Last night the 69th annual Emmy Awards aired live from The Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles. Donald Glover was the announced winner for Best Directing for a Comedy Series on behalf of his FX series Atlanta. He made history being the first African American to win an award in the category. He gave thanks to his co-director Hiro Murai, saying ‘He taught me everything about directing. He had the eye for this show and he’s just amazing. I really want to give this to Hiro and just say I love you and thank you for being my best friend.’

The night didn’t end there when Donald also won the Emmy for Best Lead Actor in a Comedy.

‘I want to thank Trump for making Black people number one on the most oppressed list, He’s the reason I’m probably up here.’
