It Seems Jealousy Brewed Inside Fox News As WaPo Report Claims Jeanine Pirro Would “Become Irate” If She Felt Trump Wasn’t Appearing On Her Show Often Enough, Especially If He Had Been On Hannity’s Show A Lot Prior

The immaturity is astounding.

The old saying goes, “Birds of a feather flock together,” and it certainly rings true when it comes to ex-President Donald Trump and the company he regularly surrounds himself with.

There’s certainly no denying that Trump greatly suffers from a lack of emotional maturity. The man couldn’t regulate his own thoughts and feelings with a loaded gun to his melon. And not much more can be said for the people he hangs out with.

Just earlier today, we reported on the new Washington Post piece that revealed just how incestuous and unprofessional Donald Trump’s relationship with his “Cable Cabinet” of Fox News hosts was during his days in the White House — so much so that many of the network’s most notable talking heads had a direct phone number to reach the then-president, would often be dialed in on official Oval Office meetings, and, especially in the final year of Trump’s term, the likes of Sean Hannity and Jeanine Pirro became strong influences over the president’s ideas and policies.

But that wasn’t all that the Post’s report shed a light on when it came to the mutualism symbiotic relationship enjoyed between the now-ex-president and Fox News Network’s most popular stooges. Apparently, not only did they share their insane, unhinged ideas and policies, their level of emotional immaturity was perfectly matched as well.

While the deep-dive report notes that Trump heavily relied on and was heavily influenced by both Sean Hannity and Jeanine Pirro, it seems that fact did little to nothing to soothe Pirro’s jealous streak.

Apparently, Judge Jeanine would often “become irate” if she felt that then-President Trump hadn’t made enough appearances on her Fox News show to meet her arbitrary standards. According to the report, this anger would only become even more exacerbated if Trump had made quite a few appearances on Sean Hannity’s segment prior to hers.

“Fox shows were so important to the president that White House staffers were determined to get guests booked on them, even forcing staffers to take weekend shifts appearing on Pirro’s show after Pirro complained she couldn’t get a guest — and the former president also called in himself,” the Washington Post report reads.

Frankly, it’s truly no wonder that these people get on like peanut butter and jelly or peas and carrots — they all have the emotional maturity of a toddler who hasn’t had a nap.
