Conservative media giants Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity will appear at President Trump’s rally in Missouri on the eve of midterms Monday, Variety reported.
According to Variety, the Trump campaign is promoting the rally as an event that will feature special appearances from Limbaugh and Hannity, as well as country music singer Lee Greenwood, but Fox News told TPM that Hannity will only be hosting his show at the rally and interviewing the President.
Hannity pushed back on the Variety report in his tweet.
In spite of reports, I will be doing a live show from Cape Girardeau and interviewing President Trump before the rally. To be clear, I will not be on stage campaigning with the President. I am covering final rally for my show. Something I have done in every election in the past.

Hannity, who maintains a close friendship with the President, has been pegged as Trump’s “shadow” chief of staff who has a significant amount of influence over the President’s decisions.
