On Thursday, the Hollywood Reporter published an excerpt from Michael Wolff's new book "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House," which provides a detailed account of the 45th president's election and first year in office.
The book has made headlines for a variety of reasons, most notably for comments made by Steve Bannon, a far-right former White House strategist. In response to Bannon's comments, Trump's spokesperson publicly claimed that Bannon has "lost his mind" and that the far-right Breitbart News executive had never been very close to the president.
Another headline, although perhaps less important, involves conservative talk-show host and Fox News commentator Sean Hannity, who allegedly wanted to provide Trump with interview questions beforehand. According to the Hollywood Reporter:
"It was Hicks who, attentive to his lapses and repetitions, urged him to forgo an interview that was set to open the 60 Minutes fall season. Instead, the interview went to Fox News' Sean Hannity who, White House insiders happily explained, was willing to supply the questions beforehand. Indeed, the plan was to have all interviewers going forward provide the questions."
According to The Hill, the Hollywood Reporter insists that Hannity was repeatedly — not just one isolated time — willing to provide President Trump with questions before interviews.
But according to a Hannity spokesperson, Hannity himself denies the allegations. In fact, Hannity claims that he did not provide questions ahead of time to President Trump and never claimed that he was willing to.
Similarly, Hannity added that despite some rumors suggesting the contrary, he was never willing to leave his successful TV and radio career to work for the Trump administration.
"I never provided questions ahead of time to President Trump and never said I was going to quit my longtime, successful TV and radio career to work for his administration."
Sean Hannity has repeatedly claimed that the mainstream media is trying to "destroy President Trump." Sean Hannity has publicly dedicated an ample amount of time responding to CNN and MSNBC hosts who go after President Trump in an overly-emotional and hyperbolic way, according to The Hill.
The allegations against Hannity have not been confirmed.
In recent news, Jeff Sessions just made a major announcement about legalizing marijuana throughout the country.
