week. >> welcome to this special edition of "hannity" ," trump versus the left. i'm jeanine pirro end tonight. from day one president trump has never been afraid to call out biased members of the press when they distort his record or report fake news, and during a rally last night in pennsylvania, the president once again stood up to those in the media who want nothing more than to see him fail. take a look. >> president trump: i met with nato. now it nato in all fairness, 29
countries including us. nato has been ripping us, we've been defending europe and they are not paying their bills. so i went in and i said, folks, you have to pay up, you are delinquent. so i said to my wife, i just raised like a couple hundred billion dollars, and it was so easy. it was so easy. i said honey, wait until you see the press i got on this. it's going to be great. and here is what the fake news said. they said, donald trump, our president, was extremely rude to presidents and prime ministers, and i'm in a couple of cases, dictators. but that's all right. donald trump was very new rudy. rude. they don't talk about the money
i've raised. and actually i have a better relationship than any other president. i was asked to have tea with the queen, it was incredible by the way. i was about 15 minutes early and i was waiting with my wife, and that's fine. it's the queen, we can wait. we go up and we have tea. i didn't know this, it was supposed to last 15 minutes but it lasted an hour because we got along. so here was the story by the fake news. the president was 15 minutes late for the queen. wrong. and then, here is the rest of the story. so they said i was late when i was actually early. number two, i guess the meeting was scheduled for 15 minutes and it lasted almost an hour. the president overstayed. but they can make anything bad
because they are the fake, fake, disgusting news. >> janine: as you might imagine the very thin skinned media in this country does not take well to criticism. at over the last 24 hours they lashed out against president trump and his allies, take a look. >> i know that the dangerous blustering bigot on the stage last night is even more boorish and less connected to reality than he was ten years ago. donald trump is not well and everyone close to him says that. >> your president announced his campaign by talking about building a wall -- >> he is the president of the united states. >> i will never claim a bigot, ever. the same bigots who are sending people back away from their children are the ones who brought my ancestors here. congratulations. >> that speech the president gave in pennsylvania, there were children behind him. i saw at least three children,
two twin girls, i can get those kids out of my mind and i hope those people do more than just listen to him at a rally because our president stood up there and lied and i can only hope those americans have access to the truth because that's not what the president gave them at that rally. >> president trump is acting like a ship's captain and ex-own. it has not been seen in the american white house since the last of dark, dank, dog days of watergate. >> janine: while many in the media push anti-trump victory all every every day, white house secretary sarah sanders was quick to remind them what happens when the language of the left spins out of control. watch. >> the media has attacked me personally on a number of occasions including your own network comments that i should be harassed as a life sentence, is that i should be choked. ice officials are not welcome in their place of worship and personal information is shared on the internet. when i was hosted by the correspondents association of which almost all of you are
members of, you brought a comedian up to attack my appearance and called me a traitor to my own agenda. in fact, as far as i know i'm the first press secretary in the history of the united states that has required secret service protection. the media continues to ratchet up the verbal assault against the president and everyone in this administration and certainly we have a role to play but the media has a role to play for the discourse in this country as well. >> janine: naturally those comments from sanders were met with even more resentment, watch this. because she says she speaks on behalf of the president and she's made her, clear, time and again that the press is the enemy of the people. even when the white house press secretary will not say that the working press is not the enemy of the people. it's pernicious, it's dangerous, and this is not media elite people defending media elite people. it comes out of totalitarian regimes to declare that a free
press is the enemy of the peopl people. >> janine: and if you think that's bad, it's even worse that some of america's biggest newspapers. may i introduce you to the next editorial board member of "the new york times," sarah joh john. in 2015 sheikh tweeted "i was equating trump to hitler before it was cool. "she also lashed out against white people, tweeting "hashtag cancel white people." and "arched white people genetically predisposed to burn faster in the sun, thus logically only being fit to live underground like traveling goblins? "she also tweeted out her hatred for police, writing" [bleep] the police" and, "cops are [bleep]."
"the new york times" just defended hiring a person. meanwhile the worst example of media bias this week is something called bias of omission. for example cnn spent less than a minute covering the ceremony where vice president pence received the remains of american servicemen who died during the korean war. msnbc didn't cover it at all. the mainstream media is also happy to largely ignore the president's soaring new approval rating. they are also playing down america's a record-setting economy. the unemployment rate is now an incredibly low 3.9%. joining us now with more as counselor to the president, kellyanne conway. good evening, kelly end. >> could good evening and thanks for having me. and congratulations on your stellar book.
>> janine: and thank you. what we have heard over the last couple of days is stunning enough but the reaction of the press to sarah sanders in the reaction by the press and they are now saying that everyone close to the president knows that he is not well, like mika brezinski, and the claim that the president is not well by chris matthews, do we really think that those 10,000 people cheering in pennsylvania and wilkes-barre were stupid and couldn't figure out if this president were smart with the program or not with the program? >> kellyanne: well that's the thing, judge. all across the country, and i traveled frequently out on behalf of the white house, he was in florida and pennsylvania already this week, and he does that for a very specific reason. he takes the case directly to the people, and the middleman doesn't like it.
he communicates with all of us the very same time what's on his mind at any given moment through his vast social media platform and cuts out the middleman. i don't want to lose sight of how much affection and appreciation there is in this country for the president and his policy. people know exactly what you just said, a booming economy. and people know it. i went through the crowd last night in pennsylvania, they are there because they are appreciative of having options in this job market. they are appreciative of having more money in their pockets and their bank account that gives them freedom and confidence and buoyancy. it won't matter who tells them that that's not the truth. they see it in their 401(k)s and they see it in their paychecks, they see it in their home values. the other thing is, i know there's a lot of hand-wringing about the media bias, and this,
that and the other. i mean, as the ocean wet? but the fact is the bias of activity is what i've been talking about since the campaign sent me through the administration. you can look at biased coverage but i think what is harming america is what i call incomplete coverage, the omission of all the stories that are actually news that you can use. details and facts and figures that people need to know as americans, so the administration and the media each has that platform, which is much bigger honestly. but we have responsibilities to make sure people get information. >> janine: i want to interrupt you for a second. they are not doing it but when you talk about what's going on in this country, forget about the media that is just totally focused against donald trump. i want to get on another subject in a minute. but the animal spirits that are
going on, the instincts in this country, when the president talked about valley forge on the role of steel in pennsylvania, and he's integrating the two issues. the economy and a patriotism. and i thought it was brilliant the way he did it. i want to go on to this woman, "the new york times" is going on the editorial board of "the new york times," sarah jeong. most journalists operate under the guidance of the editorial board and this woman is anti-cop, she's antiwhite, anti-men, everything that she said is explosive and her tweets and yet "the new york times" is supporting her on their editorial board. so has the gray lady flipped her lid, what are they doing? >> kellyanne: it's a little shocking that the bias of this particular writer would be so
biased and flagrant. i'm surprised she still has a job because, she's expressing her opinion but on the other hand you and i can say here with hardly even thinking about it and come up with ten or 20 instances where people lost their job, or frankly less than that. i do want to shine a light in case viewers and listeners missed it, i used to do polling for the "miami herald" and i knew years ago in florida and he referred to the trump supporters in florida, if you put them all together you would have a full set of teeth. he said that. then when people attacked him and asked him to retract that on social media, he doubled down and said, did i hurt your feelings? he called them garbage, garbage people. he said that i heard the garbage people's feelings? let me go get a fainting couch.
this is a level of discourse. and let me tell you, not everybody in the media is the same and not every day in the industry is the same but there is this growing sameness between what is covered in what is excluded from the coverage that is harming. but it's shocking to me that people still have a job. it's not so shocking to me that the media has a 17% approval rating, theirs is going down where the presidents is actually rising as you said. and to not cover the repatriation, they need our fallen heroes as they the remains came to north korea. >> it's about trashing the president and trashing the people who elected him president and that's dangerous. >> we live through a campaign,
it won't work. we provide positive candidates in this country with the exception of 1972, this electorate has always chosen the presidential candidate who they found more positive. >> knowing what you know, and the president's first term historically is the party that loses the midterm, what do you think it will happen in? >> obama lost seats and they had also taken action outside of the mainstream. they didn't give historic tax cuts for historic regulation to try to bring peace and dark corners around the world. >> i do, and the one thing we are up against that we cannot control our 42 republican house retirements, that's devastating. the president doesn't follow trends, he makes the trends.
he doesn't repeat history company makes history. he will be out there doing his level best. >> janine: so you think is going to make history and the midterms. >> kellyanne: absolutely. and by the way nobody is predicting 60 seat losses. >> all right, you got it all in. coming up on this special edition of "hannity," trumps legal team will reportedly decide within days whether the president will sit down with an interview with robert mueller. and don't forget, be sure to pick up a copy of my new book, "liars, leakers and liberals."
>> janine: welcome back. they call out the russia collusion hoax as long as i can because it gives them something to talk about. rudy giuliani, part of the presidents legal team will decide in the next ten days with the trump will sit down with an interview with robert mueller. plus today marks the close of day number four of the manafort trial. joining us now from washington is allison barber. >> for months president trump's legal team has come back and forth on whether or not the president will sit down with an interview with special counsel robert mueller. one thing at issue are the questions investigators plan to ask him. the presidents personal attorney sent a letter asking about the scope and format of an intervie
interview. manna for its accountant testified for immunity, and classified income as a loan which would lower manafort's taxes. he's facing chat mike charges related to financial fraud and he was indicted by special counsel robert mueller. the things we usually think of when we talk about the special counsel, russia, and
president trump, both have been topics at the trial but they are certainly elephants in the room. >> janine: thanks so much. joining us now with reaction is the author of "the new york times" best seller, "the russia hoax." the illicit scheme to clear hillary clinton and frame donald trump. gregg jarrett and tom fenton. we just heard from ellison barber, and i will start with you, tom. can you please tell me why robert mueller and the special counsel is prosecuting the case where an account is talking about falsified records having nothing to do with donald trump or russia? >> the special counsel doesn't need to be prosecuting that case. the u.s. attorney could have -- >> janine: it then why is he? >> he's trying to justify his existence so he can continue to
be around the operation generally to target president trump. the question about whether he has been interviewed by him robert mueller is answered by the report we just heard that he is fishing around with this madam in new york. what an outrage. this is not what anyone signed up for. and it's an egregious abuse of justice and the rule of law. >> it was him on that land of original special counsel order and a few weeks ago i set i was sick of talking about them. why are they doing this? >> it's completely abusive by both. and you can't be a witness and a prosecutor simultaneously. but this just underscores that the president should not be interviewed by robert mueller. >> janine: you don't think he
should? >> no and here's why. mueller has charged and is prosecuting michael flynn for lying even though flynn told the truth. mueller doesn't care about the truth, he doesn't care about justice. so if the president sits down with mueller and tells the truth, mueller will tell the truth and say the president is lying. it doesn't matter what trump said. >> janine: but you can't indict the president, a sitting president. that's clear under the law, and decisions. so what are we doing here? >> i don't think the president should cooperate in helping mueller right has impeachment report, and as greg notes it's thoroughly corrupted. the whole superstructure has been corrupted by peter strzok, by steele, the clinton dnc
dossier, ceiling records to get mueller appointed, the partnership of the prosecutors he has, and the justice department should protect president trump from this continued harassment and to shut mueller down. no other prosecutor would be allowed to harass the president with questions about issues that he can't be indicted on, this is crazy. >> janine: it so tom is right, the doj should protect the president and they are obviously not doing that. so the president should not sit down with mueller. what benefit does he get? >> from his standpoint, he feels like he is innocent and unfairly persecuted. he says i didn't talk to anyone, i didn't collude and if anyone in my campaign data, i didn't know about it. i represented a few innocent people and they wanted to scream
from the rooftops, i'm innocent. and that's how president trump feels. however as an inferior officer, mueller has no legal right to question him. >> janine: as he said in the next ten days or nine days, what happens? does mueller subpoena it? >> mueller knows he would lose in federal court. >> janine: judicial watch, and you know i'm always complementing you for what you do. you get stuff that congress can't get which makes me crazy because congress has oversight but we will say that for another time. new documents, talk to me. what did you find out today and your freedom of information request? >> of the fbi gave us heavily redacted documents.
and they were spending money on steel. they met with them 13 times in 2016 and 11 of those visits ended in cash going out to steal, it looks like. then in november it looked like they decided they couldn't use them as a source anymore because they broke the rules by disclosing his relationship with the fbi. and we know that after that, the documents are pretty devastating in that regard. >> janine: so you are saying the fbi gave christopher steele, the guy who got the money indirectly from hillary clinton and the dnc, got cash from the fbi 11 times? >> yes, the obama fbi were cofounders of christopher steele's russia investigation into the clinton dnc operation. >> janine: my book, "liars,
leakers and liberals." if we had had that, we could have done another chapter. >> christopher steele wrote this totally phony document that the fbi used and was not only on the payroll of hitler clinton but was on the payroll of the fbi investigating seven months before the trump-russia collusion case was formally open. >> janine: sad commentary. two terrific sources for us. coming up, new numbers prove the trump economy is moving, but that isn't stopping the democrats from trying to downplay the president's successes. that's coming up when we return. the special addition
back into our country, they are coming from all over the world. remember when they said manufacturing is dead, is it? i mean who will make things. manufacturing is dead, we've added 400,000 incredible jobs. african-american, hispanic, asian. you have the lowest level of unemployment in the history of our country. how does someone fight that? the women's unemployment rate, i'm sorry women. it's the lowest in only 65 years. not history. i'm doing my best. the veteran's unemployment rate has reached the lowest level in 18 years and that will go up for everyone. [cheers and applause] more than 3.5 million americans have been lifted off of food stamps. >> janine: that was donald trump last night in pennsylvania touting his economic successes.
and it today, new economic numbers reveal the economy is booming. just look at some of these statistics. 157,000 jobs were added in july and the unemployment rate is down to 3.9%. hispanic on employment had a new record low in july. earlier today, president trump tweeted a about the great economic news, writing "july is the ninth month since 1970 that unemployment has fallen below 4%. our economy has added millions of jobs since i won the election. more than 4 million people have received a pay raise due to tax reform. $400 billion brought back from overseas. of course, the left is trying to figure out how to spin the is a great economic numbers for trump with some democrats even claiming that workers are "losing their jobs."
joining us now is the author of "why we fight." fox news security strategist sebastian gorka and austin gold to be. i want to go to your first. so you remember what he said to the inner-city, and now african-american unemployment is the lowest in history. how are you going to say that donald trump is not a good president at least in this economy? >> i'm kind of surprised that you are choosing today's job number because today's job number is almost 40,000 below what was expected. >> janine: that's expectations, that doesn't mean it's not a plus. >> 150,000 is okay. if we had this conversation last friday i would be totally on board with you, that we had a great gdp job growth number. in the president should be proud
of that number. >> janine: okay austin, i know you have a tough job tonight but you have to go after you. >> can't we just be happy for all americans, just for once? really, the new times has to hire a races for its editorial board, i get it. but let's get back into the real world. i read your book and you know the president, he wants success for all americans and this is what the left doesn't get it. i worked with him and took the job with him for one reason because he doesn't care if you voted for him or not. you could have wanted bernie to be president or you may have voted for hillary, but he wants you to succeed. he wants you to be safe and he wants you to prosper. that's a president. and the left will never believe it. >> janine: let me ask you this austin, when the democrats start running, and they are running now which is why the president has already started this push. do they just ignore the economy, poor do they talk about maybe
isis coming back? what do they say? >> i think what they would say is the numbers you've quoted where you say more than 4 million people have gotten a raise. as 150 million people in the country. if you look at job creation rates or wage growth, both of those have actually slowed down in the 18 months that we've been under donald trump. so i think they will probably highlight those facts. >> janine: and do you think that america -- i'm going to let sebastian answer that. do you think america actually agrees with nancy about, it's just problems. would they rather not see extra money in their paychecks? >> after you come austin. the one i thought you -- >> i thought you said sebastian. they haven't, the wage share of the economy is the lowest that it's ever been. >> let's get down to brass tacks. >> trump should emphasize that growth is fast and it should
emphasize that growth is coming up. >> so what should austin and his cadre say to the fact that we have the lowest minority unemployment since record-keeping began? you can't spin that. you can't say, the growth has decelerated. who cares. we have oil companies that are giving $25,000 signing bonuses in america and that is an economy unleashed. how can you not be happy to see the unemployment figures? we have basically fictional zero unemployment. we have more jobs available and people looking for jobs? >> we've had 115 months of private sector jobs, the longest streak ever. about 18 of those months were under donald trump and the rest were under barack obama. and it's great, i'm totally for it. >> the man who couldn't get 7%
gdp growth. >> janine: say that again austin? >> so you are saying we don't have -- >> a growth rate of 3%. >> so for one quarter -- it happened four different times. >> here's the problem. barack obama had us convinced that 1% gdp was the new normal. those bozos actually believed that we are now at 4.1. >> i believe that's not correct. >> i'm 100% for it. >> next friday same time. >> i'm going to hold you to it. our florida republican congressman ron desantis and mack gates.
you are running for governor in florida. great things are happening with economy and donald trump. when you run in florida, do people in florida i care about? >> absolutely, judge. we had a good run here in florida during rick scott's tenure, and now with the president is doing, particularly for a tax reform. and janine, you file your taxes in new york by getting rid of the deductions for the high tax states, that will influence a lot of people to pick up and come to florida. particularly industries where you can be here. i think we are primed to capitalize off of a lot of the good things the presidents have done and i think florida has never been in a better position as long as we keep good solid low tax a fiscally responsible policies. >> janine: congressman matt gates, you are from florida also. you just heard austin old speed
talk about the economy. what do you say to that democrats and how is that going to effect the 2018 election? do you think the americans are going to believe them? >> they should. if the democrats take over congress the head of the financial services committee will be maxine waters. letting maxine waters anywhere near the economy is about as dumb as putting hillary clinton in in charge of your i.t. department at your small business. right now we have gdp growth that's doubling in the fastest wage growth in ten years. we have home values that are rising at twice that rate and we have had the longest consecutive streak of job growth in american history. just saying, judge, it's so exhausting that it almost takess me tired of winning. >> janine: one of the things the president was talking about yesterday or last night in wilkes-barre pennsylvania, and he talked about the fact that he got nato to step up and he said
to melanie as he related to the crowd, he said tomorrow morning, $200 billion, they will love it. and they responded with he was rude to our nato allies. in the end, this midterm election, which way is it going? >> well look, judge, i think it should go the republicans way. strictly there is a reaction against the party in power but i think the combination of a strong economy on the fact that the democratic party doesn't have any idea, most of their grassroots seem to be gravitating toward socialism, like you see with the ocasio-cortez in new york, that's not a winning strategy for places like florida and other swing states. as long as you keep articulating an agenda, there will be a positive contrast to us with the democratic party that is exhausted of ideas. >> janine: matter, what about socialism and america was
stunned with the woman here, ocasio-cortez, a socialist. and i'm not sure she is willing to fully admit that, but supported by the democrats 'asked socialist. where -- are the democrats upset with that sector of the party? because if you are not as left as they are, then chances are, i would think that a lot of the more moderate democrats would either not come out for a vote differently. i'm not sure how to look at tha that. >> the dynamic you just described is why there are so many democrats in the rust belt that are part of donald trump's winning coalition. we welcome democrats who want more prosperity. if you want nancy pelosi and maxine waters in charge, if you want them to rob america of the successes we've enjoyed during donald trump's tenure, then i guess, vote democrat. but in florida we like freedom which is why we will elect ron desantis our next governor and we want to make sure in our
state that we are poised to take advantage of this roaring economy that we have created with the lower taxes, the regulation and really trusting the american people to drive their own prosperity so that we are not dependent on government for multiple generations. we become excited and really engineered for success in the long term. >> janine: congressman desantis, last question. they now have evidence that christopher steele got paid 11 times in cash by the fbi. what say you? >> well we suspected he had been paid but they didn't give a straight answer is. then we figured out he definitely was paid and now this, so i think that further undermines the credibility of the explanations we've been given. it shows they knew or should have known that 14 was working on behalf of the democratic party, and to pay him like that and family through from bruce ohr, that's a big problem with how this whole thing was done.
>> janine: but you know what, it's about time that rod rosenstein and his gang on the rest of them are made accountable, but who knows if that will ever happen. thank you, congressman. coming up, the midterm election is less than 100 days away. are democrats going too far to the left to secure votes? doug shown and janine marelli are next. and remember you can get a copy of my new book, outliers, leakers and liberals, wherever
very low iq. low iq. no, no, maxine waters is like your new star. >> janine: welcome back to the special edition of "hannity." that was president trump last night revealing who he thinks is the new leader of the democratic party. it is a far left going too far this midterm season? joining us now with reaction, fox news can jupiter janine marelli and doug shown. let me start out with a quick question. is maxine the new face of the democratic party or leader? >> i hope not, but candidly with her and people like ocasio-cortez who is just nominated in a secure democratic district, we have people who are engaging in just resistance and socialism as prominent, and are hopefully not leaders of the democratic party.
>> janine: what do you think, is maxine waters the new face of the democratic party? >> she definitely is, judge. and congratulations on your new book. >> janine: thank you. >> maxine's has nothing to do with families and working. her agenda is to impeach president trump. any chance she gets she calls the tax cuts, tax scams. i think the democrats are very desperate right now, black voters' support for president trump is on the rise. >> more for our viewers in case they live under a rock, i want you to see maxine. >> and just for inspiration, i will go and take trump out tonight. unveil the criminal activity, the constitutional activity of this president and his family.
so i have dubbed them the criminal clan come a long time ago. >> i will fight every day until he is impeached. impeach 45. this is a bunch of scumbags, that's what they are. >> those are very strong words. the fact that he has wrapping his arms around putin, while putin is continuing to advance into korea. >> janine: dog? >> the only thing that is true there if you read the front page of "the wall street journal" today, the russians are doing nothing to restrain north korea which is a problem. the rest of what she said as a load of garbage and i think as a democrat i completely distance and disassociate myself with it. >> janine: but unfortunately you have the likes of maxine and nancy who both seem to be flipping their lids, and then you have -- and i will go to you
with this, then mean, have ocasio-cortez. is the party that will historically when the midterms, for they so fractured that they are not going to win? >> i think they are very fractured. you have the likes of maxine waters and those that are the left of the left side running on a socialist agenda. when you look at the trump economy, roll back in taxes and regulations as a pro-growth economic environment, there are not enough people for jobs. something is really happening here in america where america's first agenda is working. >> janine: so dug it, you are a poster. talk to me about this alleged blue wave that is precedence, and they believe is going to happen. >> i don't see the blue wave, i think the democrats are ahead of generic voters about six or seven points which would translate into somewhere between
23, 25 or 27 seats. that's no blue wave. i would make the argument that if the republicans get sidetracked themselves in terms of shutting down the government and don't run on the economy than they are doing we democrats a big favor. talking about tax cuts for the rich unilaterally come another big favor. they talk about the economic consequences of this administration and get it gets tougher and tougher for democrats. >> janine: if the maxine's and ocasio-cortez, what do they say? how does the democrat run? >> if they will keep doubling down on the rhetoric. >> janine: on what? >> anything from the race card to sexism to the child card to come and socialism as well. we will see even more of that because of what the effects of what we are seeing, the results
from the trump economy. >> janine: so really last question. do you think the millennials even know what socialism is? >> i think they know the game is a much tougher one then when you and i were coming up, and they are looking for solutions and blaming somebody else and asking for redistribution, is their answer. and to me, it's a false answer. capitalism to me as the answer. >> janine: of capitalism. thank you very much. coming up, more of this special coming up, more of this special edition my name is jeff sheldon, and i'm the founder of ugmonk. before shipstation it was crazy. it's great when you see a hundred orders come in, a hundred orders come in, but then you realize i've got a hundred orders i have to ship out. shipstation streamlined that wh the order data, the weights of , everything is seamlessly put into shipstation, so when we print the shipping ll everything's pretty much done. it's so much easier so now, we're ready, bring on t. shipstation. the number one ch of online sellers. go to shipstation.com/tv and get two months free.
i hope you'll tune in. sean's back on monday. "the ingraham angle" is up next. have a terrific night. ♪ be alone. >> martha: i'm back on monday with "outnumbered" news. here's tucker. >> tucker: a good evening and welcome to "tucker carlson tonight." for almost two years the left has been resisting donald trump, and yet he has stubbornly refused to stopping this country's democratically elected president. unable to topple him from power by impeachment, arrest, harassment or any other means so far, the left has not given up but they become angrier and at this point totally distorted by their rage. so mad that the usual epitaphs have lost their power from overuse. nobody calls trump a sexist or big it anymore, that's too kind. he's mussolini, stalin, hitler, plus jeffrey dahmer and john wayne gacy. th
