7:01 pm
we don't know what the delegate count is going to be. numbers i have been seeing up to now almost 60% or above. if he gets 50% in every district and wins the state, can you wins a many as 9 a delegates tonight. >> we're very excited. big night. no place like home as they say. we knew we were going to do well so far based on what i'm seeing and you are seeing simultaneously bigger win than we ever imagined and going to be a great week. >> yeah. what do you make of all the issues in the last two weeks about delegates? for example, statements like georgia, south carolina, places that kind of long forgotten. >> yeah. listen, it's amazing. when you let the voters vote. we do incredibly well. when you try to suppress that it's a different system. that system made sense 200 years ago, sean. 150 years ago when people lived on a were if a. they didn't have the library of congress on finger tips and access on iphones. didn't have the access to information. we have to let the american people decide. it's actually a joke. i feel like i'm in communist china sometimes watching this stuff. it's crazy. when the american people get
7:02 pm
to vote, we win. >> i think there is a certainty for reform. the democrats are even worse because they have this whole super delegate system. >> right. >> but i always think, all right, if it's a national party, the people represent the party. so you should have either a caucus or primary. let the people participate, every person that wants to. you can be proportional or winner-take-all. and i think every delegate should be bound. are you upset about the process and what's been happening in terms of states that have already taken place. >> people first time. seeing the delegate system how unfair it is. look at colorado. colorado is perfect example of this. people didn't get to vote. as don just said that really isn't democracy. people are upset about it people are upset about it. in the republican party they should want to expand the voter base, right? and doing that, quite frankly, especially to the frontrunner, it does the exact opposite. it has the exact reciprocal effect. >> this is a record turnout here, too. republicans and primaries are way out performing democrats from where they were in 2008. >> especially in spring states, right? one of the things that never
7:03 pm
gets talked about when they speak about cruz is we are winning so many of the states in order to win the general election, whether it be florida. you have seen how well we have done other places. look how well we didn't d. tonight in new york. can you imagine if a republican took the state of new york. >> it's interesting. hillary clinton the senator here we didn't project her right at 9:00 straight up when we came on the air. >> we saw it at 9:00:00:1. that's pretty fast. the g.o.p. hasn't won new york since '84. manage putting that in play for the general. should embrace that. not run for it. they are worried about someone who is going to shake it up and worried about someone get rid of cadre system. there is no accountability. put together terrible candidates. they lose and guess what? nothing happens. they have have their job. it doesn't matter. >> what about reince priebus saying everybody knew the rules ahead of time. should you have competed differently maybe in a state like colorado. >> no. because my father wants to speak to the people. he has given people a voice. he wants to focus on the
7:04 pm
blue collar hard working americans. the only non-protected class in this country are the people who made this country great. are the people who built this country. and they don't have a voice anymore. he wants to be their voice. he wants to make sure they are heard. >> i thought one of the more fascinating descriptions of your dad came from you. you once called him on my show a blue collar billionaire. >> 100 percent. >> that's an interesting line. >> that's how he is. you see him just the way he gets along with people. whether it's the construction workers on our job sites because he is also the only candidate up there who has actually created jobs. hard to believe. he gets there. he just understands these people so well. he is really one of them. he has been very successful. he is incredibly smart and wealthy. he is that guy. is he an ordinary american in many respects when you get him on one on one alone. >> i have talked to you brothers a little bit more than you, tiffany. i saw an interesting quote but fairly recently where you said that your father's work ethic, you don't want to underperform. you want to overperform that he has inspired you. what did that mean? >> i think my father is just someone who motivates all of
7:05 pm
us, truly. and all of my siblings who work so hard and with the american people he really is relatable to them. my family in georgia. my mom is in georgia. and everyone is just rooting, rooting for my father, trying to get hats. we can't even get my closest relatives hats. it's just a movement and amazing to finally seeing something happening and changing in politics. >> did any of you expect this from your father. >> always. if there is one thing i have learned in my life, never underestimate him. if he gets into something is he going to do well and do it right. unlike a lot of the other candidates they win by one vote and everyone else should drop out. everyone else should drop out. if ted cruz comes in a distant third in new york state. maybe he should think about doing the same thing, sean. >> think about the new york values certain little and our exit polls showed that it had an impact on people. let me get back to the delegate issue. this is a very big issue. mitch mcconnell i want the delegates to pick somebody who can win. i don't think is he talking about your father. mitt romney has talked about
7:06 pm
it john kasich has talked about it karl rove has talked about it and even state g.o.p. leaders have talked about a white knight candidate. so my question is, if they were to try to disenfranchise the voters, what's your reaction? where does that go. >> isn't that ironic given millions of votes ahead of everybody. you have seen the performance today and up to today. he was a couple million votes ahead. after the 26 he will be many million votes further ahead amazing. you see the turnout at the polls. states like nevada they had the biggest turnout they have ever had. look at south carolina and new hampshire. these states are having the biggest turnouts that they have ever had. you see the amount of people came to the polls today. democrats who want to do vote republican who didn't know the rules. they were getting turned away left and right. you see in pennsylvania, quite frankly, how many people registered there were democrats who registered as republicans very early. >> almost 100,000. that's happened. >> why turn those people away? i don't get it. >> he is growing the base. >> he is growing the party.
7:07 pm
that's amazing thing. >> numbers 1237 still have a hot of contests to go. if your dad gets anywhere 58 to 90 delegates appears he is on track to tonight. that gives him an almost 300 delegate lead heading in the states connecticut he is up 20. up 20 in pennsylvania. up 20 in maryland. delaware, rhode island both seem to be going in his favor. so now is he going to get a lot of momentum coming out of here. if he fell 37 short in the delegate count, and they try to steal it, what happens? >> oh, i think you destroy the party. why go through this process if that's going to happen, sean? they have made people watch how many hundreds of debates at this point? every day. if i see one more countdown clock for an event that doesn't happen for six days and they are counting down, it's only four days, three hours and 76 seconds. it's ridiculous. if i see one more of those things talking about -- why get people so vested? why get people so vested if you are going to say you know what is we're going to do. this you're going to show up and vote and take a year of
7:08 pm
your life in terms of news cycle and guess what, we were just kidding. sean, your vote doesn't matter. it's crazy. you are going to disenfranchise so many voters. >> this is serious. >> on both sides by the way. on both sides destroy the system as we know it makes it viable for a third party, sean. >> people go in to caucusing or voting and they spend time and watch shows like this. they make informed decision about who they want to vote for. >> look at arizona, right? people are waiting in line for three or four hours in order to vote. so then you tell them that that vote meant nothing and they were just suggesting a candidate? their vote didn't count for anything it was more of a suggestion than anything? that doesn't work. that's not democracy in play. >> there are two issues at play here. i think these are arcane rules that are outdated, need reform. but there is also the other side of the argument which is, okay, everybody knew the rules going in. what i also don't like is this idea okay, delegates are commit to do say your father or ted cruz on john kasich. but then, okay, the other candidates will come in
7:09 pm
behind your back. go back to those states and what are they organize them? >> bribing them. it's bribery. if we did that in business, you go to jail. how does it work in politics? >> they they pay for hotel room plain ride and dinners had? >> they understanding it and disgusted. the amount of people that grab me on the street. the amount of people going in to vote i can't believe the system because they weren't even aware of the system. the average voter has no idea that this is going on behind their backs that their vote really in many respects doesn't even matter. yet in colorado they saw this in wyoming and they are disgusted. >> i have three of the children here, i have got to ask this question because it's important. all right. so, who got in trouble the most? [ laughter ] >> you? >> does that surprise you, sean? >> no. that's why i get along with him so well because i got in trouble since i was in first grade. i got taken home by the cops. >> barbara walters asked that question once. all five kids were on the air. my dad was there and she started of asking the question. she got a third of the way through the question.
7:10 pm
next question it was over. >> you told me a story once you told me on radio show your dad, you are 7 or 8 years old asked imto get him a coke can and didn't get it? >> he came back from a rather rough day of work. run to the kitchen and grab me a coke. i said, you know, i'm not your explicative maid. and i have never seen the man move so fast in my life, sean. i mean, and my mom caught me at the top of the stairs and just handed me to him. she is that european tough disciplinarian type. i learned never to do that one again. >> did you learn from your brother's mistakes. >> i did. he definitely took more of it. >> blame it on him. >> honestly he was such an amazing father. he could not have been a better father. he could not be a better boss to all of us. sitting in a room here today, i could not be more proud of the man. is he so fantastic and such a great night. >> did the treat you well. >> they better treat me well or be in trouble. >> it's more the boyfriends that i have to worry. they have a lot more fear. >> are they tough on your
7:11 pm
boyfriends. >> they want to take care of me. i appreciate it. >> you appreciate that? well, congratulations. big night for your dad. nice meet you too. thanks. appreciate it. bill hemmer is standing by at the hannity big board tonight. is he going to break down how tonight's results will impact that delegate count out of new york. also reaction from laura ingraham. former new york city mayor rudy giuliani will join us right here on set. that and more as we continue live tonight from trump tower. hannity continues on the road. it's intelligent enough to warn of danger from virtually anywhere. it's been smashed and driven. it's perceptive enough to detect other vehicles on the road. it's been shaken and pummeled. it's innovative enough to brake by itself, park itself and help you steer. it's been in the rain... and dragged through the mud. the 2016 gle. it's where brains meet brawn. lease the gle350 for $599 a month
7:12 pm
at your local mercedes-benz dealer. no problem. that's a lot of dishes& i'll use a lot of detergent. dish issues? get cascade platinum. one pac cleans tough food better than 6 pacs of the bargain brand combined. cascade. hey liquid wart remover? could! take weeks to treat. embarrassing wart? dr. scholl's freeze away wipes 'em out fast with as few as one treatment. freeze away! dr. scholl's. the #1 selling freeze brand. they found out who's been who? cking into our network. guess. i don't know, some kids in a basement? you watch too many movies. who? a small business in china. a business? they work nine to five. they take lunch hours. like a job? like a job. we tracked them.
7:13 pm
how did we do that? we have some new guys defending our network. new guys? well, they're not that new. they've been defending things for a long time. [ digital typewriting ] it's not just security. it's defense. bae systems. we are going to be so strong again. really, i mean, legitimately, so grit again. and i just can't wait. so, we don't have much of a
7:14 pm
race anymore. based on what i'm seeing on television. senator cruz is just about mathematically eliminated. [cheers] >> so we're going to celebrate for about two hours. and then early in the morning i get up and we begin working again. >> all right, that was donald trump speaking earlier tonight after his big win in new york and the republican primary. and joining us now on set, well, first, big board back we call it the billboard and hannity big board is our own friend bill hemmer. how does it work out with the delegate county hour? what do you got? cannot provide delegates for new york state yet, sean. donald trump is doing really well in new york. let's make that clear. will he get all 95 delegates? it's tough to stay. one probletion put trump around 90 delegates which would be certainly enormous for his campaign. might really change the arc
7:15 pm
of this race. i will tell you why, okay? this is our delegate projection. new york is not on the map. trump starts tonight at 756. needs to get to 1237. sean, i will take you a week from today, right? this five states, we think he does well in rhode island, connecticut, delaware, maryland, pennsylvania. now we're in the month of may. indiana is tough to figure. and just as we were listening to trump last hour, he said tomorrow he goes indiana and he goes to pennsylvania. why is that? right now we believe indiana favors ted cruz who will give that in the cruz column. then the week after is nebraska. we think that winner-take-all favors cruz. same day west virginia we believe fafers donald trump. now we are third week of may, sean, owing is close, so is washington state. we will split it up right now. then you have got to the five remaining states on the map. just follow my scenario, sean. we believe cruz is favored in montana likewise for montana. we still think california favors trump with 100
7:16 pm
delegates right now out of 172 and we still think he wins winner-take-all in knowledge. on -- new jersey. on this tabulation is he 157 shy. so where does he go to look for these delegates? you know, maybe our projection is wrong about indiana. the reason i say that is because there is no state polling happening. there is very little information that would indicate perhaps maybe which way the hoosier state is going. maybe trump goes there and flips indiana. and now you see those numbers drop again. and then we move into the month of june. maybe montana, which is winner-take-all by the way. and 27 delegates on the line. maybe trump does well out there. you see now where he starts to pick off some delegates. we are being a little generous as we knock down these numbers. i will give them back to cruz for the sake of this argument. one more point, pennsylvania has 71 delegates, sean. but they will only award 17 next tuesday night. 54 will be unbound, which
7:17 pm
means they can go wherever they want in the first ballot in cleveland, ohio, on july 18th. those 54 unbound delegates will join about 140 others for a grand total of 170 unbound. that will be up for grabs come convention time if it goes this way. you know, that's just one scenario we are trying to figure out. it is guesswork. it is not science for the moment, sean. >> you know, thanks, bill hemmer at the billboard. the hannity big board. we call it both. we both share it together. >> as you like. >> but you can literally break it down. the a.p. had an article that got trump to 1238 this week. all depends on some of these unbound delegates where they go. pennsylvania has some very interesting ways in which delegates are ultimately going to be bound to candidates. many are unbound. you only get 17 for winning the state. then some 54 unbound. you have the names of the
7:18 pm
delegates on the ballot. but not next to the candidate that they are supporting. so it gets pretty complicated. bill hemmer thank you so much. >> talk to you a bit later. thanks. >> joining us now on set former new york city mayor rudy giuliani is with us. mr. mayor, how are you? >> i'm very god. >> all right. obviously a big night for trump. we don't know the total delegate count. should be between 88 and 95 by the looks of it and the numbers we are running. my question is, you have voted for him today. you said you support him not endorse? >> people think that support is endorsement. my view of endorsement is being part of the campaign. but i fully support him, completely urge people to vote for him. i think he would be the best candidate to beat hillary clinton. i'm just not part of the campaign and i don't want people to think that i am. >> stay right there, mr. mayor. we're going to dip in and hear a little bit of hillary clinton talking in new york. she is a clinton headquarters as we continue our coverage from trump
7:19 pm
tower tonight. we're just going to -- let's hear a little bit from hillary right now. ♪ these streets will make you feel brand new ♪ the lights will inspire you ♪ let's hear it for new york, new york, new york. [cheers and applause] [cheers and applause] >> thank you, new york. [chanting hillary] >> thank you all so much. thank you, you know, today, today you proved once again there's no place like home.
7:20 pm
be. [cheers and applause] you know, in this campaign we have won in every region of the country. from the north, to the south, to the east, to the west. but this one's personal. [cheers and applause] new yorkers, you have always -- you have always had my back and i have always tried to have yours. [cheers and applause] today together we did it again and i am deeply, deeply grateful. i want to thank everyone who came out and voted and to all of you across new york, who have known me and worked with me for so long.
7:21 pm
[cheers and applause] it is humbling. it's humbling that you'd trust me with the awesome responsibilities that await our next president. [cheers] >> and to all the people who supported senator sanders, i believe there is much more that unites us than divides us. [cheers and applause] you know, we started this race not far from here on roosevelt island. pledging to build on the progressive being tradition that's done so much for america from franklin roosevelt to barack obama. [cheers and applause]
7:22 pm
and tonight a little less than a year later the race for the nomination is in the home stretch and victory is in sight. [chanting hillary] and i want to -- i want to say -- i want to say to all of my supporters and all of the voters, have you carried us every step of the way with passion and determination that some critics tried to dismiss. [cheers and applause] because of you, this campaign is the only one, democrat or republican who win more than 10 million votes.
7:23 pm
but i am going forward because more voices remain to be heard. and tomorrow it's on to connecticut, delaware, maryland, pennsylvania, rhode island. and beyond. [cheers and applause] we need to you keep volunteering. i hope you will join the one .1 million people who already contributed at hillary [cheers and applause] and by the way, most with less than $100 because we have more work to do. under the bright lights of new york, we have seen that it's not enough to diagnose problems. you have to explain how you actually solve the problems.
7:24 pm
[cheers and applause] that's what we have to do together. for our kids, for each other, for our country. so i want you with me to imagine a tomorrow where no barriers hold you back and all of our people can share in the promise of america. imagine a tomorrow where every parent can find a good job and every grandparent can enjoy a secure retirement. [cheers and applause] where no child grows up in the shadow of discrimination or under the specter of deportation. [cheers and applause] where hard work is honored, families are supported, and communities are strong. a tomorrow where we trust and respect each other despite our differences.
7:25 pm
[cheers and applause] because we're going to make positive differences in people's lives. that is what this is supposed to be about. actually helping people and each other. [cheers and applause] [chanting hillary] >> we all know too many people who are still hurting. i see it everywhere i go. the great recession wiped out jobs, homes, and savings, and a lot of americans haven't yet recovered. but i still believe, with all my heart, that as another great democratic president once said "there's nothing wrong with america that can't be cured by what's right with america."
7:26 pm
[cheers and applause] that is after all what we have always done. it's who we are. america is a problem-solve be nation. and in this campaign we are setting bold, progressive goals backed up by real plans that will improve lives, creating more good jobs that provide dignity and pride in a middle class life, raising wages and reducing inequality. making sure all our kids get a good education no matter what zip code they live in. [cheers and applause] building ladders of opportunity and empowerment so all of our people can go as far as as their hard work and talent will take them. let's revitalize places that have been left out and left behind from inner cities to coal country to indian country and let's put
7:27 pm
americans to work rebuilding our crumbling infrastructure, including our failing water systems like the one in flint, michigan. [cheers and applause] there are many places across our country where children and families are at risk from nhe water they drink and the air they breathe. let's combat climate change and make america the clean energy super power of the 21st century. let's take on the challenge of sis sem mick systemic racism and invest in communities of color. and finally pass comprehensive immigration reform. [cheers and applause]
7:28 pm
and once and for all let's equal pay for women. [cheers and applause] and we are going to keep our families safe and our country strong and we're going to defend our rights, civil rights, voting rights, workers rights, women's rights, lbgt rights and rights for people with disabilities. [cheers and applause] those are, after all, new york values and they are american values. [cheers and applause] and just as we did in this primary campaign, we need to stand up for them, throw the general election and every day after that. you know, it's becoming
7:29 pm
clearer that this may be one of the most consequential elections of our lifetime. [ applause ] donald trump and ted cruz. [crowd booing] are pushing a vision for america that's divisive and frankly dangerous. returning to trickle down economics, opposing any increase in the minimum wage, restricting a woman's right to make her own healthcare decisions. promising to round up millions of immigrants. [crowd booing] >> threatening to ban all muslims from entering the country. [crowd boos] planning to treat american muslims like criminals. [crowd boos] >> these things go against everything america stands for.
7:30 pm
and we have a very different vision. it's about lifting each other up, not tearing each other down. [cheers and applause] instead of building walls we are going to break down barriers. and in this campaign i have seen again our remarkable diversity and determination. this is a state and a country of big-hearted, open-minded, straight talking, hard working people. [cheers and applause] you know, like john, a firefighter from the south bronx that i met shortly after 9/11 as he searched for survivors at ground zero, and like so many others, john got sick from breathing the toxic air. when we met again last week, he gave me a replica of his fdny badge and thanked me for helping other first
7:31 pm
responders get the healthcare they need. we have to keep fighting for john and all of our firefighters and our police officers, our emergency responders and the construction workers who did so much for us. [cheers and applause] or maxine 27-year-old single mom from staten island who is here tonight. [cheers and applause] she shared with me how she worked her way out of poverty, graduated from college, thanks in part to the help she got from her child from the children's health insurance program that we started in the 1990s. [cheers and applause] or mikey from -- town, is
7:32 pm
mikey here? well, i will tell you, mikey spent 6 months in rikers for low level drug offense. and he found out how hard it is for people who have done their time to find jobs when they get out. mikey manage to do start his own ice cream shop. i took a lot of you in the media there yesterday. i highly recommend it as you might have seen. i couldn't stop myself from eating it as soon as i got it. by the way, he made a concoction for me called victory. [cheers and applause] but mikey is one of the many reasons why we have to reform our criminal justice system and ban the box so others have a fair chance to
7:33 pm
succeed. [cheers and applause] you know, new yorkers and americans speak every language, follow every faith, hail from every continent. our diversity is one of our greatest strengths in the 21st century. not a weakness. as robert kennedy whose senate seat i was honored to hold once said, we are a great country, an unselfish country and a compassionate country. and no matter what anyone tells you or what you might hear from others running for president, that is still true today. [cheers and applause] america is great and we can do great things if we do them together. [cheers and applause] so, please join us, text,
7:34 pm
join, 47426, go to hillary be part of this campaign. i know how important it is that we get the campaign's resources from people just like you who go in and chip in $5, $25. i am grateful to every one of you. and to the volunteers who have worked your hearts out. [cheers and applause] >> by the way, hillary clinton wrapping up her victory speech from tonight and, of course, she is finishing up and giving out her email address. we continue with former new york city mayor rudy giuliani. you saw some attacks there, republicans are dangerous and. [ laughter ] >> well, that's what she sudden. >> we haven't revealed any top secret information as far as can i tell. >> that's a great point, right? >> or committed any crimes. >> we haven't taken
7:35 pm
$1.2 million from ubs and made a phone call to try to get help for ubs by the secretary of state. >> want to take away a woman's right to choose. republicans are dangerous. this is the old playbook they use at part of the election. >> we weren't part of the bimbow. squad. they want to talk about attacking women? you have got to be kidding me. >> in terms of a candidate i have watched in my life. never been anyone viewed with numbers 60-some odd percent of americans unlikeable, untrust wort and dishonest. >> the reason i take the position that i take is that there are a lot of republican that have to be brought along here. donald trump has demonstrated something tonight that no other candidate demonstrates. can he win in the knot and can he win in the south. whoever wins new york and mississippi -- >> senator, good point. >> how about alabama and massachusetts? cruz is a sectional
7:36 pm
candidate at best. and he even lost in the section he could win in. i would like to see senator cruz, governor kasich, you know, these people who are saying i'm not going to come to the convention. i'm not going to vote for trump. if cruz was the candidate, i'm going to support him, i'm going to vote for him because i'm a republican. i am trying as best i can by having some objectivity here and presenting myself to friends of mine who don't want to come along and support trump, i want to see if i can bring them along. because i think when they really face the reality of it, we don't want her. we don't want somebody that dealt with national security with the kind of reckless disregard that she did. you know how many months did i give you my 13 possible crimes she committed? >> i thought it was 16. >> then i added three more and gave it to you. we don't want a president like that. >> here's the question. right now the intensity, the
7:37 pm
anger between cruz supporters against trump supporters. trump supporters against cruz supporters. if the polls hold up, ted cruz as of next tuesday might be in the same position as john kasich where it was mathematically impossible. >> that's wife we have got to calm this down. we need some objectivity. i have a lot of very good friends who you know, that don't support donald trump. i want to bring them along. i think it's possible to bring them along. because i know when they calm down, and i have been in tough elections but i know what happens when you calm down, they are going to realize that donald trump is much better for this country than hillary clinton. >> what do you make of what's happening on the delegate side of things? in other words,. >> this is going to turn some of those delegates. you know some of those delegates that were moving toward cruz, when they see a big win in new york like this, when they see the kind of cross sectional support that trump has, that cruz
7:38 pm
does not have, when they see that tiny little number that cruz got in new york, how key ever win new york? how key ever win massachusetts? how could he ever win california? >> do you think trump can win those states? those are deep blue states. >> i think trump is viable almost everywhere. trump is hillary's worse nightmare. >> why do you say that? >> i say that because she knows how to run against senator cruz. straight fast ball. over the middle of the plate. they have been hitting that one out of the park for years. donald trump, as i described once before, is a marianne know rivera cut fast ball. you don't know where is he coming at. >> you that's true. he has done it for years. if i were her and i mean it honestly if i everywhere her i would wanted to run against senator cruz. i have great respect for him but i would rather run against him than i would donald. playbook to running against cruz. no playbook running against mr. trump.
7:39 pm
>> thank you so much for stopping by. >> thank you. >> with us is fox news laura ingraham stopping by. the battle that is emerging in terms of if a candidate doesn't cigarette to 1237. you might say enticement going on. courting of dels to switch to a second ballot vote. your thoughts. >> shawn, i don't even think the question tonight after watching this marv victory by trump in new york is whether he gets to 1237. he may. he may not. but unless something really wacky happens over the next, you know, 4 to 6 weeks. is he going to go into that convention with the most delegates and the most votes. and tonight's exit poll showed that 70% of new yorkers said that the person with the most delegates and most votes should become the nominee. so the only question i think after tonight and after as rudy pointed out the broad victories he has had in the northeast and he will have
7:40 pm
in the south and have in places like new york and out in arizona. the only question is how far will the republican establishment go to kill off this guy who is the most popular of all the other candidates? this is analysis. this is not endorsement of trump. this is an analysis. how far will mitch mcconnell and paul rind and all the other other people who say they are not putting their finger on the scale come on. we heard mitch mcconnell and paul ryan talk about the negative tone. we heard about trump staffers being blacklist if they ever try to work again. who has the bad tone now? is it trump or the g.o.p. establishment that seems like it's pulling out every stop to try to stop him from getting this nomination? i think that's the real question. >> new york voters in exit polls said -- 70% of them said that the person who has the most votes, the most delegates, won the most states, they should get the
7:41 pm
nomination. now, mitch mcconnell and it was 60% interestingly in wisconsin where donald trump did not win in wisconsin. but, still, the people there said the same. mitch mcconnell said when we get a nominee at 1237 he will actually be the candidate. if not there will be a second ballot and i want dels to pick somebody who can win. now, when you add those comments to mitt romney's comments to karl rove's comments. prominent people within the g.o.p. >> doesn't it sound like they want the white knight candidate and they want to defy the will of the voters and disenfranchise them? >> i think sean this is going to be a come to jesus moment and it better come soon. he be be really sure the delegate maneuvering which he has done which has been good for him it's been the smart thing to do. he better make sure that all these people are wrapped up for him because he might get to that convention and find a stiletto in his back figuratively speaking.
7:42 pm
and he will have no leverage at that point and how much power will he have if hillary ends up being president of the united states? how much power will any of these republicans have their agenda, their foreign policy, their, maybe they will get their trade from hillary and maybe they will get immigration amnesty finally from hillary, but, as far as the supreme court, everything that we know is so important, they will lose it all. so i know all the never trumpers feel like they are clean and they are pure and all of that, but if the majority of americans and most delegates of the whole group goes to the guy who doesn't get the nomination, i don't see how this is going to end up well for the republicans. i think it's a perilous course. and if this were anyone else but trump right now, we would be seeing a coronation over at capitol hill at the rnc headquarters. but, because it's him, no such happening. >> so the establishment is mad at how the people have voted people by the way that
7:43 pm
have legitimate anger and frustration with the republican party that has promise to do stop amnesty and repeal and replace obamacare and hold the strings of the purse wasn't done. create atmosphere where people want outsider and now work behind the scenes perhaps dovously to try to take that vote against the people or work against the candidate. is that something we have to watch out for? >> i don't see a lot of signs that the establishment an even most of the big donors are learning all that much from all of this. it would be nice if instead of the comment we heard from mitch mcconnell that he is basically looking forward to a second ballot. if someone like a mcconnell who is a smart guy who said, you know, we are watching that's going on. we are hearing the people substantive concern. not the personality contest. not the beauty contest. but the substantive concerns they have about the trade deal, about open borders.
7:44 pm
about more foreign workers coming in. about the refugees pouring into the country. we hear you and we're going to make revisions. we are going to at least meet you halfway people. sean, if the party no longer represents the people on key issues, then there really is no party. at some point the party just becomes something else, i guess. >> well, if they try to white knight strategy, which mitch mcconnell was talking about and other prominent republicans are there will be no party. it's predicated on anger resentment and hostility and disenfrance chizment. laura, good to see you. thank you. joining us on set with reaction donald trump's manager paul paul manafort. >> couple of close con grecial districts we will top out over 90 delegates tonight. >> almost a clean sweep. >> at least 90 out of 95 and
7:45 pm
maybe a few more. >> big night. let's talk about, there was an article in real clear politics today. we have been following, for example, states we thought were long done finished and over. following states like south carolina, georgia, other places. and there seems to be the courting of the delegates to on a second ballot to switch to another candidate. how big an issue is that in your mind? >> there is not going to be a second ballot. it's not an issue. >> you are convinced? >> we have several ways to get to 1237 by early june. and today was a giant step forward. we think we are going to have another great week next week. more importantly you saw record turnout today in new york. a record turnout with a primary that everybody knew donald trump was going to win. >> does it bother you when real clear politics has an article out today that, quote, cruz can come in dead last in pennsylvania, which is a week from now and still take more than half the delegates? >> cruz may take dead last
7:46 pm
in the vote but is he not going to take half the delegates. >> so you have no concern about that or any of the other states or can you bring us inside how you get to 1237? i tried to get that out of you last week. >> i could and you are not going to get it out of me. we have several ways to get there. today, the 90-plus that we got today exceeded my base count in this state. >> what about the cruz campaign and reince priebus saying everybody knew the rules coming in and in states like colorado, wyoming and other places, the campaign should have competed harder. what's your answer to that. >> donald trump is not saying he didn't know the rules. he is saying the rules are not fair. the voters, the republicans and independents who have participated they don't understand the rules. when they think they are voting for donald trump, and they are not getting the delegate support that because of the rules of the various states, donald trump is saying that's a rigged system. is he not saying. this is where there is confusion.
7:47 pm
he knows he can't change the rules this time. is he saying it's a rigged political system. is he going to change it when he is president and leader of the party. >> it's either caucus or primary. proportional and winner-take-all and bound delegates. >> good to see you, sean. >> more hannity after this break as we continue straight ahead. real is touching a ray. amazing is moving like one. real is making new friends.
7:48 pm
amazing is getting this close. real is an animal rescue. amazing is over twenty-seven thousand of them. there is only one place where real and amazing live. seaworld. real. amazing

welcome back to hannity was we continue donald trump and hillary clinton big winners in new york tonight. joining us now peter johnson jr., geraldo rivera, doug schoen, what does this mean on the republican side, peter. it's momentum. two weeks, interval. ted cruz had a win in wisconsin and now a big win for donald trump here. >> donald trump made a great point tonight for his campaign that they can't beat him mathematically that he is on the road for victory. the second point we heard it from his children was that cruz and kasich are the interrupters. donald trump is not the interrupter. they are the spoilers. they are the people who want to get in the way of fair play and the democratic process in this country. and that they don't have a mathematical chance of winning, why are they in the race. >> ted cruz will still likely have one after tonight. >> barely. >> after next tuesday he
7:53 pm
will not. >> barely,. >> it's bye-bye bernie, cruz is old news. america has the matchup they have wanted for six months hillary clinton vs. donald trump. everything you hear from now until november, i submit, is just noise this is a fair fight. ideological differences that are clear. right, left, red, blue. >> you don't think the republicans in cleveland are requesting to try to take this from trump? >> they will be absolutely irrelevant. i'm telling you, sean, what happened tonight is doug is shaking his head. >> is the presumptive nominee. >> something replicated in new jersey and pennsylvania and maryland and rhode island and in connecticut. trump is, i think tonight the presumptive nominee. >> sean, not with understanding what geraldo and peter say, the republican establishment is not going to accept these results even though the mandate from the people is clear. big night for hillary clinton. the nomination as geraldo suggests is effectively resolved. bernie will fold eventually because he cannot win.
7:54 pm
hillary is the frontrunner and as long as the republicans are divided, it only helps the democrats and hillary. >> all right. >> i believe in frank cap meet john doll. mr. smith goes to washington. i believe fair play will win out. >> amazing how we learned how deeply there is this divide and how the establishment hates how voters have voted this election be it for cruz or trump. two insurgents. they don't like either one of them. >> something else has happened ted cruz coming from a state as proud as texas should have known when you come to new york after you have insulted new york and expect new yorkers to have that kind of short-term memory to forgive you i think was preposterous. >> he got burned and he deserved it. >> exit polls show that was a big issue. we have hannity coming up on election night coverage straight ahead.

they can pool together in the heart, forming a clot that can break free, and travel upstream to the brain where it can block blood flow and cause a stroke. but if you have afib that's not caused by a heart valve problem, pradaxa can help stop clots from forming. pradaxa was better than warfarin at reducing the risk of stroke, in a clinical trial - without the need for regular blood tests. and, in the rare event of an emergency, pradaxa is the only oral blood thinner other than warfarin with a specific reversal treatment to help your body clot normally again. pradaxa is not for people who have had a heart valve replacement. don't stop taking pradaxa without talking to your doctor. stopping increases your risk of stroke or blood clots. ask your doctor if you need to stop pradaxa before any planned medical or dental procedure. pradaxa can cause serious, and sometimes, fatal bleeding. don't take pradaxa if you have abnormal bleeding. and seek immediate medical care for unexpected signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. pradaxa may increase your bleeding risk if you're 75 or older, have kidney problems, stomach ulcers,
