Prior to the November, 2018 midterms, Fox News host, Sean Hannity joined Donald Trump on state at a Missouri rally. This was after the host claimed that he would not be appearing with the President. Following the elections, the situation was forgotten about and new stories emerged.
When the 2020 elections come around, however, it seems like Hannity will have no reservations about appearing at rallies. While speaking with Kayleigh McEnany, Hannity declared that he will be appearing with Trump so often that supporters will be sick of him.
In his exact words, the host said, “Well I’m going to be out on the campaign trail, tell everybody let not their — their little hearts be troubled, they’ll be sick of seeing me by the end of the campaign.”
This is a much different tune than the one Hannity and Fox News were singing back in November of 2018. The network said of the hosts’s decision, “Fox News does not condone any talent participating in campaign events. We have an extraordinary team of journalists helming our coverage tonight and we are extremely proud of their work. This was an unfortunate distraction and has been addressed.”
A sheepish Hannity tried to explain, “What I said in my tweet yesterday was 100% truthful. When the POTUS invited me on stage to give a few remarks last night, I was surprised, yet honored by the president’s request. This was NOT planned.”
It seems like whatever bar that was blocking Hannity from promoting his favored candidate has now been removed by the network.
