Donald Trump reportedly has the same pre-bedtime routine every day: a phone call with Fox News blowhard and Michael Cohen client Sean Hannity.
According to a new report from New York Magazine, “The call to the White House comes after ten o’clock most weeknights, when Hannity is over.”
“Their chats begin casually, with How are yous and What’s going ons,” the magazine continued. “On some days, they speak multiple times, with one calling the other to inform him of the latest developments.”
New York Magazine adds: “On the phone, he and the president alternate between the ‘witch hunt!’ and gabbing like old girlfriends about media gossip and whose show sucks and who’s getting killed in the ratings…”
Totally unsurprisingly, when Trump is done with one of his chats with Hannity, he likes to roam around the White House bragging about it.
According to the report: “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.”
Given Trump’s misinformed and frightening view of the world he’s leading, it’s no surprise that one of his top advisers is a man who proudly spews tinfoil-hat-wearing nonsense on a nightly basis.
Oh, and Melania Trump chooses to sleep in another room
According to the same magazine report, First Lady Melania Trump also refuses to sleep in the same bedroom as her husband.
New York Magazine notes that Trump “leaves the Oval Office around 7 p.m.” and “is almost always by himself on the third floor of the executive residence (the First Lady reportedly sleeps in a separate bedroom).”
Of course, there is a multitude of reasons why nobody can blame Mrs. Trump for opting to sleep in a room without Donald Trump. After all, her husband has never hesitated to choose beds that don’t have Melania Trump in them.
Whether it’s his well-documented extramarital affair with Stormy Daniels – with whom Trump had sexual relations just after his wife gave birth to Barron Trump – or his generally poor treatment of Melania Trump (even as recently as this past Mother’s Day), it’s a shocker that the First Lady chooses to sleep in the same building as this president.
And, let’s be honest: Who would want to sleep with a guy who feels the need to obsessively phone Sean Hannity after he gets into his pajamas?
