tv   Hannity  FOX News  December 16, 2020 6:00pm-7:00pm PST

6:00 pm
support and with a bill like this, you're going to flat line this city. that is a serious concern that even some liberals are starting to speak up about. >> tucker: yeah. letting junkies live outside is not the answer. h hannity. >> hannity: thank you. 9:00 on the east, 6:00 in the eas east. alexandria cortez wants chuck shumer and nancy pelosi to step down. we'll take you the take straight ahead. also later, we will introduce to you the radical democrats that biden would love to surround himself with, which includes a top aide that just called republicans a bunch of f words. so nice.
6:01 pm
liberal love, tolerance, openness all on display this christmas season. but first we do begin tonight on capitol hill, where this morning senator ron johnson held an imperative important hearing on election integrity. johnson was on fire today. take a look. >> large percentage of the american public does not believe the november election results are legitimate. this is not a sustainable state of affairs in our democratic republic. there are many reasons for this high level skepticism. it starts with today's climate of hyper partisanship, which is only exacerbated by the persistent efforts to delegitimatize the results of a 2016 election. the corrupt investigation and media coverage of the russian collusion hoax reduced faith in our institutions. the on going suppression and censorship of conservative perspective by bias media and social media adds fuel to the flames. >> hannity: as senator johnson was pointing out, america's powerful institutions have been
6:02 pm
lying to you, the american people, for year. russia, russia, russia, ukraine, ukraine, ukraine. even playing politics with covid-19 and everything in between. it is not a surprise that we, the american people, are skeptical of the 2020 election results for all of the reasons we've chronicled night after night, including a lot of courageous patriotic whistle blowers. but tonight no democrat anywhere in america seems one bit concerned at all about what is widespread mistrust in america's key institutions. they don't care about the weeks of vote counting, the reliance on mail-in ballots they once told us were not accurate and rife for fraud, the mistreatment of election observers in each state. election laws changed in the middle of the game. one whittle blower one after another after another. senator johnson's democratic colleagues, remember, they accused him of hurting the committee because he dared to hold a hearing on the integrity
6:03 pm
of america's election system. that's when things, well, they got rightly heated. take a look. >> purr sraeuers of russian information. hillary clinton's campaign, the dnc, the ranking member peters accusing senator grassley and i of disseminating russian disinformation. that's where the disinformation is coming. that's where the false information, the lie, the false allegations. i can't sit by here and listen to this and say that this is not disinformation, this hearing today. this is getting information. we have to take a look at this to restore confidence in our election integrity. >> mr. chairman, i have got to respond to that. you're saying -- >> one, i had nothing to do with this report. >> you lied repeatedly in the press. disinformation, disinformation. that was an outright lie. >> hannity: finally people called out for their lives, like
6:04 pm
the media mob lied to you for years. big tech lied to you. now they're controlling information you can and cannot read. gary peters didn't care about the treat. he didn't tell the truth. he is one of the biggest collusion truthers in the entire country. just like the mob and the media. in fact, prior to the election, he accused senator johnson of spreading russian disinformation because senator johnson dared to issue a factual report about what is the biden foreign family. well, let's say corruption, international pay for play schemes. just another russia, russia, russia lie to dismiss truth about how the bidens conducted themselves. it is a syndicate, really. the johnson/grassley report turns out to be 100% accurate. it is true. zero experienced hunter biden now under a criminal investigation for tax evasion. that's the information big tech companies didn't want you to
6:05 pm
read about. as the johnson/grassley report laid out, hunter biden raked in millions and millions from sketchy foreign oligards, russia, during and after the time his father was serving as vice president. he raked in millions more in cash and equity from well connected members of china's ruling communist party. one chinese national paper, hunter's family to go on a $100,000 lavish shopping spree. all normal, right? china, right now our geopolitical foe. russia, bad factors. yep. iranian, bad actors. china, probably the most dangerous. country's ruling communist party is beyond malignant. they are hell bent on increasing their power, their wealth, at our expense. they don't care one bit about foreign election interference and add in their covid-19 cover-up, you can't travel to wuhan. can't travel out of wuhan if
6:06 pm
you're going to china, but you can travel from wuhan to the rest of the world. that pretty much tells the rest of the story. and the military aggression we've been watching in the pacific. we've been watching currency manipulation, the outright theft of intellectual property, their never ending espionage. we're looking at the likes of eric swalwell. china has proven time and time again it cannot be trusted, which now brings us to a very important hannity investigation, the information big tech tried to keep from you and the mob will never talk about. are the bidens, joe and hunter, compromised by these countries and particularly by the communist chinese? well, do they have a copy of hunter's laptop? let's start with the obvious. we know chinese nationals, why were they spending millions of dollars and giving private equity deals to hunter biden? no expertise that we can find. nothing on his resume that stood out to us. hunter had a long been battling
6:07 pm
addiction with drugs. he has no credible experience at all in private equity or in energy or in oil, gas, ukraine or russia or china. and these chinese nationals, what were they looking for? they were buying access, meaning buying influence. the question is just how much access did they get? do they have, for example, hunter's laptop, the one with the crack pipe falling asleep? i'm told far worse than that, which will be coming out at some point. what other intel do they have on joe, on hunter? breaking today fox news did obtain a 2017 e-mail from hunter biden addressed to the chairman of a major chinese energy company. no experience in energy whatsoever. in the e-mail, hunter, well, pretty audacious, asking for $10 million in order to quote, quickly and properly fund his investment strategy. here's the kicker. the note also included a very
6:08 pm
kind message. quote, best wishes from the entire biden family. i would assume that means joe. but today, despite a mountain of what is concerning evidence, the on going criminal probe, joe biden wants you to know his son did absolutely nothing wrong. why? because he says so. did anyone ever ask him about the picture on the front of the new york post? take a look. >> did hunter do nothing wrong? >> i'm confident. >> hannity: joe repeatedly stated he had no knowledge or involvement in his son's international business deals. stop. why did he leverage $1 billion tax dollars demanding a ukrainian prosecutor be fired in six hours? because the guy was investigating zero experience hunter. how would he know that? he just did it because he felt like firing the guy? had nothing to do with knowledge of hunter's being investigated?
6:09 pm
maybe, just maybe, joe is lying. maybe joe not only knew the details about hunter's deals, but actively encouraged and as, the big guy, perhaps even benefitted from them. senator lindsey graham, rightly, calling for a special counsel to be appointed. senior intel officials are adamant china did interfere in the 2020 election. russia did it in 2016. hillary bought the dirty russian misinformation dossier. could it possibly be that china actually wanted biden to win? kind of would make sense, wouldn't it? considering they were paying his son millions of dollars. remember, by the way, we have to take foreign interference seriously according to the media mob and democrats. for four years they are the ones obsessing over trump/russia interference that never occurred. but unlike the russia hoax and conspiracy theories, there's real evidence that the bidens
6:10 pm
took payments from china. so what kind of return did china get for their investment? here now with more, senate homeland security committee chairman ron johnson of wisconsin. senator johnson, let me go back to the conversation you had with mr. peters. did we not have four investigations for four years on people like that senator and the media and big tech disseminating disinformation? >> yeah, but we're supposed to forget that. forget the fact that for four years they never recognized that president trump was the president of the united states, that he was the legitimate president. when we see all kinds of very troubling, irregularities in this election, we're just supposed to ignore it and move on. well, i held that hearing today because i think the american people deserve the truth. they need to understand and have
6:11 pm
these irregularities explained. that's what we tried to do in the hearing. >> hannity: he discussed wire transfers, shopping sprees with chinese nationals. then berisma. hunter had no experience in gas, energy. why was he receiving all of that money? can you think of any reason? >> they were obviously selling influence. if it's true that there's nothing wrong, they can start proving it. why hasn't hunter turned over his tax returns to see if he ever did file an amended return claiming that $400,000? how about this. john solomon did an excellent report which, of course, is not being covered by the mainstream media, showing joe biden reported $3.2 million of net asets. he's made $60 million since he left the vice presidentsy. where did all the money go? based on his tax rates and what
6:12 pm
donations he made, he thought he would be reporting $9 million in assets. where did all the money go? enquiring minds want to know. >> hannity: am i believe putin is a hostile regime, iran, hostile regime, kim is hostile. why would the chinese do a deal with hunter biden? what were they expecting for their money? >> they are investing in influence. let's face it. we see how long-term thinking, how strategic they are. look what they did to congressman swalwell. they groomed this guy. here's an up and comer. let's fund his campaign. let's see how far he can go. they get him in place in the intelligence committee in the house. nancy pelosi knows about it.
6:13 pm
is that farfetched to think they were grooming hunter biden and his connections to his father? we don't even know all of the connections. our reports show troubling corrections. this hudson west, eefcus. that was hudson west. there are all kinds of hudson west companies. we've tracked over $150 million in transfer, back and forth. is that money laundering? hunter biden gets a diamond. they use diamonds in money laundering. that's what patrick holmes was convicted of. hunter biden was paid to unsuccessfully defend him. he spent time in jail for money laundering. pieces of the puzzle are coming together. it's getting obvious. i hope this u.s. attorney in delaware returns indictments soon. they've been working on this case for two years. it's about time. tell us what he's got. >> hannity: yeah. have you been briefed on the contents of hunter biden's
6:14 pm
laptop, sir? >> we do not have -- we don't have that hard drive. i heard all kinds of rumors. i have seen all kinds of things. we need to have it validated. >> hannity: i have never heard anyone deny that was likely. his lawyer was asking for his laptop back and on the front cover of "the new york post" had a picture of hunter biden with a crack pipe in his mouth. now my question is, is it likely that if they were doing these deals with the chinese, that the chinese could possibly have all of whatever compromising materials might be on there? is it possible that they have compromising materials on hunter biden, his relationship to his father? is it possible that both of them could be compromised by what is a hostile regime to the u.s.? >> i would say it's likely. that's what tony bobulinski said. compromised. there's no way that somebody who wants to work in the biden administration could ever get a
6:15 pm
security clearance if they have a fraction of the background of hunter biden. let's face it. he's a drug addict. that's very unfortunate. but he's traveling the world. he's doing drugs. he's got these computers. when we travel oversea, we have to put our real phones in a very secure bag that can't be hacked. we have burner phones. i doubt he did that. so, no, i think it's likely that his computers were hacked. we don't know what the chinese government has on hunter biden, what can be used as blackmail. that's why chuck grassley and i are trying to warn the american public, well before the election, but the news media supressed it, they didn't let people know. the news media, social media had far greater influence on this election. this was their candidate. they got him elected because of their suppression of the news. they had far greater election interference that russia could have hoped for in 2016. >> hannity: it's a scary scenario. i had the same experience in vietnam and helsinki in
6:16 pm
singapore. i was handed a new phone every day and my room was apparently swept when i wasn't there. senator, thank you for your good work. joining me now kayleigh mcenaney. we are really talking about massive amounts of money from countries that are not friendly with the u.s. we're talking about outright media censorship, big tech censorship. now it's all turning out to be true where the same people lectured us for a long time, telling us about russian interference with the trump campaign that was proven false. >> it's incredible. i asked reporter after reporter after reporter along the campaign trail, why aren't you covering this? i said, you have a laptop. you now have a first-hand witness in tony bobulinski, literally the business partner of hunter biden and you have a candidate in joe biden who will
6:17 pm
not deny the facts of this case. remarkably. if they're not true, all joe biden has to o do is say, this is not true, this is not false, as president trump did with russia gate. none of that happened. they did not deny it. the press didn't cover it. it was the biggest act of journalistic malpractice in four years since the russia hoax that they propelled in 2016. journalism has to get to a higher standing place in this country. the american people don't deserve censorship. the reporters today need to take a look in the mirror because they don't deserve to call themselves a reporter. in this point they are, in fact, activists. >> hannity: i want to go back to the wisconsin supreme court. one justice saying this is not the rule of law in wisconsin, it is the rule of judicial activism in inaction. the chief justice leading the dissent with a very powerful remark saying more members of this court will throw the cloak over numerous problems that will be repeated again and again until this court has the courage
6:18 pm
to correct them. apparently the courage doesn't exist, kayleigh. >> i want to praise that judge. that judge had courage. as was noted today by the nevada attorney in the hearings, he said none of our evidence has been refuted. in fact, it has been ignored. depositions in nevada, for instance, the opposing counsel from the big leftist activist firm, could not dispute that illegal votes had happened. we even had the numbers of them. they couldn't dispute it. instead a judge chose to ignore it. here was the clever little trick. it happened in nevada. when the claims were brought beforehand, when we warned and said, hey, mass mail-in voting is a fraud. we brought these claims to a court of law. they said, hey, your claim's not right. come back after the election. we bring it after the election to the same court and they say your claim is too late. it can't not be right and then be too late. those are the kind of tricks
6:19 pm
that happened. we've got to try to fix this because 2022 is on the line, 2024 and beyond. >> hannity: same ruling with one judge that president trump appointed on the supreme court in wisconsin, you should have brought this earlier. what, before the law was broken? before it was discovered? and the idea that texas wouldn't have standing when the votes of texans literally would be rendered meaningless if other people don't follow the law of the constitution. they would be disenfranchised. okay, kayleigh, thank you. lot at stake. a lot. in georgia, this big runoff, the two best pollsteres in america will be here to tell us where the race stands. also, senator kelly loffa will be here. stay with us. are you ok? it's just a cold. if you have high blood pressure,
6:20 pm
a cold is not just a cold. most cold medicines may raise blood pressure. choose coricidin hbp. the brand with a heart. for powerful cold relief without raising your blood pressure.
6:21 pm
6:22 pm
6:23 pm
6:24 pm
>> hannity: two weeks away georgia runoffs that will determine control of the u.s. senate. democrats are making it clear if they win those races, they are ready, willing and able, they will unleash what will be the most destructive radical left wing political forces on you, the american people. all eyes on the great state of georgia again tonight. these races are critical, critical to protect the country from a radicalism that would be unmatched in history. critical to preserve the president's work and legacy over the last four years. critical to continuing real investigations into real abuse of power, corruption. that means zero experience hunter and joe and everything else. georgia, if you care about radicals packing the supreme court, if you don't want open borders and amnesty, if you want energy independence, if you want
6:25 pm
lower taxes and less regulation, we're going to need you to engage and put aside whatever differences you may have with local weak rhino republicans in your state. they're irrelevant at this point. radicalism awaits this country in ways you cannot imagine and only you, the great state of georgia, can stop it. yesterday joe biden went to atlanta to try and drum up support for socialist jon ossoff and rafael warnock. nobody showed up. yet, we are supposed to believe that biden is the single most popular democrat of all time, more popular than and more votes than obama. 15 million more. 15 million more than hillary. i had no idea joe was so popular. frankly, i don't believe he is. so the people of georgia, i do understand and can totally relate to your disgust with your governor and secretary of state for their refusal to take the needed action to restore
6:26 pm
election integrity and fix obvious flaws with the voting process. that doesn't mean republicans, conservatives, freedom lovers and patriots can stay home. this is a tight race. conservatives and republicans in georgia need to show up, preserve the president's progress, stop the far left power grab now. you are the single most important state by far in the union. new poll shows a slight lead pretty much a dead even race with jon ossoff and david purdue a narrow lead for kelly loeffler. it is close. here to break it all down is the chief pollster at the trifalgar group. both got 2016 and 2020 the polls right. both of them, interestingly, are from the great state of georgia, so they know about the state.
6:27 pm
matt, your poll 49/48. too close to really call. well within the margin of error. >> sean, i have run enough races myself in georgia to know this is way too close. i'm looking at the turnout right now that we're seeing in early voting and the absentee ballots are coming in. this will be razor thin. very tough. in the end, pollster for ronald reagan says the most popular politician he has seen in his life time is donald trump. he'll have to push these two over the edge. they're great candidates but they can't match trump for turnout. turnout is what the republicans need now more than anything else in georgia. >> hannity: robert, i don't think i know any pollster who factored in a 3.7% margin for fraud. you did. you, too, have this race very close. where do you see it now? >> it still is exactly as he
6:28 pm
said. it's extremely close. i would say it's a jump ball. it's -- loeffler has a slight edge, but it's certainly outside of the realm of anything that can be put to bed. early voting, as matt said, has leaned a little bit democratic at this point. it's down from 2020, november, and this far out, but it definitely is going to play a factor. but this thing is extremely close. no laws have been changed so we're expecting lots of ballots with missing signatures and all kinds of hijinx again. >> hannity: you both know the state well. your advice for both candidates. what do they need to do to pull this off, considering everything that is at stake here? >> they need to first of all make their ads localized. the atlanta city jail is virtually being shut down. our poll shows people can't stand that. they also need to cling to
6:29 pm
donald trump. donald trump is what will get them over the edge. they've got to get that turnout in central, middle and north georgia. >> hannity: your advice, robert? >> i saw more reaction to the statement that perdue put up about the atlanta braves and regarding changing mascot names after what happened in cleveland. i think these politicians need to keep in mind elections aren't won on the issues politicians care about. they're won the issues voters care about. the voters care about this issue and the braves. they stand with them. >> hannity: i care very much going back to georgia in the what do you have, what do you have? i'll take french fries, chili dogs and onion rings. thank you. we're continuing to learn more and more about the radicalism of both candidates especially rafael warnock and his embrace of new extremism inside the democratic party. for example, congress woman
6:30 pm
omar, lindor sosor who is a radical anti-semite teamed up for a fund-raiser in the candidacy of warnock. he's compared the israeli prime minister to george wallace repeatedly has disparraged police officers, even obstructing an investigation into abuse claims that occurred at the summer camp he ran in maryland. while the charges were later dropped, police report shed a lot of light on what was an extremely uncooperative and frankly disruptive warnock. the more we learn, the more we feel that warnock is not fit to serve.
6:31 pm
>> rafael warnock attacks our military. >> the kind of thug mentality. >> warnock attacks our police. >> somebody's got to open up the jails. >> rafael warnock is dangerous. >> hannity: joining us now senator kelly loeffler of georgia. senator, welcome to the program. lot at stake here. what do you have to say to the country and the people of georgia? >> well, sean, great to be with you. future of the country is on the ballot here january 5th. we have to hold the line in georgia. we know the country is counting on us. we heard chuck shumer say it. now we take georgia, then we change america. radical liberal rafael warnock is chuck shumer's radical agent of change. look, the media's refusing to ask questions of him. there's no one willing to do it and he's not willing to answer those questions. i asked him in the debate if he would renounce socialism. he refused to do that. he refused to answer those questions that you asked.
6:32 pm
what was the nature of the child abuse investigation that he obstructed? georgians need to know these answers, because these answers could be disqualifying for serving in the u.s. senate. >> hannity: i also see a lot of money coming from outside the great state of georgia from a lot of hollywood stars that i think less than two years ago were talking about boycotting the great state of georgia. i lived there myself. you may or may not know. my big question is, january 5th is not the exact ideal date to have an election. next week is christmas, then new year's week, then the election. not exactly an ideal time because the voters are out. >> it's always a good time to defend our freedoms, to stand up for the constitution and everything we've achieved in this country and everything we need to protect for future generations. i'm on my third state wide tour, the fire wall tour. i'm getting out across the state, as is david perdue. georgians are fired up.
6:33 pm
we're asking them to vote early. if georgians don't vote and president trump was here last week. he said to georgians, vote for david perdue and kelly loeffler. you have to do it. he's absolutely right. if we don't vote, we could see the election of america's first marxist senator in this country right here in georgia. that's why we are the fire wall. >> hannity: i love you're calling it the fire wall. i will not ask the good conservative republican patriots, freedom lovers and trump supporters, as matt was pointing out, in georgia that are maybe annoyed with their local politicians, state elected politicians. this is too important. this transcends every issue to me. and they would literally be the rubber stamp for the most radical agenda. do the people of georgia know exactly how high the stakes are as you go county to county, as senator perdue goes county to
6:34 pm
county. do they understand, this is real? >> i believe they do, sean. they know what's at stake here. they're frustrated. the president's frustrated. we're frustrated. we're being very methodical to make sure this election is free, fair, trusted and accurate. they also know they have to get out to vote. if we vote, we will win. if they don't vote, we could lose the country. that's how serious this is. georgians know that. i know they know that. the turnout at our events has been great. >> hannity: senator, have we learned anything from november 3rd, for example, are the drop boxes being watched? are they being videotaped? number two, are there accommodations being made that every ballot, according to georgia law, partisan observers have the right to watch the vote count? that didn't happen on november 3rd. will it happen on january 5th? do we know for sure that these things now are going to be resolved? >> we're in the courts right
6:35 pm
now. we're working on that. we have 4,000 additional poll watchers. we're taking every possible action to make sure it's free, fair and trusted. >> hannity: all right, senator. thank you. when we come back, you're not going to believe what one of joe biden's aide just called republicans and conservatives. pretty disgusting insult. thought they were the party of inclusion. also, congress woman cortez turning her back on schumer and pelosi saying bye-bye, time for them to go. we have reaction to that all straight ahead.
6:36 pm
hi sam, this is rachel from your dad's oncology office. unfortunately, we are still limiting in-person appointments due to the pandemic and we'll need to move your father's visit to a later date. we're sorry. hola, papa. american cancer society helpline. how can i help you?
6:37 pm
6:38 pm
6:39 pm
- i'm lea.steve. society helpline. and we live in north pole, alaska. - i'm a retired school counselor. [lea] i'm a retired art teacher. [steve] we met online about 10 years ago. as i got older, my hearing was not so good so i got hearing aids. my vision was not as good as it used to be, got a change in prescription. but the this missing was my memory. i saw a prevagen commercial and i thought, "that makes sense." i just didn't have to work so hard to remember things. prevagen. healthier brain. better life. >> hannity: now despite joe biden's phoney, vain calls for unity, staffers supporters continue to reveal their hate for all thins trump, gop or we
6:40 pm
the people. his pick for deputy chief of staff said the primary people would mock biden do you think he can work with republicans. i'm not saying they're a bunch of beep, beep, beep. and mitch mcconnell's terrible. so much for unity, togetherness and openness. of course, that never ending stream of vicious rhetoric is not new. listen to the media mob talking about president trump supporters we the people just the last week. take a look. >> what is it that we saw this weekend in washington? what was it? they weren't wearing brown and black uniforms like they would have in italy or in germany in the 1920s or 1930s, but they're the same people. >> these are people who, if donald trump said i'm going to trash you on twitter unless you go smack your mom in the face, they would go smack their moms in the face and try to explain it to them afterwards.
6:41 pm
>> maybe there are 60 million jerks in this country. maybe that's the sad truth. joe biden is doing everything right. when you see that sign, maybe there's a chunk of us that really suck as human beings. >> joe biden is doing every single thing right and everybody else a bunch of nazis and fascists and jerks that suck. we shop at wal-mart. meanwhile, deep divisions inside the democratic party, they are worsening as the real speaker of the house, alexandria ocasio-cortez no longer mincing words saying in a recent podcast, it is time for schumer and pelosi to go. hell's kind of frozen over. i agree. >> they pass record shattering military expenditures but can't get 1200 bucks to suffering americans. >> yep. >> i know you've been on the right side of this, but i'm can issing, are you ready to say pelosi and schumer need to go? >> i mean, i think so.
6:42 pm
the answer is yes. the answer is we need to shift power. we need to make sure that we have a transition of power in the leadership of the democratic party. >> hannity: joining us now author of a brand new best seller, pete hegseth along with ari fleisher. i agree with alexandria ocasio-cortez. but it's very revealing when democrats talk about conservatives, trump supporters, republicans, isn't it? it's how they really feel, right? >> sean, i really look at this the same way i do when reporters go on twitter and we can see what their actual leanings are and the bias comes pouring out. i'm so glad that she said that because republicans need to go into the new biden administration with eyes wide open. joe biden is not a bipartisan leader. he has never been one. he is a very partisan man. he can talk that line. the press will let him get away
6:43 pm
with talking that line. we need to remember the people surrounding him and he himself, their leanings will be to cut republicans down at every stretch that they can, embarrass republicans. i'm glad she said it. now we know who we're dealing with. >> hannity: i don't think this is a bold prediction, pete, but i'm just saying. they're going to have whatever phoney inauguration, in other words, they won't invite people there so it will be virtual. virtual. let's say that happens. virtual inauguration. then they start implementing the radical views that all these democratic socialists are talking about. then biden's going to be hiding. then you got president trump in exile which could turn out to be their worst nightmare. the media, i'm going to suspect after the first 100 days will be like, you miss me yet? i think they're going to miss the guy they woke up hating
6:44 pm
every day a lot. >> they like their ratings and they like the headline. there's no doubt about that. listen, the virtual biden presidency, as ari eluded to, is the virtual moderate presidency. of course they're captured by the far left. they absolutely hate trump supporters. the calls for unity are fake and false. they will go after just as they did the president for the last four years, anyone who supports him. you talk about the truth of reconciliation commissions. that's where their heart is when it comes to us. so when i look at a biden administration and the infighting of alexandria ocasio-cortez and all that, our dear friend rush limbaugh wrote an op ed about the obama administration in 2009 for usa today. he wrote four words. i hope he fails. ultimately because joe biden is the trojan horse for the left, i hope he fails. i hope he's myered in that infighting that alexandria
6:45 pm
ocasio-cortez is going to bring, incapable of delivering to the left, incapable of finding the false unity he claims he's going to bring after what they've done to trump supporters. that is a forecast. and then you will have donald trump, with his 75 million supporters behind him, prepared to say, this is the america we love. you remember those taxes that were low? do you remember those borders that were secure? remember china, we were willing to stare down? maybe that's something you didn't give up because the ballot box wasn't secure, but you maybe want to take a second look at that. be careful when you get your way potentially into the white house. that's what he faces. >> i'm looking at it as an intramural battle, ari. and that is the radical socialists, they're going to demand they're listened to. biden will be beholden to them. on the other hand, then you're going to have republicans that maybe didn't learn the lessons of trump. that is a republican party that keeps its word, fights for what they believe in and ultimately
6:46 pm
is a party that is of working people, men and women and minorities and that believes in freedom and an open economy and america first. republicans who want to go back to the establishment days are dead in the water, from my perspective. >> i'm convinced the politics of the future breaks down the following way. democrats are a left, far left struggle. i see an ideological split in their party. the republican is more inside establishment versus outsider popular. donald trump has won the hearted and soul of the republican party. that's the split in the two parties. democrats, a true old fashion ideological dog fight, and it's actually the socialists against the liberals when it comes to alexandria ocasio-cortez and her growing group now in congress including corey bush of missouri who just got added to the list of socialists in congress.
6:47 pm
so growing socialism for the democrats versus longstanding stagnant liberalism inside the democratic party. >> hannity: they'll also be the party of the coastal elites. i think that has now emerged as their reality. thanks very much. coming up, barack obama asked again about his stance on defunding the police. we'll give you his answer. leo 2.0, larry elder 1.0 as we continue. to live with schizophrenia? i am a good parent. jared? i'm hearing the most awful things, people shouting at me. it's ok. when you live with schizophrenia like us, it can feel like you're living in a different world. you should definitely talk to your doctor and ask about fanapt. ok. fanapt is approved for the treatment of schizophrenia in adults. in clinical trials, fanapt significantly improved symptoms of schizophrenia compared to placebo.
6:48 pm
cynthia, are you ok? i feel like everyone's out to get me. fanapt may change your heart rhythm which could elevate risk of sudden death. your doctor will consider this when deciding among treatments and may prescribe another medication first or may instruct you to take a smaller dosage of fanapt. remember you're not alone, there is help. call 8557 fanapt

>> hannity: more hypocrisy from the left. president obama walked back his comments on the defund the police messaging because he faced a backlash from the radical party. >> people assumed that somehow i
6:52 pm
was making an argument that that's why we didn't get, you know, a bigger democratic majority. that actually was not the point i was making. i was making a very particular point around if we, in fact, want to translate the very legitimate belief that how we do policing needs to change. if we say defund the police not just white folks, but michelle's mom might say, if i'm getting robbed, who am i going to call and is somebody going to show up? >> hannity: all right. here to react larry elder 1.0 and leo terrell, 2.0. looking at all these interviews of barack obama, leo, and he mentions race a lot lately. what is your reaction to it? >> thank you for that question. and i really want to answer that
6:53 pm
question. first of all, barack obama, sean, is a dinosaur within the democratic party. he is rwrestling with the word defund the police. defund according to corey bush is to defund the police. now the race issue. it's not a question about michelle's mom and white people. police protection is an american issue, not an issue based on race. what he's trying to do is walk it back because he's out of step with the democratic party. they want to eliminate the police. minnesota, l.a., the vice president-elect once took away $150 million in support. the issue of defunding the police, that's what the democrats want to do. barack obama is having a hard time with this new socialist democratic party. one other point, sean. i'm in washington, d.c. at the trump hotel and i got the gift that you, larry and i decide to give president trump tomorrow. i'll deliver this to him
6:54 pm
tomorrow. >> hannity: larry, when he talks about people felt that they were losing status when he was the president, not because of anything i did, but but a of the fact i didn't look like all the other presidents previously, a sense that my very presence in the white house triggered a deep seeded panic, a sense that the natural order has been disrupted. i mean, he really goes into depth and detail on this. he won two national elections, but i guess joe is more popular because he got 15 million more votes according, if you believe, the numbers. >> well, sean, barack obama knows it. he knows there isn't systemic racism on the part of the police. he knows the data are not there. you can't find anybody more left wing than mark lamar hill. barack obama, the politician knows he has to get black people
6:55 pm
angry and stirred up and get guilty white liberals angry and stirred up. that's why he plays the race card. the normal barack obama, the one that went to the finest prep school in hawaii and ivy league education and challenged hillary and won. he knows america is the land of the free, home of the brave but he has to convince you systemic racism remains a problem in america. the normal barack obama knows damn well it's a con. >> hannity: where's larry's hat, leo? >> this is going to the president in care of larry elders. >> hannity: no, no. i want larry 1.0. i want a larry hat. >> that hat does not exist. i have been watching this right now. guys, times are tough.
