"Hollywood, I don't call them the elites - I think the elites are the people they go after, in many cases", the president said.

The U.S. President attacked the film industry while speaking with the press on Friday at the White House. "You talk about racism, Hollywood is racist!" They create their own violence, and then try to blame others.

The president also said he is going to get "tough" on the social media platform Twitter, as several Republican campaigns boycotted the social media platform this week for showing bias toward conservatives.

(The job, it should be endlessly reiterated, of President of the United States of America.) The latest lunacy to come from his perpetually pursed lips is a statement that Hollywood is really racist.

Trump appeared to be referring to a controversial film called The Hunt, which features liberal-elites hunting down conservatives, referred to as "deplorables", for sport.

"Hollywood is really bad", he said, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Universal Studios pulled TV and digital ads for the film after two mass shootings in Dayton, Ohio, and El Paso, Texas, roiled the country last weekend.

"Hollywood is really racist". What they're doing, with the form of motion pictures they're placing out, it is truly very harmful for our nation.

While the film doesn't explicitly say the people being hunted are supporters of Trump, the people are described by one of the elites as "deplorables", a term coined by former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, according to The Hollywood Reporter. "What Hollywood is doing is a tremendous disservice to our country".

Given how the shooter in El Paso was directly inspired by Donald Trump's racist speeches, it's not surprising that the studio made a decision to pull the trailer in light of the events - but that didn't stop Fox News from making a splash out of it.
