Sean Hannity is one of the rare conservative pundits who has not criticized the President up until this point. Fox News anchors such as Megyn Kelly and Shep Smith have had no hesitation in calling him out when they feel they should. But it seems the Presidents recent actions have pushed even Hannity over the edge.
Hannity has labeled the President as “too sensitive at times.” Hugh Hewitt who is a conservative radio show host and Washington Post columnist pushed Hannity while arguing with him about what it was about the President that bothers him.
The radio show host acknowledged that the President is not perfect and has made mistakes. But that thus far he has stuck to his promises that he made on the campaign trail. Hannity told Hewitt the following,
“The difference between Trump and, say, other politicians, … they’ll say anything to get elected. [Trump] just stuck to what he believed in, and maybe that’s a fault.”
He admitted the President has a problem with his social media. Stating that he should refrain from tweeting out everything that dawns on him to say out loud. Disapproval over the Presidents Twitter habit is widespread. It seems to have permeated even the upper ranks of conservative nation. But Hannity did not completely denounce the President he said,
“I’ve been pretty candid with [Trump] and with all of you that I’m not a great fan of daily tweets. What I am a fan of is what he’s actually been doing.”
Mitch McConnell even said the following in defense of the President,
“I’m not a fan of the extra discussion that he likes to engage in, but we’re gonna soldier on. We like his positions, and we’re gonna pursue them as vigorously as we can.”
I love Twitter…. it's like owning your own newspaper— without the losses.

Regardless of whether or not people approve of his use of Twitter he was elected into office by the majority. Furthermore, he has maintained all of his promises and it appears that he will continue to do so. At the very least, he is nothing if not the President and a man of his word.
