Trump's 10 softest interviews as president, ranked

Written by  Callum Borchers

Interviewers from Fox News, Christian Broadcasting Network and more went easy on the president with statements like this: "Mr. President, I am so glad to see you. I'm so proud of everything you're doing.

" (Meg Kelly/The Washington Post)

President Trump returned to the friendly set of Sean Hannity's Fox News program Wednesday, only this time the environment was extra friendly because Hannity took his show on the road to Middletown, Pa., where Trump delivered a speech about tax policy, and conducted the interview in front of a cheering crowd.

The interview was about as soft as you would expect. After all, Hannity a) appeared in a Trump campaign ad, b) remains an informal adviser to the president, and c) is not a journalist, by his own admission.

Yet the interview was not even the softest one Trump has been given as president. (Trump does a lot of interviews with non-journalists.) Below, I have compiled a completely unscientific ranking of the commander in chief's 10 most pillowy, cushiony interviews.

The point, in case it's not obvious, is that Trump generally avoids tough questions.
