Ainsley Earhardt Says Donald Trump Works Hard Because He 'Watches Every Show'

The "Fox & Friends" co-host tries to describe Trump's alleged industriousness, and Twitter just can't.

Fox & Friends” co-host Ainsley Earhardt said Tuesday that Donald Trump’s ability to stay up late and watch copious amounts of TV news is actually evidence of his work ethic.

“They’ll criticize President Trump, but no one can argue, he is a worker,” she said, as seen in the clip below. “He doesn’t drink alcohol, he stays up late at night, he watches every show, he’s working.”

It’s certainly no secret that the outgoing president spends plenty of time watching TV, especially Fox News.

A 2017 report said Trump watched eight hours of TV a day, and this past April, a New York Times story indicated that he was bingeing even more during the early months of the pandemic. Around that time, the president would come in to the Oval Office “as late as noon” after a “morning marathon” of television, the newspaper noted.

“He has been up in the White House master bedroom as early as 5 a.m. watching Fox News, then CNN, with a dollop of MSNBC thrown in for rage viewing,” the Times article said. “By the end of the day, Mr. Trump turns back to his constant companion, television.”

Following Earhardt’s remarks this week, critics on Twitter didn’t quite see the connection between Trump’s voracious appetite for cable news and his alleged industriousness.
