Biden Has Taken More ‘Personal Travel’ Days Than Any President in Decades – CNN

Joe Biden

A global pandemic, historic levels of illegal immigration, a botched ending of a 20-year war; the list goes on and on of what is happening only ten months into Joe Biden’s presidency. And yet, another record has been shattered: personal vacation days taken by the president.

President Joe Biden has taken more “personal travel” days than any other president in recent decades. The Daily Wire reported, “Biden spent a total of 108 of his first 276 days in office either vacationing or working from one of his two Delaware homes or from Camp David, according to a CNN analysis of Biden’s schedule.”

“The tally includes partial days when Biden split time between the White House and those other properties. Biden’s frequent absences come as his administration has faced a number of crises less than a year into his first term.”

CNN continued:

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.

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. …

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.

Apparently Biden has made his attempts to not look so bad, and already has been handing out excuses in interviews. “Biden has been open about his feelings regarding the White House, telling Vogue in June that there’s ‘no real upside to living physically’ at the residence” reported USA Features News. “During that interview, the president complained of a lack of privacy ‘and the pomp-and-circumstance’ surrounding the whole ordeal.”

    I don’t get it.I understood that Biden has been working long hours whereas Trump was often reported as spending hours watching TV to see if he is featured, and played golf dozens of times. When he lost the election he played golf for days on end. One story about Reagan was that he trusted his management choices to be competent so worked 8 hours usually.It is necessary to be realistic and not try to pretend at his and Trump’s ages that they can keep a strenuous work pattern up without let up.

      He’s a feeble old man who should be in a nursing home. Who are you trying to fool? NO other President has been in the bad shape that he is in. He can’t even complete a sentence. But then we are getting just what hate wants us to have…..if we hate enough we will be punished for our hate. Hate elected him so we are all being punished. Have at ‘em Biden. Show the people just what a hate gets you.

      In that case there should be an age limit then. Being president is a strenuous job and requires physical stamina. Being away from the job as much as Biden has been is unacceptable especially since it’s been a debacle so far.

      I don’t know you told you obiden works long hours, he can’t stay awake more than 2 or 3 hrs at a time. Trump has worked like this through out his life and far more clear minded than obiden was 20 yrs ago. Look at all the gaffs he made as vp and the media said “oh, it’s just ole uncle joe!” obiden has not been of right mind since his bleeding aneurism in the 8o’s. Just ask the doctor that seen him. And why won’t he take a cognizant test, Trump did.

    Not a word from the Libs about this, but when Trump went golfing OMG how they complained, At least Trump did his job as a president, Joe can’t even handle talking to the public, look at the border! The vaccine mandates! Our 13 service men and woman who were killed and the ones left behind, I could go on and on, The world is laughing at us, right now we are the weakest country in the world, Joe & Harris need to be impeached for not doing their job. I think we should stop their paychecks, and make them pay back what they have been paid for the last 10 months. Wake up America, our future is getting darker and darker by the minute.

    You’re right, D.E. – you dont get it.
    Biden often ‘calls a lid’ on the day well before noon. He averages working 20 minutes a day, while President Trump averaged 20 hours a day. And yet Biden needs a vacation day for every couple of days he works… No wonder he has no idea what’s going on…

    Trump was up before the sun working, and he expected his employees to do the same. Now we have a dementia ridden president and our enemies know it.
