Joe Biden has been in office for less than two years and he is already outpacing his recent predecessors on vacation time.
All those weekends in Delaware are adding up quickly.
Oh well, it’s not like there’s anything important going on at the moment, right?
The Washington Examiner reports:
Delaware denizen: Biden outpaces predecessors on vacation time
Ahead of another weekend trip to Delaware, President Joe Biden remains on pace to spend more time away from the White House than any of his recent predecessors.
Biden will head to Rehoboth Beach on Thursday evening to one of the two homes he owns in his home state. He spent more than a quarter of his first year in office in Delaware, typically on weekends, and has continued that trend in year two.
“Every time I get a chance, I go home to Delaware. You think I’m joking. I’m not,” Biden said in February.
Ahead of this weekend’s trip, Biden has spent an estimated 188 full or partial days away from the White House, with 130 spent at his Delaware properties, 52 at Camp David, and six in Nantucket.
If that pace holds, Biden will spend roughly 553 days away from the White House, which he has referred to as a “gilded cage,” over his first term, or 1,106 days over two terms.
People have noticed this trend.

Is it too much to expect Biden to do his job?
