Robert Kraft is close friends with Donald Trump. The Patriots owner donated $1 million to Trump’s inaugural fund and has even taken a ride on Air Force One. With that in mind, it shouldn’t be surprising that Kraft may serve as an unofficial advisor to the President.

The New York Times published a report over the weekend detailing the cadre of friends and associates who Trump regularly phones for advice. Most of them, much like Trump itself, are older white men with sizable wealth.

Several of the confidants, including inaugural committee chairman Thomas Barrack Jr. and economic counselor Carl Icahn, are longtime friends of Trump who supported him throughout the campaign. The conservative media establishment is represented, too. Fox News host Sean Hannity, 21st Century Fox CEO Rupert Murdoch and Newsmax Media chief executive Chris Ruddy reportedly console the President and offer advice on a regular basis.

The article says Kraft, a longtime Democrat, is an established presence at Mar-a-Lago Resort and often conversed with Trump about the Patriots during football season. Their friendship dates back several decades, but intensified in 2011 shortly after Kraft’s wife, Myra, passed away. Trump called Kraft once per week for the next year to lift his spirits.

“When Myra died, Melania [Trump] and Donald came up to the funeral in our synagogue, then they came for memorial week to visit with me,” Kraft said earlier this year, via the New York Daily News. “Then he called me once a week for the whole year, the most depressing year of my life when I was down and out. He called me every week to see how I was doing, invited me to things, tried to lift my spirits. He was one of five or six people that were like that. I remember that.”

Aaron Hernandez left three handwritten notes next to a bible in his prison cell before he hanged himself last week. The Daily Mail reports they were addressed to his fiancee, four-year-old daughter and gay prison lover. The identity of Hernandez’s alleged partner has now been revealed.

Citing sources, the Daily Mail says the disgraced ex-NFL star’s prison boyfriend was Kyle Kennedy, a 22-year-old Worcester native who’s serving time for armed robbery. According to the British tabloid, Hernandez gifted Kennedy a $50,000 watch and other property before he took his own life. Kennedy is reportedly under suicide watch.

Daily Mail reporters went to the Kennedy’s suburban home seeking comment, but his father chased them away.

The Milford Daily News covered Kennedy’s early morning robbery of a Cumberland Farms gas station in Northbridge when he was arrested in January 2015. During the burglary, Kennedy was sporting a black mask and wielded a butcher knife. Police handcuffed him after a high-speed chase.

Kennedy set up a profile on a website titled “Write Your Prisoner,” asking for pen pals so he can “possibly build friendships with people from around the world.” His hobbies include racing motocross and “doing anything that includes the outdoors.” His earliest release date is March 1, 2018.

On Kirk & Callahan last week, Boston-based investigate journalist Michele McPhee first reported Hernandez was in a relationship with a male high school classmate from Connecticut prior to the 2013 Odin Lloyd shooting. She says Lloyd’s alleged knowledge of the romance may have played a role in his murder.

“There was a relationship with somebody from his high school years,” McPhee said. “That may have provided –– and this was one of the investigative theories in the beginning –– because they got information from Ernest Wallace that perhaps –– and remember, Ernest Wallace was the guy who ditched the gun –– they had information from him that one of the motives is Odin Lloyd used a derogatory term for gay people in front of Aaron Hernandez and that Odin Lloyd had knowledge because of this relationship he had with the man in Connecticut.”

Shayanna Jenkins Hernandez is asking a judge to release the former Patriots tight end’s suicide notes before his funeral Monday. Hernandez, who was serving a life sentence for the 2013 Odin Lloyd slaying, was recently acquitted on double-murder charges for a Boston shooting, five days before he was found dead in his prison cell last week.

Hour 1 - Glenn, Lou, and Christian react to the Bruins losing another overtime game and being knocked out of the playoffs by the Senators. They also talk about the Celtics and Bulls series and how the Celtics were able to win another game in Chicago.

Fox News host and Donald Trump lapdog Sean Hannity often spars with the vaunted mainstream political press. But he set his sights towards Katie Nolan this weekend, after the FS1 personality called him a “literal f***** moron.”

The exchange started when Hannity lambasted the New York Times, which published a story Saturday about Trump’s habit of phoning friends outside of the White House for strategic advice. Hannity, who’s been one of Trump’s most ardent defenders, was listed as a trusted confidante to the President. The right-wing firebrand didn’t take kindly to his inclusion in the piece, accusing the National Security Agency of surveilling and unmasking him –– an apparent reference to reports that former NSA head Susan Rice asked for the identities of some Trump associates whose conversations were caught on surveillance.

Maggie Haberman, one of the authors of the story, fired back at Hannity.

But Haberman’s rebuttal was nothing compared to Nolan’s reaction. The former “Garbage Time” host dug right into her Fox cohort, unleashing a stream of insults. This prompted Hannity to take a shot at Nolan’s career.

When Hannity stopped engaging Saturday night, Nolan went after tweeters who were taunting her with sexist remarks.

Hannity appeared to express contrition Sunday, saying he has “ZERO problem” with Nolan “being real.” While Nolan and Hannity work for different networks, FS1 and Fox News are both owned by 21st Century Fox.

Though “Garbage Time” is on indefinite hiatus, FS1 says they have big plans for Nolan. Earlier this year, the Sporting News reported the station is developing several new TV shows for the feisty commentator. Perhaps Hannity could be her first guest.
