White House staffers ‘annoyed’ Trump timed his SCOTUS nominee announcement to boost Hannity’s ratings

If the timing of President Donald Trump’s tweet teasing the announcement of his Supreme Court nominee seemed fishy to you, you’re not the only one.

Gabriel Sherman, a Vanity Fair correspondent with many ears inside the administration, tweeted Monday afternoon that according to one of his GOP sources, “some aides are annoyed Trump is announcing SCOTUS pick at 9pm because staffers think [new deputy chief of staff for communications] Bill Shine chose 9pm hour to help Sean Hannity’s ratings.”

Moments later, Sherman tweeted a reminder that “Trump announced [Supreme Court Justice Neil] Gorsuch at 8pm in East Room ceremony” before adding that Hannity has been advising the president to pick dark horse candidate Amy Coney Barrett.

Media Matters’ Angelo Carusone, in response to Sherman’s tweets, noted that on his radio show, the Fox News host said he likes “that it’s right at the start of Hannity and we get to talk about it first.”

Hate for Trump sets new record of Americans who can’t stand a president

Published

on

A new poll shows a record number of Americans can't stand the president of the United States.

According to the most recent NBC News/Wall Street Journal public opinion poll, an astounding 69 percent of Americans don't like Trump personally.

During the early 2000s, President George W. Bush enjoyed the benefit of Americans finding him likable and wanting to "have a beer" with the sober leader. That measure of "likability" has been a kind of inspiration for political leaders searching for voters based not on issues but on personality.
