You just knew that the incident at the Oscars where Will Smith smacked Chris Rock would leave many of the hottest takes in its wake. Because Donald Trump continues to live rent-free in so many heads, what happened at the Academy Awards last night was bound to be tied to the 45th president in some fashion. Among the takes along those lines is this one from CNN analyst Asha Rangappa:
So did like anyone walk out after that happened??? Or are we getting an independent psychological case study on how Trump got normalized?

Ah yes, Trump is definitely the reason Will Smith acted like a child and you’re definitely not an insane person https://t.co/MqDozq6d9e

What isn’t Trump’s fault?
More people will probably get on that train as well.
Looking forward to the lecture from Morning Joe and Joy Reid about how the Will Smith assault on Chris Rock is the fault of Trump and Republicans.
