Trump lashes out at Super Bowl, claims "Clinton's Inauguration got huger ratings"
NEW YORK – In response to a claim by the NFL that Sunday’s Super Bowl LI would be “one of the most-watched events of the year,” failed business tycoon and election loser Donald Trump sent out a series of perturbed tweets at 2:14 a.m. in the morning.
In them, the former GOP presidential candidate took aim at the NFL, threatening a libel lawsuit unless the League published an addendum to its press release touting the game's traditionally huge TV audience with the essential clarification that “though ratings for the Super Bowl have been historically high, in no world would they ever exceed a Trump event.”
Trump pointed out that the debates between him and President Hillary Clinton - who demolished Trump by an astonishing 3 million votes on election day - attracted "hundreds of millions of viewers."
Just before sunrise, Trump sent his seventeenth (and so far, final) tweet on the subject, informing the NFL that he has no problem paying “trillions of people to keep their televisions off on Sunday during the ‘big’ game,” saying Mexico would eventually foot the bill.
