The 2018 Oscars are poised to be the least watched in history. Think about that.
President Trump wasn’t about to let the news slide. He took direct aim at Hollywood with one perfect tweet.
From Daily Wire:
On Tuesday, President Trump slapped Hollywood by pointing out the abysmal ratings for the Oscars – and noting that the only true star out there was him.
Lowest rated Oscars in HISTORY. Problem is, we don’t have Stars anymore – except your President (just kidding, of course)!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 6, 2018
The truth, of course, is that Trump is right. Trump is ratings magic. The media know it. Hollywood knows it. If you could book either Brad Pitt or Donald Trump on a morning show, you know who you’d pick. And part of that is Hollywood’s fault. Hollywood treats politicians as celebrities – Barack Obama being the most obvious example.
More from Deadline:
The good news did not carry over to ratings for the 90th Academy Awards, which (correctly) crowned The Shape of Water as Best Picture. Last night’t ceremony drew a 18.9 Live+Same Day rating in the metered market households. That was off 16% from last year’s 22.4 rating, which was a nine-year low. The 18.9 appears to be an all-time low for the Oscars, below the previous low ratings point for the Oscars, logged with the 2008 telecast (21.9), hosted by Jon Stewart, when No Country For Old Men won Best Picture.
Last year, those metered market results last year translated to 32.9 million viewers — also a nine-year low — and a 9.1 rating among adults 18-49. We will update with viewership and demo numbers when they become available later today.
Trump is right, even if he’s just kidding.
45 is the most famous man in the world (as is usually the case with the U.S. president), and Americans have tuned out Hollywood’s biggest entertainers because of their far left views.
When will the elitists get the message?
