On Monday, MSNBC’s host Nicolle Wallace compared President Donald Trump to a seven-year-old child after another schedule was leaked showing that the president spent the majority of his day in “unstructured executive time.”
“Donald Trump still managed to spend between three to eight hours a day in unstructured executive time,” she said. “Which we know now involves tweeting away in front of the television.”
“It doesn’t mean you’re working because you’re awake and watching Fox,” Wallace said.
Alexi McCammond, a reporter for Axios then explained that Trump even tweets during the times he is apparently working.
“[I was] tracking the tweets during times he’s supposedly meeting with his chief of staff or during intelligence briefings or policy times because it’s not infrequent,” she said.
“He’s retweeting Charlie Kirk while supposedly in a staff meeting, and tweeting about illegal immigration when he’s supposedly meeting with his chief of staff. During lunch, with Mike Pence he is tweeting about fake news. During policy time he is tweeting about other things,” McCammond said.
“If he were seven, it would be called screen time. As a mother of a seven-year-old, screen time is more structured than his executive time. He’s never doing what he says he’s doing,” Wallace said.
Former DNC senior advisor Doug Thornell said that if most Americans had a work ethic like Trump they would be fired.
“If most American workers kept a work schedule like this, they would be fired,” he said. “He thinks he has a no-show job where he can just show up and do the bare minimum such as, sit around in a lawn chair and fan himself like a ‘Soprano’ character while everybody else around him is working.”

‘There is no managing Donald Trump’: White House Republicans blasted for their myth of ‘adults in the room’
Republicans who thought they could manage Donald Trump were taken down in The New Yorker on Tuesday.
The Susan Glasser article was titled, "The spectacular failure of the Trump wranglers."
"On Tuesday, nearly seven hours into the marathon third day of public impeachment hearings, Kurt Volker tried to explain to the House Intelligence Committee what it was like to carry out the nearly impossible task of wrangling U.S. policy toward Ukraine during the Presidency of Donald Trump," Glasser wrote. "Volker, a veteran Republican diplomat who had been serving, since 2017, as Trump’s Special Representative to Ukraine, said that he realized last spring that he had a 'problem,' and that it was Trump himself.
BUSTED: Trump’s White House sent out anti-Vindman talking points — trashing their own staffer
President Donald Trump's war on his own employees escalated on Tuesday when the White House spread talking points designed to result in a coordinated attack on a decorated active-duty Army officer.
"The Trump White House has taken the extraordinary step of distributing talking points to allies of the president trashing one of its employees," The Daily Beast reported after obtaining a copy of the document.
"On Tuesday morning, White House aide Julia Hahn emailed Trump surrogates under the subject line, “Vindman’s Complaints Are Nothing More Than Policy Disagreements,” according to messages reviewed by The Daily Beast. Hahn, a Steve Bannon protege and one of his former allies in the White House, works on outreach and communications involving pro-Trump talking heads and other players in conservative media," The Beast reported.
Don Lemon notes the GOP panic after their own witnesses gave testimony harming Trump: ‘Worried much?’
CNN anchor Don Lemon explained how witnesses called by Republicans in the impeachment inquiry destoryed the defenses employed by President Donald Trump and his allies.
"Now, let's just be honest, the shakedown -- that's exactly what it is -- the shakedown is exposed, people," Lemon said.
"And the evidence comes from the Republican's own witnesses," he noted. "The former envoy to Ukraine, Kurt Volker -- who resigned just one day after the release of the whistleblower's report -- telling the president's defenders exactly what they did not want to hear."
"They called him apparently expecting him to say what he said in his closed-door testimony, that he saw no evidence of a quid pro quo, or let's call it for what it is again -- a shakedown," he continued. "Well, now he says he was wrong."
