Last night, Donald Trump had a massive public meltdown as he spoke at a Pittsburgh rally for GOP congressional candidate Rick Saccone.
While his horrible speech had several low points, like when he attacked former President Barack Obama and actually called MSNBC’s “Meet The Press” host Chuck Todd a ‘son of a b*tch,’ one of his most shocking moments came with a brag that was so insane, we can’t even wrap our heads around it.
Apparently, Trump thinks he’s done enough work in his short presidency to have earned the right to “coast” through the rest of his term. At the rally, Trump failed to form cohesive sentences as he rambled:
“So our, my slogan, our slogan, this is a team, our new slogan will be, which I’m almost positive — never like to go too far in advance, but let’s assume it is going like it is going. By the way, if we coasted for 2 1/2 years, we did a hell of a job. You know that. In fact, I was telling some of the guys let’s just coast because the stock market is up almost 40% since election day.”
Yes, you read that correctly. The president with the lowest historical approval rating and the most failures in his first year believes his performance is so good that he’s earned the right to stop working.

Here are just a few fun facts that prove how batsh*t crazy this is:
- Trump works the least out of any president. His private schedule reports that he only works Monday through Thursday from 11AM to 6PM. He even has breaks for personal time within those short working hours. That’s right — the average American works far more hours than the president.
- Trump has only spent a third of his time in office.
- 95 days of Trump’s presidency has been spent golfing instead of working.
Any logical person would argue that Trump hasn’t even started working since he was sworn in! He’s been “coasting” since the inauguration! What we would really like to know is when the president is going to actually accomplish something besides giving tax cuts for the rich.
