Kirsters Baish| Ultra liberal late night comedian Jimmy Kimmel still seems to be shaken up by President Donald Trump’s tweet in which he mocked the record low Oscar ratings that Kimmel brought in as the host. Kimmel actually felt it was appropriate to blame Netflix for the horrific ratings.
Early in the day on Monday, President Trump sent out a tweet that was clearly making fun of the Oscars. It read, “Lowest rated Oscars in HISTORY. Problem is, we don’t have Stars anymore – except your President (just kidding, of course)!”
Kimmel was already on the defense after early ratings of the award show came out. He answered with what would have been a brutal response… if it had any validity to it. Kimmel responded, “Thanks, lowest rated President in HISTORY.”
Rasmussen is one of the most trusted and accurate pollsters that existed during the 2016 presidential election, and it stated that Trump is actually at a 48 percent job approval rating, and he has actually scored higher than former President Barack Obama did at the same time during his presidency. It doesn’t seem like Trump is doing as badly as Kimmel would like us to think.
Kimmel was probably well aware that his initial response to President Trump made him look like an idiot, so he thought he would try again on his television show “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” He didn’t do much better on his show than he did the first time. He thought this time that he would give an excuse as to why the Oscars viewership hit an all time low while he was hosting. His explanation, however, was totally fabricated.
This guy is total delusional. Watch the entire thing below:
The entire thing is a crock of horse crap. Prior to Sunday’s Oscar show, the prior record low rating was in 2008. This was a few years before Netflix became a household name. It is important to also take into account the fact that Oscar ratings actually increased between 2013 and 2014. Ratings went from 40.3 million viewers to 43.7 million viewers. I don’t think blaming Netflix is really fair since there is absolutely zero validity to the claim.
Moreover, Sunday night’s ratings drop was not part of a trend; it was a flat-out crash, a collapse of 20 percent — an implosion, where only 26.5 million viewers tuned in, compared to 33 million the year prior. What had been an incremental ratings drop, starting in 2015, turned into a debacle on Sunday.
Thankfully, the insecure Kimmel was not done making a fool of himself. After just making stuff up about Netflix manhandling his Oscar ratings, Kimmel bragged about winning more Twitter “likes” than Trump.
Kimmel told the brainwashed audience, “Since I was the host of the Oscars, I felt like it was incumbent on me to respond [to Trump]. So I tweeted to him … [and] wanted to point out that my tweet got more than twice as many ‘likes’ as his tweet.”
It’s about time that Kimmel just sit down and shut up when it comes to politics.
