Trump Says He Was 'Saddened' By 'Worst Ever' Emmy Ratings

Trump Says He Was 'Saddened' By 'Worst Ever' Emmy Ratingsā€

"And we all know the Emmys mean a lot to Donald Trump", Colbert said.

Trump tweeted, "I was saddened to see how bad the ratings were on the Emmys last night - the worst ever".

Just hours after threatening to "totally destroy North Korea" in a speech before the United Nations General Assembly, President Donald Trump had something else on his mind: the politically charged 2017 Emmy Awards. "Smartest people of them all are the 'DEPLORABLES'".

Host Stephen Colbert and numerous celebrities at the awards referred to Trump in at least 34 direct and indirect references, according to the Washington Free Beacon.

Donald Trump's remarks about the low ratings for the Emmys are correct, as a 8.2 overnight rating shows a number that is down 2.4 percent from previous year.

The 69th Primetime Emmy Awards garnered 11.38 million viewers according to Deadline Hollywood - effectively tying the show's bleak 2016 ratings. But the show averaged a worse rating in the prized 18-49 age demographic. In a tweet from 2013, Mr Trump cited political bias for his lack of Emmy wins.

Kellyanne Conway, advisor to Trump, appeared on Fox and Friends TV Show, and criticised the behaviour of those present on the show. "They want you to stick to your knitting".

"We did have a whole storyline about an impeachment, but we abandoned that because we were anxious that someone else might get to it first", actress Julia Louis-Dreyfus said upon winning her sixth Emmy for "Veep". "They want you to stick to the stuff that other people write for you". Colbert also bashed Trump's previous Emmy defeats as host of "Celebrity Apprentice".

The last four minutes of Colbert's opening monologue contained a flurry of Trump jokes, including poking fun at his television watching habits, how he lost the popular vote to Hillary Clinton, and, most memorably, setting up Sean Spicer's self-deprecating cameo to declare the Emmy audience the largest ever.
