Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Monday, January 08, 2018

[Donald] Trump is starting his official day much later than he did in the early days of his presidency, often around 11 am, and holding far fewer meetings, according to copies of his private schedule shown to Axios. This is largely to meet Trump's demands for more "Executive Time," which almost always means TV and Twitter time alone in the residence. His real schedule -- not the one released to the media and the public, but his real schedule ... says Trump has "Executive Time" in the Oval Office every day from 8 am to 11 am, but the reality is he spends that time in his residence, watching TV, making phone calls and tweeting. Trump comes down for his first meeting of the day, which is often an intelligence briefing, at 11 am.

Take these random examples from this week's real schedule:

On Tuesday, Trump has his first meeting of the day with Chief of Staff John Kelly at 11 am.

He then has "Executive Time" for an hour followed by an hour lunch in the private dining room.

Then it's another 1 hour 15 minutes of "Executive Time" followed by a 45 minute meeting with National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster.

Then another 15 minutes of "Executive Time" before Trump takes his last meeting of the day -- a 3:45 pm meeting with the head of Presidential Personnel Johnny DeStefano -- before ending his official day at 4:15 pm.

Other days are fairly similar, unless the president is traveling, in which case the days run longer. On Wednesday this week, for example, the president meets at 11 am for his intelligence briefing, then has "Executive Time" until a 2 pm meeting with the Norwegian Prime Minister. His last official duty: a video recording with Hope Hicks at 4 pm.

On Thursday, the president has an especially light schedule: "Policy Time" at 11 am, then "Executive Time" at 12pm, then lunch for an hour, then more "Executive Time" from 1:30 pm.

Hitler wasn't near this bad.

It's funny having to defend the reputation of Hitler against Donald Trump.

Executive time should be called recess or nappy time

He may as well be in a rest home.

One thing we can vouch for ~ he's overpaid.

I heard Trump donates his salary to charity. It's called the Trump for Trump Foundation administered by Donald Trump Jr. ~ or some such thing.

That's what usually passes for his charity giving.

I honestly didn't think reducing it was possible!

Trump is so low energy, if he raced a pregnant woman in the 50-yard dash he'd come in third.

The less he works, the more America wins.

Over thinking.

Just a fat POS.

Didn't semi-senile Reagan insist on working 9-5 and only sleeping after 9 PM?

If so Trump isn't just demented he's a pathetic wimp.

Definitely sounds like the lifestyle of a "successful businessman".

Hey righties, it's spelled H.A.D.

Those 10-hr work weeks are catching up to the ol' boy.

With that grueling schedule, no wonder he needs to golf 3 times as much as Obama.

I was right.

Reagan did work longer.

He also was more healthy.

By "Piss liberals off" you mean screw the country and destroy its future? Yeah, damn those liberals for giving a damn about their country, right? How silly! We need more tax cuts for Wall Street!

Give the guy a break. You would be tired too if you played golf three times each week...

So he considers a 3 hour workday "hard work".

I'd like to see him try to make it through a 12 hour shift at the foundry like I did for 3 months between contracts as a network engineer just 5 years ago. The snowflake wouldn't last 10 minutes

"By "Piss liberals off" you mean screw the country and destroy its future? Yeah, damn those liberals for giving a damn about their country, right? How silly! We need more tax cuts for Wall Street!"

Trump could set all of America on fire on his remaining supporters would chortle with glee at the sight of liberals suffering even as their own children burned.

Interesting ideology. So Republicans are just doing everything they can to "piss off the liberals"?

You do realize that another election is coming up fast?

So If the Dems win you are ok with them doing everything they can just to "piss off conservatives" then?

Good to know.

You see Democrats goal is to make the country better for everyone and pissing off republicans is just a side effect.

Republicans goal is to piss off democrats and they are okay with burning down the whole country to do it.

Is that difference too subtle for you?

Federalist:
I get a laugh out of you failing in your pathetic attempts at deflection.
