Trump's Pre-Super Bowl Interview Falls Far Short Of Obama's Ratings
The Donald will not be pleased to hear that, once again, he got beat in the ratings by President Obama.
According to Variety, President Trump's pre-Super Bowl interview with Bill O'Reilly drew 12.2 million viewers.
President Obama's first pre-Super Bowl interview, back in 2009 with NBC's Matt Lauer, garnered 21.9 million viewers. That's 9.7 million more than Trump.
In 2011, fresh off his re-election win, Obama's 2011 pre-game chat with Bill O'Reilly drew 17.3 million. That's still more than 5 million more than Trump.
Even during non-election years, Obama pulled better numbers than the Trumpster. In 2016, Obama’s interview drew 14.9 million; in 2015, 16.4 million; in 2014, 18 million.
Cue the Twitter rant in 3, 2, 1...
