Jake Tapper Weighs In On Donald Trump's Mockery Of TV Ratings.


On Tuesday, former President Donald Trump indulged in one of his favorite pastimes: slamming the media, only to be savaged by CNN's Jake Tapper.

Trump issued a statement in which he delighted in the fact that cable news ratings are down because he is no longer president.

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

According to Deadline, ratings are down from the same period last year.

Although Fox News reigns supreme in terms of ratings, the website noted that all news networks have seen steep declines since President Joe Biden took office.

However, while Trump was attempting to blame the lower ratings on his comments, Tapper suggested that the former president reconsider his remarks.

If I had incited and inspired a deadly insurgency and attempted to destabilize American democracy, I wouldn't be bragging about how many viewers it had on any channel. But maybe that's just me, I'm a different breed of cat. https://t.co/6tE6pC3B74 — Jake Tapper (@jaketapper) June 29, 2021

“If I had incited and inspired a deadly insurgency and attempted to destabilize American democracy, I wouldn’t 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 notice that his own ratings weren't as low as Trump claimed.

Nonetheless, some Twitter users admitted that they weren't watching the news as much, which they saw as a positive.

We stopped watching the news because we no longer feel terrified every moment that something catastrophic is about to happen! We don't have to be chained to the news anymore because we have a bit more faith back. It's a GREAT thing! — Lil' Vampy/ queen of perpetual sadness (@Jennhatesyou) June 29, 2021

I'm sure the end of the pandemic lockdown and the election of a sane President have something to do with the drop in viewership. During lockdown, we were all glued to our favorite news station; now, we are free to move around the country and have a stable WH. — Carolina Blue (@greenpatchgrp) June 29, 2021

Imagine bragging that you had people who were so concerned about the world on a daily basis that they couldn't stop watching the news—John Johnson & Johnson (@JohnDellaporta) June 29, 2021
