Donald Trump Is Still Finishing Second To Barack Obama
It just kills the narcissist in the White House that he cannot come up to the numbers (or popularity) of President Obama. Although he denies it, Trump had a much smaller crowd attending his inauguration than Obama did -- and that extended to the TV audience watching those inaugurations.
Now we have the numbers for Trump's first speech to a joint session of Congress -- and once again he finished behind President Obama. Trump had a 27.8 overnight share of the TV audience, while Obama had a 33.4 share. That translates into 48 million viewers for Trump and 52.4 million for Obama.
It's just one more hit to Trump's massive ego.
