Donald Trump Retweets His Followers Praising Him

Donald Trump spent some of his 'executive time' this morning retweeting praise from his followers.

Donald Trump spent some of his ‘executive time’ this morning retweeting praise from his followers.

One tweet he especially liked used a photo of the Trumpster wrapped in a flag proclaiming, “Thank God for Trump!”

He also took a swipe at the NFL as some players over the opening weekend of the new season took a knee during the playing of the national anthem.

Trump tweeted that viewership is down 13%, but he wasn’t quite accurate.


CBS had its best opening NFL single-header rating in three years, drawing an average overnight household rating of 10.6 on its slate of five regional single-header games. That’s up 23 percent compared to CBS’ slate of games in Week 1 last year.

FOX averaged an 8.9 overnight rating on its 1 p.m. regional games, up six percent compared to last year. In its 4 p.m. national window, which featured the Carolina Panthers defeating the Dallas Cowboys, Fox garnered a 15.7 overnight rating, up slightly from last year.

In fact, Panthers-Cowboys drew the second-highest overnight Week 1 ratings in that national window since 2014, and it’s the seventh-highest number since 2004, according to Sports Media Watch.

What Trump failed to include is that most other programming, including scripted television shows, have seen drops in their viewership as streaming services like Hulu and Netflix continue to garner more and more customers.
