When someone belongs to a political party other than their own, one thing that people frequently do is examine and criticize how much time the sitting president spends on vacation. Democrats constantly criticized President Trump when he was in office for taking vacations, but they criticized him the most for making time to play golf on his golf clubs.

Republicans also used to treat Barack Obama in the same manner when he was in office. Republicans would criticize Obama for taking frequent vacations and engaging in frequent rounds of golf as well.

I’ll admit that I used to treat Obama in the same manner. In retrospect, Barack Obama didn’t actually spend a lot of time traveling. Obama spent 328 days on vacation, if what I discovered on Wikipedia is true, even though I am aware that it is frequently inaccurate and contains biased information. I wonder whether there are any situations where Wikipedia isn’t considering something as a vacation, but are considering it a vacation if President Trump did it.

Comparatively, President Trump spent 381 days on vacation according to that Wikipedia article. That would amount to about 26% of the time bet he spent on vacation. If that is accurate than that is just like saying that one of the four years of President Trump was in office, he was on vacation. I highly doubt that this is true. In fact, there are many things that I would say were not a vacation at all. This article is counting any times that he went and played golf as a vacation day or any time that he was at his own property. Just because I go play golf that day doesn’t mean that I didn’t work that day or was on vacation.

And actually, whenever I go to the source that Wikipedia cites, I see the number 281 days at gulf properties and that makes me wonder if that’s what they’re considering as vacation.

But that’s not the point I want to make. Here is what I actually want to point out. Joe Biden has been in office or a little over 500 days so far. He has spent more than 200 of them on vacation. It seems like every time he comes back from a vacation he packs up and goes on another one. As of right now Joe Biden has spent approximately 40% of his time as president on vacation.

According to the New York Post,

President Biden is taking heat for spending 40% of his days in office “on vacation” after he was away from the White House for two-thirds of August.

Biden’s weekend jaunts and vacations spanned 234 days — with seven in 10 of them spent at his homes in Wilmington and Rehoboth Beach, Delaware — out of 589 days in office.

RNC chairwoman Ronna McDaniel told The Post that Republicans believe it’s a winning campaign issue — alongside concerns over the effects of Biden-era spending, including Democrats’ $1.9 trillion stimulus package last year and this year’s $437 billion environmental and health care bill.

The 19-month tally of Biden trips was assembled by the RNC and is consistent with independent journalistic counts. It includes days that Biden spent at his Delaware residences as well as days at the presidential retreat at Camp David, Maryland, and trips to Nantucket, Massachusetts, and Kiawah Island, South Carolina.

  • IF that shit head would stay on vacation full time maybe he wouldn’t do as much harm to our country. He is so brain dead he has no clue if he is on vacation or not. FJB

    • My friend of course knows the needle state about this beautiful freelance technique. (Eg ~232) Sure, I’ve tried the f9 Associate title, I’m currently being paid 26000usd monthly, at the same time I’m not paying an excessive amount of time to Associate in Nursing. In addition,
      you will do this. ====𝐬𝐭𝐫𝐨𝐧𝐠𝐦𝐨𝐧𝐞𝐲𝟐𝟒.𝐛𝐥𝐨𝐠𝐬𝐩𝐨𝐭.𝐜𝐨𝐦

    • Steve, you couldn’t be more correct. Joe Biden has dementia and the media are covering for him, when they should ask him to step down or use the 25th amendment on him. He is a danger to national security b/c China and Russia see him shaking hands with the air, being rescued by his wife or the Easter Bunny…Falling off his bike, falling down the stairs of Air Force One, Sunglasses flying off of his face, cannot put a jacket on, shuffling feet, and so many gaffes talking they must shoot him with adrenaline and addderall just to keep him lucid for a few minutes. He’s spent 40% of time on vacation because the Dems are obviously hiding him as much as possible. His dignity is being trampled on by these users! Let the guy retire already! Make him retire!

      • Naturally, my pal is well-versed in this lovely freelancing method. Yes, I have tried the Associate title. I currently receive a monthly salary of $39,000 US, while also devoting a reasonable amount of time to my Associate in Nursing degree.

      • Although I agree with you maybe we should be careful what we wish for! Should Biden the imposter be removed who do you think would be President? Harris NO she was not borne in America, the constitution says NO! The next in line is the Witch on the hill Pelosi! Can you think of a more despicable fool than her? No keep the idiot there and make sure we all vote every RINO and Democrat OUT who is up for election. Do that and Biden can be impeached and all his spending bills cancelled and yes we can save America.

  • King George biden is basically on perpetual vacation. He really does practically nothing except cause problem’s for everyone else. Maybe he gives a proclamation or a speech, but others do all the work- dressing/feeding him, diaper changes, giving him meds, running interference for his BS statements. High maintenance-low output is this P.I.N.O. The dem-o-rats will pay dearly for using him as their leader. F J B forever.

    • Bruce,
      They are giving him a pass and they have put the 2-tier justice system on full display the last 6 years. They spied on Trump, created fake narratives (Russian hoax had a thousand tropes!), they printed out ballots, changed election laws to allow mail in voting, used 2,000 mules to ballot harvest, and even used algorithms on some of the voting machine systems in order to beat him. No way Biden got 81 Million Votes. Trump probably got 81 million votes and Biden 60 Million in reality. The Justice Dept, Bill Barr, and the FBI had the Hunter Biden Laptop since 2019!!!! They did nothing about it, then banded 30 National Intelligence Liars to say it was “Russian disinformation” during the final debate. January 6 stinks to high heaven because of the federal agents planted in the crowd, Antifa and BLM mixed in wearing Trump shirts and MAGA hats, it was one big frame job!! The truth will come out drip by drip. The behavior of the left has exceeded obscene when it comes to Trump, but like you said Biden gets a pass, despite evidence of his collusion with the CCP and Ukraine for $$$ with his crackhead son peddling his influence around the globe for cash!

  • They need to keep Biden on vacation and away from the press! Every time he opens his mouth . he makes a bigger fool of himself and says something his crew spends weeks walking back! Like his last 1939 Hitler speech! The man ( IF THAT IS WHAT HE CALLS HIMSELF!) is a walking , talking disaster!

  • Biden looked bad the First time around, but he was still “pushed” into the Whitehouse. He couldn’t even pull a descent rally together while Trump had tens of thousands at his rally.
