Joaquin Phoenix collected the best actor award for The Joker at the Baftas.
Donald Trump was quick to take to twitter to let Phoenix, who he referred to as the capital city of Arizona, know that he was incredibly impressed with the win.
Trump was also among the first to congratulate the Kansas City Chiefs in the Super Bowl, taking to Twitter to applaud the NFL champions and the ‘Great State of Kansas’.
A poll of his twitter followers indicated that they supported a move to rename Kansas City “Kansas State” to better reflect reality according to the President. One anonymous follower offered her opinion, saying “A terrible terrible mistake was made when they named Kansas wrong. We’re going to put it right. This is gonna happen right away after we finished building a wall around Mexico City.”
The Kansas City Chiefs are based in Kansas City, Missouri.
Joaquin Phoenix is able to change his geographical position. This is because he based in his body, as a human being and not the capital city of Arizona.
Many celebrities including Viola Davis congratulated Phoenix on his win.
Trump wrote “Congratulations to the Phoenix on a great award for a fantastic sort of long TV show. You represented the Great State of Arizona and, in fact, the entire USA, so very well. Our Country is PROUD OF YOU!”.
Phoenix has received praise for using his Baftas speech to call out “systemic racism” in the film industry.
This copy of the this speech was left out of Trumps popular culture briefing notes, with Stephanie Grisham suggesting her dog ate it, before scratching “fake news fake news” and flying off into the night.
