Two days after the 90th annual Academy Awards aired live on ABC, President Donald Trump took to social media to mock the award ceremony’s historically-low ratings. The Oscars, which garnered 26.5 million viewers this year, lacked a certain star power, according to the president—who joked about the all-time low on Twitter.

“Lowest rated Oscars in HISTORY,” Trump tweeted Tuesday morning. “Problem is, we don’t have Stars anymore – except your President (just kidding, of course)!” The tweet received mixed reactions on social media, from people wondering what took him so long to weigh in on Hollywood’s biggest night to others taking a jab at the president’s approval rating.

“Oh goody, I was waiting for @realDonaldTrump to tweet about the “Surprised it took him this long.” Another person wondered “how is this real life,” while others appreciated his humor. Even John Cusack and Mark Hamill reacted to the tweet.

Jimmy Kimmel, who hosted this year’s Oscars, also responded to Trump’s tweet, writing, “Thanks, lowest rated President in HISTORY.” Last week, Trump’s approval rating dipped to 35 percent—matching a “historic low” from a December poll that marked the lowest approval rating of his presidency.
