President Donald Trump was furious after Axios last week published three months of his schedules that had been leaked, exposing him as possibly the laziest and least-engaged president in American history. Those schedules revealed he spends the majority of his day in “executive time,” a made-up term by the Trump White House that means tweeting, watching TV, and talking on the phone to friends.
The White House has launched an investigation to determine who leaked the schedules, but on Sunday Axios published four more days of leaked schedules, revealing Trump “spent 50% of the four days last week in non-structured ‘Executive Time.'”
Outraged, Trump took to Twitter Monday morning to gaslight America.
“No president ever worked harder than me (cleaning up the mess I inherited)!” Trump lashed out.
No president ever worked harder than me (cleaning up the mess I inherited)!

Many responded in outrage over his lies:
Work harder. That’s funny. More executive time than any other President. Mess you inherited my ass pic.twitter.com/bOHUm0STyk

Do you really think Americans have forgotten what President @BarackObama dealt with in 2008?
You have no idea what it’s like to clean up a mess. You took over in a period of low unemployment, a rising stock market, and an improving national debt.
Stop your stupid whining.

Obama inherited a devastating financial crisis and 180K troops in Iraq and Afghanistan. Trump inherited a growing economy, the longest stretch of consecutive job growth, and 15K troops in Iraq and Afghanistan. https://t.co/scXuyuZOmW

You are a gravid wretch presently cable flipping news and pity-tweeting. During the day you'll expend more energy doing your exotic lemur-fur wig than governing. You'll end your day shoving a brace of Filet O'Fish, extra sauce, down your lie hole and watching 6 more hours of TV. https://t.co/21u8vsnhNs
