here is the most recent entry, with Mean Tweets Musical Edition featuring TLC, Usher, Nick Jonas, Blink-182 and loads more:

So basically, if anyone knows how to react to a mean tweet, it is Jimmy Kimmel.
Kimmel hosted the Oscars this year, and while the race for the Best Picture winner was a much closer call than most previous years, the show itself still resulted in the lowest viewership ever (or at least since the viewership has been counted), with "just" 26.5 million viewers.
Apparently because he has nothing better to do with his time, President Donald Trump picked up on this factoid, and guess what he did?
You'll never guess!
Yep, he tweeted about it.
Lowest rated Oscars in HISTORY. Problem is, we don’t have Stars anymore - except your President (just kidding, of course)!

So in the space of less than 280 characters, he managed to call out the Oscars, insult EVERY single person who attended the Oscars, and then claim he was the only star left... except PSYCH! It was just a joke.
You know who else knows jokes? Jimmy Kimmel.
Thanks, lowest rated President in HISTORY. https://t.co/E01UgDaZ3T

No reply yet from Trump to Kimmel's flame-thrower tweet, but we imagine it will only be a matter of time...
