Trump just threw a delusional hissy fit over his “executive time” being exposed

It’s no secret at this point that President Trump is the laziest man to ever hold the presidency. Even before his schedules were leaked by a disgruntled staffer and revealed that the president spends the majority of his days in “Executive Time” — the euphemism his staff uses for “tweeting and watching television,” the frequency in which the president tweets about the television he was watching, the lack of public appearances, and complete absence of any policy agenda beyond demanding money for his wall has made it clear to everyone that Trump has no interest in doing any actual governing.

But the revelation that he spends a staggering 60% of his time in the White House goofing off is extremely embarrassing, so while his staff conducts an internal witch-hunt for the leaker, the President took to Twitter to do some damage control.

In typical Trumpian fashion, the president insisted that in fact he was working Very Hard and had probably worked “more hours than almost any past president,” which is, of course, an absolutely delusional claim that should only be responded to with gales of laughter.

While there is a mix of truth and falsehood in his description of America’s problems, the idea that he’s “solved” any of them or done anything but made them much, much worse is equally delusional.

“There are seniors playing shuffleboard in Boca retirement communities who work more than the president of the United States right now” laughed MSNBC host Joe Scarborough, and he’s definitely not too far off the mark.

We are now faced with the absurd situation of watching the president lazily tweet about how he is lazy and does nothing but tweet, hot on the heels of other tweets about how he’s preparing to shut down the government again unless he gets his wall, mendaciously pretending he knows what black people think of the Virginia blackface scandals, and making jokes about the genocide of Native Americans in order to attack his political rivals.

Definitely working very long hours, this one.
