As Thanksgiving night came to a close, #Donald Trump decided to spend some time [VIDEO] on social media. After tweeting an attack on Obamacare, the president went on to give a shout out to Fox News host #Sean Hannity, as well as internet and TV personalities and supporters "#Diamond And Silk."

Trump on Hannity

Throughout the entire 2016 presidential election [VIDEO], it was more than obvious that Donald Trump was not going to be in good standing with the mainstream media. After Trump referred to illegal immigrants from Mexico as "rapists" and "murderers," he was at odds with the press, which has only escalated since that time.

While most in the media have come down hard on the former host of "The Apprentice," he's found a political safe space on Fox News, with host Sean Hannity being the most vocal supporter. In the year since the shocking results of the 2016 election, Hannity has continued to stand by Trump's side regardless of the controversy that has occurred. From defending the president's reckless rhetoric and questionable policy proposals, to dismissing the evidence backing the allegations of Trump's collusion with Russia, Hannity has gone out of his way to be a strong partisan voice in support of the commander in chief. After Hannity sent out a Thanksgiving tweet, the president decided to pass it along and add his own comments on November 24.

Taking to Twitter on Thanksgiving night, Donald Trump retweeted Sean Hannity's post.
