President Obama is about 35 hours behind schedule

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:
That’s 35 hours and 21 minutes.
Or, about a day and a half.
