Trump's Frustration With Fox News Star Reaches Boiling Point
According to the Daily Beast, reporting through three sources, the president is known to mock the Fox News primetime star for throwing him softballs during their one-on-ones. The questions — which one source tells the Beast Trump has called “dumb” — give Trump nothing to work with.
“It’s like he’s not even trying,” Trump has reportedly said, according to a Beast source.
Whatever complaints the president might have about Hannity’s fawning interviews, they have, of course, not hurt the Fox News host’s standing in the Trump universe. As recently as Nov. 5, the president invited Hannity on stage at his final pre-election campaign rally in Missouri — an appearance which drew condemnation from Fox News.
Inside sources allege this decision constituted an act of defiance on the part of the president who knew Hannity had said that he wouldn't appear onstage with Trump.
