"They are jealous, they are envious, this isn't supposed to happen, you people are supposed to love them, not Trump", Limbaugh said.

In his remarks on stage, Hannity also publicly disparaged his colleagues in the press corps at the back of the rally. But the relationship between Fox News opinion programming and the Trump White House has raised ethical questions about whether the channel is reporting the news or promoting the president's agenda.

Trump's midterm efforts will not stop with his Missouri rally on Monday night.

She did not immediately add any clarification about how the network "addressed" the events, but Hannity tweeted soon after about his participation.

In a message that was heard loud and clear by opponents as well as supporters, President Trump urged voters Monday to act as if he was on the ballot for the midterm elections.

"If the radical Democrats take power, they will take a wrecking ball to our economy and to the future of our country", Trump said, prompting boos from the crowd.

"By the way, all those people in the back are fake news", he said to applause, invoking one of Trump's favorite epithets. "You see how they've behaved".

"They know, vaguely, that they're not supposed to have one of their hosts endorse a candidate or a party", CNN anchor Alisyn Camerota said.

He warned supporters on the telephone town hall to vote because "the press is very much considering it a referendum on me and us as a movement".

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. He described them as "livid". "We have an extraordinary team of journalists helming our coverage tonight and we are extremely proud of their work", the statement read.

'This was an unfortunate distraction and has been addressed'.

Fox News did not respond to a request for comment.

Hannity, for his part, released a statement on Twitter saying, "What I said in my tweet yesterday was 100% truthful". This was NOT planned.

Hannity has for years flouted the usual standards required of Fox News employees. "Anyone doing business with Fox News should worry about the network's inability to enforce even the most bare minimum standards".

While Hannity has been able to get away with breaking normal protocol, the network had previously attempted to reign him in.

Hannity took the stage and embraced Trump. "It's all fragile. We have to go out and we have to vote", the president said on a conference call, per Politico.
