Newsweek spoke to a number of White House sources who confirmed that the President is not only bored with being President but that he is essentially a lazy person.
“Trump turns on the television almost as soon as he wakes, then checks in periodically throughout the day in the small dining room off the Oval Office, and continues late into the evening when he’s back in his private residence. “Once he goes upstairs, there’s no managing him,” said one adviser.
Sometimes, at night, he hate-watches cable shows critical of him, while chatting on the phone with friends…
In the morning, the president typically flips between “Fox & Friends,” Maria Bartiromo’s show on Fox Business and CNBC’s “Squawk Box.”
“Donald Trump was so frustrated by the ongoing investigation into his administration’s links with Russia he would sometimes scream at television when news concerning it came on, according to one of his advisers.”
“O’Brien told Maureen Dowd, the New York Times columnist, that the pinnacle of Trump’s career was the erection of Trump Tower. That was in 1983. But the success of that went to his head and he never cared again. He’s fundamentally lazy. He free-rides so many processes he doesn’t know anything about. He used to do it in the business world, and now he does it in the political world,” O’Brien told Dowd. “He’s not a student of anything other than protecting his image.”
