A brand new report has revealed that President Joe Biden has now spent more days at his personal properties or at Camp David, which is the presidential retreat, during his first months in office than any other commander-in-chief in recent history.
Which makes this one of his only real, true accomplishments since taking over in the White House. He must be so proud of his hard work.
According to a CNN analyst, Biden has spent a shocking total of 108 out of his first 276 days in the White House either taking vacations or working from one of two of his own Delaware homes, or from Camp David. This total includes partial days where the president has split time between the White House and the aforementioned properties.
All of these absences are coming about as his administration has faced a number of crises over the course of the year.
“A CNN analysis of Biden’s public schedule indicates the President has spent a significant amount of time away from the White House, particularly on weekends, since his January inauguration. Including this weekend’s trip to Delaware, Biden has taken 35 personal trips and spent all or part of 108 of his first 276 days in office at one of his Delaware homes or at Camp David in Maryland. That includes partial days, like Friday — when he spent the day at the White House and departed in the evening,” CNN said in its report.
“Sixty-nine of those 108 days away from Washington were spent at his home in Wilmington, spread over 23 visits; seven days at his Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, beach house over two visits; and 32 days at Camp David over 10 visits. …” the report continued.
“While most presidents have prioritized taking time away from 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, this is the most time a president has spent away from the White House on personal travel at this point in the presidency in recent history,” CNN stated.
The pace that President Biden is currently on places him far ahead of those that were set by his previous three predecessors, including former President Donald Trump, former President Barack Obama, and former President George W. Bush.
“At the same point in their respective presidencies, Trump spent 70 full or partial days outside of D.C., Obama had spent 40 days, and Bush had spent 84 days,” the Daily Wire said.
Biden’s frequent absences from the White House come as his administration has struggled to handle multiple crises in his first months leading the United States, such as surging illegal immigration, chaos in Afghanistan, supply chain disfunction, rising fuel costs, and COVID-19.
The White House defended Biden’s schedule, insisting that although the president has been absent from Washington, D.C., he is still working “constantly” for the United States.
“Presidents of the United States are 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 short trip to Wilmington,” White House spokesman Andrew Bates went on to tell left-leaning network CNN.
“Wherever he is, the President spends every day working to defeat the pandemic, to ensure our economy delivers for the middle class — not just those at the top — and to protect our national security. Also, as all Americans can agree, it’s important for leaders to avoid becoming ensconced in Washington, D.C.,” Bates continued.
In addition to his lengthy time away from the White House, Biden also has been noticeably absent from the media. Through September, Biden had done just 10 extended interviews with journalists since taking office, far behind the number of interviews done by Trump or Obama.
Well, the president’s handlers must be getting really tired from having to constantly come out after Biden conducts an interview or gives a speech and clean up the incoherent slop he espouses. That explains it, right?
