Hey maybe instead he could actually spend time doing his job? No?

The White House is aggressively investigating several leaks of President Donald Trump’s private schedules, a source of repeated embarrassment to the White House and the president himself.
West Wing officials managing the hunt have enlisted the help of the White House IT office, and believe they are making progress in narrowing the search for potential suspects. One Trump official said the culprit is likely a career government employee who works in the White House, not a person appointed by Trump himself, but did not offer specific evidence.
The search has been approved by the office of acting chief of staff Mick Mulvaney, and Trump himself — who has been infuriated by leaks from within his White House — is aware of the mole hunt and supports the effort, according to one of the officials.
Axios on Sunday published Trump’s private schedules for the past three months that showed how he spent 60 percent of his time in unscheduled “executive time.” Aides say he uses those time blocks to watch TV, call people, read newspapers and do other work. Based on a week’s worth of these same private schedules, POLITICO had also reported in October Trump’s extensive amount of free time that’s unprecedented for presidents, including nine hours of “executive time” in one day.
The fact that Trump is a lazy POS who does not take his job seriously has been reported by almost everybody who has written a book about his presidency.
Of course there are sycophants who deny the reality of that:
“He’s not a slacker. The guy works. He may not have it all scheduled but the guy’s a grinder,” David Urban, a former senior Trump campaign adviser, said in an interview. “He’s not a guy who sits on his hands. Just because it’s not listed on the schedule,” that doesn’t mean that Trump isn’t doing substantive work. “I think it’s more the betrayal of who would give it up, more than anything,” Urban added.
It’s just adorable how hard they work to spin this kind of negative story, don’t you think?
Speaking of books, the recent one by former aide Cliff Sims also talked about Trump’s paranoia about leaks:
In the latest, former White House communications aide Cliff Sims recounts the president calling to demand the names of White House leakers.
“‘Give me their names,’ he said, his eyes narrowing,” Sims writes. “‘I want these people out of here. I’m going to take care of this. We’re going to get rid of all the snakes, even the bottom-feeders.’”
Please. if Trump were to remove all of the bottom feeders from the White House the building would be almost totally empty.
As long as Trump is in office people will be leaking things about him that he does not want us to know.
There is a word for those type of people.
It is “patriot.”
