Joe Scarborough Ranted That Donald Trump Spends Most of His Time 'Watching Cable News and Tweeting' and Trump Proved Him Right Almost Immediately

The weekend report on news site axios.com angered the White House, which did not deny the details of what appears to be a rather easy typical day at the office for the world's most powerful man.

And there it is.

MSNBC host Joe Scarborough on Monday torched President Donald Trump's work ethic after another round of private presidential schedules were leaked over the weekend.

Records released by Axios on Sunday show that Trump spent 50 percent of four days last week enjoying unstructured "Executive Time."


Trump insists that the executive time isn't spent relaxing, but Scarborough ridiculed Trump's chest-pounding as "an absolute joke," citing previous reports that also show Trump as having huge blocks of free time every morning.

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

Scarborough wasn't done comparing Trump, 72, to a listless retiree living in a home.

“I’m sure most older men in retirement homes live far more active lives than does Donald Trump,” Scarborough said. “But for these people that 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.”

Scarborough, a former GOP Congressman, did concede that Trump was number one at something.

“Historians will record, when this presidency is over, that Donald Trump was the laziest president ever to occupy the Oval Office,” Scarborough said, “And did less work than any other president to ever to occupy the Oval Office, full stop.”

Watch below:

Minutes later, Trump responded to Scarborough on Twitter.

"No president ever worked harder than me (cleaning up the mess I inherited)!" Trump whined.

It backfired spectacularly. Trump was clearly watching television.

We are not stupid.

Honestly, who does Trump think he is fooling?

Not these folks.

Trump has actually surpassed all of his predecessors in time spent not working, among other things.

As for that "mess" Trump inherited...

Remember when The Simpsons tried to warn us?

We remember.

Kamala Harris Brought In More Money In Her 'Opening Weekend' Than 'Twisters' Did—And Wow

Vice President Kamala Harris raised more than $81 million in 24 hours after officially launching her election campaign—an amount that surpasses even the opening weekend haul of the blockbuster movie Twisters.

Twisters, directed by Lee Isaac Chung, is a standalone sequel to 1996's Twister that's received generally positive reviews from critics since its release this past weekend. The movie made $80.5 million over its opening weekend—just shy of what Harris raised in the immediate aftermath since President Joe Biden dropped out of the race and endorsed her to be his successor.
