Trump Mocks The Emmys For Low Ratings

The Washington Post reports:

President Donald Trump is mocking Sunday’s Emmy Awards ceremony — where he himself was frequently mocked by host Stephen Colbert, presenters and prize-winners. Trump tweets, “I was saddened to see how bad the ratings were on the Emmys last night – the worst ever.”

The president’s Tuesday night tweet is a little off: The show was on Sunday, not Monday, and the ratings didn’t quite hit bottom, though they were close. The Nielsen company estimated that 11.4 million people watched, slightly more than last year’s lowest ever audience of 11.3 million.

    He is just pissed that Baldwin got an Emmy for portraying him and he never got one.

    • Rocco

      Lol,you know it’s true!

    • vorpal 😼

      Baldwin does make a better Trump than Trump, like how Tina Fey makes a better Palin than Palin and McCarthy makes a better Spicey than Spicey.

      • Tawreos

        Because we know there is a human being behind the makeup and the act, we don’t know that about the real thing.

        Whoops, made similar comment. Great Minds!

        • vorpal 😼

          …and then there’s us. 😽
          (I kid!)

    • GayOldLady

      Baldwin was a more authentic version of Trump than Trump!

    • Uncle Mark

      I love how Baldwin trolled him on that fact. Colbert was funny with all the slams against Twitler. As Howard Stern predicted, the worst thing that could happen to Trump is that he would become President. Trump loved the press and Hollywood before running for President. “He wants to be liked, he wants to be loved, he wants people to cheer for him.” It must kill him to be so reviled in the press and Hollywood…watching celebrities laugh at the plethora of anti-Trump jokes. Unfortunately, it’s not killing him enough !!

  • DaddyRay

    Imagine the ratings if a couple hundred thousand people still weren’t without power in Florida

  • barrixines

    I think if he put that he’d just bought himself a new Land Rover Range Rover in his tweets more people would give a shit.

  • Todd20036

    He’s pissed that Spicer was on the Emmys, and he wasn’t, AND that Spicer got eviscerated in Twitter.

  • Impeach the motherfucker already.

  • Todd20036

    I’d make fun of his stupid tweets more, but when he’s tweeting about the Emmy’s, he’s NOT tweeting about nuking North Korea

    • Gerry Fisher

      Good point

  • greenmanTN

    This would be funny if it weren’t so goddamn sad.

    • vorpal 😼

      Half of Breitbart posters have “deplorable” as part of their username.

      Maybe he’s trying to win back their support so they’ll buy more tacky hats to replace the ones they burned.

      • greenmanTN

        When your entire contribution to society is Truck Nutz and decals of Calvin pissing you have to get your ego boosts somewhere.

        • Tawreos

          I think Truck Nutz and Calvin pissing are more subtractions than contributions

          • greenmanTN

            It’s a step up from confederate flags so I’m giving them extra credit.

      • jerry

        And he needs to sell more hats, cause those are funding his legal defense.

      • greenmanTN

        When people tell you who they are, believe them.

  • Rex

    It’s wasn’t enough to threaten to wipe out an entire country, he had to end the day by insulting the people he is most envious of.

  • Frostbite

    I was saddened to see how bad the ratings are with this “Presedent” – the worst ever.

  • Daveed_WOW

    Trump. Is. Hitler.

    When he defends “Deplorables”, he defends White Supremacists.

  • “Smartest people of them all are the ‘DEPLORABLES.'” I think I need to shave off quite a few IQ points to decipher whatever the fuck that’s supposed to mean. BRB. Off to get stoned and drunk.

    • Steven B

      LOL. I’m sure it’s a reference to HRC’s comment during the campaign where she describes Trump’s base as ‘a basket of deplorables.’ So he’s trying to be sarcastic.

      • prixator

        He is OBSESSED with her! It’s bizarre.

  • greenmanTN

    Let’s see. 2 major hurricanes within 2 weeks and more on the way, his campaign manager has been indicted, his eldest son is in danger of being prosecuted for collusion, his financial genius of a son-in-law sank so much money in the 666 building it endangers his finances, and he just delivered a piping hot shit sandwich to the UN…

    But the 1st thing on his mind is the ratings for the fucking EMMYs?!

    • Gerry Fisher

      “Squirrel!”

    • Adam Schmidt

      At least part is because he thinks “ratings” = “right”. That if people are watching you, then they agree with you. And more, “ratings” also equals “important”. Thus why he’s all about ratings and crowd sizes. If he has crowds and high ratings, then he’s right and important and if he has more ratings than something else, then he’s better than them. It’s a scorecard for his ego.

      • greenmanTN

        “You’re not anybody in America unless you’re on TV.”

        • Adam Schmidt

          What I’m afraid of is the growing trend of “ratings” = “truth”.

          • greenmanTN

            We’ve outsourced truth for truthiness.

  • Tiger Quinn

    People are going to die because of Trumpcare and he’s tweeting about the Emmys while the GOP is lying through their teeth all over Twitter that it will HELP people. Forget about the Emmys people, this is a distraction.

  • j.martindale

    It is too bad the people who elected this POS have no shame.

  • Joe in PA

    Ratings. He’s “saddened”.

    Ya know who is is “saddened”? Most of America…because you got elected.

    • TuuxKabin

      Saddened by selection.

  • CB

    Frank Bruni summed it up well today:

    • Bluto

      This stunt would of been hysterically funny if it were done by Ms. McCartney.

  • Anastasia Beaverhousen

    The “president” at the UN, what a joke! I certainly didn’t watch, nor would I. A POLITICIAN using his platform to continually bash THE actors of The United States of America and their Emmy nominations and awards. Keywords: Failed Game Show Host! Sad!

    • vorpal 😼

      I’m still hoping this reality show gets canceled before the second season.

  • Karl Dubhe

    Indictments are coming, as is winter. I’m looking forward to both. 🙂

  • Gerry Fisher

    This is not about TV or ratings or entertainment, you orange-tinged Man-Baby. It’s about being President of the United States, what was once seen as the leader of the free world. [heavy sigh]

  • pete

    you don’t mention that you watched the emmys, but we know you did. which of the many jokes did you find the most hurtful?

  • GayOldLady

    The Emmys had better rating than you, President Nincompoop

  • JDS

    So he’ll show us by bombing North Korea.

  • justme

    Less watched Little Donnie’s speech to the U.N.
    The world saw how low the standards are in this country..

    Sorry world you’ll just have to go on without us..The U.S. is having to deal with another 5 year old’s tantrum… https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/5a9e9e14ebbe00de163773dcd39897cc32fbb2ab014c910a4f1cea0a5aad1131.jpg

  • kareemachan

    Look, asshat, you just threatened the world with nuclear war. And you have nothing better to do that criticize a TV show?

    How about you get your effing priorities straight.

  • Bill Doyle

    But it’s still 3million more than the 7.6million viewers he pulled in on The Apprentice…

  • marshlc

    He’s not even pretending to be the real president anymore, doing real work. He’s just an old man who lives at the White House and shouts at the TV.

  • Ken M

    Didn’t Kellyanne say he didn’t care about the Emmys? Another, though small, WH lie.

    • Uncle Mark

      You know that the Twitler regime lives in Bizaaro World. They project all their evils on their foes. Their lies are truth and the truth is a lie. When Trumplethinskin says he doesn’t care or watch something, he cares enough to watch and tweet-whine. When he boasts about knowing how to defeat ISIS or North Korea, it’s obvious he hasn’t a clue. When he calls his followers the smartest people, he knows they’re easily manipulated morons that he continues to con.

  • Jmdintpa

    I never considered myself a violent person. I never had violent thoughts. I never understood how people are driven to such rage they could commit violent acts against another human. Now I find myself thinking of all sorts of horrible yet wonderful things I would like to do and see done to this asshat. Feeding that tongue to hungry pigs while making him watch and taste his own blood running down his throat is an example of what runs through my mind when I see his face.

  • bambinoitaliano

    Took him long enough to react. What happen? John Kelly put finger cuffs on him? Must be nice for a president who was just talking about decimating North Korea with nuclear weapon to have time crying over a television award ceremony.

  • Jean-Marc in Canada

    Trump will have the highest Emmy ratings in history during his impeachment trial.

  • CharlestonDave

    Good thing Trump’s recent Mother of All Rallies, and his swearing-in ceremony, got such huge attendance “ratings,” or we’d have to call them #sad

  • roadtripboy

    The Emmy’s never have high ratings. Besides it was against the PBS premiere of Ken Burns’ Vietnam. One of the few names that brings viewers to PBS that don’t normally watch them.

  • Daveed_WOW

    Did anyone see …mother! ? The Javier Bardem character is a classic narcissist. God the creator and God the destroyer who – literally – lives to create chaos and annihilate his own family. He shows contempt for his home and family and he celebrates those who adore him. His adoring fans don’t seem to notice that he is abusive and negligent toward his sacred child and his wife the earth mother. Remind you of anyone?

    Trust me, Donald, when the N.Koreans launch, we will put you on TV again.
