CNN’s Kaitlan Collins explained that Trump is not a “good reader” and will most likely wait for media coverage to summarize the findings of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report.
Attorney General Bill Barr is expected to release Mueller’s full report on Thursday, according to the Justice Department. However, President Donald Trump is not expected to read the nearly 400-page report.
“According to reporting, he’s not a big reader. You would think this would be something that would interest him closely. No?” CNN’s Anderson Cooper said.
“It could be embarrassing for this president,” Collins said. “They know how he is and how he reacts to coverage. While he is not expected to read this report page-by-page, he will watch how it plays out in the media.”
“People close to the president have noted that he’s not a big reader,” she added. “They’re not expecting him to go through this line-by-line. Instead his legal team will do it and they will brief him on it. What we are learning is most White House officials say they want to read this report. Anderson, they said they might wait until they leave the White House to actually read it.”

‘Go look at President Trump’s Twitter’: Portland right-wing rally organizer claims ‘mission success’
The organizer of a far-right rally in Portland, Oregon claimed the event was a "success" after President Donald Trump attacked Portlandiers protesting the group.
"A confluence of protesters on opposite ends of the ideological spectrum merged on Portland’s waterfront Saturday in a tense but relatively uneventful face-off that brought national attention, including a tweet in the hours before the protest by President Trump decrying the city’s signature anti-fascist movement," the Oregonian reported Saturday.
When a similar right-wing rally in Charlottesville, Virginia killed Heather Heyer, Trump argued there were "fine people" on both sides of the "Unite the Right" rally.
Why was Jeffrey Epstein buying size 5 women’s panties — while in jail?
The Miami Herald has another bombshell report on Jeffrey Epstein, who died in a Manhattan jail while waiting to stand trial on federal sex crimes charges.
"A decade ago, during a brief stint in Palm Beach County Jail, convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein made an odd purchase at the facility’s store: two pairs of small women’s panties, size 5," the Herald reported Saturday night.
The newspaper noted, "the panties raise questions about why a childless male inmate, accused of sexually abusing girls as young as 14, would be allowed to buy female undergarments so small that they wouldn’t fit an average-sized adult woman."
