Jake Tapper Puts Donald Trump’s Mocking Of TV Ratings In Proper Perspective

Former president Donald Trump engaged in one of his favorite hobbies on Tuesday ― criticizing the media ― only to get eviscerated by CNN’s Jake Tapper.

Trump released a statement where he gleefully celebrated that cable news ratings are down because he’s no longer in office.

“They say the news is ‘boring’ since I left D.C. Morning Joe, Joy Reid (whoever that is?), Nicole Wallace, Jake Tapper, and even Chris Wallace, at Fox, in free fall,” he said.

Although Fox News rules the ratings roost, all the news networks have showed steep declines since President Joe Biden took office, the website noted.

But while Trump was trying to take credit for the lower ratings, Tapper suggested the former president might want to rethink his comments.

“If I had incited and inspired a deadly insurrection and attempt to undo American democracy I might not be out there bragging about how many viewers it had. On any channel,” he tweeted. “But maybe that’s just me, I’m a different breed of cat.”

Tapper couldn’t help but point out that his own ratings weren’t as terrible as Trump claimed.

Still, some Twitter users did admit they weren’t watching the news as much ― and they considered that a good thing.
