Anderson Cooper Rips Donald Trump For Watching Too Much Cable News

"He watches me more on CNN probably than my mom watches me on CNN."

Donald Trump may dismiss CNN as “fake news,” but Anderson Cooper says the new president can’t get enough of the network.

“He watches CNN all the time, this is not in dispute at all,” the journalist said on Tuesday’s broadcast of “Late Night with Seth Meyers.”

“He has texted about people I am interviewing while I am interviewing them, he would do that during the campaign.”

TV sets in Trump’s offices are also usually tuned in to CNN, too, Cooper added.

After quipping that Trump “watches me on CNN probably more than my mom watches me on CNN,” Cooper questioned if Trump’s alleged TV viewing habits were appropriate.

“At a certain point you would think, like, there’s gotta be something more important going on for the president to be doing than flicking around the shows,” he told Meyers. “But, I don’t know.”
