Well, Donald Trump is busy tweeting this Tuesday night, following his much-maligned speech at the United Nations.
Trump said he was “saddened” to see the Emmy’s low ratings in a tweet Tuesday night.
Trump tweeted, “I was saddened to see how bad the ratings were on the Emmys last night – the worst ever. Smartest people of them all are the “DEPLORABLES.”

Trump was the target of several jokes at the Emmy awards. Host Stephen Colbert took several jabs at the president during his opening monologue, saying he was “looking forward” to Trump’s tweets.
Celebrities also used their acceptance speeches to speak out against the president, including Donald Glover, who thanked Trump “for making black people No. 1 on the most oppressed list.”
Former White House press secretary Sean Spicer also appeared at the awards, mocking his own comments defending the crowd size at Trump’s inauguration.
Twitter was quick to respond:
You really think life is about ratings don't you? That's why you turned the White House into one horrible reality show!

You're an embarrassment.
You are uniquely unqualified to be president.
The world is laughing at you.#SAD
