One-term ex-president Donald Trump resurfaced yesterday on Sean Hannity’s Fox News program. Everything about the interview was hilarious, including Hannity promoting it as some unexpected major exclusive. From the very beginning, Trump looked as though he did not want to be there. The former president opened up by, unsurprisingly, rehashing the 2020 election and his bogus claims about voter fraud. This should really come as no surprise because it took forever for Donald to stop talking about the 2016 election. Trump argued it was suspicious that he lost despite getting more votes than he received four years prior, which he said doesn’t happen. While Barack Obama got fewer votes in his reelection bid than when he first won in 2008, former two-term Presidents Bush, Clinton, and Reagan all got more votes their second time running.
Hannity couldn’t help but ask if Trump plans on running for president again in 2024. Trump said that “from a legal standpoint, I don’t really want to talk about it yet.” This could have to do with him wanting to use his donations as a slush fund before announcing a run. The pair only briefly discussed coronavirus and the vaccine program. Hannity asked Trump if people should get immunized. The ex-POTUS took it as an opportunity to complain that “they all want me to do a commercial because a lot of our people don’t want to take [the] vaccine.” The former president went on to half-heartedly confirm that he got vaccinated himself and that he wants others to as well. It’s like pulling teeth to get Trump to approve of the vaccination effort because he knows that a good portion of his supporters disagree with him on the subject. Trump will need them all by his side if he’s going to have any hope of winning in 2024.
