Okay, CNN is claiming that it is 9:00 am until 7:00 pm. But that’s what they’ve fed to CNN, which eagerly digests what the White House tells it, I would assume.
Plus, he has lots of “executive time.” They say he makes phone calls and watches TV. Sounds like naps.
According to CNN:
He has established a regular schedule, including coffee in the mornings with the first lady, meetings and phone calls from the Oval Office starting just after 9 a.m. and a return to his residence by 7 p.m. As he walks home along the Colonnade, he’s often seen carrying a stack of binders or manila folders under one arm. He still brings a brown leather briefcase into the office.
Unlike his most recent predecessors — night owls who spent the dark hours reading briefing materials (President Barack Obama) or watching television (President Donald Trump) — Biden is more of an early-to-bed type. He has continued a tradition of reading letters from Americans, a handful of which are tucked into the briefing materials he brings home in the evenings.
He has expressed a preference for a fire built in the Oval Office fireplace, and sometimes adds a log himself to keep it going. His dogs, two German Shepherds called Major and Champ, sometimes join him.
His days are more structured than Trump’s, whose aides began blocking out large chunks of “executive time” to accommodate his television viewing and telephone calls. Biden’s meetings are more routine, though they often run longer than planned. The door to the Oval Office is not considered open to just anyone, as it sometimes was under Trump.
