Just State the Truth, WaPo. We All Know It, By Now.

Trump either can't really read or he doesn't like reading anything that doesn't have his name in every other sentence.
For much of the past year, President* Trump has declined to participate in a practice followed by the past seven of his predecessors: He rarely if ever reads the President’s Daily Brief, a document that lays out the most pressing information collected by U.S. intelligence agencies from hot spots around the world.

Trump has opted to rely on an oral briefing of select intelligence issues in the Oval Office rather than getting the full written document delivered to review separately each day, according to three people familiar with his briefings.
You never hear of Trump reading anything, not even the chryon that is scrolling across the bottom of Fox News.

In comparison, George W. Bush was an avid reader.

When they brought Nunes's three and a half page memo for him to read, they left him alone with it for "several hours" and he still didn't seem to know what it really said. Now that could very well have been a political tactic, the lying about its contents, but you know, I read that memo, and I can't think of anything, political or otherwise, that would have taken me several hours to figure out about it.
