Trump Has Spent Nearly 300 hours in “Executive Time” in 3 Months

Based on detailed schedules of Trump's daily routine obtained by Axios, we can say that Trump spends almost as much time watching TV and tweeting as many people spend doing their actual jobs.

We already knew that Trump spends the first half of each day in "Executive Time" where he eats, watches TV, and tweets from the private residence above the Oval Office, but Trump's full schedule puts that into perspective by showing how much more time he spends watching TV than doing literally anything else.

Since Nov. 7, the day after the midterm elections, Trump has spent around 297 hours in Executive Time, according to the 51 private schedules we've obtained.

For those same schedules, Trump has had about 77 hours scheduled for meetings that include policy planning, legislative strategy and video recordings.

Some days, Executive Time totally predominates. For instance, he had 1 hour of scheduled meetings on Jan. 18 (with acting chief of staff Mick Mulvaney and Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin) and 7 hours of Executive Time.

I have mixed feelings about this.

On one hand, Trump doesn't do shit.

On the other hand, Trump doesn't do shit -- and that's great!

How many more things could he ruin if he spent less time watching TV? We should all be careful what we wish for and wishing Trump would spend less time eating cheeseburgers in front of Fox News could be dangerous.

    HuffPo reported this morning that the White House is not happy with the Axios report.

    Sarah Huckabee Sanders contradicted herself within a couple of sentences by saying (a) all that Executive Time creates a “creative environment” for Donald Trump to be the most productive president in history in; and (b) Trump’s average day is filled to the brim with meetings and phone calls.

    That, presumably, was the best defense Sanders could mount. I’m not sure if that says more about Donald Trump or this White House.

      It never ceases to amaze me how often religious people sell their souls to the devil, so to speak. I wonder if SHS will look back on her time as the Mouth of Sauron with a sense of pride.

      • I actually despise SHS more than Trumpov because she knows full well she’s lying through her teeth and she claims to be a Christian. I hate hypocrites more than anything else. Trumpov is just delusional and sick. He’s obviously more dangerous but only by virtue of his position.

          Humpy Turtle Mitch is the one I need to see go down. In my opinion he’s done more to piss all over Congress than anyone and there is no hole deeper than the levels of hypocrisy that man will delve to. I’m actually debating whether or not to stop and literally piss on his grave the next time I drive through Kentucky.

          • Oh, there is definitely a special place in Hell for Turtle Man. He’s right in line next to SHS. You can piss on his grave for ALL of us. And pics or it didn’t happen. ūüėČ

    And this lazy sack of shit tells people on White House tours that Obama spent all his time watching basketball.

    He really puts the P in Pathetic, doesn’t he? Which reminds me, shouldn’t someone leak the pee tape soon?

      Heh. “Leak.”
