Sean Hannity blasted for joining Trump on stage after declaring he wouldn’t

It’s no secret that Fox News host Sean Hannity and President Donald Trump have an affinity for one another, but the conservative pundit took his support a step further on Monday night when he appeared on stage with him at a rally ahead of tonight’s midterm elections.

The appearance on stage from Hannity came just hours after he insisted that he would not be campaigning with Trump in Missouri.

“In spite of reports, I will be doing a live show from Cape Girardeau and interviewing President Trump before the rally,” the Fox News host tweeted on Monday. “To be clear, I will not be on stage campaigning with the President. I am covering final rally for my show. Something I have done in every election in the past.”

The host interviewed the president live before being called on stage.

During his appearance on stage Hannity blasted the media and hugged Trump, according to the Associated Press. He also repeated the president’s “promises made, promises kept” campaign slogan.

“The one thing that has made and defined your presidency more than anything else, ‘promises made, promises kept,'” Hannity said.

Fellow Fox News host Jeanine Pirro also joined Trump on stage, urging for people to vote Republican.

Numerous people online brought up their thoughts about Hannity taking the stage with Trump.

Hannity, after making that false declaration about himself during the day, called the media “fake news” in his speech.
