Sean Hannity and Donald Trump share a very sweet phone call before bed almost every night, according to reports.
This new revelation is both laughable and worrying, considering the crazy stuff that pours out of Hannity’s mouth constantly, and undoubtedly into Trump’s empty head.
The call takes place at around 10pm most nights, after the live broadcast of Hannity at 9pm on Fox (Fake) News in New York.
Hannity will call the switchboard in the White House, and request to speak to Trump. The switchboard operator has a list of people who are cleared to talk to Trump which consists of a couple dozen friends and family members. The list includes Trump’s “adult sons, Eric and Don Jr.; private-equity billionaire Stephen Schwarzman; media billionaire Rupert Murdoch; real-estate billionaire Tom Barrack; Patriots owner and also-billionaire Robert Kraft; and Hannity,” according to NY Magazine.
The operator then calls Trump, who usually has left his office and is in his own private bedroom (Melania reportedly sleeps in a completely separate bedroom.)
According to NY Magazine, “their chats begin casually, with How are yous and What’s going ons. On some days, they speak multiple times, with one calling the other to inform him of the latest developments. White House staff are aware that the calls happen, thanks to the president entering a room and announcing, “I just hung up with Hannity,” or referring to what Hannity said during their conversations, or even ringing Hannity up from his desk in their presence.”
This revelation came to the delight of Twitter followers, who used this information to make fun of Trump mercilessly. Some of these tweets are just too good not to share, so enjoy:

What struck me most about this article is that White House staff reportedly decided that the President of the United States couldn’t handle watching CNN or MSNBC, so they hatched a plan to convince him to only watch Fox News. https://t.co/BJFQ7UqBJq

We’re told that Trump whisperer Sean Hannity and the pathological liar engage in pillow talk every night. Comforting to know that the fate of democracy and the free world rests in the hands of a ventriloquist and his dummy.

WH Staff Member describes Trump’s nightly talks w/ Hannity/Jeanine:
“a fu*ked-up feedback loop” that puts Trump “in a weird headspace. Jeanine or Hannity fill him up with a bunch of crazy shit, and everyone on staff has to go and knock down all the fucking fires they started.”

I wouldn’t be shocked to learn Trump’s first question to Hannity every night is, “What are you wearing?”

“And then there’s was no Mueller; @MichaelAvenatti or Russians ever again. Sweet dreams. Sleepy bo bo time.”
