let's put up the flood because i have an exclusive interview on donald trump. we will talk to him in trump tower on saturday. go on trump force. one couldn't be more excited. that's sunday, but tucker carlson tonight is next. ♪ >> welcome to "hannity." tonight president-elect donald trump on his thank you tour speaking to supporters. laura ingraham, she will be here in a minute with reaction. here are some of the highlights. >> in filling my cabinet i am looking for people who fully understand the meaning of service and who are committed to advancing the common good. i believe we're in the process of putting together one of the great cabinets that has ever been assembled in the history of our nation. do you like it so far,
everybody? but to accomplish our goals we must reject the failed approaches of the past. government must stop listening to the special interests and start delivering for the national interest. it is time to deliver for you, the american people, just like iowa delivered for me. boy, did you deliver. boy, did you deliver. the american worker built this country and now it is time for american workers to have a government that for the first time in decades answers to them. we're going to answer to them. my plan begins with bold structural reform to create millions of really good paying jobs. jobs.
whether it is agriculture, medicine or military technology, we want the next generation of innovation and production to happen right here in america and right here in iowa. you're going to be big beneficiaries. big beneficiaries. first on taxes, we're going to undertake one of the great tax reforms and simplifications in american history. it's got to be simpler. too much work, too complicated. at the center of this plan is massive tax relief for the american middle class, has been forgotten. forgotten. boy, did they come out and vote, huh? they came out and vote. >> here now with reaction is fox news contributor of course the editor of lifezette, laura ingraham is back with us. laura, i like the idea. you don't see many people -- i remember ed koch used to thank
people when he was mayor in new york for their vote. i think the idea that you go out and not only thank them but reassure them that what you promised during the campaign remains your agenda. you know, yes, ma'am, no, ma'am, yes, sir, no, sir. >> i think it is a great idea. i think at this moment, sean, trump has a real opportunity to begin to expand the base of the electorate that he attracted on election day by continuing to preach the gospel of prosperity, freedom, independence, sovereignty, the yurule of law applied to everyone regardless of your skin color, ethnicity, where you came from. if you're an american citizen, if you play by the rules you're going to have a much better shot at having more money in your pocket, living a life in safety and actually happiness if he does what he said he was going to do, and i think the reassurance is smart. i think he should keep doing this throughout his four and perhaps eight years in office, and that will drive the left
crazy, but keep going into those areas where republicans have traditionally had difficulty and continue to reassure and build on what he started. >> i'm going to do my opening monologue in the next segment, and that's about the collective left free-out which ak-out whic worse every day. but it seems barack obama is jealous he's not the center of attention, and i guess he is going on his own tour to try to steal the thunder from donald trump. it is not going to be the lowest homeownership debtor doubling of the debt, or benghazi. i'm not sure what he is going to say. but he took a shot, remember when he said bible thumpers clinging to guns, bibles and religion. here is what he said on cnn. >> there's a reason why attitudes about my presidency among whites in northern states are very different from whites in southern states.
so, you know, are there folks whose primary concern about me has been that i seem for the other, are those who champion the birther movement, you know, feeding off of bias, absolutely. >> so there are attitudes about my presidency from whites in northern states is different from whites in southern states. hmm, how do we interpret that? >> sean, it is both preposterous and pathetic. the idea that you can't harbor a negative view of obama's accomplishments or lack thereof without being a racist if you're living in the south and are caucasian means that it is a different type of racism, and it is a different type of bias coming from the left. again, they're always going to excuse failed liberal policies by trying to play some type of
identity politics, in this case of course it is the race card. this follows, of course, after people like eric holder who also brought this up a few years back, that the criticism of barack obama was based in race. when young people, people of our generation, sean, i don't care what color your skin is. if your policies work, if they respect the constitution, they honor our time-tested values, they're going to work and americans are going to, you know, like what you did. if you don't do that, it doesn't matter where you came from, it doesn't matter what color your skin. there are a lot of americans who are going to be unhappy with that. that's what happened with obama. they personally like him, think he is a good father and a good guy, but they don't like the direction the country has gone in, more divided, fewer jobs, more globalization, open borders and all of the rest. but to fall back on the race card -- i mean i guess you can't blame bush anymore so you just southerners, it is the oldest
trick in the liberal play book. it is just old and it is tired. >> but the problems i see for president obama -- and i am speaking objectively. i mean i always thought he was a radical, rigid, left wing i had i don idealogue. as a result, there were people like us warning that statism, leftism, redistribution failed. his signature program, obamacare, a disaster. there's no one economic statistic that i can point to -- >> no. >> -- that points to success. and i would argue that he played a big role in the election of donald trump because of those failed policies. >> well, he is doing a reputation tour now, sean. he wants the historians to write the history of his administration the way he wants it written, and so it is about racism, it is about those awful southerners, it is about rigid
ideology where i think you're exactly right. he never left the campus. he is still at harvard university agitating. he is still on the street corner in chicago, community organizing. that's where his experience was, where he came from. they talk about how trump hasn't evolved to be presidential. i think you can make the argument that obama never evolved beyond the campus activist setting. he got stuck there and he never would leave it. there was no moment of recognition or self-reflection on maybe mistakes he made. instead it is always the other guy's fault. >> last question. are you worried at all about donald trump, you know, saying good things about obama, meeting with al gore, rombo dead fish, mitt romney, are you worried about him meeting with any of these people? >> not if he stays true to his campaign promises, his policy, the bedrock of restoring freedom and the rule of law,
sovereignty, economic prosperity. he has to stick to those core principles. it doesn't matter in the end with whom he meets if he does the things he said he is going to do. there's always going to be compromises necessary, but those core values that he ran on and that he won on, he's got to stick to that. >> i agreed. >> i think a lot of people will be watching very carefully, and i think people are hopeful for good reasons. >> good to see you, laurpa. appreciate it. before we head to break, quick programming note, 10:00 "mad money" eastern paul ryan will join us for an exclusive interview. we will ask him about president-elect trump, repealing or replacing obamacare, the trump agenda or ryan agenda. you don't want to miss it. coming up next, our opening monologue and much more. >> obviously we were surprised by the outcome of the election, and kind of like -- i'm not sure what the right analogy would be, like a punch in the stomach, okay. soul crushing might be another description. >> it's been one month since the election.
♪ live from america's news headquarters i'm patricia stark. the house has passed a stop-gap spending bill to keep the government running beyond friday's midnight deadline, but the bill's fate in the senate is uncertain. the measure aims to fund federal agencies through april. senate democrats from cold states however are threatening to delay passage of the bill. they want more for retired miners who have been guaranteed lifetime health and retirement benefits. it provides only $45 million to protect benefits for about 16,000 retired miners. remembered as a national hero,

devastating to liberal women in washington d.c. they're now cutting their hair and dying it as black as they possibly can because they want to feel empowered in order to oppose president-elect trump. that's not all. the washington post ran a story of what cry baby lefties are calling the trump ten. you send kids off to college, they gain ten pounds first year. clinton voters are so upset they're blaming trump because they're gaining weight. in cosmopolitan put on this quote. over at the view, they've been losing their collective minds over the election. it is like they've got three rosie o'donnell's. take a look. >> one smart person said they think the republicans will turn on him and pence will eventually start doing the presidency. what do you think about that? >> watch your uterus, that's all i'm saying. this new administration is
bringing in something we haven't seen in a long time. >> mental illness. >> and that is -- >> sorry. go ahead. i couldn't stop myself. sorry. >> ladies, your uteruses will be fine. then there's president obama's close adviser valerie jarrett. here is what she said about the election outcome. poor woman. >> you know, obviously we were surprised by the outcome of the election and it is going -- it was like -- i'm not sure what the right analogy would be. like a punch in the stomach, let's say. soul crushing might be another description. >> oh, so very sad. of course, left wing hollywood, they can't take it either. in an interview with a hollywood reporter tina fey is claiming president trump will turn america in nausa america. michael moore is saying republicans will bring about an onslaught of suffering from day one. watch this. >> the majority of americans
wanted hillary clinton. they did not want donald trump. it is the responsibility of this minority of democrats in congress -- >> wait, hold on. >> to block, obstruct, disrupt and do whatever they can to prevent the onslaught of what is going to happen. >> he is going to be inaugurated on january 20th, an january 21st which will be a saturday, there will be a surprise if republicans call a saturday session of congress and they're going to pass law after law after law and have him sign it the next day, and it will be one piece of suffering against people after another. and it is a job of the democrats now to stop the suffering that he is about to create for the american people. >> michael, calm down. the suffering happened under obama. 13 million more americans on food stamp, 8 million more in poverty, lowest labor participation since the '70s. that's obama's policy. by the way, last hit come us from cnn's chris cuomo. he is preparing the president-elect and his nominee to the eps to segregationists.
watch this. >> you know, he hasn't denied global warming. >> says it is far from settled. that means he is not accepting the science. >> either you accept the science or you don't. >> 99% of the scientific community says global warming is -- >> in the forecast -- >> people thought the world was flat, people thought blacks and whites shouldn't marry, people thought blacks shouldn't be equal. that doesn't mean you accept it as fact as a leader. >> all of this is so beyond ridiculous. to my friends in the audience, let me translate what it means. it is pretty simple. they lost, they can't handle it, and you won. hopefully america wins. right now with reaction from the hit show "the five" eric bolling and kimberly guilfoyle. this cracks me up, too. starting in january there's going to be a war on old people. i've been warning my friends that live in the villages to dust off their muskets, world
war ii weapons, because donald trump is sending his army to the villages to beat up old people. >> i love the villages, adore actually is probably the most accurate. >> me too. we're going to have the fox wing at the villages. >> for sure, we're going there to colonize. here's the thing, a cry baby -- fraternize, kol nice. here is the thing. all of the cry babies, do they want to be sponsored by kleenex because they're crying every day. they're looking for a sponsorship, whining about everything. keep cutting your hair and acting ridiculous. it is really unbecoming. honestly, can you imagine if donald trump didn't win the election and people behaved in this fashion? >> can you imagine if eric started dying his hair platinum blond? that would be the equivalent. >> yeah, i nope. it is really crazy. >> so much all of the people you played i think michael moore is most egregious. donald trump went into michigan. his twitter account is mm flint.
michigan voted for donald trump. he has done nothing but champion the causes of the people he proposes to represent, the working class voter, the union guy. look what he's done. he has saved thousands of jobs between ford, carrier, you know, the japanese investment bank. >> apple. >> apple says they want to bring back some of their assembly plants from indonesia back to america, and they've done it because donald trump is elected president. >> what trump said is he will call every ceo that is thinking of moving their business to mexico. is he going to offer them money? no, he is saying the regulatory environment, the bureaucracy is going to change, the tax benefits will be massive. >> can i throw something out here? >> yeah. >> what donald trump did was, okay, so probably for the better part of the last 20 years we've been told globalism is better, bigger is better. bankers love this. bankers go, this is fantastic for us. we'll get free money from the fed.
corporate ceos go, it is great for us, too, we're getting money and pushing jobs overseas where it is cheaper and they pay off the politicians to keep the circle of life going between them. trump says, globalism doesn't work anymore. nationalism works for us. we want america to be strong. he broke the chain and they're worried. >> you better get ready and buckle up. it will be a rough ride in the first 200 days of the administration because they're going to have a massive collective melt down, freak out. >> of course. but let them. these are the same people that were complaining and saying that he wasn't going to honor the election. they're the ones not honoring it. michael moore is the one calling for anarchy, saying to disrupt the election results and go ahead and protest and calling for all of this ridiculousness to try to impede donald trump, the president-elect, from becoming the next president of the united states and doing this at the time of the inauguration. he is literally out there trying to incite riots and problems like this. >> well, you know, we're going to put suffering on the american
people. well, with 13 million more americans on food stamps and 8 million more in poverty and the lowest labor participation rate in the '70s, the suffering has already happened. undoing the mess is what this is going to be about, not creating suffering. >> suffering was created by liberal rule. >> right. >> in democratic cities across the country and they're the ones worse off. that's why donald trump said, what do you have to lose. >> coming up next tonight on "hannity." >> maybe, you know, the choice of words weren't the best, but the ultimate message was the same. he didn't tell the truth. >> all right. carrier's union boss continues to call president-elect trump a liar even though carrier did in fact confirm over 1100 jobs are slated to stay in the u.s. after trump's. also later tonight. >> started with the hands up, don't shoot lie that was pr propagated by every mainstream

now, the president-elect took to twitter to respond, saying the union didn't do anything to try to save those jobs but let's set the record straight. now, donald trump did not lie. he said the company would be saving 1100 jobs, which is what carrier put out in a statement saying, quote, we are announcing today that carrier will continue to manufacture gas furnaces in indianapolis in addition to retaining engineering and headquarters staff, preserving more than 1,000 jobs. with reaction, the author of "hopping over the rabbit whole" trump transition team member anthony scaramucci. from the fox business network, everybody knows him, lou dobbs. the bottom line is, look, i love that deal, but i think i love the deal where the guy from the bank, from the group -- >> massiochiasan. >> yeah, lou, you have been in

here. >> allow the repatriation money to come in. >> but with an important quid pro quo, you do not ship away middle class jobs, that you do not arbitrage labor rates, you end the absolute hemorrhaging of the middle class which has been shrinking for the past 15 years rather than glowing. under president trump this will be reversed as long as he adheres to talking to any ceo thinking of shipping jobs overseas because of labor rates. >> let's add these calls for 10% repatriation to multi-national companies bringing money back, add to obamacare, won't that end up being like a rebate? >> no question. >> add it to energy independence. do we now have a formula for pretty significant growth? will it reach four%, 4 1/2%? >> you can get 4% growth, you can double the economy in 18
years and solve the entitlement problems. 4% growth gets you 18 years of doubling the economy. the other thing, sean, you will engage the middle and working class in the cycle of consumption. at the end of the day, working class people will have more disposable income and that's where you get the growth from. >> why am i worried about one thing? a trillion dollars, paul ryan couldn't answer the question on "60 minutes." a trillion on infrastructure spending, we need to build infrastructure, but we really only get $0.50 on the dollar if it goes through the bureaucracy. would it be better to hand the money to an outside group rather than the 535 guys that use it for power? >> i think what would be better in point of fact is to have a targeted infrastructure plan with those federal dollars moving directly into the economy. we have seen enough of bridges to nowhere, roads to nowhere and, by the way, you get to keep the potholes and the decaying
infrastructure? >> can you give you some comfort on that because i'm working inside transition? >> yes. >> i think we have an asset allocation model and cost benefit model -- >> pay as you go? >> i wouldn't say pay as you go, sean, but i would say hopefully we get the trillion dollar block and we will be able to set it up in a way where you and i could look at it and say that's good business for america, a multiplier effect on the infrastructure. >> two of the most extraordinary infrastructure are the space program and highway plan. they didn't worry about the direction of the velocity of money they were generating. they went after -- they went after the problem and they solved it. guess what? the economics and the finances followed. you do not -- we have a bunch of so-called wonks in washington. by the way, these are the most dangerous people in washington as far as i'm concerned. >> i agree with you. >> they're standing between people of action and

top intelligence experts including the director of the national intelligence agency, james clapper? watch this. >> what is going on there is a-in maybe some respects a new fatah force. what is going on there and the attraction of these foreign fighters is very, very worrisome. >> with the growth that you pointed out of terrorist elements in places like syria and yemen, we have a number of fronts we need to confront simultaneously. >> al-baghdadi is a terrorist under u.s. law and is currently based in syria. his mission is clearly stated in his own statements, is to carve out his own governing territory from baghdad to syria through lebanon. >> how did the president get it so wrong? joining me, the author of "defeating jihad, the winnable war," dr. sebastian gorka. in 2007, president bush warned with pinpoint accuracy what
would happen if we pulled out iraq too early. listen to this, dr. gorka. >> begin withdrawing before our commanders tell us we're ready would be dangerous, for iraq, for the region and for the united states. it would mean surrendering the future of iraq to al qaeda. it would mean we would be risking mass killings on a horrific scale. it would mean we allowed the terrorists to establish a safe haven in iraq to replace the one they lost in afghanistan. it would mean increasing the probability american troops would have to return at some later date to confront an enemy that is even more dangerous. >> not only did they get the safe haven but also the oil money so that they could advance the caliphate. he could have listened to any number of people, dr. gorka. how could he possibly say what he said, that he didn't see it coming? >> very simply, sean. remember he said in that interview that wasn't on the
radar screen for him. well, sean, you need to be looking at the radar screen if you are looking for threats. we know it is publicly disclosed information that the president of the united states, barack obama, received and read less than half of his presidential daily intelligence briefings. you're not going to know what's on the radar screen if you don't look at the radar. >> well said. >> the fact that -- >> well said. >> thank you. >> the point -- go ahead. >> well, as late as 2014 he referred to isis as the jv team. in october 2015, that's a year ago, a little over a year ago, he is saying that isis is contained. what "alice in wonderland" world is he living in? >> he said isis is contained and secretary kerry said we are winning this war three days before the san bernardino attack that was the largest attack on
u.s. soil until the oklahoma massacre. the fact is this administration has allowed politics to trump national security and the safety of americans. remember, sean, when this senator from illinois that nobody heard of ran for president, he had a very simple bumper sticker. he said, afghanistan is the, quote, unquote, good war and iraq is the bad war, which meant when he became president he was locked in ideal logically to ending the war in iraq and pulling our troops out before we'd actually finished the job. he allowed his political commitment and his ideology to trump the actual execution of the mission, because in my analysis of the history of war you can only win by actually destroying the enemy, removing your troops from the battlefield is not the definition of victory, but president obama thinks it is. >> did you meet with president-elect trump and is there any chance you might join his administration? >> i'm in regular contact with
general mike flynn, his national security adviser. i will be in new york later this week but i haven't seen mr. trump since last year. so fingers crossed, we'll see what happens. >> all right. dr. gorka, i think you would be a great addition in my humble opinion. thank you. >> thank you, sean. >> when we come back, a very important question of the day is straight ahead. ♪ my friends think doing this at my age is scary. i say not if you protect yourself. what is scary? pneumococcal pneumonia. it's a serious disease. my doctor said the risk is greater now that i'm over 50! yeah...ya-ha... just one dose of the prevnar 13® vaccine can help protect you from pneumococcal pneumonia- an illness that can cause coughing, chest pain, difficulty breathing, and may even put you in the hospital. prevnar 13® is approved for adults 18 and older to help prevent infections from 13 strains of the bacteria that cause pneumococcal pneumonia. you should not receive prevnar 13® if you have had a severe allergic reaction to the vaccine or its ingredients.

"special report" is next. this is a fox news alert. president-elect trump nominates another member of his cabinet today as one of his picks comes under heavy fire from the left. first, the death of an american hero. john glenn, the first american to orbit the earth died today after being hospitalized for more than a week at a columbus, ohio, cancer hospital. he was 95. president obama called glenn an icon who spent his life defending our freedom and breaking barriers. donald trump described him as a pioneer or hero who inspired generations of future explorers. my colleague john scott looks back at the remarkable life and
