story and we'll keep pulling the thread for you. as of tonight, we are out of time. back tomorrow, 8:00 p.m. the show that is the sworn enemy of lying, pomposity, smugness, and groupthink. have the best night. "hannity" is next. the president is expected to join him. >> sean: yes, sir. great show as always, tucker. thank you. welcome to "hannity." we start tonight with a fox news alert. we are moments awake by the president will join us for an exclusive one-on-one interview, full, complete reaction to all of the events yesterday, the squad where you don't want to miss it. it's been a very good day, two dates for the president had great days for america. horrible day if you are part of the deep state. of course, the line, conspiracy theorist in the destroyed trump medium. here's the reality. they just seem incapable of abstracting, which is i think i'm at the foundation of why they keep going here. they can't accept the 2016 election results. donald trump won.
they did not anticipated. he's the president of the united states of america. the russia hoax, those lines, they are dead and buried, and now the people that abused power, that broke the law, will be held accountable. all these impeachment fantasies are totally, completely flushed down the drain. thank god truth prevailed. this was a dangerous moment for this country. at yesterday's hearing, it was a disaster for the radical democratic party. the raging, psychotic drum painting litter takes in the media mob. tonight, they have no one to blame for this but themselves. thatms includes the democrats le schiff and nadler and everyone else in the washington swamp. many people knew robert mueller was not on top of his game. we all saw the nine minute presser. he literally contradicted his findings of obstruction, right in front of us. they saw him struggling. they saw that attorney general barr bailed him out with a joint
statement with a special counsel's office. they knew that he was saying, don't call me. and they did it anyway. he did not want to appear before congress. he wanted his report to basically be his reports. they knew his testimony prep was going badly. i knew his testimony prep and his law firm is going badly from the sources i have, and if i knew it, i'm pretty certain that they all knew it, too. here's a reality check for them. they did not care. they would were determined to e mueller, and frankly, a later stage in his life, no diss on robert mueller at all. as a political prop, though, they did that, one last time. they were hoping he was going tl say one thing they could use to just hone in on, to smear, slander, but as part of the president, spur impeachment, their goal. an abject failure, and frankly, painful at times to watch. mueller did not have a grasp on some of the most basic elements of his own report. he had a difficult time tracking questions or remembering any other details on the report.
he contradicted himself on the report on numerous occasions, as political put it, mueller was struggling. no confirmation that we were right all along. mueller is nothing more than frankly, especially towards the end of this at least, a symbolic figurehead in a special counsel's probe. he did not even know that hillary clinton's former attorney was on his staff. andrew weissmann, his pitbull,o the guy who was that hillary's victory party, did all the hiring, did not know they were all democrats? he didn't know that reagan had given him an appointment? he did not know that fusion gps? he did not know that before the so-called famous trump tower meeting that fusion gps match with the russians russian operative, before and after the meeting? in other words, for 20 months, democrats used mueller's so-called apolitical reputation. he is a decorated marine. he did serve this country, and in combat.a long serving former fbi director, using him to
legitimizere their partisan witch hunt,ir caring nothing abt the person at all? it seems like there is really publicly only one person who cared about robert mueller. kept trying to throw him a lifeline, trying to protect his reputation, knowing this would go badly. that was the attorney general. that was attorney general barr. and he was slandered and smeared for it. something was up when he very graciously agreed to that joint statement. it just didn't track in my brain. hillary clinton super fan, the guy at the victory party, andrew weissmann, the pitbull, this is the guy that sidney powell wrote about in "license to lie.". the most atrocious prosecutorial track record i have ever heard of in my life, likely running the show from day one. it actually makes that conclusion even that much more remarkable. yesterday the president tweetede that truth is a force of nature. he was right.t the left hoax has been exposed.
actually "the new york times" stumbled on some truth -- think about this. when they reported that the dossier was probably russian disinformation from the p get-g, what were they releasing there? that means, without seeing it come s with a kind of inadvertently were saying, if the russians were involved in te beginning, and they knew about steele feeding this to hillary, as they said it was likely russian disinformation from theec get-go, that means tt the russians were not helping hillary clinton and a 201601 election. that would mean6 they were tryg to screw over donald trump and get hillary elected. an investigation into the or is origins into this witch hunt is f chwell underway but the conspy theorist on msdn seek him a fake news cnn, they are racked with grief. make no mistake, there is no remorse for lying to their beers for nearly three years. they are sad the gig is up.y they've been caught spreading the conspiracy theory.
here's my production about the media. sad but true, they will never apologize to their audiences, shrinking as theyhr are, they wl never institute changes, they will never just move on to the truth and gathering truth and ever becoming real news organizations.ey they'll move onto the next mutually agreed-upon conspiracy theory with the democratic leaders and feed them information. it's a big insider cycle that they have. they h will spread all the talkg points, and they'll spend every second, every minute, every hour, of every day, trying to destroy president trump at all costs. that is their mission. still tonight, they are some of the media mob, they are clearly dejected. others are enraged. oror at least they are feigning being enraged. most are still incomplete denial. i first declared the media, journalism, and america is dead, in 2007. did not know i was as red as i was at the time. take a look. >> it's shameful, shameful, that
republicans were so focused on trying to undermine the origins of the investigation. >> they were very disrespectful, i thought, the republicans. they have a tendency to be disrespectful to veterans iner this country. >> let's not kid ourselves. this is been a wall-to-wall failure in all these committees. >> that instinct, that sort of controlled rage that you want great athletes to have before they go out into the field, that is something that democrats lack. it is not ints l their dna, andt is so frustrating. you turn to donald trump, and you say, donald, here's the deal. i may not win but neither are you because i will spend 24 hours a day, seven days a week, working, focusing, not going to sleep, until i figure out how to turn your political bones to dust. >> sean: asking jesus for forgiveness for ever being a republican. okay. after two years of claiming the
president was a russian operative, working with and for vladimir putin, who stole thehe election, and that is what you get, the so-called journalists, newsrooms, all around america, without exception, had any courage or decency at all, they would apologize to you, we, the american people for their and theirhere hoax, conspiracy theories, but they won't. it is clear, they hated -- they think about this. what do they really hate in this? half the country, smelly walmart irredeemable deplorable trump folders. you know, angry, bitter people of pennsylvania that cling to god, guns, bibles, and religion. and a lot of sanctimony there and there is a lot of elitism in all of those words?n this hatred does play cloud their judgment. that's why they friend wrong about so much. we'll admit when we are wrong but we work hard to get everything right. we did that obama, we were right about the duke lacrosse case.
i met with the kids and their families,, right about uva, ferguson, missouri, baltimore, take it back, i learned my lesson with richard jewell. i was the only one that was right on that case. look at nicholas sandmann. look at what they did to that kid for wearing a maga hat.ea look over that they did to brett kavanaugh. don't seem to care much about "i believe in" when it comes to lieutenant governor of the commonwealth of virginia. then they were wrong on the russia collusion hoax on the list goes on and on. that brings us back to the media's favorite hacks, and that would be the cowardly adam schiff. i've offered him four hours of airtime, our own tv, three hours on 620 of the best radio stations in america. he never gets back toe me. over the course of trump's presidency, schiff has participated -- look at this -- 419 tv interviews. 419! knocked with a show. he spread real conspiracy he spread real conspiracy theories about russia, created false hope in all of these liberals, and all those resistant members -- resistance
members.pi despite many offers to come on the program for the full hour, he always declined now the cowardly schiff knew he was full of b.s., he knew he was lying. he kept raising the bar, expectations, he says, i've seen it,, we've got the evidence! they don't. let's not forget, schiff is a coward, and suddenly after mueller's disastrous testimony, which was a political stunt all along, pure, raw, ugly smearing smearing, besmirching, slandering, destroying of names and reputations, he knew it all along, he just blocks away from his impeachment dreams. never mind. after telling the country for years he had the evidence, proved to the president was -- he said it again and again. the president was a russian opera. the government was in crisis. he's just content to now to wait forr the 2020 election. just a political game. is this what we get from the people we send to washington? all those fake, phony, selective moral outrage?
tonight, schiff is a very good company. the new leaders of the radical socialist democratic party, known as thedica squad, they aro strangers to feigned moral outrage. they're constantly calling for the president to be impeached. recently congresswoman omar called the president a racist, who wants to deport all black and brown people. that is, of course, a blatant lie. just thist week, we learned it was followed squad member, congress and want to lead couple actually called for the deportation of president trump on twitter, and writing. it turns out the squads fake moral outrage is just as cover-p for their own deep-seated bigotry and extreme radical views that we are now exposing every day, especially when it comes to israel. each member of the squad supports some form of the boycott of israel, a widespread boycott with anti-semitic comments and routes to back it up. as you know by now, ,congresswoman omar has referred to israel as evil, says they've hypnotize the world. she compared the world's only jewish state to the nazi
holocaust, nazi germany. really, you are going to compare israel to mass murdering the nazis in germany? take a look. >> i can't stand by and watch this attack on our freedom of speech and the right to boycott the racist policies if the government and the state of israel. americans of conscience have long and proud history of participating in boycotts, specifically to advocate for human rights abroad. americans boycotted nazi germany in response to dehumanization, imprisonment, and genocide of jewish people. >> sean: israel is not the only target. omar said that americans should be more fearful of white men. wow. don't forget to ocasio-cortez said we are garbage country. take a look. >> our country should be more fearful of white men across our country because they are
actually causing most of of the deaths within this country, and so if the fear was the driving force of policies to keep america safe, americans safe, inside of this country, we should be profiling, monitoring, and creating policies to fight the radicalization of white men. >> sean: white men. in reality, we should be most fearful of the squads radical socialist ideology.id it will destroy this country, very quickly. the new green deal, no oil, gas, the lifeblood of our economy. tlaib wants a $20 minimum wage. $5 higher than bernie. bernie sanders, who was also supporting the green new deal. socialist transformation of america because of how hot it is the summer. cturally, she's calling for your tax cuts to be repealed sos she can give your hard-earned money to the people who really deserve it. this is what she said.
>> said recently i introduced a food tax by this legislation completely repeals the g.o.p.. tax scam that is wholly helping wealthy individuals, the rich, the corporations. and you knowco what i did withot money? do you know what i said? we are going to go ahead and put it into the pockets of folks like everyday americans. that is what we do with our public dollars. we give it back to the people, the people that are in debt. >> sean: take it, steal it, and give it away. just who deserves your hard-earned money? here's an idea. congresswoman omar calling forll taxpayer-funded abortions were illegal immigrants. look closely because these are the leaders of theoc democratic party. now they are the ones that are having the most impact on the 2020 democratic hopefuls. they are the ones, they've gotten everyone of them, to buyo into some version of this insane green newri deal. by the way, at this particular hour, it is not pelosi, she is speaker in name only but you
have congresswoman omar, tlaib, ocasio-cortez, and presley being cheered on by the radical base including the far left crowd in hollywood. anti-trump rest area, on the west coast, they are at a fever pitch.ve many in the film industry becoming literally unraveled. take for example -- remember this guy, worked to pick new cnn -- just said the devil worshipers were better than trump supporter's. then there's brett midler. instead of actually making movies, she spends her days, welcome a rage tweeting the president, like the media, yesterday, when she tried to bash the president, she tweeted out something racist. she posted this picture of a tree and probably with a caption, look at what she says here. "their african-american men and they shot. how much do they pay them to be in the background? "maybe no one told her that we have the best employment situation since 1969 and a record low unemployment, and the history of the country for african-americans, hispanic-americans,
asian-americans, women in the workplace, and youth unemployment. that happened because of donald trump's policies, that did not happen under biden-obama. but midler thinking the african-americans, they can't have differing independent political views? pretty despicable, disgusting, vile and racist, and virtually no one in hollywood is willing toto call her out. shocking. c social justice warriors constantly accusing conservatives, every single two, four years of being racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, islamophobic, wanting to dirty air and water to kill children and throwing granny over the cliff after granny only eats dog food and cat food. i think we know what is going on here and it can be summed up in just three words. fake moral outrage. midler, hollywood friends, they don't care about racism, sexism, xenophobia, or any of this, unless they can bludgeon trump or a political ally of the president, or a conservative. in the end, but midler is just the perfect representation of today's radical left, hates the
president, his supporters, never talked about his success, and she's obsessed, willing to go to any length to smear people, even if that means to eating out what she did. all right, go to, well, joining us now is the president of the united states of america. president trump, sir, thank you for bring back withou us. i don't think -- we do have them, i think. i hope. somebody?70 okay. we'll get that connection. we'll go to trace gallagher, though, he has the latest update on all these matters we are q covering. trace gallagher? >> we talk about the police that keep getting doused and there were three, first brooklyn, harlem, and others a third video of nypd police officers getting doused with buckets of water, this time in the bronx. the video runs about a minute and chose a dozen or so men and women on a street corner where two female police officers are standing watch when traffic passes, the group, carrying
several buckets, starts unloading on police. the officers don't yell at the group or engage in any way. they simply shake themselves off. one police source calls this a disgraceful trend and others say, this is the byproduct of years of antipolice rhetoric from state and local politicians. theol two other videos of police being attacked by water have resulted in three arrests and now because of this video, more may be coming. meantime, check out these urpictures from chicago. this is called community day, and it's organized by the east side chamber of commerce, billed as a day of fun for the kids, that included a pinata, may be looked like an i.c.e. agent. organizers say they did not know about the pinata. play apparently, they did not know about kids throwing balls at an image of president trump. >> sean: unbelievable. wow. trace gallagher, thanks for that are appropriate it is sad what happens to the cops. the president of united states, president trump, always a
pleasure to have you. i'm i guess we had a phone problem on our ants. i apologize on behalf of the entire fox news channel. >> president trump: don't worry about it. thank you, very much. >> sean: mr. president, i will g just open it up to you to go wherever you want with this. this is something you had to deal with your entire presidency almost. you were loud and saying it is not true, y it was a witch hunt, and we had four separate investigations backing up your claim, and culminating in what you saw yesterday. your reaction to all that? >> president trump: i think people learned a lot yesterday watching a very poor performance and watching things that they could not believe when they saw what was going on, and hopefully we are going to be able to find out how a thing like this started. it was a disgrace to our country, a disgrace from every standpoint, and i would say that most people have never seen anything like it. on top of it, you watch a performance, was shocking.
very sad. >> sean: how much of that did you watch, sir? >> president trump: say it, sean? >> sean: how much of the mueller testimony did you actually watch? >> president trump: so i wasn't going too watch at all, and then i started thinking about it, and then i watched a little bit at the very beginning and i could not believe what i was saying. i ended up watching more than i wanted to. and then i watched the afternoon because, you know, it was such a big crater at the beginning, and i said, now i have to watch -- i have to watch shifty schiff because he just went through three hours and now he has to go through schiff and i said, this is going to be very interesting. i've never seen anything like it, actually. i could not watch it all, i had meetings, i had economic development meetings, i was saying, fellas, maybe we could move it to another time but i didn't want to do it. i got to watch enough and it was shocking. i thought the republicans represented themselves brilliantly, actually.
john ratcliffe and jim jordan -- i mean, all of them. louie gohmert. i could mention 15 names or however many they have that spoke. it got fairly close to that number, i guess, maybe it was a little bit less than that. i will tell you that everybody representing the republicans i thought was really good and i thought the other side was typically biased. but they were stuck with a situation that they could notk believe. >> sean: mr. president, i just mentioned, "the new york times," not long ago, actually said that they believe that -- will come of the dossier which i was stunned mueller did not know about fusion gps, the things he did not know shock to me, did nt know jeannie rhee, clint's attorney, work for him, but we'll put that aside.he they suggested, n "the new york times," that the dirty dossier that had repaid for that was used to spy on your campaign, your transition, and even your presidency, sir, most likely disinformation from the
beginning. now if that's the case, that would mean that the russiansus know that hillary was paying for those lies, which would mean that the narrative that the american people have been fed by the media and the democrats, that, well, they were trying to help you, the russians, that would mean, if "the new york times" is right for once -- and iti suspect they may very well be -- that they were trying to hurt you more than hillary. >> president trump: well, based on the fact that we have just become, fairly recently, a little while ago, the number one oil and gas producer and energy producer in the world, by far, russia, saudi arabia are now second and third, based on the fact that we now have the best -- we will soon have the most modern military we have ever had, with the best equipment, the newest planes, and all other things that we've done, and so many other things, sean, based on all of that, the last person they should want t s
me. but i have heard the same thing about the fake dossier. i've heard it came out of russia. i think a lot of it also wasad made on. it was just made up like he would write a novel, but it was a fake, and it was paid for by the democrats and paid for by hillary clinton and the dnc and it's incredible. these are incredible -- nobody would write ano novel like this because people wouldn't believe ldit. it would not be believable. >> sean: you know, mr. president, i famously have asked lindsey graham. he really -- when attorney general barr was before his committee, he went through a list of things? do you feel that mueller had every opportunity? you turn over one and a half millionn documents. i can't believe, you encourage everyone to testify before congress, before the special counsel, i was shocked donald mcgahn did but we'll put that aside here. and you keep saying that you think we can't let this happen again. and i guess we've learned from
the attorney general thatfr he's going to look into whether the investigation into hillary's server was rigged, he's going to look into potential fisa abuse, he's going to look into the origins of this probe. we know that durham has interviewed steele for nearly 16 hours, we know the ig is very close to a fisapf report. what do you -- why is it important to get to the bottom of this, from your perspective? >> president trump: because this should never happen to another president of the united states again.. this is a absolute catastrophe for our country. this was a fake witch hunt and it should never be allowed to happen to another president again. this was treason. this was high crimes. this was everything, as bad a w definition as you want to come up with, they should never be allowedwe to happen to our couny again. >> sean: your thoughts, you've often said fake news. i call them out often on this program. it turns out -- i give a lift,
starting with richard jewell, ferguson, missouri,wi cambridge police, baltimore, maryland, command uva and duke nicholas sandmann, but they wey single lie, every conspiracy theory, i don't see the media very often talking about the things you have accomplished. i mentioned to the employmentat situation is the best since 1969. what do you say to the press in this country? the press that is supposed to be fair, balanced, objective, down the metal? i'm a talk show host. i am like the whole newspaper. we do everything. >> president trump: i think the press has lost all credibility. much of it. it's lost a big part of it, a veryry substantial part of it lt all credibility. and i watch as people scream out these poor democrats come with, scream like i've never seen. you must do this, you mustst do that, these are supposed to be journalists, talk show hosts,
all sorts of people. i cannot believe it. they are actually trying to force them to do what they want to be done. i've never seen anything like it. and i've seen it -- you know, they use the word "unhinged," theyed are unhinged. the media has become totally unhinged. they are very dishonest. when i say enemy of the people, when people give purposely false stories and when they try and get politicians to do things that are wrong and they know they are wrong, that really is the enemy of the people. it's fake news but it's the enemy of the people more importantly. words, ifn other you are claiming to be fair, balanced, objective, and down the middle, and you purposely lie and don't have any interest in the truth, you make a distinction between the two and i heard you say that many times. i'm interested in this question because were very critical of mueller, the whole issue of whether or not you told your counsel to fire him. you have the authority, according to alan dershowitz,
many constitutional attorneys i've interviewed, under article two, for conflicts of interest, you could have fired mueller yourself. my question is, now that you saw how little he actually knew, do you have a different opinion of him? did you come at any point, almost feel sorry for him during this? e president trump: so i had the absolute right to fire him but i didn't. and i never suggested to do it. but i had the absolute right to fire him under article two and perhaps for other reasons. but i didn't do it. i didn't do any -- you know, when he said he was going to do this or said he was going to -- i didn't do any of it. and it's really incredible when i hear this. you know, the whole concept of obstruction, first of all, they create a phony crime, which was just a terrible thing to say about somebody. especially somebody that lovesy the country as much as i do. so they create thiss phony crime and then they say he obstructed. they said there was no collusion but he obstructed.
and there has never been anything like this ever before in our country. this crime was -- the crime wase committed on the other side. and we'll find out about that. we have a great attorney general who is looking at it. i'm not involved or not. he's looking at it. and, you know, i've been hearing a lot of the media actuallyia talking about investigate the investigators, and a lot more than that. and i think that things are -- i just see it. i feel it. i think a lot of good is going to come out of it. we went through hell. a lot of people went through hell. they came down to washington wanted to do a phenomenal job for the people and they getpa served with papers two, testify and go before a grand jury sprayed by the way, nothing affected the trump organization. all of these things like the russian bloggers, they had nothing to do with us. everybody knew it. in fact, there's a little sentence in there saying it had
nothing to do with the trump administration but it was, like, a lot of people. 24 people or something. a lot of bloggers, bloggers in russia, they'll never see these people, they know that. they sent out papers to these people, they'll never see them. the people probably never got the papers. but all of these people, none of them -- they went through people with old tax cases, old cases, cases that were not even going forward, and, you know, went after them viciously, and violently. general flynn, who was a good man, what they did to general flynn, and so many others, hope hicks, this wonderful young woman, and she spent much of her time in washington fighting off, you know, horrible stories and things and she is just a high quality person. so many -- i mean, i could name almost everybody. what they went through, and still, to this day, i mean, i
heard people saying that -- i heard some of the media say that they thought of mueller performed okay, in other words, they let a day go by, and then they'll try and spin it. these are very dishonest people. these are very bad people. >> sean: mr. president, the power of the pardon -- i actually think the best pardon you gave was alice marie johnson. i think you can much of her sentence, to be more accurate, s absolute. can have you, at any point, considered in the back of your mind, a pardon for any of the people you mentioned? or you would wait? i think you said at one point he would not consider it until after it all went through. >> president trump: i don't want to comment on that as far as the pardons are concerned. yes, it is absolute, and it's a beautiful thing. i've had people, jack johnson come with a heavy weight champion of the world in the early 1900s, he went to jail for no reason. so many other things, and alice
johnson is another good example. and i really feel good about giving it, where people have been treated unfairly and abused, actually. but i haven't talked about it with respect to what is going on now. ii mean, it is -- i think theres a whole new day starting. i used to use, and i still use "drain the swamp." we have some very, very bad people and government that would be willing to do very bad things and for bad reasons. so i don't mention pardons, but, you know, i don't say what is going to happen in the future. i don't comment on it. >> sean: mr. president, last question on this, and i want to switch to 2020 if i may. comey, mccabe, comey signed the first fisa warrant, which opened the door, apparently, according to nunes and the grassley-graham memo, the bulk
of information was hillary's bought andnd paid for dirty russian dossier, and we found out from john solomon, they had a spreadsheet, even the fbi said this was false, garbage, not true. comey signed it. that allowed a backdoor to sign on your company and, later transition, and then presidency. mccabe, strzok, paige, brennan,e, clapper, be sourcing out what would be a legal intelligence gathering. and we know the attorney general's there. is there any ofe. these names -- what do you think these people? because james comey signed the first fisa application in october 2016, went to trump tower in january 2017 and told you it's unverified, months earlier, he swore on that application, the fisa application, that it's verified, so he lied. what are your thoughts about these people today? >> president trump: well, comey is a liar and a leaker. and that's obvious. all you have to do is justs
follow him a long and see what he said to a congress. clapper and brennan and all of these people, mccabe, these aree bad people. my opinion, they are very bad people. they've been very bad for the country. i useded to think they were incompetent but they are really, i guess, competent at other things and may be bad things. we'll see what happens. i guess a lot of things are coming out. it's going to be very interesting, and it will be great to clean up a real big mess because again, it can never happen. this can never be allowed to happen again, sean. >> sean: mr. president, you sihave the power to literally release the fisa applications and the 302s and the gang of eight information, and you made a decision to hand it over to the attorney general. let him decide. i'm curious as to why.. >> president trump: well, we have a very respected gentleman,
and a high quality person named william barr, and he is doing -- i can tell you, he's working so hard. and rather than just doing a total release, i gave him a total release. in other words, he's got everything. anything he needs, he's got. he is the attorney general of the united states. he's got a lot of very good people under him that, i guess, are involved, and i gave them a total release. so all ofm it has been release, and he has all of it. i've also given him authorization to release it to whoever he wants, whether it is his people or, frankly, perhaps people like devin nunes, who is a star, what he's done, and the amount of suffering he's gone through. you know what they did with him where they tried to drive him right out of politics and probably worse than that. he's done an incredible job. and so many others. i mean, the job, they are warriors. we've had -- i will tell you the good side of all y this is the
level of intelligence and strength and goodness thatel wee had on the republican party, a lot of them. not everybody, of course. but we've had tremendous -- and when i say we come i'm talking about the country. the country has had tremendous support from meadows and jordan and devin nunes and so many of the names that you saw yesterday perform so well. i mean, they performed so well, and they worked so hard because they saw this was a scam, this was an illegal takeover, as he would say in the business world. i mean, this was a coup attempt in my opinion. this is the united states. we wouldn't stand for it. i wouldn't stand for it. we have some very great people but we also have some very bad people. and i think we caught them. >> sean: i believe, sir, we
have the premier law enforcement agency in the world, our fbi. we of the premier intelligence people in the world but that is 99%. but the 1% at the top are the ones we are talking about abusing power. all right, so how closely are you paying attention to the 2020 democrats? by the way, they seem most influenced by the squad and all of them having even adopted some version of the insane new green deal that would get rid of the lifeblood of our economy, oil, gas, and planes and cows on the combustion engine. >> president trump: you know, it's very interesting because i have not seen it at all for the last four or five days. f they are not talking about the democrats. a they are talking about mueller and how bad he performed, how badly he performed. they are talking about everything that happened over the last fewew days but in particular, yesterday, you are not saying much about the democrats. but look, you've got a few of them that are doing a little bit better than others. it'll be interesting. whoever it is, i'm okay with it. we have the best account numbery
we've ever had. we have the best stock market numbers. if you look at 401(k)s, if you look at the kind of money that people are making -- i'm not talking about rich people or just rich people. i'm talking about everybody. blue-collar workers more proportionally than anybody, you saw that poll that just came out. things are going great. the best unemployment numbers, the best employment numbers. i will tell you about, more people working in the united states, today, that at any point in the history of our country. and then we have the lowest unemployment numbers, especially for african-americans, for hispanics, for asians, women are almost 70 years the best numbers, and soon to be historic, meaning forever, meaning from the beginning. no, i think we are going to be in great shape. then you have aoc, i call it aoc plus three, the three hangers on.
and i really believe they are going to hurt the democrats. but who knows. i mean, we'll see. but i think we are going to do ocry well, sean. i think we'll do very well. we have tremendous spirit. you've never seen the fec can we go to the massive arenas, they are packed and there are thousands of people you've never seen an empty seat. we will w do very well. >> sean: three quick questions and i'm going to let you go because you've been very generous with your time. who do you think wins, and will you tell us, and is there one of the group of democratic hopefuls that you hope wins because you know you can beat them easily? >> president trump: you know, i could say that obviously the top three or four look like they are doing better than the rest, so sleepy joe is okay but he is fading. i think he's fading fast. the only good thing about mueller as it may joe biden look like a dynamo. >> sean: [laughs] >> president trump: when you watch mueller's performance, i think probably biden is the one. so you have him, and he is sort
of a little bit leading, then you have a whole group. you have elizabeth warren, formerly known as pocahontas, and i'm sure that will come out because that is a tough thing for her to withstand, i believe, because her whole life was a fake.fa she usede that very, very adepty and it was not good. you have harris and bernie looks like he is fading. to make him a bernie looks like he missed his time. you know what hillary did a few years ago was pretty tough, frankly, for bernie. but that was his time. i don't think it is bernie's time. i see him flailing. he's flailing all over the place, he ishe going crazy. i call him crazy bernie. but the fact is that i think those would be probably the three or four, maybe there is another one or two. you know, i don't necessarily see anybody else gaining traction. >> sean: mr. president, last two questions. first one isti on both iran and
north korea have recently fired test missiles. here's my question for you. i think -- i've known you for nearly 25 years. i know your mind-set on this very well. i set it onth the air in a messe to the mullahs that they better be careful. you will not put boots on the ground. you will probably show some level of patients, but at the end of the day, if they force you, i believe, knowing you, knowing my belief is you will devastate them. i north korea, you've given them nothing, people have criticizeds about donald trump, you'll put no boots on the ground, you will never try and bribe a dictator, like clinton did with north korea and biden-obama did with the mullahs, and i do believe that if pushed, the military might he would unleash would be mighty and it won't require boots on the ground. am i right? >> president trump: well, i: think that in the case of iran, i know that better than you do and stronger than you started.
i think they understand they very well. i think of a case of north korea, i am actually very well along with him. sanctions are on, the hostages are back, we are getting the remains back, they have not been nuclear testing. they really haven't tested missiles otherer than, you know, smaller ones. which is something that lots test. i think with north korea, we'vek been doing very well. that doesn't t mean it's going o continue. we have a relationship, president obama had no. relationship. we would have been at war. hillary clinton won this election, we'd be at war with north korea. i have no doubt about that. that is where it was heading. it was heading there very rapidly. so we'll see what happens. but i think that what you said might be somewhat of an understatement. >> sean: last question, mr. president. i have said many times in this program, all you have given kim jong unkr your time. we've got remains back, hostages
back, and missile stopped up until fairly recently, and you just gave time. let me ask -- this is may be -- maybe it's because it's new york and i know a city that you obviously love a lot, and you've seen and you've watched with us these police officers being pounded with water, and not reacting. to me, if this continues, that is a disastrous situation for the people of new york city. >> president trump: well, it's a bad mayor, probably the worst mayor in the history of new york city. he'sor done a bad job and now hs running for president and people can't even believe it. he's a horrible mayor. the policeman and woman just cannot stand him. they don't respect him, they don't like him, remember, they turned their back on him a couple of years ago when he got up to speak, everybody turned their back and they kept it that way and still, they want to do it but they still have respect for the office, if not him. i thought that was tragic, watching that scene.
a couple of days ago when i first saw it, i could not believe it. i said, let me see you that s again, i don't believe what i'm seeing. and i know new york's finest and new york's finest, in fact, we were in touch with them today, they are devastated thought, frankly, that could happen, and also thato there was two offices would allow that to happen. there was a terrible thing. >> sean: every single one that we have on video, i would like to see arrested. mr. president, it won't take anymore of your time. thank you so much for being with us. as always, we really appreciate it. >> president trump: thank you, sean, thank you very much. >> sean: here and how his reaction, fox news contributor, our friend come off dan bongino and fox news correspondent at large geraldo rivera. geraldo, you always say something -- we fight. we have some real knockdown, drag outs at times. but you say something that i always appreciate about you, and that's, you want our president to succeed. you saw what happened yesterday.
you saw what's gone on the last two and a half years. you just heard the president react to it. i don't think any of i that was good for the country, and i think if we don't get to the bottom of those, we are going to have a lot ofhi problems in the future. >> we get one president at a time, sean, and his success is etthe nation's success. on the miracle is, this administration has been so successful in terms of unemployment, andms these other trade deals and north koreaea ad so forth, given the fact that every day he went to work, knowing that the justicent department, his own fbi, was ngcrawling all over him, turning people, informants, wiretapping, stooges, inciting people, they were trying everything they could, and what you call this failed coup attempt. and yet, he stayed relatively measured, he stayed focused as president. the gravest shadow on his presidency has been revealed to be smoke and mirrors and i thought the miracle of the deal
really is something very, very significant, the fact that he could keep it all together, knowing that he had enemies on all side. people that were going to knife him in the back, people trying to overthrow his presidency, people trying to turn some of his closest associates against him. i think it was -- he's been brilliance and he was totally vindicated yesterday without halting, hesitant testimony from frail, fragile robert mueller, who made me feel very old watching it, sean. >> sean: by the way, geraldo is about to celebrate 50 years on the air, and everything from what -- the investigative reporting that you have done, you, single-handedly, changed how we treat those that are in need and that tape will make cry today, to the geraldo show, to --
o>> enough about me. [laughter] >> sean: dan bongino, let's get your general reaction to the president's remarks. we covered a lot of territory, spent a lot of time on yesterday's events. >> sean, you asked a very isportant question to the president. his answer was very telling. what was the role of the media of all of this, the collusion hoax? for you and i, and geraldo, john solomon, sara carter, others, this case was obviously a hoax from the start. if the media would have respected their oath and had any journalistic integrity, it would have been obvious. i give you a quick example. real clear investigations that report in the footnotes in the mueller report. this is fascinating. a footnote, one of the ways they kind of knocked the integrity of the trump team, and attached it to the russians, one of the footnotes says that a guy told the guy that trump was thinking about stopping by a chess tournament in new york were a russian guy was there. folks, you can read that in the mueller report. i'm not making this up.
that was on the mueller report, that ar dude told another dude that trump may stop by a chess tournament and there was a russian guy there. this is what they did in the mueller report. the examples are everywhere. one more quick link come where were the media reports that christopher steele already indicated to the state department that two sources for his dossier were two russians? have you heard anything about this? >> sean: let me ask you very quickly, does not that -- if "the new york times" is right, and this was russian disinformation from the beginning, and they knew that hillary was paying for it, wouldn't that take away the whole narrative that russia was trying to help trump?ru it would mean they were trying to help hillary. geraldo? >> of course it was. only one campaign polluted. hillary's. >> sean: all right, guys. >> accusing the president of the united states of being a traitor, committing treason against his own country, they sought to say on television that the president was knifing the republicans and the back.
it was so sick. it should be exposed. everyone should be exposed. >> sean: i'm doing a 50 year retrospective on geraldo coming up. we have a lot more 5 to get to.w media's credibility, huge nose dive. will they ever get out of that? next. ♪ i have a vision correction number, but i'm more than a number. when i'm not teaching, i'm taking steep grades and tight corners. my essilor lenses offer more than vision correction with three innovative technologies for my ultimate in vision, clarity and protection... together in a single lens:

♪ >> sean: the media's credibility, i mean, all across the fake, phony news media, the media mob, the rage trump psychotic media mob, they took a huge hit yesterday. joining us now, columnist jeffrey lord along with the greater new york radio host, my affiliate player, joe concha, fox news contributor, sara carter. i used to watch on these panels on fake news or cnn, jeff lord, and it was you, 20 other people, you, and ten other people, usually some combination thereof
or poor kayleigh mcenany and 20 of the other side. but i don't think they can get it back. i think they lost it. the president has so -- he's so awake into this s public to who they are, their agenda, there phony reporting, i don't think they can get it back. >> i don't think they can either, sean. what it means to me -- what amazes me, it never seems to occur to them that it never realized that it was hurting their credibility. their ratings would drop by drop and drawer. one of the amusing things, rachel maddow says she wants w o get the staff behind the mueller report out there to talk about it. sean, there's not enough popcorn for me to get to see andrew weissmann sit across from you on the show for an hour and answer your questions. as the rest of the media going to be doing this? i don't think so. >> sean: they've got a lot of
explaining to do. you know, sara, we consciously all -- we talked a lot, john, gregg -- i can't imagine -- joe, i can't imagine everyone. i will miss people. about getting it right, about doing it our way, about having the standards of sourcing down pat before anyone went with a story. and we've been right all along and proven right all along. we have a history on the show of doingto that. i mentioned earlier, richard jewell, nicholas sandmann, ferguson, duke lacrosse, they always get it wrong. how? >> that's right, sean. they just brought the spiel that was being given to them by john brennan, by james comey, by clapper, by andrew mccabe and others within the fbi, all of those leaks. this is what people have to realize. you are right, sean, we would go the extra mile to find three, four sources, five --
>> sean: we had a story on a monday, we wouldn'tfi release it until threee days later. >> you are absolutely right. you are absolutely right. we would not do that. >> sean: we did a lot, we held back stories we knew for a long time. >> that's right. >> i keep going back to this study that happened not too long though. 72% of americans believe "traditional major news sources report the news know to be fake, false, or purposely misleading." three quarters of the country believe the news media does that that, that is largely because of the reporting we saw around russia and collusion that did not happen. we saw a robert mueller yesterday, that is the final chapter in this sordid tale. >> sean: i apologize, i'm a bad host from a bad time management. we'll continue. ♪ pain receptors for effective, non-addictive relief. salonpas lidocaine. patch, roll-on or cream. hisamitsu.
