Fox News dominates CNN, MSNBC during presidential address with 8 million viewers

And the deeper numbers indicate those tuning in are more likely to be opposed to Trump's request for $5.7 billion in funding for a border wall.

Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi said in her instant rebuttal speech that the real problem was Trump's "cruel and counter-productive policies" making the border ever more risky for vulnerable migrants, including young families.

One of many to talk about it was Jimmy Kimmel, who thought the president could've done a much better job of hamming up the so-called border crisis, which is already pretty hammy already.

Smith then asked Chris Wallace about whether the president's address had made the case for Trump's base.

For others, it's a no-brainer in the other direction: This particular president is so prone to falsehoods and fear-mongering that his speeches shouldn't be shown live. We can reopen the government and continue to work through disagreements about policy.

Hours after the lunch, Trump spoke to the nation from the Oval Office for the first time in his presidency.

Those that disagree with Trump were eager to see the Democratic response, which was broadcast on networks shortly after Trump's speech wrapped up. "The following 15 minutes, including analysis and the Pelosi-Schumer rebuttal, averaged 29.3 across those same networks, a bump of about 4 percent".
