Getting a mean nickname from Donald Trump, 73, is nearly a compliment, as it shows how much someone has gotten under his skin.

Brad Pitt stole the spotlight during this year's award season with his remarkably witty and hilarious acceptance speeches. Following the Oscars, Eric Trump called Pitt a "smug elitist". Trump said, to loud cheers. "He's a little wiseguy".

Pitt has not responded to the latest Trump attack.

Speaking at his rallies, President Donald Trump has a tendency to go off script and off topic.

Trump, who is on a four-day Western U.S. swing, gave a harsh review as well of Wednesday night's Democratic presidential debate, particularly the performance of former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who the president said had a ragged night.

Before he even started thanking anyone, Brad began his acceptance speech by saying, "They told me I only have 45 seconds up here, which is 45 seconds more than the Senate gave John Bolton this week". In the end, the adults do the right thing."The Republican-controlled Senate on February 5 acquitted Trump nearly entirely along party lines".

Donald Trump has mocked South Korean film Parasite and its best picture victory at the Oscars.

"I'm looking for like, let's get "Gone with the Wind" - can we get like "Gone with the Wind" back, please?"

'He got up and said little wiseguy statements.

"Understandable, he can't read", they quipped.

Furthermore, Trump also admitted that it's not just the speech that made him dislike Brad. Best foreign movie. No.

"How bad were the Academy Awards this year?" asked Mr Trump at the rally in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Imitating an Academy Awards presenter, he said: "And the victor is a movie from South Korea". "And the victor is a movie from South Korea, what the hell was that all about?" What the hell was that all about? We've got enough problems with South Korea, with trade.

That represented a 22% jump in Parasite's domestic haul, one of the best Best Picture box office bumps of the last five years. "Was it good? I don't know." he said, going on to reflect wistfully on classic Hollywood movies of yore.

"Has anything ever been more telling than that he wants Gone with the Wind back?"

"And of course he loves pro-Confederate 'Gone With the Wind, '" tweeted Max Boot, a columnist for The Post.

Neon, the American distributor of Parasite, was quick to reply. "Dumbing down of America", another Twitter user commented.

On Friday morning's edition of CNN's New Day, Camerota introduced a clip of Trump at his rally, ranting about Best Picture victor "Parasite".
