When Donald Trump suggested cancelling White House daily briefings, 'Fox News' host Sean Hannity encouraged the president with another idea.
Hannity suggested the commander in chief just "tweet out his accomplishments instead."Trump's wanting to cancel all future press briefings come in the wake of the inconsistent news reporting and the resulting media frenzy surrounding the firing of FBI Director James Comey.
In a Fox News interview with Jeanine Pirro, President Trump further entertained the idea of just holding bi-weekly press briefings himself in lieu of the increasingly under-performing press secretary Sean Spicer.
"Unless I have them every two weeks and I do them myself, we don’t have them," he told Pirro. "I think it’s a good idea. First of all, you have a level of hostility that’s incredible and it’s very unfair."
Hannity, ever the loyal Trump supporter, couldn't agree more.He rationalized that the president tweeting updates himself would prevent the press from twisting the truth in their reporting.
"As long as they keep reporting fake news, bizarre conspiracy theories and show this bizarre fascination and paranoia about Russia, how about no more press conferences for the Hillary Clinton-colluding media?" said the Fox news host.
"Instead, I think every week the president should tweet out all of his accomplishments going back to Day One. Update people daily about what he's doing and what he's accomplishing."
"If the propaganda ‘destroy Trump’ media, if they’re going to smear and slander him and his administration and his family and lie about facts and what he’s done, why bother?” Hannity huffed.
“Why waste the energy trying to appease people who obviously hate his guts and want to destroy him?” he went on. “And who twist his words and damage him every single day?"
Hannity added that by taking to Twitter every week, "He can respond to the barrage of attacks, this ridiculous conspiracy theory about Russia that is being pushed with no evidence and collusion."
