White House officials: Trump works so hard he often misses lunch.




President Trump’s schedule is so packed amid the coronavirus crisis that he sometimes skips lunch, his aides told The Post — refuting a report that the commander-in-chief spends his days obsessing over TV coverage and eating fries.

White House staffers said the president works around the clock and can make five dozen work-related calls a day during the pandemic.

“I can tell you that the biggest concern I have as a new chief of staff is making sure he gets some time to get a quick bite to eat,” White House chief of staff Mark Meadows told The Post.
...
A different White House official said that Trump, some days, doesn’t eat lunch.

“There are times when lunch isn’t even a thought,” the official said. “A lot of time there’s either no time for lunch or there is 10 minutes for lunch.”
...
“I get phone calls from him early in the morning and at the end of the day,” said Peter Navarro, director of the White House Office of Trade and Manufacturing Policy.

“I think I work hard. I put in probably 12 hour days seven days a week and he runs circles around all of us,” Navarro said. “He never seems to tire. So this idea that he’s not working hard is just so absurd. Note to the New York Times: spending time in the morning reading all of the material that’s given to him by his staff secretary, as well as virtually all of the newspapers, that’s work. That’s not kicking back with a croissant.”

28. Often misses lunch. LMAO

So, that's the talking point this week.... trump works hard!

trump to aides: "Get out there right now and tell reporters I work hard."


The problem with this "misses lunch" message? Well, nobody who takes a look at him will believe he misses many at all, if any.

4. Your emoji is perfect!

I had the same response. That this issue even needs to be addressed tells you that Navarro and the lunatics in the White House are all LYING! The reason he "skips" lunch is because he eats all morning in the residence watching TV and tweeting. To insinuate that he does any work AT ALL is absurd. There are too many stories out there about how lazy he is and how he wants the comic book version of the PDB.

6. I guess the commercials don't overlap between the different news channels

Poor guy, if they all had their commercials at the same time, he’d have a chance to get up and get a snack.

17. Tell me another one!

I was born yesterday.

Gee. Sitting around eating hamberders and KFC, washing down with Diet Coke, snorting some Adderall and watching TV all day is now considered WORK?

Where can I apply for that kind of job?

The reason he misses lunch is that he eats all day and so, there are no set periods for him to stuff his undulating face sphincter. It takes a lot to maintain that ode to lipids of a body.

25. I keep hearing those lyrics from The Wizard of Oz...

when the citizens of the Emerald City are singing about the Merry Old Land of Oz.

Modified slightly for Trump:

He gets up at 12 and starts to work at 1
Takes an hour for lunch and then at 2 he's done..... jolly good fun!!

26. Former CEO of my workplace used to have his toadies

spread the fantastic bit of nonsense that he worked "eighteen hours a day seven days a week."

I didn't want to get into trouble for stating the obvious ("Giving a flunky your number to call only in an emergency is not actually 'working'." ) I just asked, "...Why? Why would any sane person do that?"

35. I'm going to out on a limb here, but I don't think President FatFuk has been missing any

meals lately. Or ever.

And we know he's not working because he is constantly tweeting about what he has seen and heard on the numerous TV shows he has been watching all day long.
