President Trump sat down with Fox & Friends host Ainsley Earhardt on Wednesday, and on Wednesday night, she commended Trump's courage to fellow Fox News personality Sean Hannity. "There was breaking news yesterday, and so much negative news — hats off to him for sitting down with me today," she said. "I think that was very brave." She told Hannity that she would make news on Thursday's Fox & Friends, but she did disclose some new details of her interview, specifically that Trump is angry at his former lawyer, Michael Cohen, but not at his former campaign chairman Paul Manafort, both of whom became felons on Tuesday. (That part isn't news if you read Trump's Twitter feed.)
"Is he more mad at Michael because of the tape?" Hannity asked. "Absolutely," said Earhardt. "He mentioned pardoning Manafort." "He did mention pardoning Manafort?" Hannity asked. "He did, he did, and said he would consider that," Earhardt said. "He feels, I think, he feels so — I think he feels bad for Manafort."
Earhardt and Hannity both got some significant facts wrong, but Earhardt did tease what she called big news about what Trump said regarding Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. She also said Trump agreed that Democrats would likely impeach him if they win the House and complained about Hillary Clinton. Peter Weber
