Kellyanne Conway on Trump's transition and 100-day plan

This is a rush transcript from "Hannity," November 11, 2016. This copy may not be in its final form and may be updated.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

SEAN HANNITY, FOX NEWS ANCHOR (voice-over):  Tonight, anti-Democratic left wing agitators and Hollywood liberals are absolutely losing their minds because Donald Trump has been elected our next president.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE:  In her lifetime she deserves to be the first female president.

HANNITY:  Will this lunacy ever end?  Larry Elder and the Reverend Darryl Scott are here tonight with reaction.

DONALD TRUMP, U.S. PRESIDENT-ELECT:  We need great people negotiating our deals for us.

HANNITY:  Then President-elect Trump moves ahead with his transition plans. So what will the Trump administration look like?  Kellyanne Conway is here to react.

TRUMP:  Real change begins with immediately repealing and replacing the disaster known as Obamacare.

HANNITY:  And Donald Trump promised to repeal and replace Obamacare.  So how quickly will he be able to do that?  All of that plus Kimberly Guilfoyle. "Hannity" starts right here right now.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

HANNITY:  Welcome to "Hannity." And tonight anti-Democratic liberals are completely losing their minds over President-elect Donald Trump.  Left wing agitators have been taking to the streets to try to undermine Mr. Trump's decisive victory and Democrats are doing nothing to discourage or stop them.

Now President-elect Trump is talking about bringing the country together after a very long and hard-fought campaign.  The left, they are starting violent protest.  They are spewing hateful rhetoric and even attacking Donald Trump supporters.
      
According to the Chicago Tribune, a day after the election, in the windy city, a man involved in a traffic incident was then viciously beaten because an angry mob just assumed that he was a Trump supporter.  We got to warn you this video is very disturbing.  Take a look.

(VIDEO CLIP)

HANNITY:  Beyond disgusting.  The left apparently doesn't think it is worth condemning.  Now "The Chicago Tribune" is also reporting that the man did, in fact, vote for Trump, but there was no way the attackers would have known that because he never told them.  Again, they apparently just assumed he was a Trump supporter.

And last night in Portland, Oregon, dozens were arrested after police say left wing agitators started a riot by attacking drivers and smashing cars and destroying businesses.  So, where are the Democrats?  Where are the leaders?  Where is Hillary? Where's Obama on this?
      
Why aren't they speaking out against this unpatriotic behavior?  Now Democrats love to claim they are all loving, the all-inclusive party.  I guess that only applies when their side wins the White House.
      
And what happened to the Democrats' campaign theme you know, when they go low, we go high?  Remember, it wasn't too long ago they were saying this.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

MICHELLE OBAMA, U.S. FIRST LADY:  When someone is cruel or acts like a bully, you don't stoop to their level, no, our motto is when they go low, we go high.

HILLARY CLINTON, D-FORMER 2016 PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE:  So we're going to take to heart the words of our wonderful first lady, Michelle Obama, when they go low, we go high.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

HANNITY:  Meanwhile, they all took the low road during the campaign.  Let me point out that these are the same people who nearly lost it when Donald Trump said at the third debate he would wait until after the election actually happened to accept the results.

Well, they expected Trump to accept the election results so why won't they?  There is also the massive hysterical and quite frankly predictable freak out from Hollywood liberals.  Take a look at poor, Miley Cyrus, and how she reacted to Donald Trump's big win, it's very sad.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

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

(END VIDEO CLIP)

HANNITY:  Wow.  What do you say to that?  Now, she is not alone, Miley Cyrus.  Cher has called Donald Trump pretty much every name in the book and said if he won she would leave the planet.

Then there is also Madonna.  She was reportedly spotted at a protest in New York City where agitators were chanting he is not my president.  All seriousness Hollywood liberals Donald Trump won fair and square and your life by the way is not going to change one bit.
      
Your rich, fancy lifestyle, your Learjet lifestyle, your big limousines, your fancy dinners, it's not going to end.  The world is not going to end.  You are still going to make millions of dollars on crappy movies and do every single thing you normally do.
      
So enough of the little baby temper tantrums that are going on here. What is going to change is the life hopefully of millions of forgotten Americans, the forgotten man election I call it, who have seen their jobs disappear, who haven't had a raise in years with the lowest home ownership rate in 51 years.
      
The lowest labor participation rate, believe it or not, since the 1970s, 95 million Americans out of work.  You know what?  Two to three jobs people are taking to support their families.  They are not living your lifestyle.
      
Healthcare premiums have skyrocketed for the average American. People completely ignored by the political elites in Washington and all Barack Obama did was make it worse.  Donald Trump ran for president to help them, to make their lives better.  And when he puts his policies in to place, hopefully all Americans will benefit.
      
Here with reaction, nationally syndicated talk show host, Larry Elder, and my friend, the man, Reverend Darryl Scott, who served as the CEO for the National Diversity Coalition for Trump.  All right, Pastor, maybe you need, you know, prayer, fasting, you know, what do you make of this freak out that's going on?

REVEREND DARRELL SCOTT, NATIONAL DIVERSITY COALITION FOR TRUMP:  Listen, the hypocrisy of the left is on full display for all Americans to see.  If you think about it, all of the violence, all of the deceit, the treasury, the under handedness, the dirty tricks.  Their dirty tricks put Nixon to shame.  It's all come from the left.

Cher, I think maybe we can put our money together and get Cher on one of those trips to the moon from one of those private companies, send her to the moon.  Miley, she needs to go somewhere and be with a wrecking ball or whatever.
      
I think the protests -- protesters are protesting against the wrong person.  They need to protest against the Democratic Party and the Hillary Clinton campaign on how they colluded together and stole the election, the nomination from Bernie Sanders.
      
Bernie Sanders might have stood a better chance against Donald Trump than Hillary did, but they conspired against him.  Stole the election, put their candidate up.  She got destroyed by Trump and now they're upset.
      
And it's nothing they can do but whine and tear up something.  We see where all the violence is from.  We see where all of this is coming from.  They can't hide it anymore.  They can't blame Trump.  Trump ran a clean campaign.  They can't blame Trump for this one.

HANNITY:  You know, one of the things I think got underreported, Larry, his no new deal for African-Americans.  If he goes into cities like Chicago and he takes on the violence, he changes the educational system.

He creates, -- if he is able to incentivize corporations to bring back trillions and corporations lowering their tax rates, bringing them back to America, hopefully, they will set up shop in Detroit, in Wisconsin, near where Pastor Scott lives and in Pennsylvania.  This could be real, real opportunity to transform things in a very positive way.

LARRY ELDER, SALEM RADIO NATIONALLY SYNDICATED HOST:  Absolutely.  If I were one of these anti-Trump protesters, Sean, I think I would have to ask myself a few questions.  How is it that Donald Trump managed to double the percentage of the black vote compared to John McCain and Mitt Romney?

How is it that he got a higher percentage of the Hispanic vote than did Mitt Romney?  If he is anti-gay, how is it that before he became president he was severely criticizing the Clinton contribution -- Clinton Foundation contributions that they got from countries like Saudi Arabia where homosexuality is a crime if not punishable by death?
      
If is he anti-Semitic, how is it that he's embraced Ivanka's husband who is Jewish.  She converted to Judaism.  He's got another son who is married to a Jew.  He's got a lot of executives who are Jewish in his organization.
      
When he gave his acceptance speech, Sean, one of the first things he said is I'm going to address the plight of the inner city.  How is it that this man is considered to be such a bigot?  If that's bigotry, he needs to go back to racism school.

HANNITY:  Yes.  Reverend, what's your word to people that maybe didn't support Donald Trump?  I don't think there is any one economic measure can you look at that says oh, things have gotten better in the last eight years.  What is your message to people that may be in that freak-out mode because maybe they believe the lies and propaganda of a very biased media?

SCOTT:  They need to relax, take a deep breath and chill out and get ready for quite possibly the best eight years America has enjoyed in a very long time.  I really believe Donald Trump is going to usher in a golden age here in America of peace and prosperity.

I'm not making him out to be a messianic figure.  I'm simply saying that if his policies are enacted, he is going to revitalize the inner city. He is going to stimulate economic growth.  Our borders will be secure.
      
There will be -- the spirit of fear, this attitude of fear that the Democratic Party has imposed upon America, he is going to sooth those fears, so to speak.  We will look up and be glad this man has become president.
      
When he says you have nothing to lose, what he was simply saying was give me a chance.  If we give Donald Trump a chance, we will be glad about the decision that we made.  I can tell you that much.

HANNITY:  All right, Larry, last word.

ELDER:  Well, Sean, if Obama had done nothing, we would have a 3 percent GDP.  We've had a 2 percent and the difference between 2 percent and 3 percent is 1 million jobs times the number of the years of the recovery. All Trump has to do is reverse many of the stuff that Obama has done such as Obamacare.

Such as these ridiculous regulations he has put on the backs of the American people, allow choice in inner city schools and this economy will boom.  Lower the corporate tax rate, this economy is going to take off.

HANNITY:  All right.  Guys, I think you both were very strong supporters for Donald Trump.

ELDER:  We were.

HANNITY:  And I think you helped him a lot in this election.  Thank you, both.

Coming up, today President-elect Donald Trump announced that Vice President-elect Mike Pence will now be serving as the chairman of his busy transition team.  Mr. Trump's senior advisor, Kellyanne Conway, joins us next in studio.
      
And also later tonight --

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

TRUMP:  If we don't get rid of Obamacare, it will destroy healthcare in North Carolina and all over the United States.  We will build a great wall and, yes, Mexico will pay for the wall.  They're going to pay for the wall.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

HANNITY:  President-elect Donald Trump promised the American people he would build that wall, repeal Obamacare.  The Wall Street Journal is reporting tonight that Mr. Trump may be willing to keep two parts of it. What are they?  Is it smart?  We'll explain later tonight.

(COMMERCIAL BREAK)

JACKIE IBANEZ, FOX NEWS:  Good evening and live from America's News Headquarters.  I'm Jackie Ibanez.  More arrests today at an oil pipeline construction site in North Dakota.  Police say they arrested about three dozen protesters.  The confrontation also closing down a state highway.  An Indian tribe and other opponents say the proposed pipeline threatens drinking water in tribal cultural sites.

Dozens of residents are forced from their homes in four southern states because of wildfires.  Fires are burning in Georgia, Tennessee, North Carolina, and Alabama where the governor is offering $5,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of a suspected arsonist.
      
A competency ruling is expected Monday at the murder trial of Dylann Roof.  He is the white man charged with the shooting deaths of nine black people in a church in Charleston, South Carolina last year.  The judge says it is possible Roof may not be mentally competent to stand trial.
      
I'm Jackie Ibanez.  Now back to "Hannity." For all your headlines log on to FoxNews.com.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

TRUMP:  We have the greatest negotiators in the world.  We have the greatest business people in the world.  We're going to use these great business people, Karl Icahn endorsed me and some others.  We are going to use our great leaders and our great business people.  It's time.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

HANNITY:  President-elect Donald Trump on the campaign trail promising he will surround himself with great people when he enters the White House. And earlier today, Mr. Trump announced that Vice President-elect Mike Pence will now serve as chairman of the presidential transition team and his family will also be a part of it.

Joining us now with reaction is the president-elect's senior advisor, Kellyanne Conway.  Listen, a lot of people have been calling me today about transition.  This transition that, why don't you just tell us, we will ask you that straight up, what's going on?

KELLYANNE CONWAY, TRUMP SENIOR ADVISOR:  We're trying to form a federal government and it's up to President-elect Trump to choose those advisors he wants around him on his senior team, key positions, cabinet, it's a very big task.

But it's one that's been worked on for many months away from the campaign, Sean, by the transition team that was originally headed up by Governor Christie who still serves as vice chair.
      
It makes perfect sense to have Vice President-elect Mike Pence with this role because, first of all, most of the transition will go on in D.C. Some of it here in New York, but also because Mike Pence will be the vice president.
      
So, he has got a lot of familiar faces, a lot of familiar names on that list.  Those of us who have been here.  Those who have been trusted advisors and elected officials for Governor Pence and Mr. Trump.  We're just excited to see how Mr. Trump forms his government and his team.

HANNITY:  I guess the fear that I heard from some people was that, will Donald Trump put people maybe that weren't as loyal to him during the campaign and surround himself -- I would argue the cut and run people.  You know, they are only there -- they are there now but they weren't there during the tough moments in the campaign.  Is that a possibility or that won't happen?

CONWAY:  Well, we all know that Donald Trump values loyalty.  It's very important to him.  He is loyal to people in return.  In addition, you want to find people that are qualified and effective to do the job.  I think those are probably the two major criteria for him.

I will tell you that there are very talented men and women who were a part of his campaign and who were frankly part of his outside advisors or folks who supported him who did so vocally or visibly.  We are hearing from many of them.  There is a process in place.
      
We have an executive director who is working tirelessly to process some of these credentials and see where we are.  But, I think the most exciting thing that happened this week is people have spoken.  They had an election that's for them, Sean.
      
I have been in polling for decades.  You have been doing this for decades.  People finally got their wish, they got the outside and non- politician.  Somebody who is going to go to Washington as our president, who owes no one anything.  That is truly an election for the people, of the people, and by the people.

HANNITY:  You know, there is always what we call a honeymoon period.  I suspect that Mr. Trump's case it may not be as long as he probably hopes for.  To me, his job is probably simple and it's probably something he is used to.

In other words, he made very strong commitments about Supreme Court justices, about refugees, about the wall, about Obamacare, about energy, about education, about our vets, about national defense and national security.
      
To me, if he just follows that list.  I would think those people that supported him will be happy.  He made promises about taxes, corporate tax rates, repatriation of trillions.  If we could send that money to Michigan and Detroit and send to Wisconsin and Ohio and Pennsylvania.
      
Those most depressed areas, people that would want to build factories and manufacturing centers, I think we could see a much quicker recovery than maybe we even saw during the Reagan years.  Is that something that's on the table?

CONWAY:  Yes, it is.  It certainly is worth a try, Sean.  You are absolutely correct.  If you want to know what President Donald Trump is going to do, go read his 100-day plan, it's there for everyone to see.  It is specific and includes solutions, policies.

And I think the excuse of divided government that allows people to get nothing done is over.  The electorate gave Donald Trump the White House, but they also gave Republicans control of the House and Senate.  So that he would have a mandate.
      
He would have the tools and equipment to let him pass these pieces of legislation that he has promised.  And look at that 100-day plan.  It's what you just mentioned but things like expanding educational opportunities.
      
You know, something Governor Pence has done masterfully in Indiana is expand vocational and technical educational opportunities.  Not everyone is college material.
      
You graduate high school with skill certificate and you're imminently employable especially to administration that wants to bring back jobs that have been shipped off to China and Mexico.
      
We also have a vacancy on the United States Supreme Court.  So obviously that's a big priority.  Mr. Trump has already put out his list of possible nominations.

HANNITY:  How certain are you he have choose from that list?

CONWAY:  He said that he will.

HANNITY:  I believe he will, right?

CONWAY:  He said that he will and what's important about that list is everyone on that list is qualified to do the job.  And everyone on that list is in the mold of Anthony Scalia.  He said that's very important to him.  These are people --

HANNITY:  Without naming names --

CONWAY:  -- constitution and they don't make up the law as they go along.

HANNITY:  You spend a lot of time with Donald Trump.  Do you think he understands?  There are now lot of people kissing his ring and sucking up and he's going to be the president that probably will be the first to cut and run when things get tough and it's inevitable things are going to get tough as they do for every president?

CONWAY:  Well, perhaps.  That's human nature, but what I do know about Donald Trump is the man is brilliant and he has fabulous instincts and he read America spot on correctly.  His messages and him as a messenger and even his delivery.

His delivery system through these rallies and through -- through digital communication, some advertising, but really his personal delivery system and delivery style is what resonated.
      
I think anybody who is going to work in his administration, Sean, will realize that this is his presidency.  This is his voice.  These were his choices.  People elected him and Mike Pence to do the job.
      
People ought to be supportive of that if they want to be part of the administration.  I have to tell you the Never Trumpers have been a little quieter since Tuesday night.  They have a right to say what they want. They were dead wrong.
      
People were dead wrong about the data, about who is in the electorate, about our chances in the upper Midwest, about our chances in blue states that President Obama carried twice where I've been saying months Hillary Clinton's ceiling is 46, 47 percent.  She just can't get past it.
      
We have an opportunity.  It's his message.  You know what you learn from this election quality candidates matter.  We were always going to be outspent and never -- but never outworked or outclassed.
      
His message in the last couple weeks was positive and uplifting, but it was also very tough and very specific, but it was not negative and nasty.  We took all the incoming from the other side.
      
And history will show that the woman who lost as a first female president of the United States did it in the last couple weeks with a very nasty, negative campaign.  She paid tens of millions of dollars to just descend upon Donald Trump stop him and it didn't work.  People saw right through it.

HANNITY:  All right, Kellyanne, I assume you didn't get a lot of sleep this week.  Can you count the hours--

CONWAY:  I know it shows.

HANNITY:  -- how many hours.

CONWAY:  Not many but I'm absolutely euphoric and so happy that Donald Trump is our next president and Mike Pence is our next vice president.  I mean, it's great for the country and I will support them any way I can.

HANNITY:  All right.  Congratulations to you.  It's certainly I know you put in a lot of work.

CONWAY:  Thank you.

HANNITY:  When we come back, this is coming up next tonight on "Hannity" --

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

TRUMP:  Real change begins with immediately, immediately repealing and replacing the disaster known as Obamacare.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

(COMMERCIAL BREAK)

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

TRUMP:  As you all know, real change begins with immediately, immediately repealing and replacing the disaster known as Obamacare.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

HANNITY:  All right, that was now President-elect Donald Trump promising to repeal and replace Obamacare.  Now today according to the Wall Street Journal, Mr. Trump said he would consider leaving in place two parts of the law.

The report reads, quote, "Mr. Trump said he favors keeping the prohibition against insurers, denying coverage, because of pre-existing conditions and a provision that allows parents to provide years of additional coverage for their children on their insurance policies."
      
By the way, both Republican plans to replace had those provisions in them.  Joining us now former White House Press Secretary Ari Fleischer, and the man that had a very bad week, but it's going to be good for the country because now we could undo all the damage of Austan's horrific economic plan.
      
I guess we can't undo the damage of the debt.  More debt than every president before him combined.  How do we do that, Austan?

AUSTAN GOOLSBEE, FORMER OBAMA ECONOMIC ADVISER:  Well, I can tell you how, but it doesn't begin with electing Trump.  You are right, it was a tough week for me.

HANNITY:  I'm so sorry and you owe me money, but we will deal with that on-- in another show.  You know, look, Ari, this is going to -- going to be a lot harder than just saying repeal and replace because now we have got to put in place a plan where people can transition hopefully to healthcare savings accounts by -- every Republican plan included pre-existing conditions that I saw, portability, job to job, buying across state lines and free market competition for the plans.  But now getting off of Obamacare, how long does that take?

ARI FLEISCHER, FORMER WHITE HOUSE PRESS SECRETARY:  Well, let you put your finger on it repeal part was always the easy part.  The replace part was always the harder part, but now Republicans have to honor both.  I think it would have been more artful today if the president-elect said we will repeal Obamacare and when we replace it there are provisions that I might include in it.  He would have been better off if he had put it that way.

HANNITY:  He did say that though.  That's what he said.

FLEISCHER:  Well, he said if you look at the Wall Street Journal story, he says we are going to edit or modify repeal or replace Obamacare.  He shouldn't say modify.  You repeal it and then --

HANNITY:  But he was very clear on the campaign trail to repeal and replace.

FLEISCHER:  That's correct.  He needs to stick with that and so do the Republicans in Congress.  What's going to end up with is going to be a much skinnier provision.  Probably much more along the lines of catastrophic healthcare instead of these government mandated gold, silver, bronze plans for people.  I think you are going to see much more simplified skinny version that provides people with catastrophic care.

HANNITY:  I mean, how much will the taxpayers end up having to subsidize as well at some point now that Obama took on more debt than 43 other presidents?  We have got a debt problem and we also have an interest rate problem that at some point those rates are going to go up and that's going to impact the interest that we're paying back on the debt.  Austan, go ahead.

GOOLSBEE:  I think if he is going to start thinking on the deficit and debt way, I think that's going to run head first into his tax plan that he has outlined as one of his first priorities because he is not proposing ways to pay for that tax plan.

I think he is going to have to set some priorities here.  I hope, you know, clearly he won the election.  He won by the opposite of a landslide.  In previous, very close elections, there are different approaches.
      
John Kennedy's approach when he won by a whisker was to say, OK, look, I realize that half the country didn't want me here and I want to be a unifier so I'm going to start my priorities with the things that we can agree on and then we will move to the next thing.
      
If he starts with the infrastructure, if he starts with some of the more unifying things, I think he can be a very successful president.

HANNITY:  Why would he -- your agenda?  I think he should start with the wall.

GOOLSBEE:  I'm not talking about my agenda.

HANNITY:  He should start with the wall and start with the lowest corporate tax rate, repatriation of trillions.  He should start with repealing, replacing Obamacare.  He should start with education back to the states. He won.  Remember Mr. Obama used to say I won.

GOOLSBEE:  He won, he won very narrowly and actually more Americans voted for his opponent than voted for him.  

HANNITY:  Ari?  

GOOLSBEE:  I just think you know him and he respects you.  

ARI FLEISCHER, FORMER WHITE HOUSE PRESS SECRETARY:  You let's cut to the chase here.  All of this comes down to the central issue of our times which is economic growth and the lack therefore in the last eight years.  If President Trump can put into place provisions for corporate tax reform, individual tax reform, and policies that get economic growth revved up, it solves all the problems, Sean, you were raising about, interest rates, about the deficit, about the debt, about revenues.  All of this is tied to growth.  And this has been the failure of the Obama years.  It's what led to so much dissatisfaction among working class people because they haven't gotten raises.  Economic growth is the corner stone of it all.  This is what the Trump presidency will rise or fall upon.  

HANNITY:  You know what?  I totally agree.  

GOOLSBEE:  I agree with that.  

HANNITY:  That's why the lower tax rate, first of all, will go from seven to three.  The lower corporate tax rate will incentivize corporations to build factories, manufacturing centers, the one-time 10 percent tax on trillions.  

FLEISCHER:  Repatriation.  

HANNITY:  Overseas, repatriation, that will be a boon to the economy.  And one more factor, energy independence.  If we had a goal of energy independence in four years, include the Keystone pipeline, drilling, fracking and coal mining, millions of jobs could be created almost immediately.  I know that poor Austan Goolsbee won't like it, but the rest of America will.

GOOLSBEE:  Look, if those work, then that would be great.  All I would caution, and he respects you, Sean, and I want you to talk to him.  If he just is going to propose the things that George W. Bush proposed when he came into office, the growth slowdown is not -- did not start with Obama. It started with Bush.  

FLEISCHER:  It started with Clinton.  

(CROSSTALK)

FLEISCHER:  No, no, no, Austan.  The growth slowdown started in the summer of 2000 as you know.  George Bush inherited a mild recession.  September 11th turned into even worse economy, and the economy boomed from 2003 to 2007 as the Bush tax cuts took place.  

GOOLSBEE:  It barely a bond and followed by the worst downturn in our lifetime.  

FLEISCHER:  Absolutely wrong.  

(CROSSTALK)

HANNITY:  We've got to let it go there, guys.  The Community Reinvestment Act definitely played a part in hurting the economy, and Bush paid the price.  

GOOLSBEE:  Sean, no, no, no.  

HANNITY:  Yes.  Yes.  You can't lend money to people that can't afford to pay it back, Austan unless you can pay it back.  

GOOLSBEE:  We can agree on growth.  

HANNITY:  Good to see you both.  

Up next, tonight on "Hannity."

JACKIE IBANEZ, FOX NEWS CORRESPONDENT:  Live from America's news headquarters I'm Jackie Ibanez.  

A third night of protests against president-elect Donald Trump.  Reports of these happening in several cities and college campuses across the U.S. Protestors carrying signs and chanting anti-Trump slogans.  

GrubHub feeling the backlash of supporters of president-elect Donald Trump. The company's CEO Sent out an email following the election telling employees who voted for in Trump to quit their jobs and works somewhere else.  He has since backtracked on those remarks, but many supporters of the president-elect taking to social media, vowing to never use the food delivery service again.  

President Obama laying a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier for Veterans Day.  The president taking veterans for their selfless service and calling on unity for Americans to put aside political differences.

I'm Jackie Ibanez.  Now back to "Hannity." For all of your headlines, log on to FoxNews.com.

TRUMP:  A Trump administration will also secure and defend the borders of the United States.  

(APPLAUSE)

TRUMP:  And, yes, we will build a great wall.  And, yes, Mexico will pay for the wall.  They're going to pay for the wall.  

CROWD:  Build the wall!  Build the wall!  Build the wall!

(END VIDEO CLIP)

HANNITY:  That was president-elect Donald Trump earlier this week promising America and the American people he would build a wall with Mexico.  How fast can that happen?  Here with reaction, FOX News contributor Mercedes Schlapp and former Clinton pollster, Fox News contributor, in the end he couldn't pull the lea lever for Hillary, Doug Schoen.  How are you?

DOUG SCHOEN, FOX NEWS CONTRIBUTOR:  I'm very good, Sean.

HANNITY:  It's one thing to run.  To me it's simple.  You make a checklist. Supreme Court, refugees, cutting taxes, corporate rates, repatriation, build the wall, eliminate Obamacare, health savings accounts, education back to the states, energy independence.  You make your list and just start checking off what you promise.  

SCHOEN:  Right.  He has got to do two things.  Be true to his base, which is exactly what you say, implement the agenda, but most of all create jobs, lower taxes, promote economic growth, and put working people who went out on a limb for him as I did myself when I distanced myself from the Clintons, he has got to let them know that he has got their back and he's working to create jobs.  

HANNITY:  Energy independence, Mercedes, stopping the competition for jobs, building that wall would be a part of it, but energy independence, I think, is a huge component, potentially millions of jobs, added bonus, national security, but also those tax cuts and repatriation and Obamacare being eliminated.  Those are three huge component to economic success in my mind.

MERCEDES SCHLAPP, WASHINGTON TIMES:  Absolutely.  I think you are going to see that obviously immigration and healthcare are going to be two of the top priorities that now you will have Congress and the president working together to get this done.  But I think the tax reform component is incredibly important when you look at the fact that if you can lower the corporate tax to that 15 percent where the companies can feel that they have once again can invest in America, where the capital -- their capital is not all tied up.  And also the fact if you're cutting those regulations which we know has strangled so many businesses and so many small businesses.  If you unleash that potential in terms of the business productivity and be able to bring in more Americans to work --

HANNITY:  It would be huge.  

SCHLAPP:  -- I think it's huge.  I think it's incredibly beneficial.  

HANNITY:  When the wall starts getting built, is the left going to go insane?  

SCHOEN:  Look, there are parts of the agenda, parts, I underscore, that the left can support, which is to restrict immigration and build and provide ways to do that.  The left also can support an infrastructure program, tax reform for repatriation, getting rid of the carried interest.  

HANNITY:  Do you think they will support that?  

SCHOEN:  They should if they are smart.  If they go to Keith Ellison, if they go hard left, it could be the end of the Democratic Party as we know it and could be for me.  

HANNITY:  OK, Mercedes, last word?  

SCHLAPP:  You have to remember, Sean, I think where you can find common ground with the Democrats, actually with the Elizabeth Warren faction, is on trade, the fact that TPP will be dead under President Trump.  

HANNITY:  That's a good point.  

SCHLAPP:  The fact is that the Republicans might not feel too comfortable with that.  But it does allow Trump to have the edge of saying, look, we're going to renegotiate these trade deals and it's going to be to benefit the America American worker.  

HANNITY:  Real quick, I have got to let you go.  Listen, Mercedes, you and Matt might now be invited back to the parties again.  I wish you luck.

SCHLAPP:  The most important thing is that the American people won, Sean. That's all we care about.  

HANNITY:  We have a chance to fix this mess.

SCHLAPP:  Absolutely.

SCHOEN:  Democrats can come with part of this to make this really a great country.  

HANNITY:  I'm not counting on that, but we'll see.

SCHOEN:  I'm going to say it's got to happen.  

HANNITY:  I agree with that.

SCHOEN:  It's good for America.  

HANNITY:  It would be good for America.  

And when we come back, Hollywood celebrities are in complete, full on meltdown load because Donald Trump will be the next president.  They need to pull it together.  We'll try and help them.  Kimberly Guilfoyle and Charlie Hurt and more as "Hannity" continues.  

(COMMERCIAL BREAK)

HANNITY:  And welcome back to "Hannity." So on Tuesday, you, the voters chose president-elect Donald Trump to be the next leader of the free world, and American celebrities are not taking it too well and they need our help. Watch this.  

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE:  The message I want to spread out to other women is exactly what they're saying is not to give up.  Sorry, I want to move to Spain.  I really, really want to move to Spain right now.  And everyone in my office is like, you have a responsibility and a voice.  You need to use it.  

(APPLAUSE)

UNIDENTIFIED MALE:  I was excited yesterday, and I was really sad for her. My mom's name happens to be Hillary.   

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE:  I still think that in her lifetime she deserves to be the first female president.  And that's what makes me so sad is that I just wish that she had an opportunity because she's fought so long.  

(END VIDEO CLIP)

HANNITY:  And so while Chelsea Handler, Seth Myers, Miley Cyrus is crying. According to the New York Daily News Cher, Madonna, Mark Ruffalo actually took to the streets with fellow anti-democratic disrupters to protest the election results.  Then of course Cher previously stated that she would leave the planet if Trump was elected.  I hope she now has a spaceship available.  

Joining us now with reaction, from The Washington Times, Fox News contributor Charlie Hurt, and the co-host of the hit show "The Five" Kimberly Guilfoyle.  I am willing to pay, charter a plane for these celebrities in a way that they're accustomed.   

KIMBERLY GUILFOYLE, CO-HOST, "THE FIVE":  You're not even saying first class.  You're saying charter a plane.  What about Cher's spaceship?  

HANNITY:  I can't get a space ship.  And I'll put on champagne and caviar and steak.  But I have one stipulation.  You have to agree not to come back.  If they come back, they have to pay me four times what I paid.  

GUILFOYLE:  One way.  It's so silly.  What is wrong with these people? Honestly there are things to cry about and be upset about -- losing a loved one, getting a cancer diagnosis.  When I see Miley Cyrus crying, busted up over in tears over this, I want to be like, silly girl, maybe there are Flintstone vitamins that you can take to help alleviate your suffering.  I don't even know what to say about it.  It's sad.  

HANNITY:  There is this one Trump guy, supporter, this is really funny, because he's kind of trying to help out these people that are suffering. And this is what it does.  Watch.  

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

UNIDENTIFIED MALE:  To all of the Trump haters, all of the Hillary Clinton supporters, all of the people that said that my Trump was going to lose, so I say to you, this morning, the day after the election --

(LAUGHTER)

(END VIDEO CLIP)

HANNITY:  That is the greatest laugh, ever.  Charlie, what is your reaction to all the madness?  

CHARLES HURT, POLITICAL COLUMNIST, WASHINGTON TIMES:  You have to admit as much as I love a Donald Trump campaign appearance, that montage you played at the beginning was every bit as entertaining as any Trump rally I've ever been to.  

On a serious note, though, why is it, obviously they're deluded and they're very self-conscious about the fact that they're deluded people and they don't really produce anything of any value to society, but why is it that they're always talking about going to Canada.  Why don't they move to Mexico?  Why don't they move to Guatemala?  Is it because they want to go to a whiter place?  Are they racist?  

HANNITY:  That's a good point.  By the way, I don't think Canada wants Lena Dunham.  

GUILFOYLE:  They're going to build a wall.

HANNITY:  People have been asking me, you probably feel great.  I do, but it's not, I feel more relief that there is an opportunity, a huge opportunity here to fix the country.  And I call it the forgotten man election, because I think so many people out of work, so many people in poverty, food stamps, they can't buy a house.  That to me is what this election is about.  What I don't understand is how the left after eight years of Obama can't see how bad he made things.  

GUILFOYLE:  Right, but you know what is so scary here is that I'm having a moment because Michael Moore agrees with you.  He said the same thing. This is about when you punish and burden the middle class, then you take away what people really value most which is being able to provide for families, to have some stability and certainty for the future.  When you strip them and their table bare at their home --

HANNITY:  Then why can't you say what is so obvious, that Obama failed?  

HURT:  Because he doesn't care about those people.  He doesn't know them anymore.  He is as out of touch as anybody.  He likes to pretend he's in touch with those people, but he's not.  He doesn't know any of them.  He doesn't talk to them or think about their problems.  

But the thing about the extraordinary opportunity that Donald Trump has today reminds me of, you know, I didn't agree with Barack Obama.  But when he first won his first election in 08, it was a stunning moment in this country.  And he did have an extraordinary opportunity, and he had Democrats in Congress.  And he could have done so much.  He could have talked with authority unlike any president before him.  He blew it.  Every single thing he could have done he ruined.  

HANNITY:  Donald Trump will undo on day one, much of that agenda because he felt he could usurp the powers of Congress, use executive order, and so too can Donald Trump undo all of that.  

GUILFOYLE:  Right.  But the call for unity came in the final and last year of President Barack Obama's presidency where all of a sudden he wants to unify because Donald Trump is there and he knows this is the guy that's now at the wheel of Obama's legacy bus and is driving it and is going to determine what stays and what will go.  

But we've already seen for all the people who are hysterical out there and breathing into brown paper bags and hyperventilating is that, hey, guys, president-elect Donald Trump is willing to listen and do the best practices and put the best and brightest people in and make sure that we do have good quality health care and he's willing to keep certain aspects that in fact would benefit people across the country.  

HANNITY:  I don't think there is a good aspect to Obamacare, though, for the record.  

GUILFOYLE:  I know, Sean.  I'm going to be making a Miley Cyrus crying video.  

(LAUGHTER)

HANNITY:  Yes, exactly.  

HURT:  Sean, there are going to be some tough things along those lines for conservatives.  There's no doubt about it.

HANNITY:  It's good to see you all.  When we come back, we need your help on what has been a historic week with a very important "Question of the Day." That's next.  

(COMMERCIAL BREAK)

HANNITY:  Welcome back to "Hannity." Time for the "Question of the Day." Who would you like to see in the Trump administration?  Who would you like to see him surround himself with?  Just go to Facebook.com/SeanHannity, @SeanHannity on Twitter.  

And before we go, we want to wish all of our veterans a happy Veterans Day and we want to thank you for your sacrifice, for your service.  What a week it's been, very historic.  

That's all the time we have left for this evening.  Hope you have a great weekend.  We'll see you back here on Monday.
