Today we learn that Fox News’ is no longer covering Prznint Stupid’s Klan rallies live. The ratings dropped, and so they’ve decided to return to regular programming of idiots babbling and eating paste.
A special event isn’t special when it happens so frequently, you get something like the Soup of the Day, which you know is essentially last night’s leftover Chili Surprise.
So the Republicans free nightly commercial to their base just got cancelled! Will they pony-up and buy ads? Let’s explore!
Tiger Beat on the Potomac (Thanks Charlie) has a story up that will make a certain mango-hued shitgibbon fling poop: Trump, no longer ratings gold, loses his prime-time spot on Fox News
“President Donald Trump loves to brag about ratings, but he’s not getting them anymore… During three Trump rallies last week, Fox News showed clips and highlights from his speeches but stuck largely with its normal weekday prime-time programming. On Saturday, when “Fox Report Weekend” and “Justice with Judge Jeanine” would ordinarily air, the network showed Trump’s speech from Topeka, Kan., in full. But on Tuesday, a rally in Council Bluffs, Iowa, was particularly hard to find — it was not aired live on any major network, and even C-SPAN cut away for other news. And on Wednesday night, as Trump took the stage in Erie, Pa., at 7 p.m., Fox News stuck with its coverage of Hurricane Michael.
“…The loss of national coverage is equally, if not more, concerning to the candidates on whose behalf Trump is traveling the country.
“It exposes us to a national audience that we normally don’t get to,” a Senate Republican campaign staffer said of the coverage of Trump rallies. “We tend to see lots of new sign-ups and small-dollar donations. There’s obviously folks streaming [rallies] online, but being able to be onstage with the president in front of a prime-time audience is huge for a campaign trying to reach conservatives across the country who will open up their wallets.”
So PRznint Stupid’s ratings are slipping, just like his sanity, and with only a few weeks before the 2018 Pie Fight, so his seekrit plan to get Possum Hollar riled up and to the polls just got more complicated, and they are losing donations, too.
PS – Waiting for ratings machine Comrade Stupid to tell us that this is FAKE NEWS!!1!! from Fox. Heh.
