According to people inside the White House, Donald Trump spends time when he should be carrying out his job of being president planted in front of his television for hours a day watching Fox News.
Bloomberg Technology reported, “The president now spends hours some mornings watching Fox News, switching occasionally to CNBC for business headlines, along with a daily diet of newspapers and press clippings, said the official, who asked not to be identified discussing private information. On the evenings when he doesn’t have a dinner or briefing, Trump will spend most of his TV-viewing time watching Fox News shows hosted by Bill O’Reilly or Sean Hannity, the aide said.”
This is the most important job in the world, and Donald Trump is spending his time watching Fox News. It’s really is like America has elected it’s cranky, racist retired uncle to run the country.
It is amazing how much free time that a president has when he doesn’t bother reading intelligence briefings, studying, or holding important meetings. The Trump presidency can be summed up as the president wakes up, watches Fox News, holds a few PR gatherings disguised as listening sessions, meets with a few people, calls it a day usually around 5 PM, eats dinner, watches more Fox News, and angry tweets about what he saw on television either late at night or early in the morning.
Trump has transformed the once vibrant center of global power into a retirement community.
When a real emergency or crisis strikes, the odds are that President Trump will find out about it from Fox News.
