CNN’s Disastrous Trump Town Hall Earns Just 3 Million Viewers

You’d really have to hate yourself to sit through two hours of this sociopathic rapist spewing the same insults and lies he’s been barfing up for the last seven years, and while ratings-starved CNN will do anything to attract viewers, the Trump “town hall” bombed big time, thankfully. I didn’t watch, and neither did you or pretty much anyone else in America. Overall, it still beat the other cable news networks for the night, but that isn’t saying much. Via Deadline:

CNN’s town hall with Donald Trump beat the cable news competition, as expected, with an average of 3.12 million viewers, according to early Nielsen numbers.

Fox News averaged 1.41 million viewers in the 8 p.m. to 9:15 p.m. ET time frame, while MSNBC posted 1.37 million.

In the 25-54 demo, CNN averaged 703,028, while MSNBC posted 154,991 and Fox News averaged 125,266.

On Fox News, the town hall competed against Fox News Tonight, hosted by Kayleigh McEnany this week, and the first part of Hannity. On MSNBC, the town hall’s competition was All in with Chris Hayes, with Rachel Maddow as his guest, and the first part of Alex Wagner Tonight.

Here below are some “highlights,” if you care. I’m actually surprised Trump and his cult members in the audience didn’t try to gangrape Kaitlan Collins.
