Trump is the kind of guy that will tell you the stupidest thing he can remember so you give him attention. His the Paris Hilton of politics.
The problem being that he's not complaining about "new movies" so much as the fact that "a movie from South Korea" won Best Picture so his invocation of Gone with the Wind, an 80-year-old American film that romanticises the antebellum South to a problematic degree, just reads as him doing a racist dog-whistle to his base (and it's also a little hard to believe that the guy who fast-forwards through the non-action scenes of Bloodsport would sit through all four hours of Gone with the Wind). I guess Sunset Blvd. does fit with him complaining about Hollywood phonies, though.

What's the problem? Corona virus? Who cooks dinner around the house? Are you going to ask her not to cook your dinner?

Taking my Charvel (guitar) down to get a professional setup. It's been a few years! I will be stuck playing my Ibanez for a few days.

Good luck at your lesson!

Yea man, it was incredible!
For sure. He was definitely making a Tuesday's Gone reference.
Maybe he was talking about his hair.
Trump said, "Bring back Gone With The Wind"?
Are we sure he didn't really mean something else by that?
