President Trump escalated his war of words with CNN and other “fake news” outlets on social media Monday, blasting the cable network for “another false story” and slamming anchor Don Lemon as the “dumbest man on television.”

The President called-out CNN this week over a “false” report in the New York Times that claims Trump spends roughly four to eight hours per day watching television; saying he “seldom” watches CNN or MSNBC which he considers “fake news.”

“People close to him estimate that Mr. Trump spends at least four hours a day, and sometimes as much as twice that, in front of a television, sometimes with the volume muted, marinating in the no-holds-barred wars of cable news and eager to fire back,” writes the Times.

“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,” he tweeted.
