Trump Mocks Emmys’ Poor Ratings on Twitter: ‘The Smartest People of Them All Are the “DEPLORABLES”‘

President Trump took the Twitter late Tuesday night to mock the poor ratings of the 69th Emmy Awards.

“I was saddened to see how bad the ratings were on the Emmys last night,” Trump sarcastically tweeted. “The worst ever. Smartest people of them all are the ‘DEPLORABLES.'”

The Emmy Awards, which aired on Sunday, matched the all-time low record in viewership, nabbing only 11.4 million viewers. The ceremony had a strong anti-Trump theme throughout the night, with host Stephen Colbert mocking the president in his opening musical number and monologue. Trump was also ridiculed by winners Alec Baldwin, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Donald Glover, as well as presenters Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin.
