Fox News host Sean Hannity is still smitten with former President Donald Trump. On Monday night, he opened an interview with Trump using praise so over-the-top it almost looked sarcastic.

“I know a lot of people that are around you every day. This is what they’re all telling me: You are working as hard as you did when you were in the White House, except you play a little golf more,” Hannity said.

Hannity’s praise didn’t end there:
