Trump went insane on Twitter Wednesday morning, but one thing he mentioned during the rant, was that he didn’t have time to watch television. However, according to a repost by MSNBC, that is pretty much all the president has done since news of his son’s email scandal broke.
Trump tweeted this Wednesday morning:
The W.H. is functioning perfectly, focused on HealthCare, Tax Cuts/Reform & many other things. I have very little time for watching T.V.

Senior NBC News editor, Brad Jaffy tweeted this in response to Trump’s ridiculousness:
9:09 a.m. on MSNBC: @PhilipRucker reports Trump has been watching a lot of TV news the last few days to take in scandal coverage

We found the tweet Jaffy was referring to from White House Bureau Chief at The Washington Post, Phillip Rucker:
White House officials tells us President Trump has been watching plenty of TV news this week, when he's had nothing on his public schedule https://t.co/FGAuaOWYRu
