Our Finest Hour


Here’s a brain teaser for you. Try to spot one thing Newt attributes to Churchill that is rather conspicuously absent form a typical day in Trump’s schedule:

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich defended President Trump on Monday for his unorthodox White House schedule—filled with “executive time” in which he spends a reported 60 percent of his day watching TV, reading newspapers, tweeting, and talking on the phone with friends—by noting that Winston Churchill took naps every afternoon in his pajamas.

The president’s light schedule was leaked to Axios via a White House source, and he was picked apart for most of Sunday for ostensibly taking the first several hours of the day off.

“The distortions of the hate-Trump movement are never more obvious than in the reaction to the President’s leaked schedule,” Gingrich tweeted Monday morning. “The ignorance of history of the current elites is pathetic. Churchill slept late, worked late, took a nap every afternoon (getting into his pajamas).”

To be Scrupulously Fair, watching hours of Fox News every day is pretty grueling work when you think about it.
