washington. it wasn't working in either party. they elected this man, the 45th resident of the united states. are awaiting donald trump. welcome to "hannity." it is a historic day in >> sean: welcome to "hannity." it's a historic day. donald j. trump is now the 45th president of the united states of america, and we are broadcasting live from the next two hours from the freedom ball. president trump will be here in just a few minutes. plus we have reaction tonight. analysis, geraldo rivera, so many others. but first tonight, joining us is somebody i admire, outspoken hollywood mega-superstar. one of my favorite actors of all time. such a good friend of mine, personal friend of mine. unlike a lot of people that work
out on the left coast, he was able to do something and stepped out alone by himself and talk about why he supports donald trump for president. john voight, my friend. how are you, sir? how are you? >> the last part of that was terrific. >> sean: it's great to see you you. you know, i saw you with so many of these people. and the loved that they showed for you not only for your great acting ability but the fact that you had stood up for donald trump when so many in your profession would not. >>an yeah. i am getting a lot of love here. >> sean: you. i'm so happy here with all the things that people are seeing on the televisionwi set. watching the parade today was an enormous thingse for me. >> >> sean: it was. also joining us is corey lewandowski. all right, funny back story. i was out there on the campaign
trail when it was donald j. trump, you, and -- that's all that was. >> i like to say, they are two guys in the plane and we had to pick two. the one that's pretty cool. >> look what happened. the country has come alive. millions of people said no more washington. donald trump's speech was so clear, so concise. the power goes back to theba people. comes out of washington and comes out of people that's what the revolution is all about. >> corey, you are not only confident, extraordinarily confident that way. very few people were where you were back at that time. i know you, so i knew it was from your heart. >> it's amazing how john, we have a lot more fronts today than we did just a few short weeks ago. everyone was a firm supporter of donald trump but the truth was, i believed in it because i heard him and i sat with him for the very first time. he said to me, i don't need to be the president. i'm going have a great night
whether i am or not. i want to change the country for very few people were where you were back at that time. and i know you, so i know it's from your heart. >> it's amazing, jon -- the trs i believed in him because i heard him and i sat with him and he said to me, i don't need to be the president. i want to change it for my generation, we have to do better. if you look at all the specifics that he's outlined in this campaign, that's where he house to start doing tomorrow and on monday. that's what the american people deserve. >> sean: i would argue if he follows through on that nouthann and these are the things we talked about. when did you come on board with donald trump? >> i came on pretty early, sean. i was fortunate. i have very good people around me. you being one of them. i saw some things happening. we all felt so much needed to be done. we were not above the understanding of the american people. the american people knew a great majority we were going in the wrong direction. something seriously had to be done. >> sean: i wasti telling tucker carlson, this is the forgotten man and woman election. he mentioned it today in his speech. you can't have 95 million americans out of work, you can'.
have 43 million on food stamps, you can't have the lowest home ownership rate and 51 years and doubled the debt in the process and say things are going well. i think i was a big part of it. he did mention himself much today. >> these weren't statistics, these weren't real people. if you went across the country as i did at different times, you met these people. if you really had your eyes open, you knew what was going to happen. >> sean: i think there is a distinct -- it's a night to celebrate tonight, but going forward, donald trump will face is this republican establishment against him, democratic establishment, media establishment. by the way, like cnn over there. you know what it is? >> the political world, it doesn't want change. they make a very good living by making no change. what does that mean? will make a bill, make sure it doesn't actually get done. that's notn' donald trump. what he said it was normally
take six weeks, six months, six years, six hours, six seconds and he's going to see that with the executive orders he's going to sign, the cabinet that's going to come in. he'sng going to empower these people to go and change the way washington works. that includes saving hundreds of millions and billions of dollars on spending where we are getting killed because as the american government becausego we don't negotiate. >> sean: it's interesting. in the last couple of weeks, i watch the republicans, and they are talking about, let's advance the debt ceiling $9.7 trillion. and then they will or talking about bringing their marks back. maybe we'll do it within the next year on each one of those issues, trump said 10% cut, 20% cut. >>0% he's got this way of deali. and i don't understand it exactly. a certain personality that he has. and i amt in all of awe of it. >> sean: hang on. guys, if i may interrupt you,
the vice president of the united states mike pence is entering the room. we are at the freedom ball, by thed. way, at washington, d.c. after governor penn's pence and his wife take you know what's amazing, everybody has their phoneen out. >> look at this. you should take a picture of that. >> we are, aren't we? [band playing "hail to the chief"] >> thank you. thank you very much.
hello, folks. our first lady. well, we just want to thank every body. this has been an amazing journey for all of us. not just me, not just melania, it's an amazing journey. and now the work begins. we have to get it done. and we will get it done. there is so much spirit in our country. this is such a great country. and we are going to do things. we will not be taken advantage of anymore. okay? we are going to have those companies come pouring back in when b you've seen what's been happening over the last three weeks. and we are going to have a lot
of things happen. you either read about them -- i don't know. let me ask you. should i keep the twitter going or not? keep it going? [applauding] i think so. you know... the enemies keep saying, "oh, that's terrible" -- but it's a way of bypassing dishonest media, right? but i just want to thank you. we started out -- we weren't given a great chance, but we knew we were going to win. it took two weeks before we went to number one, not a long time. the first week was composed in terms of the phony polls, composed of two days. so we were at number one, and we stayed there the entire route during the primaries, and then,
boy, did i work those last four weeks. i worked -- oh, ay ay ay... that was some job. we did a good job together. i tell you what. many ofof the people in these rooms went to the rallies with us. they went to those rallies. i saw one person on television tonight. incredible family. her and her husband. she said, "we've gone to 42 trump rallies." i said, 42? 42? we did, we had a lot of people that went to a lot of the rallies. you know, when we went in, i really felt that last week in particular said, how are we going to lose? how can we lose? there is too much. there has never been a movement like this anywhere in the world. there is never been like that.
i am so looking forward -- i just left, actually, the oval office because -- because our great general "mad dog" mattis was approved tonight. the senate approved, he was first. and i went to sign, and mike pence who is coming out in a second, you saw what happen, right? he just swore him in. and general kelly -- we are going to have a border again. he was approved tonight by the senate. so we are starting to work and we are doing a great job. we are not going to let you down. remember the theme. make america great again and make america great again -- i will tell you what. i've added since i've gotten to
know so many people in this country, greater than ever before. it will happen. so i want to thank everybody for being with us and sticking with us and it's been an amazing experience and now the fun begins, okay? now the fun begins. we are going to do a really good job, and i will be fighting every single day for you. thank you, every body. thank you, and have a great night. thank you. [applauding] >> announcer:ou and now the president and the first lady ofe the united states will take their first dance. ladies and gentlemen,an the firt couple, donald and melania trum trump.

the host of "fox & friends" ." >> it's a happy time for our friend. i hate to personalize this that way, but it was a delight 20 minutes ago to get him on the phone and to congratulate. >> sean: i wasn't planning on mentioning that... >> he called sean! >> it's really a very special -- >> how are you feeling? >> sean: can we put their mic up, i don't hear it in my ears. you know what? it's really -- everyone kept asking me after the election, how do you feel. my answer is same. relief? eight years of i think really tough times for those of us who are conservative that didn't like the direction of the country. this wasec amazing. this is a pageantry to this. you were talking about that early. explain what you thought. >> firstt of all, you are bombarded here. everyone loves the two of you. everyone is taking pictures of you.
>> sean: because you are with us.. [laughs] >> as a journalist, i try to tell both sides. but you are able to give your opinion and you had a big hand in that. it's really powerful to see the impact. >> sean: i would say this. it takes a lot of spokes and a will to make the wheel go aroun around. when i went on the road so many with them, i felt what i feel in this crowd tonight. a sense of enthusiasm that we've been going in the wrong direction and what i've loved about his speech, he's talking about doing the things that he promised on the campaign trail. wanted to roll up the sleeves and get to work. at the end he will be judged on that. >> beautiful family. if you talk about melania's story, she became a citizen ten years ago and she's the first lady of united states ofno
america. sean, you talk about your path. you talk about what you came from as well. [laughter] >> it's a true american story. if you work really hard, which hea dies, he doesn't sleep, heo doesn't drink alcohol, he's not a big partier, he gets up in the morning after an hour, two hours of sleep? >> sean: i reveal one thing that most of the conversations i've had with them as i was looking for an interview, even, where at 1:00 in the morning. >> yet. >> sean: he is always up late, i'm always up late, geraldo -- >> he can run circles around us. >> i don't want to lose the poit you're making about pageantry's. what we witnessed today is the grandeur of the american republic. regardless where you stand politically, philosophically, ideologically, to watch the 44th tpresident yield to the 45th president and to see the peaceful transition of power, and thenof to see the pomp and circumstance of putting aside
the discourse. there was so much respect for the flag, for the country, and for the office of the presidency. i am honored to know and be friends -- that >> sean: are you going to have a moment like when obama went into office, or are you -- >> you know, you can't minimize -- that magistrate is something very special. we don't have a monarch. we don't have a king. we have a civilian leader elected by the people and he assumes power and everyone gets it except for the troublemakers throwing rocks through the windows. >> i tell you what every woman is talking about, how beautiful melania looks tonight. her outfit isit spectacular ando classy. she brings class and polish into the white house, not that it hasn't been there before, but she is just exquisite. it's so fun as a female to
really appreciate that. a reallypr beautiful family. >> sean: i like the defined guy that was up there saying, they say i shouldn't keep my twitter. i'm keeping it. i love -- by the way, and then he goes, "i'm going to bypass the dishonest media" and he starts pointing up here. i'm like, not here. and he goes, "we are going to build a wall." "it's going to be greater than ever." i like that part. >> i like in his speech when he told me i feel your pain. when you are in need, we want to work together as a country and still have unity. >> sean: we've got to take a quick break. we will talk more about this but will have more with ainsley and geraldo throughout the night. we've got more coming up on this two hour addition of. michelle malkin is here. we have everybody here. and we got a pretty rowdy crowd. all my rowdy friends are hanging out here tonight. we will continue from the freedom ball.
>> announcer: please welcome the unforgettable silhouettes. once upon a time a girl with golden locks broke into a house owned by three bears. she ate some porridge, broke the baby bear's chair, and stole some jewelry, a flat-screen tv, and a laptop. luckily the geico insurance agency had helped the bears with homeowners insurance. they were able to replace all their items... ...including a new chair from crate and barrel. call geico and see how easy it is to switch and save on homeowners insurance.
>> sean: all, welcome back. sorry, we are sitting here talking and having a great time. we are broadcasting live tonight. we are at the freedom ball in washington, d.c., where president trump and his family made an appearance. they are now on their way to salute our armed forces. we are going to take that life. we continue with ainsley earhardtdt, geraldo rivera. i'm watching the reaction. it's veryer interesting. this is a fox crowd. this is a hometown crowd. >> no doubt about it. >> you and geraldo -- >> sean: i pointed to our
neighbors next door and i said, a bad word. they started chanting it. it was reallyly funny. >> he was busy with these executive orders. well mattis is now confirmed. , and kelly, homeland security. he wrote the executive order, withstanding any new regulation regulations. >> i want to get back to something that ainsley said when she was talking about the first lady melania trump he -- and she looked beautiful. i will give credit to he has a l family. did i give you a heart attack? i was always disappointed in michelle and a some of the thins she said, but it's notni political. more importantly, you look at that family, everyone is up on that stage and in their own right, they are strong, independent, and they all
coalesced around their father, and their father-in-law. they all went to bat for him. so many people say to me, he can't be that bad. look howid great his family is. >> as a new parent myself, you look atel their family and mostf the people, most of the viewers are parents. you guys are. look at them and you know they are hosting a dream that he has for his children. i look at them and i think, it's just the american dream. you want so badly to give your children a better life than you had, he's done h that. he's risen a wonderful family, it seems. i asked him last night when i had an interview with him what his parents would be thinking, he said, "my mother was a strong person." and today, he was holding the lincoln bible, melania was holding it, which i thought was nice. and his mother's bible was on top. and in jamaica queens, where he grew up.
as a mother, i pray for my daughter every single day. that god places blesses her li. i know his mother did the same thing. and though her son has become the president of the united states. he marriedte a lady that becamea citizen ten years ago. if that's not the american dream, i don't know what is. >> sean: well said. i've gotten to know these people. we've interviewed them. you know john, -- and what's amazing are the stories they would tell about their father. they don't have access to the families money. they fly commercial. they all have had to earn their keep within the trump organization, which they have alll done. and each one of them in and of their own right gave a measure of respect and success, but when the time came to rally around their father, don junior was doing ten cities, eric was doing 15 cities.
>> i think that melania stole the show. i mean, i love the family. as a president, terrific. but this first lady will be a fashion icon. going to set a cultural tone. i think michelle did a fantastic job and deservedly one of the most popular public figures. i think melania will similar be in a way that wille make fashin shout again. i don't know nothing all of this stuff. >> ralph lorenz, she decided to go with an american designer. i went online to find out how much it was and if i could afford it. you can even buy it. i think he designed only for her. one of the number one trending searches on yahoo right now. all my girlfriendsng have been texting all day long about it. it's very jackie-o.
>> sean: ari lot of people were wondering if i would be wearing wearing -- >> if russian oligarchy had $4 million, they get lady gaga and elton john, why can't somebody like desh, i'm so disappointed in hollywood andho the pressure they put on people and black people not to show up, i think it's -- >> sean: are you going to come back earlier, we will see you in a little bit. up next, also a friend of donald trump and judge jeanine shapiro, salute to the armed services ball. thate and more as we continue o live from the freedom ball in washington, d.c., the 45th president of the united states inaugurated today, donald j. trump, will continue.
>> sean: >>an sean: welcome back to "hannity." we are at the freedom ball in washington, d.c. president donald trump., is on n their way to salute the armed forces at the armed services ball. we will take you there lie when he arrives. palmetto fort and the -- guys, good to see you. you know, when you came on board. i remembere early on there was
three people. you were confident from day one. i remember the first conversations we had. >> donald trump understood america. there was no question in my mind watching his message that he had figured out what the media was reporting on was -- the great country of main street america was suffering. he saw it. he knew it. knowing donald, i knew that he would only get into something that he wanted to put himself into and results would be all that mattered. >> how did everybody else miss that? >> i talk to people every day, i read economic statistics every day. how could anyone with a clear conscience or thought process thinks the iran deal went well? >> this is the first election i've been a part of where the narrative was written before the race was run. the media and the establishment
didn't want to vary from their narrative, and they felt that because trump was not a part of it, he'd have no chance. same arrogance that trump talked about with brexit that he said would happen in november, and he did. >> sean: i don't remember in history where a movement has onen strongly defined by a t personality as we see here a guy that's never been inn office before. >> he's the most incredible candidate i've ever worked for. always, he's the most incredible candidate. but he believed in what he was doing. the reason the establishment and the whole system couldn't get to him is because he was confident that what he was doing was what the american people h wanted. >> sean: there werepl a couple of different points, you and i stayed in touch when you were in the campaign, when you left the campaign. you never lost that confidence. i remember talking about a week before the election, you are 100% confident. you and i were going over the
electoral math together, and you got it right. i had a little bit of a map than you did, i had new hampshire. i thought colorado might be in play a little bit more, but the rust belt really came through. that's where people have suffered theal most. >> my concern before the election was that people were not going to believe that we won when we won. i've been talking w to people. i talked to people over the weekend, look, i'd know you think i'm crazy, but let me put it on theou map. you're not going to likeo what you're going to hear, but it's going to happen on tuesday. trump -- the appeal he had in the rust belt was there. you could see it through the there, the responses, everything. people were paying no attention to it. and when hillary kept giving trump a free ride in those states, for him to walk in, it's all he neededd to be. >> sean: i don't know if it would've paid off if she did go. >>r she never understood this is a changed election. and he did. and the american people did.
and his speech today, his inaugural speech today, was right on message. >> sean: chuck todd today after he gives his speech, he still below to make the water. we don't know which one will show up. the same one who showed up for the last circle years. what did you expect works all of a sudden, he'll become an establishment? i don't think that's ever going to happen. >> people who criticize their speechit today, they'll criticie everything he does because they don't get it. they don't get the american people, they don't get donald trump, if they get one they will get the other because those two are in sync in this country and today he offered to. what he's done in the transition, which the media was looking for him to verify, he's done this transition when he said he was their candidate. >> sean: it's funny, different opinions with geraldo talking about the pageantry and ainsley was talking about the family. what stood out to me was when he said, s "i will not let you dow"
and he went through some of the promises and h talked about twitter and then he said, "should i stay on twitter," the crowd said "yes," securing the borders,rs not only making amera great but greater than ever. that is the person i got to know when i interviewed. i also saw a lot of growth in him in the year and a half through the campaign. i knew him beforehand, i watched him throughout the process, and i saw incredible growth and his trajectory said he's never seen in politicsg before. >> besides understanding the american people, he understood how to speak to them. the more he reacted to the reactions to the people, the more he helped them grow. politics is an art. >> sean: the art of the deal is different from the art of political war, great job. great to seeee you. when we come back, we've got judge shapiro, but we are waiting for the president of
president donald trump and the first lady melania trump and his family to salute our armed services at the armed services ball. we are going to takeke you live there. do you guys want to say hello? we've got a great crowd of people. they've been watching all night. i can't hear you. do you have a good time at the ball tonight? all right. we have a great crowd here. joining us now is the host of -- and new york city mayoral candidate bo dietl. now -- [crowd chanting usa] nobody is doing this for cnn. you brought me a new football. >> don't you dare throw that. no, no, no, no, no! that was an egg. no. shawn... no, sean. you don't want to pay for this.
>> sean: this looks like a football. >> you are very good. you are very good. >> sean: do you even know what that t is? >> is a purse. why would you even know that. >> sean: they are saying "throw that ball." >> no, no, no, no. >> you got it for free? >> no, i didn't. >> is her pocketbook. >> sean: i got it. here's what i want to ask you, bo dietl bo. all of you went all in for donald trump. i was all in, too. i am happy because i believe we have to follow through in his agenda and i think he will be a four years from now, we will be better off. more jobs, stronger country, borders secure, better people on the supreme court, energy
independence, hopefully. >> i thinkul what it's all abou, people have to let him go. give him his shot, given his chance. >> sean: people are leading cause of fire tonight. >> that's the other thing. all over the city, inspires them to throw rocks? the pointt is, give the guy a chance. if you didn't vote for him or not, whatever the process, you got to give them an opportunity. his speech today was great. i love the idea of bringing people together. we have to bring everyone together. we are all americans. >> you know what? this is all great. let's bring everyone together. here's the bottom line. here's the bottom line. you break the law under donald trump, they are going to be consequences. it's going to be law ands order. i ran into burning cars as i was coming up here. he's talking about how sad it was on the street. >> sean: it's bad. >> it wass bad. >> i'm purposely not talking a lot about it. >> sean: they don't deserve
it. >> i tell you what they deserve. they deserve to be prosecuted. they deserve to be convicted. they deserve to be punished. this is not first amendment. this is criminal anarchy. >> i was talking to cops out there. you got those helmets. i said now you got to lock up the'v trouble markers. you see all these guys go away. >> do you know what the problem is with like you don't care about it. americans right now are proud of it. >> look at new york! >> sean: everybody wants your ball. >> they want yours. it's true. >> this is a great night. >> donald trump -- president donald trump! all i can say is look at what he did. 20,000 people shut the streets down throwing rocks at the cops two nights ago, he was in new york city with this big demonstration. hey, you want to demonstrate which might demonstrate peacefully. break the law, hurt somebody,
you get locked up. >> sean: you guys stay right there. we have to take a break. we expect that donald trump will be at the armed services ball. when that happens, we will bring that to you live. he'll be there with the first lady. of course, mike pence, the new vice president and his wife and both their families. that's all coming up you have to come, the special two hour addition of "hannity," from the freedom ball continues. 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: and welcome back to "hannity." we are moments away from president trump appearing at the salute to our armed services ball. we will take you there as soon as he steps on the stage. joining us is syndicated columnist michelle malkin. michelle maskingv. investigates and a special assistant now to
president trump. forrest epstein is with us. it's going to be very special for you. >> i've been on board with the movement at the very beginning. i went from being a supporter to a servant, sr. -- so proud of what we've done. now the great honor of serving the president. >> sean: i made your life and anthony scaramucci's life and living horror. >> he's got a new nickname, "ticketmaster." >> sean: tonight, they are having fun. >> that's anthony's family. >> sean: people don't know, there is literally a stage here, a stage here, he stage here. i would say how many people are in this room? >> at least 20,000. a huge number.
and then the armed services ball. >> sean: that was by invitation, right? >> also, mightily, that's a new edition. the president now donald trump enrich their lives to keep americans safe. >> sean: a change in the course, michelle malkin. i don't want to go backwards, a night of celebration. i think adding first responses, firemen, those people that put their lives onem p the line, whe are going down the building to get out, they are the ones going up in the other direction. >> wow.d this is a huge culture change, sean. and we have a statement on the new white house web site, rejecting the antipolice cultur culture. this is such. a relief to law-abiding americans, especially the law enforcement community who suffered under an obama administration where they were persecuted and demonized.
this is a night of revelry and celebration. there is also a reminder that all of those cops on the beat, law enforcement at every level have worked there lives off for america. and finally they have a commander-in-chief who respects and reveres them. >> sean: i think that's a good point. and i don't want to give them a lot of attention, but there are people have been burning cars. there are little mobs. i saw a guy last night literally get chased into a secure area, fighting for his life a couple of hundred people were chasing him. >> very unfortunate. i think the process of the inaugural period, he still raw. in this country. it's important to honor it. there has to be rawls, rules, regulations, sean. all those folks, just stop. ifif you have an encouraging message, express it. express it peacefully, don't break cars but what's the point?
>> sean: i think you were appealing to people capable of stopping, they won't stop. they choose not to. we've seen a lot of this, though, in the last couple of years. i think one of the biggest mistakesi we've made, president obama made, michelle, being on the wrongth side of the high-profile racial issues like ferguson and baltimore and the cambridge police and trayvon martin, he created an atmosphere where people felt that they would never come when evidence was finally ultimately presented. >> that is the politics of chicago. and it was the demonization of those who stand with law and order. there is a reason why so many border patrol agents signed up and lined up with donald trump very early on. and while you saw all of the heroic families of illegal immigration and illegal immigrants criminals. and it was the fact that
donald trump alone among the g.o.p.ru candidates, so many of them opened borders who didn't understand what donald trump understood. they were, as you so often put it,e sean, the forgotten men and women. >> sean: you know, let's get back to that. donald trump i thought when he was here at this freedom ball and he said, "i will fight for you every single solitary day." i like the fact that he went back to not only make america great again but greater than ever. these are the things i'm going to do. i've gotten to know him a lot over the last couple of years, i've done a lot of interviews with them. a lot of town hallsrv with him. andhe since the election, his message doesn't shift. it's not changed. he seems very focused on an agenda and that's something that he was talking about the establishment and in d.c. today, his inaugural address, may be saying that we've got to change how we do businesso here. >> cpac, there is one word tht
describes trump. that is confidence and authent. donald trump is an authentic ma man. he a says what he believes and believes what he says. that's why he's the president. and that's so amazing for someone -- we came here has jewish refugees. i'm so proud of everything this country has gone, everything he's done for the country. that's the give-and-take that so vital to the american culture, that donald trump understands it like no other. seeing him comes one as -- the one it's an amazing thing, how much power. they call it the bully pulpit of the presidency, how much power that president can have.es i would argue that within 90-100 days, 90% of barack obama's agenda through executive orders is like he was never there. but we've got to break.

together. so last night, we were out. the two of these guys we treat ran into a protest, some guy was throwing eggs that you all, all the security guards are pushing us inside the auditorium. they were saying bring it on. bring it on. >> sean: you had like five or your couple friends. your own little posse going on. geraldo goes to me, let's go talk to them. i walk over, the guy threw an egg. i quickly ducked. >> when he took my hand and he pulled me, that's when i wanted to punch him. >> sean: that's so shocking, by the way. hold on, i've got it, let's go to the armed services ball. trump and melania have just taken to the states. >> how gorgeous is she.

by the senate. and isn't it something? two generals are the first ones. with all the politicians, the generals get approved first. maybe that's the way it supposed to be. maybe that's the way. now, we have some folks right now in afghanistan. right? i think they hear me. there is about a 62nd delay, but i think they hear me. do you guys hear me? let's see how good we are doing. yes, they hear me. they hear me. how is it over there? how is it going? what question do you have? don't be like these people, too tough on me. go ahead.
>> hi, sir. i am with the united states ar army. i would just like to say congratulations to your new position. >> president trump: thank you, very much. that's so nice. thank you. that's very nice. we couldn't hear her too clearly but i think she just congratulated us, not me. us. on this victory. i want to thank you. >> on behalf of my air base, we would like to congratulate you on being elected new president of the united states. >> president trump: thank you,
very much. so nice. by the way, i have to tell you. it's a 10-second delay but i like them much better than i like the media, right? much finer people, nicer people. that's great. thank you very much. go ahead. >> good evening, sir. i am with the army, illinois army national guard out of chicago. we are excited about today, congratulations on becoming president of the united states. >> president trump: thank you, very much. that is really, really nice. i'm with you all the way. you have somebody that is going to be right alongside of you. we are going to do it together.
we are going to do it together. honestly, not only the support you've given me, the courage that you show is incredible. it is going to be appreciated. it is appreciated now but it's going to be appreciated more than ever before. you're going to see. okay, thank you very much. go ahead. take one more. i love these 10-second delays, right? it gives you plenty of time to think about an answer. such nice questions though. >> good evening, mr. president. i'm with the german liaison te team. advising and assisting our coalition partners here in afghanistan. behalf of all of the marines here in afghanistan, we just want to say congratulations and good luck to you with your term.
>> president trump: thank you, very much. really nice. thank you. and we are going to have some people going over and seeing you soon. and you are doing an amazing job over there. how about taking one more? go ahead, take one more. got it? you want to do one more? so far, i love these questions because everyone is congratulating me. i want to congratulate you. these are the nicest questions. >> i'm a 25 sierra, i would like to congratulate you on your inauguration, sir. >> president trump: you are the nicest people. but they are only nice right now to me. they are probably definitely not so nice in other ways. i want to thank you all.
you are amazing people, we are with you a thousand, 1000%. you're doing just an incredible job. thank you all very much. we will see you and keep fighting. we are going to win. we are going to win. we are going to win. keep fighting. thank you. why can't all people be like that? six questions and six congratulations. we've done two up these. we had big crowds, 10,000. 12,000. and i guess there's two more that i'm supposed to go to. at some point, i'm going to say
first of all, did you hear the speech today? and actually even the media said the crowd was massive. so, finally. that was all the way back down to the washington monument. and that was what was supposed to be rain, turned out not to be rain. it was beautiful. let me just say this. you are special people, you are great, great people. i have your back. we're going to do great things for our country. you know, i ran, the journey started 18 months ago. people said we don't have a big chance. we went to number one about would you say two weeks or three weeks into the polls? we went to number one in the primaries. and then we just stayed there
and we did well and it wasn't so much me. it was me, i did a good job as a messenger. but i am your messenger, just remember that. i am your messenger. but it all began with a theme, and the theme is make america great again. and i've gotten to know the people of our country so well. i've been all over. and we had tremendous victories. i will tell you, we have the greatest people on earth. we are not only going to make america great again, we are going to make america greater than ever before. so i want to thank all of you, you are very, very special people. honey, select him back say something.
[cheering and applauding] [crowd chanting usa] >> sean: there is the president and the first lady, i believe that is the armed services ball. it looks like they've got a cake back there. he saw there was a satellite hookup with some soldiers in afghanistan and actually questioning the new president. i'm not exactly sure what this looks like it, it looks like a cake. let's watch what happens. it's a cake.
and he's going to use his sword, ainsley earhardt and geraldo rivera join us. it was pretty touching know to watch him take these questions from these servicemen and women in afghanistan. and while melania the first lady and the president were dancing and the vice president and his wife, than to switch off with members in the military, i thought there was a touching moment. >> we all agreed with that. i thought it was wonderful. at first we didn't see the shot of them come out the individuals in the middle east fighting for our country. i thought it was taking questions from the crowd. >> the thing about it, sean. this is the ball i usually go to. i remember in 2004, george w. bush's second inauguration, going to the ball and there was a grimness to it that i can't begin to describe. we were losing so many in iraq
and afghanistan. we were losing seven, eight gis a day. afghanistan was still ongoing. now the depressing thing about it is i don't want to put it -- that's 2005, this is 2017. we are still in afghanistan. we are still in iraq. >> sean: i think one of the things that stood out, i remember the day, i was broadcasting and you were in afghanistan. you kept pointing over your shoulder saying osama bin laden was in those mountains. and he was. i think one thing that donald trump has been very clear about, he is going to build a military, fix our va, which is so important. the second thing is he doesn't want to get entangled in any foreign wars. >> that's the point i wanted to make. he made a very specific point of saying it is part of its national policy now. the annihilation of islamic
extremism. >> sean: what a d mark takes in >> given what has transpired since 2005 2005 -- coats >> sea: of barack obama keep he would never say it, he would never -- he was threading the needle. right in the middle of that inaugural speech today, donald trump said those words which i think what's a strong message. there is a new sheriff in town. >> yeah, our country needs that. our care wow grandparents fought in world war ii. there's so many war stories from them. it's really cool to hear him say that. our country cannot afford to not have strong borders or national security. he also said recently that he
wants to take care of our troops when they come back and help them get jobs or if they want to go back out and fight, he'll get them back on the front lines. many of them are self-medicati self-medicating -- >> suicide. >> sean: there's 250,000 troops that have fought in afghanistan and iraq that have ptsd. if we can't fix the va fast enough, we will let them go to any hospital in the country to get the care that this country promised them. geraldo, we agreed on the war for the most part. >> we did. i think that's where we bonded mostly. >> sean: really? >> we disagreed on almost everything else. >> sean: i will say this, somebody that supported the war for all the right reasons i believe, we have to pause. if we are going to send 5,000 men to fight, bleed, and die. and then to hand it over to is isis, if i am the father or
mother of one of those sons or daughters, vietnam, 58,000 people died. we politicize the war. we pulled out, we don't win it. >> i absolutely agree. especially with ainsley's domestic told that she mention mentioned. when you are saying you're going to annihilate islamist extremism, what is that mean? are we going to re-exploit the fight? iraq is almost easier in the sense that we know it going to take the second largest city back. we've got to get to syria, get isis out of syria. where does it go though? he's got the right guys. he's got to general matus. >> sean: mad dog matus. you guys have been troopers. you are up what time in the morning? >> i think 3:00 a.m. we go on from 6-10 tomorrow and
you are going to be on the show. >> yes. i will be on to it. >> sean: i'm gonna let you to go. >> blood he marries for brunch. >> i'll bring them. champagne and orange. >> sean: one a night to celebrate. now by the way, larry elder with reaction. i know it might be a little different, we are here at the ball. how do you take this in. seeing it from that distance? >> all i can say is wow. what a breathtaking day. we've gone from having a president who would not utter the words radical islam to one who second defense referred to as mad dog. there absolutely is a new sheriff in town. already, president trump has signed executive orders to rollback some of the regulations on obamacare and to put a
moratorium on the job killing regulations. $100 billion for every of the president obama has been an office on the backs of job providers. who already, we are seeing a huge huge difference. this is an extraordinary day. it was a very feisty, robust 60 minute inaugural speech that he gave. he played the hits. i've never heard of inaugural address quite like that. >> sean: what's interesting is, you get some of the observations of the liberal media, the alt radical left media. they can believe that donald trump was donald trump. i'm saying, if it wasn't so silly, it's almost amusing that they thought oh, well he's been in washington 10 minutes. maybe now he is one of us. maybe he'll be the person we think you should be. because we can't believe the person he was actually won. in that sense, it's entertaini entertaining. it's also indicative of the battle he will face against an establishment media. an establishment democrats and
republicans. >> no question. he's roughly what, 12 hours in? we haven't had any gulags, concentration camps. so far he hasn't launched world war iii. shockingly. meanwhile, one of our other competitive cable channels, they referred to that speech as dark. to do so to say you are putting america first, secure the bord border, that's xenophobic or hateful? please. some people believe that when you say you're going to put america first, you mean you're going to put america first. >> sean: larry elder, great to have you on this inauguration day. will be come back, we are live from washington, d.c. he is the reverend darrell scott and dr. sebastian gorka. coverage from our nation's coverage from our nation's capital straight
>> now the work begins. we have to get it done. and we will get it done. there is so much spirit in our country. this is such a great country. and we are going to do things. we will not be taken advantage of anymore. okay? >> sean: that was president donald trump earlier tonight at the freedom ball where we have been broadcasting from all night. joining us now with reaction,
dr. sebastian gorka. and the referent darrell scott. it took a lot of heat for supporting donald trump. >> i know, from the black community. >> sean: are people coming around? >> yeah, people are coming around. even more will come around because donald trump is going to do what he said he was going to do. he's going to deliver on it. they are going be impressed. >> sean: i have always as a conservative, we had this discussion one night, at a restaurant, not a bar. it struck straight to me that every four years, the democratic party will play the race card. republicans are racist, sexist, islamic phobic, all this nonsense. it's not true. if donald trump does send education back to the states, does fix the inner city schools that are broken, if he can fix a city like detroit, or milwaukee, or cleveland and philly, and bring jobs to the black
community, can the demographics shift where the black community will now vote in greater numbers to republicans? >> yeah come on because he's going to do some undeniable things. we already have some major initiatives. in the formation stage. when these things come out, when it pops. it's going to be great. it's good to be undeniable. the bible talks about the undeniable truths. they're going to be some undeniable truths that come out of the trump administration for the black community. like what are these guys doing? boycotting the election? i've got a suggestion. why don't they all just quit. why don't dale just quit. >> sean: did you see steve harvey? the president-elect, no president invites him to come for a meeting. if president obama invited me, i would be there in 10 minutes. >> he came back on and said you hurt me, you hurt me. don't let your animates know that they hurt you.
what's funny though, steve harvey is one of the guys that was fighting against me. he got on his radio program and said don't go to that guy. >> sean: did he say that? >> he did it on the air. i feel bad for him. he would have done. >> sean: wait a minute. barack obama i never liked. because of his policies. because of his views, because of its radical background. i would've been -- hi! we have stragglers, that's always good. dr. gorka, that's always good. i talk a lot about the economy. the president now mentioned today radical islam in his inaugural speech, which was very different from what we've experienced the last eight yea years. how'how is that message being received? in your study. >> everything has changed. when he used those three words
today, radical islamic terrorism, he put the marker down for the whole national security establishment. everybody heard it. law enforcement, national intelligence security, our allies and our enemies heard it. no more political correctness. you're not going to rename it. >> sean: does not mean they want to accept the challenge or that means we've got to be more careful and there will be consequences? >> i think both. the guys inside the machine that i've had the honor of working with, who have just been shackled and realized, now we can go to war because we can be truthful about who the enemy is. the people especially at the top, the brandon's of the world come of the people just below that, the carriers for the administration, they are on notice. no more propaganda. no more twisting the truth. for both audiences, the new commander-in-chief made it unequivocal, sean. >> sean: i've got different
times, if i'm barack obama and i'm listening to radical islamic terrorism, i'm listening to we are going to fix this, this, and this. it's got a sting a little bit because the numbers. i can name a place on this earth that's better off. if you want talk about libya, benghazi, iran. >> africa. the middle east. they are all on fire. >> sean: everything is worse. economically, it's worse off. >> but now the new sheriff, new commander-in-chief. >> sean: because it's about, to me that provides opportunity. hi, guys! they are all having fun. there is an opportunity. their optimism. >> there is optimism nationwide. i know you are going to agree with me. we get up every morning, wondering what donald trump is going to do today. what is president trump going to
say today? we rush to twitter, what did he tweet? that's expectation and enthusiasm, even his detractors get up every day wondering what is he going to say. it is he going to do. it's a good feeling. >> sean: how soon will he be tested on the national security front? >> when you look at actors like north korea, vladimir putin, what have they been doing for the last decade? they are pushing, constantly prodding. i would guess that those people that are not interested, really collaborating, they are going to test us. they're going to test donald trump. he's got to deal with that but he's got an amazing team. it's just all stars. general mattis, mike flynn. general kelly. we have the grown-ups in the building. there will be tests, crisis, but they will deal with it. >> do you think they will be
less? with a mad dog mattis and mike flynn. >> sean: good to see you both. what a day. >> sean hannity was supposed to come to my church and he didn't show up. >> sean: i called you, have to change the date. >> you called. i try to put you on blast. >> sean: you are trying to embarrass me on national television. i can't believe it. >> he' he can be bringing it to cleveland. >> sean: we are all spokes on a wheel. when we come back, much more from washington, d.c. coming up next as we continued the coverage of the inauguration of donald j. trump, the 45th president of the united states. >> the bible tells us how good and pleasant it is when god's
people live together in unity. we must speak our minds openly, debate our disagreements honestly, but always pursue solidarity. when america is united, america when america is united, america is totally achoo! (snap) achoo! (snap) achoo! achoo!

>> let me ask you. should i keep the twitter going or not? keep it going? [cheering and applauding] i think so. you know... the enemies keep saying, that's terrible," but it said away bypassing dishonest media. >> sean: i think the crowd was 99.9% yes. joining us now from the american conservative union, you think back when we started this process. cpac, i interviewed donald trump, rand paul, jeb bush, marco rubio -- >> you did an interview all of them. >> sean: most of them. >> you and i were talking about, we've got a lot of good candidates. you don't know what's going to happen. out of that emerged this movement. >> think about it.
in july, the talk from the abundance was that the republican party was dead. end of the party. all that dissecting analysis. and donald trump's president. >> sean: it went right to the heart of the establishment. i think there is a certain disconnect out there among the political class -- >> definitely. >> sean: you two are married, you live in washington, and i read an article that you were disinvited from dinners, parties, had enemies. >> i was told my career was over, my reputation was sunk because we didn't have the character to stand up against donald trump. our response was the same thing, but when we go out and talk to americans, what they want -- >> sean: the difference between you and me, all these other guys i don't like you never liked anyway, i would just go blasted them back. >> you have a little bigger megaphone! >> the start of never trump was
in washington. >> it was capac, it was an effort to say that this voice we are hearing from the people is wrong, immoral and intolerant. >> i really believe donald trump, he gave us a list of 20 or original lists from the supreme court. when he makes that appointment, what is he going to say now? >> it's going to be huge! >> sean: how could they not have factor that in? >> i do believe a tail aspect campaign and my catholic friends who were never trumpers, they voted for trump.t >> sean: -- i believe the promises on judges and or regionalism originalism -- so many things
going on. >> what about what he's doing with american businesses? he is challenging them to double down in the best of america. they are. >> it's amazing. >> sean: i love it. >> it's a little bit -- look, if you also didn't back up with, i will get rid of the bureaucracy of the regulations -- >> it's a bargain. >> sean: listen. one thing i said about donald trump, everything with them is a negotiation. look, we'll look at the regulations hurting your business, we will lower the corporate tax rates dramatically, and we'll make a better requirement. why would you go there where i'm going to punish you? >> slow moving congress is freaking out. >> sean: i love that, too. >> there was a corporate freak out and a congressional freak out. sean, we are so proud everything you did this year not because you try to do anything to stack the deck, you just cap speaking the truth. i'm proud of my wife, too. >> sean: i said, you guys are going to go boat.
i made everybody stand and say you're a guy is not going to lose, you're going to be a crybaby. >> you were very fair in the primary process. donald trump became that nominee, it was a moment of unity. >> the fact is he was the only one who couldn't win. at the time everybody kept saying that he's the only one he's the guy you can connect to the guy who's got his name stitched to the front of the uniform. >> his speech tonight being criticized by the left was brilliant. she said, this is your movement , -- i thought it was so effective. he came across as being the people's president. >> sean: we've got to leave you guys. congratulations. we've got a new found president right. it's amazing. >> we've got a radio show! serious xm. >> sean: what do you call it?
that would be great radio. when we come back, my friend louis gomer will join us live from washington, d.c. donald trump, the 45th president of the united states of america. >> what truly matters is not which party controls our government, but whether our government is controlled by the people. january 20th 2017 will be remembered as the day the people became the rulers of this nation again. the forgotten men and women of our country will be forgotten no
>> you are going to see things happening over the next few weeks. oh, you are going to be so happ happy. you are going to be. because they are very elegant people tonight. but they also are very political people, right? we want to see great things happen for our country. we want to make america great again. >> sean: all right. that was -- i was going to say president-elect. president trump earlier today at this inaugural ball. joining us is texas congressman louis gomer. you are getting. you are happy. >> i shook john boehner's hand. it's a good day. >> sean: let me ask you this. is congress going to fight him, are republicans going to support his agenda? >> the biggest threat is not the
fighting it's what happened in '05, '06, my first term where you had a republican senate leader. they were okay. yeah, we'll get it done. it gets to may, june. maybe october. well, we get it after the first year, after the first year, it was too late. we will have to wait till next year. we can't wait like that. a bigger threat than an outright fight is delayed, delay, delay. >> sean: republicans raised the debt ceiling $1.7 trillion over ten years. >> look. let's put our numbers in the rain. it's a vehicle to get the reveal repeal past. i made it clear, a lot of guys had. to repeal obamacare, you have to raise the debt ceiling. >> sean: you do. >> you don't. >> sean: why would they
propose that? i'm not blaming you. you don't want to do this. >> that bill that became the vehicle that will help us reveal his agenda on refugees. >> sean: do you agree with his agenda on repatriation? >> exactly. >> sean: 100% repatriation tax for everyone overseas? >> sean: >> well, i don't thinkd have a taxes to bring money in. there was a former fdic chair named isaacs. he said you don't need the wall street bailout. we've got trillion dollars overseas americans have. if you would just say no tax on anything that you earned overseas and you bring in, you invest in what we say is troubled. we can save lehman brothers. any of them, we could save gm, we wouldn't have to have chrysler sell fiat. we could've saved all of those
if all of that american capital earned overseas, they can't bring tax to pay that in. >> sean: will beget energy independence? will we get a well-built? will we get 15% corporate tax rate? >> we have got to. >> sean: are we going to get an originalist on the supreme court? >> i think he would. i would like to see my friend ted cruz there myself. i don't think he was on the list of 20. >> sean: i would think he would be a great supreme court justice. >> then how long he would be there. think about how long to match just to push them out. we are going to get these things done. >> sean: is there any part of the trump agenda that you see, which i think is pretty bold and ambitious, that you think he'll have a problem getting through? >> all of it.
the biggest threat is slow walking it. we can't let that happen. i know a lot of people say you've got to do a repeal and replace at the same time. well, if you eliminate the right to monopolize health insurance companies have, nobody else gets to avoid antitrust laws. if you don't do that and you sell across state lines instead of having 50 monopolies, you will have one. we have got to allow to sell across state lines, but we've got to eliminate the exceptions that will allow entrepreneurs. you talk about health insurance, they are the key. >> sean: one of the good guys. >> an exciting day. a great day for america. my business was built with passion... but i keep it growing by making every dollar count. that's why i have the spark cash card from capital one. with it, i earn unlimited 2% cash back on all of my purchasing. and that unlimited 2% cash back from spark means
pretty incredible. peaceful transfer of power. we'll be right back in our nation's capital on monday for the first week of the trump administration. some of the sights and sounds.we monday. have a great weekend. >> hundreds and thousands of people expected to be gathered here on the national mall to watch donald j. trump takes place in history as the 45th president of the united states. >> this is a day that's been a year and a half in the making. it started with the presidential bid that many did not take seriously at all. >> is this real? this is real. i am officially running for president of the united states and we are going to make our country great again. leading in just about every state. i am going knock the hell out of
