After weeks' worth of leaked White House schedules revealed that President Donald Trump has spent 60% of the last three months having "executive time," Americans were chiding the President for remaining in the residence to tweet and watch television all day.

As a result, Trump allies are frantically praising the President's productivity, with White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders insisting that "the results speak for themselves."

Republican former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich took to Twitter to defend the President, citing the working habits of British Prime Minister during World War II, Winston Churchill.

Gingrich then promptly resorted to the talking points.

His assertions on Churchill weren't entirely accurate. The Prime Minister was reported to have slept from 3:00 am to 6:30 am, with a nap from 4:30 pm to 6:30 pm. Unlike Trump, he hardly used 60% of his time in unstructured solitude.

Political analyst Jeff Greenfield pointed this out.

What's more, many didn't appreciate the comparison of Trump to one of the greatest leaders of the 20th century.

They had a lot to say regarding the President's accomplishments as well.

They were quick to correct some of those assertions as well.

Gingrich couldn't get a break after using Churchill to defend the President. Not to mention, Trump himself resents comparisons to Churchill. Maybe Gingrich should have read up on his history first.
