Kimmel 'Hires' Federal Employees to Work on Show During Shutdown

Kimmel 'Hires' Federal Employees to Work on Show During Shutdown

Nearly twice as many people tuned into Fox News as they did other cable networks to watch President Donald Trump's address to the nation from the Oval Office on Tuesday.

Of course, the content of Trump's address-a clear, immigrationist restrictionist message-remained deeply divisive on an increasingly crucible issue in American life. The "Abolish ICE" movement has gained currency in numerous NY social circles she now represents in the House and on social media. "A fine speech that vastly exceeded the ridiculously low expectations created by the media", said Rich Lowry, editor of conservative mainstay National Review , which has been oft-critical of the president. We heard it for a month of Sundays, hundreds of times. "ABC, NBC, Fox, and CBS knew that their customers would not be happy if the President ate into time reserved for some of the most popular shows on television, including The Big Bang Theory and Bones", The Washington Post reported in 2014.

"In preliminary numbers, the quarter hour (9-9:15 p.m. ET) containing the president's speech drew a combined 28.1 household rating in metered markets on ABC, CBS, Fox, NBC, CNN, Fox News and NBC". Kimmel quipped. "That's either a hall or the White House morgue, I'm not sure". As a stalemate between Congress and the president continues, Trump hasconsidered using national emergency powers to declare a crisis at the border in order to build a wall without the approval of lawmakers.

Trump's narrative about the southern border "really is fiction. But that was a bipartisan announcement, and this is an overtly political move by the White House".

"The networks, I hope, yesterday struggled with the decision to put this on, because he consistently hasn't told the truth". "President Trump, you want to talk about crises?" said Sanders.

"Now that the television networks have made a decision to air the President's address, which if his past statements are any indication will be full of malice and misinformation, Democrats must immediately be given equal airtime", they wrote. No other basic cable network surpassed the 2 million average viewership plateau, with ESPN averaging 1.9 million primetime viewers to finish second. "Otherwise, they're just passing on his lies unfiltered", Meyers said.
