“My absence is out of respect for the people of my country,” says Oscar winner and Iranian-American Asghar Farhadi in a statement read by a proxy this evening during the Oscars. He won the Oscar for his trite melodrama, The Salesman, but should have gotten it for lying.
Hollywood favors Iran and just gave them some great PR.
President Trump did not pass any inhumane law to ban immigrants from the U.S. but that is what he said.

The Oscars are predictable. They gave the award to two Muslims so far, Mahershala Ali and Asghar Farhadi. The Oscars aren’t about who was best, it’s about politics.
So far, all the winners have made vile comments.
