Woke, Anti-Trump 2018 Emmy Awards Lowest Rated of All Time

With the 2018 Emmys sinking to its lowest ratings ever recorded, it is clear that fewer Americans than ever cared to see liberal Hollywood TV folks pat each other on the back over how anti-American, anti-Trump, and “woke” they are.

The early ratings for the 70th annual Emmy Awards are in, and according to The Wrap, the event’s TV ratings were lower than ever recorded.

Looks like people are sick and tired of Hollywood’s anti-American leftism:

Monday’s 70th Emmy Awards on NBC sunk 10 percent in early ratings from last year, settling for a new all-time low with a 7.4 household rating. That Emmys decline is not as bad as the ones for the Oscars and Grammys, which dropped 16 percent and 20 percent year over year, respectively.

Last night was NBC’s highest-rated Monday since late 2015. The network pretty much tripled the overnight rating of its closest competition, CBS, which posted a 2.5. NBC’s 7.4 topped the combined rating of the rest of the Big 4 broadcast nets combined by 23 percent.

With the so-called “entertainment” unleashed on Monday night, it is no wonder few real Americans cared at all about the exercise in self-pleasuring committed by the lefty actors on hand that night.

As Breitbart Hollywood noted, the show started with attacks on Rosanne Barr and “Nazis.”

During the opening monologue of the 70ths Emmy Awards, hosts Michael Che and Colin Jost of SNL fame went after Roseanne Barr and made predictable jokes about Nazis.
“I don’t know if you know this. The first Emmys were held back in 1949. Things were very different back then–gas was 17 cents a gallon, a new home cost $7,000, and we all agreed that Nazis were bad,” Colin Jost said.

The two hosts also went after Roseanne Barr, who was let go from ABC after sending a racist tweet.

‘Roseanne was cancelled by herself, but picked up by white nationalists,” Jost joked.

“She’s had a rough year,” Che responded.

“I heard Roseanne is actually moving to Israel. I mean, damn,” Che continued. “How messed up is your life when you have to go to the Middle East just to get peace of mind?”

And then there were all the anti-American leftists jumping to support national anthem protester and anti-cop activist Colin Kaepernick:

Actress Jennifer Lewis wore a casual Nike sweatshirt to the 2018 Emmy Awards on Monday night to “applaud” the sportswear brand for “supporting Colin Kaepernick.”
Nike most recently came under fire after releasing an ad campaign starring former NFL Kaepernick, who became famous for kneeling during the U.S. National Anthem in protest.

Jennifer Lewis said she wore the Nike sweatshirt in support of the brand for their ad campaign featuring Kaepernick, saying:

“I am wearing Nike to applaud them for supporting Colin Kaepernick and his protest against racial injustice and police brutality,” Lewis said.

“Thank you for leading the Resistance,” Lewis said in a message to Nike and Kaepernick. “We need more of corporate America to stand up also. These are not dark times, these are awakening times. We all have to wake up.

“Thank you Colin. Thank you for all that you do. Thank you for being brave. Thank you for being courageous. Thank you for taking a knee. Thank you.”

So, the whole night was a direct attack on everything American… and they wonder why the ratings cratered?
