10:00 pm
chairs, how many chairs? some people think that algebra is terrible but it's actually worked. set your dvrs never miss an episode of "the five," "hannity" is up next.s >> sean: nevada parole board has now granted release to o.j. simpson after being convicted of armed robbery and assault with a deadly weapon. newt gingrich, ted cruz, geraldo rivera, christopher gardner, all here tonight. we are all here tonight we have a very important many a monologue about holding republicans accountable and robert mueller, mission creep and whether or not he should recuse himself., will review just how o.j. simpson ended up in prison and why many would rather see the juice rot in jail for the rest of his life.of that's tonight's opening monologue.
10:01 pm
the year was 2008, oj simpson was convicted on all charges relating to an incident that took place in las vegas where he along with a few accomplices, they entered into a hotel room they stole multiple pieces of sports memorabilia and they did it at gunpoint. h he was later sentenced to a maximum of 33 years in prison. as soon as october the first, o.j. simpson will once again be a free man. we want to remind our viewers of his violent past. in 1989, he was charged with beating his then wife nicole brown simpson, he was ordered to go on psychiatric treatment. the pair was divorced three years later, claiming that o.j. simpson was physically and emotionally abusive. then in 1994, nicole brown simpson was found brutally stabbed to death along with her friend around goldman
10:02 pm
outside of her home that she shared with her and his two children. the crime scene at the time wasc described as horrific and nicole brown simpson's head was nearlym severed from her body. hours later, when police went to o.j. simpson's house,o. investigators found that his white ford bronco was covered in blood. the dna test would later link the blood to nicole brown simpson, ron goldman, and o.j. simpson. bloody socks were also found at the foot of his bed. dna testing would link those socks to simpson and his shoe prints were found at the scene of the crime. they matched o.j. simpson's shoe size. blood containing o.j. simpson's dna markers, that was found on a back gate of the crime scene. one blood a leather glove was found near the victims, with ame matching glove found behind his guesthouse. those gloves also contained genetic markers connected to simpson and the two victims. because of the mountain of evidence against o.j. simpson,
10:03 pm
he became the main suspect in a huge double murder. he was required to surrender to police. on june 17th 1994 after failing to turn himself in, o.j. simpso and a close personal friend, they led police on a long, long, slow speed car chase in southern california where oj was a passenger in a white ford bronco, purportedly was considering suicide. ultimately he surrendered to police and was formally charged in the deaths of his ex-wife and ron goldman. he then hired high-profile lawyers to turn this trial of the century into a public circus. with all of america tuning in to see what would happen. in the end, the jury despite this mountain of evidence, markers, dna, they found o.j. simpson not guilty. 13 years after being cleared of murder charges, he was sentenced to prison for robbery, kidnapping, assault, which led to today's parole hearing granting his freedom. earlier today before the parole hearing, the goldman family had
10:04 pm
this to say about the man they truly believe brutally murdered their loved ones, watch this. >> i think his whole history of violence, ignoring the law, no respect for the law, no remorse for virtually anything he's ever done is an indication of who wet is as a person. i don't think there's any reason to think he's going to be a decent human being in society. >> his propensity is to be violent, his propensity is to go above and beyond what the lawpe dictates he should do. our society afforded him his freedom when they acquitted him, i want them to be remembered violence. violence. it >> sean: while speaking in front of the parole board, he was a mix of emotions, at times he got angry, at other times he was smiling and laughing. here's what he had to say earlier today.
10:05 pm
>> i'm not a guy who has conflicts on the street. i don't expect to have them when i leave here. but i feel that i'm much better prepared. more so from my commitment to being a better christian, i thought i was a good guy. i had some problems withth fidelity in my life, but i've always been a guy who pretty much got along with everybody. i've always thought i've been pretty good with people, i have spent a conflict free life. >> sean: pretty unbelievable. joining us now with reaction, someone who extensively covered the murder trial in the 1990s, tmc's harvey levin. careers, some of our mutual friends, careers were made on this case. >> i've got a couple of reactions here. the hilarious part which is when he says he's never really had conflicts in his life. his ex-wife called 911 so many times, she said i'm calling about o.j. simpson i think you know his record, that's absurd..
10:06 pm
i love you, i'm going to say it. you spend 2 minutes talking about the murder case and yout. went through all of the evidence and i agree with you. >> sean: i love inviting harvey levin on my show to beat me >> i apologize.. >> sean: no, go ahead. >> to me he is the guilty is man i've ever seen in a murder case and i've covered this gavel to gavel. h that said, he was found not guilty. everything you just said about that murder case is why iai believe o.j. simpson should be paroled. the judge in that kidnapping case was a renegade judge who just wanted her pound to flesh because she was passed off that oj was found not guilty. she shouldn't have the right to superimpose a verdict in a murder case, shouldn't have. served even nine years for this. he shouldn't have. the parole board did what they should have done.
10:07 pm
>> sean: i agree with everything you just said, what if you would -- i was laying out the facts, i was realizing on the radio show today that someg of the people working for me were five years old they didn't cover this the way we did. i guess it speaks volumes about our age. >> in my office, two years old. >> sean: i see the young kids you work with, it cracks me up. they get you pretty good on your show. the evidence you agree with me was overwhelming and incontrovertible in the murder case and that he was held liable in the civil trial. >> but look. o.j. simpson went through two major criminal trials. in both cases, justice and o.j. simpson never reallyot intersected. in the murder case, that was a verdict against the misdeeds of the los angeles police department. in the kidnapping case, the judge wanted to retake on theic
10:08 pm
murder case and tried to sentence him for that, not whatu was before that in both cases, justice wasn't served. >> sean: but it was an armed robbery, he did to help organize this and lead this, there was danger here. whether it's about memorabilia or not, 33 years, agreed way too much. i think the sentence was harsh and i don't disagree. harvey levin, tmz, thank you. joining us now with more reaction, geraldo rivera. fox news anchor, attorney gregg jarrett on the phone, author of in contempt. former prosecutor of o.j. simpson's murder trial. you've been out there all day, let's talk about your thoughts. more than any other show in america, you defined this case. it was the ratings to your cable show, you brought cable alive at that time.
10:09 pm
>> there have been three major events in his life, one with the acquittal in the murder case which caused me to be absolutelt outraged. then he was found in a couple years later to be civilly liable for the wrongful deaths of ronou and nicole. i was elated and so was much of america. today wasn't something i predicted. i thought the paroled board did what they had to do. that armed robbery and kidnapping in las vegas in that hotel room, it was like the keystone crooks. oj largely going to get stuff that the memorabilia dealers of they had reportedly stolen from oj. the fact that he did nine years and obeyed the rules, i hate the guy. i think he got away with murder, he butchered the mother of his children. he is despicable. he played the race card to the nth degree.en but in this case the law was
10:10 pm
followed. nine years is an awfully long time for the facts and circumstances that are described. armed robbery, kidnapping, burglary. it really wasn't that, o.j. simpson -- a year or two years would've been top. >> sean: you don't want this guy out of jail, period, do you think is a danger? >> absolutely is a danger.u prior convictions, he beat his wife. any other information that shows the in mate is a risk and a threat to the public it's in the guidelines. this is on the parole board's website, they ignored that.he they made a deliberate decisiond in advance and it was abundantly clear today when the parole members said we are not going to consider the civil judgment that he brutally murdered two people, nor his acquittal in the criminal case.t
10:11 pm
i think that was a mistake. they have latitude and discretion to consider, they chose not to.e >> sean: the world watched as you and marsha clark, prosecuted this case. i went through the overwhelming amount of evidence, incontrovertible evidence. the verdict comes in that day. how do you feel about these many years later?es >> toughest day in my career. to watch that jury come back it seemed to be the kind of case where there was just no other decision reasonable people could come true. the evidence was overwhelming. >> sean: the verdict comes in that day and you see two very different reactions in the country. i thought you guys did your job. maybe the glove having shrunk, you weren't prepared for that. shy of that, isn't this a case where it's a slam dunk your mind?
10:12 pm
>> i knew on paper it was a fantastic case. it was los angeles and the lot had gone on in los angeles.s. riots, rodney king, the poor relationship the black community had with the l.a.p.d. politically, socially, it was tough. it's tough to get a conviction of an african-american. >> sean: good to talk to again i know it's been many years, when we come back we'll have more with gregg jarrett, more on the breaking news. o.j. simpson will be free as of october. newt gingrich, we have a mini model up tonight on destroy trump alliance that is working every day to take this president down and his administration. our republic is a part of it. senator ted cruz in studio, he's got a proposal that will lower everybody's health care premium,
10:13 pm
while his republicans listen? e n [ dog whimpers ] man: let's go! man #2: we're not coming out! man #1: [ sighs ] flo: [ amplified ] i got this. guys, i know being a first-time homeowner is scary, but you don't have to do this. man #2: what if a tree falls on our garage? woman: what if a tornado rips off our roof? flo: you're covered. and you've bundled your home and auto insurance, so you're saving a ton. come on. you don't want to start your new life in a dirty old truck. man #3: hey. man #1: whoa, whoa. flo: sorry. woman: oh. flo: you're safe.
10:14 pm
you're safe now. woman: i think i'm gonna pass out. can you stop using the bullhorn? flo: i don't make the rules.
10:15 pm
10:16 pm
yeah, and i can watch thee bgame with directv now.? oh, sorry, most broadcast and sports channels aren't included. and you can only stream on two devices at once. this is fun, we're having fun. yeah, we are. no, you're not jimmy. don't let directv now limit your entertainment. xfinity gives you more to stream to more screens. >> i basically have spent a conflict free life. i'm not a guy that ever got into
10:17 pm
fights on the street with the public and everybody, i'm not at guy who lived the criminal life. i'm a pretty straight shooter. i always tried to be a good soldier.ld >> sean: that was o.j. simpson speaking earlier today during his parole hearing saying he has lived a conflict free life. really? joining us now, geraldo rivera, gregg jarrett how many times, i think you know me, you know his record, images of her with her face bashed in. >> here's a guy who was a batterer, his wife was victim of domestic violence, as sure as i'm sitting here, if he is no convicted of one, that means he's done at least ten times more. this is domestic violence homicide, what happened in that room in the casino.
10:18 pm
the guy is delusional. >> sean: i'm sitting here talking to gregg jarrett and he followed the case closer like you did. both of you have the same perception. you think he's such a narcissist. do you think he's aware that all the evidence is so overwhelming he really did commit this, what it somehow was able toto compartmentalize it away. >> he may be delusional, i don't know if he admits in the dark of night that he butchered his children's mother and her friend ron goldman. in terms of its volatile personality, there is no doubthi that this is a man who has raged just below the surface. >> sean: do you think he's so narcissistic, you don't think he's aware? >> i interviewed him after the acquittal.
10:19 pm
i think he's in complete denial when i asked him tough questions, he seemed to really melt with vacuous answers. >> sean: how could you be in denial if you killed two people? >> he's one of those people psychologically. so deeply troubled that he can actually convince himself and believe that he didn't do what he did. >> sean: you believe he doesn't know he did it? >> i have a very good friend who's a psychiatrist. i asked him about it back then. how was this even possible? he said that some people have the ability to completely block out bad things including their own bad acts. >> but he is also conscious of his bad acts, he can block them out and put them on the back burner. when he said he was good to read that book "if i did it" that'sou him on the cliff admitting i'm not going to admit it to but i really did do it. >> i read portions of that, yout can still find it online. when you read it it's abundantly clear he did it.en >> he knows he did it. >> sean: he didn't see you today because i think he
10:20 pm
probably would have -- his face would've contorted. >> i would've loved that. i remember when i confronted scott peterson i would've loved to see o.j. simpson. i think this is a psychopathic personality. his attorney at the trial they lost, the las vegas hotel room robbery, he predicts that the slightest little incident could spark more violence in oj. if he goes public and he goes night clubbing it's all over. he stays private. -- >> sean: i'll be looking for killers on the golf course. a quick programming note, tune in sunday night at 8:00 p.m. for o.j. simpson, justice served posted by geraldo rivera. coming up, establishment republicans have done nothing to help the president establish his agenda, i'll share my thoughts in an important monologue,e, thy need to get their act together. newt gingrich will weigh in, senator ted cruz and studio talks about how to lower premiums at health care.

"the president has confidence in sessions." his legal team has resigned not even two months after he took the job. seen here on your right has grown frustrated and is concerned whether he was being told the truth about matters.
10:26 pm
robert muller, who is leading the russia investigation, he did not respond to request for comment. now back to "hannity" for all of your headlines. log on to have a great night. >> sean: new evidence and at the washington, d.c., swamp in the deep state, there trying to sabotage, undermine, destroy donald trump's residency, that's the subject of tonight's mini monologue. president trump has been an office for six months, he has a long list of a compliment despite getting no help from congressional republicans. we've been telling you about ths five forces that have been working against the president and tonight i want to focus on establishment republicans inin particular. he told g.o.p. lawmakers that inaction is not an option of getting rid of obamacare. in the senate, the effort to repeal and replace the disastrous health care law is
10:27 pm
stalled and were not sure how it's all going to turn out here. it's very frustrating, beyond frustrating, all of us here for years, we've been hearing over and over again. 2010, 2014, 2016 we have to get rid of obamacare. the american people have been bearing the burden for obamacare. instead of republicans keeping their solemn promise of seven years, they haven't done a thing. tonight, we are asking him why that is. are there enough establishment republicans now that are willing to go down with the ship? maybe risk their seat? because of their hatred for president trump. t isn't this supposed to be the republican party, the party ofis repeal and replace. isn't it supposed to be the party of energy independence. it isn't at the party of originalist him on the court, a party of safety and security of the homeland.nd do these republicans not care about low taxes, less government, grading jobs? president trump's agenda is what the republican party tells us they stand for. their relation to be anyda excuses, at this point there
10:28 pm
should be some sort of tangible progress. so tonight these republicans whd aren't doing everything they could do to pass the president's agenda through congress, the agenda that you the american people voted for and deserve, they need to take a good hard look in the mirror tonight. if you're in congress, the house, the senate and you're not doing your job, if you're not serving the american people for public servants, but to somebody else do the job you want to. robert mueller special counsel is on the massive witch hunt, bloomberg reporting to death of the special counsel is looking into business transactions and financial dealings of president trump.s people who are connected to his campaign. this comes after president trump last night told "the new york times" that robert mueller would be crossing the line if he did that. this is what i've been talking about when i say the deep estate
10:29 pm
is at work. someone leaked this information to bloomberg to try to damage the president and annoy the president and frustrate the president. today another example of the deep states. "the wall street journal" is s reporting that the special counsel is investigating for possible money issues it will have the latest is that develops. mueller should be investigating who is looking these to the press. nothing is done to stop them and they continue. aside from these potentially criminal leaks, mueller has massive conflict of interest. for example, president trump pointed out to the times, a huge conflict of interest, the mainstream media has largely ignored. do you know the day before he was appointed to special counsel, guess what? he was interviewed by president trump for the fbi director job. he knew he had a chance to be appointed special counsel yet he still interviewed to be the fbi director, it's beyond
10:30 pm
ridiculous. also mueller has severale other conflicts of interest.on he's bffs with james comey he was a key witness in this investigation. that could be a potential violation of the law. p mueller, what did he do? look at the people he's hired. members on his team who have donated thousands of thousands of dollars to hillary clinton and barack obama. tens and thousands of t dollars to the likes of these people, okay. one of the lawyers on his team, guess what. he used to be hillary clinton's lawyer at the clinton foundation. joining us now, author of "the new york times" bestseller understanding trump, former speaker of the house, newt gingrich. that's a pretty big conflict of interest. >> the investigation has so many conflicts of interest it's
10:31 pm
almost an absurdity. the law firm he comes from gave 99.81% of its donations to hillary clinton last year. .19 of 1% went to donald trump. the people who he is hiring are all anti-trump several of them have very badm records of hiding information from the defense, one case was rebuked by the supreme court in a 9-0 votes. it's hard to understand why he would assemble such a team unless it was a deliberate effort to go after the president and the president's team. i don't understand whether judiciary committees aren't investigating a lot of this stuff. the point you made about leaks is a perfectly good example. the leaks have to be coming from inside mueller's team, whose leaking? was nothing being done about it. i think it's a very reasonable
10:32 pm
to say this is a very dangerous witch hunt that mueller keeps expanding because he can't find anything in the original charge. he's not going to find anything about trump and russia and yet he's hired all of these guys who have given up there to make a very expensive law services to get somebody and they're going to find somebody to prosecute because there's too many lawyers pay too much money for them to go home and a compass nothing. >> sean: he had applied for the fbi director's job, his best friends with james comey who leaked on purpose to get this special counsel. how do you higher all these people who only donated to clinton and obama and democrats? how was that anyway fair and now we've moved three steps beyond what the original investigation was supposed to be about because there's no there there. >> one of the great weaknesses we have with traditional
10:33 pm
republicans is they allow the deep estate in the news media to set the terms of the conversation. i'm perfectly happy to investigate foreign influence peddling of the united states and efforts to shape the united states but how do you do that without investigating the clinton foundation, hillary clinton, bill clinton, all the people surrounding them? i'm perfectly happy to have them be tough-minded about trump but they are to be tough-minded about mueller. they are to be tough-minded about comey. how can he testify and say, the arrogance of saying i gave this link to a friend of mine at colombia university so he would give it to "the new york times, so i would give it to the special counsel. that is such a blatant public arrogant abuse of power, where's the investigation? why isn't comey in the process p of being investigated? >> sean: all great questions,
10:34 pm
i've got to tell you. this is getting really ugly and the conflicts of interest and double standards are amazing. we'll take a break, will have r more with newt gingrich right after this break. texas senator ted cruz will join us later in the studio, he'll explain how republicans can get to a "yes" on repealing, replacing obamacare and lowering premiums. later tonight. >> here's a news flash for the leftist mainstream media. just because you're obsessed with nitpicking personal habitss doesn't mean the american people give a -- >> sean: final word on this busy breaking news night tonight on "hannity." noo introducing the easiest way to get gillette blades text "blades" to gillette on demand

10:38 pm
>> sean: welcome back to "hannity" we continue with former speaker of the house newt gingrich. you've said on this program that you believe as a republican, if they don't get their act together and don't get their job done, there's a chance that nancy pelosi could be speaker again, and elected in 2018. how big a danger in this and what do you think needs to get done for that not to happen? >> i'm delighted you're having ted cruz on tonight because he is working very hard to try to unlock the process of how do we get to 50 votes plus the vice president in the senate. that's a very important conversation you're going to have with him.ce i think the key is to pass a very big tax cut by thanksgiving
10:39 pm
to make sure that it's retroactive to january 1st, 15% corporate rates. they also get an incentive, very substantial middle-class tax cuts, repatriation of trillion dollars overseas. if we can pass something that clean and simple by thanksgivin thanksgiving, we will have huge economic boom last year. combined with what secretary perry is doing it energy, a lot of good things out there happening. they're deregulating 16 regulations, a huge extort event spread all of that could come together. but if we end up stumbling into 2018, the economy gets soft, we can't pass a tax cuts. that i think is a very grave danger, we could have a speaker pelosi and she would be a nightmare for president trump and every thing i believe would
10:40 pm
be happening. >> sean: you wanted to do the tax cuts he wanted to get the t economy going. you want the biggest fan of starting with health care. at this point, i don't think failure is an option. that got to get it done, i don't really care either way. it's got to be repealed transition, i'm fine with that.. hopefully they will get it right in the interim, and other issues like cooperatives.s. i don't care if they do a bill and create the opportunity to create those options as senator cruz is talking about. >> i think they're going to make one more very serious effort ink the next few days to try to pasr it. i give senator mcconnell credit for an enormous persistence. i know you're talking about republicans in general. you've got 46 or 47 republicans, standing right in line in the senate.
10:41 pm
you did finally get an absolute majority in the house.u that's the nature of the american constitution. sometimes you have to play the hand you're dealt, not the hand you wish for. there are ways to break this bill up, to do three or four bills and eventually work your way through it. it's not what you would like, it's not what i would like, i would bet you that mitchou mcconnell is not going to quit. trump is not going to quit. were going to eventually get there. but in the interim come as a matter of schedule. we have to have a very large tax cut. by thanksgiving. >> sean: you said make it retroactive, which i think is a great idea. eight weeks "new york times," coming up republican lawmakers,, can they get their act together? senator ted cruz than later.y
10:42 pm
>> this morning i got an alert from cnn, it was a real doozy. after six months in office, president trump has tweeted 991 times. for some cable news network's, this is considered breaking news. >> sean: tomi lahren takes on the mainstream left-wing establishment tonight as she gets the final word, straight ahead. takes on the mainstream left-wing establishment tonight as she gets the final word, straight ahead. ♪ when heartburn hits fight back fast with new tums chewy bites. fast relief in every bite. crunchy outside. chewy inside. tum tum tum tum new tums chewy bites. ♪ music edible arrangements for summer. order in store or online. when a fire destroyedd with us the living room. we were able to replace everything in it.

10:46 pm
>> we have no choice, we have to the repeal and replace obamacare. we can repeal it, but the best is repeal and replace and let's get going. obamacare was a big lie.t you can keep your dr.? live. you can keep your plan come lie. it was a lie directly from the president. t i'm ready to act, for seven years you promised the american people that you would repeal obamacare. people are hurting, inaction ise not an option. >> sean: that was president trump yesterday speaking with republican senators after they fail to keep their promise to repeal andas replace senate majority leader mitch mcconnell says he plans toto call a vote next week on the motion to proceed on the g.o.p. health care bill.
10:47 pm
among the possible amendments, senator ted cruz consumer freedom option which freesal insurers from obamacare regulations that would drive down premiums. according to the hhs, analysis of his amendments, it would lower premiums and increase more under his plan than it would under obamacare by 2024. here is the man himself to expelling all that, good to see it, how are you.n, reading your plan, tell me if i'm right. you can save how much is a family, how dramatic is the decrease? >> hhs started the consumer freedom option, it concluded that you would see 2.2 million more people get insurance. you know how the democrats and the media, consumer freedom and expands coverage, more people get health insurance. for people that choose the freedom plans, that by applying off the exchange off the obamacare mandates, their
10:48 pm
premiums would drop over $7,000 a year. for those who decide to stay on the obamacare exchanges, because of the power of competition, their premiums dropped by over $5500 a year, that's real money in people's pockets. >> sean: its serious reductions. i was asking at the beginning of my monologue tonight, i'm asking, does the republican party, do they want to be theht party of freedom, capitalism, entrepreneurship, competition, solid borders, secure borders energy independence, what party do they want to be? >> it's simple, what do we for and to our weight. the message i'm conveying to my colleagues is simple. let's do what we said we would do. for seven years, we've campaigned on repealing obamacare. we've got the chance to do it, the houses past a repeal bill, it's in the senate, the president is ready to sign it and it's up to the senate republicans. were either going to step up to the bar and keep our word however were going to look at the voters in the eye and break
10:49 pm
our words.s. i hope it's not the letter.r >> sean: if they do what newt gingrich says, a possibility of a speaker pelosi exists. >> i think that's very possible. the central premise of seven years. if you know one thing about republicans it's that we are going to repeal obamacare, over and over again we said give us the house in 2010, they did. give us the white house, and 2016, they did. we've got to step up and just do it. >> sean: where are we now, it keeps going back and forth between repeal and transition. or the bill that you worked on with your amendment, i like youu amendment. if that could be part of the transition, fine, i would be fine with that too. >> i would vote for complete repeal, one sentence obamacare is repealed. , the end. unfortunately there are a bunch of republicans, who are scared to vote for that they won't vote for that. >> sean: we select in the house, nearly 68 votes. just like you got in trouble, i remember supporting you the
10:50 pm
night you were filibustering, they would've done it then. and use their constitutional authority, power of the purse we wouldn't be here. >> it was a big fight, we could have stopped it then. we've got a chance now. there is an agreement to be reached. we have 52 republicans and anyone who is standing up against this, i would just ask you what to do till the vote of his last eight years? how are you going to look them in the eye and say you had a chance to repeal obamacare and you said no. we need to come together and there is a path to u.s. we probably got 45, 46 yeses. it's just four or five people holding out. lower in competition, you thee consumer to be in charge of the health care. >> sean: i believe there are five things republicans better have done if they want to keep
10:51 pm
power which they asked for, 2010. the president was able to do it, they got him in the senate. obamacare has to be done, it's not an option. if you don't get it done, they're going to pay a price. energy will create millions of high-paying career jobs. the american people by 2018 better see 300 miles of that border fence they've been promised. >> i want a lot more than 300 miles. that's fair. we need to get it built, i've introduced the asked to take all of his resources and the mexican drug lords and use it to build a wall. t >> sean: i like the president's economic plan, it's very reaganesque. middle-class tax cuts come up repatriation, multinational corporations. all the people in poverty on food stamps, what happens to them?lt >> tax cuts are a big, big deal, we need to do tax cuts, we needed a tax reform.
10:52 pm
if we screw up obamacare repeal, tax reform becomes much harder. if we get this right, if we follow through on obamacare repeal, it sets this up for thip to be the most productive congress in decades. whereas if we are paralyzed, we could blow a historic opportunity. i don't want us to blow this opportunity and i know the american people don't want us to blow it. >> sean: i watched you after the meeting the white house, the lunch with the president. i watched very close, you saidow failure is not an option. i don't see some of yourf colleagues saying failure is not an option.ll >> i fear that some of the more moderate republicans -- >> sean: what of those conversations like with you? >> what i hope is not the case is that they are happy obamacare is staying on the books.s. what they've been saying to the voters, they don't actually mean. i can tell you my colleagues sat behind closed doors when it comes to repeal in 2015, virtually every republican votee to repeal.
10:53 pm
>> how they justify not doing it now? >> a bunch of them say we knew obama was going to be toys. now it actually happened and we won't put forth. that's why people are fed up. just do what you said. it's not complicated, do what you said, keep your word and this hhs study again shows what a big deal it is for results. >> sean: will likely supported? >> i think rand made it clear he's voting no no matter what. >> sean: and senator mccain is sick. >> we got to come together and i think the way you bring together conservatives, moderates, leadership and the white house which i'm trying to do, focus on lowering premiums. if were sitting here in people'a premiums have gone down five, six, $7,000 a year. that's a win for everyone, it's one for moderates, conservatives. >> sean: every american deserves and needs that desperately. >> it's also how we grow our senate majority.
10:54 pm

>> welcome back to "hannity." all we, tommy laren has been giving us the final word. here is tonight. >> hey, sean. final word tonight is for the leftist mainstream media. this morning i got an alert from cnn. it read "after six months, president trump has tweeted 991 times." for some cable news network this is considered breaking news. i don't care how many times he has tweeted. i don't care who he sits by at

international dinners. i don't care how many scoops of ice cream he asks for. here is a news flash for the leftist mainstream media. it just because you are upset and nitpicking his personal habits, that doesn't mean the american people care. we don't have the time or luxury to worry about these things, because average americans worry about putting food on the table for families. weng care about having a job too to every day, and we care about the safety and security of our communities and our border. here's a news flash to you leftist mainstream media. we finally have a president who cares about those things, which is why he signed 42 bills into law, most of which free government, empower business owners, increase our energy independence, and help keep america safe at the border and our backyard. it's called america first. this radical notion that we come first in our own country. keep reporting on his tweets, but don't get it twisted. the average american is making a
