Donald Trump’s Inauguration Draws 18% Fewer Viewers Than Barack Obama’s in 2009

Donald Trump’s inauguration TV ratings are in.

Television coverage of Donald Trump’s presidential inauguration reached an average total of 30.6 million viewers across the 12 broadcast and cable news networks — down about 18% down from the viewers who tuned in when Barack Obama was first inaugurated in 2009.

Barack’s first inauguration drew in 38 million people — way more than Donald Trump’s ceremony.

Because first-term inaugurations typically draw more viewers, Trump’s first (and hopefully ONLY) ceremony surpassed Obama’s 2013 oath of office, which saw an average of 20.6 million viewers. You know Donald couldn’t wait to point that out!

Why is he so obsessed with former President Obama? We don’t get it.
