While the voters of America dearly hope that the president we choose will take our nation and their office to new heights, nobody ever expected that “laziness” was going to be one of the categories in which history was made.
But President Donald Trump has done just that. A stunning report from the Washington Post indicates that Trump paid $50,000 of his own money to have a room-sized golf simulator built “during the past few weeks” in his personal White House quarters, so likely during the government shutdown when he wasn’t able to fly to his golf club in Florida for the real thing.
The news will intensify criticism of the President over his disgraceful laziness, as all signs point to the president seemingly preferring to treat the most powerful job in the world as an endless vacation punctuated occasionally by rambling at hate rallies or signing bills that he hasn’t read.

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.
The president has already played outdoor golf a staggering 139 times so far in his presidency, and the news that he has discovered a way to play golf without dealing with the public backlash and the ceaseless eye of the media will doubtlessly provoke a new storm of frustration and anger by a nation already at its wits end with the president’s appalling policy agenda and the cruelty with which he carries it out.
