so the bad news for this woman is she ain't no julia roberts. the good news is she has a great lawyer. good luck, mark. i think. good night, everybody. tonight, with just 26 days until iowa, the candidates are pounding the campaign trail. >> we're going to have a good time tonight. we're going to have a good time. >> plus, the rogue regime in north korea claims to have tested a hydrogen bomb. carly fiorina's blame's hillary clinton's policy failures. she's here tonight with more. >> iowa and new hampshire are going to whittle this field down from 12 to 5. >> chris christie now gaining traction in new hampshire. >> it's important for us to do well here in new hampshire. i think from the reaction we're getting here we feel moment really moving in our direction. >> the new jersey governor explains the importance of the

in an interview yesterday trump suggested that the presidential eligibility of ted cruz may be challenged because he was born in canada. telling republicans they'll ask to ask themselves do we want a candidate who would be tied up in court for two years? it would be a precarious one for republicans because he'd be running and the courts take a long time to make that decision. you don't want to be running and have that hanging over your head. i'd hate to see this get in his way but a lot of people are talking about it and a lot of states are talking about it strongly about the fact that he was born in canada and he has a double passport. senator ted cruz responded in typical fashion. he simply tweeted out in clip from the old show "happy days." take a look. >> there he goes.
♪ >> and joining us with reaction from the "washington times" editor in chief and laura ingraham and fox news senior correspondent geraldo rivera. you and geraldo are the lawyers on this. i see no issue here for ted cruz. >> i have no issue whatsoever. he has duel citizenship because his mom is a u.s. citizen, so he gets naturalized citizen as a result of that. this has already been looked into. in fact, on my radio show today chris christie came to the defense of ted cruz noting that -- i guess at a rally, one of those iran rallies on capitol hill, i believe even donald trump, according to christie, had acknowledged that ted cruz was eligibility and just because he was born in canada, in this case -- >> he gave up his canadian
citizenship. you think there might be something to this? >> i totally disagree. i think trump was brilliant to raise this issue. when my wife was pregnant, you have to come home, he has to be born in the united states. a child of a citizen of the united states born abroad or born where so ever is a citizen if he or she so chooses. there's no doubt that ted cruz is a citizen. >> but that's natural born. >> but he has to be a natural born -- >> that is natural born. >> let's go back. the naturalization act three years after the constitution said the children of citizens shall be considered natural born citizens. that's in 1790. five years later they amended the naturalization act of 1795 and said the children of citizens wherever born are citizens is excluded the phrase natural born citizens when they amended. >> geraldo, that's a stretch,
come on. that's a stretch. >> -- when he says it has never -- >> herageraldo is -- >> mccain has never been -- >> john mccain wasn't born in the united states -- >> people aren't listening. >> it's never been litigated. >> one at a time. laura. >> geraldo believes that a federal court is going to rule that ted cruz is not eligible to run for the presidency? i'm loving this. i want to see the -- >> never ruled -- >> yeah, but you're inferring by the absence of language, which is a sometimes used statutory interpretation tool but not a very effective one. >> why did they drop the phrase natural born? trump even said they should declare that he's a natural citizen. >> trump is right that this is a huge distraction. >> i don't think so. >> charles hurt. >> i would litigate against laura. >> ted cruz has a larger problem here. the problem here is that he is
incapable of responding to donald trump with anything other than some sort of passive aggressive goofy little film clip from "happy days" which is sort of what we've seen this entire campaign. until he learns to land a real blow on donald trump, until anybody -- >> charles, i agree with you all throughout the process. i think you're wrong here. >> i agree. >> if you look at trump's attacks on jeb bush, they've been pretty devastating. same thing with ben carson. even marco. ted cruz by, oh, i'm going to laugh it off, has been the best response of everybody. >> i don't disagree with you that is is probably not going to be a very effective attack on ted cruz, but until somebody steps up and actually has a forceful attack on donald trump and actually takes him down a notch, donald trump is just going to keep plowing through -- >> charlie, why is that good for the anti-establishment candidate
to be shooting at each other? i would argue something different. i would argue that the two of them should work together until it's down to the two of them. until they clear cut the field of jeb, marco, kasich and anyone else left over in the gutter of politics. >> i agree. >> take the road, the blush off the rose of ted cruz. he's not even a natural born citizen argument will resonate for at least the next few weeks. >> i think you're going birther ballistic, and i don't think it's going to work. >> no. >> let's talk about where this campaign goes. 26 days. now we're getting down to the game beginning. if i had to guess, i would say probably cruz has the advantage in iowa, but moving on from there, i would say it then becomes donald trump territory in new hampshire. laura, your reaction? >> i think trump could surprise people in iowa. probably not, but you've been to those caucuses. these are raucous events. if there's a movement. the one that i would point to is
the obama caucus in 2008. everyone thought hillary was a shoo-in. when i walked out of that des moines high school, i said to my friends from college, it's going to be obama. they were going crazy for obama in des moines. >> the passion for trump, though, the passion is bigger. >> 50% of trump supporters that won't vote for anybody else. so there's more passion on his side than any other candidate. >> i would argue trump is the obama of this cycle. >> look at the crowds. >> i think there's tremendous charisma. >> is that your endorsement? are you supporting -- >> i'm not ready to nearly go there. >> what do you mean not nearly -- >> he's definitely in my top two. no doubt in my view that donald trump will be the republican nominee. >> do you think he'd be a good president? >> i think he'd be a great president. being a president is being a ceo essentially. he has some hateful ideas that really bug the hell out of me.
we don't need to go through that. >> laura, what do you hear -- >> organized, brilliant businessman. >> oh, my god, first of all, trump, this is like the first -- i'm just teasing you geraldo -- bad news that trump has gotten in a long time. you have geraldo saying that's his guy? wait a second. i'm going to leave right now. >> you're taking off? >> i don't know what to say. >> i think geraldo is right, though. if cruz and trump until the establishment or unless the establishment figures rally around one person, i still think the best person for them to rally around is chris christie. he's the most interesting -- >> i agree with that, too. >> there's a lot of attacks now against him because he was doing well in iowa. he's now in double digit in two polls. >> he's going to handle heroin like no one can handle it. >> the amazing thing to me is everyone predicted trump's demise. i talked to a real estate person
over the holidays. you don't get it, you don't understand what's going on out there. there's a reason that trump and cruz are one and two and they've taken 50% of the electorate away because there's real palpable anger out there and a frustration and a feel of betrayal. >> those establishment people have been wrong at every single turn with every single one of these predictions. now they're saying if we go with him as the nominee, he's going to get slaughtered by hillary clinton. well, is he really? i don't know that that's true. you look at the way he went after bill clinton. the first time in bill clinton's entire political career -- >> he's been speechless. >> he was silenced. >> i took him five seconds to recover. laura, does donald trump put in play new york, new jersey, pennsylvania? do we look at an entire different electoral map? >> i think when i read what craig shirley is writing on this, reagan biographer, he's
talking about the movement election. a movement election is a different type of election. it's an election where the people start moving into a direction because they think the country is failing or going down the tubes or the establishment has failed them. we saw it in 1980. we all remember. we saw it in 1984. we did see it in 2008. that was a movement election. you're beginning to see the real signs of this taking hold beyond just new hampshire and south carolina, but to interesting states like nevada, perhaps even, even a state like colorado, which has gone very purple in recent years. i think people are fed up with washington. >> real quick. >> and they want to change. >> geraldo, can he win new york? you are the quintessential new yorker. >> he might. you mentioned colorado. colorado is a swing state like nevada, like north carolina, like florida. it all depends. trump has offended mexicans and muslims and millennials and some women. will those offended people be energized to show up in the way
that trump supporters are energized to show up? it will be an energy. it will be -- again. >> never said laura and i -- >> and more people than anyone dreamed. >> he'll have people registering to vote who haven't voted in their entire adult lives, but he might have the opposite effect. will the puerto ricans turn out in florida, for example? >> last question. if he's one of your top two, who is the other one? >> on the republican side? >> in general. who are your top two people? >> i like chris christie also. i like him a lot as a person. he didn't do anything to help me when i wanted to run for senate in new jersey. but i cut him slack. >> did you win the "apprentice"? >> i didn't win, but he kept me on board. >> didn't bill clinton look really tired and old? >> he had a slight tremor. >> but i love the guy. >> look at how vigorous geraldo
looks. >> trump got the better of that exchange with clinton. >> big time. >> and it shut them down big time. >> good to see you all. thank you. coming up next tonight on this busy news night here on "hannity" -- >> they're collecting, all of that not going to be affected. i'm going to keep beating the drum. i'm delighted the president announced the actions he did today. >> hillary clinton is apparently very happy about obama clamping down on your second amendment rights. we'll check in with bo dietl, sheriff david clarke and katie pavlich. and chris christie is rising in the poll in new hampshire. he's here to explain why. north korea says it tested a hydrogen bomb. carly fiorina says this is yet another example of hillary's failed policy. that's coming up along with donald trump jr. you get a cold. you can't breathe through your nose. suddenly, you're a mouthbreather.

a rival group to the national rifle association. it's called the democratic party. and as far as president obama and mrs. bill clinton, they're anti-gun bigots. they are utterly intolerant to anybody else's view when it comes to -- other than their own when it comes to the second amendment, shooting sports and self-defense. you watch, by next summer, she'll be photographed walking around in a field like she's hunting, participating in the shooting sports with a gun resting on her shoulder probably holing it upside down. >> michael dukakis in a tank. >> if you want to reduce violence -- and the president knows this -- you target criminals. you do not otherwise law abiding citizens. and you don't make them have to go jump through hoops in a higher threshold to exercise their second amendment right. if he goes after the real perpetrators of violence, he would have to target the underclass black male who disproportionately is involved
in all this violence and he doesn't want to do that. >> let me freed the ap, katie pavlich. they said what the president announced would not have prevented the slaughters of 20 first graders at sandy hook elementary or 14 county workers at a holiday party in san bernardino, and it would have had no impact in keeping weapons from the hand of suspects in several of the deadliest recent mass shootings that have occurred that have resulted and spurred these calls for more gun control. so they're really feel-good legislation. it's not going to do anything. >> it's not going to do anything. and it's really disappointing, because the president has an opportunity to work with organizations like the nra which has done significant work when it comes to keeping guns out of the hands of criminals. hillary clinton can attack the nra all she wants, but the fact is it has a higher approval rating than hillary clinton does when it comes to trustworthiness, that's for sure. and the bottom line is that the nra has done work with with past previous presidents in terms of
gettingmental health legislation on the books to make sure people who are mentally ill cannot get their hands on firearms. this is about grandstanding for hillary clinton, about grandstanding for barack obama and it really is a shame. bottom line is if the president really wants to keep guns out of the hands of criminals, maybe his justice department should stop releasing felons, many of which are illegal immigrants, on to the streets of america. they can start there. >> the president cries here, bo, and remember that guy got beheaded, james foley. he gives a quick 30-second comment and races off. he didn't want to miss his tee time. >> i'm glad the president watches your show. this is the first time that the president mentioned chicago in any of his speeches. >> second time. >> about the kids dying in chicago. furthermore, on top of it, we're letting people out of jail on these drug things, these a-1 felonies, a lot of these drug dealers were involved with murders and guns. and if this president wants to
do an executive order like i said on your show many times, get the fbi, the atf together and get to our inner cities and a task force to take those illegal guns off the street. not honest gun owners like of the second amendment, people that want to protect themself. because i'll tell you right now, when isis comes to this country we have 300 million weapons out there and we're going to protect ourselves, and isis is not going to shoot me. i'm not going to put my head down, get on my knees and get my head chopped off. i'm going to have my .9 millimeter. >> i'm going to have my 40 and my a.r. if i'm in that room, i want a sheriff clarke there that's armed or a bo dietl that's armed or katie pavlich or sean hannity armed. i don't understand why people don't understand that. that's simple to me, that's common sense. >> sure, but i want as many law abiding citizens to arm themselves in this country as we can get so that i have the partner that i need to beat back
this sort of violence. and in these mass shooting situations, the great equalizer is a law abiding citizen in that situation with a firearm that can take action because when seconds count, the police are usually minutes away. >> you know, there's so many officers, so many cops across this country are retired. they see a cop pull them over, i'll retired from the job and you're watching over that cop. that's what we have. we have other good law abiding citizens that would stand up for the people of america. >> thank you all for being with us. governor chris christie is hitting the campaign trail hard in new hampshire. his numbers are going up. he'll talk about it. then later donald trump's son don jr. talks about his father's campaign. also north korea claims to have tested a hydrogen bomb. 2016 republican presidential candidate carly fiorina also here with reaction. ny raises your rates. maybe you should've done more research on them. for drivers with accident forgiveness, liberty mutual won't raise your rates

"hannity." 016 republican presidential candidate governor chris christie has been campaigning hard in new hampshire and his efforts are paying off because his poll numbers are rising in the granite state. i spoke with the new jersey governor about all this and more. take a look. governor, welcome back. >> happy to be back, sean, thanks for having me. >> you've been spending a lot of time in new hampshire, but it appears to be paying off for you. two polls you're in double digits. how important now is it for you to do well there? you spent far less time in iowa, but you have been spending time there. how important is new hampshire to the campaign? >> it's important to everybody. and it's certainly important to us. iowa and new hampshire are going to winnow this field in my view from 12 candidates down to 4 or 5. it's important for us to do well in iowa and do well in new hampshire. from the reaction we're getting here we feel momentum really moving in our direction. i think people are listening to our message of securing the homeland first, keeping the american people safe.
and improving our economic situation. those things are being received well and we're moving forward here. >> let me ask you about the president's position on guns and his executive action on guns. you call the president a petulant child. explain. >> listen, this is a president who came into office, as you know, in 2008 with a big majority in the house and with a filibuster proof majority in the senate. because of his policies and his conduct in office, seven years later we have our largest majority in the house since 1928 and we have a majority in the senate and we have 31 of the 60 governorships. now since the president's lost all that, he now has decided he's just going to write laws on his own. he's going to give us edicts as if he's a king. that's a petulant child. he's refusing to listen to the will of the american people, which a is they reject his policies. that's why i call him a petulant child. he's doing it on guns, he did it on immigration, he did it on obamacare. >> aren't the republicans
emboldening him? i mean, they said they would stop. they ran in 2014. give us the senate, we'll stop the president's proposal for executive actions on immigration. they said they would defund the department of homeland security, then they caved in, then they gave in. >> listen, the united states congress has been weak. they've been weak and they've been vacillating, they haven't done their job. what we need in washington is a strong republican president who knows how to govern. you know, sean, in new jersey over the last six years i have made tough decisions and implemented them with the legislature of the opposite party. i've done more in new jersey than they ever thought about doing in the united states senate and in washington, d.c. you're right, they have emboldened because they've been unwilling to be tough with him. when i get to the white house, there will be no hesitation from me to make the tough decisions because i've been doing it for the last 13 years as a former federal prosecutor and now as
the governor of new jersey.
>> let me ask you about your positions in new jersey. new jersey has some of the toughest gun laws in the country. in '95, you ran on a platform of supporting the assault weapons ban. you said that gop opponents who wanted to repeal it were dangerous, crazy and radical and you supported in 2009. you ran against opposing attempts to permit conceal carry laws in new jersey. where do you stand now? because you appear to have changed. >> well, listen, in 1995, sean, i was 32 years old. and i've changed my mind. the biggest reason was my seven years as a federal prosecutor. what i learned in those seven years was we were spending too much time talking about gun law against law abiding citizens and not nearly enough time about enforcing the gun laws strongly against criminals. and i saw the difference when i did that for seven years as a federal prosecutor. i learned the difference. i learned what the limitations are of these laws that people are talking about and how they much, much more greatly infringe
on law abiding citizens than they do anything to prevent crime. having learned that, my position's changed. quite frankly, if i had the choice now i'd make new jersey a state where you can have an issue on conceal and carry. our legislature won't do that. but i have made
sure that we're making it easier for folks to get a permit in new jersey because they deserve the right to do that as law abiding citizens. >> i asked the question all the time of people that are on the anti-gun side. and i say, okay, if you're in a situation like the tragedy and the murderous rage in san bernardino and you're in a room like that, would you want somebody that knew how to use a firearm and had one with them or if somebody breaks into your house, what are you going to do if they are armed and you are not? and there's not a good answer. there's no good answer except you're a sitting duck for the most part if you're not armed. so is that part of what you learned as being a prosecutor? >> there's no question about that.
and i also learned that you've got to get those people that you're talking about on the folks who are in the murderous rage in san bernardino or the person who enters your home to try to rob you or to try to do harm to your family, you have to get those people off the streets, too. and the fact is that we're not spending nearly enough time. this is part of the president's problem. where's he been when the crime rate and murder rate has gone up in chicago 18%, when the murder rate in new york is up 11%. instead he and bill de blasio and rahm emanuel is not supporting the police departments and letting them do their jobs. so we have criminals who have easy access to guns, then in places like chicago and new york -- and you know this because of your experience in new york -- it is incredibly difficult for a law abiding citizen to get a gun. is that making new york or chicago safer? it seems to me that the evidence shows that it's not. what really changed me as a prosecutor, i got to learn the evidence and what's really going on out in the world of law
enforcement. that's why my position changed. >> governor, congratulations on those poll numbers in new hampshire. thank you for being with us. we appreciate your time as always. >> sean, thank you for having me on and happy new year to you. >> happy new year, governor. coming up, the world remains on edge after north korea claims to have successfully tested a hydrogen bomb. 2016 republican presidential candidate carly fiorina says this is an example of hillary clinton's foreign policy failure. she'll join us with more. but first, i sit down with donald trump ap son don jr. and he explains why he thinks his dad is the best republican candidate to become the next commander in chief. that and more on this busy news night tonight on "hannity." 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. oh no...

fundraising again in new orleans. over the last 3 years, rubio has missed important national security hearings and missed more total votes than any other senator. politics first: that's the rubio way. right to rise usa is responsible for the content of this message.
how are you, sir? >> good to see, sean. how are you? >> here you are, the son of this famous man, hard working man, well known billionaire, makes a lot of news. did any of this politics stuff surprise you? >> no, not at all. i mean, i know when my father puts his mind to something, he's going to do a phenomenal job. he's a great businessman, an incredible track record. i know he understands what this country needs and what it wants. he's sick of being on the sidelines watching a bunch of incompetents in his mind. in our business world these people wouldn't last five minutes. and he's sick of them making decisions that are costing our children and their children behind them trillions of dollars and giving up the great power that we've built up over the last 200 years. and it feels like our politicians, they just want to give that back. >> even before your dad got into this race, i would go over occasionally and interview your dad, and there you are. and there eric is and there
ivanka is. and you guys worked very, very closely with them on a daily basis. is there any part of your dad that maybe you know that maybe the general public doesn't pick up watching his speeches or his interviews or reading his tweets? >> well, listen, i think a lot of people see, obviously, the business side of him. but he's just a great guy. we enjoyed the holidays so much. to be able to spend time with him when he's not necessarily working or not doing the political thing. he's much more of a blue collar american. i say that in jest a little bit, but he's a blue collar guy and he knows how to have fun. he knows more about sports than anybody else there. the ribbing we give each other at the christmas holidays is incredible. he's much more of an ordinary american and a proper american than people would probably believe. >> he's been involved in a lot of controversy since he's got involved in this. i would argue he's raised the bar of where political correctness is. i've used the term, don, that he
transcends conventional political gravity. at any point, do you say, you give him advice, at any point did you ever flinch and say, oh, dad, why did you tweet that? why do you say that? do you speak bluntly to him about what we think? >> we do always speak very bluntly with him. but in the end, the things he's saying are things that need to be said, they're conversations that haven't been had. everyone knows about it. if you go to a diner in the middle of america, people are having these conversations but our politicians are too scared to bring it up because they're scared of offending the 0.002% of the country that may somehow be subject to what the conversation may be. ridiculous. he's a straight-talking guy, he's always been, he has a history of that in business as a personality for the last 35 years. that's what he'll bring to the table. bring straight honest conversation. and while they may be sensitive, they have to be said. >> one of the things he brought up this week, we heard the
president talking about guns and getting all emotional. your father said if guns don't keep you safe talking to hillary clinton in support of the president, disarm your body guards. it's interesting because every year in new york your dad, i am mentioned in the article, there are certain new yorkers that have pistal carry permits and he's a staunch believer in the second amendment. what do you think about the president's proposals? and more importantly what your dad's response to hillary was that i thought was really strong? >> i think his response is 100% right. easy to say no one should have guns when they're guarded by people with mp-5s. i'm mentioned in that article because i shoot virtually every weekend. i'm a big outdoorsman. i believe in all those traditions. it's important for people to be able to defend themselves. the impositions that this government is trying to put on now the typical death by a thousand cuts. we'll take a little bit here, we'll take a little bit here and it doesn't end the conversations in 25, 50 years. it starts the conversation again
the next day what they're looking to take back. really it's about freedoms. if i want to hand one of my old shotguns of 50 years to my grandkid one day, i have to good through a federal transfer. it's crazy. the rules that have been imposed, the rules that are already on the books haven't been effective. if you look at the places where the strictest gun control measures, california, los angeles, barack obama's home state in chicago, they're a disaster and they have the greatest rules in the world. his rules are only going to have an effect and impact on people actually willing to play by the rules which is exactly the opposite of what it's supposed to do. it makes no sense to me. >> last question, having been to trump tower many times and i've gotten to know you and your brother and your sister, you work very closely with your dad. if your father becomes president. >> yes. >> do all three of you go to washington? are you going to be in the oval office? have you discussed that? >> you know, i think we've joked about it a little bit. i think he'd give me the department of the interior because of my love of the outdoors. we can get that going.
but again, i think the fact that he's running now as opposed to in 2012 that he's had enough faith in myself and my siblings to be able to run the company. i mean, we've got tens of thousands of people that are under his direct employ. those people, he wouldn't leave a company and leave those people and their lives and everything they've put into it at risk if he didn't think there was competent leadership to take over after him. the fact that he's running now is the greatest to our abilities ta because he's not the guy to jeopardize those people's livelihoods to go do something where he wouldn't be in charge. >> don jr., great to see you again. thanks for being with us. >> great to see you. >> coming up, the rogue regime in north korea claims that it successfully carried out a hydrogen bomb test. 2016 republican presidential candidate carly fiorina says this is yet another example of hillary clinton's failed foreign policies. she joins us next.

evaluate north korea's claim. earlier today carly fiorina tweeted that the situation with north korea is yet another example of hillary clinton's failed foreign policies and she joins us now with more. welcome back carly, how are you? almost called you hillary. that was a huge mistake. >> i saw that. i heard that. >> i might as well start cursing. i mean, that's worse than cursing at somebody. you know, when she was herself, when she was performed going for a confirmation hearing, she actually made the statement that she would embark on a very aggressive effort to stop north korea's nuclear program. that is evidence that that failed. >> when you don't respond to bad behavior, you get more of it. not only has she gotten every foreign policy challenge wrong as the secretary of state, she has failed to respond. when our embassy is attacked in benghazi by terrorists, and
there is no response, you get more bad behavior. when russia invades ukraine and there is no response, you get more bad behavior. when syria crosses the red line and there is no response, you get more bad behavior. when iran launches tests of ballistic missiles and there is no response, you get more bad behavior. when north korea attacks sony pictures and there is no response, you get more bad behavior. you cannot lead from behind. we must respond when we are attacked or provoked. >> i want to know -- i don't know if you saw this fatwa released by reuters that goes into detail how to be a good rapist by isis terrorists if they have female prisoners and they lay out the rules for this. i'm thinking what are we going to do to stop this? where is the plan to win this
battle, the this conflict of civilization? we know this is a worldwide caliphate they're advancing. but nobody seems to want to talk about it. >> that's right. >> hillary doesn't, obama doesn't. >> well, they don't. we they don't. we have candidates on our side that don't have a plan, either. i've laid out a plan for how to keep people safe here at home and how to wage war and win by denying isis territory overseas. we must deny them a territory to your point, sean, because the territoryñ÷ they've conquered because hillary clinton and barack obama's, and leaving territory, it is that from which they draw legitimacy. credibility. we have to deny them that territory. it's important to stand with our
allies in that region. that is why, when iran continues to get away with bad behavior, one of our allies think about us? it is why we cannot stand by while russia aligns itself with iran. russia isn't on our side. they're on their side. >> you have been one of the strongest voices in terms of criticism against hillary. i wanted to ask you, because i think it's part of the 5"tq áájátklñc$kñ w engaged on a war on women and he had their resumes in binders but now, hillary is trying to play the victim a little bit, and the gender card, do yo#+$jz it is fair game to bring up the issues involving allegations of assaults made against her husband? is that fair game? >> well, sure it's fair game, look. everything bill clinton is done.
i just don't think that is the most effective way to deal with hillary clinton. look. if my husband were doing that, i would have left him. hillary clinton has. >> do you think she assisted in the smearing and slandering? >> well, sure she did. of course she did. effective way to beat hillary clinton is remind voters of hillary clinton's behavior. >> well, two important debates coming up. where do you see your place in this heading into iowa in 2015? where do you see it? what is your strategy? >> well, i don't think i need to make recovery. i think i need to make progress. remember, sean, i started 17th out of 16. less than 3% of voters ever heard from me.
now i am tied with two governors who are household names in politics, who spent millions of dollars each on television. i haven't spent any money on tv. i know what i see on the ground. you know? iowa, new hampshire, i have packed town halls and the truth is that most people in iowa and new hampshire makeup their minds in the last two weeks so this race is wide open. and i have come further, faster than anyone predicted because voters listen and they like what they hear. when i tell them it's time to take our country back, and professional politician isn't going to be able to do it, and a guy who is a celebrity with no plan isn't going to do it, either, they're listening. >> carly fiorina, six days, thanks for being with us.

welcome back to "hannity". so what do you think about the president trampling on your second amendment rights? we want to hear what you have to say. and it's time for our ask sean segment. >> hi, hannity. my question is why does it seem like obama never runs out of steam when it comes to executive orders, does he have no respect for our constitution? >> that is a great question. and i appreciate you sending it in. here is the bottom line. congress is allowing this to happen. we have equal branchs of government. and we also this their own
powers. this president bypasses congress, congress should not let him get away with it. they have the power of the purse. and i would like to see them use that power, great question. that is all the time we have left this evening. we'll see you back here tomorrow night. the o'reilly factor is on, tonight: >> well, i can tell you what i am. i am a progressive democrat. >> but that's not what mrs. clinton said last september. she said she was a moderate democrat. the point is americans really don't know what hillary clinton will do if elected. tonight, we'll have a special report. >> now, putin comes out, he says trump is brilliant. i don't reject that. >> should donald trump be tougher on putin a major human rights violater? we will take a look at that ♪ >> also ahead, some big named american entertainers taking big money from human rights violators. we will name the names.
