Fox News host Sean Hannity announced on his May 31 broadcast that he would be voting for Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump (video below).
During an interview with Trump, Hannity said, "I am not the corrupt press. I’m actually the conservative here ... I'm an opinion show. And I don’t hold back that I’ll be voting for Donald Trump in November."
Earlier in the interview, Hannity asked Trump where he was in the process of selecting his cabinet positions (which would have to be approved by Congress) and vice-presidential running mate.
"With the vice president, as you know, probably if you think about it there are ten, and maybe you boil that down to five, but some people that are really, really good and we'll see what happens," Trump said.
Later, during the same broadcast, Hannity told Herman Cain: "I said journalism is dead in 2008. It’s dead," notes Think Progress.
