One part of the Julie Pace interview for AP with Donald Trump seemed especially troubling. Did he actually compare his ratings with coverage of 9/11?

AP: And that’s one of the difficulties I think presidents have had is that you can have these personal relationships with people from the other party, but then it’s hard to actually change how people vote or change how people —

TRUMP: No I have, it’s interesting, I have, seem to get very high ratings. I definitely. You know Chris Wallace had 9.2 million people, it’s the highest in the history of the show. I have all the ratings for all those morning shows. When I go, they go double, triple. Chris Wallace, look back during the Army-Navy football game, I did his show that morning.

AP: I remember, right.

TRUMP: It had 9.2 million people. It’s the highest they’ve ever had. On any, on air, (CBS “Face the Nation” host John) Dickerson had 5.2 million people. It’s the highest for “Face the Nation” or as I call it, “Deface the Nation.” It’s the highest for “Deface the Nation” since the World Trade Center. Since the World Trade Center came down. It’s a tremendous advantage.  – AP Interview with Julie Pace

One thought on “Despicable

  1. Where are the super patriots who whose hair would be on fire if Obama said this? Where is America’s a-noun-and-a-verb-and-911 Mayor? He’s always on the lookout for any desecration of 911. Speaking of despicable. Where was the outcry from these same super patriots when Trump congratulated a vet who lost his leg for his purple heart. “tremendous” he said. Again, had Obama done this, the screams from that crowd would have made Dante blush. Party before country.
