President Trump had the big guns out at his closing rally in Missouri last night. It was a night of stars with the show me state’s favorite son Rush Limbaugh leading the charge, Sarah Sanders, Ivanka Trump and Kellyanne Conway were there as well.
Bright stars to be sure but one conservative star eclipsed them all and his name is Sean Hannity. Hannity has long been a defender and friend to Trump – even before Trump was a politician.
It seems since Trump’s historic win the two have developed a strong bond with rumors that Trump really trusts Hannity’s advice and with Sean not afraid to speak truth to power.
That is what a president he needs – honest brokers – and it doesn’t hurt to be almost as popular as Trump himself with the audience.
Sean took the stage to a raucous reception and promptly brought down the house. As reported by The Daily Mail:
Sean Hannity took to President Donald Trump’s campaign stage here on Monday evening, despite tweeting earlier in the day he would be appearing with the president.
And it was the Fox News host who garnered some of the biggest applause of the night when echoed one of Trump’s favorite attack lines.
‘By the way all those people in the back are fake news,’ he said as the crowd roared. He also echoed Trump’s campaign slogan ‘promises made, promises kept.
But that wasn’t all, Jeanine Pirro was at the rally. From The Hill: Fox News hosts Sean Hannity and Jeanine Pirro joined President Trump on stage at his final campaign rally of the midterms, singing the president’s praises and urging attendees to vote Republican.
“I have a few people that are right out here, and they’re very special,” Trump said, teasing their appearances. “They’ve done an incredible job for us. They’ve been with us from the beginning, also.”
Trump, who has a well-known penchant for Fox News programming, proceeded to call Hannity on stage, even though the Fox News host tweeted earlier in the day that he “will not be on stage campaigning with the President.”
And Trump wowed the crowd with more heavy hitters. From The Daily Caller: The president stopped and looked to the side of the stage, and recognized perhaps the two most well-known women in his administration. “I have two other great women with me. You’ve never heard of them,” Trump said, “They’re very shy — Kellyanne Conway and Sarah Huckabee Sanders.”
The crowd went wild as the two women took the stage. Trump hugged both of them and invited the two to speak. Sanders looked reluctant at first but took the podium and bent the mic downward
She began with an apology. “You’ll have to forgive Kellyanne and I. We’re a little speechless because we’re not used to friendly crowds.”
