"the world is a different place after trump's win, the next album will have to be changed i accordingly." it will hopefully be out by new year's day, next year. "hannity" is next. >> sean: welcome to "hannity," we will have many guests tonight. the press conference today was the single greatest beat down of the alt-left, abusively biased, mainstream media in the history of the country. and that is tonight's opening monologue. president-elect donald trumpmp took on the press after the so-called journalists at cnn and buzzfeed expose themselves to be nothing more than political hacks. they ran wild with unconfirmed, completely unfounded allegations that president like donald trump has been compromised by russia
and that they hold embarrassing personal and financialal information about him. he addressed it at the press. take a look. >> it should have never been written, it should never have been had, it certainly should have never been released. it is all fake news. it is phony stuff. it was gotten by opponents of ours, as you know, because you reported it. so do many of the other people. it was a group of opponents who got together, sick people. i think it was disgraceful. disgraceful. that the intelligence agencies allowed any information -- that turned out to be so false and fake -- out? i think it is a disgrace. i say that and i say that. and that is something that nazi germany would have done and did do. i think it is a disgrace that information that was false and fake and it never happened got released to the public. >> sean: it is a disgrace. cnn and buzzfeed should be ashamed of themselves.
this so-called dossier that was put together as opposition research, that was done by trump's political opponents. it had been out there for months. responsible media outlets stay away from it, but not over at cnn, the clinton news network. take a look. >> we have learned that the nation's top intelligence officials have reported information last week aboutof claims of russian efforts to compromise the president-elect donald trump. >> it included allegations that russian operatives claim to have compromising personal information about mr. trump. >> they're produced by a former mi6 operative with great experience in russia and the soviet union. >> it is something that's being taken very seriously and they will have to get to the bottom of it. >> sean: cnn cannot get enough of it. but today, he had to correct some of the major allegations about michael cohen, who will
join us later from the trump organization. take a look. >> michael cohen, trump's lawyer, has been out there because in report, it talks about michael cohen, trump's lawyer making a trip to the a czech republic. my reporting suggests that people did try to run that down and that they concluded that it was a different michael cohen. it was a michael cohen with a passport from another country, the same birth year, different birthdate.rt >> sean: wow, another michael cohen in the world. imagine that. once again proves my point that journalism in america is dead. i've been saying it on the air m since 2008. when it comes to the alt radical left liberal press, there is a massive double standard. they will push fake news stories about president-elect trump, but they never even bothered to ask about or look into president obama's very troubling past.
the media asks barack obama onli one single time and i fed the question to george stephanopoulos about his relationship with the unrepentant bill ayres, even though obama launched his political career in his living room, giving speeches to him and they didn't care. that was obama and for 20 years, no problem. he attended the church of gd c america, america's chickens have come home to roost. he listens to reverend jeremiah wright and they turned a blind eye to all of this? obama embracing the tactics of leftists? this is only a few examples. they didn't do their job in 2007 and 2008. if donald trump had done any of those things and had any of those connections, that would have been on the front page of any newspaper, would be all over tv news for months. just like cnn tried to attack trump, at the press conference earlier today, you remember any instance when barack obama was treated like this by the
left-wing media? take a look. >> since you are attacking us, can you give us a question? >> go ahead, go ahead. no, not you, not to you. >> you are attacking our news organization. can you give us a chance to ask a question? can you state categorically -- >> don't be rude. don't be rude. no, i'm not going to give you a question. you are fake news. >> sean: and then he said, that's not right. you're going to lecture the president-elect of the united states? cnn, they are not always that aggressive. who now works for the clinton news network, he was drooling over president obama after his first 100 days with these softball questions. >> during these first 100 days,e what has surprised you the most about this office, enchanted you the most about serving,
humbling, and troubled you the most? >> let me write this down. what was the first one? >> surprised, troubled, enchanted. and humbled. >> sean: enchanted, really? ignore these people if that is how they're going to treat you, they don't deserve the access they think they deserve. these are the same people, they were caught red-handed openly colluding with the clinton campaign to help her win the white house and to beat you. we're going to put up all the examples on the screen in a minute. the media has proven they are incapable of treating trump or any republican fairly. what we saw from cnn and buzzfeed, it should serve as a dire warning to the incoming trump administration. the media desperately wanted clinton to win, and now they're going to try to destroy the
president-elect, president-to-be donald trump. my advice tonight is be prepared because it will be plenty of other takedown of events coming from this honest press over the next four years. they are only getting started. joining us now with reaction, "the new york times" bestseller, fox news contributor newt gingrich. i remember before you get youer came speaker, but in the ensuing weeks before you became speaker, before he even did a thing. you were the gingrich that stole christmas. and they had what, tiny tim with a broken crutch? didn't they? >> yeah, that was "time" magazine. i was the grinch that stole christmas on "newsweek." i was the dr. seuss figure. >> sean: and you hadn't even taken office. what did you think of the press
conference today? >> i think there are a couple of big lessons here that i think sean spicer is going to look at very carefully. in baseball, hockey, basketball, if certain players behave inappropriately, you kick them out of the game. in hockey, it is fairly common to bench them for a certain amount of time.e i think the way acosta behaved for cnn, have him suspended for 60 days. send someone else. to all the other reporters, they are going to be real limits. when you get beyond those limits, you ain't going to be there. they shouldn't put up with this. it's bad for the country. i also think that dan coats, the dude who nominated the director of national intelligence will go in and bring in a couple of outsiders and really dig through howg politicized, how intellectually corrupt and dishonest the senior levels of
the intelligence community have become. i mean, in my lifetime, i can't remember as a public documentav that the intelligence community produced. not some lakes, but they are giving the next president of the united states pure garbage. >> sean: we watched the president, barack obama, last night give this revisionism in history about his record last night. i came on the air with facts and figures. but i was the only media outlet to do that. and told the american people the truth. nobody vetted him in 2007 and 2008 aggressively as i did. it's like i'm doing their job. nobody tells the truth about all the broken promises and any of his record. do we have an informational crisis and how should donald trump deal with it?
>> part of it is, you have a news media today, which fits in an essay on intellectual idiot. why would you expect people who don't know any history to bexp able to report on history? why would you expect people who are shallow and report only today's exciting story to be followed by tomorrow's exciting story to have any sense of depth or any sense of background? i think part of this is a real crisis of our education system and what has happened in general to our media. but in addition, the white house press has the self-importance that the trump team have better figure out howow to break up. there are 500 some members of the white house press corps. they don't have the same five, six, seven people dominate every single day. they can rotate them.an they can also expand privileges to reporters from out of town. they would be a lot more
courteous, they will be a lot more responsible, they wouldn'tt have this adversarial, i mean, m what kind of reporter believes that they are the equal president of the united states and they get to yell at him and lecture the way we saw in today's press conference? it is absurd. is going to keep going on until steps are taken to remind people that there is one person who won the presidency. that is donald j. trump. there are a lot of people who are voyeurs who are watching the one person who won the president. they are not equals. we've got to go back tode understanding they ain't equals. >> sean: while we were talking about the truth of what really happened, which will be wiped out in pretty short order, let me give you a preview of the w foreign coverage. i would argue it didn't even go away for eight years. take a look. >> he was played off stage tonight by the bruce springsteen song, "land of hope and dreams."
that largely summarized most of his speech tonight. >> he was soaring, it was as good a speech as this. but of course that was before, it is after. it's harder to do it after. >> i think his whole speech was poignant in a way and very graceful for a president of united states to exit. >> sean: add to that, wikileaks and all of these major news organizations colluding with hillary clinton. these are significant problems and a truth has now been exposed. journalism is dead. did donald trump bury them today? >> he didn't bury them today but i think he certainly began to draw the line for the fight that is coming. you don't have to think of "the new york times" or cnn or any of these people as more news organizations, they are mostly propaganda organizations. they are going to be have to trump everything will day of hil
presidency.g he needs to understand that that is the case. so does sean spicer in speaking for him. they simply need to go out there and understand they have it in their power. to set the terms of this dialogue. they can close down the elite press, they can create totally new venues for employing the american people. they can go to facebook and to youtube and to skype and they can have average citizens asking questions. you'd have a much richer dialogue if you broke up the monopoly of the elite news media ants this kind of just added to that they have that they have the right to yell at the president of the united states. as you point out, they never did to obama. because after all, he was there -- >> sean: he was enchanted. >> that scene is hysterical. that could be in a bad movie.
>> sean: [laughs] a bad movie. and i get criticized. unbelievable. mr. speaker, thanks for joining us. tonight, right here on "hannity." >> michael cohen of the trump organization was in prague? it turned out to be of different michael cohen. it is a disgrace what took place, it is a disgrace and i think they ought to apologize t. start with. >> sean: will the real michael cohen please stand up? michael cohen is owed an apology. w he will join us next. much more as we continue straight ahead. per roll more "doing chores for dad" per roll more "earning something you love" per roll

u.s. director of national intelligence said he spoke to president-elect donald trump tonight about recent media reports regarding last friday's briefing. james clapper said he felt profound dismay, and trump agrees that they are externally corrosive to national security. clapper also said the document claiming russia has compromised information on the president-elect is a u.s. intelligent community product, and that he doesn't believe that the leaks came from within the intelligence community. earlier today and his first news conference since july, press the elect trump blasted news organizations that have published the material last night. i am jack ibanez, now back to "hannity" for all your headline headlines. you're watching the most powerful name in news. fox news channel.
>> sean: welcome back to "hannity." during his press conference today, pressing elect trump took aim at cnn and buzzfeed for covering and on verified storyr. about mr. trump and his alleged ties to russia. it claimed that trump's lawyer michael cohen met with kremlin representatives in prague in august of 2016. one small, little, itty bitty problem. michael cohen has never been to prague. ever. here is what the president-elect had to say about this earlier today. >> as far as buzzfeed, which is a feeling pile of garbage, writing it? i think they are going to suffer the consequences. they already are. as far as cnn going out of their way to build it up? and by the way, we just found out, michael cohen, he is a very talented lawyer, he is a good lawyer, my friend. it is just reported that it wasn't this michael cohen that we are talking about. so all night long, it is michael cohen. i said, i want to see your passport. he brings his passport to my office. i say hey, wait a minute, he didn't leave the country.
he wasn't out of the country. they had michael cohen of the trump organization was in prague. it turned out to be a different michael cohen. it is a disgrace what took place. it is a disgrace. i think they ought to apologize to start with, michael cohen. >> sean: earlier today i spoke with him all about this and he said this.ta joining us now, executive vice president and special counsel to donald trump, michael cohen's with us. in my allowed to look at this? i do want to joke about it because it is serious in your life. this is your passport. you're watching this unfold. i got a text from a friend of mine. are you watching cnn? they are going insane. and then this whole thing unfolds. you are dragged through it all through the night last night.e. you are a private guy. we are friends, i know you. this is not comfortable for you. >> it is not comfortable but it am okay with it personally because it benefits mr. trump and i will do anything to protect mr. trump, his family,
now vice president elect mike pence. i am okay with it personally. the problem is that it affected my family, it affected my wife, my in-laws, and that is not okay. i believe that cnn and buzzfeed and others owe them a serious apology. there is an old expression. where do you go to get your reputation? you know where you have to go? to be a donald trump press release. >> sean: that was pretty amazing of you. >> thank you donald trump for what he did, because without his help, who would have thought that there may have been more than two michael cohen's in this world? >> sean: i know you for a long time. let's go back to yesterday. you got called by mr. trump and mr. trump asked you were you
ever in prague? and your answer was -- >> never. i have never been in prague. so he said michael, i. really need to know. i said mr. trump, i've never been to prague. he said to me, okay. i said, do you want to see my passport? he said, yeah, do you mind if i see it? i said of course, you are the president-elect. >> sean: i don't mean to laugh but these people, i did an opening monologue just in the last segment about how journalism is dead. it is buried. and fake news, last night, i retweeted your tweet. with the passport. and you know what people were writing? >> so many people hate me. >> sean: people are saying so, it's not opened. >> with all due respect to those haters, do you really think i was going to open up the passport and allow them to see my i.d. number?
next thing i will be trying to leave the country for whatever the reason might be, and what will happen? someone will have already duplicated it with my i.d. i have been the subject of personal attacks and the last thing i need is have somebody with my passport number on top of everything else. >> sean: you and i had ay discussion lastop week. and i said these words to you. i said, the media and the left want to destroy donald trump. what he is doing, if he is able to fulfill his agenda. he is opening up a raw nerve in d.c. that means the immediate establishment, the democratic establishment and even the republican establishment. when he talks about draining the swamp and fundamental core changes to government, this threatens who they are and what they have done and the way they have done it all of these years. >> their goal is to malign a very good man who i truly believe will go down in history
if they leave him alone as the best president. >> sean: michael, they are not going to leave him alone. >> i will make sure they leave him alone. he is a good man and so is vice president elect pence. they are a great team together. they're going to do exactly what they say. they will strengthen the military, secure our borders, create jobs -- >> sean: if he keeps all of his words, he will go down as a great president. let me go back though. you show him the passport. you are in los angeles. i have to give a little insight here. your son -- >> by the way, you knew i was in los angeles. >> sean: your son is a top major league baseball pitching recruit. he throws 98 miles an hour. >> 95. >> sean: to me, it's 98. i wouldn't want to catch it. we looked at the time frame and we went over this yesterday, you were out with your son. >> how my supposed to argue when i'm telling you that this was where i was at? they are claiming, youou weren't
there. i said, yes i was. i was there. i was in los angeles. well, why were you there? what is the difference why i was there? i was not in prague.ng they claim that they have photos of me with some russian government people. i said, let me see the photos. >> sean: did you see any hookers when you were in prague? all the fawning coverage as i discussed in the last segment oa obama and this horrible treatment of donald trump, the president-elect today, i think this is just a preview of coming attractions. how do you analyze -- what is the best strategy for the incoming administration to take? >> very tough question. you don't know where it's coming from and who is lobbing these attacks against him. fortunately, mr. trump has a significant number of people, i like to keep myself in that circle, of extremely loyal people.
we will do what is necessary tom protect him and the office of the presidency. on top of that, this man has assembled with the entire team a significant group of incredible people who will help him in order to get his agenda accomplished. including ivanka and jared who are going to play key roles. >> sean: they are trying to attack him too. look at what they did to ivanka when she wore a bracelet on s "60 minutes." somebody tweeted out. >> it's so wrong on so many levels. we don't say stuff like this on the golden globes. where they attacked the president. >> sean: up next on "hannity." >> if putin likes donald trump, i consider that an asset, not a liability.
we have a horrible relationship with russia. russia can help us fight isis. >> sean: president-elect trump says putin liking him might not be so bad after all. we'll have reaction on that from laura ingraham. also coming up later tonight. >> obamacare is the democrats' problem. we are going to take the problem off the shelves for them. >> sean: democrats, they better get ready. trump says he will be good on his promise to repeal and replace obamacare.ra and later, we will get reaction from herman cain and anthony scaramucci as we continue on this busy news night, on "hannity." constipated? trust number one doctor recommended dulcolax use dulcolax tablets for gentle overnight relief suppositories for relief in minutes and stool softeners for comfortable relief of hard stools. dulcolax, designed for dependable relief ♪ ♪

>> sean: welcome back to "hannity." during his extensive press conference, donald trump responded to questions about what u.s.-russia relations would be like under his administration. let's take a look. >> if putin likes donald trump, i consider that an asset, not a liability. we have a horrible relationship with russia, russia can help us
fight isis. i don't know that i am going to get along with lot of you put in. i hope i do. but there is a good chance i won't. and if i don't, do you honestlyh believe that hillary would be tougher on putin than me? does anyone in this room really believe that? but i won't be given a like hil. here, press this piece of plastic. the guy looked at her like, what is she doing? there is no reset button. we are either going to get along, or we won't. russia, china, japan, mexico. all countries will respect us far more than they do under past administrations. >> sean: and you remember when hillary clinton presented russia with the reset button. take a look. >> i wanted to present you with a little gift with each represents what president obama and vice president biden and i have been saying. and that is, we want to reset our relationship.
so we will do it together. [laughter] >> thank you very much. >> you are very welcome. we worked hard to get the right russian word. did we do it right? >> you did it wrong. >> sean: you may remember when barack obama said, hey, tell vladimir -- watch this. >> after my election i have more questions. >> sean: i will tell vladimir. ari fleischer, editor-in-chief, fox news contributor, why are you laughing during my show?
>> then he looks and says it is wrong. you got it wrong. >> sean: think about this. >> it's jv. it's embarrassing. trump was right about that today. he is going to do it better than they will. it's probably ridiculous. he's going to come in with a pragmatic -- i imagine -- in a very practical point of view in dealing with russia. they are not a friend. they are an adversary but wein also work with our adversaries on issues. maybe we'll be able to work with them on things that actually help our allies and america. what is so wrong with that? bush wanted to reset with russiy and i would say failed. and so did obviously obama. maybe trump will be able to do a slightly better job. the idea that trump is going to botch it? obama botched it. >> sean: all right, so you saw how they treated donald trump today. i don't remember barack obamaa
being treated that way. they were a little rougher i think on george bush than obama but not this bad. >> i will give you a direct answer to that. but george bush never sought to reset with russia. he always dealt with russia the way they were, which is a strong ally of ours after september 11th until they essentially became a giant gas tank and putin got wealthy and greedy. bush dealt with him as such. but in terms of the news conference, you nailed it. i just never saw the press treat barack obama with such roughness. nobody treated george bush like that. just face it. the press is hostile to donald trump, they always will be. and he is happy to return the favor.. he actually has the upper hand in that relationship. >> sean: i thought it was a knock out and very entertaining. i enjoyed every second of it.
i thought it was fun. which of donald trump to going forward? should he push them out of the white house? should he bypass them, laura? >> when the press is doing its job, it should be a cheerleader for the administration. it should be an honest broker. and be a check on power. that's what the press does for both parties, equally.y. but that they have to occupy tha white house, i never bought that. the press should -- >> sean: and colluding with hillary -- >> they could be brought in for press conferences if that is necessary, when it's merited. it could be over at an executive office building, or jackson plays are one of the other federal buildings, they did that they have to camp out at the white house all day, i never understood that. i don't know what the purpose of just having them hang out at the white house is. >> sean: this phony pony show that goes on every day, is it time to put that to pasture? >> i would take it off of live tv.
it's become a tv show where people posture on both sides of the podium, frankly. but right port is up to peacock and posture. you get packed mentality. that's all designed design fore camera. there's also print reporters who wouldn't like to do a sober serious job. they wouldn't mind if the briefing was taken off life w t. >> sean: should you be banned? >> i will not be press secretary, who determines who can commit to the white house. it's a slippery slope. you will fight with all kinds of reporters when you are the press secretary. it comes with the territory. but the government should not be the one to decide you are a legitimate news organization so you should come in, you aren't legitimate you won't be allowed in. i am uncomfortable with the government making thatu' call. >> sean: ari, i know you're being, at least in the press, i think he would probably within a
week be throwing things from the podium. >> no, i would have fun with it. you have to fun with the process. but it is not an easy thing to do day in and day out.t. i think it's getting better day by day. he's done a good job today, seat spicer. today was a tough day. it came out as a big win. >> sean: tonight, up next, on "hannity." >> obamacare is the democrats problem. we are going to take the problet off the shelves for them. >> sean: president-elect trump, earlier today he promised to repeal and replace obamacare. doing it simultaneously. up next, we have a reaction from herman cain and anthony scaramucci. david clarke will join us. he is mad about how jeff gsessions was treated. see your lexus dealer.
have you any wool?eep, no sir, no sir, some nincompoop stole all my wool sweaters, smart tv and gaming system. luckily, the geico insurance agency recently helped baa baa with renters insurance. everything stolen was replaced. and the hooligan who lives down the lane was caught selling the stolen goods online. visit geico.com and see how easy it is to switch and save on renters insurance. >> sean: welcome back to "hannity." earlier today during the press k conference, president-elect donald trump was asked about obamacare. and this growing pressure to repeal and replace at the same time, here is what trump said
earlier today. >> we are going to be very proud what we put forth, having to do with health care. obamacare is a complete and total disaster. it will be repealed, and replace, it will be essentially simultaneously. it will be various segments, but will most likely be on the same day or same week but probably the same day. could be the same hour. obamacare is the democrats' problem. we are going to take the problem off the shelves for them. we are doing them a tremendous service by doing it. we're going to have awe health care that is far less expensive and far better. >> sean: joining us now withar reaction, herman cain and trump transition team executive, committee member anthony scaramucci.
all of the inaugural ball tickets, you are in charge of. i apologize. >> keep going. keep it up, sean. >> sean: we are friends. look at, herman his ticket now. >> no, herman got his ticket already. >> sean: there are nine separate plans that are out there for replacement. they are very similar, but to me, there are three very specific components. on top of affordability, tagging your planned job to john. competition buyingb it across state lines. right now it is illegal to get a catastrophic plan if you are a young person. it is ridiculous. in other words, you're healthy, generally if you have a heart attack, cancer, an accident, if we have that, if we have health savings accounts and have cooperatives like in wichita, kansas, does that solve our problem?
>> some of it. there's gotta be a big introduction to the way we deliver medicine to patients. every industry is at an s curve where you've gotten the delivery of service to be better at a lower price. data transmission on your phonei airlines, you pick the industry. once you do you regulate the industry a little bit, you can deliver the servicesdu more cheaply. another thing that has never been focused on is the supply side of. we've got to figure out way to empower people that want to go into medicine. so that we can match the 40 million people that are on the plan with more doctors, sean. >> sean: very comprehensive. free-market solutions will result in better care, lower prices. >> absolutely. hasn't that happened throughout 5,000 years of capitalism? think about what happened during the reagan administration. over 32 years later, we've got data transmission down to fractions on a share. versus where they were when you and i were making collect calls from europe to our parents.
>> sean: well said. y >> that's where the president-elect wants to be. he said something very powerful. he is actually helping theec democrats because this is an albatross on their necks. >> sean: i'm sure they're going to say thank you to trump. they're going to send him roses and chocolates in the morning. the media too. herman cain, millions lost their doctors and plans. no family saved $2500 a year. according to kaiser health is $5400 increase, that does not include 2017 increases. on the political side, that is one question. but what is the most workable solution from your perspective? >> from my perspective, what people are going to be surprised of is that the republican plan as it evolves is going to be much simpler than that whole monstrosity, that disaster called obamacare.
the democrats tactic is to try to spread fear when in fact, you can repeal and replace. the trump administration is going to replace it, with f something that is much simpler and fairer. >> sean: i thought it was going to take a year. did you think that? >> may be in political terms it will take a year. but he has not sat down withu president-elect donald trump. >> sean: yesterday he said he would do it at the same time. but a week ago, he was saying we would do it sometime this year. >> well, then, you also have the other possibility, sean, that you want to exceed expectations. you don't want to set the time frame so short that then you go over it because those vultures out there that are on a witch hunt will use that to hit the republicans. >> sean: attacking the media again when you call them vultures. i heard you. >> i am attacking the media. c they are so blatant with it, sean.
>> sean: as soon as you got out of the race, no more stories about herman cain. nope. it's amazing how brutal they are. good to see you both. happy new year to both. >> i'm going to sean's barber next time. >> sean: are you making fun my haircut? up next on "hannity." >> i don't feel like waiting a year and a year and a half to build. mexico will reimburse us and they will reimburse us for the cost of the wall. >> sean: president-elect donald trump says he will start working on the border wall as soon as he is inaugurated. up next, we will get reaction from david clarke, who was also angry about the treatment of jeff sessions. clarke, who was o angry about the treatment of
and they're absolutely right. they say that it's hot... when really, it's scorching. and while some may say the desert is desolate... we prefer secluded. what is the desert? it's absolutely what you need right now. absolutely scottsdale. >> we are going to build a wall. i could wait about a year and a half or two ago, but it will start immediately after i get into office. i don't want tot wait. i don't feel like waiting a year or a year and have to start building. mexico in some form, and there are many different forms, will reimburse us. and they will reimburse us for the cost of the wall. by the way, mexico has been so nice, so nice. i respect the government of mexico.
i respect the people of mexico. i love the people of mexico. don't blame them for what's happened. i don't blame them for taking advantage of the united states. what i say is we should not have allowed that to happen. it is not going to happen anymore. >> sean: that was president-elect trump saying that he will deal with mexico. milwaukee county sheriff, david clarke. he said the same thing, you know, at some point, if people keep crossing our border, you got to blame yourself. if you get hacked, you have to blame yourself. it's our job to fix it. do you see those things getting done? >> i like his sense of urgency about it. he corrected one of the reporters today who called it a fence. he said it is not going to be a fence, it's going to be a wall. you need a barrier, congress will drag their feet if he allows us to go on to long past his first 100 days, or past the first six months, congress will put this on the back burner.
i'm glad he is keeping this front and center.x it has been the hallmark of his campaign. >> sean: i asked him numerous times, you don't expect mexicoon to give you a check. and he said of course not. this is how it is going to happen. some people have questioned the idea of appropriating the money in the first place, but that is what he is always said that ultimately they will pay. let me ask you about cory booker. he says about jeff sessions, i feel so honored to work with him, celebrating civil rights activist. i thought that was a good thing they both did together. and then he testifies today thenst jeff sessions and most tactical way imaginable. did you think he was trying to audition like barack obama? with the lofty rhetoric. i thought it was so phony. >> i thought it was disgraceful on the behalf of cory booker. i've met him, he's got more class than that. he lied about jeff sessions. he lied about statistics all in an attempt to like you said,
audition for 2020. but that was not the time to do this. he calls jeff sessions a friend. if he saw the opening ofof that, he just stabbed him in the back for the rest of his presentation. it was phony, he is a poor man in terms of acting because he just doesn't have it. >> sean: wow. are you going to be joining the administration? >> that is up to donald trump. >> sean: that it was a pretty a quick answer with a little t more cadence than i am used to with you. i am suspicious now, sheriff. thank you for being with us. and happy new year. coming up, we have a very important question of the day. that's next.
has been a struggle. i considered all my options with my doctor, who recommended once-daily toujeo®. now i'm on the path to better blood sugar control. toujeo® is a long-acting insulin from the makers of lantus®. it releases slowly, providing consistent insulin levels for a full 24 hours, proven full 24-hour blood sugar control, and significant a1c reduction. and along with toujeo®, i'm eating better and moving more. toujeo® is a long-acting, man-made insulin used to control high blood sugar in adults with diabetes. it contains 3 times as much insulin in 1 milliliter as standard insulin. don't use toujeo® to treat diabetic ketoacidosis, during episodes of low blood sugar, or if you're allergic to insulin. allergic reaction may occur and may be life threatening. don't reuse needles or share insulin pens, even if the needle has been changed. the most common side effect is low blood sugar,
which can be serious and life threatening. it may cause shaking, sweating, fast heartbeat, and blurred vision. check your blood sugar levels daily while using toujeo®. injection site reactions may occur. don't change your dose or type of insulin without talking to your doctor. tell your doctor if you take other medicines and about all your medical conditions. insulins, including toujeo®, in combination with tzds (thiazolidinediones) may cause serious side effects like heart failure that can lead to death, even if you've never had heart failure before. don't dilute or mix toujeo® with other insulins or solutions as it may not work as intended and you may lose blood sugar control, which could be serious. toujeo® helps me stay on track with my blood sugar. ask your doctor about toujeo®. at godaddy, our goal is to let's chat in football terms. this is the goal post. the end zone. the goal of every team. we know you have goals. like getting exposure for your idea or business. with godaddy website builder, you can easily create an awesome mobile-friendly, get you more exposure website. we call that...a website builder touchdown.

go to facebook.com/seanhannity, @seanhannity on twitter. we love hearing from you. thank you for being with us, we'll see you back here tomorrow . >> bill: "the o'reilly factor" is on tonight. >> can you give us a question? >> don't be rude. >> can you give us a question? >> you are fake news. >> bill: donald trump lashing out at cnn and his press conference today. it is a complicated situation and talking points will deal with what mr. trump told the country this afternoon. >> i think it is a disgrace, that information that was false and fake and never happened got released to the public. >> bill: wow unsubstantiated allegations against donald trump and his campaign were reported yesterday. bernie goldberg on the ethics of that. >> i will be the greatest jobs producer that god ever created. and i mean that. >> bill: also, lou dobbs and
whether the president-elect can fulfill his promises to stop companies from moving jobs abroad. caution, you are about to enter the "no spin zone" ." "the factor" begins right now. ♪ hi, i am bill o'reilly. thanks for watching us tonight. donald trump's press conference, that is a subject of this evening's "talking points" memo. new york city today, many major points were made. so, let's run them down for you. the issue of fake news, fabricated reports about donald trump and other public figures was front and center. the issue began yesterday when buzzed. an internet site humor released a so-called report that attacked donald trump and a very personal way. and also replied that his campaign has a good dealings with russia. with no evidence to put forth in
those assertions. most news organizations, including fox, stayed away. but earlier, cnn did pick up the general thread of the story and that angered mr. trump. he was also agitated that u.s. intelligence agencies in the past have leaked stuff. >> i think it is a disgrace. and i say that, and i say that, and that is something that germany would have done that and did do. i think it is a disgrace that information that was false and fake and never happened got released to the public, as far as buzzfeed, which is a failing pile of garbage, writing it, i think they are going to suffer the consequences. they already are. as far as cnn coming out of their way to build it up, -- >> bill: a few minutes later, a cnn reporter tried to ask mr. trump a question. >> go ahead. >> mr. president-elect? >> go ahead. >> no, not you. >> can you give us --
>> you're attacking our news organization. >> can you give us a chance to ask a question? >> go ahead. quiet. she's asking a question. don't be rude. don't be rude. >> can you give us a question? >> don't be rude. i am not going to give you a question. you are fake news. >> bill: cnn has issued a statement saying cnn's decision to publish carefully sourced reporting about the operations of our government is vastly different than buzzfeed's decision to publish unsubstantiated memos. that statement continues but you get the idea. the press and donald trump will be an ongoing soap opera. there's no doubt about it. as for policy, the national media still very interested in the russia hacking deal. so, mr. trump addressed it. >> the democratic national committee was totally open to be hacked. they did a very poor job.
they could have had hacking defense, which we had. and i will give reince priebus credit because when he saw what was happening in the world and with this country, he went out and went to various firms and ordered a very, very strong hacking defense. >> bill: it seems mr. trump is acknowledging that russia did hack into the dnc. also, abc news asked mr. trump about putin. >> if putin likes donald trump, i consider that an asset, not a liability. if we have horrible relationship with russia. now, i don't know that i'm going to get along with vladimir putin. i hope i do. but there there's a good chancy won't. and if i don't, do you honestly believe that hillary would be tougher on putin then me? is anybody in this room really believe that? >> then, it was on to obamacare, which, as we reported last night, is toast. >> we are going to be repealed and replaced him complicated
stuff. we are going to get a health bill passed, we are going to get health care taken care of in this country. you have deductibles that are so high. >> bill: what the republicans propose in a place of obamacare will be a major story. much of the press conference.with donald trump's business deals. putting a lot of stuff in trust and handing operations of his company over to his two sons. lou dobbs will have some thoughts on not coming up. but then, he got back to the trump controversies front and center, the wall on the southern border. >> mexico, and some form, there are many different forms, will reimburse us and they will reimburse us for the cost of the wall. that will happen, whether it is a tax or whether it is a payment,that it is a payment. but it will happen. >> bill: mr. trump says he will begin building the wall shortly after he takes office on january 20th.
mexico also got more bad news because the president-elect once again said he is going to institute a so-called border tax which would punish american companies operating in mexico and other countries to try to shift their products back to the usa. >> bill: there will be a major r tax on these companies that are leaving and getting away with murder and if our politicians had what it takes, they would have done this years ago, and he would have millions more workers right now. >> bill: so, all in all, there was a lot of substance in the press conference today. mr. trump's demeanor was direct. i saw no difference in him then when he was campaigning. he stated his case with authority. he was blonde, continues to say he'll do what he promised. as for the press, they are still fixated on the election. if there is no question in my mind that the hunt, that is what it is, a hunt, for a trump-russia connection during the campaign remains very intense and active.
some of the national media wanting to delegitimize the vote. at this point, that is the only way they can do it, linking the trump campaign to putin. summing up, donald trump helped himself today, but he better watch his back. not since richard nixon has a national press corporation and so determined to bring someone down. and that's the memo. next on "the rundown," more analysis on the press conference. john roberts will give us the inside story on trump not recognizing cnn. bernie goldberg and whether the questioning today was fair and balanced. lou dobbs on mr. trump's claim that he is already been very effective on the jobs front. geraldo rivera on the fake news controversy. all of those reports coming your way shortly.
♪ >> bill: personal story segments and i pray donald trump or the american economy. so far, the president-elect has topped a number of jobs from going abroad. he also said he will create an amazing economic comeback in the u.s. now, lou dobbs. i didn't quite understand the fiat chrysler situation. this is the latest, the president-elect has stopped free at chrysler from doing what? >> they got them investing in this country again. instead of moving deep offshore, they are going to be investing here. it is not a large amount, in terms of -- >> bill: they are going to invest a million dollars to modernize two plans rather than going to mexico? another pretty good bacteria? >> a great victory, combined cot with toyota, $10 billion, ford motor. these numbers are starting to build up in terms of jobs saved. >> bill: you're a big capitalist guy, right? you have money buried in your backyard, one of those guys? trump is a strong armed guy,
strong-armed in these companies, threatening these companies. does that bother you at all? >> the language that you used is so violent. [laughter] >> bill: that is what he is doing. if you put it down, he will pay the tax coming back. pretty strong arm. >> he is sitting down and he is talking -- >> bill: he is not sitting. he is pounding the lectern. he is not setting. >> is cobb job -- >> bill: job what? >> jawboning. >> bill: he's threatening. >> he wants to take these things -- >> bill: is a threat. does that bother you? >> as a matter of fact, the other day, donohue, the height of the chamber of commerce is talking about mr. trump intervening in the economy. he would be more comfortable if you weren't so enthusiastic about it. as if tom donohue, corporate america's economy, not the people's economy.
>> bill: so, some people, you would say, some capitalists are uneasy about his aggressive approach. but it seems to be working to some extent? >> yes. it's exactly the right thing to do. >> bill: here's another thing i didn't understand. trump has some concerns abroad. he makes money abroad. okay? >> also legal. >> bill: the money comes back to the usa. now, he has to figure out what to do with the money and now that he is president. >> president-elect trump has decided, we are announcing today, that he is going to voluntarily donate all profits from foreign government payments made to his hotels to the united states treasury. this way, it is the american people who will profit. >> bill: all right, so come he's got golf courses in scotland and ireland. if he makes a profit, the money comes back, he is giving it to the feds, right? >> correct. these hotel rooms, whatever their profit margin is, that is going to result in a check to the treasury. i think it is a brilliant move.
the point of fact, he stressed, his attorney stress, there is nothing in either law or the constitution -- >> bill: he didn't actually do it. >> he is doing the right thing. >> bill: he doesn't have an enormous amount of stuff overseas. it's just, it's targeted stuff. >> is significant. >> bill: it's a p.r. gesture. >> it's a p.r. gesture and it is also 14 14 14 businesses that d to be relevant. >> bill: 14. that is what he's got abroad. the ireland golf course, i have been there. i am not a golfer but it is beautiful. it's a beautiful place. he's losing money on that. >> no check for the treasury on that. >> bill: it will be interesting to see after the first year how much money rose into it. it's because you got to think it is a pretty good branding operation, to be president of the united states. i think business will pick up around the world. >> bill: you know, it is interesting, if he had lost, he would've taken a pounding. now, his hotel in d.c. is booked
until you and i are dead. i think that is how long. >> that's a long time. >> bill: that's a long time at least for you. all right, lou dobbs, everybody. how's it going at the fox business channel? you guys are kicking cnbc is butt. >> and every other parts of their anatomy. >> bill: good trumps evil. how is the movie industry going? to you care? as hollywood falling apart? it might be. miller is next. ♪
>> bill: thanks for staying with us. i am bill o'reilly. last year, the american movie industry grossed more than $11 billion, a record. when you watch the war chose, many of the films nominated are small independents that few people have seen. there is no question, the industry is not nearly as glamorous as as it used to be. after that the political component as hollywood is very anti-trump. joining us now dennis miller. so, when we are on the road, we talk about old movies all the time. "godfather" saga.
"casablanca." classic movies like this that were well-crafted. you know, i don't see them anymore. these movies that are nominated are good movies but they are niche movies. not to the big public. the big public gets the dinosaurs and the cartoons and stuff like that. so, as hollywood falling apart? >> no, i don't think so, bill. i don't see these films enough to know. i am a turner classic movie guy. >> bill: me too. >> i have seen one film this year, "lala land," it was like a turner classic movie. it was great. would it won things, i didn't watch the awards because hanks didn't get nominated for "ali." i thought that was really solid. i wasn't prone to watch the awards. i don't watch award shows anymore because i read too much politics during the day and i want to escape from it at night. oddly enough, i now watch press conferences for entertainment and i watch award shows for politics. if you think it was bad at the golden globes, wait until the
oscars, billy, i have told you in the past, they made the oscars a statue. it was modeled after our friend vladimir putin. i've asked for a split screen of that. >> bill: there it is. very good. >> he is the oscar! >> bill: 20 million people watched the golden golden globg audience. i think "lala land," i haven't seen it. i think it will won best picture. you saw it. you liked it. i think the majority of americans are going to it until it comes on netflix or amazon or one of those. they are not going to go out to see "lala land." >> billy, let me tell you something about the event the other night. i was told it is with one of my topics. i've only met meryl streep twice in my life, once at a cherry at the event, she's a sweetheart. i had dinner with her once, i was lucky. she's my favorite actors of all time! she's the best actress i've ever seen! she was a charmer.
>> bill: did you talk politics with her? >> no, we didn't. she was so cool. i got a little loaded because i was nervous around her. it was fun. but then again, bill, i don't sit in the chamber of commerce to watch them act out in slow motion a gas station scene from "zoo lander." everything is mixed up right now. i haven't seen any of these films i saw, i think one called "login" because i like the two little creatures that do the "acuna matata." by and large, i don't watch movie award shows anymore unless a friend of mine -- >> bill: hollywood is changing into a niche thing and all of that. but i am intrigued on meryl streep. you didn't invite me to that dinner? i didn't get an invite. i would have appreciated that. >> bill: >> billy, i told you ig to invite you but we had to hide my car before she we started e. >> bill: she was giving it to
you. [laughter] >> i will say this. sometimes, when they are giving protest speeches, they feel rushed. i think we have to eliminate some of the minor categories so we can let these protest speeches breathe. >> bill: so we can listen to "meet the press" on the golden globes. >>er option, too. we should have two of our trust, a new one where everyone plugs politics and that an old one, where everyone gets a dolled up. that can be the oscars. we can have another one called the felix's where everyone comes in a nice gun and gets the award i think the director and goes home. let's do it that way. >> bill: [laughs] okay, everyone in tulsa, oklahoma, is unbelievably excited. on friday night, you are going to roll into town, i'm going to run into town. and watters will be live with us. you have any advice for him and his first appearance on friday? >> you know, billy, i'm glad he is on board. god knows ticket sales have gone
through the roof. thanks for him adding. >> bill: don't tell him that. >> okay, i won't tell him that. i should have known that it was the converse consideration of you not to hint that participation back to him. i will say this. we have to razz them a little like the nfl does with rookies. we have to make him stand up during the show and sang us the alma mater. will you promise me you are there with me if we ask them? >> bill: he went to wesleyan. they're all modern as some communist song. i don't know. [laughter] >> i remember that. if i had a diploma, i would be did in the morning... >> bill: all right, we will see you on friday in oklahoma. aren't we look forward to see everyone in pennsylvania. >> thursday night, i am in fort worth. thursday night. >> bill: thursday night, fort worth. check his web site. >> i'd never do that. i got to pound this. >> bill: that's okay. you're in the area. bernie goldberg on deck. he'll talk about the media reaction to donald trump's press conference today. bernie moments
