Instead, they gather at 6 a.m.to watch the morning shows, read newspapers, and trawl the internet for headlines, chyrons, tweets, and photos related to the president. The first six months of his presidency have been marked by inaction and scandal, with a Republican-controlled Congress unable to pass long-planned legislation repealing the Affordable Care Act, courts blocking Trump's attempts to bar people from six majority-Muslim countries from entering the USA, and an ongoing investigation into the Trump administration's alleged ties to Russian Federation.

Unlike daily security briefings that inform the president on national security risks and foreign affairs, this briefing is exclusively to make Trump feel good about himself, the report noted.

The tweets ignore the fact that Trump is doing poorly among all Americans-56% disapprove of his performance، according to Gallup's three-day rolling average-in order to narrowly focus on his base of voters. He has not spent a night at his residence in Trump Tower since the inauguration.

Kimmel presented a collection of old Trump tweets that contradict his current actions, jokingly saying that it's America's fault for paying attention to Trump's words and not what's on the inside.

President Trump walks to Marine One before departure from the South Lawn of the White House for a 17-day vacation to his golf course in Bedminster, N.J. Pence called the report false.

As for the White House turnover, including the losses of National Security adviser Michael Flynn, chief spokesman Sean Spicer, and two communications directors, 58 percent said the departures hurt the administration's ability to be effective, while 37 percent said they would be a help.

White House spokeswoman Lindsay Walters said Monday that Trump will return to his hometown for part of the first half of next week.

Kimmel then explained how he knows Trump is really working: Trump said so on Twitter. "The White House does need some work, apparently that place has a ton of leaks".

In a series of tweets on Tuesday, the president went after the Post and the Times for allegedly failing to seriously cover former President Bill Clinton and former Attorney General Loretta Lynch's meeting past year on an airport tarmac during the FBI's investigation into Hillary Clinton's email practices. "How do you bankrupt a casino?" "But the staff at the White House said, 'For us it is'". "Never been happier, '" joked Fallon.
