Trump Humiliated As Ratings For 60 Minutes Interview With Stormy Daniels Are Through The Roof

To Donald Trump, size matters. It matters so much that his then-White House press secretary lied about his inauguration crowd size, and even falsely claimed that it was the most viewed in history. So, expect a Twitter tirade after reports that Stormy Daniels interview produced the highest ratings for “60 Minutes” since 2008, delivering more than 23 million viewers on Sunday night, according to Nielsen ratings. The final ratings won’t be in until later on today, but preliminary ratings, known as “overnights,” showed the episode drawing more than twice as many viewers than a typical episode of the show, CNN reports.

The program is expected to rank as the highest-rated “60 Minutes” episode since Barack and Michelle Obama gave their first post-election interview in 2008.

Stormy Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford,  gave details in the CBS interview about her alleged sexual affair with former reality show star Donald Trump. In the segment, she said that in 2006, she asked Trump to pull down his pants so she could spank him with a magazine featuring his face on the cover. Trump allegedly agreed, pulled his pants down and got a couple of spanks from Daniels.

Daniels also said that she was threatened to stay quiet about the affair in 2011 when an unidentified man approached her in a Las Vegas parking lot after she had agreed to tell her version of the alleged affair to In Touch magazine.

“Leave Trump alone. Forget the story,” the man told her, then he allegedly looked at her infant daughter and said, “It’d be a shame if something happened to her mom.”

Daniels’ name was the No. 1 trending topic on Twitter in the U.S. on Sunday evening and today ’60 Minutes’ is trending.

While Trump has remained silent about the alleged affair, he tweeted about ‘fake news’ this morning, writing, “So much Fake News. Never been more voluminous or more inaccurate. But through it all, our country is doing great!”

Seriously, though, who taught him how to spell ‘voluminous’?
