President Donald Trump early Sunday touted television ratings for his inauguration, saying 11 million more people tuned in compared to four years ago.

“Wow, television ratings just out: 31 million people watched the Inauguration, 11 million more than the very good ratings from 4 years ago!" he tweeted.

According to Nielsen data examined by Bloomberg, Trump’s ratings fell below those for the first inaugurations of former Presidents Ronald Reagan and Barack Obama.

Why is Trump wasting his precious time on this? I understand why he would want to check the ratings for his own reasons, but the tweet above seems way over–the–top to me.

Trump has more important things to be concerned about than TV ratings. What makes it worse is the fact that he's bragging about it.

Is it just me or does this make the United States look bad? I realize George W. Bush set a precedent in that area that probably no POTUS could ever reach, but Trump almost seems to be trying to get there.

Hardly takes much time to tweet.
It does support Spicer's comments yesterday if the viewing figures are true. 11m more viewers than Obama is a lot.

As for the US looking bad, it already does and has for years. Thousands cheering a vile potty mouthed hag like Madonna also does not do a whole lot for the image of Americans.

He has to break the 40000 tweets milestone somehow.

One of the first things Trump has to do is establish his credentials as a popular elected president.
He has to show the media, who hate him are liars
He doesn't need the media, I bet every tweet is checked by pr

Because even here in Germany, newspaper mock him for having not enough people at the inauguration, when this could be far from the truth. You should read what´s on the newspapers here. On change.org, some idiots made a petition towards Obama not letting Trump get the "trigger button".

Crybabies going to be crybabies.

Because he's an egomaniac.

What he failed to comprehend is that people watched because they wanted to see what outrageous shenanigans he would get up to.
Not because they chose to celebrate with him.

Yesterday's crowd from coast to coast and around the world gives you an indication of what Hillary's inauguration would have been like.
If Russia hadnt purchased our election that is.

Yesterday's marches and demonstrations should indicate to trump just what his actual popularity and ratings are.
Low low low

And four years ago Obama's second election into office the country knew they were safe and that Obama wasn't interested in his ratings on tv but his ratings with the American people and his relationship with the world.
You know , the important stuff.

We are so phuqueted with trump.
I'm kind of glad I didn't get grandkids.
I'm afraid for my own kids who are adults and out on their own.

I knew a kid like that.
Once I told him a story that happened to me that was kind of cool and the very next day I heard him tell my story to another kid but this time it was about him. Lol.
Pathetic pathological liar.
We need to have trumps head examined because that man is

I'm sure it took you longer to create the thread than he spent Tweeting about it so...who's wasting their time again?

It really didn't look that busy as much as I saw, and if it wasn't, what would you have papers do, say it was bunged?
