Trump upbeat despite House loss, will hold news conference

It was especially surprising because earlier in the day Hannity said he would not be campaigning with the president, CNN noted.

The network issued a statement on the matter via a spokesperson on Tuesday.

It's considered standard for employees of news organizations not to engage in political campaign activities so their outlets do not appear unfair; some journalists go so far as to not vote at all for this reason. We have an extraordinary team of journalists helming our coverage tonight and we are extremely proud of their work.

On Tuesday, Trump called House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi, a conversation that her office said included congratulations and a nod to her pitch for bipartisanship.

In an interview Hannity conducted with Trump just before appearing on stage, the president told him, "I never miss your opening monologue".

"I love these rallies", Limbaugh said, bringing up Hillary Clinton so he could hear a raucous "lock her up" cheer.

After Trump called Hannity to the stage at the rally, the long-time Fox News host and unapologetic Trump supporter told the Republican crowd that reporters covering the event "are fake news".




A spokeswoman for Fox News did not immediately return a request for comment. "Everyone you know... get them out there to vote for Donald Trump and all the people who are running for the Republican party".

Initially, Hannity and the network said that Hannity would simply air his show from the rally venue in Cape Girardeau, Missouri, and follow that with an interview with Trump. Pirro, a former NY state attorney general who has a weekend show on Fox, spoke after him.

Hannity was rebuked by Fox in 2010 when the Tea Party advertised he would be appearing at one of its rallies.

"I thought it was very close to complete victory", Trump said, adding that he would "almost have to think about" whether he would have preferred Republicans to retain a slim majority in the House instead of their outright loss. There is nothing real about what Fox News reports on any given day.

Sean Hannity's has stated repeatedly that he is not a journalist.

The statement made no mention of another Fox host, former judge Jeanine Pirro, who was also on stage at the Missouri event.

What was so disgusting about Fox News on Monday night was the way Hannity operated straight out of the propaganda handbook using techniques to mock and vilify opponents that had been used by the publicity machines of fascist leaders since the 1930s in Europe during the early days of electronic mass communications.
