Did anyone know that the Golden Globes were this past Sunday?
I had no idea and it seems many other Americans didn’t either.
But 31 million viewers did tune in for President Trump’s highly-anticipated CPAC speech.
President Trump’s speech at #CPAC2021 eclipsed 31 million live viewers on social media.

President Trump’s CPAC speech drew over 31 million views. Wow
Biden’s national address got a whopping 38k views w/ comments turned off
Guess which one is said to have gotten the most votes of any American in history.

Listen. After the chaos of Jan. 6th, not communicating to his base on twitter, and Trump being out of office for 6 weeks, 31 Million people still watched Trump's speech yesterday.
Unless someone else with Trump's gravitas comes along, he will be the 2024 nominee.

How many people tuned into Hollyweird’s Golden Globes?
A lowly 6.9 million viewers.
Nearly 5 times as many Americans chose President Trump’s speech over the Golden Globes.
And they say Biden was the most popular president ever?
That joke is still funny when you say it.
The pandemic-era Golden Globes sunk to 6.9 million viewers, down a whopping 64% from 2020 and only barely beating the year when a writer's strike forced NBC to show a news conference announcing the winners.https://t.co/FxNRl2HjVA

BREAKING: PRESIDENT TRUMP DESTROYS Golden Globe Awards in ratings last Sunday. Over 31 million+ live viewers chose to watch Trump's CPAC 2021 speech over the Golden Globes.
Trump also drew 31M viewers for his 2017 inauguration, meaning his CPAC speech was inauguration-level.

The New York Post commented on the pitiful Golden Globe performance:
Golden Globes viewership took a huge pandemic hit after its one-of-a-kind virtual ceremony on Sunday night.
It turns out, even though most viewers were home anyway, they decided not to watch the 2021 show, as Nielsen ratings recorded a paltry 6.9 million viewers, Deadline reported on Tuesday.
Viewership has gradually tanked for the ceremony. Last year’s awards show saw 18.3 million viewers, down 2% from 2019’s total viewership, according to Nielsen. Nothing has yet to top 2004, which had almost 27 million viewers.
In the key demo of adults aged 18 to 49, the 2021 show notched a 1.5 rating, a new all-time low; the 2020 show had a 4.7 rating in that demo.
The annual awards for TV and movies saw some highs and lows: Hosts Amy Poehler and Tina Fey managed to gel despite being on opposite coasts with some lol-worthy zingers and pointed commentary on the lack of diversity in the nominating body; “The Crown” stars had their reigning moments; “Ted Lasso” creator and actor Jason Sudeikis may or may not have been high.
But even a year into the virtual way of life the pandemic has brought, tech glitches marred the night’s biggest moments, including when Daniel Kaluuya almost couldn’t deliver his acceptance speech for playing Fred Hampton in the historical drama “Judas and the Black Messiah” due to some kind of sound issue.
100% FedUp shared these remarks:
Trump hit on a lot of topics Americans care about, but at the top of the list was election integrity. 62% of CPAC attendees agree the election integrity must be at the top of the list of items they believe is most important to fix.Compare Trump’s incredible reach with his CPAC speech to the newly elected “President” Biden who campaigned from his basement, yet was able to get 81 million votes in the November election (election integrity comes to mind). In his most recent address to American workers, a whopping 38K viewers tuned in. Comments have been turned off on all White House videos after Biden’s videos were inundated with mostly negative remarks.
