Um... no due to:

1. Part of the presidents job description is talking to the people, this includes twitter

2. The president isn't a "paid by the hour" job.

That being said this job might allow various small breaks, and as long as he is not using government equipment he should be fine as far as conduct goes.

The government might have a case if they think he is a threat to national security though. As you really don't want to take chances with someone who might bend the rules.

It's more about some port being open which is exploitable to attacks, maybe something like a bug in the system clock that will brick your computer on a certain date, or maybe they need to revoke a trusted cert.

No matter what you do, when you manage a system that is widely used, you will negatively impact someone.

It's all relative to how much you make. I pay $1600 rent to live 15 minute walk from work (1 bedroom) and still manage to have 20K left over every year in my entry level job (that includes generous contributions to retirement). If I had a family, I probably would take that $1000 house rental that is an hour drive away.

Protip: leave for work at 6:30, you can beat traffic that way.
