On the same day Donald Trump lambasted the press for negative publicity he received for raising what he says is $5.6 million for veterans, Sean Hannity had Trump on his Fox News show Hannity and announced he’ll be voting for Trump in November’s general election for president.
Hannity assured Trump, “I am not the corrupt press. I’m actually the conservative here,” a statement to which Trump agreed.
The talk show host continued, “Well, I’m an opinion show … and I don’t hold back that I’ll be voting for Donald Trump in November.”

The announcement is the first time Hannity has declared his support for his fellow New Yorker and presidential candidate.
Hannity, in the past, has been accused by other former Republican candidates of being soft on Trump. Perhaps now that all of the other candidates have dropped out of the race, Hannity feels safe revealing his support for Trump.

As Western Journal reported, Red State called out Hannity for what it perceived as special treatment of Trump in an article titled, “Who Has Sean Hannity Interviewed 41 Times Without Making News? Can You Guess?” Red State’s article even portrayed Hannity as working so fervently for Trump he may as well be a member of Trump’s campaign staff.
Red State hasn’t commented about Hannity’s declaration of intent to vote for Trump but has called the talk show host with the second-highest viewer ratings in the country a Trump “bootlicker” for bowing at the “altar of Donald Trump.”
