POTUS brings down fire on NYT for saying he watches too much TV, then he disses the ‘dumbest man on television!’

In case you didn’t know President Trump despises the mainstream media, he’s making his dissatisfaction loud and clear.

On Monday, Trump used his preferred platform — Twitter — to tear down a New York Times article that alleged the president’s work habits leave much to be desired.

According to the report, sources close to Trump claim he spends four to eight hours a day watching television, particularly cable news.

The article’s anonymous sources said the president tweets from bed, watches TV during working hours in his pajamas, and is late to his morning meetings.

In another claim, the president allegedly enjoys working himself into a rage by watching MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” and Fox News Channel’s “Fox & Friends.”

Trump struck back by questioning the Times’ credibility.


“Another false story, this time in the Failing @nytimes, that I watch 4-8 hours of television a day – Wrong!” The President wrote. “Also, I seldom, if ever, watch CNN or MSNBC, both of which I consider Fake News. I never watch Don Lemon, who I once called the ‘dumbest man on television!’ Bad Reporting.”

Trump has repeatedly dismissed claims that he watches a lot of television.


The president’s critique of the New York Times, CNN, and the mainstream media in general comes after recent mistakes in bombshell reports about the Trump White House.

Over the weekend, CNN mistakenly reported that Donald Trump, Jr. received an email offering a preview of documents allegedly stolen from the DNC before they were made public. The Washington Post later revealed the documents had been released publicly already.

In another notable case, Bloomberg falsely reported that Deutsche Bank had subpoenaed Trump’s bank records.

On Sunday, the president tweeted:


Many observers sided with his verbal assault on the mainstream media.
