The interview, which lasted over 40 minutes, included a great deal of media criticism from the president.
“The Washington Post, The New York Times received Pulitzers for their quote ‘coverage of the Russian probe,'” Hannity noted. “You’ve seen the coverage over two-plus years. Russia, Russia, Russia. Trump, Trump, Trump. Collusion, collusion, collusion.”
“Do you think the news media in this country — and their coverage on this — owes you an apology?” Hannity asked.
“Well, they do owe me an apology — big one,” Trump replied.
“They owe you an apology and all of the people that you mentioned previously and somebody of the other people,” Trump added.
“I’m not holding my breath,” Hannity interjected.
“We actually had a lot of support,” Trump argued. “I watch you and Tucker and I watch Laura and your great guys in the morning with Steve and Ainsley and Brian. Brian came a long way, I kid him, but he came a long way. And so many other people.”
“Not only on Fox, in all fair news. But you look at Jesse has been so great. Just so many people,” Trump said, also mentioning The Washington Times.
“We have far more support than people understand. If we didn’t, I wouldn’t even be talking to you right now,” Trump admitted. “It would be a total mess.”
The Washington Post and New York Times weren’t the only publications to draw Trump’s ire.
“I think NBC is more corrupt than CNN if that’s possible,” Trump argued. “I think they were more hostile frankly than CNN which is hard to believe.”
“But this fake, fake, horrible stuff — nobody can believe how dishonest they have been,” he added.
Also on Thursday, it was reported Hannity is considering leaving Fox News for being insufficiently subservient to Trump.
Trump’s mental decline compared to Reagan’s hidden Alzheimer’s in brutal MSNBC assessment
On Saturday morning a deadly serious MSNBC panel took up Donald Trump's increasingly erratic behavior of late, which led one panelist to sincerely suggest the president needs to be evaluated by mental health officials because she believes the White House is covering for him.
Speaking with host David Gura, MSNBC legal analyst Maya Wiley admitted that she is no doctor, but that there are signs of the president's decline that reminded her of how Ronald Reagan's White House hid his Alzheimer's from the public.
"This is the man last week said he was the second coming, the 'chosen one,'" Wiley began. "It is very, very difficult to not have a conversation about whether or not he's competent to serve as president. I say that because there were actually objective measures this week."
Former Dem Senator hilariously nails perfect impression of ‘pouting’ Trump at G7 because nobody ‘likes him’ there
During the "Overtime" segment of HBO's Real Time, former North Dakota Sen. Heidi Heitkamp (D) made fun of Donald Trump before he arrived at the G7 summit in France,m saying he will pout his way through the weekend because the other world leaders loathe him.
With host Bill Maher asking how the Trump will conduct himself, Heitkamp immediately went into a very recognizable arms-crossed pout, which caused the audience to burst into laughter.
After the two posed as Trump and Geerman leader Angela Merkel from the last get together, Heitkamp had a few things to say about the president.
Trump lies to the press about his massive tax increase while departing to France for the G7 Summit
President Donald Trump was caught repeating inaccurate claims when he spoke to reporters before boarding Marine One for his trip to France for the G7 Summit.
"I think our tariffs are very good for us. We're taking in tens of billions of dollars, China is paying for it," Trump argued.
In reality, China is not paying for the tariffs, which are paid by American importers and passed on to consumers, making the announcement a massive tax increase on Americans.
"Our tariffs are working out very well for us, people don't understand that yet," Trump argued.
