Emmys: Trump still can't let the Emmys go, tweets again about ratings


On Tuesday, Trump's obsession with crowd size and ratings was on display yet again when he tweeted about the 2017 Emmy Awards. 
After spending a day at the office/UN General Assembly, mingling with world leaders, name-calling volatile dictators and using adjectives, Trump treated himself to some Twitter time pillorying the awards show that denied him the top honors in 2012. 
He was "saddened" by the award show's ratings and also threw in a shoutout to the "deplorables," the "smartest people of them all," presumably because they were avoiding the politically liberal awards show. 

Trump weighing in on TV ratings has been the new normal for a while now, but–also in classic Trump fashion–the president got his facts wrong by incorrectly stating that this year's Emmy ratings were "the worst ever."
While it's true the ratings were low, part of an ongoing trend for the Emmys, it wasn't the worst ever. According to The Hollywood Reporter, The Emmys garnered 11.4 million average viewers on Sunday. The scientific "worst ever" average viewership for the Emmys came in at 11.3 million, for the 2016 awards.
