President Donald Trump broke bread with former deputy assistant Sebastian Gorka in the White House, along with a Fox News pundit — and no, it wasn’t Sean Hannity.
In a sign of how his stock continues to rise at the network, joining the president and his former aide was none other than Fox News personality Jesse Watters, according to The Daily Beast.
Trump invited the men to dinner in the White House residence Monday because “he couldn’t get enough of them on TV,” according to the customary anonymous source.
Topics of conversation at the table reportedly included “what he’d seen on Fox News, politics, gossip, and his administration,” the Daily Beast reported.
The source said Trump joked that he “missed” Gorka, a current Fox News contributor who served as an aide to fired White House chief strategist Steve Bannon.
“It was so lit,” another source said of the dinner.
Watters later tweeted an image of a Trump autographed menu.
“To Jesse[,] You are great!” the president wrote across the top of the menu adorned with an American eagle holding an olive branch and a bundle of thirteen arrows, as seen in the presidential seal.

The image prompted a humorous response from former CBS investigative reporter Sharyl Attkisson, who joined well wishers by joking about the president’s signature.
“So — you got an autograph from a heart monitor? 🙂 Just kidding; well done,” she tweeted.
