Well said!

Melissa Rivers has been a staple at the Oscars ever since she began covering the red carpet back in 1995, so it makes sense that she'd have an opinion on the awards show's latest controversy.

As you're surely aware, the Academy Awards came under fire over the last week after it was revealed that almost all of the nominees this year are white… including every single acting category!

Donald Trump Talks Stacey Dash, BET, & The All-White Oscars — And Some Of His Comments May Surprise You…

| Filed under: TV NewsDonald TrumpChris RockOscarsBET AwardsControversy

Is it just us, or is Donald Trump being the reasonable one?!

Everyone in Hollywood is throwing in their two cents about the lack of diversity in the entertainment industry after the Oscars revealed its twenty acting nominees were all-white for the second consecutive year.

Now, the GOP frontrunner is weighing in on the controversy, saying he thinks everyone should be "represented properly!"

Dialing in on Wednesday's Fox & Friends, the presidential candidate said Hollywood's lack of diversity was "really sad" but still dismissed Rev. Al Sharpton's call for a boycott at this year's award show. He said:

"I think it's a tough situation. I think it's really sad. Al is just a guy who wants to get publicity for himself. And I understand him very well."

The 69-year-old then commented on Stacey Dash's interview from earlier in the morning — where she criticized all-black award shows like the BET Awards — and Trump couldn't agree more, saying he "never even thought of it from that standpoint."

Watch the full interview (above) to hear Trump's thoughts on how Oscars host Chris Rock should handle the backlash during the show!
