The report that Donald Trump’s recent schedule contains about 60% ‘Executive Time’ (i.e, no meetings with anyone) will come as no surprise to those who have realized that he is one of the laziest and most ignorant presidents in modern history. But there has been some curiosity as to what he does with all that time. Speculations have ranged from watching TV to watching TV. But a new report sheds some light on this issue.
President Donald Trump recently installed a new golf simulator at the White House, according to a report from the Washington Post.
Trump footed the bill for the $50,000 room-sized fixture, the Post reported, noting that it replaced a previous system installed by President Barack Obama that was less advanced. The simulator allows one to play virtual rounds of golf by hitting balls at a large screen. It’s unclear where the fixture is set up in the White House, but the Post notes it’s located somewhere in his personal quarters.
The installation seems coincident with the rise in ‘Executive Time’. So basically he is now playing golf all the time, probably with a TV on in the background.
What I find implausible in this story is that Trump, a notorious cheapskate , chiseler, and grifter, paid for the system himself and did not stick the government with the bill as a ‘security upgrade’.
