Trump spends 4 to 8 hours per day watching TV

171 posts in this topic

President Couch Potato:

  

People close to Trump told The New York Times that Trump spends at least that much time in front of a TV each day, and sometimes spends as many as eight hours watching television.

The Times reports that Trump begins each day around 5:30 a.m. by turning on CNN before quickly flipping to Fox News's "Fox & Friends." He occasionally watches MSNBC's "Morning Joe" because it works him up, Trump's friends told the Times.

Trump's favorite programs include "Fox & Friends" as well as Fox News primetime shows from Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham and Jeanine Pirro. Trump sometimes "hate-watches" CNN host Don Lemon, according to the report.

Someone should tell him Celebrity Apprentice is on Hulu. We know how much he likes Arnold.

wow what a busy schedule, that and the 3 hours he spends wandering the halls of the WH muttering at the portraits, and the other 2 shirking in a corner trembling  and wimpering, how does he find the time and stamina for the public appearances?

Because he makes them all about him, and he has an insatiable appetite for talking about himself.

But if you pay attention to him, you will notice that what he says about other things, doesn't really go beyond television sound bites.

He doesn'tknow much about anything other than himself, and he doesn't care that he doesn't know. Its all about him.

It wouldn't be that big a deal if he weren't constantly watching stuff designed to make him even dumber than he already is

& He really doesn't know much about himself, considering he insisted (& which the press thruout the election campaign repeated) he built a company & that he's a bizman, deal maker, negotiator.

According to him, Trump casinos, Trump Shuttle, Trump U. were all rousing successes, altho by the time he sold Trump Shuttle for $100mil less than he paid for it, on Wall St. he was known merely as some clown prince of corporate raiders & had begun to take a dim view of media that dared report his failures after a dozen years of reporting his successes, which in the main were purchases (Plaza Hotel) that quickly or very soon turned sour.

His ignorance of & sloganeering on every topic resonate w/ a cadre of folks that believe not that ignorance is bliss but an inalienable right, bolstered by a sidearm or two & a variety of symbolic flags. All that conceals the sad fact that any Trump admin. policy (no domestic policy, same ol' ferrin policy) differs not at all from the 3 preceding prez admins. (which convinced major media that superficiality was the Am. dream): the travel ban, the Jerusalem proclamation are the application of his love of ostentation to national & world politics.

Surely, much of what he knows about himself, he learns from watching Fox News.

What do you think, mcorioles? About 8 Trump campaign workers communicated with Russia, when Trump told us no one did.

About 8 other women claim Moore came on to them.

Who is the real liar here, in your opinion?

There isn't enough proof of any of those things so I don't know.

Ive already said Moore isn't fit even if he's not guilty.

No "collusion" has been proven.

Muellers investigation is crumbling,biased agents,leaks....yet still nothing tangible? Why is that?

 

As far as the TV thing........I don't take unnamed sources seriously ESPECIALLY with today's media.

There is proof that Trump lied about his campaign's communication with Russia.

But you are okay with it.

You're not concerned that you are slipping into a moral sewer?

Or do you find it's warmth comforting?

It's pretty obvious that he sits in front of the TV extensively, given all his Twitter responses to shows.

Here's the really screwed up thing; he's not just watching TV, he's watching cable news channels. They spend little time actually doing journalism, and he watches them at the least journalistic times. It's not like he's watching Cavuto; he's watching Fox & Friends and Hannity. It's the dumbest possible thing on the dumbest possible format.

Are you expecting a reasoned response??

“People close to Trump” told the New York Times.... There was no reason to read any further.

The title is enough. You doesn't know about the symbiotic relationship between Trump and Fox News? He tweets what he watches and they report it as news.

Television made him. Its what he is.

The only thing that isn't surprising about it is that it isn't the Cartoon Network.

No.

Does everything I read, see and hear about and of him suggest that its true?

Absolutely.

The same goes for you too.

Don't forget, you guys are supposed to proud that he's an idiot. Not like those elitist eggheads.

You lefties have been chasing your tails for eighteen months in the search for collusion, and have come up with exactly zero, zilch, nada. It’s the very reason the narrative has now pivoted to obstruction of justice. Good luck with that one too. :)

Well, we know that on the campaign, Trump played Russia's 'useful idiot' in their effort to undermine our democratic process, by broadcasting and embellishing their leaks

He begged them to provide him with more infornation with which to undermine our democratic process.

Members of Trump's campaign communicated with Russians during the campaign while Americans were being told that the Russians were secretly trying to undermine our democratic process. They never disclosed it. In fact:

Trump lied about his campaign communucating with Russians throughout the campaign.

Trump fired the FBI director because he was investigating the campaign's involvement with Russia.

Trump wrote a lying alibi about his son's involvement with the Russians. 

Which begs the question, how much corruption are you willing to put up with?

He asked the FBI to go easy on Flynn when he knew Flynn had broken the law.

Apparently a lot. I'm betting you would prefer that  Muelier be fired and you dont have to hear about it anynp more, rather than face the facts.
