President Donald Trump's twitter rant Monday against Sen. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., sparked a harsh response from his target and appears to reveal the president does watch CNN, despite his claims to the contrary, CNN reported.

Blumenthal appeared on CNN's "New Day" at about 7:45 a.m. ET in which he blasted Trump and defended FBI special counsel Robert Mueller's probe into Russian meddling into the 2016 election.

Just a few minutes later, apparently in reaction to watching the interview, Trump sent out his first of a series of tweets lashing out at the senator.

Although Trump said in February he does not watch CNN, the network's Chris Cilliza pointed out "This morning's timeline is proof positive" the president indeed does watch it.

"There has never been a president more obsessed with cable TV news – and the tone and tenor of the coverage of his White House – than this one," Cillizza wrote in his article. "And it's not even close.

"Trump watches the shows closely, always looking for supporters and detractors – fingers at the ready to call out hypocrites with a few taps on his phone. This is who he has been his whole life. It's who he is now. And it's who he will be even after he leaves the White House. Tigers don't change their stripes. And Donald Trump watches CNN."
