10:00 pm
that's it for us tonight. sworn enemy and pointless cold wars. don't forget to dvr. sean hannity is next. have a great weekend. ♪ . tune into "hannity," next. >> sean: welcome to "hannity," >> sean: welcome to hannity, we are broadcasting for the full hour. our 43rd president will join us and along with brave members of the military featured in the book called "portraits in courage and joining us now is the cleared book, "portraits of courage." mr. president, how are you? >> good to be back w you. >> sean: i've gone through part of your museum. i am stunned, shocked, i do not know how to describe it. you've only been painting for five years. less than five.
10:01 pm
how did you pick it up? >> i was a little antsy. when you are the president, your dance card is full. all of a sudden you are not the president. i spent a lot of time here at the bush center with laura, to make a difference in people's lives. i wrote to codebooks. i'm staying fit. i mountain biking. an elliptical. i play a fair amount of golf. but it wasn't enough and so i read winston churchill's essay painting as a pastime. >> sean: you started painting pets. >> i did, i did bob the cat. i was a pet portrait painter. which is kind of hard to say. >> sean: [laughs] yeah. >> did the good thing about painting pets is they really don't react when you see there painting. >> sean: so they can't say it's good or bad. >> yeah, but the owner can. my first instructor at smu came
10:02 pm
and said you ought to paint the leaders of whom you serve. and i did. we had an exhibition here. we got putin, blair, the dalai lama. angela merkel. they were okay paintings but the most important part of it once i got to know them so well that i felt comfortable painting them. we had a personal diplomacy visit here which i think it's really important in life. and i know it's important for a president to get to know leaders from other countries. i had to go new instructors. one is a young guy, he paints really fine portraits. he said you ought to paint people nobody knows. and it just dawned on me, boom. warriors i had gotten to know. i painted all these warriors. i know their stories. i have writ and mountain bikes them.
10:03 pm
i admire them greatly. >> sean: some some 60 odd pains here. >> on the montage there are another 30 of them. about 98 warriors in the air. >> sean: how long would it take you to paint one person? i saw all the pictures of them. i know in the book you call yourself a novice, this is not the work of a novice. >> i think it is, but thank you. that is flattering. just depends until you finish. that's one of the interesting questions for any artist, one are you through? i would go upstairs and be painting my low and a look at berries painting and say i better paint him more. it was a process. even when i look at him now. i kind of wish i had my paint and touch up a few things. >> sean: you are never satisfied, perhaps?
10:04 pm
i've known you a lot of years, 9/11 happened nine months into your presidency. you were a war presidency. i look back at the last two major conflicts in america, vietnam, we lost 58,000 people. we did not finish the job. we left. i look at iraq and afghanistan and here, many of these people that you are drawing, they won muscle, iraq. baghdad. i thought it was the right decision. i still believe it was. but it not the right decision if washington politicized at that. does that frustrate you? because it frustrates me. >> yeah, if i stayed to me. and i think what people have to realize is thugs can be defeated. we did so, the president's new
10:05 pm
national security advisor with a part of that philosophy of how to win the hearts and minds of local populations which is necessary for victory. and we can win back again. you can hear both presidents after my time saying we are going to degrade and defeat isis and i say come and go get them. they can be degraded and defeated. it's very important in my mind that we do so-so that people know they can rely upon us and the people not only governments but people on the ground -- people who want to be free. you ask some of these troops, were you able to see human deprivation and improvement? and they say yes. a lot of them say to me i love the idea that girls are being able to go to school for the first time in afghanistan or young kids in iraq are no longer subjected to the thuggery of the
10:06 pm
ideological thugs. >> sean: you warned that if we pulled out precipitously, i played this on my show many times, unfortunately you were 100% accurate. >> i'm not surprised. we are in it, in terms of defeating isis or al qaeda, whoever you want to call them. they murder they in innocent that honors those who heard the call and volunteered and rebuil were willing to risk their live lives. but to advance liberty. >> sean: two things about you which people may not know, passion for the military, you used to always sneak over to walter reed, you never wanted any cameras or for people to
10:07 pm
know. you did that a lot. >> i did. >> sean: i was on the campaign with you in 2004 in jacksonville, florida. it was at a big stadium where the jaguars play. you flew air force one right over. >> a little bit of a show off. >> sean: when you got there, you got out of your car, went in a private room, other gold star families in there. and i remember because i saw it -- you came out of the room and it was obvious you had been crying. >> yeah, i am kind of a crier. when a mom hugs me and talks about her son, it affected me. on the other hand, this is hard for many people to understand but when you go to walter reed
10:08 pm
and a soldier looks at you and he has lost his leg, he says i'd do it again. or you ride mountain bikes with troops, some of whom have gone back into the combat after losing a leg. or a mother saying my son died doing what he wanted to do. it lifts your spirits. >> sean: amazing. >> it is amazing. hopefully my art is able to capture how amazing these people are. >> sean: it was that passion, it is not easy being a wartime president. you have to make tough decisions. it's because you have to put people in harm's way. >> sean: let me ask you about the art process. you start with the apple and the watermelon then you went to the pets. then landscape. then you evolved and evolved and evolved. it is less than five years and throughout this room, we will be showing these throughout the
10:09 pm
program, this is pretty sophisticated work. how many hours to work a day in the studio? >> some days more than other. including the vets, i am promoting this here. maybe three or four hours. in my man cave. [laughter] >> sean: laura said that. >> i would paint a lot. even when i was not painting, i was living with these paintings because i would hang out with bob the cat and look at the paintings. i would think about the individuals involved. i studied every one of their stories ahead of time. >> sean: they are all living. you give a story to each person you paint. were you as angry as a lot of americans were when you heard about all the corruption at the va? two sets of lists -- go >> i
10:10 pm
think that was isolated to a couple centers. i have known the va, the last va director, i know the new guy. they are committed as best they can to excellence. the truth of the matter is, what we need is public and private groups helping these bats. our focus is that they understand waiting lines, being discouraged. there was a lot of focus and there should be. but rather than being angry with the va, we are trying to help them fix it and do the best they can. but the interesting things i was told and maybe it is still the same thing, a couple years ago, the pipeline became full of pts and pti. >> sean: you don't say ptsd. >> we dropped the d, it is a symptom, not a disorder.
10:11 pm
someone with a disorder, you do want to be labeled that. it's an injury. not totally >> sean: its estima0 soldiers are impacted by pts. >> one of the great things about this show is i am confident they are watching your show so my message is it is courageous to talk about pts. you are not less of a man or a woman. talk about it. go to our web site. we will direct you to our groups with fellow vets who can help you. >> sean: we are going to take a break. coming up, we are just getting started, george w. bush with us for the a whole hour. we will meet with more heroes

10:21 pm
we did our research. someone with a very similar injury, he was a mentor to me in the hospital and then after. he amputated before i did. i went and talked to him. >> not to answer the for you qn for you. there two aspects to his recovery that are exceptional. the physical and mental. one reason i wanted to talk about john in my book is because he was self-medicating and quit. >> sean: you work? >> drinking. >> >> i haven't quit yet. >> maybe that's why you've gained weight. >> sean: i come here and get beat up.

my dad called them up and asked for "the jennifer garner card" which is such a dad thing to do. after he gave his name the woman from capital one said "mr. garner, are you related to jennifer?" kind of joking with him. and my dad was so proud to tell her, "as a matter of fact, she is my middle daughter". so now dad has the venture card, he's earning his double miles, and he made a friend at the company. can i say it? go ahead! what's in your wallet? nice job dad. >> spencer milo joined the military in 2006. in 2008, he sustained injuries in iraq that led to the discovery of a tumor in his brain. the prognosis was not good. he was given six months to live.

fortunately, that diagnosis with throne. the tumor was removed, giving spencer a new lease on life. he chose to use it to continue serving in the united states army. spencer embarked on a second combat deployment this time to afghanistan. in january 2011 he was injured again in a horrifying way. a child suicide bomber detonated 8 feet away from spencer. mountain biking was effective in its healing process. getting off prescriptions helped a lot and family was at the top of the list. when i found out that my wife was pregnant with my daughter, i remember an emotion i had, in order to take care of others, you have to take care of yourself. you gave me a new and reinvigorating motivator to get better and allow myself to heal. >> it's pretty humbling to even have a remote thought that someone like that man chose to
10:30 pm
-- personally i idolize somebody who could paint a portrait. it's pretty humbling when it is you. >> sean: president bush is still with us, joining us now is another american hero, he is featured in president bush's book, "portraits of courage." purple heart recipient, retired u.s. army staff sergeant spencer milo. he calls you milo? >> he can call me what ever he wants. >> sean: you had a pretty severe brain trauma. tell us what happened. >> i had to go separate brain injuries. my first one was in iraq and my second one was probably more prevalent, and afghanistan. there was a young teenage boy, right on the
10:31 pm
afghanistan-pakistan border. about 10 feet from me. he detonated himself. gave my entire platoon quite a memory. >> sean: how far away? >> 8-10 feet. >> sean: wow. how are you doing now? >> i'm doing a lot better. a long road, a lot of hard work. i would say i'm definitely on the right path and i am grateful for it. >> sean: you see that the president of the united states draws a portrait of you. what'd you think? >> it maybe look a lot better. i appreciate that. incredibly humbling. to think someone i chose to follow and have the utmost respect and would continue to follow anywhere would take the time out of his life to do that for me. it is humbling, surreal. a true honor.
10:32 pm
>> sean: how long did it take to get to the point where you are now, where you are know howw helping other vets? >> probably back in 2009 after iraq. it has been an adventure ever since. it will continue for the rest of my life. by helping other vets, it was a healing process often times. this is what we will find in this book. the healing process has accelerated when somebody helps somebody else. helping people find work. >> sean: you are helping them vets find a work >> yes, bush' >> sean: you said that there is a divide, the public sector, he said well maybe sniper on
10:33 pm
your resume, some companies are looking for a sniper. but they are looking for discipline, hard work. >> asked milo, he is the one helping people find work. we are trying to bridge that gap so the employer understands the vet and the vet understands the employer. >> sean: explained how that is working out. >> i work for hire usa. we transform military service, a term we tossed around in the industry is civilian civilian . if you want to go work and see a general manager at an auto place, you won't go in and say i was a sniper, they will say how can you build cars? the operation and planning, they are so meticulous with what they do. you talk to any sniper in the world, they will tell you that
10:34 pm
they will be better at math than half the people i know. and probably more so. we really talk about highlighting the skills they may not realize they have or think about on an everyday basis but they will be some of -- they are the future leaders. >> sean: you are translating military skills into everyday skills but they also have that added discipline, dedication. >> correct. >> teamwork. personal responsibility. >> loyal. the most selfless people you will ever meet. we may not know how to do something right now but if you put something in front of them, they will learn. >> sean: how well are you doing? >> we placed over 6,000 veterans in careers, not just jobs, careers. we will continue to knock it out of the park. we will continue to educate all of the employers and what they will get when they hire these men and women. we are a group of men and women
10:35 pm
who are not willing to quit. we will never quit when it comes to this. >> sean: this is now your life's vocation. your passion. this is what you love. >> i will spend the rest of my life doing everything i can to help my brothers and sisters in any way. >> sean: and this is your like passing out. i know you spent a lot of time painting but you also have golf tournaments, mountain biking. >> mountain biking, that is where i met milo. he's a great athlete. i love riding bikes with him. we are doing a w100. over three days. it is fun. >> sean: milo -- i do not know if i can call you milo -- good to me too. we will speak with yet another purple heart recipient featured in president george w. bush's new book. then he will give me a tour of his gallery where his portraits are on display. that and more as we continue

10:45 pm
how you came in the world... >> the doctors asked me if i wanted to keep my legs, the chance of me being able to walk again was pretty low according to them. it was early on, they hadn't seen very many cases like mine. the question was do you want to keep them? i said i came in with two, i want to leave with two. >> sean: you made a part of your recovery. >> it did. i got up of the wheelchair to try to walk again. i was on parallel bars and i went half the way with my arms because i was strong up top. i had no mobility down below. i am walking with my arms. the physical therapist yanked on the belt that was around me, pulled me back and said no, that is not how this works. just try to put 1 foot in front of the other. >> sean: he didn't want you

10:47 pm
longer. >> most people -- a lot of people -- look at danny and say i feel sorry for you. >> sean: and you hate that? >> i really would. >> sean: i respect your courage. the single most special quality character trait is courage. you embody it. all these other guys embody it. mr. president, i think that is what you capture in these guys. >> i think the thing we ought to focus on is how people transition. the future of our country is bright. when you think about the people like danny in this world, that is what we are all about. how can we help these men transition? >> sean: this guy is awesome. honor to meet you. i think you are supposed to be a preacher, though. if the president says you have to do something, you have to say yes. >> no he doesn't. >> sean: when we come back, president bush will take me on a tour of his gallery for his
