Trump on Emmys snub: 'I should've gotten it'


The major takeaway of the final presidential debate? The Emmys are (allegedly) rigged!

Hillary Clinton took aim at Donald Trump Wednesday night for his repeated claim that the election is rigged, remarking that he says things are rigged when he’s losing.

“There was even a time when he didn’t get an Emmy for his TV program [“The Apprentice”] three years in a row, and he started tweeting the Emmys were rigged,” she quipped.

He interjected, “I should’ve gotten it.”

It was the interruption heard 'round the world – or at least on Twitter.

Comedian Julia Louis-Dreyfus tweeted, “The Emmys are NOT rigged. @VeepHBO @HillaryClinton @realDonaldTrump #debatenight.”

“Orange is the New Black” star Ruby Rose tweeted, “'This election is rigged.. unless I win' 'FBI is rigged' 'The court system is rigged' 'the Emmys are rigged' .. women are rigged.Sniff sniff.”

Twitter user Dom Knight said, “ISIS and three straight Emmys going to the Amazing Race. Two things that should never have been allowed to happen.”

This isn't the first time Trump has taken issue with the Emmys. He tweeted back in September 2012, "The Emmys are all politics, that's why, despite nominations, The Apprentice never won -- even though it should have many times over."
