US President Donald Trump has boasted about achieving better television ratings than the 9/11 terrorist attacks on New York City and the Pentagon.
Attacks in which 2977 of his own people were murdered and another 6000 were injured. Attacks in which an entire city, country, in fact a decent portion of the world, were left gripped with grief and fear.
But never mind that. Because the President’s appearances on Sunday morning television programs have attracted a bigger audience.
The 70-year-old Republican made the claim during a recent interview with The Associated Press about his first 100 days in office.
Questioned if he believed he’d changed the way people vote, President Trump cited his “very high ratings” on weekend breakfast television, which he claimed to be “two or three times higher” than normal.
