A new story from Sean Hannity

Automatic TRANSCRIPT

Hour eight hundred nine four one Shawn you wanna be part of the program will hit the phones here in a second let let's do a little deeper dive into this hunter Biden interview on fake news CNN I I I mean he is admitting he had on non Good Morning America this morning Amy Rohrbach is doing the interview Robach I think is our name anyway so it is emitting everything that we knew about no experience if you like okay then why do you think you got on the boards what do you think you got these deals I don't know probably in retrospect I gasp maybe because I was on an Amtrak board once then that wouldn't qualify but you listen to this now if you want to know about more media bias we were discussing or James o'keefe are at at in the last half hour if you want to know more about media bias this is it because it was Donald Trump junior or Eric trump for Barron trump they'd be all over him let's play I want to get to the heart of it did you and your father ever discuss you Frank as I said the only time was after a news account it wasn't a discussion anyway there's no black to this now we never did your dad said I hope you know what you're doing if I do and I said I do and that was literally the end of our discussion why because it meant I was vice president United States there's little to nothing as a young man or as a full grown adult that that my father in some way has not influence over is it does not serve either one of us when he said I hope you know what you're doing what did he think you were doing what he read the press reports that I joined the board of reason which was a Ukrainian natural gas company and there's been a U. L. a lot of misinformation about me not about my dad nobody buys that but that buys this idea that I was on qualified to be on the board what were your qualifications to be on the board of very small well I was vice chair of the board of Amtrak for five years I was the chairman of the board of the U. and world food program I was a lawyer for boys Schiller Flexner one of the most prestigious law firms in the world you didn't have any extensive knowledge about natural gas or Ukraine itself so no but I think that I had as much knowledge as anybody else was on the board if not more in the list you gave me the reasons why you're on that for you did not list the fact that you were the son of the course yeah no I don't really think that way I think that it is impossible for me to be on any of the boards are just mention without saying that I'm the son of the vice president and six you are paid fifty thousand dollars a month for your position look on privacy is the one thing that I don't have to do is sit here and open my complete no as it relates to how much money I make a make a dinner date but it's all been reported if your last name wasn't biting do you think you would have been asked to be on the board of a response I don't know I don't know probably not I I don't think that there's a lot of things that would happen in my life that that if my last name was invited why did you leave the board in April it's a five year term not to why I think it's pretty obvious what this is your opportunity to say why well because this is what becomes a distraction because I have to sit here and answer these questions and so that's why I'm committed that I will serve on any words or I won't work directly for any foreign entities when my dad because president do you think that should be a rule across the board for any administration outlook that's the role that I'm gonna be here too do you regret being on the board to begin with no I don't regret being on the board what I regret is not taking into account that there would be a Rudy Giuliani and a and president United States that would be listening to these this ridiculous conspiracy idea which has again been completely debunked by everyone we are what we are thinking how could that not have crossed your mind you wouldn't fall just a little bit you're got like maybe this isn't a good idea to go and sit on the board of the company I said it I said you in retrospect I watched my judgment you never it never you never thought this might not look right you know what I mean human and what did I make a mistake well maybe in the in the in the grand scheme of things yeah but did I make a mistake based upon some on at the collapse absolutely not the president has repeatedly said that you received one point five billion dollars from China despite no experience in for no apparent reason obviously fact checkers have said that that is not true this is a little it has no basis in fact in anyway I have you received any money from business dealings not at all not once not once it definitely out one point five billion it's crazy they feel like they have the license to go out and say whatever they want feels to me like living in some kinds of Alice in Wonderland where here up on the real world and then you fall down the rabbit hole and you know the president she's Cheshire cat asking you questions about crazy things that they don't have any resemblance to the reality of of anything that has to do with me it's so here's the answer no one ever paid me one point five billion dollars that and if they hadn't I would not be doing this if you're free we saw you in those photos getting off of airforce two with your daughter with your father with my dad and I went there because my daughter was on the trip to it did you talk about China or your deal with China a twelve hour flight over open of course that never came your father did shake hands with Mr Lee the correct in the lobby of the hotel I don't remember but probably yeah I hope so I will be dead is my friend don Henley yeah for for almost thirteen years he was your enterprise yeah I understand certainly Amy whether I'm in New York or whether I'm in Washington DC a friend and business associate is in the hotel and my dad saying there is it inappropriate for me to have coffee with them so that I mean anything was not a mistake it was not on our what do you say to people who believe this is exactly why people hate Washington vice president's son can make money income father is doing the federal government well I I don't know what to tell you made a mistake and at the end in retrospect as related to creating any perception that that was wrong and so therefore I'm taking it off the table and I'm making that commitment hi let's see if anybody else makes a commitment but that's the commitment that I'm making in retrospect look I I I think there was poor judgment on my part is that I think that was poor judgment because I don't believe now when I look back on it I know that it was not and did nothing wrong at all however was it for judgment to be in the middle of something that is a it's it's a it's a swamp and and in many ways yeah and so I take I take them full responsibility for that so why did I do anything improper in London anyway anyway whatsoever a joint board I served honorably I didn't I focused on corporate governance I didn't have any discussions with my father before or after I joined the board as it relates to it other than that brief exchange that we had all right there you have it takes my breath away the amount of money we're talking about is insane and this I I'm I'm more shocked that they let him do that interview that ill prepared I really am alright let's get to our phones let's say the height to Jim in Texas Jim hi how are you welcome to Sean Hannity show Hey John thanks for taking my call just two quick points and I'll get off first thing like we said for so long and you said before is that none of this would have come out about the Democrats for Hillary it would not have got elected I believe that if he is not reelected it's all going to be swept away in going to the road they're just not going to put it out there and they're just afraid portal happened so I think they will just books we've been under the rug and it'll go away point two is the Republicans don't support Donald Trump why don't they support him I think it's because they're afraid that they'll be ostracized even if he gets reelected to get reelected that four years down the road and they're just a they're just afraid that that they want to stay in politics longer than that so they're just gonna they're just not gonna support and I don't see it well I was going to tell you right now things that are interesting things arm change their sickle the you know we have cycles in politics my guess is is that every trump supporter from twenty sixteen is probably more enthusiastic about voting for Donald Trump than they were in the past number one all these unfounded ridiculous attacks assaults it's never ending the second thing is he got the job he's getting the job done it's not easy to heavy left for him that he doesn't get enough help really from Republicans but he's keeping his promises and the fact that the Democrats so obviously want to undo the results of an election I think speaks volumes out only the American people gonna take well to that at all so of all the people that voted for him the last time I going to go out and vote for him again this time and then you add maybe some of the people that have benefitted under that his policies you know the seven million more Americans working seven million fewer on food stamps millions of others out of poverty I think is what is put himself in a really good position mathematically to win reelection but the only way it's going to happen is if the people rise up against this mob in the media these do nothing impeach impeach impeach Democrats and get that done for the president he won't be able to do a buy himself that will be up to we the American people to do that part I think this is an all hands on deck moment for the country I think that Elizabeth Warren destroy the economy in this country faster than you would ever imagine and I think it's a real threat to our system of governance that all of this has gone on we better get it fixed because if we don't we don't have a constitutional Republic that's my take I think I think it's the Republican senators and congressmen that I'm worried about thirty ones that are not supporting him like they should it would be one else they would be supporting him but they're afraid to support support trump the politicians I think you're right the people are going to continue to support him but the politician just are not doing what they should be doing yep all right thanks Jim appreciate it Bob Minnesota Bob how are you glad you're on board thanks for being with us hi thanks for having me on your your great Sean Paul I think people are under estimating the power of the media as far as this impeachment girls log in impeached the media will totally behind behind the effort you know and they're gonna be negative on top as usual you know as opposed to people that think that there's going to be a backlash against the Republicans I wouldn't count on that at all you know when Clinton was impeached the media was on his side so we came out smelling like a rose or this is going to be different and I think there has to be an alternate plan as far as dealing with the media because they're gonna call on no doubt about it that's just my thoughts well I don't think you're too far off I really don't Kelly Virginia how are you for having me on the show something for everyone to show up well I look young the Airways and on to beat night job I two quick points one is the big one with Adam Schiff having these secret committee meetings I think Republicans and the people get subpoenaed should use a James call me car and say I will testify behind closed doors into one first allowed to testify publicly for transparency so all Americans can hear truth and I think we need to take the public pulpit on a ship sand in going that direction of point one and point two is a knockout show last night with their toss it just it was a home run and I think CNN and the news network really need to change your name because you're not in your network to us see all land con and I think that's more a defective of them and that's why I like your I think it's.

Coming up next
