Fox News pundit Sean Hannity believes President-elect Donald Trump should ban all press from the White House and instead simply use his Twitter account to announce the news to the American public. Speaking to Breitbart, the far right website overseen by Trump pick Steve Bannon, Hannity said: “They’re all in this hyperventilating mode about 'fake news' now, but they are fake news. That’s them. It’s now on display for the world to see. People don’t need them anymore. They’re done. “I suggested the other day that if any of these organizations were involved in collusion with the Clinton campaign, why do they get a seat in the White House press office? Why does Donald Trump need a White House press office? He doesn’t.

“You know, you can have a pool person that’s standing by if, God forbid, there’s any bad news about the president that the country needs to know, but his own staff could tweet it out, for crying out loud.”

Presumably Hannity expects to have his own special hotline to the Oval Office as an early and ardent endorser of the man his detractors are already calling Cheetolini for his frequent Twitter outbursts and temper tantrums.

Meanwhile, on Twitter, the President-elect himself is growing increasingly annoyed by the 2.3 million and growing vote margin with which Hillary Clinton trounced him in the popular vote.

Over the weekend Trump falsely announced he would have won it if counters “deduct the millions of people who voted illegally.” Later denouncing CNN, who called Trump’s claim erroneous, the President-elect retweeted disparaging comments made about the network by a 16-year-old boy on Twitter.
