Fox Anchor Martha MacCallum: Trump ‘Loves To Work,’ He ‘Works Mostly Through The Weekends’

With President Donald Trump having wrapped up a flurry of campaign rallies ahead of today’s midterm elections, Fox News anchor Martha MacCallum gushed over the president’s work ethic while claiming Trump rarely takes time off and spends most of his weekends working.

During a special election broadcast of Outnumbered, host Melissa Francis expressed awe at the president’s campaign schedule, saying it was “staggering how much energy he has.”

“You look at this — we know that he doesn’t really take a lot of time off,” MacCallum responded. “He goes on a vacation, he stays for maybe one day, then he starts working again.”

She continued, “He’s a person who loves to work. He works mostly through the weekends. This is fun for him. He’s been doing this nonstop over the course of the last several days, several weeks, really. It’s fascinating. When I saw President Obama come out the last few days, day three, he has lost his voice.”

MacCallum isn’t the first Fox personality to rave over Trump’s supposed hardworking nature. Last month, Fox Business host Trish Regan conflated the president’s 3 AM tweets with him being a “workaholic.”

Meanwhile, Politico recently reported that the president regularly enjoys as much as nine hours of “executive time” a day during the week, and he generally has as up to three times as much free time schedule as work time. Also, Trump has golfed on average about once every four days since entering the White House.
