As part of his Tuesday Twitter storm, President Donald Trump blamed the low ratings of the 90th Academy Awards on the fact that there aren't big stars anymore, except for him. He then noted he was joking.

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

In previous Oscars tweets, Trump has touted himself as a better host.

The internet was quick to wonder if perhaps the president wasn't "kidding" after all.

Some also noted that this continues more of Trump's obsession with ratings. While others wondered why Americans have the lowest rated president in history.
