Wolfgang Puck Already Made The Oscars Political With Joke About Donald Trump

“No matter what Trump says, we have a little Mexican influence too.”

Basically as soon as the Oscar red carpet telecast began, Wolfgang Puck made a joke about President Donald Trump.

Explaining the cuisine he’d be serving for the Oscar after-party ceremony, Puck described the culinary elements of his work to E! host Giuliana Rancic, saying, “No matter what Trump says, we have a little Mexican influence too.”

Rancic, remember, is married to Bill Rancic, the winner of the very first season of Trump’s “The Apprentice.”

Since what appeared to be the first Trump joke of the night happened barely minutes into the show’s TV coverage, it certainly seemed like this moment might predict the tone for the show.

Puck also made a point to mention that the remaining food from the after-party would go to feed the local homeless population.

Puck’s youngest son, Oliver, stood by his side during the segment. The child apparently helped in the preparation for tonight’s food.

On the carpet, Puck showed off a few golden-statue-themed desserts.
