Fox's Hannity Speaks Onstage at Trump Campaign Rally

Fox's Hannity Speaks Onstage at Trump Campaign Rally

CNN on Tuesday reported that more than a dozen Fox News staffers said they were disappointed by Hannity's decision to participate in a campaign rally in Missouri on Monday night.

"When the POTUS invited me on stage to give a few remarks last night, I was surprised, yet honored by the president's request", Hannity tweeted.

"In spite of reports, I will be doing a live show from Cape Girardeau and interviewing President Trump before the rally", Hannity tweeted.

"I mean, when people say that there's no difference and when Fox tries to consider itself a news organization, they have some complications at moments like this".

That talking point was repeated regularly throughout the rest of the night on Fox News - accepted and repeated mainly because Trump said it.

"If the radical Democrats take power, they will take a wrecking ball to our economy and to the future of our country", Trump said, prompting boos from the crowd.

"I do eventually want to unite, " Trump said in Fort Wayne, Indiana, "but I'm driving them insane".

Trump then asked Jeanine Pirro to speak. Fox has not addressed the question publicly. Here's what's going on at Fox: They know, vaguely, that they're not supposed to have one of their hosts endorse a candidate or a party.

Obama, Trump clash in final pitches to midterm voters
He took to Twitter to criticise Senator Donnelly on Saturday evening, while travelling to Florida from a rally in Montana. A second poll, by NBC and The Wall Street Journal , also showed Democrats holding the same seven-point advantage.

National Security Adviser John Bolton, State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert, National Economic Council Director Larry Kudlow, and current White House Communications Director Bill Shine all had careers at Fox News before joining the administration.

Hannity and the president have had a close bond for years - before the 2016 election, Trump falsely claimed that he had been against the Iraq war and when pressed for evidence of that position, he said that he and Hannity used to have "arguments" about the war.

The network called Hannitys appearance at the event in Cape Girardeau, Missouri, an "unfortunate distraction" and said it had been addressed.

Limbaugh said it was "a great honor" to be a guest at one of Trump's electrifying rallies, noting that they were the "envy" of professional Washington, DC. Then, when Trump called him up, Hannity quickly went from "covering the final rally for [his] show" to becoming part of the show. In 2016, for instance, he cited unscientific polls on-air after a Fox News executive told network producers that they did not meet the company's editorial standards.

While Hannity has been able to get away with breaking normal protocol, the network had previously attempted to reign him in.

Hannity took the stage and embraced Trump.

It was an extraordinary scene after the news network had worked Monday to establish distance between Hannity and the campaign.
