Trump lies about TV ratings for State of the Union in embarrassing morning melt down
President Obama was better.
Donald Trump’s first State of the Union address might have been one of the longest, but it certainly was not one of the popular.
Which hasn’t stopped him from lying about it.
After a nearly 34-hour silence on Twitter, Trump crowed Thursday, “Thank you for all of the nice compliments and reviews on the State of the Union speech. 45.6 million people watched, the highest number in history.”
But Trump’s address wasn’t the highest-watched in history. Not even close. In an all-too-familiar crushing embarrassment for him, Trump fell short of President Barack Obama again. Obama’s first address in 2010 was viewed by 48 million Americans.
Trump also fell short behind Bill Clinton and George W. Bush too.
Trump spends every day in the shadow of the much more accomplished president who preceded him, and from whose policies he still benefits.
With his pathetic and demonstrably false boast about viewers, Trump went out of his way to remind us all that Obama bested him again. It won’t be the last time.
