How, on earth, did we get here? The President of the United States is ‘holed up’ in the White House, hiding from a porn star, Stormy Daniels.

President Trump has not been seen in public in five straight days, with Wednesday marking “the fourth workday in a row that Trump has two hours or less of presidential duties on his official schedule, and none open to his press poll,” writes CNBC’s Christina Wilkie.

While Trump emerged from the White House on Tuesday night to visit the private residence of a donor, real estate developer Giuseppe Cecchi, it was not part of the president’s official duties, The New York Times writes.
