It’s ironic that Democrats like to attack “the rich” so much, considering that a new report by Axios on President Biden’s work schedule suggests that he may be one of the most overpaid people in America.
The study found that Biden (whose staffers recently “called a press lid” on his day at 9 a.m.) works an average of 30 hours a week, which is five hours less than the average work week in France. His former spokeswoman Jenn Psaki claimed he’s a “night owl,” but records show he seldom works past 7 p.m., and that’s mostly dinners and receptions (to be fair, at his age, eating dinner at 7 does seem awfully late.) Most of his engagements take place between 10 and 4 on weekdays.
For this very light work schedule, the taxpayers pay him around $400,000 a year, or more than six times the average US salary. And unlike Trump, he doesn’t donate it back to the government, he keeps every penny of it.
I know I should be upset about this, but when you consider how much damage he’s wrought in the few hours he does work, I’d be happy to give him a raise if he’d agree not to come to the office at all.
