As the News Blender reported last night President Trump held his last MAGA rally ahead of Tuesday’s midterm election day. During the event FOX News show host and radio personality Sean Hannity took the stage briefly where he called pool reports fake news, said he was surprised to be asked to speak on stage, and said President Trump’s presidency is defined by “promises made, promises kept.”

Prior to his appearance on stage with President from Cape Girardeau, Missouri, Hannity blasted reports that he was expected to speak at the President’s rally.

Host of Fox News show former Judge Jeanine Pirro also took the stage praising the economy, and President Trump’s handling of the economy and urged everyone to vote for “Donald Trump,” on Tuesday. President Trump introduces her as “Justice Jeanine.”

Tuesday Hannity defended his actions during the rally via Twitter.

He also tried to clarify his remarks regarding his “fake news,” comment.

The two tweets came around the time that FOX News released a statement rebuking the appearance by two of the media personalities, via Politico, “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.”

It’s unclear based on the statement what steps FOX New has taken to address the incident.

The Washington Post reported on Monday that President Trump’s campaign chief operating officer Michael Glassner, listed Sean Hannity as a “special guest” for Monday nights closing rally, in a Sunday statement, an unnamed Fox spokeswoman told the Post, she “didn’t know how that impression had been created.” Glassner “did not immediately return a request,” to the Post to clarify Hannity’s role in Monday nights rally.

For what it’s worth: Sean Hannity has routinely criticized what he calls “Liberal Media Bias,” on both his FOX show and radio show.
