Donald Trump’s ratings drop by 7 million viewers for Supreme Court pick Brett Kavanaugh

Donald Trump with Brett Kavanaugh

It was rumored by “annoyed” aides that President Donald Trump picked 9 p.m. as the time for revealing his Supreme Court pick because he wanted his Fox News friend Sean Hannity to score a ratings bump. However, the president’s ratings aren’t what they used to be.

According to AdWeek, Trump’s ratings fell from 33 million for the His Neil Gorsuch reveal to 26 million for the announcement of Brett Kavanaugh.

Trump has been obsessed with ratings both as a candidate and as the president. While running, he touted that he gave late-night hosts their top ratings. He specifically cited Stephen Colbert, Jimmy Fallon and Jimmy Kimmel for appearing on their shows and scoring major numbers.

He also promotes positive coverage of his administration on Fox News and equates it to the ratings.

He’s used ratings as another way of mocking his adversaries. Last year, Trump attacked Arnold Schwarzenegger’s leadership as host for “The Apprentice,” but the commentary was really more about promoting his own success as the host.

“It’s been a total disaster,” Trump said at a prayer breakfast. “And I want to just pray for Arnold for those ratings, OK?”

It wasn’t long after Schwarzenegger announced he was leaving.

“She’s extremely serious,” said one of those people, who has recently spoken to Sanders about a possible campaign.

Right now Donald Trump thinks he’s winning — and he might not be wrong

Donald Trump thinks he's winning.

For months, Americans have grown accustomed to Trump in his cornered-rat mode, lashing out defensively and ruminating obsessively over the possibility of impeachment. But his tweets this week have been surprisingly cheerful, suffused with the buoyant spirits of a teenage bully who has successfully swirlied a nerd.

First, like an overexcited child on Christmas Eve who unwraps his presents too soon, Trump — overcome with the pleasures of racist sadism — tweeted on Monday night that "ICE will begin the process of removing the millions of illegal aliens."

Here are 7 wild, bizarre and pathetic moments from Trump’s ‘campaign launch’

Published

on

On Tuesday night, President Donald Trump held a rally that was billed as the official launch his re-election campaign — though he has never really stopped holding campaign rallies.

As expected, the president ranted, lied, and engaged in the raucous attacks that are central to his connection with Republican voters. Some of it was actually just sad, such as his continued obsession with Hillary Clinton.

Here are seven of the wildest, disturbing and pathetic moments from the rally:

1. He said Democrats "want to destroy our country as we know it."
