6:00 pm
with drag queen story hour and we should not be surprised. >> tucker: that's the most interesting thing i've heard in a while. pete hegseth, congrats on the book. thank you. here's a question, are the nazis in the battalion vaccinated? we will look into it. back tomorrow night. welcome to hannity. we are tracking multiple major stories including president biden's upcoming trip to saudi arabia. 2019, candidate joe biden vowed to make saudi arabia pay the price for killing the journalist jamal khashoggi. referred to the crown prince is a pariah. proclaimed "there's very little social redeeming value of the present government of saudi arabia." all right, joe. you go to saudi arabia, are you going to stand up and say to his face? write to the crown prince? are you going to make and pay
6:01 pm
the price like you promised or will joe biden get on his knees and beg and plead and hem and haw for oil that he is unwilling to drill for in america. the answer is likely obvious. we will have more on this with former secretary of state mike pompeo. along with the look into saudi arabia's attempt to cleanse their toxic image, multi-billion-dollar golf tournament featuring record setting payouts to major american golfers. and newly unearthed audio that's been extracted from a laptop from hell shows hunter biden bragging about the influence he has over his father. we have that tape straight ahead. also we are monitoring primary results in four states, south carolina, north dakota, nevada, maine along with a runoff in texas. we'll keep you posted on the numbers as they come intimate and thankfully the midterms are only five months away and we have a chance to stop the
6:02 pm
devastated policies of joe biden. with democrats running the entire show and the washington swamp, this country is now barreling into what will be a prolonged period of economic pain, economic suffering, the national average for a gallon of gas is up yet again for the 18th straight day. well over five bucks a gallon nationally, that's the average. diesel is much higher. nearly $6. we'll have a lot more on this. inflation is also still on the rise. the stock market is plunging dramatically. guess what. we are back to where joe started on day one. the dow jones average down another 150 points today. five days in a row. significant declines four out of the five and tomorrow could likely be much worse. the fed expected once again raise interest rates either have a point or a massive three quarters of a point interest rate hike and will continue to hike rates for the foreseeable future. goldman sachs critics as many as
6:03 pm
11 in the next two years and that means well, new home sales will go down. new home construction, yeah, that's about to come to a standstill. sales of existing homes will plummet. home values, sorry, i know many of you recently got valuations. they will head south fast too as well. the higher the rates, fewer loans, fewer americans that will be out there buying houses. combine that with inflation, spiking gas prices, this country, we are all headed into a very scary place. already two-thirds of the country's living paycheck to paycheck. former obama economic advisor, i don't always agree with him but he's been right on every item up to this point as it relates to biden's economy, lawrence summers predicted a recession is imminent in the next year or two. remember, summers was the one that accurately corrected the administration predicting that the current inflation crisis was in fact real when they were
6:04 pm
saying it was only transitory. so now with everything imploding around him, well, joe biden, your president, is outraged. not about the economy. he seems to think his economic policies are a historic success. no, today joey was matted you, we, the american people for complaining about the inflation his policies cause. why are you mad at me, joe? >> i don't want to hear anymore of these lies about reckless spending. we are changing people's lives. >> sean: joey is mad. he is all animated. must've had his wheaties this morning. it wasn't just biden's out-of-control spending that cost inflation. it was joe's war on the oil and gas industry on behalf of of course the climate alarmist cult that is the new green deal socialist party that he is beholden to. by the way, i keep coming back to oil and gas. why? because energy independence is the single number one thing that
6:05 pm
we can do to bring down the costs at the pump and lower diesel prices. lower diesel prices, that lowers the price of every item you buy at every store you shop at. that's not going to happen. this administration, they put their priority on the climate alarmist cult, not on you, we, the american people. listen to what the bidens kleinman czar, john kerry, had to say. >> worry driving the thoughts. we need more drilling. we need to go back to a call. no, we don't. we absolutely don't. we have to prevent a false narrative from entering into this or again, pun intended, we are cooked. >> sean: carry, like everyone else wants gas prices to be hig. it's a means to an end. they want you to consume less energy. they want you to travel less.
6:06 pm
they want to force you to buy an electric car and just last week biden's energy secretary, jennifer granholm said americans can save money on gas by purchasing a $60,000 electric car. everybody got an extra 60 grand laying around? i think we need to hire d programmers for these climate obsessed cult maniacs. this climate socialist cult has so indoctrinated all of them they have lost every bit of common sense that they ever had if they ever had any. the simple answer, we have a solution. go back to the trump policies of energy independence. that would mean they would need to green light the keystone xl pipeline. we can get 900,000 barrels of canadian oil a day. that will help lower the price of the pump. that's an easy one. the alberta premier said it would be done by now if joe didn't put a restriction on it. we can lift the exploration fan man that he put in place and on more. we can end joe biden's boss on
6:07 pm
permits on federal lands and being the paris climate records. oh, that's right, china and india called developing nations and pay littleton no money. reduce climate admissions than any other country. joe can lift restrictions he put on fracking. create enough natural gas and we can start providing our nato allies in western european friends with all the natural gas that they need and they won't be making vladimir putin rich again. that will help end the war with ukraine. and joe biden would rather flat out lie about our economic woes that he caused. >> since i took office, families are carrying less debt nationwide. more savings nationwide. >> sean: that's not true at all. take a look on your screen.
6:08 pm
"americans now have an average of $9,000 less in savings than they did last year." according to news nation "as inflation goes up, so does americans credit card debt. joe biden, his entire administration, they are living in a fantasy world." just listen to what white house press secretary out there touting comic get this, america's historically good economy. think about that. is this historically good to you? how do you feel when you fill up your tank? how do you feel when you go to the grocery store? how do you feel when you go to lowe's and home depot? how do you feel when you go to the drugstore? even mcdonald's is charging a lot more. they have no choice. take a look. >> economists do cite the war in ukraine and supply chain issues. we did have that before the war. they say last year's stimulus package contributed to inflation. as the biden administration bear
6:09 pm
some responsibility? >> so first of all, the american rescue plan met the moment and it has put us in a place where we can actually put us in a place where the american people feel, actually we can take on inflation. >> sean: by the way, karine jean-pierre was not expecting tough questions from fake news cnn. this administration is such a disaster. now even don lemon, hard-core liberal, actually following our lead. questioning joe biden's mental and physical abilities. little late but welcome to the party. >> does the president have the stamina, physically and mentally, to continue on? >> you are asking me this question. oh, my gosh. he's the president of the united states. i can't even keep up with him. we just got back from new mexico. just got back from california. that is not a question we should
6:10 pm
be even asking. >> sean: not a question we should be even asking. a guy who can barely put two coherent sentences together. can i call the bluff on this, she can't keep up with joe biden? i'm not buying it. the guy gets blown over by the wind walking up the stairway to air force one, the guy who gets up late and goes to bed early, got the called a lid at 2:00 p.m. today. don, you might as well say it. joe biden is weak, frail, a cognitive rack and you can add if you want to be fair, we were way ahead of the curve, you could say an sean hannity on fox news was right the whole time. sadly the democratic party is not in good hands. joe biden is asleep at the wheel while radical, extreme socialists are driving the car. today some of them tried to block a bill providing more security for u.s. supreme court justices. this after last week's assassination attempt against
6:11 pm
justice kavanaugh which by the way was not mentioned on any sunday show except fox news sunday. the bill eventually did pass. 396-27. by the way, look at the 27 names right there, all 27 no votes came from democrats including a lot of squad members. aoc was in there. congresswoman tlaib was in there. anyway, they even went as far as doxxing the children's school of amy coney barrett. this after the assassination, well, attempt, was discovered by law enforcement are here with reaction, the host of the monica crowley podcast, monica crowley herself. along with the author, his new book is out soon. get an early copy. and bookstores everywhere called "oppression, depression, snobbery, bias: why the press gets so much wrong and just doesn't care." ari fleischer. last but certainly not least, our own joe concha.
6:12 pm
monica, let's start with you. you look at the state of the economy. how do you make a case to point to one thing that i must be missing because every indicator i see tells me that this is an economic disaster. record high gas prices, 42 year however inflation can we have the middle-class and people on fixed incomes, they are suffering badly. we can get out of the mess but that's not on the table. >> that's right. you know the old saying, don't pee on my leg and tell me it's raining. democrats trying to say, trying to spin this. the story catastrophe of a presidency. particularly with regards to the economy. they are saying don't pee on my leg and tell me it's raining. it's an economic horror show. they have decide between
6:13 pm
groceries and gas to get to work and try to pay for basic necessities that they can no longer afford. that's also assuming that they can feed their children with the baby formula shortage. so in every direction, this this an epic disaster and there is spin and then blatant lying. this administration is lying through its teeth. the democrats, including joe biden, have gotten away for so long with lying to the public and having the press and the public laugh it up unquestioningly. he thought he could get away with it. things have so dramatically changed for the worse under this man that people are just flat out rejecting the truth and the truth is staring them in the face every time they get up and try to make their way through the economy. >> sean: that's a key point. i know democrats if they -- if roe vs. wade is overturned, they want to run on that, they want to run on guns.
6:14 pm
they will use every election-year playbook. every american every day in her mind and when they fill up the tank and every store they go to, they pay a premium. this is a reality in spite of the lies, as monica called them, that they are telling every day. >> it shows how out of touch and out to lunch the biden administration is when it comes to the minds of the american people. joe biden is not the first person worthy overwhelming majority of the people think the country is on the wrong track but he's the first presidential run by saying the american people are wrong. >> sean: let me challenge one thing that you say. are they really out of touch? the biden administration? or do they really believe deep down in their hearts that somehow if they force americans and get them off fossil fuels that they are saving the world
6:15 pm
while they are making iran and opec nations in saudi arabia and maybe even venezuela rich. they believe in? do they think they are saving mother earth? >> i think what they really believe is the economy is good because on appointment is low and historically people respond on appointment numbers. but joe biden is kind of like a world war general in france. the problem was germany. building marginal line and prevent germany from attacking. germany went around the line and invaded from belgium into france. the issue is in emplacement, not unemployment. talks about all these other issues. american people are sensible and they get it and they know it's going on in their lives. it's economics. and it's inflation and it's killing the american people. >> sean: did you ever think, joe concha, you would see don lemon, liberal ideas. i don't know if he calls himself a journalist. it's a joke. he's a talk show host. he's just not honest about it. he's asking the question of
6:16 pm
karine jean-pierre. as the president have the stamina physically and mentally. do you think to continue on even after 20204? don lemon is asking that question. he could have said i think sean hannity on fox is right. he forgot that part is asking the question even the left as i've been saying, they all see it but they don't say it. >> don lemon has called himself a serious journalist before so there's that. there's never been and i understand she's new. but there's never been a more unsteady, unconfident, unprepared press secretary quite like karine jean-pierre. she couldn't be the spokesperson for america she continues to read most of her answers from a binder. not just looking at notes.
6:17 pm
we are talking about whole paragraphs. don kirby should be in that position. he's probably the most competent, articulate person but karine jean-pierre was chosen for other reasons and in the end, joe biden is officially pulling at the lowest numbers of any first-term president in pulling history, talking about truman to trump. the guy who got more votes than anyone else in history is now polling lower than anyone else in his position at this time in his presidency. when you are seen by the american people as too old and not mentally sharp for the job, that's a perception that's impossible to undo. >> sean: just to play devil's advocate, maybe when karine jean-pierre says she can't keep up with joe biden, maybe we're just not seeing the energetic joe, maybe we are seeing it, maybe there's a side of him they've been hiding the entire time.
6:18 pm
>> there is a schedule that's out every day of what the president does. as you said, call the lid at 2:00. you don't see the work ethic. at least if you look like he was putting the effort as he's approaching age 80, you could say at least he's trying. but he shouldn't -- at this point, who was it, david axelrod on cnn also said that the prospect of a second term joe biden who will be closer to 90 than 80 being president of this country given the energy level and given his mental capacity, it's a prospect that even democrats are saying we don't want any part of. the bottom line is, to quote the president, he said i've done everything in my power. putin's price hike, this person or his handlers think american people are several flavors and stupid. it's been going on for nearly 17
6:19 pm
months, inflation going up and gas prices going up. >> sean: even the left, even "the new york times" is raising the question, this guy can't run in 2024. we all know the truth. things are really bad. we're going to get shellacked in november. we don't want to get killed in 2024 also. i think this is a united democratic party effort. do you agree and when you look at the feds, pete buttigieg, amy klobuchar, elizabeth warren, who they have? >> losers all, sean. none of them are going to be the nominee. you don't get articles like we just saw this weekend in "the new york times" questioning joe biden's fitness, putting democrats on the record including david axelrod saying absolutely cannot run again. he cannot be the nominee unless the democrat power brokers want him gone so it's clear that they
6:20 pm
want him gone and the question is how are they going to maneuver it and who are they going to install? is he going to be mrs. obama? is he going to be hillary clinton? it's got to be a heavyweight. >> sean: what are your thoughts, ari fleischer. >> it's going to be up to the democratic primary voters. nobody can install anybody. i wrote a piece. i think there's some governors out there who have not run before. they are younger. that's going to be a new generation. democrats. you can't rule out the democrat socialist. will aoc run? you have 20 democrats in 2016. i'm sorry, 2019. candidates just like that now. it's healthy. it's a healthy part of democracy. the bottom line is remains in 2023 joe biden will be a lame duck and the democrats are going to breathe a sigh of relief. >> sean: all right, last
6:21 pm
question. joe concha, 30 seconds. who are the most promising, top three most promising democrats assuming joe doesn't run in 2024? >> you have the governor of kentucky right now, that's certainly polling pretty high. that's one. i would think. then again we've seen before in 2020. i know only have 15 seconds at this point. when more moderate governors before the democratic party run, the left wing, the aoc wing makes sure that they don't get anywhere near the nomination so it's hard to tell at this point. maybe hillary clinton as crazy as it sounds given the competition could be your next nominee, sean. >> sean: okay, that's a bad choice. thank you all. good to see you. ari, looking forward to your book. the biden administration continues to fail, you, the
6:22 pm
american people. midterm elections cannot come soon enough. our good friend john kennedy from louisiana weighs in. i'm sure he's got a phrase or two that will probably knock your socks off. straight ahead.
6:23 pm
6:24 pm
6:25 pm
6:26 pm
>> sean: as we've been pointing out, the biden agenda failing on every front. stocks continue to sink. your retirement money, your 401(k), prices continue to rise. if inflation added to your hive. biden's approval crashing. mortgage applications at a 22 year low. why would that be important to you? that would mean new home construction will now soon come to a screeching halt. that's going to hurt the contracting business big time.
6:27 pm
sales of existing homes, they're going to plummet because of the increased interest rates and they will rise again tomorrow. home values as a result, not going to have many customers. they are to drop dramatically with may be a few exceptions. florida probably won't be hit as hard because demand is so high. texas, the carolinas, tennessee. so many people moving into those states so they might be able to do better. biden's approval rating crashing, as it should. economic and energy policies destroying our economy and any transfer of a large portion of the population to have prosperity, inflation, gas prices, border, pretty much everything between. the biden white house keeps finding new ways to somehow make awful situations a lot worse. here with reaction it is very unique style and ways our friend, senator john kennedy from the great state of louisiana. you know, senator, i have a question for you because you are a common sense guy.
6:28 pm
i'd like to put aside republican, democrat. i want americans to have a chance to be successful. that's why i'm a conservative. i think conservatism works. so in all these years, 35 years in radio, 26 and a half years at fox. over those years, i've seen a lot of research on myself. and sometimes there's criticism from one or two people. i will look at it and pay attention. when there is the trend of 15, 20, 30 people may be making the same criticism about me in some way. i usually pay attention when i try to change to be better at what i do. now, if you have record high gas prices that we've never seen before now over five bucks a gallon, record high inflation. the obvious answer would be to change, to go back to the policies that you inherited that work. why won't joe biden and his party consider the policy
6:29 pm
changed if that would be needed? >> sean, i don't know. some of my democratic colleagues have raised age is an issue for the president. my judgment is age is the least of the presidents problems. he doesn't run for reelection, in my opinion it will be because of his unpopularity. i don't think i am unlike most americans. i think, i know about 90% of my personal and political philosophy is don't hate, don't hurt someone unless you have to defend yourself. don't take other people's stuff. leave me alone. and president biden obviously disagrees. he and his administration are constantly screwing with the american people, telling them how to live their lives.
6:30 pm
they do so in a way that does not improve the lives of most americans. i give you a few examples. president biden and the biden administration sick the department of justice on parents who care enough about their kids to go to a school board meeting and ask questions. the biden administration called the people of florida bunch of bigots because they don't want government talking to their 5-year-old children about sexuality. the biden administration called the good people of georgia racist because they believe that you ought to have to prove you are who you say you are in order to vote. just today president biden gave a speech and here's what he told the american people. he told the american people that their 401(k)s have crashed and that gas has gone from $2 to $5
6:31 pm
because the economy is so good. >> sean: [laughs] >> no one believes that. no one believes that. that's why i say president biden's biggest challenge in my judgment is not his age. it's his policies. that he won't change. >> sean: i want to take you to the next step. you gave me the answer about biden but you're pretty cordial, personable individual. i'm sure you talk to other people on the other side of the aisle. i would assume you have a good relationship with many of them. what about them? what are they saying about the high gas prices question what are they saying about joe? what are they saying about inflation, the state of the economy, the border, all these issues? are they not seeing what is so plainly obvious to everyone else? >> when it becomes time to talk
6:32 pm
about president biden's policies, let me put it another way. dog the bounty hunter couldn't find most of my democratic colleagues when you want to talk about president biden's administration. >> sean: joe manchin, kyrsten sinema, they seem to be people you can work with. they seem reasonable. they have blocked their party and said no we're not going along with some of the policies and i give them credit for doing so they've taken a lot of heat for doing it. >> yes. but they don't criticize the president. maybe they do privately. but my biggest surprise in the past six months particularly after the virginia governor's race is that this administration, instead of course correcting, they have doubled down. at this juncture i can tell you most americans look at this
6:33 pm
administration, how can i put this, they think andy has left town and bernie is in charge. or maybe otis. they just don't understand. >> sean: some people don't understand you are talking about me very usa. they don't know. >> they should watch the series. they might learn something. >> tucker: they might. it's interesting and i've said this before. it's worth repeating in my view. after the midterm shellacking and hillary care failed. they didn't have a good first midterm, bill clinton in 1994 when the republicans came to power on the contract with america, newt gingrich is a vision, bill clinton, the era of big government is over and it's the end of welfare as we know it. he also had as we describe a sister soldier moment.
6:34 pm
i don't see that capacity in any democrat but for the two that i mentioned, do you? >> no but here's the difference between the clinton and the biden administration's. president clinton appointed what one commentator called this week a bunch of high i.q. stupid people. in other words, well educated but no common sense. president biden has appointed whack jobs. these people dropped acid and an outback parking lot. you can't reason with them. they are just so woke and that's the difference in my opinion. and it's why they haven't course corrected. >> sean: senator, we need you back in the senate. of the good people of louisiana will gladly pull the lever for you and vote for you. we appreciate you being with us. straight ahead, biden's massive flip-flops. going to saudi arabia, going to beg for oil after he called the
6:35 pm
kingdom of pariahs during the trump years. former secretary of state mike pompeo ways and then later hunter biden caught on tape bringing about his power over his father. we'll play it coming up.
6:36 pm
hi, i'm karen. i lost 58 pounds on golo
6:37 pm
and i've kept it off for over a year. it was so easy that the weight just kept coming off. that's when i knew that this is real. golo works. i still can't believe that i look like this.
6:38 pm
6:39 pm
>> sean: despite labeling saudi arabia a pariah state, biden is going to make a visit to the kingdom and meet with the crown prince amid surging prices at the gas pump. my bet is that joey, your president, will be begging the saudi prince for oil and to increase production and not mention the killing of journalist jamal khashoggi which biden tried to somehow blame
6:40 pm
donald trump for at one point. controversy continues to swirl around professional golf as high-profile players like phil mickelson, dustin johnson leaving the pga tour to play for the new liv which is backed by the sovereign wealth fund of saudi arabia. reportedly offering the players over hundred million dollars in guaranteed money along with huge tournament prizes for the winter, bringing an era of free agency and player mobility to that sport. you may remember in 2019 biden said this about the saudi kingdom. take a look. >> the cia has concluded that the leader of saudi arabia directed the murder of u.s.-based journalist jamal khashoggi. the state department says the saudi government is responsible for executing nonviolent offenders and for torture. president trump does not punished senior saudi leaders. would you? >> yes. and i said it at the time. jamal khashoggi was murdered and dismembered and i believe in the order -- at the order of the
6:41 pm
crown prince and i would make it clear we were not going to sell more weapons to them. we were going to make them pay the price and make them of the pariah they are. >> sean: here is reaction former secretary of state, fox news which of your mike pompeo is with us. he was murdered. he believes ordered to be murdered, khashoggi, by the crown prince. i believe that's probably true too. i wouldn't do business with saudi arabia. the cia concluded that he made that order. is joe going to bring this up as he's on his hands and knees begging saudi arabia to produce more oil because he won't do it domestically? >> sean, i don't know if he's going to bring it up. the remarks he made were foolish and i think absolutely naive. they have been an important security partner for the united states of america. they have delivered good outcomes for us.
6:42 pm
the murder of jamal khashoggi was something the trump administration dealt with, we sanctioned a dozen plus officials from the kingdom. they have been someone who supported our efforts to build the abraham accords, the historic piece arrangements between the united states and israel. the president is going to go there. i hope you'll use it as a opportunity to build out peace and civility and reduce the risk that we ever have to send americans to fight in those places. the history too many times, we ought to get this right, ought to get this relationship right, it's important we work on human rights. this is important security for the united states. >> sean: context is important. if you would've told me that an alliance would emerge between the u.s., israel, the saudis, the jordanians, egyptians, and the emirates, i wouldn't have believed it. i wouldn't have thought it possible but it did happen in large part to stop iranian hegemony in the region and stop iran from getting a nuclear weapon.
6:43 pm
that did happen. but do you believe that the crown prince ordered the killing of khashoggi? >> well, i will leave that to the intelligence professionals. i have read what's there. you should know, read it carefully, there are still lots of questions about what transpired other than the fact we know that there was a murderer and we are highly confident during my time in service that the dozen people, 13 that we sanctioned were connected to that in a serious way and we did what a miracle always does. hold those responsible for the heinous activity accountable but it's also important to put in context the middle east and america's interests. this is what we worked on. the iranians were holding americans hostage. they killed 500 plus americans by a man named qassem soleimani. we hold him accountable. we were serious about making sure that every nation respect today. i think president biden has come close to making america a pariah state with middle eastern partners and friends that we have of making saudi arabia.
6:44 pm
we have to get these relationships right. the man matter for american trade and security. the chinese communist party is active in the middle east and we can't allow it to be a place that walks away from the united states because we reject them out of hand. >> sean: i would agree but it would matter less if we were energy independent like we were under president trump and that raises the question, why is joe biden really going there? i think we know the reason. he's going to beg for more oil. he's been begging opec. they finally agreed but they agreed, over $120 for a barrel of oil, making a ton of money. making a fortune. maybe you could explain. what difference does it make if you import oil and you make russia rich. iran. last year joe took a million barrels of oil for iran. sending emissaries to venezuela to talk to that murdering dictator thug begging opec and now begging saudi arabia. doesn't have the same impact if you will on mother earth, if you
6:45 pm
drill for oil they are or if we do it domestically? >> sean, you nailed it. as america secretary of state, he america's energy dominance was really important to me. it enhanced our security. we didn't have to beg madura, we didn't have to beg the ayatollah. we didn't have to beg letter put in. it's crazy. i'd rather see the president go to riyadh. i'd rather have them go to midland and go get the energy there. it's going to take a global supply increase to help the make and family in the way they are feeling so much pain today. >> sean: do you think they will change course? will joe change course? >> i don't see any evidence that the biden administration can change course. their capacity is proven limited. >> sean: mr. secretary, always love having you. hunter biden raking about the power he has over your president. miranda devine weighs in.

♪ ♪ >> sean: yet even more developments tonight in the chronicles of zero experience hunter biden. 2018 audio obtained by the "washington examiner" from hunter's laptop from hell reveals him boasting about his influence over his father. listen in his own words. >> talk about anything that i wanted to that he believes in. if i say it's important to me, then he will work a way in which to make it part of his platform. my dad respects me more than he respects anyone in the world and i know that to be certain. it's not going to be about whether my dad thinks it's going to affect his politics. >> sean: that's not all because hunter's ex-wife,

himself as joe's best advisor. whatever he says joe does. do you believe that, number one. what implications does that have especially with the grand jury investigating hunter? >> look, we know, sean, that joe biden has said that hunter biden is the smartest man he knows. we know that they are very close and that joe biden is sort of created a kennedyesque dynasty with his family where he takes advice from particularly hunter on all sorts of things, whether to run, his political career. hunter spends quite a lot of time, has spent since joe became president either in the white house at the beginning or just visiting with joe and jill back in delaware. joe goes back there every weekend. we know also from hunter's

friends they have discussed around the dinner table the finer points of whatever state issues are around including ukraine. so whether or not joe biden takes his son's advice and implemented or is allowed to. >> sean: he could have been shooting his mouth off and bragging. but he also talks about his dad taking half his income. he complains about paying tax bills. he puts aside money for the big guy. we know who the big guy is. i don't know, time is like a love-hate relationship as far as his ex-wife is concerned. she seemed shut out of 40 much everything. they would only have blood family photos and she wouldn't be included, this is the wife of hunter biden. wow. >> very strange. her memoir is very gracious and kind. she doesn't really criticize the bidens but it's really what she

doesn't say. it's the fact that she decided to remove her surname, the biden name which has brought her so much privilege in which she had for 24 years of her marriage, longer than she had her maiden name. she went to court to get back her maiden name and get rid of the biden name. that says a lot. also as you say, she was treated, because she wasn't a blood biden that she was somehow a second-class citizen. also interesting how surprised she wants to see the opulence in which joe biden and his family lived, the mansion in delaware that she was blown away by. hunter kept on telling her when they first met that he was a middle-class boy and she said to him, hunter, middle-class boys don't have ballrooms in their houses. so it's a very different picture. the fact is she was getting paid $37,000 a month alimony after their divorce. so she knew that there was money

coming from somewhere. it was very convenient to turn a blind eye but i think what she says is true. hunter really ran everything in that marriage and she was sort of shut out of a lot. >> sean: pretty much everything about hunter we all know is a fraud and had no experiencing up data or ten, anyway, miranda, thank you. more "hannity" right after this. e they've been promised to be. a promise is everything to old dominion, because it means everything to you. hi, my name is cherrie. i'm 76 and i live on the oregon coast. my husband, sam, we've been married 53 years. we love to walk on the beach. i have two daughters and then two granddaughters. i noticed that memories were not there like they were when i was much younger. since taking prevagen, my memory has gotten better
