A White House source has leaked nearly every day of President Trump's private schedule for the past three months.

Why it matters: This unusually voluminous leak gives us unprecedented visibility into how this president spends his days. The schedules, which cover nearly every working day since the midterms, show that Trump has spent around 60% of his scheduled time over the past 3 months in unstructured "Executive Time."
==================================================
A typical Trumpian day involves 70% of his time in 'Executive Time' watching cable TV & Tweeting as well as making phone calls. This shows a chaotic misuse of the Chief Executive's time & shows that Trump is more interested in campaigning than in governing.

He can watch TV as much as he wants as long as he is MAGA

When you have something more than "Executive Time" get back to us. Do you really think 400+ people (quite a few just simple "aides") are going to have access to any Presidents full itinerary? :roll:

Who is “us?” Can you cite your sources that dispute the reporting? Are the reports that out of line to what is on public display?

This is more evidence calling into serious question the fitness of Trump to hold our nations highest office. The 25th Amendment should be invoked and steps taken to remove Trump from office ASAP.

Surely people had already noticed that Trump doesn't do anything all day before Axios pointed it out? Live-tweeting FoxNews is not something busy people do.

Can you prove that those "executive time"'s that are listed Trump is sitting around watching TV or tweeting?

I'm not disputing the leak. What I'm disputing is whether simple aides would have access to a full itinerary or whether they get an edited version.

Even IF Trump is simply sitting around watching TV, which no one knows for sure here in the public life, what in the world about it is worthy of the 25th Amendment?

The schedule is proof that he is not carrying out his presidential duties and responsibilities.

For those that need it here is the 25th Amendment:

1: In case of the removal of the President from office or of his death or resignation, the Vice President shall become President.
2: Whenever there is a vacancy in the office of the Vice President, the President shall nominate a Vice President who shall take office upon confirmation by a majority vote of both Houses of Congress.
3: Whenever the President transmits to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives his written declaration that he is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office, and until he transmits to them a written declaration to the contrary, such powers and duties shall be discharged by the Vice President as Acting President.
4: Whenever the Vice President and a majority of either the principal officers of the executive departments or of such other body as Congress may by law provide, transmit to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives their written declaration that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office, the Vice President shall immediately assume the powers and duties of the office as Acting President.
Thereafter, when the President transmits to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives his written declaration that no inability exists, he shall resume the powers and duties of his office unless the Vice President and a majority of either the principal officers of the executive department or of such other body as Congress may by law provide, transmit within four days to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives their written declaration that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office. Thereupon Congress shall decide the issue, assembling within forty-eight hours for that purpose if not in session. If the Congress, within twenty-one days after receipt of the latter written declaration, or, if Congress is not in session, within twenty-one days after Congress is required to assemble, determines by two-thirds vote of both Houses that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office, the Vice President shall continue to discharge the same as Acting President; otherwise, the President shall resume the powers and duties of his office.

The "schedule" from ANONYMOUS SOURCES is proof that the TDS left hasn't learned its lesson yet , and continues to be led around by the nose, like crack addicts and their dealers, by the FAKE NEWS.


more media lies.jpg

Hey, I heard Trump, Jr, was calling Trump, Sr. before and after the Obama Adm./Hillary Campaign/Fusion GPS SETUP at the Trump Tower, too!! :lamo

And Trump MADE COHEN LIE TO CONGRESS about the Moscow "deal" that wasn't!! :lamo


And that some Catholic kids abused a Native American. :lamo


Etc., etc...

I have no idea what he is doing.......I know if I was POTUS, the Marine post outside of the Oval Office would become a 24/7 post.
Isn’t Trump on record as saying there is a finite amount of energy in the human body?

Same question to you: Where in the 25th Amendment does it state this?
25th amendment said:
Whenever the Vice President and a majority of either the principal officers of the executive departments or of such other body as Congress may by law provide, transmit to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives their written declaration that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office, the Vice President shall immediately assume the powers and duties of the office as Acting President
But, wait, you say, "Isn't it only if the president is incapacitated that the 25th can be used?" Well, not exactly.

See, it goes on to provide the president a means to contest his removal from office. Meaning the amendment clearly leaves open the door to be removed for insanity, incompetence, or whatever the Cabinet and/or Congress feel meets the bar.

section 4 said:
Thereafter, when the President transmits to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives his written declaration that no inability exists, he shall resume the powers and duties of his office unless the Vice President and a majority of either the principal officers of the executive department or of such other body as Congress may by law provide, transmit within four days to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives their written declaration that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office. Thereupon Congress shall decide the issue, assembling within forty-eight hours for that purpose if not in session. If the Congress, within twenty-one days after receipt of the latter written declaration, or, if Congress is not in session, within twenty-one days after Congress is required to assemble, determines by two-thirds vote of both Houses that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office, the Vice President shall continue to discharge the same as Acting President; otherwise, the President shall resume the powers and duties of his office.

It falls in line with other reports, so this is not surprising. It sounds like people around him either know he is unfit or enable him.

So you don't know. Well, neither do I, or anyone else out in the public sphere.

As for Trump saying....don't really care. :shrug: There are more important things to care about than what Trump thinks of the body's resources.

Versus the TDS'ers spending 70% of the time here at DP because no one else can put up with them.

If True, this demonstrates how incompetent and lazy he is, but not in the way that would invoke the 25th Amendment.
