Most presidents spent their early hours reading briefings, and reading newspapers. Barack - not so much. Don't worry - terrorism will still be there when you are ready. OBAMA: 'I Spend Most Of My Time Watching ESPN In The Morning' http://www.businessinsider.com/obama-i-spend-most-of-my-time-watching-espn-in-the-morning-2014-12 President Barack Obama is apparently a devotee of ESPN. During a Friday morning interview with Colin Cowherd on ESPN Radio, Obama said he spent his mornings watching the sports channel. "I spend most of my time watching ESPN in the morning. I get so much politics I don't want to be inundated with a bunch of chatter about politics during the day," he said. Cowherd pressed Obama on how much free time he actually had to watch sports games while leading the country. The president said he enjoyed ESPN's "SportsCenter" but usually could not watch full games. "'SportsCenter' when I work out in the morning gives me a pretty good sense about what's going on. I can't sit down and watch an entire game except maybe the Super Bowl, or the NBA Finals, or the World Series," he replied.
