charles koch, that guy that the left loves to hate more than anybody else. wait to hear what he says about raising our kids in this country. he's decided to defend himself on tv with megyn. tonight -- >> he know house to get attention. he's the classic reality tv character. >> with donald trump surging in the polls, president obama is taking on the republican front-runner. >> i don't think he'll end up being president of the united states. >> debbie wasserman schultz rips apart republicans. >> any one of those candidates is a dramatic contrast to any of the republican circus performer that are on the other side. >> donald trump tonight responds to it all. >> am i ready for hillary? yes. am i excited? no. >> are the liberals losing faith in hillary clinton? >> down, down, usa. >> and a shocking chant at the 20th anniversary of the million
man march in washington. we'll have reaction. "hannity" starts right here, right now. >> welcome to "hannity." tonight donald trump continues to soar in the polls. in first place with 27% of the vote. dr. ben carson in second place with 21% and they are followed by ted cruz, marco rubio, jeb bush, carly fiorina who are all in the single digits. trump is shaking up the political establishment with his dominance in the polls, but president obama doesn't seem too impressed with the gop front-runner. here he is last night when asked about trump and his candidacy on "60 minutes." take a look. >> he knows how to get attention. he's the classic reality tv character. and at this early stage, it's not surprising that he's gotten a lot of attention. >> do you think he's running out of steam? do you think he'll disappear? >> i'll leave it up to the pundits to make that determination. i don't think he'll end up being president of the united states. >> here with reaction, donald
trump. why do i guess you really don't care what president obama says, but i want to give you a chance to react to what he said. >> well, he's got to say that. he's not going to say, gee, whiz, i think he's going to win, he's going to beat the democrats. he's an intelligent guy. he had a bad night on "60 minutes." he looked terrible in what he was saying, absolutely terrible. it was a bad night for him. everybody said the same thing. he has so many problems, he's caused so many problems. when they asked the question about me, he's obviously not going to say, gee whiz, i think he's going to win, so that's all he can say. i can't discredit him for that. >> let me ask you two more questions, one on the economy and one on foreign policy. we've accumulated more debt under president obama, more than any other president combined. he's put millions on food stamps, more americans in poverty, 95 million americans
out of the workplace, median income down nearly $5,000 a family and a 40% increase in health care. what has he done economically if you can think of anything that's made the country better? >> nothing. and obamacare is a disaster. you forgot to mention that. obamacare is going to really kick in in '16 when you'll have a new president. and i have to tell you, it is a disaster. what's going on -- you know, for the next president, that president had better be really competent because obamacare is one of the big killers coming up. you know that, you reported it. people's premiums are going up 55%, 45%, 50%, like constantly. deductibles are through the roof. obamacare just mark my words, it's going to be catastrophic for the country. >> i watch him on foreign policy. it took three days after vladimir putin, you know, targeted u.s.-trained,
u.s.-armed anti-assad rebels in syria where he said he's going to leave now because vladimir putin engaged there. then look all over the middle east. it's just one piece of the pie, and then this iranian deal. can you name any foreign policy success of obama? >> well, if you look at the iranian deal, it may be the worst contract i've ever seen drawn. that includes real estate deals. that includes every kind of a deal. and that's all die i do is contracts. it's catastrophic. in addition to which we're giving them $150 billion, they're going to be brutal because of us. it will be worse than anybody knows. they will have nuclear weapons and they are keeping our prisoners, by the way. this whole deal is catastrophic. you look at every single thing he's done, now, putin leaves new york, he leaves the united states, he makes his thing at
the united nations, his statement at the unioted nation, he sees obama and two days later he's doing something he never told president obama about. he's got no respect. i guess obama doesn't like him very much either. but putin has absolutely no respect for our country or for our president. >> he pulled the u.s. troops supporting the syrian rebels that we've been arming and training, he now pulled out two days after they were targeted by vladimir putin. you know, there's two comments you made this weekend that i think reflect why you're being successful. i want to tell you what they were. one, you said hillary should be in jail. now we just learned from trey gowdy on the benghazi committee that she did, in fact, forward a classified e-mail with the name of an undercover operative in libya, which means if her server was hacked, that individual would die. you said something that very few are willing to say, that you think she shouldn't even be a candidate, that she should be worried about going to jail. explain. >> well, she shouldn't be a candidate. what she's done is very serious
and everybody else who has done it has either gone to jail or had certain problems like you wouldn't believe like as an example, general petraeus. he's a respected man, wonderful general even though, the whole thing over there was also catastrophic, but he was still a wonderful man, a wonderful general. he did something and, you know what they did with him, with two years probation and everything else. i mean, they destroyed his life. and what he did is 5% of what she's done. so look, she's being protected by the democrats. in my opinion they won't do anything with her. it's very unfair to everybody else that suffered greatly for far worse than what she's done and she'll probably be a candidate. with that being said, i'd love to run against her because she's so flawed, she's got so many problems, she did subpoena a bad job as secretary of state, i think she's very beatable, but she shouldn't even be allowed to run. >> the other comment that you made that i thought really stood out is you said we are absolutely foolish to take in
syrian refugees especially because our intelligence agencies have told us isis and al qaeda will infiltrate the refugee population. if you are president and they are here, will you send them back? >> first of all, the answer is yes. and i'm the first one that said it. i said it loud and strong. we owe $19 trillion. they figure that over a ten-year period this is going to cost us billion of dollars. but on a humane basis, i want to do something. except here's the problem. i look at the migration. they're men. there's so many men, they're strong, they're young. first thing i said why aren't they fighting for their country? then this could be the ultimate trojan horse. i've been talking about this with a lot of people and you. this could be the great trojan horse. we'll take in 200,000. when i heard 3,000, i said maybe, then i heard 5,000 to 10,000. do we have to do it? can't somebody else finally do it? now they're talking about 200,000 people. you have to look at this
migration. these are strong, young men. now, we're going to put hundreds of thousands of people? i'm telling you, it's probably not a trojan horse, but the word probably is not acceptable. why should we be taking chances? our country's a mess. we have to rebuild our country. we have to rebuild our military. we have to take care of our vets, sean, we have all these things to do now we're going to take in 200,000 people. and by the way, zero documentation. nobody tells you where they're from. there's no paperwork. we have no idea who these people are. we have to be crazy or insane to even think about it. so hopefully that doesn't happen. and i said the other day, you heard me, i said if it happens and if obama takes them in, they're going out if i win, they're going back. >> another thing that came up, i noticed that you spoke at the no labels event. i think it was in new hampshire. and a woman said, i don't think you're a friend of women. i've been to trump towers, i've
spent time with your wife and a lot of time with your daughter. i've seen her every time i've been over there. i know she loves her dad. i look around your massive offices and i see men and women and people young and old, a lot of people are working there. thousands, i would guess, total. and i wanted to give you a chance to respond considering that seems to be a line of attack the left wants to use against you. >> well, seldom, this is one person -- it was actually a tremendous event. but one woman did ask about that. look, nobody respects women more than i do. my mother was the ultimate person to me, the greatest. there was nobody like my mother. my wife, my daughter ivanka, my wife melania will be out campaigning very soon. and they already have actually done some, but they'll be out heavi heavily. and they know how much i respect women. they say you have to talk about women because you totally respect women, you cherish women. and i used that word. hillary said you shouldn't use the word. i have to use the word.
i cherish women, i respect women. and i'll do more for women than anybody else. i will say this, sean -- >> i don't mean to interrupt you. hillary is running on she's the great supporter of women. i look at the silence. she didn't say a word with all the issues with her husband and women. is that fair game in the political world? should it be? >> well, that's a tough one. that's pretty tough to be talking about, but i will say this, i don't think she has the steam to get in there and do what she has to do. i can tell you this, jeb bush, rubio, all these guys, they don't have the steam. this is a very serious problem. and women really remember last week a couple of weeks ago with jeb bush on women's health issues. he said he's not going to fund them. i said, why aren't you going to fund them? ultimately he recanted and he took it back. but when you make that statement, that's a bad statement. and rubio feels the same way. so many others. i will be the best thing that could happen to women. pi have great respect and
admiration for women. i've had women long before in the construction industry building this building many years ago, i had a woman in charge. nobody else had that. so i'm very proud of my record with women. >> we'll take a break. one more segment with donald trump right after this. also coming up tonight -- >> the is a republic15 republic who are left all of whom are trying to out-trump donald trump by saying let's kick immigrants out of this country. >> debbie wasserman schultz stoops to a new low. donald trump will respond to her outrageous remarks. new trouble for hillary clinton ahead of tomorrow's democratic debate. the latest numbers reveal she's dropped a whopping ten points in a single week. is never easy. doing your own thing, making your own way can be pretty, well, bold.

welcome back to "hannity ". dnc chairwoman debbie wasserman schultz stooped to a new low in attacking the gop. watch this. >> any one of those candidates is in dramatic contrast to any of the republican circus candidates that -- circus performers that are on the other side. the 15 republican candidates who are left all of whom are trying to outtrump donald trump by saying let's kick women -- let's kick immigrants out of this country, take health care away from women, let's increase taxes on the middle class to pay for tax cuts for the wealthy, let's end medicare as we know it. >> joining us for more reaction, 2016 presidential candidate donald trump. if you become the nominee, it's a guarantee that they'll try to pigeonhole you as being racist, as being sexist, as wanting to throw granny over the cliff, wanting to poison the air and
water. that's democratic playbook 101. how are you prepared to respond to those attacks? you always say you respond when people attack you first. >> well, they're not going to be able to do that with me because my issues -- if you look at any one of the things you just said, the african-american population. i'm going to bring jobs back. we had a poll recently where i had 25%. the highest ever in a republican primary. always been 9%, 7%. somebody said if you get 25% of the african-american vote, the election's over, you win. and i have a great relationship there. i will have and do have -- because you see the polls -- a great relationship with women. the women are -- i mean, i do great with them. great with evangelicals, tea party. i mean, frankly, with liberals, democrats, conservatives straight across the woboard. you probably saw i have 32 and number two is 13. i have this massive lead over
number two. it just came out. part of the reason -- and when you look at that poll, it's women, it's african-americans, it's everything, straight across the board. i'm very happy about that. i think we're going to do great. >> we call this the year of the insurgent candidate, outsider candidate. you take 60% of the votes, you're all outsiders. bernie sanders, an outsider. boehner is out, mccarthy didn't get it, they're pushing for paul ryan. i made a statement to a "usa today" reporter, i don't think paul ryan's the guy and for a lot of different reasons. the nicest guy in the world, not the guy that will fight and lead. who do you think will be a good speaker? >> well, i'm a little concerned about, you know, paul because, if you look at his thing on illegal immigration, it's very weak. his stance on illegal immigration, amnesty is in his opinion like a very strong situation, i don't see it.
i don't see it. we have to have a border, we have to have a wall, we have to have people come in but they have to come in legally, and he's very weak on that issue and that bothers me. i like him a lot. i think he's a terrific guy. but he's very weak on illegal immigration. we do have three or four people -- well, we do and i have a few names but i don't want to use them now because i don't think these people are interested or if they are they're certainly not putting their names forward. we need someone very tough and very, very smart. it has to be a combination. it can't be one without the other. i know plenty of tough guys that aren't smart. and i know the other two, and i don't think that works either in this case. we need tough and we need smart. if we don't get that, it's problems. >> my suggestion is bring back newt gingrich. you haven't had a more successful speaker in 50 years. good idea, bad idea? >> newt has been so nice to me. he said such great things about me. so nice to hear the other day. he said things i refused to even talk about him because he'll say
like i'm an egomaniac. what he said about me was incredible. i like newt. he's a really smart guy. he really showed it last time not only in the debates in the way he ran. i've heard that suggestion, a lot of people like that idea. >> all right. mr. trump good to see you. always good to have you back on the program. and thanks for being with us. >> thank you very much. coming up, hillary clinton's campaign must be in panic mode ahead of tomorrow's debate. she dropped ten points in just one week. that's coming up. then later tonight -- >> so we say down, down, usa. down, down, usa. down, down! >> that twisted chant from this weekend's anniversary of the million man march coming up later. the remarks made by louis farrakhan and obama's former pastor, jeremiah wright is back.

welcome back to "hannity." less than 24 hours after the first democratic debate, hillary clinton is plunging in the polls according to a new reuters poll, the democratic front-runner dropped a whopping ten points in one single week. now, hillary clinton's shaky poll numbers have many commentators casting doubt on her electability and on friday a discussion on hbo's real time with bill maher got very heated after one guest called hillary clinton, quote, a talent-free hack. watch this. >> who is up against this guy? this unbelievably useless, terrible candidate of hillary clinton who has shown no -- >> why do you say that? >> has she ever given a speech that you were inspired by? does she have any good retail ski skills? >> i find her slogan, are you ready for hillary, to perfectly capsulize how i feel about her. are you ready for hillary? am i excited? no. >> she's a talent-free hack.
>> she's not talent-free, andrew and she's not a hack. >> what's her talents. >> she's incredibly smart. >> what has she done in her entire life in washington? >> the rnc released this brand-new ad. >> i did not e-mail any classified material to anyone. >> a federal government watchdog has determined there was classified information. >> did, in fact, contain classified information. >> total lack of accountability. like my problems have nothing to do with me. >> they're playing it off as if it's a partisan witch hunt. >> now you have the fbi and "the new york times" chasing this story. >> you think the american public is that stupid? >> all right, joining us now with reaction, former clinton pollster, fox news contributor doug schoen as well as tammy bruce. it gets worse. i did not e-mail any classified material. she did get an e-mail from sid vicious blumenthal and in the e-mail that she forwarded to
someone else, the name of a human resource on the ground, a cia operative, which means if the russians, who tried to hack in five times, if the north koreans and others hacked into the account, that means that that individual would likely be dead. so she lied when she said i did not e-mail any classified material, case in point. >> there are two things we're seeing in the polls. there are doubts, as you suggest, sean, about her credibility. she's also 16 points ahead in the real clear politics average. she's ahead in iowa. she is slightly behind in new hampshire. no polls out today -- >> ten points in a week. who drops ten points in a week? >> the polls in outlier, the cbs poll had her up 19, nevada and south carolina up 50 and 22. she's had a great lead. >> i want her to win. >> so do i. >> we probably agree she's going to jail before all is said and done. >> you know who drops that fast
is wile e. coyote. she imitates a robot. she does that extremely well. this has to be shocking to her campaign. we've seen her fold out bill clinton. this is a woman who has spent a long time saying she's not running for his third term. >> that may not be the case. >> this is now a situation where this is a woman who has wanted to do things on her own for herself and now once again she's relying on the jerk who got them in such trouble before. >> let's go to "60 minutes" this weekend. even obama recognized she made a mistake, a huge mistake. he tried to downplay it, but he really didn't -- he kind of threw her under the bus. watch. did you know about hillary clinton's use of a private e-mail server while she was secretary of state? >> no. >> do you think it posed a national security problem? >> i don't think it posed a national security problem. i think that it was a mistake that she's acknowledged, and as
a general proposition, when we're in these offices, we have to be more sensitive and stay as far away from a line as possible when it comes to how we handle information, how we handle our own personal data and she made a mistake, she's acknowledged it. >> the problem was the next question was, steve croft says other people have made mistakes in your administration and gone to jail. >> right. >> that same mistake. >> and what he said is that she didn't create a national security problem. he also said that there's no intent of -- from her -- >> david petraeus had no intent. >> no, he did. he showed it to his mistress. >> the reason she set this up was to bypass any congressional investigation. >> even his denial that he knew is odd because he received e-mails from her. and if you look at the outgoing e-mails, clinton e-mails dot
com. so that's strange. a lukewarm defense. >> it was pretty good, wasn't it? >> it was lukewarm. it was perhaps something he had to do. obviously joe biden is someone that he supports and that he likes. i think this is just short of throwing her under the bus. >> i think it helped her because biden is thinking of running. >> last question, a cia lawyer calling these actions of hillary lethal. watch this. >> even inside cia, in e-mails, internal e-mails or cables or conversations, he never mentioned, you never talk about that you name a source. you use a pseudonym. so i mean, honestly it was -- >> and going over a public server that's held in somebody's home in chappaqua, new york. >> well, joe, it could be literally lethal. if someone is trying to -- who has access to that? who was trying to hack into it? if this was a foreign -- if this is a foreign-based source living in libya, let's say, he got out
of the cia source over there, you're a dead man. so couldn't be more serious. >> is she going to jail? >> look, this is pretty serious. i mean, this is a revelation of a human asset in libya likely before the benghazi consulate attack where we had a cia stationed. we had a special prosecutor with valerie plame. if this doesn't demand one, i don't know what does. >> valerie plame wasn't even an operative. >> we have a hearing october 22nd. as kevin mccarthy said, it's purely political. we'll see what happens. >> kevin mccarthy is wrong. i think he misspoke. he did the interview with me, i think he was just inarticulate. before the attack, during the attack and lied after the attack. now we know she compromised the life of an operative in libya. >> if that happened that is a great tragedy. >> it happened. the e-mail is there. >> she's likely to be the next
president of the united states. >> if that is more than a tragedy, it's a crime. >> we will see, sean. let's let the justice process play itself out. >> all right. >> before tammy sentences her to jail. >> a prima facie case on so many levels, she'll do it to herself. coming up next here on "hannity" -- >> america is under divine judgment as we speak. >> screwy louis farrakhan at this weekend's 20th anniversary of the million man march. we'll play you more of those controversial comments, also reverend wright was there. then later tonight -- >> said the people in germany didn't speak up when nazrism was on the rise. do you think it's that close here or is that hyperbole. >> this proves the mainstream media is running afraid of the gop candidates.

welcome back to "hannity." this weekend people gathered in our nation's capitol to commemorate the million man march. nation of islam leader screwy louis farrakhan spoke for nearly two hours and issued this dire warning. >> america is under divine judgment as we speak. when i leave you today, the calamities are going to get stronger because god wants america to let us go. not integrate us. let us go. and give us a good send-off. >> and that's not all. one woman took to the microphone and led the crowd in this insane, disturbing chant. listen to this. >> so we say down, down, usa, down, down, usa. down, down. >> guess who else was there?
the man whose church president obama attended for nearly 20 years, the reverend jeremiah -- of course he's from the church of gd america. watch this. >> please welcome jesus was a palestinian. the palestinian people have had the europeans come and take their country. the youth in ferguson and the youth in palestine have united together to remind us that the dots need to be connected. and what dr. king said injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere has implications for us as we stand beside our palestinian brothers and sisters who have been done one of the most egregious injustices in the 21st centuries. joining us the executive director of theteaparty.net, niger innis. farrakhan talked about jews
having no forgiveness in them. find me a jew that forgives hitler. this goes to the heart of something i brought up in 2007 and 2008. are you going to tell me that president obama sat in that man's pew, the pastor of gd america and he didn't know where this man was coming from? and you believe that? obama said he's like family to me. i can no longer disown him than i can the black community. you think as he sat there and listened to this virulent racism, this chant, down, down, usa, that obama didn't know where that man was coming from? >> i think that obama knew but that jeremiah wright was a good pastor. >> a church of gd america. >> that's what you want to call it. >> a lot of work in the community. >> no, no, god bless america. >> but that's taken one snippet. >> you want snippets? is that a snippet? >> let's talk about this march, the rally. >> louis farrakha
anti-semitic rally. >> a five-hour rally. >> anti-semitism. >> there were a lot of people talking about police brutality, talking about black on black violence, talking about issues that matter. you want to pick this out. >> for hours. >> let's talk about the fact that most people went there for -- >> okay, you say that. let me ask you a question. if i attended a rally where there was klansmen and racists and anti-semites, wouldn't that reflect on my character? >> well, yes, it sure will. >> that reflects on the character of those to farrakhan's. >> they didn't go there for that purpose. >> as somebody as farrakhan as racist as him spoke -- >> farrakhan is more than some of these comments that you want pull out. judaism is a gutter religion. >> i don't have to agree with everything he says. >> niger, thread the needle. always a razor's edge making excuses for the relationship with wright and for farrakhan's virulent anti-semitism.
>> there is no excuse. in fact, it's a distraction tactic on the part of what i call the unholy trinity from the black chicago elite, that being president obama, that being jeremiah wright and louis farrah con. you know the old song clean up your own backyard before you knock on the neighbor's door. these guys are talking about palestinians and anti-semitic comments and let black america go. these guys are from chicago. they need to clean up their own backyard. there have been over 2300 shootings -- [ everyone speaking at once ] >> niger, i have a question for you, do you think obama knew everything about wright? >> of course he did. >> of course he knew. and yet the american people gave him a pass. why would they have done that? >> because the desire on the part of the american people, both black, white, latino and asian, to turn the page on that vicious episode of slavery is
deeply felt, and obama and these far left progressives know how to tap into that white guilt and that desire for their own ends. but black america, though, is watching -- you watch my words, sean hannity, and benjamin, black america is waking up, they're turning the page on these progressives that have failed. >> we're out of time. >> when president obama ran for president, he ran on hope and change and unity. >> hope and change. you're right. we have more people unemployed, a doubling of the debt. >> and bush 100,000 jobs a month. >> that's what you want to talk about? excuse me? >> think about the infrastructure. >> and more people are on the unemployment lines and out of the labor force since the 1970s. >> but the economy is -- >> i love the fact that. >> especially coming from. >> our economy is doing better.
>> when we come back, main street america's the latest attacks, stay with us. [eerie music] i am the ghost of cookies' past...residue. oh...so gross. well, you didn't use pam. so it looks like you're stuwith me! bargain brand cooking spray leaves annoying residue. that's why there's pam. with their airline credit card miles. sometimes those seats cost a ridiculous number of miles... or there's a fee to use them. i know. it's so frustrating. they'd be a lot happier with the capital one venture card. and you would, too! why? it's so easy with venture. you earn unlimited double miles on every purchase, every day. just book any flight you want then use your miles to cover the cost. now, that's more like it. what's in your wallet?
welcome back to "hannity." so the mainstream media continues to try to damage dr. ben carson's presidential campaign by putting words in his mouth or taking them out of context deliberately. take a look at some of his comments. you decide for yourself. >> i would not advocate that we put a muslim in charge of this nation. i absolutely would not agree with that. >> if there had been no gun control laws in europe at that time, would 6 million jews have been slaughtered? >> i think the likelihood of hitler being able to accomplish his goals would have been greatly diminished if the people had been armed. not only would i probably not cooperate with them, i would not just stand there and let them shoot me. i would say, hey, guys, everybody attack him. he may shoot be, but he can't get us all. >> you said you would be very comfortable if kindergarten
teachers had guns in the classroom. >> not all kindergarten teachers. i said people who are trained and understand all the implications, and you obviously are not going to just have a weapon sitting on the kindergarten teacher's desk. the guy comes in and puts the gun in my ribs. and i just said, i believe that you want the guy behind the counter. >> in that calm way? okay. >> he said, oh, okay. >> predictably the media is not a fan of dr. carson's style. now here's how thab been spinning his remarks. watch this. >> you said the people in germany didn't speak up when the nazism was on the rise. and i guess what i wonder is do you think it's that close here or is that just hyperbole, extermination of the entire race which is a nazi goal, that's a big thing to compare our situation to. >> you suggest arming more people even kindergarten teachers. are more guns really the answer? >> it could be security guards, not necessarily the teachers,
correct? >> you suggested that if the jews had been armed, if they had had guns, hitler could not have succeeded. isn't that mischaracterizing the enormity of the -- >> here with reaction, the black sphere's kevin jackson and fox news contributor our friend ebony williams is here with us. i believe they've taken him so much out of context. for example, i want armed guards in school, retired policemen, retired military people. wouldn't you prefer they be there if, god forbid, there's a shooting at your son or daughter's school. >> they're so frustrated with the way dr. ben carson is campaigning. quite frankly, i find it fantastic to watch. because he's not the one-liner guy. he won't be limited to sound bites. he's forcing the media to take his full concern, his full position into account. either they're unwilling or unable to do so. it really bodes poorly on them and well on him. he's winning with this. >> i had dr. ben carson on about the comments with a muslim
president. if they support shariah and they don't denounce the treatment of women in other countries, but yeah, i'm against that. very specific details people keep out. >> very full and specific. dr. carson benefits when he's specific. i have to say there's a concern from many on the left that ben carson wants to eliminate programs that he himself might have benefited from. if he can clarify that position, that again bodes very well for him. and it broadens the electorate that he will appeal to. >> let me go to you, kevin. look, not everybody is going to rush a guy that's in a classroom shooting. in this particular case, in oregon, the guy was saying, you, stand up, are you a christian? if he said yes, you got shot in the head or if you didn't answer or said something else, you were shot in the legs. you're trained in martial arts, i'm trained in martial arts. i'm trained in the use of fire drm, you're trained in the use of firearm. that's what we train to do.
i don't expect everybody would do that. but if people would do that, it would make sense because then he can't kill everybody. i don't find that comment at all controversial but the media went insane with it. >> the media wants to go insane over stuff like that because we're raising a nation of lemmings. we're raising a group of people who are no longer ready to be warriors to protect america, to protect our way of life, to protect the constitutional principles that ben carson talks about. his book is dedicated to standing up for constitutional principle. look, it's a very simple thing to ask, sean. what would you do to protect your children? it's a kneejerk response to say i would do anything to protect my kids. i've got four sons. if there's a gunman somewhere, i won't sit around and get asked a question about my religion. >> all we do is talk about it, we have plans to train together in our martial arts. we have different studies, but we're on the same page. you and i would rush them together. we'd look at each other and we'd
wing and we'd go. but even if that happened once in a while or if we had retired policemen and retired military people in schools, maybe this would happen less often. and i have been arguing for a long time we need to defend these kids because they are sitting ducks in these gun-free zones, as they call them. >> but to that point, sean, if i was teaching kirnt garden, i couldn't do that. i'm not trained the way you and kevin are. >> kevin and i will train you. >> just making sure i'm trained. i want to be ready. >> i don't think anyone should pick up a firearm until they're trained, ever. >> i think the bigger issue here is around just them making a mockery of everything dr. carson says and, in ekt -- >> you think it's because -- >> -- delegitimize him -- i think partly it is. he's a real threat. you can't make a brain surgeon an idiot. they've invested in an idiot for a long time and they've got to marginalize dr. ben carson.
>> wait a minute. they did this to herman cain, too. he performed over 15,000 surgeries and he also consulted in thousands more. he did the most complicated surgeries imaginable. and he had six cases, cases which is negligiable in terms of suits against him. >> i think he's a different type of candidate. >> he's a black conservative. they're treated horribly in this country. >> they are treated horribly. anyone that doesn't apply to the limited belief -- >> one quick point. if dr. ben carson wasn't running for president he'd be canonized in the black community. >> welcome aboard, by the way. >> thank you. >> and coming up next our ask sean segment and an important question of the day, straight

welcome back to "hannity" should the dnc, debbie wasserman-shultz apologize for her slander saying the g.o.p. doesn't want women in? thank you for sending in your questions and you might want to ask questions like this. >> hey, sean, do you think donald trump is a viable candidate that has the country's best interest at hard? or just enough money to afford to say what everybody is think
something. >> great question. there is 0 doubt as someone who interviewed him tonight and knows him well and interviewed him many times, i think donald trump, i don't think he wanted to get into this race but like a lot of us, he sees what's happening around the world with putin and iran, and what's happening in the middle east and terrorism, and i sense in him a genuine concern about the direction of the country, he looks at the economy, and he says why are 95 million americans out of the work force? why 50 million in poverty? why has the median income gone down $5,000? so i believe he's sincere. i think he wants america to succeed. i sense not only in him but all candidates. great question. if you want to send us a question go to twitter using
