Trump Pauses Missouri Rally After Woman Faints, Crowd Starts Singing ‘Amazing Grace’

Voters cast their ballots early for the midterm elections at the Government & Judicial Center in Noblesville Ind. Tuesday Oct. 23 2018

TONIGHT, 9:00pm ET: Hannity One-on-One With President Trump on Election Eve

His work has also appeared in Salon, Raw Story, Truthdig, National Memo, Philadelphia Weekly, Democratic Underground, L.A. Weekly, MintPress News and many other publications.

When Hannity took the stage, he delighted the crowd by calling the reporters in the back of the room "fake news".

While Trump was in Missouri to stump for Senate candidate Josh Hawley, the rally was largely about him. "We have an extraordinary team of journalists helming our coverage tonight and we are extremely proud of their work", the statement read.

"FOX News does not condone any talent participating in campaign events", a statement from the network read.

Hannity, cable news' most popular personality and a vocal Trump defender, has twice been publicly rebuked by Fox for campaign activity.

"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".

"We were all told that Hannity was going to interview the president, but no one that I spoke with expected what happened last night", the employee said.

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.

"There's a woman on Saturday night who treats us very well", Trump said, praising Pirro's fiery opening monologues as "always brilliant".

Fox News would not comment on how the situation was 'addressed, ' or provide any information about Hannity's actions beyond its initial public comment.

On Twitter, Hannity claimed his appearance was not planned and that he went onstage after a request from Trump: "When the POTUS invited me on stage to give a few remarks last night, I was surprised, yet honored by the president´s request".

Their appearances caused CNN to question Fox's credibility.

Hannity broadcast his show from the site of the rally Monday, where he exhorted viewers to vote Republican and echoed a Trump campaign theme seen on banners: "Promises made, promises kept".

The interview with Trump came with only eight minutes left in the hour and was held in what appeared to be a backstage area of the hall. Following Hannity's brief remarks, Trump introduced Jeanine Pirro. It announced on Sunday that Hannity was to be a guest, along with radio commentator Rush Limbaugh and singer Lee Greenwood.

Despite Fox's disavowal, the Trump campaign continued to list Hannity as a guest throughout Monday at the link where people could seek tickets to the event.
