A surprising announcement was just made about Fox News host Sean Hannity that has left his fans stunned.

The New York Daily News reported that new reports have come in that indicate that Hannity calls the White House switchboard nearly every night after his show to speak to President Trump. A source close to the situation said that Hannity sometimes talks to Trump multiple times a day and that he “fills the political void” left by former White House strategist Stephen Bannon.

The report added that since Melania Trump sleeps in her own room, President Trump has grown to rely on Hannity “to decompress” at the end of the day.

With so many leaks still plaguing Trump’s White House, the president has a hard time trusting members of his own administration, so he relies on Hannity for validation. Hannity will call the White House most nights after his 9pm Fox News show ends, and he is one of a select few authorized callers who is allowed to go through. Sources claim that the two typically talk about media ratings all while exclaiming “witch hunt” in between profanities.

This comes after it was revealed that Hannity was a client of Michael Cohen, Trump’s lawyerr who famously negotiated the $130,000 payment to porn actress Stormy Daniels, who claimed she had sex with the President in 2006. Hannity has denied that Cohen ever actually represented him, saying instead that he had “brief discussions with him about legal questions.”

One source explained why Hannity was in contact with Cohen, saying, “Because he was ‘Trump’s lawyer,’ so Hannity sees that and assumes, If Trump thinks he’s smart, then he’s smart!”

It certainly comes as a surprise to learn that Hannity potentially has Trump’s ear every night! What do you think about this? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section.
