Giuliani on Trump's agenda, potential pardon for Clinton; Ben Carson 'happy to help' with replacement of ObamaCare

This is a rush transcript from "Hannity," November 10, 2016. This copy may not be in its final form and may be updated.

SEAN HANNITY, HOST: And welcome to “Hannity.” So after President-elect Donald Trump's decisive victory, he now has a mandate to act on behalf of you, the American people. Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani will be here in just a minute with reaction.

But first, my advice to Donald Trump tonight is move fast and keep all of your promises. Earlier today, President-elect Trump met at the White House with President Obama to discuss the transition of power.

I'm sure Obama extended an olive branch in a last ditch attempt to try and preserve whatever legacy he has. Now the president can play nice all he wants, but make no mistake about it, Democrats want Trump to fail.

They will do everything they could do to stop him. Remember, it was only a few days ago, they're playing all nice today, that Obama was saying this.


PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA: Donald Trump is temperamentally unfit to be commander-in-chief. We cannot elect a president who vilifies minorities, who mocks Americans with disabilities, who calls immigrants criminals and rapists.

If you accept the support of Klan sympathizers before your president, then you'll accept their support after you're president. Donald Trump is uniquely unqualified to hold the job.


HANNITY: Don't forget about how President Obama really feels about Republicans.


OBAMA: I need you to go out and talk to your friends and talk to your neighbors, talk to them whether they're independent or whether they are Republican, I want you to argue with them and get in their face.

I don't want the folks who created the mess, I don't want the folks who created the mess to do a lot of talking. I want them to get out of the way so we can clean up the mess.

Middle class families up in front. We can't -- we don't mind the Republicans joining us. They can come for the ride, but they got to sit in the back.


HANNITY: Got to sit in back. So inclusive when he won. Remember he often said I won. We won, said that a lot. Now keep all of that in mind. This isn't about coming together with Democrats. This is about completely dismantling his disastrous agenda.

That's going to mean this, repealing, replacing ObamaCare, replace it with free market solutions to lower premiums and give you the American people real choices about your future health care.

That also means building that border wall, stopping illegal immigration so that Americans won't be competing for jobs with illegal immigrants who are driving down wages.

That means he's got to follow up on appointing originalists to the Supreme Court, like Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas, justices who believe in coequal branches of government, separation of powers, who will follow the constitution the way the foundered intended it to be followed.

Now Trump as laid out and put out a very strong list of potential Supreme Court picks. He should stick to the list. It also means his agenda on energy independence, approving the Keystone Excel pipeline and lifting restrictions on drilling and fracking so we don't have to pretend to be friends with countries that hate our guts.

Not to mention that this will create millions of jobs for Americans that desperately need them. It also means draining the swamp, reducing the size of government, eliminating bureaucratic ways, fraud and abuse, and getting or exploding debt under control, stop robbing our kids blind.

It means lowering taxes, simplifying the tax code, he said seven brackets to three. It means identifying who America's enemies are and who they really are and not be afraid to use the term radical Islam.

Also it means extreme vetting of refugees so they won't put American lives at risk. It means, of course, no more common core in school, send education back to the states and it also means remembering the millions of forgotten Americans, the people who have been left behind or completely ignored for decades by career politicians, the media, and the global elites.

I call it the forgotten man election and it's time to make free trade deals, lower the corporate tax rate, allow companies to repatriate trillions of dollars from overseas so that we can build factories and manufacturing centers and create millions of jobs here.

Here with reaction now, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani. There's a lot of rumors about you these days --

RUDY GIULIANI, FORMER NEW YORK CITY MAYOR: Rumors are rumors. The agenda you've outlined he's absolutely going to do.

HANNITY: He's committed to.

GIULIANI: Yes. I spent 130 days on the road with him. Sometimes we were the only ones up at 1:00 in the morning because the kids would go to sleep.  I love that. Both me and I loved it because we were older than both of them.

The thing about Donald Trump that the American people will get to know, and I think he's going to become more and more popular is, he is exactly what he says he is. Sometimes that got him in trouble, as we know.

But everything he promised he believes in. It's not one of these, you know, I'm for the Keystone pipeline and then I'm against the Keystone pipeline. He's in favor of it. He's going to do it.

He is dead set on renegotiating those trade agreements. You didn't mention the Iran agreement. He considers the Iran agreement the dumbest, stupidest --

HANNITY: Did you see what the Iranians said? The Iranians said he has to keep it.

GIULIANI: No, he doesn't. The president never submitted it to congress as he should have under Article 2 Section 2 of the United States Constitution.  It's a treaty. I invite the people at home to go get out The Federalist papers and read Federalist paper 75 where Hamilton defines a treaty.  This is a treaty. When it's not a treaty, just signed by the president, the next president can repudiate it like that.

HANNITY: How many items off the top of your head on day one, you know, executive orders can he wipe out?

GIULIANI: I haven't counted them, I would say easily 50.

HANNITY: Right away including executive amnesty.

GIULIANI: Executive amnesty, all kinds of powers that were given to EPA, the Congress --


GIULIANI: Give to the EPA, which is how he revives the energy industry.  The energy industries is being crushed by the EPA and they're being crushed by things that Congress wouldn't pass that Obama signed into so-call law by executive order. Most of that will get struck down by the courts two or three years from now. A President Trump can just sign a paper and get rid of it.

HANNITY: Let's go back to September 8th, 1974, then President Gerald Ford, let me read, "I, Gerald Rord, president of the United States pursuant to the pardon power conferred upon me by Article 2 Section 2 of the U.S. Constitution have granted and by the present and grant full, free and absolute pardon unto Richard Nixon for all offenses against the United States which he, Richard Nixon has committed or may have taken part in during the period from January 20, '69 through August 9th, 1974."

Now a lot of people have said to me today, well, wait a minute, Hillary has not been charged.

GIULIANI: That doesn't matter.

HANNITY: If you become the attorney general, Donald Trump has been very clear that we can't have a two-tier justice system and that these issues about the e-mail server and the foundation will be pursued.

GIULIANI: Yes. Also the foundation investigation is still going on.

HANNITY: Do you think Obama will pardon her? Does he have the ability to?

GIULIANI: He does.

HANNITY: Is it absolute?

GIULIANI: In my view and my reading of the constitution, which don't take it as gospel, but I know it fairly well, I believe the president's pardon power is absolute. We're constitutionalists so we would like for it not to be, but it is. Theoretically, he could pardon her for basically anything - -

HANNITY: She has done.

GIULIANI: That has already happened. He can't pardon her obviously for something she does in the future, but anything she has already done.

HANNITY: Amazing. If you were the attorney general --

GIULIANI: What about Abedin, Cooper, Mills, Pagliano, the guys who took the Fifth and apparently committed perjury. Wikileaks, you've got the proof of the perjury. There's a whole group of them out there that the Justice Department, an honest Justice Department would be pursuing. And I can tell you that the FBI is pursuing it.

BAIER: There will be some Republicans that say you've got to focus on the agenda, this will be a distraction, let Clinton go.

GIULIANI: There's an argument to be made for that, but there's also an argument to be made for equal justice under the law, which is how do you not prosecute some of these and then go ahead and prosecute Martha Steward for one count of lying to the FBI?

HANNITY: Or this guy in the jail now --

GIULIANI: How do you prosecute the guy in jail for taking pictures of that submarine?

HANNITY: Six pictures.

GIULIANI: He sent them to his mom, right?

HANNITY: No. He just had them in his phone. He took them for himself in a submarine and phones were allowed to be in the submarine and he's spending a year in jail right now.

GIULIANI: So how do you prosecute him and then you don't prosecute this case assuming it turns out to be as substantial as some of the FBI agents believed it is.

Remember, the investigation -- and Comey was very careful. He came to the conclusion on the e-mails that she shouldn't be prosecuted. First of all, that's not his decision to make. It's the Justice Department's decision to make. It was not really a definitive decision.

Secondly, the Clinton Foundation investigation is an ongoing investigation as far as I can tell being carried out by the New York Office of the FBI.  That's going to sit on the desk of the next attorney general.

HANNITY: You were on the road as you said 130-plus days with Donald Trump during this campaign, been one of his closest friends and advisers. You went out and campaigned hard for him. Obviously, he will want you in his cabinet. Is there any particular position you want? Would you like --

GIULIANI: That's a discussion that Donald and I --

HANNITY: So Hannity is not allowed in that discussion?

GIULIANI: No. You're not allowed in that discussion. That is a very private discussion and there's a whole transition team and a whole process you have to go through and vetting and everything.

HANNITY: Is there any one position you'd prefer?

GIULIANI: Right now I'm pretty happy where I am. It would have to be something where I believe that only I could do that job.

HANNITY: If I'm Hillary Clinton and Rudy Giuliani becomes the AG, I'm serious, I'd be scared to death because I do believe Donald Trump. He said he would pursue it. And if you're the attorney general and I'm Hillary Clinton, I would be scared to death because I know how good a prosecutor you were. I was here when you were mayor. I remember the old press conferences.

GIULIANI: Honestly, I was a better prosecutor than mayor.

HANNITY: You were a pretty good mayor.

GIULIANI: The mafia.

HANNITY: Yes, you went after the mob?

GIULIANI: (Inaudible), a number of --

HANNITY: You became friends with Milken, right?

GIULIANI: Milken and I are good friends now and I believe Milken is an excellent candidate for a pardon.

HANNITY: Wow. All right, Mr. Mayor --

GIULIANI: And that's based on the good works that he's done after his conviction. This is a case of a guy who learned his lesson and has really helped society.

HANNITY: All right. Thanks. He was the junk bonds guy. He does a lot of charity.

GIULIANI: And I know a few others like that. You and I are Catholics and we know that people can redeem themselves.

HANNITY: Absolutely.

GIULIANI: Some people can't.


GIULIANI: Some people can and you got to know how to distinguish between.

HANNITY: All right, Mr. Mayor, good to see you, thank you.

Up next tonight right here on “Hannity” --


PRESIDENT-ELECT DONALD TRUMP: Real change begins with immediately repealing and replacing the disaster known as ObamaCare.


HANNITY: ObamaCare, a big fat government lie to you the American people.  Donald Trump told you he will repeal it. He'll replace it. How does he plan to do that? We'll check in with Dr. Ben Carson.

And also later tonight, President-elect Trump, he promised to drain the swamp. Tonight, we speak with Laura Ingraham, Reince Priebus, and much more.


JACKIE IBANEZ, FOX NEWS REPORTER: This is a Fox News alert. Another night of protests against President-elect Donald Trump underway in dozens of cities around the country. This is New York City. Hundreds of protesters are here gathered outside Trump Tower on Fifth Avenue.

The crowd holding up signs saying, quote, "not my president" and "divided states of America." Large crowds also taking to the streets in several cities on the west coast. In Portland, Oregon there's been some violence as they're taking over the highways.

And President-elect Trump lashing out at the demonstration via Twitter saying, quote, "Just had a very open and successful presidential election.  Now professional protesters incited by the media are protesting. Very unfair."

The supporters also taking to social media calling the demonstrators, quote, "hypocrites" for not accepting the democratic process. I'm Jackie Ibanez. Now back to "Hannity." For all of your headlines, log on to FoxNews.com.


TRUMP: Real change begins with the immediately repealing and replacing the disaster known as ObamaCare. With ObamaCare premiums are surging, companies are leaving, insurers are fleeing, doctors are quitting and deductibles are going right through the roof. We can repeal and replace ObamaCare and save health care for every family in Michigan and throughout the United States of America. We have to do it.


HANNITY: All right. That is now President-elect Donald Trump on the campaign trail earlier this week promising to repeal and replace ObamaCare.  This is an issue weighing on the minds of many of the American people.

After it was announced that ObamaCare premiums will once again skyrocket this coming year. Many people will be seeing double digit increases. How will the president-elect when he becomes president repeal and replace it?

Joining us now, former 2016 presidential candidate, Dr. Benjamin Carson.  Dr. Carson, I read that you have been asked to be a part of this effort to repeal it and replace it. True?

DR. BEN CARSON, FORMER 2016 PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE: Of course. And of course, I would be extraordinarily happy to help with this. Health care is by far the most important thing that a person has. And you know, this announcement of this big increase, this is just the first trunch.

There's going to be several more. It's going to be completely unaffordable. It doesn't work. I think the people who put it together knew that it wouldn't work and that it would prime the people for acceptance of government controlled single pair systems. Fortunately, we've stopped that.

HANNITY: All right, we're going to repeal it. How do you transition people back to it? How do you create free market health savings accounts with competition, with portability that allows for pre-existing conditions?  This is not an easy task, undoing this damage is going to be hard. Are you worried about transitional cost for people?

CARSON: It's not an easy task but, you know, we have models for how to do it. How to create health savings accounts using the same monies that we used to buy, you know, exhorbantly, expensive health insurance.

So that's a matter of putting the pieces together. Once that is done, you know, all you need then is your catastrophic health care which is going to be much, much cheaper. You know, the models are multiple. They will be worked out.

It will be very easy for people to understand and 80 percent of your encounters with the health care system are going to be between you and the system. Not some third party individual.

HANNITY: You know, one of the interesting things, I know this doctor in Wichita, Kansas, he actually set up his own cooperative and he buys medicines in bulk. He is available, him and his team, 24/7 for everybody in the cooperative. They all save money. They all get better care. They all get cheaper medicines.

CARSON: Of course.

HANNITY: You know, do you think you would be able to institutionalize that all around the country or something similar?

CARSON: Well, similar things because, of course, if the relationship is between the patient and the health care provider, you're going to bring the whole medical system into the free market and free market forces will control costs and quality. It will be much better in both of those instances.

HANNITY: Yes. All right. Will you take a position as health and human services secretary, surgeon general, would you take those positions if asked and have you been asked to take a position?

CARSON: We're discussing these things. You know, I personally feel that you can do a lot from outside. But if that were the only way that it could be done, you know, obviously I'm going to do what needs to be done to assist this administration.

HANNITY: So you have discussed it? You can say it. It's OK. You can share it with me.

CARSON: Yes, there have been discussions.

HANNITY: I happen to think it's a good choice, myself. You don't have to sell me on you, Dr. Carson. I'm a fan. This is going to be a difficult transition, but one that's necessary before this thing totally blows up, which it's kind of imploding now of its own weight. Dr. Carson, thanks --

CARSON: It's not going to be so difficult because it's going to be logical.

HANNITY: That's true. By the way, that's refreshing for Washington. Good to see you. Thank you, Dr. Carson.

Coming up next tonight right here on “Hannity.”


TRUMP: I very much look forward to dealing with the president in the future, including counsel.


HANNITY: President-elect Donald Trump met with President Obama at the White House today. Laura Ingraham, she weighs in next.

Plus the mainstream media and liberals generally are freaking out over President-elect Trump. Sheriff David Clark and Judge Jeanine Pirro will join in and weigh in later on in the program.



TRUMP: I very much look forward to dealing with the president in the future, including counsel. He explained some of the difficulties, some of the high flying assets and some of the really great things that have been achieved. So, Mr. President, it was a great honor being with you and I look forward to being with you many, many more times in the future. Thank you.


HANNITY: President-elect Donald Trump met with President Obama at the White House earlier today. Now Mr. Trump promised voters that he would drain the swamp. How is he going to do that?

Joining us now with reaction, editor-in-chief of LifeZette, Fox News contributor, nationally syndicated radio host, she put it all on the line this election. There's a group of people ready to go after her and yours truly.

To me I think it's simple for Mr. Trump but difficult on the other hand. I think he just follows through on his promises, follows up on his agenda, his contract, drain the swamp is one of them. He laid out that speech in Gettysburg. Will that be hard with the Republican Congress?

LAURA INGRAHAM, EDITOR-IN-CHIEF, LIFEZETTE: I don't think so. I've talked to two or three people in leadership in the House and the Senate, and there's a palpable difference in tone and attitude. Everyone now is really excited about Trump being president, even those who were not all that thrilled, to say the least. So he's completely overnight changed the way the Republicans --

HANNITY: Isn't that amazing? Isn't that nice of them to come on board? I guess everybody likes a winner, right?

INGRAHAM: They do, Sean. It was frustrating, I think, just to back up a moment about this race because I think you were saying this, I was saying this. Just support the ticket and then you can debate about the nuances of policy if he wins.

If he doesn't win all of these things we're wanting to do is never going to happen. Support the nominee through good and bad. Don't abandon him when he's at his most difficult spot, which a lot of them did.

And now a lot of them are crawling back saying, I'm thrilled about this.  I'm going to work hard for you. It's better later than never, but I think we have to be careful as he said --

HANNITY: The last ones on the ship will be the first ones off of the ship as soon as they hit any bumpy waters.

INGRAHAM: Right. I think that's really important for Trump to remember.  He laid out some issues, you addressed them already on ObamaCare, immigration, both the wall and reduction really in illegal immigration, the type of immigration policy we've seen over last couple of decades.

Since the 1960s we changed our immigration policy and most people aren't in favor of that. They want immigration to be controlled and work to the benefit of the American people. And that's a big undertaking. ObamaCare, immigration, tax reform, these are, these are things that are non- negotiable. He has to do these now.

HANNITY: I think originalists, extreme vetting, I think building the wall, eliminating ObamaCare, health savings accounts, three tax brackets instead of seven, lowering the corporate tax rate, energy independence and education back to the states. If he does that, he will change this country in deep and profound ways even though it sounds easy.

INGRAHAM: I think you're right. It will grow the economy, you throw in trade and limiting the foreign workers who are come into the country until wages start going up, all of those things will benefit the economy.

And as a side benefit but nevertheless very important for the Republicans is that it will build the Republican Party out into a populous pragmatic party.

When Trump can go into the inner city and say see, I did the things I said I was going to do and look at how people's lives are getting better, join us, continue to grow the movement that he started. That's when it gets really interesting.

HANNITY: You know, how multinational corporations have trillions parked overseas and he'll also institute the lowest tax rate in the industrialized world. He can give them a further incentive.

OK, if you take these old factories in Detroit, if you rebuild in Wisconsin or Ohio or Pennsylvania, in other words, those areas that have been devastated, I think it would transform the country and get people back to work and out of poverty and off of food stamps, it would do wonders for the economy, wonders for the people of this country.

INGRAHAM: Think about the family dynamics that will also be improved.  There are so many breadwinners who are not in the workforce and they want to work, they want to maybe have less than -- fewer than three jobs. They would like to have one job that pays a decent salary.

Families' lives improve. It has ripple effect that will be much better for the country if we have a growing strong economy. And the thing you have to smile about is that China is worried. If China was happy about who got to the presidency, that's a bad sign.

HANNITY: The Iranians are too. You better keep that deal. I don't think that deal is worth the paper it's printed on. I'm hoping. All right, Laura, you've been great. Thank you.

Coming up, liberal celebrities, mainstream media, they're losing their minds collectively. Why? Because you elected Donald Trump. Sheriff David Clark, Judge Jeanine Pirro, and wait until see, by the way, Miley Cyrus's crying meltdown, and then RNC Chairman Reince Priebus, and much more straight ahead.


IBANEZ: Live from America's news headquarters, I'm Jackie Ibanez.

For the second night in a row thousands of people opposed to the election of Donald Trump are taking it to the streets. Here's what it looks like this evening along New York's Fifth Avenue just outside Trump Tower.  Similar scenes happening right now if more than a dozen other cities nationwide. Demonstrators, most of them young, are disrupting traffic as they march down the street carrying protest signs and chanting "Not my president." Some are waving Mexican flags as a reference to Mr. Trump's immigration policies.

Police in riot gear are standing by, but so far there are no reports of serious violence. Trump supporters, meantime, have taken to social media to scorn the demonstrations. They accuse the protesters for being hypocrites for not accepting Tuesday's election results.

I'm Jackie Ibanez. Now back to “Hannity.” For all of your headlines, logon to FoxNews.com.

HANNITY: And welcome back to “Hannity.” So on election night as vote totals were rolling in showing a very good night for president-elect Trump, the leftwing mainstream media, they were having a meltdown. Take a look at some of the worst moments -- I guess some of the best from an entertainment point of view, of the night.


UNIDENTIFIED MALE: America is crying tonight. I'm not sure how much of America, but a very significant portion, and I mean literally crying. And it is a moment filled with fear.


UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Filled with fear.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Some of this cultural anger we should correctly identify as being racial animus. And it's significant that Trump has closed so much of a gap and done so well with white voters. The extent to which Donald Trump has won running a campaign of racism and bigotry, turning out millions of white Americans for that campaign, suggests that we are living through a kind of second redemption.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Our country is about to face some serious crises.  And so buckle up. Your country needs you.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Your son is serving as a marine. You wouldn't trust his life under that commander in chief and he said I wouldn't. That's a pretty extraordinary thing to say if you have a son in the Marine Corps and you don't trust the commander in chief, the people in the military who defend the constitution.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: This is a white-lash, this was a white-lash against a changing country. It was a white-lash against a black president in part.  And that's the part where the pain comes.


HANNITY: White-lash? Mainstream media, they weren't the only group lashing out. Last night whiny, sore loser progressives took to the streets often blocking traffic in several of America's busiest cities in order to vent their frustrations.

Joining us now with reaction, Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke, the host of "Justice" Judge Jeanine Pirro. Sheriff, this is fairly predictable. Any time conservatives win, Republicans win, the left goes into complete meltdown mode. The things we will hear in the next four years, I'm warning my audience, it shouldn't shock you. They are going to lose collectively their minds. That's my prediction. How should we deal with it?

SHERIFF DAVID CLARKE, MILWAUKEE COUNTY: First of all, I just thoroughly enjoyed that montage you showed of the left where you played the left in meltdown mode. It's fun to watch.

Look, this is a great day in America. I remember back in 2007 when Barack Obama won his first election showed up in Grant Park in Chicago south side and they showed a picture of Jesse Jackson with a tear rolling down his cheek. That was me the other night as Donald Trump took the stage.

And Fox News I believe was the first to announce that Donald Trump was the president-elect of the United States. And today I still have to pinch myself. I said it several times on your show, Sean, I said that Donald Trump would win. But to be in that moment now post-election, I mean, I don't smile much but I'm smiling from ear to ear today.

HANNITY: I've seen you smile, sheriff. I've been at events with you where you're smiling. Judge, your reaction?

JUDGE JEANINE PIRRO, HOST, “JUSTICE WITH JUDGE JEANINE”: My reaction to the media is not surprise at all. Look, what we've got is a bunch of wusses, all right, who tried to convince America that we are a racist country, that Donald Trump is all of this isms and ists, and I'm not even going to go through it because I think it's defamatory. But they are the people who are the racists and the anarchists and who support these wimps, who especially on college campuses and these people who are protesting, they are anarchists.  They don't believe in America. They want to burn flags. They want to not work. They want to get a check. They want illegals, they want open borders.

You know what, it's time people recognize that we have a country that works for a living, that works hard to make sure that we can afford food and rent for our families, and that we deserve a president who believes that's it all about us Americans, and not a global, you know, country and a global economy. And by the way, you know, when they hang Donald Trump in effigy and they say love Trumps hate, they're the hypocrites, they're the people who are violating the law.

HANNITY: Sheriff, let me give you some examples. Slate has a piece, "White Won," Van Jones, "This was a white-lash," Cokie Roberts, "there's great hostility to having a female president." "People have to die," some of these anti-Trump protesters were saying. By the way, if any of these celebrities want to leave, I'll help them get out.

You know, how to impeach a president, Google shows a 500 percent increase.  Some in California want to leave the union, for crying out loud. Some social media comments, "Trump should be assassinated." And this is only the beginning of it. You saw a video of the guy who was beaten over this whole thing. And you've got schools telling kids if you're so traumatized we'll offer you counseling to deal with your grief and shock over Donald Trump's victory. I don't know whether to laugh or cry.

CLARKE: Well, a little of both. This is nothing more than an attempt to intimidate the Trump administration and intimidate the Trump supporters.  This is a slap in the face of the voters. In our democracy the voters decide who will lead these institutions of government, and numbers came out enough to make Donald Trump the president-elect of the United States. It's going to take them time, but they'll get over it. But in the meantime you put up with them like a petulant two-year-old, you let them dance and have their tantrum, and then at some point you take them by the arm and you look them in the eye and you go, that's enough.

HANNITY: Grow up. I think my favorite, though, is Miley Cyrus posting this.


MILEY CYRUS, SINGER: I do want to say that I have been very vocal for my support for everyone besides Donald Trump. Heavily supported Bernie, heavily supported Hillary. And I still think that in her lifetime she deserves to be the first female president. And that's what makes me so sad, that I just wish she had an opportunity because she's fought for so long.


PIRRO: I want to know what she's fought for. And every time I hit the streets I say to people, what has she done other than as senator? She's got a post office named and a road named. And you know, Miley Cyrus, this is a lesson for you and all of your Hollywood elite friends, that you don't have any power or any control, we don't give a damn what you think or what you say. And you know what, get over yourself. You sing well, keep on singing. And that's enough about politics.

HANNITY: I think we'll leave it there.

CLARKE: Drama queen.

HANNITY: Drama queen.


HANNITY: I wasn't exactly happy in '08 and 2012.

PIRRO: We didn't protest.

HANNITY: I didn't protest, I didn't cry, didn't act like a baby. Good grief, grow up, you people. If you need counseling over a presidential election, you're a mess to begin with.

PIRRO: Dog therapy, they're bring in dogs to the campuses.


HANNITY: Little safe spaces, free counseling sessions, group therapy, hug it out.

PIRRO: What a bunch of wusses.

HANNITY: Coming up, president-elect Donald Trump had a busy morning in D.C. after meeting with the president at the White House. Mr. Trump and the vice president elect Mike Pence, they met with Speaker Ryan on Capitol Hill. So how can the party come together and fix this economy which is a mess? We'll check in with RNC Chairman Reince Priebus straight ahead.



UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: What's the top three?

TRUMP: We have a lot. We're going to first look at the border, we're going to look at health care, and we're looking at jobs, big league jobs.


HANNITY: That was president-elect Donald Trump earlier today on Capitol Hill detailing his administration's priorities.

Now Mr. Trump along with vice president elect Mike Pence met with Speaker of the House Paul Ryan during their visit to Washington today. The voters have spoken and exit polls show that 69 percent of voters said that they were dissatisfied or angry with how the federal government was working. So what are they going to do to fix it? Here now, RNC Chairman Reince Priebus is with us. Good to see you. By the way, congratulations.


HANNITY: A lot of people had doubts about a system that you had built since 2012 to get more voters to the polls. Do you feel that it was as successful as you had hoped?

PRIEBUS: Well, the result was pretty good. Let me just first say before I talk about that, you have to start with a great candidate. And if you don't have the change candidate that's authentic and genuine in a change year, you can have all the data age turnout you want, it's not going to work. So it's starts with Donald Trump, president-elect Trump, number one.

But number two, you know, we've been working for four years. We added -- I was just looking before this interview. We added 300,000 more Republicans on the voter rolls through party registration in Florida. We also predicted turnout.

Try to keep it basic. The most difficult thing you can do mechanically, the data and people on the ground are important. But you have to figure out what your prediction is for turnout so that you can actually try to figure out how many votes you need in the box in order to win. That's where our operation was dead on accurate. So predicting how many voters you need.

For example, in Ohio we thought we would need 2.745 million voters in Ohio.  We received 2.771 million votes in Ohio. And I can go through state after state like that. But having margins down perfectly is where it begins, and then the process of either adding voters to the rolls, and/or targeting or both is where the targeting and adding people in and then putting those people in the box is the process that we go through, and it's a four-year program. So it's not just showing up three months before an election and saying let's just start knocking on doors. It's a targeting program that started four years ago and culminated with a great candidate who really shocked the world.

HANNITY: What do you make of the 69 percent of voters say they're dissatisfied? But also go back to the Republican primaries, and 64 percent of Republicans felt betrayed by the Republican Party. Donald Trump was the outsider, was the change agent. And now he's got to work with many of those same Republicans. Do you foresee any problems, any conflict?

PRIEBUS: I don't see a lot of problems because I've gotten to know president-elect Trump well. I know how he interacts with people in private. I know how gracious and personable he is. Look at what happened today. You don't get to where Donald Trump is, president-elect Trump, I have got to get used to that, you do not get there by being a person who doesn't understand the audience, the situation he's in, and acting in a way that affects the best outcome for his agenda. That is what he's going to do.

Let me just say tangentially to that, the voters spoke. And they elected Republicans in the White House, the Senate, the House. And they did it with great fervor. And so the agenda of the party and particularly the agenda of president-elect Trump is going to be the agenda that we pursue because that is what voters wanted. They're not going to water down the agenda.

HANNITY: Is that going to be the Trump agenda?

PRIEBUS: It's going to be the Trump agenda. He has the mandate. And so I want people to understand this isn't a matter of watering down our promises and forgetting about the will of the American people. The American people deserve the agenda of the Republican party because that is what they asked for.

HANNITY: Let me ask you this. Have you spoken to Donald Trump Trump, or, you're right, president-elect Trump, have you spoken to with him about a position in his cabinet? It's been rumored you're being considered for chief of staff. Is that something you'd be interested in? I know you've gotten close to him over these many months. Would you want do that?

PRIEBUS: That is not something I'm talking about. I think it's something that a lot of newspapers speculate about. I'm happy doing what I'm doing.

HANNITY: Has he asked you if you would come on board?

PRIEBUS: Um, I don't think he's doing a lot of that kind of talking.

HANNITY: Why are you hedging? He did ask you. I'm sure he asked you.

PRIEBUS: No. Listen, the job is to make sure we have a successful transition, that the teams get in place as quickly as possible. The inauguration is something that gets planned right now, and it's just not something people are talking about.

HANNITY: All right, Reince Priebus, you deserve a big congratulations.  And I know you did get close with Mr. Trump in the course of this process.  And it's going to be very interesting in the next, certainly the first 100, 180 days he's in office. Thanks for joining us.

PRIEBUS: That's right.

HANNITY: And coming up, a very important "Question of the Day." And we need your help. That is next.


HANNITY: All right, time for our "Question of the Day." So what is the first thing you think president-elect Donald Trump should do as president?  Go to Facebook.com/SeanHannity, @SeanHannity on Twitter, let us know what you think. My answer is simple. Get rid of all of the executive orders hurting business and economic activity in the country. Maybe get rid of that Iranian deal. And then I'd start on just fulfilling every promise.  Anyway, that's my humble advice.

Thanks for being with us. That's all the time we have left. We'll see you back here tomorrow night.
