President Biden is uninterested in generating headlines, which only emphasizes how the Trump-size hole in Washington has created a sense of free time in the capital — psychically, if not literally.
There were exactly eight tweets, each one rooted in what can best be described as reality. There was a visit to spend time with an ailing friend, Bob Dole, the former Republican senator. And there was a stop at church with the grandchildren.
Since Mr. Biden assumed office, the weekends have been portraits of domesticity — MarioKart with the kids at Camp David, bagels in Georgetown and football in Delaware. A Peloton devotee, he doesn’t even play golf. Mr. Biden’s demonstrable uninterest in generating audacious headlines only emphasizes how much the Trump-size hole in Washington has created a sense of free time in all realms of the capital. Psychically, if not literally.
Though the workload remains (this is still Washington, after all) people are grabbing a few more hours of sleep in the span of time formerly known as the weekend.
“It was going from working 24/7 to sort of not working at all in a snap,” Representative Ted Lieu, Democrat of California and one of the House managers who prosecuted Donald J. Trump in his second impeachment, said of his first post-trial hours. “And it did take awhile sort of for my body and mind to calm down.”
