Donald Trump mocks ratings of politically charged 2017 Emmy Awards

"The Emmys weren't last night from when he tweeted it, they were Sunday", Colbert continued.

"Smartest people of them all are the "DEPLORABLES", Trump said, referencing a term Hillary Clinton used to describe some of Trump's supporters during the contentious 2016 election".

The President had earlier delivered a speech at the United Nations in NY in which he stated that the USA would "totally destroy" North Korea if "forced to defend itself or its allies".

"I was saddened to see how bad the ratings were on the Emmys last night-the worst ever", he tweeted, probably not saddened in the least.

"And we all know the Emmys mean a lot to Donald Trump", Colbert said in his monologue.

Trump has frequently bashed the Emmys, particularly that his "Apprentice" never won despite eight nominations. The first inaccuracy is that the awards ceremony did not take place on Monday as Trump suggested in his tweet but actually the night before. Why didn't you give him an Emmy? In a tweet from 2013, Trump cited political bias for his lack of Emmy wins.

Trump, South Korea's Moon to meet amid tensions over North Korea
Trump has complained about the US trade deficit with South Korea, but has so far been persuaded by his top advisers not to terminate a U.S.

Stephen Colbert's prediction of a Twitter reaction from the President was accurate, if not premature.

Sometimes you've got to take your victories where you can.

In one of the more talked-about moments of the night, Trump's former communications director, Sean Spicer, made a surprise cameo appearance, lampooning his now-famous assertion that Trump's inauguration crowd was the biggest ever, despite photographic evidence to the contrary.

It turned out that Spicer was wrong on both occasions. In fact, the 11.4 million viewers for Sunday's Emmy broadcast was slightly more than last year's 11.3 million.

"I suppose I should say, at long last, Mr. President, here is your Emmy", Baldwin said.
