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.”

White House ‘shamed into submission’: Senate finally passes Armenian genocide bill despite Trump’s objections
In a direct refutation of the repeated objections of the Trump administration this Thursday, the Senate unanimously passed a resolution recognizing the Armenian Genocide.
As USA Today points out, the historic move will likely complicate US-Turkey relations since it acknowledges that Turkey, then known as the Ottoman Empire, carried out the systematic killings of 1.5 million Armenians from 1915 to 1923.
‘It’s all distractions’: CNN panel obliterates GOP for totally refusing to discuss Trump’s conduct
A CNN panel on Thursday obliterated House Republicans for once again completely ignoring the substance of allegations against President Donald Trump and instead throwing out numerous distractions intended to deflect attention from the president's actions.
"It's been distractions about the Bidens, it's been distractions about conspiracy theories about Ukraine's involvement in the election," said CNN legal analyst Carrie Cordero. "Yesterday, it was distractions about FISA and FISA so-called abuse. It was distractions from Congressman Gohmert reading calls from 1943! It's been all distractions and they won't wrestle with the actual conduct."
Fox News’ Chris Wallace calls Trump out for promulgating ‘the most direct sustained assault on freedom of the press in our history’
Even though Fox News hosts like Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham, Tucker Carlson and Jeanine Pirro aggressively support President Donald Trump more often than not, he often takes to Twitter to complain when the right-wing cable news channel gives him a hard time. His main targets at Fox News include Judge Andrew Napolitano and Chris Wallace, both of whom have been highly critical of Trump at times. And when Wallace spoke at the Newseum in Washington, D.C. on Wednesday night, he didn’t hesitate to call out Trump’s bitterly anti-media rhetoric.
