Pelosi, Schumer outdraw Trump on his big night

tvDonald Trump drew a 28.1 rating and 45 share for his nationally-televised speech making the case for a border wall Tuesday night.

Which, good ratings, good enough for the second-best political speech of the night, to the tag team of Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer.

The Democratic response drew a 29.3 rating and 47 share.

Both of those numbers, incidentally, higher, than Trump’s.

So. Much. Winning.

Trump did out-draw Pelosi-Schumer on CBS, which we will no doubt be reminded of on Twitter in 3 … 2 … 1 …

The sound you hear, in the distance, is Mark Burnett, thinking out loud: “Shutdown Apprentice.”

Augusta Free Press content is available for free, as it has been since 2002, save for a disastrous one-month experiment at putting some content behind a pay wall back in 2009.

(We won’t ever try that again. Almost killed us!)

That said, it’s free to read, but it still costs us money to produce. The site is updated several times a day, every day, 365 days a year, 366 days on the leap year.

(Stuff still happens on Christmas Day, is what we’re saying there.)

AFP does well in drawing advertisers, but who couldn’t use an additional source of revenue?

From time to time, readers ask us how they can support us, and we usually say, keep reading.

Now we’re saying, you can drop us a few bucks, if you’re so inclined.
