Hannity Appearance at Trump Rally Has Fox Hosts Fuming

Hannity has drawn the ire of his fellow Fox employees, who spoke to CNN on the condition of anonymity.

Last night was the final engagement for President Trump’s run of “Make America Great Again” rallies in the lead-up to the 2018 midterm elections.

Hailed as “the most important election of our lifetimes”, (a generic and overused line if there ever was one), 2018’s contest will likely be seen as a referendum on Donald Trump’s time in the White House, as well as a barometer for the democratic party’s re-admittance back into the mainstream of society as a whole.  Currently, the left is engaged in an ugly radicalization that has brought their fringes to the center in order to wreak havoc under the banner of “resistance”.  Mobs, not jobs, as the President is suddenly fond of saying.

With the latest rally being his most ambitious to date, Trump brought a cavalcade of special guests out on the road with him including longtime confidante and campaign manager Kellyanne Conway and White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

The appearance of Fox News host Sean Hannity, however, has many from Hannity’s own network more than mildly annoyed.

“People throughout the company think a new line was crossed,” one senior Fox News employee told CNN Business on Tuesday.

“It disturbs me to my core,” said another senior Fox News employee, who added, “I am so f—ing mad.”

“We were all told that Hannity was going to interview the president, but no one that I spoke with expected what happened last night,” added a third senior Fox News employee. “I’m aghast as are a number of other people.”

The Trump campaign had promoted Hannity over the weekend as a “special guest” at Trump’s final rally before Tuesday’s midterm election. But a Fox News spokesperson told CNN Business and other news outlets soon after that Hannity would simply be at the rally in Missouri to broadcast his show and cover the event for the network. Hannity offered an identical message in a Monday morning tweet, saying, “To be clear, I will not be on stage campaigning with the president.”

Yet just hours later, Hannity and Pirro were both on stage with Trump, energizing the Republican base ahead of Election Day.

Fox News released a statement calling the issue a “distraction” and admitting that it had been addressed internally.

White House Agrees to Paid Parental Leave for Federal Workers, Dems Agree to Space Force

Playing nice before an impeachment vote?

It looks like the powers that be in Washington have managed to agree on something, for a change. Dems will give President Trump his “Space Force” in exchange for three months of paid parental leave for all federal workers. Here’s the deal, via The Hill: The White House and House Democrats have reportedly reached a tentative deal to authorize the creation of the Space Force, a priority for the Trump administration first outlined in an executive order by the president earlier this year. The Washington Post reported Sunday that Democrats and White House negotiators had struck a bargain that would authorize the creation of the agency in exchange for a policy establishing 12 weeks of paid parental leave for federal workers. Continued: It isn’t clear if the plan will be able to win enough Republican support to pass the Senate, according to the Post, but the plan appears to have the backing of both President Trump and Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), a rare moment of compromise amid the House’s impeachment hearings. At the end of the day, Trump was the right man for the job. He has a big mouth and he likes to use it. He won’t apologize for being brash. He doesn’t care if liberals see things his way or not. He’s determined. He’s focused on making America a better place than she was under Barack Obama. And he’s winning.

CNN Ratings Plummet to Three-Year Low, But Fox News Is Still Dominating [Details]

Does this come as a surprise?

CNN has hit a five-year low in viewership among a key advertising demographic. That’s pretty bad. But it gets even worse for the far-left network, as Fox News continues to remain strong. Here are the details, via Washington Examiner: CNN ratings have continued to plummet with the company averaging a nearly three-year low in viewership last week. […] Fox News averaged 1.3 million viewers for its programming that week, and its prime-time listings brought in 2.2 million viewers on average and 303,000 demographic viewers. If you want to claim that your network is fair and balanced and you only report the facts, then the president of the network shouldn’t be caught on video telling employees to push impeachment stories regarding President Trump. Then again, CNN hasn’t been a reliable news source for a long while now and ratings drive that point home on a regular basis. James O’Keefe has unveiled what just might be his most jaw-dropping video to date. And CNN can’t be thrilled about it. After all, it exposes their anti-Trump, anti-conservative bias once and for all – and it comes straight from the head honcho. At this rate, no matter how hard the left tries, it would appear Trump has 2020 all but in the bag. Great for America, bad for the left. But what’s bad in the eyes of the left is usually good for the left – they just can’t see it. Liberals. SMH. BREAKING: New leaked video from inside CNN: President Jeff Zucker tells employees to push “impeachment” and that all of CNN’s stories should be about “moves towards impeachment” One of CNN’s employees says Zucker has a “personal vendetta against Trump” https://twitter.com/RealSaavedra/status/1183780647522856960?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1183780647522856960&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.weaselzippers.us%2F435181-project-veritas-video-cnns-jeff-zucker-directing-employees-to-push-impeachment%2F
