It seems there’s some serious trouble in paradise between disgraced ex-President Donald Trump and what is perhaps his staunchest, most devout ally in the media.
Folks, I think Donald Trump and Sean Hannity might be breaking up.
As we’ve become painfully aware by now, the former guy’s ego absolutely cannot tolerate even the semblance of a slight against him. If you’re not cheerfully agreeing with every word he says, then you’re screwing him over in his book, and he doesn’t take well to it.
Given all we know about Trump’s ego, the moment we heard of Fox News host Sean Hannity’s text messages to Donald’s then Chief of Staff Mark Meadows during and after the infamous Capitol riot — that could very well be perceived as critical of the now ex-President as Hannity tried desperately to call on Meadows to make Trump make his supporters stop — we knew it was only a matter of time before Trump set his enraged sights on the Right-wing talking head.

It seems that time is now upon us.
CNN’s Kaitlan Collins reported on a recent new statement from the one-term, twice-impeached former president, following the revelation of Hannity’s texts to Meadows, rebuking his Conservative media BFF’s pleas to bring the riot to an end.
On January 10th, just days after the fateful riot, Hannity was said to have texted Meadows, writing, “He can’t mention the election again. Ever.”
It was this text that Trump took aim at in his Tuesday evening statement, earlier this week.
“I disagree with Sean on that statement and the facts are proving me right,” he one-term, twice impeached former guy penned, clinging tight to baseless claims and disproven conspiracy theories that the 2020 presidential election was somehow stolen from him through widespread voter and election fraud.
Another message from Hannity, this time to House Rep. Jim Jordan, continued to call on Trump to back off of the election talking point following the violent siege, “We can’t lose the entire WH counsels office. I do NOT see January 6 happening the way he is being told. After the 6th. [sic] He should announce will lead the nationwide effort to reform voting integrity. Go to Fl and watch Joe mess up daily. Stay engaged. When he speaks people will listen.”
We knew it was only a matter of time before that relationship started to crumble. I suppose that’s now.
