pick up your copy, settle for more today. go to facebook.com/the kelly file. tell us what you thought of the show. tweet me, thanks for watching tonight, i'm sandra smith and this is "the kelly file." welcome to "hannity." the obama administration and israel in a war of words. i'm kimberly gill foil in for sean tonight. the united nations condemned israeli settlements earlier today. secretary of state john kerry lectured and criticized america's ally in a foreign policy speech, take a look. >> friends need to tell each other the hard truths. and friendships require mutual respect. the united states did, in fact, vote in accordance with our values. just as previous u.s. administrations have done at the
security council before us. they fail to recognize that this friend, the united states of america, that has done more to support israel than any other country. this friend that has blocked countless efforts to delegitimize israel, cannot be true to our own values or even the stated democratic values of israel. and we cannot properly defend and protect israel if we allow a viable two-state solution to be destroyed before our own eyes. here is a fundamental reality, if the choice is one state, israel can either be jewish or democratic, cannot be both. >> and hours later, israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu responded to secretary kerry, watch this. >> i must express my deep disappointment with the speech today of john kerry.
the speech that was almost as unbalanced as the anti-israel resolution passed at the u.n. last week. secretary kerry paid lip service to the unremitting campaign of terrorism that has been waged by the palestinians against the jewish state for nearly a century. what he did was suspend muslim's speech, blaming israel for rt lack of peace. israelis do not need to be lectured about the importance of peace by foreign leaders. israel's hand has been extended in peace to his neighbors from day one. from it's very first day. >> president-elect donald trump is also weighing in. >> treated very, very unfairly by a lot of different people. look at resolutions in the united nations, take a look at what's happened, they're up for 20 reprimands and other nations that are horrible places, horrible places, and treat people horribly, haven't been reprimanded. >> and here now with reaction is
prime minister netanyahu's spokesperson, david key. thank you so much for joining us tonight on hannity. a lot of reaction around the world today given the comments of secretary of state john kerry. what is your position? >> israel was deeply, deeply disappointed with the speech. primarily because it didn't really focus on the core of the conflict. secretary kerry took up a lot of time and blaming israel for the supposed, you know, crime of jews living in their ancient homeland of judiah, but the core of the conflict remains that persistent palestinian refusal to accept the jewish state in any boundaries. and this comes after the obama administration colluded with the palestinians really behind israel's back. to pass this absolutely anti-israel resolution that actually called the western wall, if you can believe it, occupied palestinian territory. the place where jews have been and prayed towards for thousands of years. so i think what really needs to be asked of this administration
is will they veto any future resolution in their remaining time in office in the security council against the state of israel as this resolution was. it's a shame that the world's attention is not focussed on palestinian hate speech, on the refusal to accept any jewish state in the middle east because if we can refocus the war of attention on that, i believe question make true progress of peace. >> international developments of the middle east here. prime minister netanyahu spoken to either president barack obama or president-elect donald trump? >> well, the israeli government, of course, is in touch with both the current administration and the incoming administration. but think of the absurdity of this speech given just the recent history of our relations with the palestinians. the prime minister has called literally hundreds of times to meet with president for peace talks without any precondition.
he invited him. he offered to go to the parliament and all of those calls were turned down with a resounding no. and on the palestinian side, the palestinian president has said openly and publicly he will never recognize the jewish state. they're naming soccer teams after mass murderers. senior advisers are calling to slit the throats of israelis wherever you find them, and the palestinian government is actually paying anyone who murders an israeli a monthly salary. fp you want to find the real barrier to peace, look no further than that rejectionism, that support for terror, and inciting this idea that one day there won't be a jewish state here in the middle east. >> there's also been a bold statement suggesting that you have ironclad proof that the united states was come police sit, in fact, in helping crack the u.n. resolution. what proof do you have of that? >> well, i can't share all the
proof i have because it's of a sensitive nature, but needless to say, i have seen it myself with my own eyes. it's ironclad. it's true beyond a shadow of a doubt. there was a recently released transcript out of egypt, i haven't read through the entire transcript, but it tallies with what we have seen and understood from sources in the arab world. that the united states was largely behind this push at the u.n., this anti-israel resolution of the security council, and it's a shame because it's a real abandonment of america's historic role protecting israel at this deeply biassed body that frankly delights in lambasting the middle east one liberal democracy and doesn't quite have so much time for hundreds of thousands of syrians who have been butchered just in the last few years. >> certainly. well the prime minister netanyahu provided the evidence that you have and provide that to president-elect donald trump and to the obama administration? >> yes.
we are going to share that with the administration through the proper channels. and i, again, hope that this -- the administration in it's last few days is asked the question whether it will or it won't veto any future resolution dealing with israel at the united nations. i hope so because the body is deeply biassed, friends don't take friends to the security council as prime minister netanyahu said, and it's my hope that israelis and palestinians can sit down across the enable -- table from one another in good faith in the spirit of mutual recognition of bringing people together because everybody deserves to live in peace. israelis and palestinians alike. it's an absolute tragedy that the palestinian leadership has rejected the prime minister's calls for peace. >> it sounds like this is an issue of trust. in fact you would share that information with president-elect donald trump, but not with the current administration, president barack obama or secretary john kerry.
>> well, it's not really a matter of trust, the current administration knows precisely what it did, it doesn't really need our information. >> all right. well, always a pleasure, thank you for joining us on "hannity tonight mr. keys. >> thank you so much. 6 >> and here with more is the author of allied and prime minister netanyahu's office, ambassador michael orn. thank you for joining us tonight. certainly a very interesting day, in terms of the international development. very significant in terms of relations between the united states and israel. i'd like to get your reaction. >> good to be with you, kimberly. it was an odd and very disturbing speech indeed. secretary kerry talks about the absence of a two-state solution, but fails to mention that the palestinians have been offered a palestinian state little less than four times in the past, and it turned it down each time, mostly with violence. he goes on and on about 80% of this speech, over an hour and a
half is dedicated to attacking israeli settlements, but there's no mention that israel left gaza and ripped up 21 settlements in order to advance peace and all we got was thousands of rockets fired at our civilians. he talks about the absence of negotiations between israel and the palestinians and just forgets to mention that the palestinian authority has refused to sit at the negotiating table with us for eight years. and as my colleague david keys just said on your prime minister, prime minister netanyahu has offered to sit with the president of the palestinian authority without preconditions anywhere, any time. a strange and disturbing speech. at the end of the day. he talks about as if he, secretary of state john kerry of the united states knows better than the people of israel what is best for them and certainly
better than their democratically elect d leaders, myself included. strange and disturbing. >> as we sit here and reflect this evening on the international developments, what is your opinion of the legacy of the obama administration on. talks and the relationship with israel? >> well, the legacy will be two-fold. it was a policy which from day one rewarded the palestinians for not sitting at the negotiating table and created a situation where they had so much to gain by not negotiating with us because the administration would give them what they wanted. in the last u.n. resolution, it gave him what he always wanted, it gave him the tools to fight us in international criminal courts and to sanction and isolate us. the other will be the iran nuclear deal. it was kind of strange, can't really kerry mentioned the closest relationship in the gulf, it failed to mention that the major reason we have grown
close is because of the iranian nuclear deal. we're afraid of what american foreign policy that has wrougt in our region. those will be the two major reasons. iran nuclear deal, and israel facing the dangers of sanctions and boycott. >> and so, what measures can the administration under president-elect donald trump take to restore the face, the relationship with israel and undo the damage that's been wrougt by the iron nuclear deal and measures by the u.n. security council? >> well, as i did talk about in the book, in the allied book, i thought the the two major principles of the u.s./israel alliance is the principles of no daylight and no surprises. friends can have differences, but they're not made public. friends do not make them the public the way secretary of state made our differences public tonight for an hour and a half on international television.
and no surprises means that if the president or secretary of state is going to make a major statement on the middle east and the way that impacts us, we have to know about it in advance. nobody in the israeli government knew what the secretary of state was going to say tonight. it was a complete surprise. >> yeah certainly. >> we have to restore these two principles. the president-elect can come into office and make it clear that if anybody tries to boycott or sanction the state of israel, they're going to have to deal not just with israel, but deal with the united states of america. america remains the world's most powerful and the most financially robust power, i don't think anybody wants -- excuse the expression, mess with the united states. >> you're right that the president-elect donald trump has made it clear that the united states respects and will stand by its strong ally in israel. always a pleasure, thank you so much for joining us. and here now with more reaction is the author of "defeating jihad: the winnable war." stunning developments today, dr. gorka.
really incredible. it seemed to me the secretary of state, john kerry, pretty much kicked the chair out from under israel at the negotiating table. >> i think it's worse than that. i think after january 20th as the historians start to write their accounts of the last eight years, i'm convinced the obama administration will go down as the most anti-israeli u.s. administration. since israel was created after world war ii. not only was this unnecessary. it also just is a fit of peak. it is a spiteful measure that simply adds the last dollop of instability to the middle east. look what's happened in the last eight years. the ambassador mentioned our sunni allies in the middle east, people like the king of jordan, the president of egypt. they were basically abandoned by the obama administration after
the so-called arab spring. additionally, we pulled our troops out in 2011 from iraq which led to the destabilization of the whole region and the rise of isis. and then finally, the administration thought that in some crazy scheme, the balancing of the region would occur if we gave $150 billion to the mullers in iran. the region is on fire, kimberly, this was utterly unnecessary and it simply weakens our most important ally in the middle east. >> certainly too well described. it was an accelerant on already volatile situation in the least. and the last thing we need to do is further compromise the security and positioning of israel, one of our strongest allies, dr. gorka, more with you after the break. please stand by. coming up next right here on "hannity." >> when you see the united nations solving problems, they don't. they cause problems. so if it lives up to the
potential, it's a great thing, but if it doesn't, it's a waste of time and money. >> president-elect donald trump talking about the united nations earlier today. we'll get reaction again from dr. gorka and texas congressman and then later, president-elect trump announced today that another major u.s. company is bringing jobs back to america. anthony and nicole join us later in the program. that and much more of "hannity" continues. more of "hannity" continues. ok, let me explain.
this is your tax return. ok. now, there are many right ways to fill out this tax return. and the irs will accept them all. one of them gets you the most money back. isn't that the one you want? that's the one i want. that's the one you want. mmm... you touched all these. don't just get your taxes done, amy. get your taxes won.
late wednesday fans started leaving candles and flowers on her star on hollywood walk of fame. her son todd fisher confirming his mother's passing tonight. reynolds first major film role came in 1952 classic "singing in the rain." she was not yet 20. reynolds talked about her life on the red carpet. >> i've been lucky. i started when i was young. i'm 16 and now i'm, you know, how many years is it? 65 years. i've had a wonderful career, and it's been a joy. >> debbie reynolds was 84 years old. now back to "hannity." you want to have such tremendous potential not living up to it's potential. there was such tremendous potential, but it is not living up. when you do see the united nations solving problems, they don't. they cause problems. if it lives up to the potential,
it's a great thing, if it doesn't, it's a waste of time and money. >> that was president-elect trump earlier today saying the united nations is not living up to it's potential after the security council voted to condemn israeli settlements. others are taking things a step further and now calling on the united states to kick the u.n. to the curb. watch this. >> we're paying an organization that spends half it's time, more than half its time and energy and resources and bureaucracy trying to attack the only jewish state on the planet, a tiny little speck, while genocide, mayhem, murder, terrorism, is going on all over the world. it's good real estate in downtown new york city, and trump ought to find a way to put his name on it and turn it into condos. >> i think we ought to get jackhammers and jackhammer the whole thing off, float it into the east river. ask anybody to host it to come pick up it, haul it off, it'll be easier to park in manhattan after we get rid of it.
>> all right. well, in response to growing outrage over the united nations, the washington free beacon is reporting that quote, congress is moving to cut u.s. founding to the u.n. in wake of anti-israel vote. joining us now, a texas congressman, louis goemer and back with us is the author of "defeating jihad," dr. sebastian gorka. pleasure to see you. unbelievable today. >> yeah, just keep coming back to thank god donald trump got elected or we would really be in trouble. i've talked to a number of colleagues. i've got a bill that hopefully will be drafted by friday anyway. two things, one we don't give a dime to the u.n. until they rescind that resolution and people are saying, they'll never do that. fine, they don't need our help to be anti-semitic, and then the other is to prevent even one dime, making it a crime to use
any government money to recognize palestine as an independent country or state. because that's what i keep hearing is going to be the next shoe to drop. this administration, kimberly, reminds me of one of my elementary school teachers. out of six teachers, one loved bullies. and she always supported the bullies over the victims. and that's what this administration does. look at it. who have they given more money than anybody? iran. the largest supporter of terrorism. and then you look at who they're supporting in this, the palestinians that have wreaked havoc as people said over and over. there's only one place where muslims have complete freedom in the middle east, and it's israel. >> unbelievable. >> so they're our friends and this is an outrage. but it is so consistent with this -- and these guys, you listen to kerry, he lied when he
talked about khan, he lied when he threw somebody else's medal in the white house. he's lied over and over again. the state department lied about the attack at benghazi being about a video. and now, they're misrepresenting, once again, what's going on there. and we've got to stand up for israel. this is such an outrage. >> undermining israel, our key ally. why do you think the united nations is so anti-israel? >> because of the politics that has taken it hostage in the last 30 years. look, the u.n. made sense when it was created in san francisco in 1945 after 60 million people were killed in world war ii. with american leadership, it helped to stabilize the world. look at the reaction to the korean crisis, we deployed our forces there under a u.n. mandate. but it's failed in the last 30
years. if the u.n. really stood for peace and stability, then yugoslavia wouldn't have happened, rwanda wouldn't have happened. the crisis in the middle east and syria wouldn't have happened. look at one thing today, kimberly, we now have 65 million refugees in the world. that's more than we had after world war ii ended in 1945. the world is in chaos. the u.n. should be doing something about it. because, it isn't being led by the values of the founding of this republic, by the white house, we have the disaster that we have today. the united nations no longer serves the purpose for which it was created. >> right after the u.n. was created, of course, the united states expressed to truman a democrat through and through was the first national -- international leader to recognize israel as being an independent nation and now they're wanting to give those places back. >> on that note, dr. gorka,
what can president-elect donald trump do, if you can give me a quick thing on this to turn it around. >> i think the statements he's already made are very, very clear. the u.n., as an institution, will not be favored by the white house after january 20th. remember, we are the largest funder of this institution. without our money, it simply cannot function and the ten nations that were behind this outside of the current administration will suffer whether it is bilaterally, economically or diplomatically. they would pay a price or basically a modern version of anti-semitism. >> can i throw in something? >> real quick. >> the u.n. -- i looked into this, rockefeller provided that to the u.n. so long as the primary office of the u.n. if we say they're no longer stop providing visas by allowing them
to come, they'll have to move to brussels or somewhere else, and that land creeds back to it source. so, it opens up a lot of new territory for new york. >> something to check out. gentlemen, thank you so much for joining us tonight. and coming up, president-elect donald trump announced today that a major u.s. economy will bring jobs back to america. anthony from the trump transition and fox business's nicole joins us next with reaction. and later -- >> if i had run again and articulated it, i think i could have mobilized a majority of people to rally behind it. >> president obama keeps taking shots at his successor. and now it's president-elect trump is firing back. matt and mercedes would have reaction, that and much more as "hannity" continues. ♪

that is why we're going to lower our business tax rate from 35% down to 15% and you're going to see things happen. we're also going to eliminate job-killing regulations. and lift the restrictions on the production of american energy, including shale, oil, natural gas, and beautiful, clean coal. >> like the sound of that. that was president-elect trump sharing his economic vision for the country. and earlier today, the president-elect made this announcement. >> so we just had some very good news, because of what's happening and the spirit and the hope, i was just called by the head people at sprint, and they're going to be bringing 5,000 jobs back to the united states. they're taking them from other countries. they're bringing them back to the united states. and mazda and other people were very much involved in that. i want to thank them. and also one web, a new company
is going to hire 3,000 people. so that's very exciting. >> jobs, jobs, jobs, and joining us with reaction to the fox business network nicole and the rabbit role. trump transition team committee member. guys, thanks for being on "hannity" tonight, music to my ears when i hear jobs, jobs here in america, jobs coming back to the country. anthony, this was positive news today. >> yeah, it's great news. it's symbolic in some ways, kimberly, but the greatest part about it is that mr. trump prosecuting that agenda, less regulation, simplified taxes, and higher wages for working class families. and middle class america. and that'll start a whole virtue circle of consumption which i think will be terrific. >> all right. you like these numbers we're seeing recently. >> i do, i do.
i think we've had jobs added, but we need it to be done better for the american people. and i think, and that i believe trump really has it in his heart to do the best he can for all americans. we already -- we've already seen him doing this before he becomes president. and he's tough. he's tough across the board, but you mentioned less regulation and cutting of taxes, infrastructure, that's a big one of his, and that's going to create a lot of jobs. building tunnels, bridges, and building up our infrastructure in the united states. >> the thing i've seen from working inside, the no nonsense approach. he's not looking for politicians and political paybacks and this sort of thing. okay, is this going to work for the american people or not? if it works for the american people, we're going to do this and we're going to go full into it as hard as we can. this is super refreshing to see for the first time, kimberly and
nicole, we have a business person at the top that's going to think like a business person and prosecute this agenda. >> that's what i think people are enthusiastic about, nicole, this isn't a man waiting in fact to take office. he's taking meetings now, trying to make a difference, working every day that he can to move this economic agenda forward, taking the necessary steps. >> this is drain the swamp. i think people are tired of politicians, that's one of the reasons -- one of the many reasons that he was elected to be our next president. people are tired of the same old garbage. they like the idea -- first of all, he's very hard worker. very smart man, and he himself has said, listen, if it's not working, i'm going to change it. i'm going to change it. there's a lot of -- you know, new people coming in in very powerful positions under him, but if that's not working, he will make the alterations that he needs to do. don't you agree? >> 100%. the only negative that nicole's bringing up, he's working 22 hours a day, kimberly.
i don't know how you don't keep up with him. >> it's really high expectations. we're all sitting there saying, he's not drinking any caffeine. >> right. >> he's revved up. >> high energy. high energy. >> optimism to the stock market. we've seen dow jones -- >> the trump bombs, the big rally, we might be hitting 20,000 this week. >> consumer confidence. >> 15 year high now. >> that's right. and the holiday shopping season is set up, they haven't tallied it up to be the best since 2005. people are feeling optimism and open and that in itself is worth a lot. >> now come january 20th, how do you think the markets will respond when it's official? >> i think still favorable. i mean listen, we've had a big run-up. what markets typically do is they recede a little bit after big run-ups. i think the growth opportunity, the markets foreseeing a three and a halfish percent growth rate. that filters into the earnings. last point tax cut. you'll see earnings, increases, and profits across the board that's factored already. the market will run from here as
a result from that too. >> i think people are interested in things he can go without congressional approval to get things done. >> you make a great point. i was speaking on one of the traders today and saying that. he doesn't need congressional approval for everything he wants to do, for example, oil drilling, and jobs involved in oil. he can move it right ahead with that. >> and that's some of the things that are going to help across the board in terms of stimulating the economy and getting this robust future going. >> and there'll be a whole regulatory protocol put in place and implementation in relaxing or make the things leglated on the markets, smart regulation which i think i think will put people at ease to plan for the future. >> because between obama care and these job cycling regulation. new companies entrepreneurs have
found it to be a hostile environment in terms of being an entrepreneur and getting a j hi. full-time positions that really do help the numbers overall. >> and the community banks are not lending. that's one of the worst part of the dodd frank stuff. these small businesses that we rely upon for the new jobs and wage growth and capital from the community bank. >> how can they create jobs if they can't even start get the money to create a company. and they have so many rules and regulations to go through to even try and start a business. certainly going to be more favorable to the business. >> i'm having a lot of fun. i have to say. it's been great. >> i can tell. he's got the economic optimism all over your face. >> there are some downsides, you could see higher mortgage rates, you could see higher gasoline, the dollar is high. those are all the little things. i think the big picture is optimistic, hope, and change for the new year. not just energy independence,
not looking for that, but energy dominance. united states. all right. thank you so much. both of you, great to see you tonight. and coming up next right here on "hannity." >> if i were to run again and articulated it, i think i could have mobilized a majority of the american people to rally behind it. >> president obama continues to take jabs at the incoming administration, and now protect -- president-elect trump is responding. matt and mercedes are next with reaction. later, americans are more divided than ever, but that isn't stopping president obama from making questionable comments about race. sheriff david clark will weigh in later. that and much more straight ahead on "hannity." more straig ahead on "hannity." at godaddy, our goal is to make you look awesome online.

welcome back to "hannity" president obama continues taking swipes at the incoming administration. here's what he said on monday. >> the majority does buy into the notion of a one america that is tolerant and diverse and open and full of energy and dynamism and the problem is it doesn't always manifest itself in politics, right? i am confident in this vision because i'm confident that if i -- if i had run again and articulated it, i think i could have mobilized the american people to rally behind it.
this morning donald trump fired back saying doing my best to disregard the many inflammatory president statements and roadblocks. thought it was going to be a smooth transition, not. but former senior advisor to the president david axelrod says president obama is looking to act like his predecessor after he leaves office, watch this. >> he often talks about the example of the bushes, both bushes, as ex-presidents who have been very discreet about how they've spoken on public issues since they left the white house, and he appreciated it and saw virtue in it. and earlier today, president-elect trump told reporters he spoke to president obama today on the phone. mr. trump said it was a nice conversation. and joining us now with reaction, american conservative union chairman matt schlapp and mercedes schlapp. pleasure to have you both on the program. these are remarkable comments back and forth. saying things like he would have beat donald trump if he was
running this time for a third term. >> it's shocking that he will go out there at this point in time when what we know is donald trump won on the fact that this was a rejection of president obama, of hi policies, of his agenda. and i find that the fact is that that president obama, he's coming across being the sore loser. he's not being graceful as you have seen with president george h.w bush who wrote a note to bill clinton saying i'm rooting for you. he's convinced if you were to run again. he has lost touch to as where the american people are. >> what do you think he should be doing to be helpful to donald trump during this transition time. and i bet you're not going to say he should be
undermining issues. >> how about not working behind the incoming president's back to try to bind the administration on questions like israel and so many other questions like these executive actions he's continuing to take. he lectures donald trump on the fact that executive authority should walk softly with it, be careful with it. at the same time he's got his phone in and his pen, and to the last day of his administration, president obama is going to push his agenda. he hasn't listened to the voters for eight years. he's not going to listen to them over the course of the next several weeks. >> it's really interesting. it seems there could be real moments here, especially on the tail end of his administration to leave with class and dignity, to not take shots and yet, then you see president-elect trump reacting with class and dignity saying okay, i spoke to him today. we had a nice conversation. it's unbelievable. it's like he's in the oval office with him meeting. that went well, and then as soon
as president-elect trump left, the parting shots came. >> i know. it's amazing. it's like president obama is trying to build his own wall to ensure that his last-minute efforts, for example, between abstaining the vote in the united nations that was anti-israel, the fact is he's basically banning states for funding from planned parenthood, banning the arctic and atlantic ocean and oil drilling. he's placing these obstacles in place to ensure that president-elect donald trump can't be successful or will have to basically push forward in many legal challenges in all these different cases. i find it's unfortunate. president obama can say he had a positive conversation with donald trump, but it is hypocritical when in fact what you're seeing is he's trying to undermine president-elect donald trump as we know. he should just move forward and allow the president-elect to be
able to really have what we would consider a peaceful transition and smooth transition. >> absolutely. matt, actions speak louder than words. >> yeah. that's exactly right. look, when we came to the white house for president george w. bush, the ws were taken off our keyboards, the voice mail systems were laced with profane messages. it was an unclassy way to transition from one president to the other, and i think president george w. bush realized he reacted with class when president obama won the presidency. it's a shame president obama can't grab the same touch of class for this incoming president. >> fantastic, and mercedes, the last last. >> i think for president obama we've had these moments in history where you've seen this awkward transition of power. obviously president obama is making it difficult for donald trump. i think for donald trump we're all looking forward to this
inauguration. and let's see if president obama actually shows up. we've seen cases in the past in history where we've seen presidents not show up. so this will be an interesting case. >> all right. and you have any favorite name. that was my mother's name, mercedes, and i went to mercy high school. but matt, you're cool too. >> many mercy on us. >> indeed. president obama promised to unite americans but the country is more divided than ever when it comes to race. sheriff david clarke is here next with reaction. that and much more as "hannity" continues.

wikileaks took time to list by the democrats suffered so many losses during president obama's two terms in office. he tweeted one of the reasons was in part, quote, obama's race, amid white fear of cultural change. president obama has also echoed the same type of sentiment over and over again. watch this. >> if you accept the support of klan sympathizers, if they say they really like what you're doing and you're kind of slow to denounce or separate yourself from them, that's what you're going to do when you're in office. >> he may up the ante in anti-muslim sentiment, but if you look at the other republican candidates, that's troubling too. >> we've had to deal with racism or conflict between racist, ethnic groups, new immigrants, that especially becomes a problem when the economy is not doing well and so people feel
stressed and typically when people feel stressed, they turn on others who don't look like them. >> and joining me now with reaction is the milwaukee county sheriff david clarke. thank you for being here tonight. i know. it's really unbelievable, isn't it, niger? >> well, it's not only unbelievable, kimberly, but it's a lie. this president on average got a higher percentage of the white vote than any democrat has in 50 years. and the real tragedy of the obama years is not just that this racial harangue is now back in fashion, but that you've got a killing field in his very own backyard of chicago. he came into office with chicago being a killing field. he's leaving office with chicago being a horrific killing field for black and brown families. >> you're absolutely right. sheriff clarke, always great to see you. we have these numbers here.
chicago murders since 2009, 3,904 lives lost. and these numbers come from a chicago police department. it's unbelievable, the war on our streets in this country. >> and black lives matter is nowhere to be found. look, as of january 20th, is it close to january 20th? can we buy the remaining time obama has left? can we buy him out like a contract? this guy has continually for eight years rubbed the stain of slavery, rubbed white people's nose in the stain of slavery. he's done it for eight years. about 150 years removed from slavery. nobody said forget about it, but you have to be able to move on at some point, and we will not allow america to do that. and until he leaves the white house, we're going to continue to have to put up with this nonsense. people are tired of it. latinos, black people, white people, and other ethnicities
have said we've had enough of this racial divide in america. and they really want to move on from it, but this president will not allow them to do that. >> you know, niger, many people think president obama helped interject race into this presidential election in 2016. >> well, i think he did, unfortunately, and he wasn't alone in doing so. sex. it's always easier to throw up artificial scapegoats and point the finger of blame instead of taking responsibility. right now he's got an administration that's going to war against our strongest ally in the middle east, and he has his own gaza strip in his adopted hometown of chicago. it's a disgrace. there's a great reporter, amber randall who wrote about this. and in the 11th district alone in chicago there were 91 killings last year. that's more than most mid sized
cities. how about that, taking responsibility for that? how about leaving that as a legacy, as opposed to pointing the fingers at israel and republicans and the nra and the white guy. it's nonsense. >> yeah. it's unbelievable, slr clarke, and then the struggles that law enforcement has had under the administration as well. >> it's been an ugly chapter in american history. the president has been exactly the opposite. it's going to continue for the next couple of weeks. you look at what's going on in chicago as you mentioned. there's no sense of urgency about what's going on from him. and then you get the one questionable police shooting or even a wrongful police shooting the anomaly that happens and all of a sudden all americans are racist, and if you deny it, if you're white and you deny you're racist, then he brings out the implicit bias and says you're in denial about it. the sooner we can move on from this ugly chapter in american history and presidential history, it's been one of the
most race obsessed presidents in modern history, but the sooner we can move on from this, he took the healing scar of slavery and reopened it and poured in salt. people are tired of it. they voiced their opinion of it on november th. on his way out the door he want one last kick of sand in the face for the same people that elected him. many white people. >> unbelievable. gentlem gentlemen, a pleasure to have you with us. we thank you for your time. and coming up, we need your help with an important question of the day. stay with us. when heartburn hits,
