Fox News Trump Town Hall with Sean Hannity Scores Well Below CNN Trump Event from Last Month


Donald Trump, perpetual indictee, appeared with his bff Sean Hannity in a Fox News Town Hall last night.

The show– and it was a show not a news event — scored 2.85 million viewers.

But that was far less than Trump’s Town Hall in May on CNN with Kaitlan Collins. That event brought in 3.33 million.

Is Trump’s base done with him? Do they realize anything he does on Fox News is staged, scripted, and approved by him?

When the Hannity hour was over, it should be noted that nearly 1 million viewers tuned out of Fox as well. Greg Gutfeld at 10pm fell to 1.9 million. MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell came within 300,000 pairs of eyes.

Earlier in the evening, with Fox having moved around its schedule, MNBC’s Ari Melber finished in a virtual tie at 6pm with Fox’s Bret Baier.
