Trump Binge-Watched Fox News All Night, Woke Up to Watch More Fox

5:03 P.M.
By Jonathan Chait

At his press conference today, clearly upset by the devastating comments made about him by himself and reported to Bob Woodward, President Trump told reporters that William Barr is going to produce evidence of crimes against him by his various Deep State enemies. Grasping for a basis for his claims — he is not supposed to have inside information about a Justice Department probe — he cited the many shows he watches, all of which of course feature slavishly pro-Trump hosts feeding his own conspiratorial worldview.

“I watched Liz McDonald,” he said, “She’s fantastic. I watched Fox Business. I watched Lou Dobbs last night, Sean Hannity last night, Tucker last night, Laura. I watched Fox & Friends in the morning.”

What Trump seemed to forget, in the midst of using these shows as proof that the Deep State was going to be locked up, is that Trump has also claimed he doesn’t watch much television.

“Believe it or not, even when I’m in Washington or New York, I do not watch much television,” Trump scolded reporters aboard Air Force One in 2017. “People that don’t know me, they like to say I watch television — people with fake sources. You know, fake reporters, fake sources. But I don’t get to watch much television. Primarily because of documents. I’m reading documents. A lot. I actually read much more — I read you people much more than I watch television.”

1. Sucking deeply of the glass teat.

If he did read more than watched, he might be slightly less looney.

2. No wonder why Trump's as stupidly misinformed

as he is with celebrity talkshow personalities staffing his unofficial TV Cabinet.

3. He's deeply depressed.

He’s doubling-up on his daily dosage of sycophantic adoration.

4. Yet he always uses the excuse "I don't have time,

I am too busy for that". All he does is golf, tweet and watch TV.
