our friends at "the five" are back at their original spot. "the story" hosted by martha maccallum will be atanant forget to watch my show! i forgot to plug it. watch it, it's great. ♪ >> welcome to this special edition of "hannity," the the i am jeanine pirro. a speaking engagement just wrapped up at the rally for luther strange in huntsville, alabama. president trump explained why he is supporting strange in the primary run on tuesday. president trump touched on a number of big issues including putting america first. take a look. >> i will always defend america's interests above all else. i'm here for you. i am not here for global
interest. we are not here for the rest of the globe. we want to trade the rest of the globe are right. when i say america first, everyone is saying i never liked it from the standpoint that if you are in another country, you want your country to be first so nobody really understood for years -- america first although i'm the one that really means it. there's a big difference. >> jeanine: president trump also explained how the border wall is coming and soon. here's what he said about that. >> the wall is happening, folks, believe me. you need to have a great wall but it has to be see-through. we are now looking at samples, we have four samples that have already been built, they've been built and we are looking at different samples already. we are going to as much wall -- you have 2,000 miles. we don't need it. we have a lot of natural barriers. what are you going to do? you're going to build the wall in the middle of the river?
so no one can go in? are you going to build the wall on the mountain? we're going to build a wall. it's coming along great. >> jeanine: another topic the president focused on tonight was the g.o.p. failing to repeal obamacare. >> with obamacare -- i've been listening for seven years as many of these people -- richard kept voting against it but many of these people kept saying repeal and replace, repeal and replace. they did not care. nobody cared. they had a person that wasn't going to sign it and it didn't matter. it did not take much courage. they were getting all these great votes. i think it was voted 61 times. 61 times the repeal and replace! they finally get a president who won't sign the legislation and they don't have the guts to vote for it. okay? they don't have the guts to vote for it.
>> jeanine: the president also spoke about how he wants to get tax reform done immediately. >> we are moving quickly to pass a massive tax cut and simplification for the miller class. we want new tax returns, we want simplification. we want reform and do you know what we really want? massive tax cuts for business, that's what we are doing for the middle class. if we want to restore american prosperity, we need tax reform that is progrowth, pro-jobs, pro-worker, profamily, and pro-america. >> jeanine: and north korea's dictator kim jong un got a warning from the president. >> we can't have mad men out there shooting rockets all over the place. rocket man should have been handled a long time ago.
it should have been handled a long time ago by clinton. i won't mention the republicans. by obama. why is this -- this is a different time. this should have been handled eight years ago and four years ago. honestly, and 15 years ago. and 20 years ago. in 25 years ago. this shouldn't be handled now but i'm going to handle it. little rocket man -- we are going to do it. because we really have no choice. he may be smart, he may be strategic and he may be totally crazy but you know him what? no matter what he is, we are going to handle it, folks. >> jeanine: joining us with reaction on the president's remarks, nationally syndicated radio host larry elder. america first action spokesman, former walkie county sheriff and
american conservative union matt schlapp. good evening, gentlemen. matt, i will go to you first. why get involved in a primary election? >> judge, i was the political director for president bush and you should be very careful about going into the primaries. what's interesting in alabama is most of the people you would considered the trump voters are aligned with judge moore but you have donald trump coming in endorsing luther strange who has been a very reliable vote for the the trump agenda. i tell you, tuesday, i cannot predict with is going to happen. >> jeanine: david clark, to the president make a good argument for voting for luther over at judge roy moore? >> i think he will win either way. >> jeanine: wait a minute, you think luther strange is going to win? he's the underdog right now.
>> no, i'm not calling -- i'm not calling out who's going to win, the president will win either way. whoever wins on tuesday. i think there will be a reliable trump agenda supporter. the politics of the primaries can get a little sticky and uncomfortable at times. the president is going to come out a winner either way, no matter who wins. >> jeanine: does the president make a good argument, david, first supporting or having people vote for luther strange over roy moore? >> sure, he did. basically what i heard was him blasting the g.o.p. as a body. congress as a body is dysfunctional. trying to get them to work on anything together is like trying to herd cats. what he's trying to do really is mobilize and energize the people, the public, all across america to put the pressure on the g.o.p., to get his agenda past and right now, it seems to be stuck in neutral because of
the dysfunctional congress. the g.o.p. is in charge and it falls in their lap. >> jeanine: larry, what to think about this? the president getting involved in this primary race? when you think about it, he's got a lot on the line. if luther wins, it's good for him. he came in to save the underdog. he goes back to the legislature -- a strong person. if luther does not win, he goes back looking to get both health care and tax reform, looking weak. >> i was surprised he got involved in this race too. huntsville, alabama, as my mom's hometown. i was pleased to see him. i was surprised got involved in this race. if he doesn't win, he loses prestige. people will think it's okay to defy trump. if you pulls this out and luther strange is the underdog -- it suggests that the president has a lot more clout than people think. look, his poll numbers are up. he comes office united nations
speech, he has not back down from all of his promises. this gave him an extraordinary opportunity to restate his presidency and to talk about what he wants to do in the future. this is not a guy who's afraid of getting impeached, i will tell you that. >> jeanine: when we talk about him as an establishment can demonic candidate, mitch mcconnell's pac gave him $9 million. >> yeah, this is becoming an increasing problem because it's one of the reasons why luther strange has struggled so badly. judge, it will come as no surprise to you that if you are a candidate in america and you are tied to g.o.p. washington establishment? it's not a positive. i'm surprised that that pac spent that money directly in the race. it's one of the impacts. i think luther strange is having trouble making the case that he's his own man. something that judge moore has demonstrated throughout his career. the one thing i give to the president, judge, he is rewarding his friend. luther strange has been a
reliable vote for him. he's right to take on congress. 7.5 years of talking about obamacare? watching the senators a weasel out of it? people across the country, it's pitchfork time. >> jeanine: it is. when you have the oval and senate and congress? david clarke, to not get anything done, that's a signal that the establishment is looking to get rid of donald trump. they are not looking to support him. >> [laughs] >> that's precisely what is happening right now. people that are two-faced about this. i'm talking about the g.o.p. we know where the dems stand on this thing but within the g.o.p. in public they might talk about how they are for tax reform or market-based health care systems -- infrastructure, rebuilding, law and order in those sorts of things but they are really not inside. they are really not pushing. that's what the president needs. he needs people to help push this agenda through to congress. he's just not providing the heavy lifting that they need to do. >> jeanine: larry elder, i
want to move on a little bit about the speech. what'd you think of the new title "little rocket man?" [laughs] >> kim jong un has been demoted. he used to be rocket man and now he is little rocket man. other national leaders have referred to him as rocket man, donald trump says it and all of a sudden, donald trump is a warmonger. there was a cover story in the economist, a british newspaper -- in 2006. with kim jong un on it, calling him rocket man. nobody said anything. donald trump says it and now all of a sudden he's responsible and a warmonger. double standard. it just set donald trump derangement syndrome we've been talking about ever since he became president. >> jeanine: he can't do anything right but i will tell you what, matt, he gave an incredibly strong speech at the u.n. letting everyone know if you know what? it's okay if you want to support your country, i'm going to support mine. not to the detriment of yours unless you're coming out to hurt me.
i thought this speech was phenomenal. >> what's great about it for donald trump, he so good i communicating but he actually gave us a philosophical understanding of what it means to stand up for a sovereign country. he also talked about communism and socialism, it continues to fail around the globe. when he takes on cuba and north korea and iran, i will stand up and cheer every time. >> jeanine: cuba, north korea, iran -- venezuela as well, saying it was not a problem. i don't have the quote exactly right but it wasn't a problem with socialism or the implementation, it's just a problem with socialism. >> as a matter of fact, when he said words to the effect that it was implemented properly, socialism -- that's the problem. a fantastic speech. every time he gets on the word stage like that, he did it when he was a warsaw. i've had people say that's one of the best speech as they ever
heard because he is a great communicator. i was real pleased to see him stand up at the u.n. and proudly talk about what america has accomplished, what america is about. we are here to work with people that want to work with us. it's a two-way street. i tell you what, over time he gets on the world stage, the leadership that this guy exhibits and i say that affectionately, the president of the united states -- it's astounding. now we have america that's going to be front and center in terms of working with the world. again, america comes first. i like that. >> jeanine: larry elder, finally. in terms of tax reform, health care, what he think is going to happen this week? >> as you heard, trump has not given up. i heard him imply pressure on the senator from alaska who voted against the last repeal and replacement bill who has not decided yet. >> jeanine: murkowski. >> he has not given up. by the way, judge, the time
matched the background -- the white and red stripes in the background. it was not a coincidence? i don't think so. i think the mom planned it. >> jeanine: the president is brilliant. a show man. he gets that, on so many levels. it will be very interesting to see what happens in the next week or two. big impact, on 2018. anyway, thank you, gentlemen, for being with us tonight. coming up, former u.s. ambassador to the u.n. john bolton it's here to talk about the latest example of north korea aggression. that and more as a special "hannity": the trump agenda, continues.

this comes after the rogue dictator called president trump deranged and threatened to test a hydrogen bomb in the pacific. joining us with the reaction, former u.s. ambassador to the united nations, fox news contributor john bolton. good evening. >> good to be with you. >> jeanine: thank you. the threat of a hydrogen bomb which is far more sophisticated than the atomic bombs of past is pretty serious. i mean, does kim jong un have the capacity and capability to do that? >> we don't know but he is certainly by most expert opinions in his sixth nuclear test did detonate a nuclear weapon. maybe his fourth test is also thermal nuclear and he has the range for his ballistic missiles. the president is correct when he says one of the dangers from a thermo nuclear blast over the pacific is the radiation that would come from it.
a lot of the experts are worrying about whether there's a potential emp effect, electromagnetic pulse. it depends on where the devices detonated. would it take out satellites in orbit? could it take out electrical grids and communication systems? land areas where the detonation takes place? this is more serious than just setting off a big firecracker. it shows fundamentally why the president is properly concerned about how irrational this is. wars can start, not simply because people intend they start but from miscalculation. you see a dictatorship like this -- miscalculation should be much on our mind. >> jeanine: earlier, i read that what kim jong un did with regard to that icbm that was headed toward japan, you know, his alignments are not that
specific. it could just as easily have hit japan. the concern is if it's not that sophisticated -- the targeting -- everyone is in trouble. >> we don't really have that good an idea of how sophisticated the capabilities are. everybody has been surprised the past three have been for months at the range of some of the missiles launched. frankly, it's a thermo nuclear detonation. the sixth test. what has troubled me is in the two that have overflown japanese territory, there was no attempt to engage with missile defense systems. our response was we did not think it threatened japanese territory but as you rightly pointed out, these weapons can fail. their trajectory can go off. or north koreans might be more sophisticated and have maneuverable capabilities. i think it's very dangerous and i think the president is trying
to alert us. he certainly has tried to alert the rest of the world on tuesday that he's not going to allow this kind of dictatorship to extort the american people through the threat of the use of nuclear weapons. >> jeanine: the president yesterday signed the executive order where he would increase the treasury department's ability to sanction those doing business with north korea. the curious thing is that china came along. what brought china along where they thought the central bank cannot deal with anyone working with north korea? >> i think the president's sanctions -- although they don't use the words china and russia, that's who they are aimed at. we will see if china follows through. part of our problem for the last 25 years -- this is a 25 year long failure. that he is now inherited. china will say one thing and do
another. it will have a tremendous impact on north korea. china really supplies 90% of north korea's energy. financial lifeline to the outside world. they haven't applied pressure in the past because they are worried the regime will collapse. maybe their attitude is changing. >> jeanine: if indeed kim jong un does make a decision to try to do something, i mean, i believe the president when he says you are covered. we got your back. with our military, the sophisticated technology to prevent that kind of thing from happening if he were to try to attack with an icbm. correct? >> let's be honest, our missile defenses are not what they are after eight years of barack obama slashing the bush administration's missile defense plan. we don't have layered missile defense systems. we don't have the sort of capabilities that were envisioned where we could try to take out missiles in the boost phase and midcourse, the
terminal phase. there's no doubt that if north korea landed on guam or god for bid on the continental united states -- that we would do what the president said and destroyed north korea. colin powell used to call that turning north korea into a charcoal bearcat. it's whether we strike first to prevent that kind of tragedy from happening and that decision is still up in the air. >> jeanine: clearly is preemptive but is it preemptive based on the fact that we were about to be hit? that clearly is the issue but one more question. you mentioned the electric grid. if they were to put an emt or some kind of nuclear device in
the southern hemisphere, we are vulnerable. >> look, let's be clear. this is an act of war. the fact that it takes out electrical grids or communication systems -- it may not kill people immediately but it is still an act of war because the knock on effect could well be disruption of air traffic control systems, tragedies that happen when electricity goes out -- we simply in my view cannot tolerate leaving north korea with the nuclear weapons capability. that's exactly what the president said to the u.n. on tuesday. >> jeanine: yep. so he did. ambassador, thanks so much. coming up, doug schoen and tammy bruce will weigh in on the health care battle. that and more on this special edition this is me when i feel controlled by frequent, unpredictable abdominal pain or discomfort and diarrhea. i tried lifestyle changes and over-the-counter treatments, but my symptoms keep coming back. it turns out i have irritable bowel syndrome with diarrhea, or ibs-d. a condition that's really frustrating. that's why i talked to my doctor about viberzi... ...a different way to treat ibs-d. viberzi is a prescription medication you take every day
that helps proactively manage both abdominal pain and diarrhea at the same time. so i can stay ahead of my symptoms. viberzi can cause new or worsening abdominal pain. do not take viberzi if you have no gallbladder, have pancreas or severe liver problems, problems with alcohol abuse, long-lasting or severe constipation, or a bowel or gallbladder blockage. pancreatitis may occur and can lead to hospitalization and death. if you are taking viberzi, you should not take medicines that cause constipation. the most common side effects of viberzi include constipation, nausea, and abdominal pain. stay ahead of ibs-d with viberzi. ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪
upeace of mind.s we had a power outage for five days total. we lost a lot of food. we actually filed a claim with usaa to replace that spoiled food. and we really appreciated that we're the webber family and we are usaa members for life. afi sure had a lot on my mind. my 30-year marriage... ...my 3-month old business... plus...what if this happened again? i was given warfarin in the hospital, but wondered, was this the best treatment for me? so i made a point to talk to my doctor. he told me about eliquis. eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots and reduces the risk of them happening again. not only does eliquis treat dvt and pe blood clots. eliquis also had significantly less major bleeding than the standard treatment. eliquis had both... ...and that turned around my thinking. don't stop eliquis unless your doctor tells you to. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding.
don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. if you had a spinal injection while on eliquis call your doctor right away if you have tingling, numbness, or muscle weakness. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily... and it may take longer than usual for 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. eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots. plus had less major bleeding. both made eliquis right for me. ask your doctor if switching to eliquis is right for you. >> at your are surging. your deductibles are through the roof. alabama is a way up but we have states of 150%. we have one state, the state of alaska is up more than 200% and i'm having a hard time getting a
certain vote but she's a good person and i think she's going to come through. i mean, if you look, alaska is up over 200%. that means obamacare is no good. insurers are fleeing. doctors are quitting. choices are disappearing. congress must do its job by ending the obamacare nightmare. >> jeanine: welcome back to the special edition of "hannity": the trump agenda. that was president trump at the knights rally in alabama talking about the deal to repeal and replace obamacare. after senator john mccain said he won't vote for the graham-cassidy a proposal -- where does this leave senate republicans in their final effort to end the disastrous obamacare? joining us now, tammy bruce. and fox news contributor doug schoen. okay, so, today we find out john mccain is out. no surprise.
dragged himself out of a sick bed to come and vote no. are you surprised? >> best friend forever, lindsey graham, this is his bill. what senator mccain noted was they had gone through the right process. maybe he could have supported that if they were committee meetings and bigger discussions and other votes on other elements. he knew that that wasn't going to happen. >> jeanine: he had seven years to talk about it over tea. >> he had to have known what the dynamic with and at this point, everyone knew this would happen. him and rand paul's no vote but then it comes down to markowski and susan collins. this will also affect alabama as you've been talking about because it's a reminder of the swamp, the cone that we've been undergoing. >> jeanine: let me ask you this -- is there any chance of a democrat coming on board? >> no. but there's a chance that susan collins is going down, she's
leaning again today. she was against all the other repeal efforts. we could do a bipartisan deal. add more competition. as we did with the debt ceiling, american people are very happy with that and trump's numbers are going up. this is where it is heading. i think tammy is right. it will impact alabama but help judge avoid more and hurt luther strange. >> jeanine: as i said earlier, he got 9 million from mitch mcconnell's pack. if you would think in order to get the votes in the senate, anyone who disappoints him -- this is politics, not church. anyone who disappoints him -- he punished them and take away their committee memberships. the assignments. why isn't mitch mcconnell doing that? >> if he had done that with markowski and susan collins with the first boat and remove their power, maybe they would have done something. if he had maneuvered some of those at risk senators for this coming midterm, maybe he would
have two or three of the ten that are at risk. >> jeanine: why isn't he doing that? >> i think he wants the system to remain as it is. and the american people -- >> i think it even more elemental. he's only got 52 boats. if he loses two or three members of his caucus, he could have the most calamitous outcome possible. losing his own job. >> jeanine: you are talking about -- >> mitch mcconnell's job. >> jeanine: no brainard. let's talk about rand paul. he says he wants more of this focused on the states. this graham-cassidy is more state focused. what is with rand paul? >> he said it's more obamacare. this struck me from a conservative point of view as a perfectly reasonable piece of legislation. i can't make hide or hair or any
sense of rand paul. >> it repeals the mandate. what it does not do is it doesn't change the health care requirements that are offered. there is distilled too much of the same elements in this. of course, it does not repeal a great deal. it does get rid of mandates and that's good but it does not tell the states to set up which is of problem. i don't trust states, when you send a block grant of money that they will even use it. >> i agree with that. here's the thing -- who was in a better position to solve the problems then the people closest to it? to me, the states should handle that and by the way, medicaid, medicare, a lot of this stuff -- when i was a prosecutor, i used to prosecute these cases. if we could make the individual states responsible for resolving that, they'd all save a lot of money. >> i'm all for rid of getting rid of fraud and abuse but we have a bipartisan plan, no
single payer, introduce competition, tort reform. help make catastrophic plans available for young people. do that. do it quickly. american people will like it and it will help the president. >> donald trump was elected on large part in repealing and replacing obamacare. it has destroyed our lives, it's destroying the economy. what they don't want is for the president to allow the people that did that to do more of it. this is on the g.o.p. this is a good first step. it is not perfect but to suggest that the democrats should have a hand in more -- it's like asking the arsonist to help us put out the fire. >> jeanine: it is on the g.o.p. >> we can work together to improve and obviously flawed system. this is the art of the possible. let's do it. you are right, judge. >> jeanine: about what? >> that we need bipartisanship. >> jeanine: wait a minute, wait a minute. i believe the republicans that have the oval, house, and send
it out to get on board and do their jobs or admit that they are partisan and get them out. >> not necessarily. >> jeanine: lisa murkowski, he's talked about her. he did not mention her name. 200% up in alaska but she still a nice person. >> right. he basically said he didn't think we were going to get reform. >> jeanine: so then we go to tax reform or we call it a day? >> go to tax reform. >> the issue too is that the personal dynamic -- senator mccain. who so loathe the president that they don't want him to have a victory. the president has to come in and also start to maneuver and work with mcconnell. >> chuck schumer. >> jeanine: chuck and nancy, you never know. maybe that will get the republicans in line. anyway, tammy and doug, thank you so much. coming up, sean recently sat down with recording artists kia jones and joy villa to talk about the upcoming free-speech

>> jeanine: welcome back to the special edition of "hannity." free-speech week at berkeley is scheduled to kick off at sunday but there are reports tonight that it's canceled. the organizer as of today says the event is still on. although he is holding a press conference tomorrow. last night, "hannity" spoke with recording artists kaya jones and joy villa who were going to do attend the event but decided not to after the received death threats. take a look. >> you wanted to go out, free-speech. berkeley. what happened? >> free-speech week. right? we were asked to come out. we had threats on our life. >> yeah >> yeah. >> we we had serious threats. >> i couldn't get any security in time. we don't live there. it was tricky. they were asking us to come in early to do something for them. >> you've seemed what happened when conservatives try to speak. what was your reaction to that?
>> it's horrible. we are doing our best to try to bring the nation together. we are singing songs that are pro-america. her song make america great again, what is wrong with that? what the heart don't know and paying oma's to military families? >> both your songs are amazing. i will post them on hannity.com. it's gotta be scary. >> it's horrible and intimidation to the highest degree. we just raised $3 million for the harvey relief. we are trying to be out with milo speaking, be part of free-speech week and then being told you're going to have yourself in a riot and we want to kill you and how could you do that? who are you guys to think that you are able to have that kind of pull? we are just supposed to be singing. >> we are not strangers to death threats. we do get a lot of them because we are out for trump.
this time they made specific threats on our life. we are going to come there, find you, kill you. like kaya said, we don't have the pool to get our security together. we have small security teams on the ground but our management said this is really dangerous. >> it's gotta be disheartening for you. all right, so you are both artists. we understand most singers, most performers, most entertainers are liberal. okay, but you are conservative. by the way, that makes me like you more. both of you. the question is, americans like the fact that wow, there's some people that have their own political thoughts. >> right. >> how hard has it been a supporter's for trump? >> honestly, almost impossible. we have to force our way into some things. we have to speak up even stronger because a lot of people turn their backs. like on the red carpet, they won't take photos of us. they will promote us. i've been told you're not
welcome. >> give me an example, joy. >> fashion week was in march in los angeles. right after the grammys where i wore my make america great again dress. one person heard i was coming and i was coming at the vip to watch the designer who happen to be one of my best friends. he said no, not that trump girl. she's not allowed here. i mean, i came anyways. it was a designer but if he had control, he would have blacklisted me from fashion week. simply for speaking different. >> censorship as well. youtube is taking away views. they were censoring joy. it was due to the fact that what other reason could it be? >> has there been an upside? another group of people that appreciate the fact that there are entertainers that like the president? >> i think so, if you're going to pose your narrative and be strong in your way and finding your lane, you're going to not have everyone love you. the president knows that.
right? not everybody loves him. >> i kind of know it a little. >> redo too. that's the point, if you're going to change the world, you have to know that not everyone's going to agree with you or see eye to eye but over time, hopefully they will understand. >> we have young fans honestly. i have to stay on youtube for my 13-year-old fans were conservative, who write me every day and say i look up to you, joy. i get made fun of in school or my parents don't understand. there are so many young conservatives right now, a huge movement. having two singers they can live up to? it makes it all worth it. >> it. >> jeanine: coming up, charlie kirk and gregg jarrett are next at the ♪ if you have moderate to severe plaque psoriasis,... ...isn't it time to let the real you shine through? maybe it's time for otezla (apremilast). otezla is not an injection or a cream. it's a pill that treats plaque psoriasis differently.

>> i just come from a very productive week at the united nations general assembly. oh. [applause] >> one of the greatest honors of my life to represent the american people on that world stage. i will tell you, the world is starting to respect the united states of america again. >> jeanine: welcome back to this special edition of
"hannity": the trump agenda. that was more president trump at the tonight's rally for luther strange. earlier tonight in huntsville, alabama, joining me now with reaction's founder and executive director of turning point usa, charlie kirk and fox news legal analyst gregg jarrett. all right, guys. quick question about the president at the rally tonight. he seems to have had a very successful week, gregg, with the u.n. and done tonight in alabama. how do you think that's going to impact the election of luther strange and his legislative agenda? >> this is a deeply conservative state. alabama. incredibly popular there -- 83% approval rating among republicans. he may be able to give the momentum for luther strange to overcome the diminishing lead by judge roy moore. my problem with roy moore if he was not fit to sit on the alabama supreme court which
makes him not fit to sit in the u.s. senate. he was twice removed from office, once. for defying a federal court order, which you cannot do. no judge can do that. and then he defied the united supreme court to u.s. supreme court ruling on same-sex marriage. he seems to think he is above the supreme court. >> jeanine: i think judges are constantly going against presidents or mandates. it was interesting with roy moore is he refused to take down the statue of the ten commandments. it seems to me that that would align him with a lot of the trump followers who are not so much by the letter of the law, although they are law and order. i understand that but more on religion and god and country. charlie, what do you think it is? >> yeah, i agree with what sheriff david clarke said. no matter who wins on tuesday, president trump is going to win. alabama is a deep conservative state. his base remains incredibly strong.
look, the president has had an incredible week. i tweeted out earlier and the president responded to my tweet where i said there is a speech that the president gave at the u.n. general assembly, it was the greatest speech by a modern president in my lifetime in the last 30-40 years. if you look at the significance, not only did he call out the crazy dictatorships in the asian perimeter but he also called out marxism in venezuela, the need to defend your own country's interests on the international stage. he had a really good week and i think things are starting to look up. >> jeanine: let's talk about what's going on with free speech week at berkeley. i'm fascinated by this. and today, gregg, fired fbi director james comey was interrupted many times while he was giving a convocation address at howard university. >> thank you president
frederick. [protesters chanting] >> jeanine: what's amazing about that, gregg, it went on for several minutes. jim comey stepped back. he held his hands in front of him and said i hope you stay to listen to what i have to say. i just listened to you for 5 minutes. it turns out they did not care and there was no effort made to remove the demonstrators. they invited him to speak and they don't remove the demonstrators. >> at howard university should be deeply embarrassed about this. the faculty and the administration just sat there on the stage doing absolutely nothing about the chaos that ensued. look, college campuses are supposed to be then reduce for
the free exchange of ideas and information. you are supposed to when you are a college student listen and learn but increasingly, college students today have nothing but contempt with education. >> jeanine: charlie, not just contempt for education but contempt for anyone that they don't agree with to the point where they will disrupt -- there is no for authority, discipline, what do the colleges do about this? if they won't even have the demonstrators removed, what can be done about these colleges? >> they glorify these demonstrators. you see administrators almost lift these demonstrators up and say look at the wonderful courage it takes. a lot of the time, these are rioters. this time, they weren't but in berkeley they had to bring in the police force when ben ben shapiro came on campus. the bill was $600,000. one conservative speaker coming
for an hour. free speech isn't really so free anymore. it's quite expensive. this is exactly what the left wants to do. they want to make it nearly impossible for anyone with an idea leaning towards right on campus. >> jeanine: should they be losing some of their federal money? >> they absolutely should be. it was naive for comey to think he could appear at howard university and deliver an address that had nothing to do with race relations in the issues students care about. >> jeanine: coming up, more on the special edition on "hannity": the trump agenda, right after the after a dvt blood clot... i sure had a lot on my mind. my 30-year marriage... ...my 3-month old business... plus...what if this happened again? i was given warfarin in the hospital, but wondered, was this the best treatment for me? so i made a point to talk to my doctor. he told me about eliquis. eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots and reduces the risk of them happening again. not only does eliquis treat dvt and pe blood clots.
eliquis also had significantly less major bleeding than the standard treatment. eliquis had both... ...and that turned around my thinking. don't stop eliquis unless your doctor tells you to. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. if you had a spinal injection while on eliquis call your doctor right away if you have tingling, numbness, or muscle weakness. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily... and it may take longer than usual for 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. eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots. plus had less major bleeding. both made eliquis right for me. ask your doctor if switching to eliquis is right for you.
