‘Morning Joe’ just got under Trump’s skin with an epic rant calling out his laziness


Joe Scarborough of Morning Joe appeared to get the president’s attention this morning with a segment in which he harshly criticized Trump over the recent leak of his schedule in which it was revealed that he does very little actual work in the West Wing, and spends much of his day engaged in so-called “executive time” which appears to be little more than a euphemism for watching Fox News and penning angry, racist tweets.

Last night, Trump insisted that he actually works more hours than almost any past president, as blatant and pathetic a lie as one can imagine. He went on to brag about his imagined accomplishments, which as usual involved him pretending things were a mess before he took office and claiming that he immediately righted the ship of state.

Scarborough decided not to let the absurd tweets go unanswered, and eviscerated Trump on his show this morning. The conservative pundit called Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney’s defense of “executive time” an “absolute joke” before tearing into the president himself. Scarborough pointed out that numerous administration officials have already revealed the truth about Trump’s work ethic.

“We’ have seen one account after another, one person working for Trump after another saying he often just hunkers down upstairs in the personal quarters. He spends a majority of his time watching cable news, tweeting, yelling, staring at TV sets like an old man in a retirement home instead of a President of the United States who is supposed to be working 24 hours a day,” said Scarborough.

Scarborough then seized on the retirement home bit, a fair comparison for a president who seems increasingly senile during his public speeches.


“I’m sure most older men in retirement homes live far more active lives than does Donald Trump, but for these people to come out and suggest — and for Donald Trump to suggest— he’s worked harder than most any president before him is just an absolute joke,” he went on. 

Scarborough ended the segment with an absolutely brutal observation, stating that historians will ultimately write that Donald Trump was “the laziest president ever to occupy the Oval Office.”

While Trump has claimed in the past that he doesn’t watch Morning Joe, he sent out a defensive tweet shortly after the segment aired. It was even more absurd than his previous tweets, because this time he claimed that he works harder than any other previous president before him did, a statement which is sure to draw a chuckle from anybody who has ever opened up a history book to a page bearing the name Abraham Lincoln or the names of any number of other presidential greats.
