Just 48 hours after the 69th annual Prime-time #Emmy awards took place, President #Donald Trump decided to hit back [VIDEO] at the show on #Twitter. As expected, the president continued with his trolling of Hollywood.

Trump on the Emmys

From the day Donald Trump announced he was running for president [VIDEO] back in June 2015, his feud with the majority of the liberal-leaning celebrities in Hollywood kicked off. Once Trump referred to illegal immigrants from Mexico as "rapists" and "murderers," Hollywood stars where quick to come to their defense, while bashing the former host of "The Apprentice" in the process. In the months that followed, Trump become the butt of the joke on late-night TV, as well as on several comedy shows.

The most memorable came in the form of Alec Baldwin playing a satirical version of Trump on "Saturday Night Live," which earned the veteran actor and Emmy Award last Sunday night. During the awards show, host Stephen Colbert kicked off the program with an opening monologue that spent a considerable amount of time poking fun at the president, which was capped off by a surprise appearance by former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer. Despite this, the ratings for the show were a disappointment, which Trump made sure to point out during a September 19 tweet.

Taking to his Twitter account on Tuesday night was Donald Trump, as the president took his mockery of Hollywood to another level.

"I was saddened to see how bad the ratings were on the Emmys last night - the worst ever," Trump tweeted with sarcasm. "Smartest people of them all are the 'DEPLORABLES,'" he continued, quoting the controversial term used by Hillary Clinton during the election to describe supporters of the commander in chief.

Donald Trump's remarks about the low ratings for the Emmys are correct, as a 8.2 overnight rating shows a number that is down 2.4 percent from last year. The drop makes the 2017 Emmy Awards the lowest rated in the history of the show, which many believe could be attributed to the number of conservatives avoiding the program as a political boycott in favor of the billionaire real estate mogul.

While Donald Trump took time to bash Hollywood and the ratings of the Emmy Awards, he has more important issues to worry about. Earlier in the day, Trump came under fire for a controversial speech at the United Nations General Assembly where he threatened a possible war with North Korea, while mocking leader Kim Jong-un as "Rocket Man."
