There Just Isn’t Enough “Executive Time” in the Day

From Politico, by Jack Shafer:

Trump has more free time in his daily schedule than a lazy student attending a hippie alternative high school. In a recent Politico article, Eliana Johnson and Daniel Lippman wrote of the days in which Trump allots to himself up to nine hours of “Executive Time,” in which he tweets, phones friends, watches TV and otherwise dawdles. Trump delights in the performative aspects of being president—conducting political rallies, signing bills in elaborate ceremonies, giving awards, presiding over his Cabinet in televised sessions, dreaming of military parades in downtown Washington, D.C. Reading white papers, enduring endless briefings, attending countless meetings and puzzling through policy options are not his idea of what the job is about. Popping off the cuff to reporters while drinking a Diet Coke in the Oval Office is a lot more like it.”
