Biden’s vacation numbers are as high as his approval ratings indicate. He is on track to spend more time away from the White House than any of his predecessors — he has already spent almost 200 days away from the White House. If he maintains this pace, he will spend 553 days absent from the Oval Office during his term. He’s been gone the past four weekends in a row.
According to him, he is “constantly on the job, regardless of their location — whether they’re on a state visit overseas or just 100 miles from the White House for a quick trip to Wilmington.” They stated that when it became known that he was the president who had spent the most time on personal travel in his first year.
Nonetheless, when he is in Delaware, there’s no accountability for what he’s doing or who he’s seeing. They refuse to be transparent about whom he meets with. As a result, we only hear about it if he decides to tell us peasants anything. I’m not sure whether he even cares about his job even when he is in Washington.
Biden botched the “he’s always working” argument in his comments to reporters on Saturday. When asked whether he would be speaking with Chinese President Xi Jinping, Biden either didn’t get the memo about what he was supposed to say–or forgot about it.
Biden got irritable with the reporters and said he wouldn’t be chatting to them, since he was on vacation.
He doesn’t appear to be “constantly working.” He’s on vacation so much that it’s a wonder anyone bothers him! What kind of sense of entitlement is this? It’s our time, and he’s taking it away from us. We’re paying for Air Force One to transport him there, as well as the Secret Service and their equipment.
