So, somebody at the Washington Post clearly has too much time on their hands.

Perhaps he or she was waiting for President Barack Obama. After President Obama was more than an hour late to a news conference yesterday, they went to official White House records and added up how late the President’s been all year.

On average, he’s 11 minutes late to scheduled events. The cumulative total: 

2,121 minutes.

That’s 35 hours and 21 minutes.

Or, about a day and a half.
