Fox News is giddy about their ratings for last night's debate.
Donald Trump says it is all because of him.
The debate pulled in 24 million total viewers and 7.9 million in the key A25-54 demo according to Nielsen Media Research, making it the highest-rated non-sports cable telecast of all time in total viewers. Thursday’s event more than doubled the network’s previous high of 11.8 million total viewers, earned during coverage of the 2012 Presidential Election.
Trump tweeted out this message to Fox News:
Hate to sy he is right, but let's be honest, if Trump isn't in on that debate the numbers would not have been even half of that.
If Trump can win the GOP nomination while spitting in the face of Fox News, it will be a huge blow to Roger Ailes.
