WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump’s favourite TV network is increasingly serving as a West Wing casting call, as the president reshapes his administration with camera-ready personalities. Trump’s new national security adviser, John Bolton, is a former U.N. ambassador, a White House veteran — and perhaps most importantly a Fox News channel talking head. “He’s looking for people who are ready to be part of that television White House,” said Kendall Phillips, a communication and rhetorical studies professor at Syracuse University. “This is the Fox television presidency all the way up and down.”Trump’s affinity for Fox News is by now well-documented. This past week Trump promoted Hannity on Twitter, saying: “18 A.M.”The president’s early-morning tweets often appear to be reaction to Fox programming.
