Here’s Your President, Demonstrably Lying About His TV Ratings


If we’ve learned one thing over the past couple of years, it’s that there’s literally nothing that Donald Trump won’t lie about. And before that, we discovered that few things were more important to him than TV ratings. So it probably shouldn’t come as a surprise that he’s lying about TV ratings on Twitter:

“45.6 million people watched, the highest number in history” is, if I may borrow the parlance of the writer, fake news. At 45.6 million, Mr. Trump’s first official State of the Union address pulled few viewers than that of President Obama (48.0 million in 2010), or of President Bush (62.1 million in 2003). Hell, it didn’t even top his non-SOTU address to Congress this time last year (47.7 million), or Obama’s first in 2009 (52.4 million).

I know, MAGA-hatters, I know, there we go, using numbers, provided surely by the left-leaning, deep-stating, mainstream media. And you’re right, we probably shouldn’t lend much credence to the lib propagandists at (squints at tweet) Fox News:

Anyway. Just remember, if he’ll lie about this inconsequential bullshit, imagine the kind of half-truths he’ll tell about things that really matter!
