First of all, let's just pause for a moment and consider the fact that the current US President is using social media to talk about ratings for an awards show.
An awards show. He addressed the UN the other day, and he's talking about ratings today. Priorities.
I was saddened to see how bad the ratings were on the Emmys last night - the worst ever. Smartest people of them all are the "DEPLORABLES."

So, Trump tweeted earlier this morning that he was "saddened to see how bad the ratings were on the Emmys last night - the worst ever," and - as always - facts didn't stop Trump from making his point. According to industry bible Variety's figures, this year's ratings were "approximately even with last year’s all-time low in total viewers. Sunday’s awards ceremony averaged 11.4 million viewers, compared to 2016’s 11.3 million."
Just think - this guy has access to nuclear weapons, and he can't even read numbers properly. The world is so f*cked.
