Donald Trump proclaimed at his last “freedom rally” in Georgia on December 5, 2020 that, “I’ve worked harder in the last three weeks than I ever have in my life.”
During those three weeks of “hard work” 37,000 Americans died from COVID-19. The President’s schedule is unfortunately available to the public online. Here is what the three weeks of hard work look like to President Trump. Be patient and read carefully and compare his schedule to the last three weeks of hard work in our lives.
To speed things up NPE means No Public Events, PC means a WH press Pool Call which is an update that happens every single day and leads to a WH Press Report. Here is the President’s schedule from November 15, 2020 to December 8, 2020:

That’s it folks – last three weeks working harder than he ever has in his life. 6 golf games, 4 flights, 3 luncheons, 3 attempts to overturn the election results, 2 Medals of Freedom, 2 virtual international summits, 1 interview with Fox news, 1 Thanksgiving turkey pardon, 1 rally, 1 coronavirus task force report. 1 coronavirus vaccine announcement, and 37,000 Americans died from COVID-19. Tough week, Donald.
And how did you summarize your feelings: “If I lost, I’d be a very gracious loser. If I lost, I would say I lost and I’d go to Florida and I’d take it easy and I’d go around and I’d say I did a good job, But you can’t ever accept when they steal and rig and lie.”
No, Donald, we can never accept it when you steal and rig, and lie. Hard work, Mr. President? You need some hard labour. The way I see it.
