Hannity was seen, along with other luminaries like Benghazi guy Mark Geist and lunatic Ted Nugent, in the eight-minute long video, a snippet of which can be seen above. The full video can be seen at YouTube, here.

Hannity is also scheduled to host a town hall with Trump tonight on Fox News, which is pretty much the equivalent of an infomercial for Trump anyway.

After Fox News host Sean Hannity appeared in a pro-Donald Trump political video over the weekend, the network will prohibit him from appearing in promotional political materials through the end of the election, a spokesperson said Tuesday.

“We were not aware of Sean Hannity participating in a promotional video and he will not be doing anything along these lines for the remainder of the election season,” the spokesperson said in a statement to POLITICO.

On Sunday, Trump’s presidential campaign uploaded an eight-minute video that showed a number of conservative figures expressing their support of the Republican candidate. One of those figures included the Fox News show host, who spoke for about 30 seconds expressing his support of the candidate. The Washington Post’s Erik Wemple was the first to report on the video.
