Former President Donald Trump warned Fox News boss Rupert Murdoch and Fox News board member Paul Ryan that if the network didn’t get behind his political campaign they would kill the golden goose.
Trump said about his record-breaking interview with Tucker Carlson that crushed the first GOP primary debate on Fox News in the ratings:
“The Interview has, at this moment, 260,000,000 Views, the biggest of all time, whereas the Fox News Debate had only 11,000,000 Viewers. End of story.
“If Fox News doesn’t get on board the greatest MOVEMENT of all time, MAGA, they will continue to Hemorrhage Viewers and Ratings—They will never come back—The beautiful Golden Goose will be forever gone!”
The interview has 189.2M views so far. To put that in the proper perspective, Super Bowl 57 between the Chiefs and Eagles had 115 Million viewers
The interview also beat Oprah and became the most-watched interview of all time. White House reporter Simon Ateba said:
@TuckerCarlson’s interview with @realDonaldTrump has garnered over 160 million views, making it the most-watched interview of all time.
“It surpasses the 1993 Michael Jackson and Oprah Winfrey interview, which previously held the title with an estimated 90 million viewers.”
