Jimmy Kimmel didn't shy away from political jokes during the 89th Academy Awards. Throughout the night, the Oscars host made multiple Trump jokes, calling Meryl Streep highly overrated and telling the fake news media to leave.

Hey @realDonaldTrump u up?— Jimmy Kimmel (@jimmykimmel) February 27, 2017
In under five minutes, the first tweet had more than 100,000 retweets. A few minutes later, it became Kimmel's most-retweeted tweet.
President Trump, who was attending the annual Governors Ball at the White House, has been silent on Twitter throughout the ceremony. The Governors Ball, which is traditionally the first formal event at the White House for a new president, usually falls on the same night as the Oscars.
