On Wednesday, President Trump took to Twitter to direct America towards the 9:00PM broadcast of Sean Hannity’s show on Fox News. Hannity was doing a special feature listing President Trump’s accomplishments from 2017.
“President Trump, he is on fire right now, tonight, on Twitter, and he’s driving the left, predictably, absolutely insane. You’re going to love this,” Hannity began.
“So in spite of vicious media attacks and many political obstacles, well 2017 was a very successful first year for President Trump. Now, before we get to the full list that the media will never show you, let’s take a look at the economy,” he continued. “We ended the year with consumer confidence sitting at a 17-year high. Home prices are up six percent as is home building. Regulations have been slashed at a historic rate. And the Trump administration cut 16 regulations for every new one that was created.”
He even spun pieces of legislation that may seriously injure the American people as accomplishments for Trump. “You, the American people, you are beginning to see the direct impact of this tax bill. For example, companies like Boeing, AT&T, Comcast, Wells Fargo and Fifth Third Bank Corps — all announced employee bonuses or pay increases following that bill. That’s real money back in the pockets of the forgotten men and women that deserve it in this country,” Hannity said.
Trump’s advertisement of his own accomplishments on Fox News was not the only reference to the media he made on Twitter on Wednesday. Later in the evening, he announced a new media event that he is hosting – fulfilling his reputation as a reality television star. “I will be announcing THE MOST DISHONEST & CORRUPT MEDIA AWARDS OF THE YEAR on Monday at 5:00 o’clock. Subjects will cover Dishonesty & Bad Reporting in various categories from the Fake News Media. Stay tuned!” Trump posted.
