President Donald Trump hit back at the Emmys on Tuesday after the awards show took several knocks at him during Sunday's ceremony. The ratings, although nothing spectacular, didn't dip to record levels, and were in fact slightly up.

Trump added, "Smartest people of them all are the 'DEPLORABLES.'" That's a reference to a remark Hillary Clinton made during last year's presidential campaign, when she said half of Trump's supporters belonged in a "basket of deplorables".
