>> megyn's new booking with settle for more, a in, times best seller now. can you get it on-line and in stores. get your copy of more of the wisdom she spoke there. thanks for watching tonight, everybody. i'm martha mccallum. see you at 9:00 in the morning with bill hammer. see you later. tonight, president-elect donald trump meets with washington political elites, but should be very careful. newt gingrich will react. >> is he still under consideration? >> yes, he is. >> does he have a chance to become secretary of state? >> yes, he does. >> and the president-elect says mitt romney is considered for secretary of state. trump transition member david fossy will naweigh in. and "time" magazine names donald trump as person of the year. >> when you say divided states of america. i didn't divide them. they are divided now. >> all of that plus sheriff
david clarke, judge janine shapiro. hannity starts right now. newt gingrich will be here in just a minute. but first the people of washington, d.c. and political elites, they are not president-elect donald trump's friends and they never will be. and that's tonight's eeping monologue. now donald trump has been meeting with the likes of mitt romney, chicago mayor, emmanuel, al gore, my vice to the president-elect tonight is be very careful. he considers romney for secretary of state. he should remember all of the vicious and nasty and horrible things that he said about him on the campaign trail. if we republicans choose romney, the prosperous future are greatly diminished. donald trump tells us he is very, very smart.
i'm afraid that when it comes to foreign policy, he is very, very not smart. dishonesty is donald trump's hall mark. think of donald trump's personal qualities. the bullying. the greed. the showing off. the massage any. the absurd third grade theatrics. here's what i know. donald trump is a phony, fraud. his promises are as worthless as the degree from trump university. >> pretty vicious. do you really want him in your cabinet? this the dead fish emmanuel mayor of chicago. he has ties to the clintons. he was at trump tower earlier today playing night but recently emmanuel said he will pose donald trump on sanctuary cities. take a look. >> to be clear, about what chicago is, it always will be a sanctuary city. now administrations may change. but our values and principles as
it relates it inclusion does not. >> that of course you have global warming alarmist former vice president al gore he was at trump tower earlier this week however we have to remember the campaign attacks that came from the former vice president and all the crazy stuff he said. like watch this. >> hillary clinton will make solving the climate crisis a top national priority. her owpponent based on the idea that he has presented would take us toward a climate catastrophe. we face a genuine planetary emergency. we cannot just talk about it. we have to act on it. the planet has a fever. it your baby has a fever, you go to the doctor. if the doctor says you need to intervene here, you don't say, well, i read a science fiction novel that tells me it's not a problem. they are in favor of affirmative action if you can dunk the basketball or sink a three-point
shot. but they're not in favor of it if you merely have the potential to be a leader in your community and bring people together. don't tell me we've got a color mind society. >> of course republicans are racists as global warming fear mongering. there is also president obama. early this morning on the today show donald trump talked about his relationship with the current commander-in-chief. listen to this. >> i've now gotten to know president obama. i really like him. we have, i think i can say at least for myself, i can't speak for him, but we have a really good chemistry together. we talk. he loves the country. he wants to do right by the country. and for the country. and i will tell you, we obviously very much disagree on certain policies and certain things, but you know, i really like him as a person. >> president obama's been one of the worst presidents in american
history. that's fact. the president-elect is taking the high road here and probably he should to bring the country together. but to me it is pretty obvious that president obama is putting on a front in front of the country. henry is reporting that the president is planning a farewell tour in january with major speefrps in up to three cities. likely goal undermine donald trump before the inauguration and of course to try and alter the political narrative. now as we've said before, there's no way the president obama will follow in president a george w. bush's foot steps. out of respect to the office not criticize the next commander-in-chief. president obama is a divisive radical left wing ideal og. always has been and always will be. you might remember this. >> this is money who spent 70 years on this earth showing no respect for working people. this is someone who vilifies minorities. vilifies immigrants.
vilifies people of muslim faith. if you disrespect women before you are elected president, you will disrespect women when you're in office. if you accept the support of klan sympathizers. the klan. and hesitate when asked about that support. then you will tolerate that support when you're in office. >> and finally there's the republican leadership in washington, d.c. now i'm glad to see that late in the game they are finally coming around and supporting donald trump. i'm on old yaeng greagan guy an thisty is wor think it is worth remembering his line, trust but rib. remember. washington might seem as a nice place but as trump said, it is a swamp. as soon as thing get a little bit tough, these people, new-found friends, political
class, they will turn on him on a dime. so if the president-elect, if he want any real friends in washington, i heard he just got a dog called patton. if he wants two friend, get two dawgs. author of best selling book treason former speaker of the house newt gingrich. anything you disagree with there? >> i don't know. look. >> you're laughing. go ahead, take your shot. take it. >> no, no. it's an shot. i think first of all you did a very good job of putting together a montage that shows that these guys were all deeply anti-trump. which is i think a useful reminder. i wish he had said for example to rom emmanuel, so what's your plan for saving lives in chicago. over 4,000 people shot in chicago over 700 killed. emanuel recently pledged $1 million help illegals fight
against detoportation. it would be nice if he spend that $1 million in south side chicago saving lives. the other thing the president-elect could talk to these guys about that might be useful. but i think part of this, you're right. this is a bring the country together, i'm president of the whole country. i think that's fine. and i think it is just as you were pointing out really important to distinguish between courtesy and cooperation. every major thing president-elect trump wants to achieve, these people are going to oppose. and he needs to understand that. and if he want it get these things done, he is going to be prepare fed fight many of the people that he is currently making nice with. >> well, congressman floeres was talking about paul ryan's agenda. what he suggested is let's dot things we all agree on first and those controversial things like the wall, and immigration and maybe vetting refugees and maybe
some of the harder parts of trump's agenda, i got the impression, we will work that out later means, that's washington speak for, you get the tax increase but you never get the spending cut. you get the amnesty but you never get the wall. i almost think they are trying to set trump up to only go along with their agenda and not his. >> of course they are. remember when george w. bush first came to town. discovered he had a friend in teddy kennedy and they were going to write an education bill together. and they created a more monstrous democracy? that's what kennedy wanted. these are smart people. they believe in big government. they believe in radical left values. they believe in controlling your life through bureaucrats. if that's what he is willing to do, they will love him. if he remains the donald trump we see on the road, talking to people, these huge crowds that continue to turn out, that donald trump is going to be taking these guys head on
because he stands for a dramatically different america than they do. and i think we just have to keep reminding ourselves. and he's got to remind people that that's the case. this is a -- but what i've seen so far, things i read, things i talk to, transition team about, they are moving in the direction of a very trumpy world. they are not moving in the direction of a chuck schumer rom emanuel al gore kind of world. >> mitt romney? >> romney is somebody you and i both oppose. i've watched the president-elect. he has expanded the number of people he is looking at. he has a very serious approach to finding the right secretary of state. if he ends up picking romney, i will support him. i think the president-elect is allowed to have the candidate that he thinks will help him best. but given the people he is
interviewing and the range of people he brought in, i don't get a sense he is rushing to pick mitt romney. i get the sense he has alternatives. and i think he has one or two first-rate people that would be dramatically better. and i like the fact that he is being disciplined and calm and doing it in a very serious way. >> all right. now do you have an official role with president-elect trump? >> i'm part of the transition if that counts. >> i meant for when he becomes president on january 20th. and you knew exactly what i meant when you answered that. >> no, i didn't. >> yes, you did. i've known you since 1990. >> my goal is to be the chief strategist putting together what trump means -- the principles of trumpism and helping people from state lejs lay you're egislatur governor and the executive branch and all moving in the
same direction with the goal of literally creating a new stable republican governing majority for the first time since 1932. and i've talked to the president-elect and vice president-elect and the senior team on the transition. they all seem comfortable with that role for me. i will intend to continue doing that. that is something in the reagan years -- >> i think that's the perfect role for you. could you transform every agency in government, every branch in government if a profound way, which bit way every single one of them needs. we will have more with the former speaker, newt gingrich. according to this, mitt romney is in the running for secretary of state but the list of candidates continues to grow. deputy executive director of the trump transition team, david bossy will check in and he will weigh in on the process. and later tonight -- >> there is a profound argument about whether his influence was for the better or worse. that is the challenge that faces
good evening and live from america's news headquarters i'm jackie ibanez in new york. the recount in michigan, third county candidate jill stein pushed for recounts in three states where president-elect trump had a narrow win over hillary clinton. since stein only got 1% of the vote a recount would not increase her chances at winning the election. authorities charging two juveniles in a deadly fire in
tennessee now face aggravated arson charges for a fire that started november 23 and spread to the gatlinburg area. the fire is blamed for killing 14 people and damaged more than 1700 buildings. authorities say more charges could be filed. that's also possible the case could be move need adult court. i'm jackie ibanez. now back to "hannity." the man is first of all a malignant narcissus and only about himself, folks. you're about to see that happen. >> i hate to say this -- >> i could say the same thing about hillary clinton. >> i can say, i hate to be the one to say this, it makes me feel very odd, but he's not an idiot, he's got to get re-elected by these guys, can't you give him a chance at least on the stuff you agree with him on? >> i can't imagine he is thinking about reelection.
i can't imagine he is thinking, i got to do this for four years? not fair. majority of americans, say it again, wanted hillary clinton. majority of americans did not want donald trump. it is the responsibility of this minority of democrats in congress -- >> hold on. . >> obstruct and do whatever they can to prevent the onslaught that is going to happen with donald trump. >> he will be inaugurated on january 20 and january 21, a saturday, don't be surprised if the republicans call saturday session of congress and pass law after law after law and have him sign it the next day and it'll be one piece of suffering against people after another. and it is the job of the democrats now to stop the suffering that he is about to create for the american people. >> actually, the suffering happened under obama with 13 million more americans on food stamps. 8 million more in poverty. lowest labor participation since the '70s. lowest homeownership in 51
years. michael, wake up. liberal michael moore trashing president-elect donald trump. i watch cnn and there's mr. white lash himself van jones interviewing michael moore. is that any indication why cnn has very few viewers on any given night now? >> i think it is fair to say they started on the left and went to the left. >> yeah. >> and they are now so far out to the left that actually they may make an intersection with mars or venus at some point in the next year or two. you have to relax and accept, as you've heard me talk about, the great essay on intellectual yet idiot. i think that you are seeing a lot of people who are pseudo intellectuals, who, you know, went to a good school and learned nothing. and then get on tv and prove they've learned nothing. and you would think that the left, i saw nancy pelosi say, oh, we really don't have to change. let me see. you know, you lost thousands of state legislators.
you've lost governors, you've lost the senate and the house and you just lof tst the presidency. do you think there might be a signal that your customers aren't happy. she didn't think so. it didn't penetrate. >> that shows how in touch she is and she dederserves that position. so harvard did a study and this pro for professor is tommies homas e. p. he pointed out that the the ratio was 10-1 negative coverage or positive and pointed out that overall in the general election 77% of donald trump's coverage was negative. i said in 2008 will, journalism is dead. is that enough evidence to prove ways right? >> and if you add to that the
degree to which the overchemmingoverchem whe overwhelmingly 8 will o6% donat hillary clinton. i think they have so totally devalued their brand that we are a lot better off to not be surprised. they are not news any more. they are propaganda. i just got a thing which i find hard to believe, that one of the newspapers actually published an old picture of dem on stralonst baltimore claiming in was south carolina. the picture was baltimore, not even charlston. but they decided they wanted to run the story so they just picked the picture that fit the story even though it was totally false. >> so when they are talking about fools nealse news, they a talking about themselves. >> i have to tell you, you've been right, the idea of new york times worrying about fake news is really weird. i mean, this is, you know, the "new york times" is fake news.
and it doesn't change because all of the copy editors are there that have been there for 20 years. they are as far left as they can get without teaching at harvard. it is unbelievable how far left the "new york times" has gone. >> unbelievable. mr. speaker, you've been great. first hundred days will be amazing. i know you'll be on more and we look forward to it. coming up next -- >> i have spoken to him a lot. we've come a long way together. we have some tremendous difficulty together. now i think we have come a long way. but the answer is, yes, he does. >> president-elect trump says mitt romney is still considered for secretary of state as he works to fill key administration roles. david bossy from the trump transition team is here with more. that's next. later, "time" magazine names donald trump person of the year but also take a cheap shot at the president-elect. ainsley earhardt and taya kyle will be here with a reaction.
tonight on this busy news night here on "hannity." t well. before those little pieces would get in between my dentures and my gum and it was uncomfortable. even well fitting dentures let in food particles. just a few dabs of super poligrip free is clinically proven to seal out more food particles so you're more comfortable and confident while you eat. so it's not about keeping my dentures in, it's about keeping the food particles out. try super poligrip free. we have your fingerprints soon the safe., a photo of you opening the safe. a post using the hashtag "#justrobbedthesafe" so, what are we supposed to think? switching to geico could save you a bunch of money on car insurance. excellent point. case dismissed. geico. because saving fifteen percent or more on car insurance woo! because saving fifteen percent or more on car insurance is always a great answer.
afoot and light-hearted i take to the open road. healthy, free, the world before me, the long brown path before me leading wherever i choose. the east and the west are mine. the north and the south are mine. all seems beautiful to me. but...my doctor recommended prilosec otc 7 years ago, 5 years ago, last week. just 1 pill each morning. 24 hours and zero heartburn, it's been the number 1 doctor recommended brand for 10 straight years, and it's still recommended today. use as directed
transition team, dave bossy. how are you doing. >> very well. >> you don't have a position yet. when do you get your position? >> i don't know. you will have to talk to president-elect about that. >> you played a big part in the campaign i suspect you are going to washington with him and you and bannan work well together. we've all been friend for years. let me give the president-elect more credit for being more gracious than i would be. more magnanimous than i would be. i'm getting worried. to me, romney called him a racist, massaisogynistic, unfit office, fraud, huckster, is not the kind of guy i would think would be loyal when things hit the fan and you and i have been around too long to know the moment are coming to people that were loyal to him during the campaign will be the people that will be best and loyal during cuff times. and tough times are coming. >> well, look, we will have
tough time in the white house. president-elect trump then when he becomes president trump will obviously be challenged when it comes to our economy and you know, across the world as he engages all of the problems that we have today. look, i believe that what president-elect trump has done is an incredibly deliberative process. he is really cast a wide net. he has talked to a lot of different people about the secretary of state's job and you know, if he feels that mitt romney is the right man at the right time for this job, then i don't know that i -- >> what experience does he have to be secretary of state? like rudy giuliani is traveling the world. newt gingrich is traveling the world. >> and mitt romney is not somebody who lived under a rock. he is somebody who is well experienced with negotiations, well versed, and has traveled himself around the world. i'm not that worried about that. i think that the president-elect will make the right decision for
him. >> he ran, he got elected. i didn't run. i didn't get elected. not my call. i understand. >> i guess the biggest percentage of calls to my radio show, and a lot of people are listening, and why is he meeting with al gore? why does he say he is friend with obama? why is he meeting with mitt romney? why is he meeting with some of the other people that he's been meeting with? >> look -- >> rahm emanuel, dead fish. he knows they are not his friends? he understands that? >> the president-elect is not -- >> he's smart. >> he is incredibly smart. he understands that what these folks are about. but he also is somebody who is trying to show america that he wants to be president of all of the people. something that he -- >> okay, i can accept that. that's smart. >> having these meetings is incredibly smart to show the american people he will take guidance and advice.
whether or not he take the advice and adheres to the advice, he will at least listen from a lot of wide ranging voices and i think that those are some of them. >> to me, it is all about the agenda. there's no point in winning an election if you're not going to advance the agenda. the agenda is simple. extreme vetting. corporate tax 15%. rep repay triation. health care independence. education back to the state. building the wall. if he does those things, he will have a successful presidency. i heard him reiterate those points last night so i have confidence the agenda is the same. and i love the generals that he pointed. will that agenda change or do you think the people he is talking to will have a negative influence on him? >> the president-elect has in his mind what his agenda is. he ran on it. he understands it.
he believes in it. >> he has been repeating it. >> without question. everyday since the election and for a year before. so no one needs to tell him really what his agenda is. and i think that is what we have to count on. that the people that he is bringing together. his cabinet, the generals, and steve and wilbur and other talented people. ben carson is going to really allow him to get that agenda forwarded for the her can people. >> to me, i think loyalty is the best trait you need in an environment like d.c. where if you want a friend, get a dog. and if you want two friend, get two dogs. >> it a tough town. >> it is. >> and look, president trump -- >> they are not going to like him. >> they are going to come for him everyday.
>> up next, before we break, today is the 75th anniversary of the attack on pearl harbor. we want to honor and remember the brave americans who fought and died that day for our freedom and also thank those men and women that continue to serve in the military and our country and my father signed up with many of his friends. spent four years serving his country in the pacific. i was always very proud of my dad. coming up, "time" magazine named donald trump the person of the year but also claimed he will be the president of the divided states of america. ainsley earhardt, taya kyle, they will be here with reaction. also judge piro and allen west will be here tonight on "hannity."

any time throughout election psychel that most of us can remember. >> earlier today president-elect donald trump responded to those claims and take a look at this. >> when you say divided states of her ka, i didn't divide them. they are divided now. there is a lot of division. and we are going to put it back together and we're going to have a country that's very well healed. i think putting divided is snarky. but again, it is divided. i'm not president yet. i didn't do anything to divide. >> here now with reaction, the author of the "new york times" best selling book, take heart my child, a mother's dream, fox cohost ainsley earhardt and fox news contributor, by the way, first time, taya kyle is with us. number one new york times best seller. >> she's the hero. >> you both are heroes. congratulationses to both of you. >> thank you. >> why can't they just be
honorable and say he is the guy of the year. >> yeah. >> they say for good or bad. he's not adolf hitler. it is not the divided states of america. it is the united states. we have a few differences but it's always been that way. >> we've always had differences. that's part of being free and having different opinions. usually one group with differing opiniones. we are still one group. no one is leaving the country. >> california is on the verge. >> they are talking about it. texas is talking about it too. but if they do it, we will see. there is one thing to throw a tantrum and say something extreme. which bring me to the other point. people have a voice now. with the social internet, everybody has a voice. i think when i'm at walmart or airports or in public across the country with everyday people, we are not divided. we're very nice to each either. we're good neighborly people. we look out for each other in line. we help each other out with our bags on the airplane. >> i'm doing that all the time. >> you're not in public.
>> so i'm just saying like everyday people, like me, we're fine. we're not divided. >> social media, this is mainstream media. they are upset they didn't win. they like to have control. they don't like donald trump tweeting because they want to control the message. so of course they put him on the cover and put the divided states of america. it is obvious he will be the most interesting man or person like it or not. he had to be on the cover. everyone would have been blasting them if he wasn't on the cover. he said it was rude or snarky on the today show. i was asking some people who voted for him what they thought and they said they are not surprised by it but this is a slap in the face. they said that president obama is the one that has divided the country. that isis wasn't even part of our country that hits home for you. before president obama took office. that jobs, kcompanies moving to mexico. he is not even president yet and he is creating jobs or keeping carrier in the country.
>> you grew up in south carolina. you worked in television. you worked in texas on television. when you were on my have a radio show and talking about your book with you talked about this other country. >> people in the middle -- in what we call the flyover states. people in middle america, in the south, we're just, you're from texas, we're just trying to put food on our table. we are trying to make our lives a little better for our children than what we had. and we're doing it the right way. working really hard. there are a lot of people i know by the grace of god we all have great jobs. we are having a lot of fun doing it. but a lot of my friends hate their job. they hate going to work everyday. they do it to pay their bills. and that's the -- donald trump is giving them a voice. is it t is not an elite group in washington. >> d.c., l.a., new york, san francisco. but look at the rest of the map. mostly red. >> right. >> we've gone through this now
with two election cycles. barack obama saying bitter america americans clinging to god, guns, bibles, religion. >> what's wrong with that. >>. >> that's who i am. or irredeemable deplorables and hillary clinton used, it shows such a deep contempt and the same media people are all part of that establishment and that crowd and they are the ones that were surprised. i was not surprised by the outcome. i knew it was hard path but a doab doable path. they thought h was no clans that donald trump could win. >> right. here is is a perfect i read an article that said what obama wanted to do after presidency. he said the democratic party need to get out and talk to the people and tell them about their programs and why it works and why they should vote the way they vote. in my mind i hear him say is he needs to get out and indoctrine ate the theory they feel is with what is best versus asking people what do you want. that's what freedom is. that's what this democracy is. saying, people what do you want?
let me go to government and represent you. that's where it is getting lost. they want it create the narrative. >> let's go go back to the people in your life that don't like their jobs. i went through 20 years of blue collar work in my life. it isn't that i didn't like it. i like this better. but it is hard. and the average american has been struggling for eight years and i can't sitecite a single statistic show is obama has been successful. >> i have friends that want big family and they can't because they can't afford one or two children. some put $7 in the tank, $7.53 because that is all they have in their wallity. bounci bouncing collection. living paycheck to pay check. and these people are in their 40s. this is not our 20s. >> that's long time for me. you girls are still that age. >> he is giving hope he won't
increase taxes. he will lower taxes. improve race relations, people are hoping and just keep jobs here and keep our country safer. >> that's why i call this election the forgotian man, forgott forgotten woman election. they voted for donald trump. >> coming up, after saying he would oppose donald trump on sanctuary cities, rahm emanuel dead fish will check in. judge pirr or lieutenant colonel alwant west, all to talk about rambo. company, companionship, food... we all need those things. when we get in that spot in life, it's kind of nice to have 'em there.

. welcome back to hannity. well, rahm emmanuel met with donald trump and declared they'd defy the trump administration and remain sanctuary cities for illegal immigrants. and joining us now is the executive director of the national center for policy analysis, lieutenant colonel allen west, judge, you're a former prosecutor. is that breaking the law? >> former prosecutor and judge and what i can tell you is this. >> you were a real judge. >> i was an elected county judge. here is the problem. when you've got a detainer and locals are releasing someone, though the feds have a detainer
there, the issue is whether or not the feds can force the locals to do their job. the answer is simple, they can't. >> are they aiding and abetting in breaking the law. >> you're not going to win that argument. >> so they can release people that are criminal aliens that have broken american law. >> this is what we can do to stop that. they have to give us the information. they can say we're not going to give you information. we're sovereign. we're not going to give you anything that tells you they're illegal, but congress can force them and they have to tell us. that is the end of it. >> sheriff clark, i know you met with trump. anything you want to share with us, i'd love to hear, maybe sheriff clark will put him in charge of ice. i can see a lot of good things
happening. i don't think you'd let this go uncontested. >> no. i couldn't. donald trump, president-elect donald trump owes me nothing. i supported him because i thought he was best for the country. either we're going to be a sovereign nation or not, the problem is getting worse. we to have 0 toller yens for people illegally coming into the country and setting up residents. the cities aren't going to comply and they don't have to, but under federal statute 1324 there are criminal sanctions for people that create safe havens and harbor people that are in the country illegally. congress will deal with immigration reform. >> we have ability to go into the sanctuary city and remove them? >> if we know about them. >> if we know about them. >> allen west, good to see you.
you met with the president-elect. how did that go? >> met very well. i met with the vice president elect and his security team. >> anything going to come of that that you can share with me sth. >> just proud to continue to serve this great nation as four generations of my family have done. we'll see what comes of that. >> what do you make the issue of sanctuary cities? how should it be handled? >> this is not the defines of the trump administration but in defines of the constitutional republic and this rule of law. as sheriff clark stated if we don't have sovereignty of the nation regardless of what you see in the city then we have a breakdown of the rule of law in this establishment of the republic. so i think representative john culverson of texas created a means by which we can cease the funding to these cities and when you talk about political optics this is not a winning argument for the democratic party whatsoever. >> the amazing part of this,
sean, is that they say these laws are unjust federal immigration laws and they're bigoted. here is the bottom line. these are federal laws meanted to be followed. we have ability to enforce those laws and it's about time we did. president-elect trump will do that. obama did not. he protected them and ra. m emmanuel is warning one of the most violent cities in the country. >> i would like to know if the president-elect said what are you going to do to stop innocent people from getting shot in your city? >> we have to try to understand what these immigrants are, who we're protecting and are these refugees now part of the problem in the country? >> sheriff? >> sean, sanctuary cities are havens for criminal activities. people, criminals play on people knowing they cannot report them to the police, for fear of being found to be in the country illegally themselves. so we have under reported crime,
serious crime. rape, domestic violence, child abuse as a result of sanctuary cities. >> colonel, i just can't understand. to me, and i think the average person, hearing that cities can defy federal law this way, and help those that don't respect our laws and sovereignty, even criminal aliens that don't get sent back, it's mind numbing. they're willing to gamble with the lives and safety of the american people. i don't understand it. >> well, you're right. and it shows where there are priorities and concerns are. go and talk to kate steinle's family. ask them how they feel about it. i'm sure that that story is repeat add cross the united states of america. and when you look at the democrat party it's actually as representative tim ryan said, it's now becoming a party of coastal urban elites that do not understand that the american people want to be safe and secure. this is a serious policy issue
and serious rule of law issue. if these mayors decide they don't want to be part of this constitutional republic there are means by which they can be held accountable. >> good to see all of you. all three of you i can see in the trump administration. you're all three my friends and none of you tell me a thing. i'm like really? that is how deep our friendship is? >> you probably know more than we do. >> coming up, we need your help. a very important question of the day, straight ahead. stay with us. afoot and light-hearted i take to the open road. healthy, free, the world before me, the long brown path before me leading wherever i choose. the east and the west are mine. the north and the south are mine. all seems beautiful to me.
