After a press conference performance that former CIA Director John Brennan called "nothing short of treasonous," Trump's post-summit plans are to give his first two interviews to the Fox News network—and not just the Fox News network, but two of its hardest-right hosts.
The first interview will be with host Sean Hannity, an avid Trump defender who reportedly speaks with and advises Trump on a near-daily basis. No "safer" interview could be imagined; Sean Hannity, it should be noted, has himself been implicated in the Mueller investigation in a roundabout way after he was revealed to be one of Trump lawyer Michael Cohen's only supposed "clients."
The second will be with the network's white nationalist host, Tucker Carlson. Once a CNN talking head, Carlson altered his persona for his move to Fox and now hosts a program that frequently mainstreams arguments and talking points from the "alt-right" movement, including anti-immigrant, anti-Islam, and other white supremacist obsessions. He, too, is contemptuous of the Russia investigation and a hyperbolic Trump defender.
It's not clear if there will be any other Helsinki-based interviews besides these two. The "catch" of landing a sitting president's only two apparent post-summit interviews goes to Fox immediately after ex-Fox News executive Bill Shine was hired as new White House deputy communications chief; Shine was forced to resign from Fox after it was revealed he helped cover up sexual harassment and assault charges against some of the network's biggest names.
