President Donald Trump suggested he would be spending Monday night doing “nothing” were he not at a campaign rally in Pennsylvania.
Trump has been harshly criticized for his poor work effort demonstrated by “executive time” watching Fox News and tweeting when he is not golfing.
Trump had traveled to the state for Republican state representative Fred Keller, who is facing Penn State professor Marc Friedenberg in a special election on Tuesday.
“The Republican candidate, somebody who is absolutely a winner, somebody anybody would take a chance (sic),” Trump said.
“You know normally — I can do other things tonight,” Trump claimed.
“I figured hey, it is a Monday, we have an election tomorrow, who the hell wants to sit around and do nothing on Monday night?” he asked.
Trump did not just worry about the Special Election, he also worried about winning Pennsylvania in 2020.
The Hickenlooper paradox: Can at least half the 2020 Democrats please quit right now?
OK, Democrats — you’ve had your fun. You grew up being told that everybody could run for president, and then everybody did. Except that this mad anthill scramble of presidential candidates, which resembles a bunch of kindergarteners descending on not enough cookies, really hasn’t been fun so far. All you’ve managed to do is put the fear of God — or the fear of the other guy, more like — into the voters, provoking widespread PTSD flashbacks to November 2016.

Conservative columnist Max Boot: ‘It’s reality that’s pushing for impeachment’
Max Boot, a conservative columnist for The Washington Post, argued on Sunday that "reality" is "pushing for impeachment."
On CNN's Reliable Sources program, host Brian Stelter asked if it is the media's fault that the possible impeachment of President Donald Trump has become a topic of discussion.
"Journalist are doing their jobs and reporting the facts," national security analyst Samantha Vinograd insisted. "I don’t think that putting the press in one basket is helpful. Trump does that, but we shouldn’t do that."
Boot said that attacking the media over impeachment amounts to "blaming the messenger."
