Trump upbeat despite House loss, will hold news conference

Sean Hannity is known for his shocking rhetoric, but the Fox News host may have gone too far this week when he hit the stage alongside Donald Trump ahead of the midterm elections. "Doctor? Please. Thank you", Trump said, pointing toward a portion of the crowd in Show Me Center in Cape Girardeau.

A spokeswoman for the parent company referred an inquiry to Fox News, which did not elaborate on whether Hannity had been reprimanded in any other fashion.

Hannity, cable news' most popular personality, told the crowd, "By the way, all those people in the back are fake news".

There was not comment as to how it was addressed, but it would appear Hannity may have been kept off the air as a result of his actions.

"They do incredible work day in and day out in a fair and balanced way", he said on Twitter.

"Most of the candidates that the president actually went in and campaigned for and who embrace the president are doing well tonight", she said.

"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. He appeared in a 2016 Trump campaign video and was forced to cancel a 2010 appearance at a Tea Party fundraiser when the network learned of his planned participation.

As race calls stream in from the Fox News Decision Desk, viewers will see live updates on the projections for the balance of power in Congress.

And to add insult to injury, Hannity referred to media in the room - including Fox News employees - as "fake news".

The president of liberal media watchdog Media Matters for America said: "Either Fox News lied all day about their direct collaboration with the Trump campaign or the network simply doesn't have any control over Sean Hannity".

Hours earlier he had denied that he would be campaigning at the event but did admit he would be there covering the final push, as he had in 'every election past'.

As shameless as that kind of partisan cheerleading is for a channel with "news" in its title, I would not be writing this column if that was all Hannity and Fox News did Monday.

As for Judge Jeanine Pirro, she has known President Donald Trump for several decades and reportedly considered becoming part of the administration.

"If the Democrats think they are going to waste Taxpayer Money investigating us at the House level, then we will likewise be forced to consider investigating them for all of the leaks of Classified Information, and much else, at the Senate level".

A network spokesperson pleaded against Hannity taking the stage with the president in a statement on Tuesday. Pirro, a former NY state attorney general who has a weekend show on Fox, spoke after him.
