Eric Trump's Oblivious Boast About His Father Gets A Brutal Fact-Check




 

Eric Trump tried to brag about how hard his father, Donald Trump, worked when he was in office, but given the former president's famously light schedule, it didn't go well.

Eric Trump was attempting to slam President Joe Biden and his administration during an appearance on Fox News on Tuesday:

Axios obtained Donald Trump's schedule at several points during his administration. In 2019, it showed him in "executive time" for 60 percent of his working hours.

Axios reported that in 2018, "executive time" often meant Trump was "in his residence, watching TV, making phone calls and tweeting" and that his typical day didn't begin until 11 a.m., soon after which he took an hourlong lunch.

Trump, who boasted in 2016 that he would "stay in the White House and work my ass off" and wouldn't have time for vacations and golf, also spent 428 days of his presidency at a Trump Organization property, according to The Washington Post.

He played nearly 300 rounds of golf during his single term in office, costing taxpayers more than $150 million, with much of that money going into his own pocket since many of the golfing trips took place at his resorts.

Eric Trump's comment prompted many fact-checking responses:
