Trump Dumps on Fox News, Falsely Claiming GOP Debate Had “Lowest Ratings Ever” — Real Number Was 12.8 Million


Donald Trump lies like a rug, and that’s not being nice to rugs (or the one on his head).

He just dumped on Fox News, falsely claiming the GOP debate on Wednesday night had perhaps the lowest ratings ever.

In fact he is wrong. The GOP debate fetched a total of 12.8 million viewers on Fox News and Fox Business.

It won the night and surprised quite a few people with its high numbers. Would the spectacle of Trump bloviating on it added to the numbers? Undoubtedly. But he chose not to participate and instead did an interview with Tucker Carlson on Twitter X.

That interview scored only

800,000 likes on 257 million views. The likes are the actual number of people who watched it all the way through– a fraction of the Fox number.
And Donald Trump weighs just 215 lbs. LOL.
