Trump Congratulates Hannity On Ratings: ‘What You Are Doing to Your Competition Is Incredible’

At the end of his interview with Fox News’ Sean Hannity that aired this evening, President Donald Trump took a moment to pat the conservative commentator on the back over Hannity’s high ratings in his new timeslot.

“I will say this, you have been so great,” Trump told Hannity. “I’m very proud of you.”

The president continued, “I am a ratings person. Has anyone seen his ratings? What you are doing to your competition is incredible. Number one and I am very proud of you. An honor to be on your show.”

This seemed like a not-so-veiled shot at MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow, who had been leading cable news in ratings before he Hannity moved to the 9 PM slot when Fox News switched up its lineup recently.
