Trump awards himself Oscar for Best President

6 Mar 2018

Manchild-in-Chief Donald Trump has today awarded himself the Academy Award for Best President.

 

The President took time from his busy schedule to present the gong in protest against the "liberal elites" who called him out during Monday's Oscars ceremony.

 

Later this afternoon Mr Trump tweeted "Old celebrities should stop commenting on politics. Embarrassing!"

 

Supporters refute claims of hypocrisy, given Trump's beginnings as a television personality, pointing out his primary role before taking Office was as a sexual predator.

 

The award was presented to the Good Hombre in a ceremony attended by the "largest crowd to ever attend anything ever."

 

"Except Mr Trump's inauguration" a White House Press Officer hastily added.

 

The President is said to consider the win his most remarkable victory, second only to the time he convinced attractive model Melania to marry him.

 

"The Emancipation Proclamation?" Mr Trump scoffed, "Lying Lincoln will tell you he issued that first. That's fake news, folks."
