Sean Hannity Often Tells Trump What To Tweet, They Discuss Ideas For Hannity’s Show: Report
Fox News host Sean Hannity often tells President Donald Trump what to tweet, and the two of them brainstorm ideas for Hannity’s show, according to a new report.
The Washington Post notes that White House advisors often call Hannity the unofficial chief of staff.
One presidential adviser told The Washington Post that Hannity “basically has a desk in the place.”
Trump reportedly cites Hannity during conversations with White House advisers.
Sources told The Washington Post that the two men speak several times a week, review news stories and aspects of Hannity’s show.
Hannity offers Trump loyalty and a mass audience, while Trump helps Hannity’s ratings by telling his supporters via Twitter to watch Hannity’s show.
Former deputy Trump campaign manager David Bossie confirmed the highly unethical relationship between Trump and Hannity:
The president sees him as an incredibly smart and articulate spokesman for the agenda.
Hannity recently tried to smear Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who is investigating Russia-Trump collusion, as a mob crime boss.
Unlike Hannity or Trump, Mueller is a decorated veteran who served his country in combat.
Hannity and Trump refused to comment.
