"hannity" starts right now. >> welcome to "hannity." tonight president-elect trump continues his thank you tour. we will have highlights for you, coming up later in the show. first, sore loser democrats continue to push the idea that russia helped president-elect trump win the election. that's tonight's opening monologue. ♪ all right. so liberals, theyprattly keep playing up a narrative that russia has hacked and helped donald trump with his electoral victory over hillary clinton despite, of course, conflicting views on the issue of intelligence from the cia and the fbi. now, the left wing is running wild with reports that say that the cia without any concrete or new evidence, none, they had it all before the election, they think now that russian hackers influenced the election all in favor of donald trump. that's their conspiracy. now democrats and the abusively biassed alt-left mainstream media are pushing the cia's
assessment as an undeniable fact. but, of course, you need to know the truth. it is not. now the fbi has reached a much different conclusion than the cia because they have not found conclusive evidence that russia was trying to assist donald trump in any way. now, reuters is reporting american's top spy agency, the office of the director of national intelligence, is not embracing the cia's conclusions either. why? there's a lack of evidence. now, instead of accepting the facts on all of this and telling you, the american people, the truth, the left led by president obama continue to repeat falsehoods. why? what's their motive here? to delegitimize president-elect trump. as for president obama, now he has done a major flip-flop on potential of the election in america being rigged or interfered w you may remember back in october, well, in is president obama mocking donald trump for raising concerns about fairness in an election. watch this. the larger point that i want
to emphasize here is that there is no serious person out there who would suggest somehow that you could even -- you could even rig america's elections. and so i would invite mr. trump to start it whooining and try t make his case. >> who is whining now in only after donald trump won, now president obama is saying, yes, outside forces could have influenced the election. take a look at the hypocrisy from the president. this was on "the daily show" last night. take a look. >> russia trying to influence our election dates back to the soviet union. what they did here, hacking some e-mails and releasing them is not a particularly fancy brand off of espionage or propaganda.
we were, frankly, more concerned in the run-up to the election to the possibilities of vote tampering, which we did not see evidence of and were confident that we could guard against. >> remember last week opening monologue i said they are not your friends? obama is not donald trump's friend. now, in the same interview president obama took the russian hacking idea even further by alleging that president-elect trump has direct ties to russia. let's take a look. you had what was very clear relationships between members of the president-elect's campaign team and russians, and a professedw on a bunch of issues. >> now, when it comes to working with the russians, well, president obama clearly has a pretty short memory.
now, you may remember when he was caught on a hot mike saying this to the prime minister, dmitri medvedev in 2012. >> after the election i'll have more -- >> permission to -- >> as long as we're talking about issue of interfering in elections, well, the obama administration, they know a lot about that, too. remember a congressional investigation, they found that back in 2014 an israeli political group used a $300,000 obama state department grant. why? to create a political apparatus to try and defeat the israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu. while president obama pretends to be morally outraged about russian hacking and influence, he has done nothing about cyber security the entire years he's
been president, despite massive attacks in that time frame. since 2012, hackers attacked nasa, the department of energy, the fec, commission networks, the u.s. postal service, the national oceanic and atmospheric administration, the white house, the state department, the department of defense. the whole election cycle what about hillary clinton e-mails, wikileaks. where was the hacking outrage before she lost? on this show we've been warning something needs to be done, which is why i have been saying often and criticized often for saying we need to learn from julian assange and wikileaks and actually try and fix the problem. remember, he hacked into nasa and the department of defense when he was only 16 years old. well, that's not going to happen any time before january 20th because here's the simple truth that you've got to remember. the president doesn't care about hacking. all he cares about after eight years of doing nothing is to undermine and delegitimize donald trump's presidency. here now with reaction, editor
in chief of lifezette, fox news contributor laura ingraham. if they cared about hacking, we've known it has been going on. they don't care about hacking. this is about politics. do you agree or disagree? >> totally agree. if hillary won the election we would never hear anything about it again. they would move on to the other cause of the moment or the day. remember, sean, when we learned that the chinese had hacked into 50 million u.s. personnel files, including mine. i know that because i got a notice from the u.s. government saying that they would give me, i think, a year of some type of identity theft protection service because they had -- they had my background check. >> if i was a sponsor, i would want yours, too. >> they had a copy of my background check for when i was a white house employee or supreme court clerk or one of those two. so i don't remember president obama ever taking china to task. they have 50 million files of
social security numbers, home addresses, all of our siblings, all of where -- all of the places where we ever lived, of 50 million government employees. that's china. now, last time i checked they are one of our geo political adversaries as well. you are exactly right, right on the money on this. this is all about sour grapes and trying to delegitimize the trump vick toerks atory, and al try to subtract from any mandate that he believes rightly that he has to reform the government. they never changed their ideas about policies, sean, they just moved their lines of attack which is what they're doing right now. >> it is funny because obama went on "60 minutes" and sort of exonerated hillary clinton over the e-mail scandal. it is no big deal. of course, we later learned a 99% certainty that five foreign intelligence agencies were able to get top secret information, special access program information. so he was wrong there, nor did he seem to care. so i've got the believe that all
of this is politics. here is my next question. first they tried the recount, it didn't work out too well for them. now they're trying the hacking. but behind the scenes it seems that obama and clinton surrogates have their fingerprints all over this electoral college effort to try and get them to switch their votes. do you take that as real? we're six days away from electoral college voting. >> i think we won't know until the vote is actually cast. i think the push to get all of the trump electors to watch the -- or to get some type of intelligence briefing, i mean that's really rich. i mean why shouldn't the clinton electors get a briefing as to all of the things he described in your monologue, the breaches into her system, the lack of transparency right off the bat, all of her prevar indication and misrepresentation to put it kindly. they should get that briefing. if the trump people are going to get another type of briefing, let's make it fair.
is it going to change the outcome? i doubt it. a lot of this, sean, is about feeding the beast of these activist groups that are antsy and angry on the left. they feel like they put it all on the line for hillary clinton, even though a lot of them liked sanders better. they were suspicious of mrs. clinton for her ties to the establishment, but a lot of them bit the dust for her anyway, and now they're mad and they need something to believe in. they need something to hold on to. so i think this is much about getting e-mail addresses and raising money for the next electoral push as it is about anything else. >> let me ask you this, because every bit of information that we're hearing we all knew before the election. there's nothing new here. now, the director of national intelligence clapper, the fbi director and the fbi itself, they've come to very different conclusions about this. there's nothing new here. so then that raises questions, why is the media and why is hillary clinton who warned that donald trump can't do this, this
has never happened, you can't challenge an election like this, that's not how our system works, how does she justify being a part of all of these efforts? >> i think it is kind of rich for hillary clinton to tell us that's not how the system worked when that's the entire way she ran the state department, whether it was the influence peddling we knew was happening, the use of consultants who were also on the government payroll, who were working for the taneo corporation, all of that shouldn't have been done. whether donald trump decides not to pursue an investigation into the clinton foundation or not, we know -- >> that's not his call, is it? wouldn't it be the attorney general and justice department call? >> well, think ultimately it would be. but, you know, obviously whatever signal trump gives probably will have some influence. i agree, if you're going to run based on the rule of law applying across the board to all people regardless of what their last name is or where they came from, and if there was real criminality here or potential for real criminality, probable cause to believe there's
criminality, then i mean i think you have to take it seriously. >> let me ask you a question. the cia we know for example the obama administration has a history for manipulating intelligence for gain, but also didn't the cia write or rewrite the talking points as it all related to benghazi, for having never spoken to anybody that was there on the ground? they manufactured it in langley? by the way, i'm not criticizing our intelligence agency, but there are some political agents there that would have us believe this was a spontaneous attack where people had rpgs and mortars in their back pocket and spontaneously pulled them out and attacked the embassy, which never happened. >> i think there's a lot of reasons to believe going back to the i rairaq war there was politicized intelligence put out to the american people. there's noble efforts on the part of our intelligence agencies and so good men and
women putting their lives on the line, we don't want to cast aspersions on them. the idea it is all sacrosanct because some anonymous source leaks it out of the cia, i think it is ridiculous. >> state right there. we have to take a break. more with laura after the break. coming up, president-elect trump holds another thank you to a rally tonight in the state of wisconsin. we will place the hi lights. plus he made it official, donald trump announced this morning he is selecting exxon mobil ceo rex tillerson to be his secretary of state. we will get reaction from somebody who knows him, lou dobbs. later tonight, the reverend darrell scott and nfl legend jim brown who met with president-elect trump at trump tower and spoke about issues impacting the black community. they'll join us in studio later tonight straight ahead. ♪

president-elect donald trump continues reaching out to his supporters on his thank you tour. here are some of the highlights. >> thank you, everybody. so when i started 18 months ago, i told my first crowd in wisconsin that we're going to come back here some day and we are going to say merry christmas again. merry christmas. so merry christmas, everyone. happy new year, but merry christmas. speaker paul ryan, where is the speaker? where is he? he has been -- i'll tell you, he has been terrific. you know, honestly, he's like a fine wine. every day goes by i get to appreciate his genius more and more. now, if he ever goes against me i'm not going to say that, okay? he's a great guy and we have
some amazing things in store, and we're going to work on taxes, we're going to work on obamacare, we're going to work on things, and he's going to lead the way. so thank you. but we're going to work on the wall, paul. you think we're playing games. somebody said the other day, well, now that trump won, he's really not going to build the wall. i said what are you -- we're going to build the wall, okay? believe me, we're going to build the wall. we have to. got to stop the drugs from coming in and the wall is going to be a big, big factor. today i announced my plans to nominate rex tillerson, right? the chief executive officer and chairman of exxon mobil, to be the next secretary of state. rex is one of the greatest and most skilled global business leaders of our time.
made some of the greatest deals ever made in the oil industry or any industry. a great diplomat, a strong man, a tough man, a man who's already earned an avalanche of endorsements and growing praise from our nation's top leaders. >> and we continue with laura ingraham with more on this. i love the idea, if you ask people to do something and they do it, i love the idea of saying thank you, but more importantly i firmly believe that what we see happening now is only the start. i do believe everything will be done to politically destroy him by the left. it is only -- this is nothing compared to what is coming in my opinion. and for him to bypass the media, go directly to people and make this a signature of his presidency i think would be very wise for him to continue. >> yeah, i mean he's his own press secretary. i mean he's doing in such a -- i think a really smart, this is a brilliant strategy, going right
to the people and going around the stereotype that the left has tried to paint him with now for over a year and a half, which is, oh, he's just a billionaire, he is just saying these things, he doesn't mean them, he's just all about celebrity. no, he's with the people. what he's reminding folks of is how politics and identity politics, sean, what you've talked about for years, the politically correct nonsense that has invaded our university settings, that is stultifying to free speech, he wants to wipe it away and do things that make the lives of every day americans, people that we grew up with, like we grew up, their lives better. >> and that's -- >> and that will drive the left crazy, sean, because he goes into their territory and he tells people who are normally democrats, it doesn't have to be this way. just try it with us for a while. see what we do for your life to make it better, and we want you to be part of this great new american experiment. >> i'm beginning to see the
opposition build among the republicans. >> oh, yeah. >> like they seem to side, mcconnell and ryan, with the cia over the issue, not the fbi, not the director of intelligence. that's troublesome because it is almost like they still want to be liked by the establishment, but they are in many ways the establishment. will that be a problem dealing with mcconnell, dealing with ryan? will they pass the more controversial aspects of the promises that he ran on? >> i think you're exactly right to raise this issue early on. donald trump has a very short window to get a lot done, and i think not only with the establishment entrenched interest on the left be at his throat, i think they will work with him, but on issues of trade, keep your eye on who the pick is for the u.s. trade representative. that's the individual who will actually litigate cases for us and run the strategy in the
international tribunals and negotiate trade deals. we haven't named that pick yet, we haven't seen that pick yet. that's going to be very important. dan damiko who is a fabulous manufacturing ceo, bob lightheiser, former deputy in the reagan administration who is incredibly brilliant. those are smart picks and there are other people out there who raised some eye brows among us who believe we should have more of an economic populist approach, which is trump's approach. so that's important. but i think ryan and mcconnell will be pushing the more globalist agenda on that office. >> laura, great to see you. when we come back, president-elect trump picks exxon mobil ceo rex tillerson to be his secretary of state. lou dobbs joins us with the inside track. they will be in studio. also tonight "fox & friends"

growwwlph. it's what you do. oh that is good crispy duck. ♪ welcome back to "hannity." so after weeks of rumors, reports, speculation, president-elect donald trump has made a decision on secretary of state by officially nominating exxon mobil chairman ceo rex tillerson to be american's next top diplomat. the president-elect took to twitter writing, quote, i have chosen one of the truly great business leaders of the world, rex tillerson, chairman, ceo of exxon mobil to be secretary of state. somebody who knows everybody in business so well, from the fox business network, our good frund lou dobbs. >> good to be with you, sean. >> happy new year. >> merry christmas. >> what can you tell us about him? the only comment negative i saw was from tony perkins about social issues. >> right. >> and he's not going to be involved in social issues. >> that's not his responsibility.
and a lot of people have some negatives. they talk about the fact he supported tpp, the president is saying he's against. you can go through a list of things where they're in variance, but you said the important thing. he is to be the secretary of state. he's not responsible for social issues. he's not going to have a box of wedge issues that he's going to retreat to. i think -- and i don't know this, but i assume the president-elect chose him because he has handled massive deals, he works with governments, other large corporations, and donald trump said it absolutely correctly. he is a world class businessman who has carried can off -- you know, i mean he has carried off some deals that are incredible, working with russia, working anywhere in the world. >> well, apparently working successfully with russia, negotiating deals with them in the minds of people in washington is a negative, but it is exxon mobil's responsibility to make a profit. >> right. >> and to bring their products and services to market and he did a great job, good job?
>> a great job. furthermore, the secretary of state's job, no matter what john kerry may pretend, the secretary of state's job is to lead our diplomatic efforts. leave it to the defense department if we want to go to war with someone. leave it to the president, the commander in chief, he will make those decisions. the secretary of state, it should never be that he or she in that position would want to have positive, affirmative relations with other nations, that should be their -- that should be their goal. >> explain how big, for people that don't follow business as closely as you do, people like me to be perfectly frank, his economy or his business, the amount of money that he would handle is bigger than a great percentage of -- >> of world countries, sure. >> -- of world countries, yes. >> and the company itself is massive, and it works on plans that reach out ten years in terms of development. by the way, rex tillerson came
up through the development side of the business before -- before merging with mobil. this is a guy who has expertise that the president says -- and let's say that it was negligible, he is the president-elect's choice and that should be enough for most people. >> from the economic side, if donald trump is able to repatriate the trillions from multi-national corporations at 10%, if he drops seven brackets the three in terms of tax brackets, if he gets a 15% corporate tax rate, if he eliminates obamacare, i think that may end up being like a tax refund for americans because they'll have cheaper healthcare costs, and if he adds the component of energy independence which it seems he wants to because we have more energy than all of the middle east combined when you add natural gas and shale. >> you want to go for the whole mount rushmore port foel yeah?
>> yes. >> and he secures the border and ports, and nationalizes our immigration system and makes it clear that the country will not get involved -- >> you reported on the economy all of the decades you have been in the media and somebody i watched for years. is this the formula to get us at what percent gdp growth, obama being the only president in history that never had one percent at 3% gdp? >> as quickly as he can move to rationalizing the so-called trade agreements, we had 40 years of -- >> you're a free trader? >> absolutely a free tader. >> fair trader. >> i want to be fair. i want the same trade policy as, say, europe or china. you know, they have free trade as a goal too except for one thing. they make certain they're getting trade surpluses, not trade deficits. the world has been living off our deficits for a long time. >> if an american car company
wants to sell a car in china, what do we pay? >> good luck. it is not going to happen. >> why? >> there are huge barriers, there are cultural barriers, there are social barriers, and ultimately there are tariffs. >> exactly. >> there are tariffs. don't tell anybody. >> lou dobbs, don't miss him every night 7:00 p.m. on the fox business network. thanks, lou. >> great to be here. >> up next tonight on "hannity." >> we have by no means overcome the legacies of slavery and jim crow can and colonialism and racism. >> there's obama saying america has not overcome the legacy of slavery and jim crow. next we will speak with reverend darrell scott. nfl legend jim brown met with president-elect trump. president-elect trump says he would like his daughter ivanka to join him in washington. what role might she have? we'll check in with "fox & friends" co-host ainsley

having a good time, but we also spent a lot of time talking about the black community. one of the things i suggest, and i know donald trump has talked about it because i've talked to him about it and i know you have, if we're taking in repatriated money from multi-national companies at 10%, why not lower to 5% or 6% and tell the companies to invest in your city of cleveland, in milwaukee, detroit and philadelphia? if you add to that education sent back to the communities and choice and competition for those dollars, because top down education isn't working, and inner city schools have been impacted negatively the worst, wouldn't that help go a long way to showing that government can help the black community? >> absolutely. i mean we felt disconnected by the government. we felt disconnected by whatever presidential administration, it seems like we are people of a forgotten race. >> every four years they come calling for votes. >> right. and right now, you know, especially during this last
election, we presented a picture of oppression that, you know, we even referred to whites as the oppressor. that puts a mentality that needs to be dealt with before we can make some positive change. >> what do you think when obama says that america by no means has overcome the legacies of slavery, jim crow, colonialism, racism, and that those who favor welfare cuts are racist? what is he talking about? >> well -- >> this country elected him in massive numbers. >> yeah, once again that speaks to the mindset. i mean welfare should never be a goal. welfare was meant to be assistance until you were able to make a positive change in your life. it was never supposed to be a lifestyle. we should never have second, third, fourth, fifth welfare generations in america of any nationality. >> jim brown, if donald trump follows up and brings economic development specifically into inner city america that needs it the most, if he gives parents
whose kids have been suffered in inferior schools the choice to send them to more competitive schools, would that go a long way to getting away from this -- i guess the 90% of black america that always votes democrat? >> that's very tricky. >> it is not a tricky question. it is an easy question. >> well, i'll tell you, naturally -- well, let me put it this way. the president-elect has already said that he's in. we made a presentation to him about economic development in the black community, about families, about the state of our black communities in this country, and he realizes that with the education and the attack on the violence that takes place, that we can then get on the right track with economic development. >> did you walk out of the
meeting confident he is going to follow up today? >> absolutely. he's not a phoney. >> he's not? >> he's not a phoney. so he agreed that we can work together, so we're going to bring him something, and through this young gentleman, the pastor here, we've been able to come and be on your show a unified threesome. >> if you look at polls along racial lines, america has never been more divided. obama leaves after eight years saying we haven't overcome slavery, jim crow, colonialism, racism, and if you want a welfare cut you're racist. really? every four years as a conservative i resent the democratic party playing the race card. i look at a president that saw during his presidency 4,000 dead people in his home city, 3,000 shot this year, and he didn't lift a finger, pastor, not a finger. >> one of the reasons we had our
meeting with president-elect today is, you know, jim brown has a program that's been very effective over the years that can address the issue. now, mr. trump made promises to the african-american community. what do you have to lose? give me a chance. rather than we sit down with intelligencia and try to rely on statistics to address the problems with the african-american community, jim brown already has a model, he already has a vehicle that's very, very effective in 99% of that which we need to address. so my thing is let's get it to the table, let's get this administration, get the country behind it, put some gas in the vehicle and we can ride this thing to the promised land? >> so if we go energy independent, if he's able to incentivize companies to build in detroit, cleveland, philly and all over the country, milwaukee, cities that need it, let's have ribbon cuttings, get people hired and fix the schools, a lot of your problems
go away, do you agree? >> absolutely. here is the deal. you are talking about it which is your job, we have to go out and implement it. >> i'm not just talking. >> then you're part of it. but this is the beginning. >> all right. >> of a different attitude, because this young man has positioned the president in a position that he will be able to utilize so many of our great athletes and our great entertainer. >> to help. >> that's right, to help. >> but the best part is he's talking to you now after he won. >> of course. >> right? >> yes. >> and that to me is a good sign. >> you know what -- >> by the way, you still want me to preach in your pulpit? >> january 15th. >> he's preaching right now. >> what do you mean i'm preaching right now. >> you have your own idea about it, which is good. >> here is what i believe. i believe every child is a child of god. this is my message. education means to bring forth from within, and we have destroyed so much talent of
young people because we have not fed and given them the water and the light that they need to grow into what they could be, what god created them to be. >> why do you think we are sitting here? >> yeah, i know. to help? >> yes. >> that's why i invited you. >> thank you. >> i've got to break. january 15th, up next, tonight on "hannity." >> if you look at ivanka, you take a look and she is so strong as you know into the women's issue and child care and so many things she would be so good. nobody can do better than her. >> president-elect trump, he says he wants his daughter ivanka to be involved in the administration.

♪ welcome back to "hannity." so during his interview on fox news sunday, president-elect trump spoke about his daughter ivanka and his son-in-law jared kushner moving to washington with him, and if they'd have roles in his administration. let's watch this. >> i would love to be able to have them involved. if i look at ivanka, you take a look and she's so strong, as you know, into the women's issue and child care, and so many things she would be so good. nobody could do better than her. i just have to see whether or not we can do that, and she would like to do that, and i would love to have jerod helping with deals on other nations and see if we can do peace in the middle east and other things. >> "fox & friends" co-host ainsley earhardt. she interviewed ivanka several times during the campaign, including about ivanka's interest in child care. let's take a look. >> we need to create a more robust marketplace for child care solutions. so, you know, the
one-size-fits-all institutional model of child care doesn't work for everyone. if you live in crucial communities, you won't have access to that type of child cares. reducing regulations to create a more dynamic marketplace will bring down the cost of child care. >> joining us now, author of the number one new york sometimes best seller ""take heart, my child," a mother's dream," fox business network and co-host ainsley earhardt. congrats, the book is killing it. >> i've had so much fun, getting a taste of what you've done all of these years. >> a little bit. that's in my past. >> everyone asks about you, they love you. >> thank you. >> you're welcome. >> i spent time with ivanka, but you have spent more time. have you gotten to know her. i watched you interview her one time in particular where i interviewed her and you interviewed her, and you guys get along well. >> i like her a lot. she is very put together, she is very smart. she has an amazic business. she is a mother of three children and she is extremely, extremely successful. they were raised in a billion
dollar environment and they are hard workers and they didn't -- they say this, they didn't go out playing football in the backyard with their dad. they went out to construction sites, meeting the individuals. she said when her dad keeps her children, that they'll walk down the streets and donald trump will say, that's a pothole, that needs to be fixed to the daughter. >> right. >> so ivanka says sometimes she is walking down the streets of new york with her older daughter and her daughter will say, mommy, grandfather would not like that, there's a crack in the road. >> which is pretty funny. >> isn't that cute. >> what role might she take? >> i talked to three different sources within the campaign. they're saying they're waiting to untangle all of this. they say it is a sign of his excellent leadership skills that he doesn't want to rush into something, doesn't want to do it too quickly until it is figured out. they have a lot of attorneys involved. they are all meeting with attorneys tomorrow and in the days to come. they're trying to figure out the best way to do this because there are so many different laws that prevent maybe the kids from working with him or -- and
working with the business, and the nepotism laws and all of that. so they're trying to figure it all out. they're going to do the right thing, it is just going to take little more time. >> on the business side he is going to hand everything over to john jr. and eric. >> correct. >> but they're not going to reach out or expand the business. >> just maintain it. >> it was unfair to ivanka. remember she was on "60 minutes" and she happened to have on a bracelet. somebody at her company tweeted out, oh, that's the bracelet she was wearing on "60 minutes." i'm like, really? >> it didn't hurt them. >> taking a cheap shot. well, it seemed like the media, they're just looking for any little thing to hurt her and the family. >> women, i have always encouraged other women to champion women. i mean, you know, she is doing so well. her business is amazing. her price points are really good. i mean, sean, i like shoes, i like to shop, her price points are pretty good. >> i have three paris of shoes. >> i know, with holes in the bottom, right? >> probably. you see maybe she will take that role?
>> i think she will take a role. she is close to her dad. we saw what she did with the hotel down there. the staff said she has really young kids so it is easy -- of course we know that, but it is easier for her to move down there because the kids are little and not enroll in school like barron is. they're younger age so it is easier for them. they said that donald trump is in meetings for 10 to 15 hours a day trying to figure out his cabinet. that's why he doesn't have as much time to focus on this right now. that's why they're tabling until january. >> congrats, "take heart, my child," number one best seller. >> thank you for promoting that. great christmas gifts. >> great story behind it. >> thank you, sean. >> good to see you. >> thank you. >> coming up, we need your help. an important question of the day straight ahead. ♪ complicated cash back cards? some cards limit where you earn bonus cash back to places they choose... then they change those places every few months. quicksilver keeps it simple. with quicksilver you always earn unlimited
