SHEPARD SMITH (HOST): A journalist, who was in the White House the other day, described on another network the president watching a DVR recording of Fox & Friends hours after it ran, while others were around, just checking out -- Good for you. We like the ratings, we like for people to watch, it makes us money. Yay. But come on!

JONATHAN LAMIR: That is part of his routine. He likes to watch the morning shows either live or later in the day. He likes to sometimes shout back to the television if he sees something.

SMITH: Joe [Scarborough] and Mika [Brzezinski]. 

LAMIR: Well, yes.
