On Friday night President Donald Trump boasted and said, “America needs a leader that’s going to work his ass off,” earning laughs at a Virginia campaign rally by chiding “Sleepy Joe” for always going to bed early.
“Joe Biden routinely calls early “lids” that indicate to reporters no more campaign events are planned,” Trump joked.
During the long hour speech on Friday campaign events in Miami, Atlanta and Washington, DC, Trump said, “I got a guy, he stays in his basement all day long and I’m doing this.”
“I don’t know. If he wins, I am going to be very embarrassed. I will say. ‘Gee, I worked so hard, and he didn’t work at all,” President Trump said.
“How can we have Joe Biden representing this country? And you know he is on the lid, you know the lid, right? The lid is when they say, ‘We’re going to put a lid on it,” Trump explained to the crowd.
“it’s an expression. And every day early in the morning, they say, ‘Joe, I mean Joe Biden, sleepy Joe, he is put a lid on it,” Trump said.
“Sir, Biden has put a lid on it. What does that mean? That means he is not working today,” he added.
“This guy takes four days off. You have to have a president that is going to work his ass off for this country. You need a very energetic president.”
President Donald Trump told the Newport News that he, by contrast, powers through jam-packed days of events.
