Donald Trump, besides being a man of abhorrent political views, is also a man of strong tastes. Sitting right next to Kristen Stewart on the long list of things Trump dislikes are the Emmy awards, which the presumptive Republican nominee has frequently badmouthed both on Twitter and in the press after The Apprentice was twice passed over in the Outstanding Reality-Competition Program category in favor of The Amazing Race. (Representative quote: "Lots of people agree that the Emmys were a joke — got bad ratings — no credibility!") Now, though, THR reports that Trump has been a voting member of the Television Academy this whole time. On the bright side, though, this news means that you can theoretically add every terrible Emmys snub to the list of bad things Trump is responsible for.
