Conservative commentator Matt Drudge fired back at Jimmy Kimmel’s Oscar monologue, saying jokes made by President TrumpDonald John TrumpAverage tax refunds down double-digits, IRS data shows White House warns Maduro as Venezuela orders partial closure of border with Colombia Trump administration directs 1,000 more troops to Mexican border MORE the night before were funnier.

“Trump jokes last night at Gridiron much funnier than Kimmel’s Oscar monologue,” Drudge tweeted. “Producers have laugh track and applause track amped up, while camera shots of audience don’t match any intensity #oscarhasnopenis.”


Trump participated in the Gridiron Club dinner on Saturday, a long-standing D.C. tradition in which presidents deliver humor-laden speeches.

Drudge’s tweet was most likely a response to a joke from Kimmel about the golden statue’s body.

“After all the awards given for achievements in show business over the years, Oscar is still number one,” Kimmel said. “Oscar is the most beloved and respected man in Hollywood and there’s a reason why. Just look at him. Keeps his hands where you can see them. Never says a rude word. And most importantly, no penis at all. He is literally a statue of limitations.”

Kimmel also took a shot at Vice President Pence’s stance on LGBTQ rights, saying the Academy Award-nominee for Best Picture “Call Me By Your Name” about a homosexual relationship was made just to “upset” Pence.
