Donald Trump & Sean Hannity to Host Town Hall Meeting on African American Concerns
By Daily Kos
When you are trying to reach black voters, where do you go? Well, if you are Donald Trump, you head to a Fox News event hosted by your buddy Sean Hannity:
Donald Trump is slated make yet another trip to Cleveland, and is scheduled to film a “town hall” style event on Wednesday with Fox News personality Sean Hannity at the Cleveland Heights church of a local pastor who has been a visible Trump supporter.
The website for the New Spirit Revival Center in Cleveland Heights, 3130 Mayfield Road, advertises a “Midwest Values and Vision Pastors Leadership Conference” with Trump, hosted by the church’s pastor, Rev. Darrell Scott, that will begin at 9 a.m. on Sept. 21. Scott has not returned a message, but he told WKYC’s Tom Beres that Trump “will meet with a large statewide group of pastors from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m.”
The website also advertises a “town hall meeting on African-American concerns” that is scheduled to begin at 10:30 a.m. A Fox News spokeswoman said the meeting will air on Hannity’s 10 p.m. show on Wednesday night. While she said the town hall meeting will be closed to other media, the spokeswoman did not immediately know whether members of the general public could attend. Officials with the Trump campaign declined to share additional details about the event.
Meanwhile, several more free hours of publicity from the Fox News machine for Donald Trump. At least Hannity doesn’t hide it:
Trump has appeared on Hannity’s program more than any host in cable news recently. Hannity, a conservative, has publicly endorsed Trump.
“I’m not hiding the fact that I want Donald Trump to be the next president of the United States,” the 54-year-old television and radio host told The New York Times last month. “I never claimed to be a journalist.”
