caucus, congressman jim jordan. that's this "fox news sunday." we leave you now with a white house turned pink tonight in recognition of national breast cancer month. "on the record with greta van sust tonight's show as well. thanks for watching. >> tonight, newt gingrich says he would consider being speaker of the house again. >> obviously, no citizen, i mean, could ever turn down that kind of challenge. >> he is here tonight with more reaction to the gop leadership shake-up. then new reports say president obama is retreating in syria. while denying he's being shown up by putin. >> who won the week? reaction to the best and worst moments from the 2016 campaign trail. >> the nra's position reminds me of negotiating with the
iranians. >> and welcome to "hannity." the republican party is undergoing a major shake-up in washington as it tries to find a new speaker of the house. now that house majority leader kevin mccarthy dropped out of that race. reports are surfacing that many republicans including the outgoing speaker john boehner are encouraging wisconsin republican paul ryan to run. ryan's spokesman says he is not throwing his hat in the ring. here is the reaction. >> good to be with you. and you're very hypothetical question often radio yesterday got a lot more reaction than i thought it would. whatever that's worth. >> well, i do want to ask you about that. i'm glad you're jumping the gun on me just a hair. let me ask this first question. 60% of republicans say they feel betrayed by republicans. i've got to be honest. i'm one of them. do they have a right to feel
that? >> yes. >> explain. >> well, you know, the most recent survey they did by 60 to 32, the american people want a smaller federal government. they're not getting it. he's suggesting by executive order he's going to impose various forms of gun control he could never get through the congress. every time you turn around, there is something more outrageous coming out of washington. and the republicans don't seem to be capable of organizing a successful opposition. i think i'm very sympathetic to the problems that john boehner had. i don't know, frankly, that anybody could have done a much better job. but i think what you're seeing has to be put in context. the freedom caucus is a symptom of a much deeper anger in the country.
they're a symptom of the donald trump, ben carson, carly fiorina ted cruz and between them they have 60% of the vote of the republican primary. i it this washington establishment, news media or the republican members of the house and senate need to understand we're in the middle of a historic change. not just politics as usual. the country is increasingly angry. >> promises keep being made that aren't kept. you were the last speaker to work with a democratic president. you balanced the budget. you ran on ten items, a contract with america. and you kept every one of the promises. you voted on all ten items in 100 days.
you would consider being speaker again if asked? >> look, first of all, i think the key challenge here, i would say this to paul ryan who is probably the smartest, the most disciplined person in the house and who is the obvious person for everyone to turn to. this is not about personality. you had eric cantor knocked in and out a primary by a stunning margin. and his successor put out a very good list of the ten thin that's house republicans should do. you have speaker boehner reach a conclusion that it was too expensive and too painful to keep fighting. you have kevin mccarthy who i was for, i thought was the logical next speaker. you had him just now stop and people better understand this is not about finding a magic personality. the republicans need to slow down. they need to go into a number of day long conferences where they honestly listen to each other. every one of those two 247 won an election. every one of them deserves to be heard. but then you can say to every
one of them, now you have to listen to the rest of us, too. they've got to come up with a strategy which moves us towards the values of the american people and which successfully takes on obama and occur tails him. >> it seems that all president obama and the democrats have to do is threaten a government shutdown. you weren't afraid of a government shutdown. isn't that how awe cheeyou achi lot of your success? >> sure, that's one of the reasons that i'm confident that your faptcy will never come true. i don't see how you can allow the presidentst united states who arbitrarily extends occur tailing the second amendment and do nothing. but if you do anything, he's going to threaten to shut the government down. >> but didn't republicans embolden them when they didn't challenge them on executive action? they gave athem a do whatever you want card.
rule by executive fiat. why wouldn't he do it? it worked the last time. >> here are the two great secrets of being a failure. the first is to allow the senate and are ruthless and far more willing to stop anything to become the definer of the fight. and the second is to be afraid to take the president on constitutionally. i read this piece this morning. they talked about the catastrophic 2013 shutdown. one of the most successful republican elections in history. it was 2014. highest number of house members. took control of the u.s. senate. largest number of state legislators since -- in the history of the party. largest number. yet, this washington reporter says this was a catastrophic shutdown. give me three more catastrophes and we'll control everything. i mean we have to understand ronald reagan didn't look at weekly polls. margaret thatcher didn't look at weekly polls.
1995 when we forced clinton to decide he wanted to implement welfare reform and we forced him to agree, it was going to balance the federal budget. we didn't look at weekly polls. we looked at the nation, the future, and whether or not we could explain what we were doing. >> okay. under john boehner, our debt went up $4.1 trillion. that is not exactly the principle's conservative principles of limited government or responsible governance in my opinion which is why i think he's in the position that he's in today. i see a lot of conservatives. they're not even happy with paul ryan because of his positions on immigration which they believe will ultimately lead to some amnesty or tarp or bailouts or spending plans. they don't feel it is dynamic enough. what is your reaction to those people? >> first of all, nobody is going to be perfect. start there. i mean, you pick the most perfect member of the freedom caucus and you put them in charge of the house within two weeks half the freedom caucus will be mad at them and half of the rest of the country will be
mad at them. these are troubled times. these are times produce ben carson, carly fiorina, a donald trump and on the other side, a bernie sanders. and we need to understand, people -- you can't change the position. you can say here's the question i would ask. before they pick a speaker and paul ryan is a very, very smart guy. and if he wants to run, i suspect he'll probably win. partly because people are in a rush to get to a decision rather than stop and think. it scares them to be in this turmoil and the news media is beating on them and saying you have to do something right now or it will look terrible and it will be really bad. the election is over a year off. don't worry about it. try to think through what the right thing s i'll tell you, what i would ask of any potential speaker is, tell me your strategy. explain to me how you're going to bring the republicans together in the house. explain to me how you're going to stand up to the senate and
explain to me how you're going to curtail the most unconstitutional president in history? >> answer your three questions. if you were the president, what would you do? >> i think i better start by listening to each other. expand the opportunity for individuals to run. you run for office. you feel like you can't just be treated like you're a mushroom and they're going to dump you in the cellar and not every pay anything. you have a right an elected representative tore a genuine part of the group. so one they have to really think about rules changes. they have to think about a whole new model of listening to each other. and working together. two, i think they've got to stay in the senate. we love you guys. we know you're doing the best you can and we know that somehow harry reid keeps buffaloing you
and schumer is about to be -- his replacement in buffalo, we're going to do what is right for the u.s. house. we'll see new conference. we'll cowork out everything in conference. we're not going to pass in the house when you think you can pass in senate. they won't let you pass things that matter. finally, i said to the president, this has to happen. this does not happen, you're going to have a run of unconstitutionality that will be terrifying between now and the new president coming in in 2017. i will tell the president, you're out of money. you want to close the government, close the government. let's go to the american people and talk about it. but we're not going to allow you to sell out the americans who are now the russians allies in syria. we're not going to allow you to destroy the second amendment by executive fiat. we're not going to allow you to zroit american process of immigration and citizenship by executive order. we're not going to -- even george will who is a very solid guy came out for impeaching the head of the internal revenue
service which faekts every taxpayer in the country. there's an easy gimme. george will thinks this guy is bad enough, and andy mccarthy began calling for it a year ago, they have an easy target to start down the road on. they were going to set up a committee on the planned poirnthood. trey gowdy is doing a great job. i think we ought to be startled how many bad things we lrn about clinton and national security over the next few weeks. so the things you can do to begin to crowd in obama and weaken his ability to be constitutional. >> you say you don't want the job reminds me of gladiator and maximus being asked by marcus and he says with all my heart, no. and then he says, well that's why it should be you. you may an articulate case that you should be speaker. i'm just giving my opinion. >> i get sold in slavery and killed. this is your model for my life? to get sold into slavery and
killed? >> it's not. you were the most successful speaker in the last 50 years by far. what you just outlined is what i would like to see in the next speaker. we'll have more with newt gingrich whether he likes it or not. later, the obama administration in retreat in syria and fox news is confirmed u.s. will no longer be harming and training syrian rebels that obama came to putin. strayed straight ahead. and then later tonight -- >> is this the setup? >> i'm hispanic and i vote for mr. trump. we vote for mr. trump! >> that's big donald trump supporter. he really wants him to win the white house. white house. who won the week on the cambefo burning, pins-and-needles of diabetic nerve pain, these feet... ...served my country... ...carried the weight of a family... ...and walked a daughter down the aisle. but i couldn't bear my diabetic nerve pain any longer. so i talked to my doctor and he prescribed lyrica.
nerve damage from diabetes causes diabetic nerve pain. lyrica is fda-approved to treat this pain. lyrica may cause serious allergic reactions or suicidal thoughts or actions. tell your doctor right away if you have these, new, or worsening depression, or unusual changes in mood or behavior. or swelling, trouble breathing, rash, hives, blisters, muscle pain with fever, tired feeling, or blurry vision. common side effects are dizziness, sleepiness, weight gain and swelling of hands, legs and feet. don't drink alcohol while taking lyrica. don't drive or use machinery until you know how lyrica affects you. those who have had a drug or alcohol problem may be more likely to misuse lyrica. now i have less diabetic nerve pain. and my biggest reason to walk... ...calls me grandpa. ask your doctor about lyrica.
russian warplanes target u.s. backed rebels in syria. fox news confirmed the that president obama will now end the program to train and arm the syrian rebels fighting to free their country from the brutal dictatorship of president assad. still with us, former speaker of the house, newt gingrich. now putin gets involved here. he says he has to battle isis. he bombs the u.s. train, the u.s. armed rebels that were going to topple assad, not isis. and now obama within a week says we're out of here? it seems like putin fought a proxy war and won pretty quick. what's your reaction? >> well, look, i think there aren't words strong enough to describe the failure of the obama administration and national security foreign policy. they surrendered to the iranians. they probably proved how anti-american they were by supporting putin. he communicated how weak we were
on crimea and how weak we were on ukraine. he now has forces in sear yachlt the fact that we were shocked. this is like the scene from "casa blanka." he was shocked to discover gambling. the fact that we were shocked that putin's goal is to protect assad, you ought to fire every single person in the intelligence and state department and defense community who thought that putin was going to go in there to focus on isis. >> they've been out of the region since the early 70s. this leads me to my final question because we're running out of time. we have 50 million americans in poverty. 46 on food stamps. median income is down $5,000 on obama. 95 million americans added to the labor force. you have china, putin, obama care is a disaster. you have hillary's e-mails attempted hacks by everybody.
okay. i got your message. you're not seeking the speakership. but, what role would you be willing to play to help these people, republicans get their act together? because, frankly, if they don't, i really worry if we'll ever solve these problems and really solve -- these are significant times we're living in. >> look, we have a lot of good candidates for president. we have a lot of very smart house and senate members. i try to work with as many of them as they want me to. i don't call on them. i don't say i can come help you, but anybody that calls me, i take the time and sit down with them and work things through. i'll tell you, i'm on optimist. despite everything you said this is the most extraordinary country in history. there are 315 million americans. they're increasingly angry. they want to see real change. and in american history, when you start getting 60% and 70% of the country that wants real change, the politicians follow the people. the people don't follow the
politicians. and that's what we're living through in the house. we're going to see it in the senate. and you're sure seeing it in the presidential campaign. >> you gave us the last balanced budgets and welfare reform and kept your ten promises you made much that's not something we had in a long time. mr. speaker, appreciate you being us with. i hope can you give these guy sometimes help in whatever role that is. >> the race for 2016 is on. we'll scam whoin won the week on the campaign trail. and is the president willing to circumvent congress once again when it comes to pushing through when it comes to pushing through his
you stay up. you listen. you laugh. you worry. you do whatever it takes to take care of your family. and when it's time to plan for your family's future, we're here for you. we're legalzoom, and for over 10 years we've helped families just like yours with wills and living trusts. so when you're ready, start with us. doing the right thing has never been easier. legalzoom. legal help is here. the race for 2016 is in full swing. many presidential hopefuls have been pounding the campaign trail. so who won the week in republican front-runner donald trump received a glowing endorsement if a very enthusiastic supporter. >> is this a setup?
i did ever meet you before? >> i'm hispanic and i vote for mr. trump. we vote for mr. trump! yes! mr. trump! we love you! we love you! >> i swear to you, i think she's totally beautiful. i never met her before. i swear. >> now that's enthusiastic. that's not all this week. ben carson, he faced a volley of criticism from the mainstream media because of his nonp.c. style and quoting from the magazine gq. they had a piece titled, well, bleep ben carson. he had a few choice words for the left wing media. watch this. >> i think people know exactly what i'm saying. and they know exactly what the media is trying to do. and i think they're smarter than that. they're not going to be manipulated. one of the problems with people in the media is they pick one
little thing and say that's your philosophy on this. which is a bunch of crap. you know, we're sophisticated individuals. >> and meanwhile, democratic front-runner hillary rodham clinton was in hot water once again this week. reports related once again to the server scandal. the ap reported that hackers with ties to south korea, germany, and china all tried to hack into her e-mails and, of course, the russians made five separate attempts. here now with reaction from the "washington times," charles hurt, peter johnson jr. and kirsten powers. you sometimes take unpredictable positions as a democrat. rudy giuliani identified 15 separate counts that should be investigated as it relates to he hillary. do you see a big problem emerging for her? >> of course, there is potential. i think everybody looked at this and said that could be where it leads. that point, i don't think it's a criminal investigation.
and in term of the -- >> so not every fbi investigation is criminal? >> i mean she's not going to go -- it doesn't look like she's going to go to jail. i mean do you think she's going to go to jail? >> look, there are 33,000 e-mails she tried to delete. peter, you're the lawyer. 33,000. apparently they're going to be able to recover them. the cloud service and the connecticut cloud backup firm she used, plat river services thinking, wait a minute, will we being, you know, encouraged to obstruct justice here? if they recover them and it's not about yoga or wedding or funeral and conversations with bill and it's about benghazi and the clinton foundation, how much trouble is she in? >> everyone in the democratic party is holding their breath and walking along on tippy toes. yeah, i do agree. i don't agree all the time with rudy giuliani. i do agree with him on. this he has the experience and the expertise in that area. he's looked at the particular statutes. he's looked at the u.s. code.
he thinks that she's significant risk based on the evidence that he has seen. he hasn't indicted or convicted her. >> if they found classified information in the deleted e-mails and they asked the server company to delete them after they were requested by the state department -- >> huge problem. >> that is obstruction. >> she would have to know that they were classified. >> they went through them individually, she said. she was very clear. they were about yoga. >> that would be the distinction. i think the conversations we've had before, well maybe somebody -- >> north korea's nuclear program. >> someone sent her an e-mail and it wasn't classified and she didn't consider it classified. whether you think that's right or wrong that, is it. >> back to peter. >> yeah. >> if it's satellite images of their nuclear program, wouldn't one know that is classified? >> i think you want to close down the campaign headquarters at that point. >> yeah. absolutely. >> charles hurt. who is the political winner of the week for the road to 2016?
>> i think probably ted cruz is just because he's kind of proving himself to be the tortuous in this race. he just keeps plodding along. he had put up some good fund-raising numbers and just -- you know, he has this path and he doesn't veer off of it. the other one, of course, is donald trump just because every week that donald trump remains at the top of the heap, voters get used to the idea that this guy, wow this guy really might be an actual viable nominee. and it also means the general lection voters get used to the idea of him running against a hillary clinton or a joe biden. and especially with the problems that hillary's facing with the server mess. >> who is the winner of the week? >> yeah. i probably would say it's -- the winners continue to be the people that are the outsiders. i still think we see the trump, fiorina, bernie sanders and even carson with all of the controversies that he's had, i think what is interesting is watching how he responds to
them. and i'm not a trump fan, i would say he does the same thing. it's an interesting contrast to other candidates who have the learned helplessness where the media where they've been shocked so many times that they respond the same way. and they instead say, no, i'm not apologizing. you're taking it out of context. that's not what i meant. and they're just sort of standing by what they believe. >> i think people are flocking to these three outsiders because they really understand that there's almost a conspiracy between the so-called gene justi genius class and political class in america. they're out of touch and alienated and reflection of all the family. i say they're a reflection of mr. smith goes to washington. people are saying we've had enough of the geniuses in washington and the people and the correspondents association and this one and that one. we want to choose our own leader in this country. so we chose failed politicians for long enough. let's look at somebody else. >> they seem to be sustaining this popularity then. >> all right. let me play hillary clinton comparing the nra to murderous
regimes like iran and the former soviet union and communism. watch this. >> you know, the nra's position reminds me of negotiating with the iranians or the communists. there's no possible discussion. and it's for political purposes. the nra tries to keep gun owners who are the members really upset all the time so they can keep collecting their money because they tell them that they're the only things that going to stop the black helicopters from landing on the front yard and people's guns being seized. i mean that's basically the argument they make. >> charles, besides the admission that it is a futile attempt to negotiate with the iranians which i thought was an interesting admission, but comparing the nra to murderous regimes that have killed millions, i don't think that's going to particularly resonate in red america.
>> i don't think it's going to resonate in either party. but, john, it's such a dramatic departure. remember in 2008 when she was running against barack obama and he made that horrible comment about bitter clingers to bible and to guns? she went all out for those very voters, the very nra voters she's now trashing. she went after them with abandon and tried to drive as much of a wedge between them and barack obama over that comment. it just goes to show, she'll say anything. >> she also admitted she was a duck hunter back in '08. >> secretary clinton, was she watching the army mccarthy hearings over the weekend? is she channeling nor joe mccarthy now? we're going to start labelling people communists in this country. i don't agree with the nra on a lot of different things. on some things, i -- >> i'm a proud nra member. >> i understand. that i don't agree with them on everything. i believe in the second amendment and they do, too. but some other things i don't.
but to say this grouch americans who are taking positions who have a right to take this position are somehow like communists that, is joe mccarthy. >> she may have gone too far with her comparison. but the nra, i'm sorry that you're a member of them. i think they're a very, very negative -- >> they have the number one -- >> i don't care how many people supports them. >> they are the number one group that teaches gun safety in this country today. >> they're also the number one group that makes it impossible to have any meaningful laws on guns. >> this is what we're hearing of the democratic party where there is no reason or proportion. people that associate with the nra are like communists and e eyia eyians. >> that's wrong. >> i said she went too far but they're fanatical. >> i'm with peter, it's wrong. >> president obama was in oregon meeting with families and victims of last week's shootings
but not everyone was happy that he was. there also later tonight, roma downey is here to explain why faith based films are resonating so well with americans at the box office. she'll also talk about the she'll also talk about the latest project as we she'll also talk about the latest project as we just like eddie, the first step to reaching your retirement goals is to visualize them. then, let the principal help you get there. join us as we celebrate eddie's retirement, and start planning your own. we danced in a german dance group. i wore lederhosen.man. when i first got on ancestry i was really surprised that i wasn't finding all of these germans in my tree. i decided to have my dna tested through ancestry dna. the big surprise was we're not german at all. 52% of my dna comes from scotland and ireland. so, i traded in my lederhosen for a kilt. ancestry has many paths to discovering your story. get started for free at ancestry.com.

this president, republicans allowed them to get away with executive amnesty. they said they would stop them. now does that embolden him to totally ignore the constitution, the rule of law? he's going to write his own laws, write his own executive orders? >> in anticipation of this show, i was thinking about examples of obama defying the constitution and thwarting congressional authority. i went back to one of my obama books. and i thought of seven examples. there's about 20 examples. only seven of them. then i opened my e-mail and i get a blast from heritage foundation. they say seven times obama violated -- they have something i don't have. let mess give you a few. immigration, the dream act. two weeks before he said he had no authority and did it anyway. >> he said 25 times dent have authority. >> then he just did it. >> obamacare waivers and exemptions with the epa. no child left behind. he waived the requirement for math. the department of of interior.
>> i'll throw it to leslie. she is the liberal on the panel. do you believe in separation of powers? oh, co-equal branches of government? >> absolutely. >> you know how a bill becomes a law. >> yes, i do. >> so the president to admit he doesn't have the right, for then using immigration to use it that, would say that he is admitting his own lawlessness, doesn't it? and if i had to bet, i would say he trying to push the democrats that are trying to push legislation. you say it by-passes congress. i honestly don't know how successful it will be if we look 23 time. >> i happen to be an advocate. i had gun carry per hits in rhode island, california, alabama, georgia and new york. i carried a gun in all of my
life. i was trained in the use of a fire arm at 11. i would prefer if a incident happens write am or my children are that somebody like bodeedl is there and armed and trained and willing to take on a perpetrator like this. background checks are in place. they you this have weapons. i think all nra people agree on that. when you have a president that wants to throw the baby out with the bath water, and put his new law in, there circumvent the congress, we have -- you have judicial. we have legislation, and we have executive. co-equal branches of government. >> but here's any question to leslie and then david. he said he's going politicize. this we should politicize this, he said. but here's the problem. you know how many shootings took place in chicago for the month of september alone?
do you know how many? >> no, i don't. >> 300. >> probably more since we started. >> 351. i didn't see him go to his own home state and lecture people in his own hometown. why does he try and take a high profile case and exploit it? this is exploitation of a tragedy before he even knew the name of the victims he said i'm going to politicize it. >> i don't agree with that. i think he is passionate as i as a democrat am about not taking away anyone's rights. i want cops that people that are cops and have been trained as cops out there to save lives. do you not do a background check under the federal law, there are no background checks at gun shows. i can be a felon and have strong mental illness and get a weapon. >> over 120 -- they regard them as mass shootings, at three or more people occurred in chicago. out of 120 mass shootings. what he's saying is let's use
our energy. let's find out how we can get the illegal guns off the street that are killing people. >> i agree with. that. >> but he takes it and politicizes it on this case. >> is it political because you even talked about universal background checks. it's the majority of americans -- majority of americans want universal background checks. >> he lied about the fact that he knows he lied. the states were the strictest gun control laws he says. the opposite is true. he says if we have greater gun control laws, we'll have fewer deaths. we have relaxed gun control laws in the last 20 years and had significantly lower deaths. he says the united states has the highest per capita deaths from gun shootings. that's not true. >> you remove the city with the toughest laws and the most violence. >> he knows what he's saying is not true. he knows gun laws don't prevent gun death. but gun deaths are not caused by guns. why is he doing sfwlit. >> do you think because he keeps comparing us to australia and
great britain where they had confiscation, is that his goal? >> suspicious people can reasonably wonder. we know what he's saying isn't true. we know he's very frustrated. >> one last question. leslie, god forbid if you, your family, your children, are in a classroom and somebody comes in with a gun. would you prefer to have somebody like bo, a retired detective armed and trained in the use of firearm in that building or not? >> i would like to have, because i have to children, 7 and 8 years of age in a school, i would like to have -- >> you'd be glad he's there. >> i believe in current or former law enforcement or military personnel that are trained. i don't believe in the students packing. i don't believe in the parents packing. i don't believe in the teachers packing. >> gun free zones don't work. >> and columbine, there were two armed guards at columbine. >> they go into the gun free zones. every one of them. you say that, i agree with you. you want a gun free. >> in the u.s. and western
europe, all the massive gun shootings, three or more deaths have occurred in gun free zones. >> more politicalization. thank you all. coming up, hollywood better wake up. because you, the american people, are proven that you want more faith-based films. we'll ask roma downey about this growing trend and she has a brand new movie coming out with jon voight. it's awesome. we'll tell you about that coming up.

that it's a true film you had this one game, you talk to the coach. he's able to grow the team together in a time when there is a lot of racial discord. and units them in a way that is very inspiring. >> it's set on the 1970s in birmingham, alabama at woodlawn high school. telling the story of tony mason, really an amazing, strong and courageous young player, played by a wonderful break out young star. and caleb castille. >> john voigt was unbelievable. the scene he walked into the opponent's locker room after losing the game and looking him in the eye, gives me chills
thinking about it. he shakes the hands of the african american player. >> is that part of the story true? >> that part of the story is true. the film was shot on location. and coming out of a time, i think where we need to see how people can come together. and you were mentioning about faith films doing so well. i think that the industry, the film industry likes to think about some sort of like -- out wire. >> yes. like a group on the side, a cult group on the side. we are the american public. there are many people that want to see these films. we're main stream. >> i watched it with my family and the kids were captivated. what a nice change, you can take your kids to a movie and not go like this every two seconds. >> absolutely. it's about love and embracing people. >> i saw the movie and i am telling you, take your kids.
it's paul woodlawn. you're going to see this movie it's going to inspire you. >> it's going to become a classic, one of those movies and i predict it's going to be a break out movie. it touches your heart. >> it does. great work as always. you've been so nice to me, you, and your husband, good to see you. >> nice to see you, too. >> all right, roma, coming up, a very important question of the i accept i'm not 22. i accept i'm not the rower i used to be. i even accept i have a higher risk of stroke due to afib, a type of irregular heartbeat not caused by a heart valve problem. but i won't accept is getting out there with less than my best. so if i can go for something better than warfarin, i will. eliquis. eliquis reduced the risk of stroke better than warfarin, plus it had significantly less major bleeding than warfarin. eliquis had both. that really mattered to me.
don't stop taking eliquis unless your doctor tells you to, as stopping increases your risk of having a stroke. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily and it may take longer than usual for any bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. i accept i don't have to set records. but i'm still going for my personal best. and for eliquis. reduced risk of stroke plus less major bleeding. ask your doctor if switching to eliquis is right for you. the citi double cash® card comes in very handy with cash back twice. with 1% when you buy and 1% as you pay. with two ways to earn on purchases, it makes a lot of other cards seem one sided.

welcome back to "hannity" do you think newt gingrich or any other outsider should replace john boehner as speaker of the house? now, it's time for the ask sean segment. would you like to ask me, here is tonight's question from kevin. >> my name is kevin from texas. my question regarding ted cruz's filibuster in 2013. to you this is an adverse or favorable reaction to his presidential campaign? >> absolutely, no doubt, favorable. ted cruz stayed very steady, in the top, 4, 5 in every poll. very strong. and i think people are still getting to know him.
with four months to go, there is plenty of time. the fact he stood strong and was the one senator willing to fight for principles that every other senator and congressman made in terms of promise to repeal obamacare showed a lot of political coverage and i hope will help him in the end, when all is said and done. great questions. if you have a question go to twitter and that is all the time we have left this evening. we take attendance and it hurts our feelings when you're not here. have a great weekend. see you back here on monday.
