By now most people know that President Donald Trump is an unstable, narcissistic, misogynistic, racist who has an insatiable thirst for attention that cable news happily obliges.
But according to a new report from The Washington Post, Trump’s obsession with cable news coverage crosses from obsessive to “bizarre to the point of alarming.”
He watches religiously in the morning — reportedly flipping between Fox News, Fox Business, CNBC, and MSNBC. Some Trump confidants reportedly told the Post that, despite claims to the contrary, Morning Joe is still on the President’s radar. Occasional Trump Tweets rebutting opinions of host Joe Scarborough would seem to confirm that he continues to monitor the program.
He’s also said to keep tabs on various shows, and would often watch broadcasts in a dining room close to the Oval Office. At night, he reportedly goes to his private residence where he binge watches primetime shows.
It’s said that he likes to “hate-watch” people like CNN’s Anderson Cooper. The anchor told NBC’s Seth Meyers in February that Trump “watches me on CNN probably more than my mom watches me.”
