When I was on the book tour  people said, 'Curse at me!' And I was like 'What?' 'Curse at me when you sign the book.' ... Or people had their cellphones, saying, 'Leave a message cursing people out for calling me.' What? I'm not doing that. I need a reason to curse at people.

Jimmy Kimmel and President Trump’s war of words just took another ratings-fueled turn.

The president emphatically reminded his Twitter followers that Sunday’s Academy Awards were the “lowest rated Oscars in HISTORY” and opined as to the reason for the program’s decreasing viewership.

“Lowest rated Oscars in HISTORY. Problem is, we don’t have Stars anymore - except your President (just kidding, of course)!” he tweeted Tuesday morning.
