On his show on Monday, Howard said that Will Smith and Donald Trump are the same guy because of who they are.

Smith publicly apologized on Monday to Chris Rock for striking him on stage at the Oscars for a joke the comedian had made about his wife.

Smith apologized to Rock as he said his behavior at the Academy Awards was unacceptable.

Smith may face consequences for hitting Rock. Critics questioned why no action was taken immediately.

Smith struck Rock at the Oscars after he made a joke about Jada Pinkett Smith's shaved head. Pinkett Smith has a medical condition that causes hair loss and balding.

The first thing I said to myself was, "What the fuck is going on?"

Not one person came out because of Will Smith. Will Smith and Trump are the same person.

Smith was allowed to sit there for the rest of the awards after he made a joke about Rock.

After the violence, Smith walked to the stage to be applauded and honored with the Best actor award for King Richard, but pointedly not to Rock.

The Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences did not mention Smith's name in its statement. It announced on Monday that it was launching an investigation.

The academy said it would explore further action and consequences in accordance with its rules.

Rosie O'Donnell said Monday that we don't hold anyone accountable when it comes to the Trump years.

She was responding to a post by journalist Maria Shriver, who wrote: "We should never get to a place where we sit and watch a movie star hit someone on global television then, moments later, get a standing ovation while talking about love."

No one at the event walked out. She wondered if we were getting an independent psychological case study on how Trump got normalized.

So did like anyone walk out after that happened??? Or are we getting an independent psychological case study on how Trump got normalized?
