U.S. President Donald trump was suspected of excessive dependence on watching TV. This writes The New York Times.
As told the publication approached the American President, watching TV trump daily spends at least four hours, sometimes twice. He wakes up every morning around 05:30 in the morning and turns on the TV in the master bedroom of the White house.
“During the meetings a 60-inch screen mounted in the living room, can work without sound, but Mr. trump is watching the scrolling headlines. What he misses, he looks late on his, as he calls it, Super TiVo — modern system that allows you to record news programs on cable TV,” notes the NYT.
According to the publication, trump constantly shares his thoughts about what he saw with others and even personnel with which to associate, when asked to bring him lunch or diet coke.
In the words of Senator Lindsey Graham (Lindsey Graham), the passion of the President watching TV connected with his belief that the media “want to destroy”.
During the Asian tour, trump said that more deals with the study of documents than viewing TV. “I know they like to say — people who don’t know me, they like to say that I watch TV… But I don’t watch, mainly because of the documents. I read a lot of documents,” he said.
In early December, the ABC has temporarily suspended journalist Brian Ross, who made a mistake in the report on the ex-US presidential Advisor on national security Michael Flynn. Later, trump commented on the dismissal of a journalist. “Congratulations to ABC with the suspension of Ross for his horribly sloppy and false reporting about the anti-Russian witch hunt. Many TV networks and the “Newspapers” should be to do the same for their fake news!” — he wrote in Twitter.
In February this year, the press Secretary of the White house Sean Spicer has demanded an apology from the newspaper The New York Times for an article with the details of the early days of trump. In the text, in particular, mentioned that after the President is watching TV in a robe and marks of the negative articles. Spicer called this story fiction. Criticized the newspaper and the American leader.
