Donald Trump used to spend upto 8 hours in watching television

Chris Pizzello  Invision  AP

People close to Trump told that Trump spends at least that much time in front of a TV each day, and sometimes spends as many as eight hours watching television.

Lemon's affinity for angering the President makes sense given the news' hosts unflinching criticism of Trump during last year's presidential campaign and throughout Trump's first year in office.

"That would get most Americans fired from their jobs".

Trump has previously stated he doesn't watch as much TV as people think he does.

The New York Times Times said its story, which describes the president's daily routine in detail, was based on interviews with 60 people, "including many who interact with President Trump every day".

But Mr Trump has taken issue with the Times' unflattering account, saying the story was "Wrong!" and denying that he watched CNN or MSNBC, which he decried as "Fake News". He is said to occasionally watch MSNBC's Morning Joe programme "because, friends suspect, it fires him up for the day". Trump wrote on Twitter. Trump has reportedly enforced a rule that prohibits anyone from touching the remote control-except for him and the technical support staff.

Anything the Donald misses, he catches up with on what he calls his "Super TiVO", which records cable news.

But sources said despite daily briefings, the president is reluctant to believe information unless it comes from his limited tight-knit "bubble" of trusted aides.

"Other aides bemoan his tenuous grasp of facts, jack-rabbit attention span and propensity for conspiracy theories", the article says. You're seeing it now because it's being reported on TV.

However the man himself denies watching hours of TV news having told reporters last month: "Believe it or not, even when I'm in Washington or NY, I do not watch much television". But I don't get to watch much television, primarily because of documents. "I'm reading documents. A lot".

Donald Trump's relationship with TV is unique.

The report also claims the president consumes a "dozen Diet Cokes he consumes each day".
