Monday morning, President Trump responded to a lengthy New York Times story that made many claims about his daily habits:
Another false story, this time in the Failing @nytimes, that I watch 4-8 hours of television a day – Wrong! Also, I seldom, if ever, watch CNN or MSNBC, both of which I consider Fake News. I never watch Don Lemon, who I once called the “dumbest man on television!” Bad Reporting.

The journo who most recently was involved in the Trump “bombshell” that blew up in CNN’s face saw a refutation of something alleged in the NY Times story missing from Trump’s tweet:
No denial of 12 diet cokes a day https://t.co/oAOIk1Fi7y

This is the same guy who screwed up a huge report on Donald Trump Jr. & WikiLeaks.
Only reason he still has a job is because he works at CNN, who has no editorial standards. https://t.co/QioXoxRBh2

CNN has since turned Trump’s reported love of Diet Coke into a near constitutional crisis.
