For Donald Trump, the presidency has been one long reality TV show. There have been the firings, or people booted off Trump’s island, the suspense of whether or not the whole world would just end thanks to the president, and plenty of backroom drama and corruption. Instead of poll numbers, Trump tends to rate the health of his presidency in TV ratings.

To continue to do so, however, Trump is going to have to admit that he’s not as popular as he once was. For a small base, the former reality TV game show host is the same entertaining but highly dangerous mamas he always was, but fo a growing number of voters, the schtick is wearing thin.

That was proven during the Democratic and Republican National Conventions, where ratings for Joe Biden’s acceptance speech for the Democratic nomination topped Trump’s very long acceptance speech for the Republican nomination the following week. In fact, the entire Democratic convention outperformed the Republican convention in ratings, with only the first lady’s speech drawing much viewership at all.

Of course, Trump should probably thank his lucky stars for that. More people watching the Republican convention would mean more people watching Trump’s oldest son and his son’s girlfriend utterly embarrassing themselves with bizarre speeches, more views of the impeachment lawyer, criminal lawyer, and Russian investigation lawyer speeches (seriously, who else but Trump would have such a line-up?), and more views of Trump’s nonsense accusations about Joe Biden’s radicalism, his support of violent fringe groups, and his “well-known” corruption. It was a pot calling the kettle black show, and none of it was helpful to the president.

Twitter was in full support of the Lincoln Project’s efforts to boot Trump from office. Read some of their comments below:
