Obama: 'I spend most of my time watching ESPN in the morning'

When it comes to bloviating talking heads, the leader of the free world prefers ESPN.

"I get so much politics I don't want to be inundated with a bunch of chatter about politics during the day," Obama said in a Friday interview with Colin Cowherd on ESPN Radio. The president also revealed that he sometimes turns on ESPN (with the sound off) when reading a "really fat briefing book," Business Insider reports.

"I spend most of my time watching ESPN in the morning," the president said, sharing that he's a big fan of SportsCenter, which he watches during a.m. workouts.

Because of his busy schedule, though, Obama said he can't usually sit down and watch full games, "except maybe the Super Bowl, or the NBA Finals, or the World Series."
