Ben Carson reacts to Obama's Trump bashing; Trump's foreign policy adviser responds to Clinton's attacks

This is a rush transcript from "Hannity," June 2, 2016. This copy may not be in its final form and may be updated.

SEAN HANNITY, HOST: All right, we'll continue to monitor Donald Trump's rally and bring you any news as it happens tonight.

And coming up, Hillary Clinton -- she went after Donald Trump today in what was supposed to be a foreign policy speech. Our panel is going to weigh in.

And later tonight...

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA: America cannot shirk the mantle of leadership. We can't be isolationists. It's not possible.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

HANNITY: President Crybaby back at it again today, taking shots at Trump, talk radio and Fox News. We'll get reaction. Plus, Laura Ingraham is here tonight.

That and more right here as "Hannity" continues.

(COMMERCIAL BREAK)

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

DONALD TRUMP, R-PRESUMPTIVE PRESIDENTIAL NOMINEE: Remember Hillary Clinton used to hate Obama! She used to hate him!  Bill Clinton hated him! Bill Clinton hated him! He called Bill Clinton a racist, do you remember that? Bill Clinton hated him! And Hillary Clinton hated Obama! Now it's, Yes, sir, Mr. President, sir. Yes, sir. What would you like? What would you like me to say here, sir?

The only reason she's behaving like this and the only reason she's been dragged so far left, believe me, is she doesn't want to go to jail over the e-mails, OK? Believe me, that's the only reason.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

HANNITY: Donald Trump moments ago responding to Hillary Clinton, who earlier today was supposed to give a foreign policy speech, but instead, she used the platform to launch vicious attacks that kind of weren't that funny against Donald Trump.

Here with reaction, Salem radio nationally syndicated talk show host Larry Elder, Fox News senior correspondent Geraldo Rivera, and Fox News contributor Monica Crowley.

What he said is true because if James Comey, Geraldo, comes up with a criminal referral, then the Obama Justice Department gets to decide. And you know, he went into this about David Petraeus and the double standard and a disgrace to the nation and the laws that were broken, and she's guilty as hell...

GERALDO RIVERA, FOX NEWS CORRESPONDENT: Would you characterize what he just said as vicious also? You characterized Hillary Clinton as vicious in her attack on Donald Trump today...

HANNITY: Well...

RIVERA: ... and Donald Trump today saying she's -- you know, she's a hair's breadth away from an indictment, if he gets the job of the White House, he's going to have this...

HANNITY: Would you like to go through the areas where we know she lied as it relates to the e-mail scandal?

RIVERA: This a terrible day for Donald Trump. I mean, we love the guy, but going after that Hispanic judge based on his ethnicity...

HANNITY: What does the...

RIVERA: Now, if he doesn't like what I say right now, is he going to say that I'm a Hispanic, and you know, therefore I have my credibility...

HANNITY: Geraldo, you got to the finals on his show! What are you...

(CROSSTALK)

RIVERA: What if it was an Irish guy?

HANNITY: I got a question...

RIVERA: What if it was an Irish guy?

HANNITY: What is an Irish seven-course meal? A sixpack and a potato.

(LAUGHTER)

HANNITY: OK? Now, I got a question...

RIVERA: Irish amnesia. You only remember the insults.

HANNITY: That's right!

(LAUGHTER)

HANNITY: What does La Raza mean?

(CROSSTALK)

RIVERA: ... the race.

HANNITY: The race. OK, now...

(CROSSTALK)

HANNITY: Now, he is not a member of the advocacy group, but he is a member of...

RIVERA: A group that has La Raza in the title.

HANNITY: ... La Raza, the race, Lawyers Association of California...

(CROSSTALK)

HANNITY: ... Chicano and Latino -- wait a minute! There's more to this, though!

RIVERA: You're talking about the federal judge in the Trump University class action fraud suit in the San Diego federal court.

HANNITY: That's right. Now...

RIVERA: Now, first of all, as a lawyer, to criticize the sitting judge litigating your case during the litigation is the height of folly!  Secondly, to do it because he is Mexican...

HANNITY: That's not what it is.

RIVERA: Sean, please!

HANNITY: But a member of a group called The Race -- let me go to Larry Elder. And there's more information that we know. Now, the law firm Robbins Geller, appointed the judge in this particular case to represent a plaintiff in the Trump University class action suit has a connection to Hillary beyond the $2,700 campaign contribution from the firm chairman.  Now, it seems that Robbins Geller paid the Clintons nearly a half a million dollars!

Now, when you put those two things together, I think that Donald Trump has a good case to make that there should be a recusal based on somebody, a part of an organization, donating and part of a firm connected to the case appointment giving that much money to the Clintons, don't you?

LARRY ELDER, RADIO TALK SHOW HOST: Right. Well, I agree with Geraldo.  It's kind of a bold strike to go after the lawyer (sic) that's presiding over your case and -- but he does have an argument for recusal.

But I got to tell you, I think Donald Trump should have settled this thing a long time ago and not give somebody some sort of talking point. As far as I'm concerned, it's a minor issue, and for him to get this upset is similar to Bill Clinton not settling with Paula Jones years ago and then later on, fast forward, settling with her for $800,000. If he hadn't had his ego involved, he could have gotten this thing out of the way. I think Donald Trump should have settled this a long time ago.

HANNITY: What do you think, Monica Crowley?

MONICA CROWLEY, FOX NEWS CONTRIBUTOR: Well, I think that we're trying to apply standard conventional rules to a completely unconventional candidate here.

Donald Trump -- there's a method to his madness on this. There is the legal point that Larry and Geraldo have raised about, Well, you know, you're suggesting that he can't be impartial, but that's not what he's doing, Sean. He is making a political point.

He's going out there and sowing the seeds of doubt about this judge. And by the way, the New York state attorney general is a Democrat who is a big Clinton supporter, and he helped to bring this case to pass. What Trump is doing is going out there, making political arguments about this case, and that's winning voters over, and that's what he cares about more than anything else.

HANNITY: You know, the front page of USA Today has "litigator in chief."  Do you know how many times Donald Trump has won a lawsuit? 450. How many times do you think he's lost?

RIVERA: I have no idea. I know that he's in court more than anybody that's ever run for president.

HANNITY: Only 38 times! He wins!

RIVERA: But my point, Sean, is today, he was endorsed by the speaker of the House, Paul Ryan. Finally, he got the big kahuna...

(CROSSTALK)

RIVERA: ... the highest-ranking member of the United States Congress.  We'll talk about that as the summer progresses. But here he has -- that should have been the headline for Donald Trump today. Finally, he has coalesced the Republican Party behind him. Instead, we're talking about Hillary Clinton makes all these jabs, and instead of going quid pro question and -- and -- or rather...

HANNITY: He just ripped her to shreds!

RIVERA: But where is the -- there was no -- she did her best speech in the campaign by far was today.

HANNITY: Oh, my God!

(CROSSTALK)

RIVERA: Trump could have responded...

HANNITY: Oh, because she's not shrill?

RIVERA: ... substantively. Instead...

HANNITY: You know, Monica, you've followed this as close as anybody. What did we learn from the IG report? That Hillary Clinton claiming her e-mail account was well known, the IG says not true. Hillary Clinton claiming there's no evidence that there was a breach of the server. Well, the IG report said they had to shut down the server because of hacking attempts.

We know, for example, the IG said Colin Powell did not use a personal server, as Hillary Clinton is trying to make the claim. We also learn from the IG that Secretary Clinton's production was incomplete and she didn't participate in the investigation.

She -- and he took that apart step by step! She is an ethically challenged woman, and as close -- the closer she gets to getting this nomination, the more people dislike her and the more difficult it becomes for her!

CROWLEY: Yes, you'll remember in the early 1990s, Bill Safire in The New York Times wrote a column in which he called the Clintons congenital liars, and her specifically. We know that the most problematic scandals for any politician, but especially somebody like Mrs. Clinton, are the scandals that reinforce a preexisting notion about that candidate. In Mrs. Clinton's case, it is that she is congenitally dishonest, fundamentally unlikable and is constantly issuing a parade of lies.

HANNITY: Yes.

CROWLEY: The State Department IG report reinforced all of that. And what Donald Trump is doing is playing the game by a different set of rules. He is not a standard Republican presidential candidate like a Mitt Romney or John McCain who was playing by gentlemen's rules. This is a man who wants to win...

HANNITY: And by the way...

(CROSSTALK)

RIVERA: How does he win the election with no Spanish people voting for him?

HANNITY: That's an assumption you're making...

(CROSSTALK)

RIVERA: Mitt Romney got 27 percent! What's he going to...

(CROSSTALK)

HANNITY: Listen, I will tell you right now I do not believe that your analysis on this is going to be right because I'll tell you why. After eight years of Obama, disproportionately, it is Hispanics and black Americans that have been impacted by the horrible policies of Barack Obama that Hillary would continue...

RIVERA: He's doing everything he can to aggravate Hispanic people...

ELDER: Hey, Sean?

RIVERA: ... in a way that will drive...

HANNITY: Let me go to Larry. Larry wants to...

ELDER: Sean, yes, please. On the IG report, everything that you said is true, but at the end of the day, the DOJ is not going to indict because that's Obama's call.

But politically, she's in serious trouble. And if I were Donald Trump, I'd make the following argument. It's not just that she lied. It's not that she just didn't get approval. It's not that she passed classified information. It's that she very likely was hacked, and if she was, the terrorists probably knew that Benghazi was lightly defended and it might have precipitated the attack! So she might have blood on her hands! This is a national security tragedy...

(CROSSTALK)

HANNITY: This is the cover of the Drudge Report right now. Illegals smuggled into the U.S. from Middle East crawl under Mexican border fence.  Go to the Drudgereport.com. Look at it. Geraldo, that is resonating. I had Hispanics for Trump on my radio show...

RIVERA: Why do you bring up this, though?

HANNITY: Because the point is, you're saying that Hispanics are not supporting him! I have Latino women...

RIVERA: I'm saying that he is going out of his way to insult...

(CROSSTALK)

HANNITY: ... that judge that should have been...

RIVERA: These people should be...

(CROSSTALK)

HANNITY: ... money to Hillary and then...

(CROSSTALK)

RIVERA: Remember Ronald Reagan? Latinos are Republican. They may not know it yet, but they are!

HANNITY: Wait a minute! You're saying that the only way...

RIVERA: I'm saying that...

(CROSSTALK)

HANNITY: ... only way Republicans are going to get the vote of a Latino is to support illegal immigration?

RIVERA: No. I'm saying that the way to get Latino voters is to treat people with respect and...

(CROSSTALK)

RIVERA: ... questioning the ethnicity of the judge -- you know, the reporter, the ABC reporter, Tom Llamas...

HANNITY: If you were -- if I was...

RIVERA: ... was a sleaze...

HANNITY: ... part of the group called The Race, what would you think?

RIVERA: La Raza has been around forever! And La Raza...

HANNITY: I didn't ask you...

(CROSSTALK)

HANNITY: If I was part of a group called The Race, you would think I'm racist!

RIVERA: What if you were in the St. Patrick's Society and you fly the Irish flag?

HANNITY: St. Patrick was a saint! St. Patrick is -- has nothing to do with the race!

(LAUGHTER)

HANNITY: Being Irish is -- oh, stop!

RIVERA: Trump needs a person like me to just calm him down when it comes to...

HANNITY: You're the last person he needs! If he listens to you, we're in trouble because we'd never get the fence built. Larry, last word.

ELDER: Sure. What Obama did yesterday was blame FOX News and he blamed right-wing radio on talking down the economy. Your friend and mine, Sean, Tavis Smiley, is not part of a neocon right-wing radio.

HANNITY: That's true.

ELDER: He says the black economy has suffered under the Obama era, and those are just facts. And you can't blame that on somebody else. But at least he's evolving, Obama is. He used to blame Bush.

(LAUGHTER)

HANNITY: Yes, that's right. And he is a crybaby. He's always blaming somebody. Eight years in and he blew the economy, and now he's got to blame someone. All right, so I'll take the blame along with the whole (INAUDIBLE)

RIVERA: That's right. You deserve it.

HANNITY: It's really Geraldo's fault.

(CROSSTALK)

RIVERA: I'm the swing voter.

HANNITY: All right, coming up next tonight on "Hannity"...

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

OBAMA: America cannot shirk the mantle of leadership. We can't be isolationists. It's not possible.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

HANNITY: All right, President Crybaby taking a swipe at Donald Trump, talk radio and the FOX News Channel earlier today. That particular comment was made at the Air Force Academy. We'll check in with Dr. Ben Carson. He's here to react.

And later, Hillary Clinton viciously attacks Donald Trump during a foreign policy speech. Walid Phares and Lisa Boothe -- they're here to weigh in.

That and more tonight on "Hannity."

(COMMERCIAL BREAK)

HANNITY: And Welcome back to "Hannity." So the president continues to take shots at Donald Trump. Earlier today, while delivering the commencement address at the U.S. Air Force Academy, well, the president took a veiled swipe at Mr. Trump. Take a look.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

OBAMA: America cannot shirk the mantle of leadership. We can't be isolationists. It's not possible in this globalized, interconnected world. In these uncertain times, it's tempting sometimes to pull back and try to wash our hands of conflicts that seem intractable, let other countries fend for themselves.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

HANNITY: Then he attacked the Fox News Channel and conservative talk radio. Here's what he said.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

OBAMA: So their basic story is America's working class, America's middle class, families like yours, have been victimized by a big, bloated federal government run by a bunch of left-wing elitists like me.

And the government's taking your hard-earned tax dollars, and it's giving them to freeloaders and welfare cheats. And we're strangling business with endless regulations, and this federal government is letting immigrants and foreigners steal whatever jobs ObamaCare hasn't killed yet.

I haven't, you know, turned on FOX News or listened to conservative talk radio yet today, but I've turned them on enough over these past seven-and- a-half years to know I'm not exaggerating in terms of their story. That's the story they tell.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

HANNITY: All right, well, here with reaction, former 2016 Republican presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson.

Dr. Carson, I did a little investigating because he's attacking what I do and my colleagues in radio and TV. Let's see, median household income has fallen nearly $2,000 under President Obama. The number of Americans in poverty has increased almost 10 million under President Obama. The number of Americans on food stamps has gone up 12.4 million. We have a 40 percent increase in average health care premiums in spite of what he promised on that rate.

Home ownership rate has dropped by four percent since he has been there.  The labor participation rate is at the lowest level since March of 1978.  We lost 264,000 manufacturing jobs since he's been there, and he will accumulate than every other president before him combined before he leaves office. Now, by every measure, I would say that's a failure, not a success. Your reaction to his whining.

BEN CARSON, R-FORMER PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE: I would say you're right about that. But the interesting thing is what they like to do is redefine everything and take the people who really don't have a deep understanding of what's going on and manipulate them. This is the very thing that Thomas Jefferson and Benjamin Franklin were afraid of. If people were not well- informed and didn't have the proper information they would be easily manipulated.

And I think the progressives understand that and they've taken tremendous advantage of it. They also speak poorly of people, but when Donald Trump does the same thing they say he's being un-presidential. Barack Obama does the same thing, but he does it in a more gentlemanly way. But it's basically the same thing.

HANNITY: He overpromised. There were no shovel ready jobs. And he failed spectacularly. He said $9 trillion in debt was irresponsible and unpatriotic. It's going to be 20 when he leaves. The numbers of people out of the labor force, in poverty, on food stamps up by millions and millions, and he says by every economic measure that's the case. And then he says he's a success.

Now, if Hillary has tied herself to him, does she get to make that case successfully? Or do those people that are suffering in the millions, do they reverse course and change parties in terms of who they vote for?

CARSON: Well, I'm certainly hopeful that many of the people, many of the downtrodden in our society will actually start to listen, because you're going to see the Republican Party, you're going to see this in the platform and you're going to see Donald Trump talking about the ladders of opportunity that are going to be presented that will allow a person on the basis of their God given talents and their willingness to work hard to climb that ladder of opportunity and become part of the strength and fabric of this country.

That's what Republicans and conservatives should represent, not keeping people in bondage and then fooling them into believing that somehow you are their savior. They do a very good job of it, but I think there's a lot of people starting to wake up and think for themselves, and they're going to be in big trouble.

HANNITY: The people that have been disproportionately impacted by these horrible economic policies are minorities in America, black Americans, Latino Americans. And back to my argument with Geraldo. I don't think people that are suffering are going to vote for the same policies that have not lifted them up or given them an ladder of opportunity. So thank you, Dr. Carson.

CARSON: Or at least they'll sit at home and they won't come out and vote.  But I'm hoping that they will actually turn this thing around because we have a lot of programs that are going to be available and it's going to be help an awful lot of people.

HANNITY: Yes. You got to think that's 90 some odd million Americans out of the labor force. Those are millions of families suffering. One in five American families don't have a single family member working. One in six men 18 to 34 are either in jail or out of a job. These are horrible numbers.

CARSON: Keep throwing those numbers out.

HANNITY: I will.

CARSON: People need to hear that.

HANNITY: All right, Dr. Carson, thank you.

Coming up, Hillary Clinton was supposed to given a foreign policy speech.  She spent most of her time attacking Donald Trump. Walid Phares, Lisa Boothe will weigh in. That's coming up next.

And then later, a new poll shows how unhappy Republicans are with GOP lawmakers in Washington. Laura Ingraham talks about that and more as we continue.

(COMMERCIAL BREAK)

HANNITY: Welcome back to "Hannity." This is a Fox News alert. Donald Trump has just finished his speech in San Jose, California. As you can see some of the protesters outside, things getting a little bit rowdy out there.  We'll keep an eye on it throughout the hour for you right here on the Fox News Channel.

Joining us now with reaction, we have Fox News Middle East analyst, foreign policy adviser to Donald Trump, Dr. Walid Phares, and the president and founder of High Noon Strategies Lisa Boothe. What's fascinating as you look at these protestors, we learn so much. They're plants. They're either union people, Hillary supporters, Bernie supporters, and we learn a lot about them. They throw eggs at little children and women coming out of these events. The media uses them and orchestrates and choreographs their positions in the case of Telemundo. What do you think?

LISA BOOTHE, WASHINGTON EXAMINER CONTRIBUTOR: I think that was very telling, right, because that's what the mainstream media wants. They want to be able to point to these protests and say people don't like Donald Trump. Guess what. He's turning out tens of thousands of people at some of these rallies. So people do like Donald Trump. He won the Republican primary, and it's time for them to treat him as the Republican nominee.  We've seen that they've just not given him the credit for being the Republican nominee. They're not treating Hillary Clinton this way. And further, these protesters are actually helping to elect Donald Trump because I think they're seeing how disrupted in the behavior that they're conducting.

HANNITY: Everything else seems to boomerang back. Now we find out that in the case of they went after Trump University, we see that Bill Clinton is the president of this laureate college, and there's millions of complaints in all these countries, and he made $16 million in a four year period.

BOOTHE: Or look at the Clinton Foundation and the shady ties it has to so many people. But they're not reporting on that. They don't want to report on that. You even look at with the I.G. report. I don't think it got the coverage that it deserved either.

HANNITY: Hillary gives a foreign policy speech, Walid, and she doesn't mention Benghazi. She doesn't mention the 3:00 a.m. phone call. She doesn't mention how Libya got screwed up. She doesn't mention how Mosul and Ramadi and Tikrit and Fallujah ended up in the hands of ISIS because this president literally took victory away from our soldiers that fought so hard for those cities because he had to make a political point. Does she benefit by going after Trump who is right in criticizing the bad pullout and the bad moves she made?

DR. WALID PHARES, FOX NEWS MIDDLE EAST ANALYST: Sean, Secretary Clinton is using two main arguments to attack Mr. Trump. Number one is her pedigree, that she spent four years in the State Department as the secretary of state of a great nation, super power, meeting leaders and visiting 112 countries, receiving up to maybe 1,000 briefing in total on national security, foreign affairs, meeting all these ambassadors on the one hand, and he did not.

The problem here is what have you achieved with all that pedigree? And you just mentioned it. Libya is burning, Syria is burning, Iraq is exploding, Yemen is at war. The Iran deal is not working. So there is no answer to these, so we go on forms and not on substance.

HANNITY: Let me go back to Lisa. Is there any foreign policy success short of saying, OK, kill bin Laden, because I can't think of any.

BOOTHE: And here's an important point to make about Hillary Clinton. She is running to be the commander in chief, to oversee the world's largest nuclear arsenal, the world's largest super power. We can't trust her with her e-mails. How can we possibly trust her with that kind of power?

HANNITY: I think that's a great question, and I think the question is, is the world safer after eight years of Obama, and would it be safer under Clinton? I don't think so.

When we come back, Republicans are fed up with the job the GOP lawmakers are doing. We'll also watch those protests as we continue tonight right here on "Hannity." Laura Ingraham is next.  

(COMMERCIAL BREAK)

HANNITY: This is a Fox News alert. There are protests outside of Donald Trump's rally in San Jose, California. On the ground is our own Jonathan Hunt. Jonathan, what's going on?

JONATHAN HUNT, FOX NEWS CORRESPONDENT: Sean, we so far followed the usually pattern here. The crowd was pretty passionate as they always are on both sides, shouting slogans at each other. And then as the rally wrapped up, they became a lot more rowdy. They have now gathered here.  This is about a block and a half I would say from the convention center where Donald Trump just wrapped up that rally. There's a hard core I would say of around 100, a lot of simple casual observers.

HANNITY: I see in that video, are they burning the American flag?

HUNT: There was one protester who had one of those small American flags and did indeed set fire to it. Our cameraman caught that. That's the video that you're seeing. He was cheered, that particular protester, as he set fire to the American flag by a couple of dozen around him. It was a reflection of the debate and the terrible state of the debate at times we're having in this political election cycle, Sean. And this --

HANNITY: Can you interview any of these guys?

HUNT: I could, Sean, but frankly, all you will get is curse words. That again is the level of debate that we have seen.

HANNITY: I'll take the risk. Ask them why they're there. Ask one or two guys, if they come on and curse, well, I warn our audience if you have young children watching. But hopefully they won't.

HUNT: All right, let me grab a couple of signs. Standby, Sean.

HANNITY: Jonathan is in San Jose.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: We're protesting against Donald Trump's hateful speech, his divisive racial politics, and standing in solidarity with all the working men and the people of color.

HUNT: When you say hateful speech, what exactly do you mean.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: The divisive racial --

HANNITY: What words?

HUNT: Could you tell me specifically what he said that has upset.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Have you heard his comments against Muslims? Have you heard his comments against Mexican migrants, spewing hate, nationwide, tapping into a deep vein of anti-migrant --

HANNITY: Jonathan, he was talking about --

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Islamophobia.

HANNITY: He was talking about a temporary ban until we can secure and we know that the refugees are vetted.

HUNT: Would you not agree in any way with a temporary ban as Donald Trump said while we try to work out what is going on? Is that something you think is divisive?

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: That question is so ignorant and so insulting that I refuse to answer it. Do you believe that?

HUNT: I'm not the one being interviewed. But do you think --

(CROSSTALK)

HUNT: Yes, you can. But you think that a temporary ban is wrong, it's racist and divisive?

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Absolutely. It's morally wrong. It's politically wrong.

HANNITY: Next person.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: It's unacceptable. That's why we're here. We're standing in solidarity with Muslim communities, with Mexican migrant communities, with the working classes, and people of color.

HUNT: Thanks for your comments, sir.

HANNITY: Thanks, Jonathan.

HUNT: Let me walk around here a little, Sean.

HANNITY: By the way, you've got a hard job, Jonathan. We appreciate it.  Why is he carrying the Mexican flag, that guy?

HUNT: Excuse me, sir, why are you protesting here?

HANNITY: I'm protesting because I'm against Trump because he's oppressing our people.

HUNT: How exactly is he oppressing your people?

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: He's putting us down. He's discriminating our people.  He doesn't even know when he's talking about.

HANNITY: Shouldn't people come into this country legally?

HUNT: When you say he doesn't know what he's talking about, what specifically?

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Because he's just ignorant. He's just oppressing the lower class and the middle class, white people and the minorities.

HANNITY: Should people come into the country legally?

HUNT: Immigration is your major issue?

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: I come from an immigrant family, and it pisses me off to say stuff like that, because it hits home.

HUNT: Your family I assume immigrated legally.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: My family immigrated illegally.

HANNITY: Why don't you respect our laws and sovereignty?

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: They brought me here, they came here so I can have a good future, and I got accepted into college, and stuff like that.

HUNT: Do you think the people should respect the laws of the United States and the sovereignty of the United States?

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: I think people should, if we're being oppressed we shouldn't respect the laws.

HANNITY: We shouldn't respect the laws?

HUNT: You said we should not respect the laws of the United States?

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: No, we should not respect because that's a --

HANNITY: Ask him if he knows what Mexico does to Latin American people when they come into the country illegally?

HUNT: Our anchor is asking, do you know what the Mexican government does to Latin American people when they cross Mexico's southern border and come in illegally?

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Can you repeat that?

HUNT: Do you know what the Mexican government does to those who cross over into the country illegally?

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Yes, I'm aware. I'm aware of the violence. Same thing here. There's violence here.

HUNT: What are you aware that they do? What is the violence against immigrants here and illegal immigrants?

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Immigrants here, the violence is they hunt them down.  When you go down to the border --

HUNT: Sean, that's what we warned you about, Sean. You always get these elements in this crowd. We try to keep the signs, the offensive signs is out of this as well. Probably best to hand it back to you now, Sean.

HANNITY: Real quick, we'll get reaction. Thank you, Jonathan Hunt. Lisa, pretty amazing exchange. They don't know why they're there, and of course burning the American flag and you see all the Mexican flags.

BOOTHE: I think it's cowardly to burn the American flag. We're seeing the kind of lawlessness that President Obama has been pushing. You look at his executive action on immigration. You look at his 2012 executive order as well. He's been pushing for this lawlessness that we see tonight.

HANNITY: Lisa, thank you. Thank you, Jonathan Hunt.

When we come back, more "Hannity" right after this.  

(COMMERCIAL BREAK)

HANNITY: Welcome back to "Hannity." It's time for our "Question of the Day."
