Trump rally crowd sings for passed out supporter

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.

Despite a pre-rally tweet stating he was only interviewing President Trump for Fox and not campaigning with him onstage at the Missouri event, Hannity mounted the stage when the president called him up by name. We have an extraordinary team of journalists helming our coverage tonight and we are extremely proud of their work.

"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".

Hannity himself also tweeted Tuesday, "What I said in my tweet yesterday was 100% truthful. This was NOT planned". Mr. Trump won Missouri in 2016 by nearly 20 points.

Hannity also blasted "most in the media" for being "absolutely clueless", echoing his "fake news" media rant when he was on stage with Trump in Missouri.

"Mr. President, I did an opening monologue today, and I had no idea you were going to invite me up here". "I am covering (the) final rally for my show".

"People throughout the company think a new line was crossed", one employee of the network told CNN. "They do incredible work day in and day out in a fair and balanced way and It is an honor to work with such great professionals".

Trump called Rep. Nancy Pelosi and noted her pitch for bipartisanship in her remarks, her office tweeted. Following Hannity's brief remarks, Trump introduced Jeanine Pirro.

"The Trump agenda is paying massive dividends", Hannity said.

Hannity has done that in the past, interviewing Trump at the site of rallies, sometimes with the crowd listening in. Hannity said on his show that he had been "throwing footballs, signing hats and taking pictures" with members of the audience.

Trump was joined by luminaries within the conservative movement like Rush Limbaugh, Jeannine Pirro and Sean Hannity, as the President desperately tried to keep Republicans in control of the Senate with the prospect of the GOP holding the House majority slipping further and further away.

The network had tried earlier on Monday to establish distance between Hannity and Trump's campaign, which had billed Hannity as a "special guest" at the rally.

She did not immediately add any clarification about how the network "addressed" the events, but Hannity tweeted soon after about his participation.
