Morning Joe Goes Off on ‘Laziest President’ Ever: Trump’s ‘Like an Old Man in a Retirement Home’


Morning Joe laughed at Donald Trump‘s expense on Monday as the president claims to be the hardest-working leader America has ever seen.

Over the weekend, Axios published a new set of Trump’s White House schedules, the contents of which support previous indications that the president gets to spend large portions of his day in unstructured “executive time.” As Morning Joe addressed the news and the White House’s attempts to defend itself, the panel started smirking while Mika Brzezinski called it “playtime” for Trump.

Here’s what Joe Scarborough had to say:

“What an absolute joke. We’ve seen one person after another saying he often just hunkers down upstairs in the personal quarters, he spends of majority of his time watching cable news, tweeting, yelling, staring at TV sets like an old man in a retirement home instead of a President of the United States who is supposed to be working 24 hours a day. I’m sure most older men in retirement homes live far more active lives than does he Donald but for these people to 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.”

Mike Barnacle went on to call Trump “a total snowflake” for complaining about the true nature of his work schedule being exposed. Scarborough topped off the segment, however, by declaring that history will say Trump was “the laziest president” to ever hold the office.

Minor side note, by the way, Trump is claiming once again that “no president ever worked harder than me.”
