Trump: Hillary's temperament is a 'disaster'; Trump Jr.: GOP's lack of backbone forced my father to run

Donald Trump reacts on 'Hannity' to former Secret Service agent's criticisms of Clinton, discusses violent San Jose protests


This is a rush transcript from "Hannity," June 8, 2016. This copy may not be in its final form and may be updated.

SEAN HANNITY, HOST: And welcome to "Hannity." And tonight, Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are now their parties' presumptive nominees. So what is a general election matchup going to look like between these two political rivals?

Now, we asked Donald Trump about facing off against Hillary Clinton. And here's more of my interview with the presumptive Republican nominee from yesterday.


HANNITY: Let's go to a general election campaign. Hillary Clinton is the Democratic nominee. You're the Republican nominee. You know, this is two very different governing philosophies here. Break down where you see the biggest differences in your two campaigns and where America would head.

DONALD TRUMP, R-PRESUMPTIVE PRESIDENTIAL NOMINEE: Well, first of all, it would be more of the same with Obama and all those bad decisions. So many bad decisions have been made, and you look at what's going on with the jobs numbers now, a 38,000 number, which is horrible. Actually, it's one of the worst I guess in close to seven years.

You look at so many other factors economically. The country is really struggling. We're doing poorly. And we are -- I'm telling you, this country has such incredible potential.

You look also at the military, where we're really depleted. The military is in such bad shape. I don't know if you saw the feature that was on the other day where our jet fighters -- they're replacing parts from museums and they're going to plane graveyards to open up old planes and get parts for our current jet fighters, which are very old. And you have other countries with brand-new stuff. And it's very sad.

So we'll be strong on the border. We'll be great for economic development. We'll get rid of "Obama care," replace it, as you know. with something very, very good. I mean, there are so many alternatives and they'll be so good by comparison. "Obama care" -- I don't know if you saw what happened in Texas, but Blue Cross Blue Shield threw (ph) "Obama care" up 60 percent, 60 percent! And the numbers are even getting worse than that. I understand on November 1st, new numbers are going to come out which are going to blow it sky high. It's going to make it unacceptable.

HANNITY: The average...

DONALD TRUMP: And we can't allow them to change the date.

HANNITY: The average health care premium since Obama has been president is up 40 percent. "Obama care" has not helped families. You have one in five American families without a single person working. You've got one in six American males 18 to 34 that are either incarcerated or out of work, and then 95 million Americans out of the labor force. But we keep getting told -- even though they created 38,000 jobs, we're told unemployment number keeps going down.


HANNITY: Is that a case where the government just lies to us?

DONALD TRUMP: Yes, well, it's a fixed number. Look, they had the worst numbers that they've had in seven years, and the employment rate went down, which tells you what I've been saying for a long time. It's a sham. It's a scam. Look, the whole thing's a scam.

Frankly, Bernie Sanders has gone through it. He's seen it, you know, the whole thing with the rigged deal going on. And I actually saw it a little bit, but we won by so much -- I mean, we won by massive landslides. And virtually every state that we won...

HANNITY: You think Bernie...

DONALD TRUMP: ... we won by big landslides.

HANNITY: You think the system is designed -- the system was rigged from the beginning, and Bernie had no chance whatsoever.

DONALD TRUMP: I do. I think he had no chance. Unless he won by even bigger numbers, I think he had no chance. I mean, the beauty of what we did is I won by massive landslides all over the place, whether it's New Hampshire or South Carolina, Nevada, no matter where we went. And then we came to New York and we got tremendous numbers and Pennsylvania, Ohio, I mean, no matter where you look, Michigan, I won Michigan, which was amazing. But we got tremendous numbers.

And you know, Ohio was close. We did well. We ran against John. He did a good job there. And you know, so many different places -- Florida was unbelievable, the numbers in Florida. The kind of victory we had was fantastic. So you know, I think that probably helps. That helps solve a problem. Where something is rigged, you solve it by winning with massive numbers. I always say it's like the prize fighter. You go and you knock out your opponent, you don't have to worry about what they're doing.

HANNITY: What do you make of this new book, Gary Byrne (sic), former Secret Service agent -- now, interesting life he had. He was posted directly outside of the Oval Office during Bill Clinton's presidency.

And he talks about Hillary Clinton lacking the integrity and the temperament to be the president of the United States. She has an explosive temper. She's impulsive, enabled by sycophants and has the disdain for the rules that everyone else has to follow.

You think the media is fair in their coverage of that versus how they cover you?

DONALD TRUMP: Well, so far, it's got very little coverage, which is really amazing because, basically, it says her temperament is a disaster, which I know and you know and a few people know. But I don't know if the word is getting out. But this is somebody that knew them very, very well, saw her in action.

And look, she was a disaster. She doesn't have the temperament. She doesn't have a lot of things to be president, including, frankly, good judgment. Her judgment is horrible. And Bernie Sanders said that. Bernie Sanders said that her judgment is terrible. She doesn't have the judgment, the good judgment to be president. So he got something right.

HANNITY: At a lot of these rallies, we see now -- we've been able to pinpoint that there are certain groups -- for example, veterans groups associated with Hillary were in front of Trump Towers. Then we see certain other leftist groups and supporters of Bernie and Hillary organizing at Trump rallies.

It culminated in what happened in San Jose. I don't know if you saw the video. This poor woman literally was surrounded by a mob and waving the Mexican flag in her face, throwing an egg in her face, guys being chased down the road by a mob of people, getting punched and bloody and bruised.

And then the San Jose mayor blamed you for what happened with these people that were involved in this violence. What is your response to that specifically? And more specifically, when somebody like Angela Davis is urging people to, quote, "do whatever is necessary to stop Trump," do you interpret that as a threat?

DONALD TRUMP: Well, I think the mayor was absolutely a disaster. He didn't know what the hell he was doing. We had a tremendous rally with, you know, many, many thousands of people. The place was packed, and they left and they met a bunch of thugs. They were absolute thugs. And by the way, the woman -- she was incredible, the way she kept, you know, the stiff upper lip. She was incredible.

HANNITY: She was tough, yes. I agree with you.

DONALD TRUMP: She was being pelted with eggs. She was strong. This woman is, like -- she was incredible the way she handled it. And then ultimately, they let her inside because they saw what was happening was terrible.

But these are thugs. These are people that were burning the American flag. They were absolutely terrible. And frankly, the mayor should be ashamed of himself. He couldn't do the job. I think he was almost afraid to do the job.

But these were their people. These were Bernie people. They were Hillary people. These people are set out to do a mission. They're -- they're -- these aren't protesters. These are much worse than protesters. And when you see -- some of the police tell me, when you see people wearing face masks, you know, things over their face, you know they're professional agitators. And you had a lot of professional agitators. But inside that arena, that place was -- it was a love fest. Believe me.


HANNITY: And coming up, Donald Trump smashes the record for the most votes by a Republican candidate in a presidential primary. His son, Donald Trump, Jr., is here next with reaction.

And then later tonight...


TRUMP: To all of those Bernie Sanders voters who have been left out in the cold by a rigged system of superdelegates, we welcome you with open arms.

HILLARY CLINTON, D-PRESUMPTIVE PRESIDENTIAL NOMINEE: I want to congratulate Senator Sanders for the extraordinary campaign he has run.



HANNITY: Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are both courting Bernie Sanders supporters. So which candidate will they end up backing? That and more tonight on "Hannity."



HANNITY: And welcome back to "Hannity." Presumptive 2016 GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump is riding high tonight following yesterday's primaries. And with the final votes now being counted, Mr. Trump is smashing the record for the most votes received by a Republican presidential candidate in a primary season with well over 13 million. That number may be higher when it's all said and done.

Now, to put it in perspective, in 2012, Mitt Romney -- well, he took home 9.9 million total votes in the primaries, which was just short of the previous record that was held by President George W. Bush in 2000, who had 11.9 million votes.

Here with reaction, Donald Trump, Jr. How are you?


HANNITY: ... to follow your dad. That's a kind of...


HANNITY: That's a tough act to follow.

DONALD TRUMP, JR.: Never an easy act to follow, Sean. Never an easy act to follow.

HANNITY: You know, you look at this -- your dad has made the point on a number of occasions that a Republican Party that has stated for years that they want to be more inclusive, they want to build out the party, and especially a lot of blue collar, hard-working Americans that are really suffering under the Obama years have come to your dad. And I don't see every Republican saying, Hey, this is great.

DONALD TRUMP, JR.: You know what, I don't get it myself. And I know we've had this conversation both on the air and off in the past because it doesn't make sense to me. When I look at the hard-working union laborers all over the country, whether it be the guys that have built our buildings...


DONALD TRUMP, JR.: ... the guys when I walk down the streets of New York, they're wearing hard hats with Trump stickers on it. I mean, that's a historical Democratic voting bloc. I mean, they've done it ad nauseam, whether it made sense for them or not.

You know, those guys are all coming up to me, and it's not just in New York City. I mean, this is all over the country, the Teamster guys, the truckers, all these guys coming up and say, Hey, I love what your father's doing.

So you know what? Those guys -- whether the national gets on board not is almost irrelevant because I think we got the votes.


DONALD TRUMP, JR.: Those are our people. Those are the guys that are going to vote for us...


DONALD TRUMP, JR.: ... never going to vote for Hillary.

HANNITY: You know, a guy came...


DONALD TRUMP, JR.: ... they can't vote for a woman, it's they can't vote for that woman.

HANNITY: I think that's well said. A guy I met at Friendly's the other day, he worked on Trump Tower. He's a union guy.


HANNITY: And he's, like, Please do everything you can do to help Mr. Trump, please. He was so good to us.


HANNITY: And I couldn't get rid of the guy.


HANNITY: He told me story after story after story about all the things your dad did...


HANNITY: ... for the union workers and how he stood up for them and how he -- when things went wrong, he was the guy who would go and fix it.

DONALD TRUMP, JR.: Yes, and more importantly, I mean, he's got that track record without question. But as a businessman, he didn't just listen to the Harvard and Wharton MBAs. He actually spent time on those job sites. You know, most of these other guys wouldn't know who the developer is on their projects.


DONALD TRUMP, JR.: But you know, my father spent time, you know, with the sheetrock guys, right, with the guys pouring concrete, with the ladders (ph), with the guys doing, you know, rebar. Everything that -- he spent time with them. He wanted their opinions. He's listening to those guys for years because that's where he got some of his best information. You know, and I think why (INAUDIBLE) hey, he's a blue collar billionaire, because he can get in there and mix with them and talk with them, and they appreciate it. But that's where he also got real information from because, you know, the executives don't always give it to you because they don't always have it.

HANNITY: You know, it's a direct contrast, too. I'm really disappointed in people like Paul Ryan, people like Lindsey Graham. I think one of the reasons that your dad won this year -- obviously, he just broke through.


HANNITY: Obviously, it was...

DONALD TRUMP, JR.: Against all odds and...


DONALD TRUMP, JR.: ... a big machine.

HANNITY: ... really important governors, former governors, senators. These are not small people within the Republican ranks. But I think more importantly it's because Washington has failed so deeply, and he touched on that in his speech last night. And then these guys are fighting against your father, from my perspective, harder than they ever fought Obama!

DONALD TRUMP, JR.: Well, I think without question. I mean, if they showed the backbone back in the day, you know, over the last eight years that they have these days, I think you'd probably have different results, and maybe we wouldn't be even having some of these conversations. And frankly, maybe we would have actually gotten something done that wouldn't have forced my father to run and they could have kept their same old system.


DONALD TRUMP, JR.: But you know, you really see it on both sides.


DONALD TRUMP, JR.: You know, the Bernie effect, as well. I mean, people have been disenfranchised by D.C. They're disgusted with what politicians are doing across the board. I mean, look at Hillary Clinton. I mean, my father said it best last night. I mean, she turned the State Department, and the Clintons have turned government into their own private hedge fund, I mean, hundreds of millions of dollars! And I don't mean through the foundation. That's a whole different story.

HANNITY: That's a different story.

DONALD TRUMP, JR.: I mean, this is personal...


DONALD TRUMP, JR.: ... income that they've made by peddling influence, by peddling access! I mean, if we did that in the business world, we'd be arrested for (INAUDIBLE) It's...

HANNITY: I don't know how they get away with it.


DONALD TRUMP, JR.: No, if you bring up the foundation, that's probably billions, and most of the rating agencies that do charities, they won't even touch it because they're saying, It's so screwed up, we can't tell where the money is going, we don't even want to look. That's how bad it is. So you know, God knows what's happening there...


DONALD TRUMP, JR.: ... when those agencies can't rate them to see how effective and effective they are and where the money is being spent and is it being spent wisely, they can't even figure it out!

HANNITY: How does the...

DONALD TRUMP, JR.: That's scary.

HANNITY: How does she play the gender card and then she takes money from Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Kuwait, all these countries that are under sharia that oppress women...


HANNITY: ... and you can't find any criticism of the countries that gave all the money to the Clinton Foundation!

DONALD TRUMP, JR.: Do as I say, not as I do, Sean. Do as I say, not as I do. I mean, that's why -- I watched about four minutes of the speech last night thinking that maybe I'd get something profound. But I got the same old stock Hillary Clinton speech. You know, someone wrote it, she delivered it...


HANNITY: I had to run into my hour...


DONALD TRUMP, JR.: ... be able to come up with something better than the same old pandering, pandering after pandering after pandering. I mean...

HANNITY: Let me run something by you because -- by every account, watching the news coverage, your dad had a pretty tough week on the whole issue of the judge and the Trump University case. Nobody mentions the Laureate (ph) University case.

DONALD TRUMP, JR.: Oh, yes. Of course. You know...

HANNITY: The double standard. but here's my question. This was in The Wall Street Journal today. Mrs. Clinton has 21 press aides, including a communications director, a lead press secretary, a day-to-day spokesman, a traveling press secretary, a rapid response director, a rapid response spokesperson, and other handlers, spokespeople to handle the different regions and specific issues that arise.

DONALD TRUMP, JR.: And by the way...


HANNITY: How many people do you have?



DONALD TRUMP, JR.: (INAUDIBLE) communications person. And she won't deal with those people themselves. I mean, she -- when was the last time she gave a press conference? And when was the last time she gave an actual interview...


DONALD TRUMP, JR.: ... other than if it's really grossly prepared and everything is sort of spoon fed to her. I mean, that's the difference. and by the way, that's the problem with government! You have these bloated governments where they wouldn't know how to do anything...


DONALD TRUMP, JR.: We run efficiently and we always will!

HANNITY: But maybe the story could have been a one-day story, not a five- day story.

DONALD TRUMP, JR.: I don't disagree with that. And again...


DONALD TRUMP, JR.: Hey, I say I'm a builder. I build buildings, I build hotels. That's what we do for a living. I mean, we've been at this, I've been at this for four weeks now. The last time I was on the show, I was at this for two weeks. You know, I think we are learning on the go. We are figuring it out as we go.

And I think my father is also -- you know, he's an opinionated guy. He's not just going to -- he believes in something principally, he's going to stand by it and he's going to fight and he's going to say what he's going to say because that's the way he is.

That's what he's going to do for his country, very differently than the Clintons, where, hey, one week, I'm this, the next week, the winds have blown a little differently, so I'm this. I'll be whatever I want you to be -- you know, whatever you want me to be so I can be president!

HANNITY: Yes, that's phony, but I think that's also what people are rejecting this year...


DONALD TRUMP, JR.: ... without question. I mean, I think that's what people really appreciate about my father. And I saw this early on. I saw this in New Hampshire. I saw this in Iowa. I saw this early when a lot of the people that were undecided voters, they were undecided between Bernie and my father!


DONALD TRUMP, JR.: OK? It was even about political ideology. It was about, I just want someone who's going to speak the truth. I'm going to want someone that's going to actually attack real issues. I'm going to want someone who's not just going to pander, but is going to say the things I'm actually thinking, and then maybe actually act on them, not just say it to me in my face and then, well, the special interests don't really want you to do this. You know, you got $100 million contract to your friend that's at stake here, do something different.

You know, I think that's why these outside candidates have gotten in there and really crushed them. And if the system wasn't so rigged, Bernie would probably be the nominee.

HANNITY: I got to say...

DONALD TRUMP, JR.: The system was rigged so much for us, as well, but you know, we just won in a landslide...


HANNITY: Hillary didn't get the delegate count needed, the threshold. She fell short. It's the superdelegates. She has 571 to Bernie's 45.

DONALD TRUMP, JR.: It's so fake. And the people are finally seeing that government is about protecting themselves and their jobs. You know, this whole self -- you know, civil servant nonsense. I've said it 100 times. I mean, these aren't civil servants. They're self-servants. They're taking care of themselves, they're taking care of their friends, they're taking care of their cousins, their uncles, the brothers!

HANNITY: It's pretty bad.

DONALD TRUMP, JR.: It's disgusting!


DONALD TRUMP, JR.: And it's being paid for on the backs of the American people! It's being paid for by your children, my children, our grandchildren to come because we're doing these ridiculous deals for these people that no one's negotiating, no under understands the principle. And these things are going to be -- our kids and grandkids are going to be beholden to them. And they won't be able to pay it off.

HANNITY: Our kids will spend the rest of their lives...

DONALD TRUMP, JR.: Paying huge debts for stupid decisions for people effectively, you know, paying back bribes and favors! It's disgusting!

HANNITY: It's despicable.

All right, I see that the outspokenness has maybe has been passed to the next generation.


HANNITY: I think it's there. You might...


DONALD TRUMP, JR.: ... that one, I guess, but...

HANNITY: All right.

And coming up next tonight right here on "Hannity"...


TRUMP: To all of those Bernie Sanders voters who have been left out in the cold by a rigged system of superdelegates, we welcome you with open arms.

CLINTON: I want to congratulate senator Sanders for the extraordinary campaign he has run.


HANNITY: Donald Trump and Hillary -- they're courting Bernie Sanders supporters. Lisa Boothe, Doug Schoen -- they're here with reaction.

Also later tonight -- we've seen the radical anti-American violence outside of Donald Trump rallies while some of the left are calling for more chaos, more violence. We'll explain that and more tonight right here on "Hannity."


HANNITY: And welcome back to "Hannity." So last night, both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump reached out to Bernie Sanders supporters, hoping to secure their votes in November. Let's take a look.


TRUMP: To all of those Bernie Sanders voters who have been left out in the cold by a rigged system of superdelegates, we welcome you with open arms.

CLINTON: I want to congratulate Senator Sanders for the extraordinary campaign he has run.


CLINTON: As we look ahead to the battle that awaits, let's remember all that unites us.


HANNITY: And joining us now, former Clinton pollster, Fox News contributor Doug Schoen and the founder and the president of High Noon Strategies Lisa Boothe.

I'm looking at everything Bernie Sanders's people are saying. The biggest Bernie -- one of the biggest Bernie Sanders social media sites on Facebook -- they're just angry to no get-out over this! And I don't blame them. If I was a Bernie supporter, I'd be livid!

LISA BOOTHE, HIGH NOON STRATEGIES: Well, absolutely. Look, and there are a lot of natural inroads for Bernie Sanders supporters to look at Donald Trump. You look at an issue like trade, which is one of the reasons Hillary Clinton lost the Michigan primary. The majority of the Republicans and Democrats are concerned about bad trade deals taking jobs away from the United States. That's an issue that they line up more -- they line up better with Donald Trump on.

You also look at their desire for an outsider, someone who's been outside of the establishment. There is no more insider and part of the establishment than Hillary Clinton. Donald Trump is not tainted by establishment politics. So I think that's another reason they might look at him.

HANNITY: Let's look at the delegate count. All right, so Hillary Clinton needed to win the nomination outright -- she needed 2,382 delegates. OK. The delegates that she actually won, she fell short by 198, 2,184. Now, Clinton has 571 superdelegates. And Bernie has a whopping 48.


HANNITY: If I'm Bernie, I feel my candidate got screwed!

SCHOEN: I think they certainly do. Lisa's right about what I've heard, what I see on social media. There's a big "but." You got the president of the United States, who's going to do everything he can to get Bernie on board.

HANNITY: Well, his phone call didn't work too well the last time. I know he's supposed to meet with him tomorrow.

SCHOEN: It's a process, Sean. Five to one in the last Quinnipiac poll, the Bernie voters are going for Hillary over Trump. This was a big, big night for her.

Look, I've been critical of her lately and I remain skeptical about her candidacy, but she had a very good night. Trump had a bad week last week. Advantage, at least temporarily, Clinton.

HANNITY: I actually think, especially on the trade issues, job issues, that I can see a lot of these Bernie guys going for Donald Trump.

Now, we sent David Webb out. We had him ask Bernie Sanders supporters what they thought of Hillary Clinton. This is interesting. Take a look.


DAVID WEBB, FOX NEWS CONTRIBUTOR: What's the one word you would use to describe Hillary Clinton?


UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Hillary Clinton? She said it, opportunist.



WEBB: What's your one word to describe Hillary Clinton?


UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Ay-yi-yi! I don't want to use the word crook, but untruthful.


WEBB: What about you?



WEBB: What about you?


WEBB: What's the one word you would use to describe Hillary Clinton?


UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Oh, she's a liar!

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Opulent. That's the one word.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Choke (ph). Lies.

WEBB: That's two, you got one more?





HANNITY: Let's go through these again. Treacherous, untrustworthy, scary, ordinary, disconnected, establishment, dishonest, liar, opulent, choke artist, lies, disgrace, stale, a fraud.

SCHOEN: Right. If they don't vote, that's fine. But ultimately, the entire Democratic establishment will be behind Secretary Clinton.

HANNITY: It's a non-establishment year!

HANNITY: The polls are now 5 to 1 the Bernie people go for Hillary, not Trump. I'm not worried.

BOOTHE: Well, yes, those aren't exactly terms of endearment, are they!


BOOTHE: But look, Hillary Clinton's big problem is she's simply out of touch. And that's what we just heard from voters in that video segment. This is a woman who is despite amassing $100 million fortunes that she's not like the truly well-off. This is someone who said that she -- she wants to take out the coal industry. She wants coal miners to lose their jobs. That is how out of touch she is from the working class America, from you know, blue collar workers who feel so disaffected and left behind by this economy.

HANNITY: So I think you've got it. And add to that, she's a horrible politician. She has no warmth like her husband. She can't give a speech like Obama. And she could barely beat...

BOOTHE: She barely beat Bernie Sanders.

HANNITY: Barely beat him!


HANNITY: I could argue, without the superdelegates, she didn't beat him!

BOOTHE: Yes. Exactly.

SCHOEN: Donald Trump, Jr., and the whole Trump family are very compelling advocates, but Donald Trump's negative is higher now than Hillary's. And Sean, $2 billion, that's a reality, will be deployed against Donald Trump.

HANNITY: What do you think's going to be deployed against her?

SCHOEN: Well, I don't think so far they've raised that kind of money. And the Clintons play for keeps, as you know better than anyone around.

HANNITY: And you know what? You're trying to put, you know, nice wrapping around a horrible present.

SCHOEN: It's not nice wrapping. It's just political reality.

BOOTHE: And Doug, we both know that the economy is the number one issue for Americans across the country. You look at poll after poll. That is an issue that Donald Trump leads on.

SCHOEN: I agree, Lisa. And you know what? 38,000 jobs, it was the big issue. What was Trump talking about last week? A Mexican judge.

BOOTHE: Don't disagree with that.

SCHOEN: Sean, you have to agree that I'm right and he was wrong.

HANNITY: I think that was for five days, off message.

SCHOEN: Right. Right.

HANNITY: Absolutely a waste of time.

SCHOEN: That's what the Clintons are going to try and do, get him off message.

HANNITY: But with that said -- but I also think that Hillary -- remember, she has a bigger problem with men than he does with women.

SCHOEN: Look...

HANNITY: And other -- you know, she's got a huge issue here.

SCHOEN: But he's got a problem with minorities...

HANNITY: She's an unlikable woman. She can't get men to support her.

SCHOEN: The electoral map works for the Democrats.

HANNITY: That's true. I agree with that.

SCHOEN: And we also know he has a problem with minorities that he's got to fix.

HANNITY: Well, he's doing better than...

BOOTHE: I also don't think we're going to see women embrace her to the degree that she is hoping.

HANNITY: Me, either.

BOOTHE: I don't think they're going to see her...

HANNITY: Not likable.

BOOTHE: ... embrace her (ph) to the degree that they even embraced President Obama. I mean, she's not a likable woman. I mean, she's not someone that people feel connected with or to. And I think that's going to be a major problem for her.

HANNITY: I think right now, nobody can predict with certainty how this is going to play out.

SCHOEN: That is for sure.

HANNITY: There's a lot going -- a lot to happen. Thank you, both.


HANNITY: Welcome to New York, by the way.

BOOTHE: Thank you.

HANNITY: All right, coming up -- left-wing agitators now sink to new lows and are encouraging more violence like what happened outside of Donald Trump rallies.

And then later tonight --


DONALD TRUMP, (R) PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE: We're going to take care of our African-American people that have been mistreated for so long.


HANNITY: Donald Trump, he vows to help African-Americans who have been left behind thanks to Obama's failed policies. We'll check in with Dr. Ben Carson with reaction and much more tonight on HANNITY.


PATRICIA STARK, FOX NEWS CORRESPONDENT: Live from America's news headquarters, I'm Patricia Stark.

Terrorists striking near a popular open air market in Tel-Aviv. Two Palestinian men opened fire, killing four people and injuring at least five others. Israeli police say the two attackers are behind bars. They're said to be related and are from a village on the West Bank. The area has been a hotbed for violence in recent months with Palestinians carrying out many knife attacks against Israelis.

A massive wildfire burning dangerously close to homes near Yarnell, Arizona. The so-called tenderfoot fire has forced several families from their homes and we're told multiple structures are already on fire. The 300 acres large fire is burning near the area where 19 firefighters were killed in a wildfire nearly three years ago.

I'm Patricia Stark, and now back to "Hannity." For all your headlines, log on to FoxNews.com. You're watching the most powerful name in news, Fox News Channel.

HANNITY: Welcome back to "Hannity." All right, just when you thought the language of the left could not get any worse, their rhetoric may have now just sunk to a new low. On Monday a Huffington Post article written by Jesse Benn actually called the violence outside of the Trump rallies a, quote, "perfectly logical reaction." Now the piece is titled "Sorry, liberals, the violent response to Trump is as logical as any." And he went on to write, quote, "In the face of media politicians and GOP primary voters, normalizing Trump as a presidential candidate, whatever your personal beliefs regarding violent resistance, well, there's an inherent value in forestalling Trump's normalization. Violent resistance accomplishes this."

And that's not all. Late last week the Detroit Free Press, their editorial page editor, Steven Henderson, he penned an op-ed where he sarcastically called for the death of Michigan legislators, writing, quote, "We really ought to round up the lawmakers who took money and protect and perpetuate their failing charter school experiment in Detroit, we want to sew them into burlap sacks with rabid animals and toss them into the straits of, well, the Mackinaw." Really?

Joining us with reaction, conservative columnist, A. J. Delgado, from "The Rush Limbaugh Program," he's the guy that answers the phone, the one and only buddy James Golden is in New York, he's in the house, and from The Polling Company, our friend Kellyanne Conway. Good to see you all. How do you react to the madness? Imagine if Rush, me, any talk show host said that?

KELLYANNE CONWAY, THE POLLING COMPANY: No. You're accused of inciting violence even when you don't. So I'm really glad this article was written, and I'm happy in age of iPhones all the macabre actions of the gang violence, these perpetrators, are caught for all of us to see and that you're giving voice and the visibility to them, Sean.

You know, not so long ago people said that Cleveland had to take out riot insurance and the police there were really fearful of this contested convention in Cleveland for the Republicans. But it turns out that Sanders has -- he's promised a, quote, "messy convention in Philadelphia," the word he used. You have New York Times reporters and AP reports now being told by their editors that they're getting death threats.

HANNITY: Scary, right?

CONWAY: Very scary. And these people, look at them on social media.

HANNITY: Angelo Davis actually said, James, I don't know whether to call you James or Bo. But you're still, by the way, the best-dressed man in radio or TV. That's all I can say. We've been friends for 20 years.

I'm watching all this, let me show you the video. All right, now watch, first of all, this woman shows such class, surrounded by a mob with Mexican flags in her face. And they throw an egg at this woman and these people, nobody stood up for this woman. This drives me nuts. How do you not stand up for that woman and open the door and let her in? They finally did, but it took them a long time. Look at that, right at her head.

And then look at this young man that is being chased by another mob, same night, San Jose. He's running and running and running and running, and eventually gets tackled by one of these mob people who tries to get somebody in the fire truck to help him. I don't know if they heard him or not. And then he actually runs around. He's on, like, a grassy knoll. He gets tackled by one of them, gets up, has to run again. Watch here. He gets tackled in this moment, you know, by one of these guys right there, boom. And, you know, if he doesn't get up and run, the mob's going to kill him.

JAMES GOLDEN, "THE RUSH LIMBAUGH SHOW": Well, and Sean, this is not the first incidence of this, OK? Let's look at the violence this year. So look inside what the Trump rallies, who actually provoked the violence? They were not Trump people that were at Trump rallies being violent, Trump supporters. They were supporters from the outside. Who was doing the violence here, in some cases waving Mexican flags while their perpetrating the violence? These are people from the left. But it's not just this year. Look at what happened when the Tea Party was emerging and you had the black vendor that was beaten by members of the NCIU --


GOLDEN: And you couldn't get the police or law enforcement there really to respond to it or the prosecutors to actually respond to it with the severity. Yet we get lectures. Every time there's a hint of violence, you get lectures from the left including President Obama talking about civility, and that's when he's not, wink, wink, bring a gun to a knife fight.

HANNITY: By the way, most people forget that line. Remember it?

GOLDEN: That's right.

HANNITY: Let me bring in A. J. A. J., you know, it's very interesting. You have taken a very strong position early on supporting Donald Trump, and I have watched you eviscerated with hateful, spiteful, mean-spirited language I've ever seen on social media.

A. J. DELGADO, CONSERVATIVE COLUMNIST: Absolutely. It happens every day. When you look at what happened at that San Jose rally, Sean, this is the type of political violence that my family fled in Cuba, so it's really frightening to see it happening here.

But I have to say, it doesn't -- it almost doesn't surprise me because how do we expect to have a lawful society lately when we have a lawless person who just won the Democratic nomination last night, somebody who's under FBI investigation, somebody who through the Clinton Foundation was essentially selling state favors to the highest bidder?

HANNITY: Let's go to --

DELGADO: You know, when Hillary Clinton says this election is about deciding what this nation is about, she's right. It's about deciding whether to go with somebody who put our personal safety on the line for her enrichment and her improvement of her bottom line, or somebody who's putting his safety, Donald Trump, every day on the line to improve our bottom line. It's become -- starting with the Democratic nomination.

HANNITY: Quickly, how bad is it going to be in Cleveland and Philly this summer?

CONWAY: I think it's going to be pretty bad because people are looking for airtime. They confuse notoriety with popularity. And Sean, I think Donald Trump is being held responsible for the way people act at his rallies. He shouldn't bear responsibility for Trump protesters' behavior. And I just wanted to point out a couple months ago when the campaign manager for Donald Trump was accused for assault, the whole media got was obsessed -- but they wouldn't cover this. You see an assault right on the camera in front of you, they won't cover it.

HANNITY: That's assault. How bad?

GOLDEN: It has the potential to be bad, especially if Bernie Sanders insists he's going to still run even though the numbers are against him. This is the wackiest thing I've ever seen.

HANNITY: Wait a minute, she never got to the magic number without the super delegates.

CONWAY: Rigged system, corrupt, insider privilege.

GOLDEN: Apparently she did, though. One of the reports I read said --

HANNITY: Well, she's down 198 from actual voted delegates.

CONWAY: I don't feel all tingly about the first woman president.

HANNITY: Real quickly, A. J., what's going to happen this summer? How bad?

DELGADO: It's going to be awful, and people have a very clear choice. You're either with these violent, evil thugs, these monsters, or you're with Donald Trump and helping to make the country great again and helping to bring back jobs and improve our economy and have a sound foreign policy. You have two choices. Make up your mind.

HANNITY: All right, guys, good to see you all, Kellyanne, thank you, A. J. You don't come to New York enough. You need to come visit us and say hello. Come to the set. All right, guys, look at this. He's loved by everybody.

All right, coming up next tonight here on "Hannity" --


TRUMP: We're going to take care of our African-American people that have been mistreated for so long.



HANNITY: Donald Trump reaching out to the black Americans and voters who have been left behind after seven-plus years of Obama's disastrous policies. We'll check in with the one and only Dr. Ben Carson. He's next with reaction as we continue.



TRUMP: We're going to rebuild our inner cities, which are absolutely a shame and so sad. We're going to take care of our African-American people that have been mistreated for so long.



HANNITY: Welcome back to "Hannity." That was Donald Trump last night vowing to improve the lives of African-Americans if, in fact, he is elected president. Joining us now with reaction, former 2016 GOP presidential candidate, hopefully soon the head of the secretary of Health and Human Services, Dr. Ben Carson, or surgeon general, or you could do both, maybe you'll be the first person to do both jobs. I'm trying to keep you busy for the rest of your life.


HANNITY: I know you do. I throw out numbers all the time -- 95 million Americans out of the labor force, 50 million in poverty. That's 10 million more than when Obama became president, 12.5 million more on food stamps. That's 45 million. One in six American youth, men 18 to 34 incarcerated or out of work. One in five American families, not one family member has a job. It seems that the minority community by every statistic has been disproportionately impacted by the negative policies of the last eight years. Why does the minority community continually still vote, then, Democratic when they're not helping them?

CARSON: Well, because they're constantly hearing that these people are the ones who are going to save you. These are the people who made it possible for you to get this, this, or the other. And not so much thinking about, if you want to go back in history, the Republican Party was established as an abolitionist party.

HANNITY: It's the party of Lincoln. Lyndon Johnson needed Republicans for the Civil Rights Act, the Voting Rights Act.

CARSON: All of which I think have been forgotten by most people. But it is important, I think, for Republicans to really reach out to the African- American community with specifics, to talk about how, in fact we're going to talk about these jobs. You think about, for instance, the $2.1 trillion overseas, and we're going to repatriate that money.

HANNITY: That is huge. You're talking about trillion, maybe $2 or $3 trillion, right.

CARSON: And if we use some that in enterprise zone to create jobs for people, that could be the biggest stimulus package since FDR.

HANNITY: They worked. When we tried them and they actually worked.

Let me put up more statistics, but I'm not trying to overwhelm our audience with numbers, but it says a lot. If you look at median income for black American households, 2008 to 2015, that is down in actual real dollars. Then you look at food stamp participation, households. It's way up. You go from 20.8 percent to 25.5 percent. A five percent increase is millions of people.

CARSON: A lot of people. And these things are continuing to happen. And education, which is the other big issue, you look at some of the inner city schools, they are failing.

HANNITY: All of them, almost all of them.

CARSON: And yet you have politicians, they are protecting those schools rather than forcing them to get better by sending students to other places. These are the things that are hurting us as a nation.

HANNITY: But the amazing thing is that Obama with such hope, promise, yes, we can, change, change, change, all that stuff, he didn't help black Americans. He didn't help Latino Americans. They're not better off today than they were eight years ago.

CARSON: No. They're much worse off. And believe me, there are a lot of black people in this country who are waking up to this. I talk to them all the time.

HANNITY: Do you really believe that? Is this going to change?

CARSON: Well I'm hoping so because we're going to spend time actually talking to people and laying out these programs, these ladders of community that allow people to climb out of dependency and become part of the fabric of America.

HANNITY: You have a very powerful position right now. Donald Trump relies on you, meets with you, talks to you, takes advice and counsel from you. I don't see any way that you're going to be able to say no to be in his cabinet. The question is, would you want to be Health and Human Services secretary? Would you want to be the secretary of education? Would you want to be the surgeon general, not the attorney general? We'll leave that Rudy or Christie.

CARSON: What I want to do is make sure that, you know, the conservatives, Republicans, the people who believe in traditional America win, because if they don't win, what we will get is not something from with which we can recover.

HANNITY: But you were passionate during about the debates of ObamaCare and repealing and replacing it with health savings accounts. If you had that opportunity, wouldn't you welcome that?

CARSON: I will welcome working on that, and I will work on it one way or another.

HANNITY: You're not budging, are you?


HANNITY: Do you think you're being considered for vice president?

CARSON: You know, I don't want to get into that kind of speculation.

HANNITY: So you tell me to shut up. You can say Hannity, shut up. We're friends. You can whatever you want. Dr. Carson, always a pleasure. Thank you so much for being with us.

CARSON: Thank you.

HANNITY: And coming up, we need your help. A very important "Question of the Day" is straight ahead.


HANNITY: Welcome back to "Hannity." Time for our "Question of the Day." So who will Bernie Sanders supporters vote for in November? Hillary is not likable, she's not warm, she doesn't give a good speech, and if you're a Bernie supporter, you feel that election is stolen. Go to Facebook.com/SeanHannity, @SeanHannity on Twitter.

That is all the time we have left this evening. As always, thank you for being with us. Set your DVR so you never miss an episode. We'll see you back here tomorrow night.
