Trump's new best friend is Sean Hannity, now that he can't stop engaging in "shouting matches" with John Kelly, and running to "his people" on Twitter when nobody is watching him rub his naked ass all over the White House furniture.
Just 24 hours after sucking Steve Bannon's cock, Hannity sucked Trump's cock (AGAIN) during an "interview" that touched on such hard-hitting issues as Hannity's ratings, and how the Islamo-Democratic cities are ruining America with all their Messicans and black people.

ISIL's crazy British lady known as the "White Widow" was apparently killed in a drone strike.
