i want to remind your listeners they can find out on our website. >> tucker: amen. good to see you. that's it for us tononight. we will be back 8:00 p.m., the show that is the sworn enemy of lying, pomposity, smugness, groupthink, have the best night, the great sean hannity awaits right now. >> sean: oh, okay, thanks, tucker, and welcome to "hannity." >> announcer: americans held hostage behind enemymy lines, day 66. >> sean: day 66,in americans, their families, our allies, green card holders, all abandoned in afghanistan, left to suffer, die under taliban rule, 79 days since joe biden promised not to abandon them, 49 days now since joe even mentioned them, not one time in 49 days. the biden administrationne once referred to the taliban terrorists as they are businesslike and professional. we are learning tonight that taliban leaders handing out
cash, promising plots of land to the families of suicide bombersi who killed u.s. soldiers. wow, how professional and businesslike of them. now, sadly, that is not stopping the biden administration from sending billions of your dollars to the taliban in the name of humanitarian assistance.m i would call that a shakedown, and, of course, ransom, and this is in addition to the $83 billion in military equipment that biden left behind, and the untold amounts of cash and other currency they left behind. it is an international disgrace, humiliation on the world stage, it sends a message of emboldenment to our enemies, and yes, it scares to death our ally has, thank you, joe biden. and the biden administration, they lost complete track of american citizens. they have no idea how many are there. they have no idea how many thousands of green card holders are there. family members abandoned there. and they don't know how many billions of dollars in sophisticated equipment they gave to the terrorists.
but now, back here at home, thes want an ever present window into your bank accounts. oh, that makes sense. they want to monitor all of your transactions and figure outan a way to tax every single nickel out of you. it is a core part of biden's multitrillion build back better, new green deal, socialist spending bill that he never talks about, by the way, because he is trying to sneak it through, and according to the government's joint committee on taxation, this plan would affect those making under $50,000 a year the most.t. nearly 60% with the additional taxes from this government intrusion into your bank account, but i thought biden promised not to raise taxes on anyone making over $400,000 a year? okay, joe biden lying again, never mind the biden inflation tax, the high-energy taxes, his press secretary propagandist, circle back psaki, who assured reporters today that build back better won't add a single penny, not 1 cent, even though theyy
have been contradicted many times, to the national debt. a huge lie. take a look. >> the president still believe build back better will not add a dime to the national debt? >> correct, it won't. >> why should americans believe this? >> because it won't. >> he wants to get more taxes, what does that -- the economy goes sour, a lot of things can happen. you're going to tell future generations, not even born yet, that they are not on the hook for this, is that all right all right? >> that's right, and hopefully you will report accurate information yourself. >> sean: oh, because it won't? paid liar jen psaki. after afghanistan, the border, the economy, the covid disaster, why would anyone in their right mind to take the biden administration at their word? joe biden promised to beat the virus, now a brand-new, more contagious and dangerous variant of the delta variant is on the way, and while joe is attending a squeeze low, middle income americans in order to pay for his new green deal, build back better plan, these same
americans are already suffering under record-setting inflation, despite gas prices, heating prices, cooling prices, nationwide shortages, we literally pay more for every item we buy now, thanks to joe, in order to combat these challenges, large corporations, they have to alter their ownwn supply routes, suppliers, and of course, it costs more money, they pass that cost all on to you., many small businesses, they are not so lucky and are now getting upended by supply chain issues created by joe biden and the white house is even reportedly floating an idea to use the national guard to help alleviate the supply chain crisis that they caused, the situation now is so dire, many americans are now hoarding food, other household goods. once again, everyone buying out the toilet paper. everywhere they can get it. and it is about to get so much worse with mass resignations ane mass firings for those that don't comply with biden's vaccine mandate, and there are
tens of thousands of them. in chicago, not in the midst of a year's long crime wave, might soon be down to a thousand --th down a thousand police officers, as the city is also now trying to rip away earned pensions out of spite. that won't do well in court. meanwhile, other police officers, firefighters, first responders, nurses, teachers, members of the military, they are all set to lose their jobs, and by the way, most of these people at this point, they have made up their minds. they are even willing to sacrifice the pensions, because that is their decision. a lot of vaccine hesitancy, could it be from the changingnt guidelines of the dictates off the nih, cdc, the great dr. fauci, joe biden's mixed messaging every single day? first it is no mask, one mask, two mask, then it is vax or masked, now vax, mask, and booster? nobody believes you anymore,
nobody believes a lot about the government says. they have created a vaccine hesitancy themselves and try to blame conservatives. i am the guy that believes in science. but breaking earlier, some good news from southwest airlines, that company is now dropping a plan to put unvaccinated staff on unpaid leave. why? one reason.in they won't have enough workers to fill their spots, and probably they'll head towards insolvency. and of course, these are high-class problems, according to biden's chief of staff ron klain. and according to "the washington post," we, you, the american people, you need to stop ranting about short-staffed stores and supply chain woes, instead, we just need to lower our expectations. oh, really? meanwhile, one top biden advisor telling concerned americans to get over it. oh, you're not going to be able to get the jacket you want in 15 colors, but you'll at least be able to get a jacket. okay. that sounds like jimmy carter's defeatist, you better turn down
your heat and put on a sweater speech. and worst of all, jen psaki mocking americans concerns over supply chain issues, calling it, oh, the tragedy of the treadmile that is delayed, or ron klain, high-class problems, or pete buttigieg, if you want christmas to be merry for your children and not have been disappointed by santa, you better buy now. take a look. >> it was clear in march of hit, that covid supply chains throughout the world had been disrupted, even as the sort of work to fight back against covid proceeded. people, it was crystal clear that things were not improving on supply chains, people couldn't get dishwashers and furniture and treadmills delivered on time, not to mention all sorts of other things, so -- >> the tragedy of the treadmill that is delayed. >> sean: could you be any more pompous, any more obnoxious, frankly, anymore repugnant? major stores now rationing toilet paper.
basic, simple, everyday items, necessities, they are not on the shelves, prices through the roof, we pay more for every iteo we buy because joe gave up the energy independence that donald trump handed him. we now have inflation reaching a near 30-year high, gas prices up on average about $1.50 a gallon and going higher, a gas barrel of oil heading to $100 a barrel, biden begging opec to produce more oil, ought to be begging texas and oklahoma and north dakota and alaska. according to economists from dartmouth and the university of college london, a recession is absolutely fast approaching. this is a massive crisis. jen psaki mocking the concern of millions of americans who are now paying more for everything because of their bad policies. pretty disgraceful, low class public servant, but she speaks for joe or whoever is telling joe what to say or what to do on any given day.
if joe even knows what day of the week it is. and now psaki's friends on the radical left are turning up the pressure on west virginia senator joe manchin. and they are not worried about inflation or a looming recession, no, they just want their $3.5 trillion new greend deal socialism spending rammed through congress. and recently, socialist bernie sanders, he pens an op-ed in manchin's hometown newspaper blasting manchin for not signing off on his socialism, that apparently the people in vermont love, and now other progressives are now running ads in west virginia like this one, take a look. >> my son, he was a welder, and he had to travel two hours from here just to have decent pay. >> one of my children moved tors a big city, out of west virginia because they felt like they couldn't survive here. >> the last five years, 60,000 people leave. joe manchin, we need permanent long-term jobs.
this whole state is depending on him to do something right. >> sean: so, west virginia, in coming weeks, your senator manchin will have an important choice to make. will he stand up for american capitalism, individualism, liberty, freedom for the peoplei of west virginia, or if it came to the whims of the eco-socialists in the swamp in washington, d.c., and his own party?y? now my message to west virginians, if he caves and does the bidding of bernie sanders, he is not looking out for your interests. this build back better, new green socialist agenda, it is not going to create a single job in west virginia. as a matter of fact, say bye-bye to the coal mining industry. instead, it will obliterate the entire energy and coal industry in your state, it will destroy countless high-paying blue-collar jobs, all in the name of climate change. build back better, new green deal socialism, that is going to be a nightmare for west virginia and a nightmare for the country.
here now with analysis, the host of the upcoming special, "save america, kill the bill," on the fox business channel, larry kudlow is with us. this is your wheelhouse. you have lived in this world your entire adult life. analyze it from the perspective of middle-class americans, poor americans that are now paying more for every item they buy, paying more to fill their gas a tanks, heat and cool their home. >> well, i mean look, starting with the energy problem, and by the way, if biden had his way with the green new deal, west virginia would be wiped out because it is a producer of coal, and it's a producer of natural gas, and it's a producer of oil. so these ads are incredibly misleading and basically lying to the voters of west virginia. more broadly, the energy crisis that biden has put us in his
creaming the middle-class. they are the ones who are getting killed because they are the ones who pay higher electricity, they are the ones who pay more gas at the pump. they are the ones who are going to pay more on home heating fuels. and the irony in all this, sean, is that if you look around the world, the advocates of the green new deal, renewables only, wind and solar, well, guess what, in the north sea, the wind didn't blow, the united kingdom, britain, has gotten killed by this, and they wind up getting rid of renewables and importing coal, or producing coal, which really is the most harmful of the fossil fuels. maybe there is a clean coal case to be made. germany the same way, having bet the ranch on renewables, particularly wind, they now find themselves failing. they've gone to coal, and i might add, vladimir putin,
merkel really supported the nord stream 2 pipeline, vladimir putin is not giving them the natural gas so they have to import that and pay a fortune, my point is, it is just plainly dumb to think that in a few years, you are going to wipe out 80% of our power, 80% of our power comes from fossil fuels, and instead put into play 3% of our power, which is solar panels and wind. who pays that? the middle class is going to pay that every time. >> sean: larry, it is the lifeblood of the world's economy. let's be blunt here. we achieved something under donald trump that was critical to the success of our economy, and that was energy independence. we had not achieved that in 75 years. i think one of his greatest achievements, because that helped the economic engine that led to precoronavirus record low unemployment for every demographic group in the country.
energy -- look, if you can find a cheaper, practical form of energy that is cleaner, i am all for it. i am an "all of the above" guy. but in the meantime, joe biden is giving putin a waiver for a pipeline while firing keystone xl pipeline workers, high paying career jobs. why would we ever do that? because now he will supply our allies in western europe. why would we now allow ourselves to be in the position of begging opec? countries that hate us, for the lifeblood of our economy, when we have enough resources here at home? >> yeah, wow, those are all good questions. if you destroy your power base, which is what all these crazy greens want, including biden, you are going to destroy the country. you are going to destroy our jobs. you are going to destroy the middle-class.nc you are going to destroy our way of life. i mean, you know, it is interesting, we shouldn't worry
about gym equipment and we have lower expectations, as you quoted "the washington post," this crowd on the far left, which despises free enterprise capitalism, they don't want growth, they don't want prosperity, they don't want jobs. they don't care about typical middle-income families. what they want is a left-wing ideological agenda, which has no basis in fact, and that's why they are crazed about global warming, and they will destroy our power base. that is why they want to tax large and small businesses, and the burden of that will fall on middle-class people. that is why they want to create incentives not to work. listen, sean, i have to give manchin some credit, because he is out there saying these entitlements and social welfare programs should have work -- you should not be eligible unless you are looking for a job and they should be strictly means tested.
i've got to give -- >> sean: got to run -- if manchin stands up for the people of west virginia, he is not going along with this crap, end of sentence. larry kudlow, great to have you. we are way behind, larry, got to run. keep in mind tonight, biden is battling numerous self-inflicten crisis at home and abroad. now the administration plans to exempt some afghans that served -- that were the old taliban government. he is going to take them -- they are on no-fly list, he is going to lift the no-fly list. in other words, let them come into america. did they change their values all of a sudden?n? against this radical sharia law that they imposed on the people when they were in charge of the islamic emirates of afghanistan? meanwhile, biden's special envoy is now warning that the u.s. must accept and prepare for a fully nuclear iran, you mean people that chant "death to america, death to israel," we
are going to let them get nuclear weapons and we are okay with that? aeand joe's defense department, intel community had no clue apparently whatsoever about china's new hypersonic weapons that can deliver nuclear weapons? they welcome the stiff competition? and biden's silence on china's repeated "reunification" or take over or really threats, with taiwan, it's been deafening. and joe has not lifted a finger to help taiwan and stopping china and their invasion of taiwan air space with their fighter jets day and night. here with reaction to all of that, former secretary of state mike pompeo, who is speaking with us, by the way, one near the uss midway and san diego. great to see you, mr. secretary. 66 days now, americans trapped behind enemy lines. let's start with the china question first, then go to iran than afghanistan. on china's clear political ambitions to reunify with
taiwan, joe biden is not lifting a finger. what should he be doing? >> what we did for four years, sean, was make clear to the people of taiwan that we would be there to support them, to provide what they needed so they could defend themselves and we made clear to the chinese communist party that it was totally unacceptable if they took military action against the island of taiwan. those two things, president trump was very clear, prepared to defend. they could see we did that elsewhere in the world, soleimani, using nuclear weapons, crossing president trump's redline. i think they all knew we were serious about protecting americans. the debacle in afghanistan, the iranians fired missiles from the gaza strip into israel, have all shown american weakness, and the four things you walk through tonight, those are all things where america is showing weakness and when you do that, our adversaries will do everything they can to put us at risk and to crush us. >> sean: well, and i didn't even mention the rush apart. now let me go to the iranian
part. if, in fact, you marry this "death to america, death to israel" mantra, "convert or die" mantra of the iranian mullahs and empower them with nuclear weapons, which now the biden administration's signaling, i guess they will accept, what is the risk to the world at that point? s to me, it seems very real because i imagine the mullahs might be thinking they are doing god's will by firing that weapon at either israel or the u.s. or another country.y.in >> i can't believe they are going to permit this to happen. president biden is on record multiple times saying he will never permit iran to have a nuclear weapon. i saw what robert malley, the special envoy, began to signal, if you are the israelis, youea know you can't live with an iran with a nuclear weapon.f i must say this puts them at real risk and puts the whole world at risk, proliferate these nuclear weapons. it may not be the case that they will fire them, they could
distribute them. iran is known for selling weapons all across the world. this is a very serious matter. we were determined. we delivered, putting the harshest sanctions on the ayatollah and his henchmen that iran had ever seen. isolated them, built up friendships with the israelis, the abraham accords. this is how you deter aggression.sh allowing iran to get a nuclearco weapon puts our partner and friend israel at risk, it puts the gulf at risk, greatest riskt for the united states of america, as well. >> sean: let me bounce back to china because i meant to ask about this hypersonic weapon. apparently the biden administration didn't see it coming. their defense department didn't see it coming. their intel community didn't see it coming. not only -- not only are they shoving it in our face, they are capable apparently of launching nuclear weapons with this new technology. now, the biden administration said they welcome stiff competition. to me, that is a clear and present danger to the
united states of america. >> the fact that they claim they welcome stiff competition is just so odd to say about the t chinese communist party. these aren't competitors. this is an adversary who has made clear they want the world to look like they're marxist, leninist, ideological world. now this capability, flies multiple the speed of sound, that is what hypersonic translates into, is very difficult to defend against. the united states under president obama did nothing to build up defensive systems. we began that work and begin to build our own set of capabilities. this is really important. the fact the chinese now can deliver at least a missile component of this program to within a couple dozen miles, think how big los angeles is, right, to within a couple thousand miles of the target is a serious matter and when our department of defense and the president himself must take seriously and begin to respondil to, not by claiming they welcome that kind of stiff competition. that is just -- that is just crazy. >> sean: 79 days ago,
joe biden said he would not leave a single american behind in afghanistan. 66 days ago, he abandon americans, their families, thousands of green card holders, and tens of thousands of our afghan allies. he hasn't mentioned any of them f in 49 days. do you have any hope, outside of outside groups or joe biden's plan to bribe the islamic emirates of afghanistan to get our people back? >> sadly, i'm counting on outside groups, private citizens. i've been working with them, trying to make sure we get every last american out of there. i hope the government will do their share, but there is no evidence they are prepared to do that, sean. >> sean: never thought i'd see that, mr. secretary, in my lifetime. never thought i'd see americans abandoned behind terrorist lines after a president promises he wouldn't do it. thank you for being with us, sir, we appreciate it. when we come back straight ahead, biden reportedly moving illegal migrants around the country, dropping them off 2:00, 3:00, 4:00 in the morning in the middle of the night.

at night, sometimes early in ths morning, flight tracking records also from august show these planes full of illegal immigrants landing in the middle the night, 2:00 a.m., 3:00 a.m., 4:00 a.m., resettling illegal immigrants in the middle of thei night, no transparency whatsoever, no explanation from team biden. is it the biden united sanctuary states of america, where he gets to pick and choose what laws he enforces and what laws he doesn't? he gets to aid and abet in thet lawbreaking, here is how circlef back, chief propagandist at the white house jen psaki remanded when asked about it by our own peter doocy, take a look. >> why is the administration flying thousands of migrants from the border to florida and new york in the middle of the night?tr >> i'm not sure if it is the middle the night but let me tell you what is happening here. >> 4:29 a.m., very early in the morning -- >> early flights, earlier than you might like to take a flight.
>> sean: remember, wasn't it chief propagandist psaki that said oh, we do not need to give covid tests to these illegal immigrants or they do not need to show proof of vaccination because they are not going to be here very long? it appears they are going to be e here forever. may be jen can circle back on that lie because jen, you do know that is a lie. how about an apology for that? of course we know that was just another biden administration border lie, just like this is not a crisis at all lie. senator ted cruz responding to all of this open borders chaos, he has a new bill that would establish a new port of entry in democratic-led communities likew north vermont, where bernie sanders spent his summers in one of his multiple houses. or martha's vineyard, where democrat elites host their cocktail parties, where barack obama had, remember that big, maskless birthday party. here to explain more, texas senator ted cruz. senator, welcome back. the fact they're doing doing at
2:00 a.m. and 4:00 a.m. in the morning pretty much proves what we have always known, that you get special, preferential treatment if you don't respect our laws, our borders and sovereignty, no covid tests, no vaccine mandate, and you get free transportation to whatever state they're going to send you to in the dark of night. now, to me, that is lawbreakings to you, what is the solution? >> well, look, you are exactly right, joe biden and kamala harris have a political problem. their political problem is their policies on the border have produced an absolute catastrophe, absolute chaos, 2 million people expected to cross illegally this year and you get children being physically assaulted, sexually assaulted, you have women being raped, covid positivity rates at the biden cages in south texas, the covidi positivity rates when i was back down there three or four weeks ago were 24%, and they have no
solution because they have made a promise to the radical open borders left that they won't enforce the law, so their only answer is hide it, so there is a reason you are seeing flights an 2:30 in the morning, 4:00 in the morning, because they want too hide it and are counting on the corrupt corporate media being complicit in covering it up. that is why i introduced the bill you just reference, called stopped the surge act, and it's very simple. it creates 13 new ports of entry, so most of the illegal aliens are coming to the stategs of texas, my home state. it's okay, if you are fine with 2 million illegal immigrants, let's send them to where you like to hang out, so the 13 a ports of entry my bill creates are block island, rhode island, greenwich, connecticut, martha's vineyard, massachusetts,s cambridge, massachusetts, governor's island, new york, rehoboth beach, delaware, where joe biden likes to relax, nantucket, massachusetts, newport, rhode island,
palo alto, california, yountville, california, which is of course where the french laundry is, where gavin newsom likes to party when he forces other people to shut down,wh st. helean, california, and as you mentioned, north hero, vermont, where bernie sanders has one of his vacation homes. you know, sean, you live in the craziness that is manhattan. how exactly do you think do you think the rich, stuck up liberals in nantucket or martha's vineyard would react if they saw 10,000, 20,000, 50,000, 100,000 illegal aliens being dropped off week after week after week in the vineyard.0, do you think obama would welcome them into his party? do you think they would be thrilled with that? >> sean: first of all, i don't live in new york city, i live outside of the city. y i try to hide as often as i can. that is point number one. point number two, i mean, no, they don't want us in their backyard, and you are right.
why does your state of texas now have to have your governor abbott, and i really sympathize with him, because he is now up against the federal government that is aiding and abetting lawbreaking, now he's going to take $3 billion of texas taxpayer dollars to now try and build the wall and protect theol people, the bordes of texas, but that is not his job. and then when people get into the country illegally, he doesn't have the authority to throw them out. he is trying to, he is going to court. he has called up the national guard. is there anything that he is missing? because i don't see it. >> look, the fundamental problem is under our immigration law, it is the federal government that has the power to deport, and we have seen presidents that do a lousy job of that. barack obama did a lousy job of it. what we have never seen it as a president like joe biden, that just absolutely refuses to do it, just defies federal law
whole-scale, and you know, let's take a community like del rio, we have been talking about del rio a lot y lately. i was in del rio a couple weeks ago. del rio is a small town, the population of del rio is about 35,000. in one day, there were over 15,000 illegal immigrants, mostly from haiti, one day, under the bridge there in del rio. that is nearly half the population of the city, and i have to say, in response to my bill today, it has been fun seeing democrats pull their hair out and explain why it is a terrible bill. the governor of rhode island said "well, i can't say anything nice about this bill at all, all i can do is insult it," i responded to the governor, gosh, it seems to me you can only say 1 of 2 things. i you can either say "sure, we g would love to see 2 million illegal immigrants in rhode island." number two, if that is a bad thing, "gosh, maybe joe bidenn and kamala harris shouldn't be inflicting this massive surge on
texas and the rest of the country." you cannot have it both ways. either it's a bad thing and these are hypocrites who want to see illegal immigrants in your communities but not their privileged enclave. >> sean: i agree with you, i wish i had the vote to support it. thank you, senator.s when we come back, meghan mccain, she is now speaking out about the toxic culture on the show, that hard-hitting news show "the view," following her recent exit. she will join us exclusively, first tv interview since leaving. later, terry mcauliffe, he got very testy with a reporter, and he ended the interview. we've got the tape, and we will share it, straight ahead. ♪ ♪ interview. interview. we've got the tape interview. we've got the tape i am totally blind. and non-24 can throw my days and nights out of sync, keeping me from the things i love to do. talk to your doctor, and call 844-214-2424.

moments in my new audible memoir that i speak about. the last moment was actually my second day back from maternity s leave, and i had very severe postpartum anxiety, and that moment triggered a panic attack backstage, i vomited, and my office, it was horrible, i started crying between commercial breaks, and it was the moment that i just thought my four years in an experiment in left-wing media had come to end, because i really enjoyed my four years on "the view" in the sense i found it a great challenge, it is a huge platform, people watch it, it is the number one show in daytime, but you are targeted if you're the token conservative and you are treated differently. it's been interesting having my book excerpts released today because people just don't seem to be surprised at all, but there is validation in hearing it from my mouth, and i felt like it was really time for me to show my story instead of having it through the lens of the liberal media and the liberal people who were leaking
internally on the show i worked on, and i feel like it was important for mothers to hear that it is okay, you don't have to put yourself or yourr pregnancy in a position where you could possibly have youron health or your mental health pu in a position of toxicity, and i decided to leave after i became a mother, and that was ultimately the game changing moment for me. >> sean: meghan, you went as far as to say you felt like you had been slapped. you called the work environment toxic, direct, and purposeful hostility. and none of that looked fun to dme. and i can say, complete honesty, i've had minor skirmishes here and there with a few on-air talent, but nothing like this at all, ever, not even close. this is like a cancerous environment. >> yeah, and it's all very personal, that's the thing, being a conservative woman in mainstream media is deeply threatening, being a woman who can hold her own on a show like that proved to be ultimately threatening, so it became more and more personal the stronger
the show got, that was the ironic part of it, the better the show did, after we won an emmy, we were on the cover is the most important political show in america, i feel like the toxicity got worse and worse and i felt the more successful i was on "the view" and the more moments i helped get them in the more i pressed liberal candidates and liberal guests on the show, the worse it got for me backstage and ultimately started spilling out on air. look, i was at fox news before i went to "the view," and i probably would not have survived emotionally the past, you know, five years of my life between my dad passing of cancer and everything i speak about in my memoir happening atee "the view" and other things in my personal life, if it were not for the women i met at fox news, janice dean, there is an entire category on kat timpf, i had a sisterhood at fox that i lost at "the view" and i know what womem supporting women looks like because i had it when i worked at fox news, and now i know what the entire opposite experiencei
is, and honestly, it's been difficult to open up to people like you, sean, but i thought it was important to say there is a real trauma that is involved l when you are targeted and targeted and targeted for not voting for president obama, for being a pro-life woman, and ian don't think people who go into liberal spaces, which isg basically every other space except fox news in media, i don't think you should be punished for it, and i don't think your personal life should be impacted, and that is unfortunately exactly what happened to me. >> sean: you tell the story that your dad encouraged you to take the job. why? >> he loved the show. it's a mainstream show, and i do think it is important that we have to fight the culture war in their spaces because quite frankly i think we arere losing it, and he thought they needed a strong conservative. i there had been a whole host of republican and so-called republican women, women who claim to be republicans that are not, in my opinion, who had co-hosted the show and failed, he thought i was up for the job, and i did everything he told me to do so i did it, and i actually really enjoyed the
first year and a half of the show. but like i said, as i grew stronger and more and more people would come on the show and i would really hold liberali guests' feet to the fire, i felt a lot of backlash, both internally and externally at the show, but it shouldn't come as a surprise to you. you've seen the show. i think anyone who has watched even a clip -- >> sean: listen, i used to do the show -- >> not surprised by anything i'm saying. >> sean: last time i did the show i was sitting next to rosie o'donnell and it became a screaming match and barbara walters couldn't stop it. iti "we'll go to break now." i'm like, why am i wasting my time in the middle of this, because i don't go to bed until 4:00 a.m. anyway. there were a lot of issues, and i did support your dad, as you know, in 2008, and i also had political disagreements with your dad, very strong ones, especially on the health care vote, i was pretty unhappy with it. your dad was a guy that was
willing to have a lot of conflicts with people, and that happened after his funeral, too, when campaign managers and even governor palin apparently, in this leaked list, weren't invited to the funeral. why did that all happen? >> yeah, i actually have a chapter about this in my book where i have a whole new lens of viewing how sarah palin was treated and how the people working for my father's campaign really, you know, in my opinion, treated her really horribly, set her up for failure. i think when you are seeing katie couric talk about how ruth bader ginsburg, with her book, and i thought obviously she probably put sarah palin in a position to look bad -- and by the way, nicole wallace was the person who facilitated that interview, who now has a show on msnbc, and i just, as i've gotten older, i fell in love with a really deeply conservative man who runs "the federalist," like the old
adage, if you're young, you're conservative, you don't have a heart, when you're old, you're not conservative, you don't have a brain. and i really hope culture has some redemption for sarah palin in the same way we have for so many other women right now. >> sean: well, we wish you a lot of luck with your audiobook and we look forward to see what you do in the future and wish you the best. meghan, thanks for being with us. when we come back, terry mcauliffe snapping at a reporter for not asking the questions he wanted asked. straight ahead, we have the tape. ♪ ♪ e snapping at a e snapping at a reporter for not a a e snapping at a reporter for not a a it's so good to see you. you too! so really, how are you? oh well, look! that's what we're both taking right now, fanapt. you know it's really been helping me manage my schizophrenia. i used to hear these terrible voices. loser! you're such a failure. you're so embarrassing. i used to feel like everyone was staring at me.
