Trump drinks 12 Cokes and watches 8 hours of news everyday

In order to get a clearer picture of the US President's day, the publication interviewed 60 advisers, friends and members of Congress, and discovered that apparently he's a bit of a couch potato.

Anything the Donald misses, he catches up with on what he calls his "Super TiVO", which records cable news. Sometimes he does it while sitting up in bed, sometimes from the den next door in front of another television, and occasionally, in the Treaty Room just up the hall from his White House bedroom. The TV allows him to remain aware of the battleground.

Republican senator Lindsey Graham told the newspaper that Trump "believes passionately that the liberal left and the media are out to destroy him" while those close to Trump said he mutes the television but keeps an eye on the screen's rolling headline ticker during meetings. "The way he got here is fighting back and counter-punching".

So for Trump, continual access to the news is essential.

Trump watches hours of television each day for two primary reasons: 1) to see himself & affirm that he exists, and 2) because his powers of concentration are severely limited and tv doesn't require much focus.

The President's day starts at about 5.30am, when he wakes and watches Fox & Friends on Fox News, iPhone in hand and propped up on a pillow.

Actual comfort food comes in the form of his regular supply of Diet Coke, brought to him by aides at the touch of a button.

That means he's running on way more than the recommended daily intake of caffeine for an adult.

Antonio Brown will honor Ryan Shazier by wearing custom cleats vs. Ravens
Pane indicated that up to 15 Steelers will have the customized cleats, but it's unclear who will wear them on Sunday. Brown and the Steelers host the rival Baltimore Ravens tomorrow at 8:30 p.m.

Aides are so familiar with his routines, they use his morning TV tweets to gauge how he'll be on any day.

Other presidential favourites include Fox primetime shows hosted by Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham and Jeanine Pirro.

Sources say the President, nearing the end of his first year in office, still views himself more as a "maligned outsider engaged in a struggle to be taken seriously" rather than the leader of the free world.

The article was posted to the New York Times by Maggie Haberman, Glenn Thrush and Peter Baker, and it laid out some of President Trump's television habits.

Shortly afterward, the paper said, he accosted the White House press pool on Air Force one and began boasting of how little he watches TV.

Trump, who previously said that he didn't watch much television, enjoys morning show Fox and Friends and also CNN - the news outlet he has consistently damned for its "fake news".

"I know they like to say that. You know, fake reporters, fake sources". But I don't get to watch much television, primarily because of documents. Last month, he told reporters he is too busy "reading documents" to watch YV.
