'If you were hearing what I'm hearing, you'd be vaping too': Sean Hannity privately called Trump 'batsh-- crazy,' according to new book

"Early on in the Trump age, Hannity gained weight and vaped incessantly, which some members of his inner circle blamed on Trump-related stress," Brian Stelter, CNN's chief media correspondent, writes in "HOAX: Donald Trump, Fox News and the Dangerous Distortion of Truth." "'If you were hearing what I'm hearing, you'd be vaping too,' Hannity told a colleague." "I barely get a word in," Hannity reportedly told another confidant, according to Stelter's reporting. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. Seeking an escape from President Donald Trump's rambling monologues over the phone early in the first term, Fox News opinion host Sean Hannity reportedly turned to vaping and stress eating, according to a new book from CNN's Brian Stelter. "Early on in the Trump age, Hannity gained weight and vaped incessantly, which some members of his inner circle blamed on Trump-related stress," Stelter, CNN's chief media correspondent, writes in his new book "HOAX: Donald Trump, Fox News and the Dangerous Distortion of Truth." For the book, Stelter spoke with more than 140 staffers working at Fox News, in addition to 180 former personnel and people with "direct ties to the network." An exerpt from the Stelter book was published in Vanity Fair Thursday, focusing mainly on Hannity's relationship with the president, which Stelter described as "the president's 'shadow chief of staff,' as he was known around the White House." The access Hannity enjoyed also came with some downsides, according to Stelter's sources. "Hannity counseled Trump at all hours of the day; one of his confidants said the president treated Hannity like Melania, a wife in a sexless marriage," Stelter writes. "Arguably, he treated Hannity better than Melania." For all of Hannity's pro-Trump coverage on his 9 pm show, the longest serving Fox News anchor privatley griped about the president. "'Hannity would tell you, off-off-off the record, that Trump is a batsh-t crazy person,' one of his associates said," according to Stelter. "Another friend concurred: 'Hannity has said to me more than once, "he's crazy."'" Hannity also reportedly told a colleague that on his calls with Trump, "I barely get a word in." Trump, who livetweets Fox News programming on a near-daily basis, would also chat with Hannity as a fan. "Trump was just like the rest of Hannity's viewers: He wanted more of Gregg Jarrett on the show, more of Dan Bongino, more of Newt Gingrich—the toadiest toads possible," Stelter writes. Stelter's book, published by Simon & Schuster, is set for an August 25 release.Join the conversation about this story » NOW WATCH: How the Navy's largest hospital ship can help with the coronavirus
