Director Spike Lee won his first ever Academy Award at the Oscars on Sunday night when he took the statuette for Best Adapted Screenplay for BlacKkKlansman. As with Martin Scorsese's win for The Departed and Ennio Morricone's win for The Hateful Eight, it was a long overdue recognition for the beloved director, capped off by a joyous hug onstage with presenter and longtime collaborator Samuel L. Jackson and a great, nonpartisan speech about love triumphing over hate. It was one of the feel-good moments of last night's Oscars broadcasts.

So of course Trump had to take a dump all over it this morning, complaining in a tweet about Lee reading prepared remarks while "doing his racist hit on your President."

You can watch the speech below, where Lee declares: "Before the world tonight, I give praise to our ancestors who have built this country into what it is today along with the genocide of its native people. We all connect with our ancestors. We will have love and wisdom regained; we will regain our humanity. It will be a powerful moment." He added at the end: "The 2020 presidential election is around the corner. Let’s all mobilize. Let’s all be on the right side of history. Make the moral choice between love versus hate. Let’s do the right thing! You know I had to get that in there."

As NY Magazine writes, Trump's snide remark about reading notes is "a classic Republican dog-whistle charge" which was used against President Obama "to suggest he was shallow and uninformed, incapable of understanding the words that were written for him." They write, "Trump, who has turned a lot of his party’s subtext into text, has performed a usefully clarifying service. By reviving a version of the teleprompter attack on Spike Lee, he has made clear that 'can’t speak without notes' is a joke about black people being unintelligent."

The rest of the night was still pretty good for Lee as well, especially whenever he was dunking on Best Picture winner Green Book. "I’m snakebit. Every time someone is driving somebody, I lose,” he said backstage about the controversial film, referencing Driving Miss Daisy, which won Best Picture the year Do The Right Thing came out.

"I thought I was courtside at the [Madison Square] Garden, and the ref made a bad call," he was also heard saying. And then there was also this absolutely delightful moment:

Pushing aside Green Book and all those baffling Bohemian Rhapsody editing wins, here is a list of some of the positive highlights of the rest of this year's Oscars: Not having a host seemed to work out just fine in the end, keeping everything moving at a decent pace; Olivia Colman won Best Actress and gave great face during her speech; Rami Malek was this year's Jennifer Lawrence; Melissa McCarthy, Brian Tyree Henry, and McCarthy's bunny puppet were the best presenters of the night; Black Panther's Ruth Carter and Hannah Beachler won for Best Costume Design and Best Production Design, the first nominations and wins for a black person in either category; Alfonso Cuarón won Best Director, Best Foreign Film and Best Cinematographer for his beautiful film Roma; Billy Porter's outfit; the John Mulaney reaction shot to Tom Morello on stage; Bohemian Rhapsody didn't win Best Picture; everyone loves Julia Roberts; and Lady Gaga & Bradley Cooper launched an excellent new meme with their performance of "Shallow."
