Trump Tells Hannity He’s ‘Not Really’ a Patriot: You Just Want ‘Great Ratings’
A night after Fox News ran President Trump’s 2020 re-election “kickoff” rally uninterrupted in primetime, Fox News host Sean Hannity handed over almost the entirety of his show to a phone interview with the president. And while their friendly conversation on Wednesday night broke little news, the president did find time to boast about his rally’s ratings.
“If I don’t use social media—outside of you and a few other great people—I call them patriots,” the president told Hannity. “But actually, you’re not REALLY patriots as much as you want ratings.”
“I mean, you give me great ratings, in all fairness Sean. It’s like, last night, you have tremendous — I heard the speech. That was an easy night, you and Tucker [Carlson] and everyone else said let’s do it and you did it.”
