Obama: 'I Spend Most of My Time Watching ESPN in the Morning'

Friday, 12 Dec 2014 12:54 PM

President Barack Obama has made a shocking admission — he spends most of his mornings watching sports news on ESPN.

The commander in chief told Colin Cowherd on “The Herd” radio show that he finds the focus on politics on such channels as CNN, Fox News and MSNBC a little overwhelming, The Washington Free Beacon reported.

“Listen, I spend most of my time watching ESPN in the morning,” Obama said. “I get so much politics I don’t, you know, want to be inundated with a bunch of chatter about politics during the day.”

It was not clear whether Obama was sitting in front of the TV while he was supposedly running the country or whether ESPN was on in the background while he was actually working.

Two months ago, a report by the Government Accountability Institute, an investigative research organization, said the president went to only 42.1 percent of his intelligence meetings, known as the Presidential Daily Brief, or PDB

Obama was appearing on “The Herd” on Friday morning as well as on “American Idol” host Ryan Seacrest’s radio show to promote Obamacare, according to The Washington Examiner.

The president is hoping to encourage people to sign up with the health insurance exchanges by Dec. 15.
