in the meantime, good night. have a great weekend. be sure to tune in the sean hannity, which follows thi this. >> sean: tonight... >> today, sanctions really represent a very, very strong stand against the actions inay iran. >> sean: cracking down on iran over a ballistic missiles test. plus... terrorists strike paris again. dr. sebastian gorka is here with reaction. then... 11 are arrested after another liberal anti-free-speech freak out on the campus of new york university. we are in houston, texas, ahead of super bowl li, former nfl stars cris carter, tiki barber, tim tebow, joe namath and bob
kraft joins us. "hannity" from houston starts right here right now. and welcome to "hannity," we are coming to you from the home of super bowl li. hello, houston. just a second. a full preview of the sunday show down. but first, president donald trump is showing the world that there is a new sheriff in town. and that is tonight's opening monologue. earlier today, in response to iran conducting a ballistic missile test, the white house announced new sanctions against 13 individuals and 12 companies with ties to the rogue regime in tehran. the u.s. navy is also placing the uss cole off of the coast of yemen due to concerns over i ran supporting rebels in that country. president trump also took to twitter, warning to iran. "iran is playing with fire, they do not appreciate how kind obama was to them.
not me." also tonight, francis on edge after an attempted terrorist attack at a shopping mall in paris. and according to authorities, a machete wielding man shouting allah ackbar. president trump reacted by tweeting out "a new radical islamic terrorist has just attacked a museum in paris. tourists are locked down and france is on edge yet again. get smart, usa." and unlike his predecessor president barack obama, president trump is making it very clear that he's not going to tolerate iranian aggression. you will be a lot more tougher when it comes to fighting and defeating radical islam. the days of all talk, no action is over. the time for action is here. joining us now with reaction, the deputy assistant toer president trump, dr. sebastian gorka.
it started with general flynn saying iran is on notice. and that was followed, of course, by iran -- a little bit of saber rattling on their part. now sanctions are being put on their plates. beyond these sections, what am i taking out of donald trump's tweets tonight? >> i think you've interpreted it exactly right, sean. this is a new dawn. a new age for america and its relations with people who threaten regimes threaten us, our partners or breach our stability. the persian people are in amazing people. with a civilization that is thousands of years old. we have a regime in tehran that is destabilizing from yemen to iraq all through the world with its financing of terrorism, with its intimidation of our naval vessels, partners of the region and their naval vessels, the
funding of proxies. this must end. weus are drawing a very bright line in the sand to send a message that it has to stop, sean. >> sean: i can tell you, knowing donald trump as well as i do, i would take his word seriously. numberat two, there have been a new alliance that was created. he's talked to general al-sisi of jordan, i know the relationship donald trump did with him with israel has been repaired. and from what i understand, there is no love lost between the iranians and thed, saudi's. could you see such a coalition, america, israel, the saudi's, jordan's, the jordanians and egyptians leading up to take out these sites. if you are an iranian mullah, is that our possibility? >> look, we in the administration is not going to
tip our hand. we aren't going to do with the clinton administration did, the obama administration did and give away game plan. but you're absolutely right, sean. look at what we have done in the last 14 days. we are starting to rebuild all those relationships in the region that are crucial, the ones that were almost destroyed in the last eight years. whether it's with jordan, whether it's with egypt, whether it's with our closest ally israel, we are rebuildingg all those bridges that were almost burned to the ground under the obama administration because it is so important that our friends understand we are they are friends and that our enemies and adversaries no who the president is and that is not barack obama. >> sean: based on the sanctions, based on the tweet by the president, based on the usss cole being positioned off thede coast of yemen, if you are the
iranian mullahs, what are they thinking tonight? are they so arrogant and thinking there is a new sheriff in town? >> i pray to the good lord that the power center of this theocratic dictatorship understands that they cannot go on with business as usual. donald trump is a man of his word. i can guarantee you that they will start to look at things a little bit differently and understand this is not like the syrian redlines. remember the syrian red lines under the administration? no. this is a very, very different situation. hopefully they will start to realize that it is not in their interest to act in the provocative way. >> sean: i think we have to ask a very important question. if the iranian mullahs were ever to get nuclear weapons, weapons
of masss destruction, when you couple a squared, b squared equals c squared, radical arabian mullahs dedicated to the destruction of the free world and the advancement of a caliphate coupled with new nuclear weapons, seems to be a prescription for a nuclear holocaust. is that something the world must truthfully face and acknowledged before that day ever comes? >> yes. your calculation as a very simple one. let's look at the components there. we have a regime that believes -- at least part of it, apocalyptic ideas, occultation of the hidden imam. they think they are building a caliphate in the end times, and they wish toth acquire weapons f mass the suction and will not be deterred like the soviet union. this is in a bunch of rational actors like brezhnev. the people may actually think it's a good idea to initiate the
apocalypse that's why acquisition is of nuclear weaps is bad. >> sean: i want to be very clear. especially after 58,000 lives were lost in vietnam and the war becomes politicized, we have to ask why did these men fight, bleed, and died? same thing with iraq and afghanistan, 5,000 dead, many more lost their lives and were severely injured, and that it becomes politicized and we lose the citiesol they won, falluja,- my question to you is it possible to remove as those sites and the threat of them getting nuclear weapons without putting boots on the ground, because i don'tro think any american, me included, want that to happen. >> i'm not going to comment to regard what is and what is impossible. again, that would be tipping os our hand. actions like those have been taken in the past. if you look at iraq, if you look at otherer nations, if you lookt what the israelis have done.
and the president is clear on this. president trump is clear. we are not interested in invading countries. that is not what we do as a nation. this nation was born in resistant to imperial attitudes. >> sean: let me ask this, dr. gorka. i think this is very fundamental and very important. the iraq case. there was worldwide combination of israel and it was only years later you will realize it was the right thing to do. it was almost not reported what they did in syria. but the iranians, they are evil, they are not stupid. they have buried these nuclear facilities way down deep in the ground and all around the country. and we are talking about a lot of ground to cover here. i've got to imagine that it is a difficult, challenging military operation. i will give you the last word. >> it may be challenging but remember it's the greatest nation on god's earth and we have the best military and the
best intelligence agencies out there. look at the obama abomination, and if you don't necessarily have to use military tools. i will just leave it at that. >> sean: all right, dr. gorka. our thoughts and prayers with a the military guys. i would say the iranians are very foolish if they are going to test this president. it will not end well from them. coming up, we are broadcasting tonight. we are in houston, texas, the home of super bowl li. tonight jim gray joins us with his predictions. along with fs1 cris carter, tim tebow, tiki barker and joe namath. and also, we'll go to all of that and also robert kraft, owner of the patriots. but first, tonight. >> [bleep]. [bleep]. [bleep]. [bleep]. >> sean: more left wing lunatics, agitators, causing chaos out of nyu in new york city last night. we will play you the tape.
that and more. hello, houston. how are we doing? as we continue from houston. no matter how the markets change... at t. rowe price... our disciplined approach remains. global markets may be uncertain... but you can feel confident in our investment experience around the world. call us or your advisor... t. rowe price. invest with confidence.

[ girl screaming ] [ laughter ] >> live from america's news had workers, i'm jackie ibanez in new york. the white house says the justice department will file for an emergency stay of a federal judge's order, temporarily blocking the president's travel ban. that order bans immigration from seven predominately muslim countries. the band prompted nationwide protest. comments by defense secretary jim matos raising concern in beijing sharpley of china's moves in the south china sea, but he still
says he doesn't see the need of any major military moves right now. >> certainly, our military stands should be one that reinforces our diplomats in this regard. but there is no need at this time for military new bears or something like that that would solve something that is best solved by the diplomats. >> i'm jackie ibanez, now back to "hannity" ." >> sean:ac welcome back to "hannity." we are in houston, texas, is side of super bowl li. liberal agitators are at it again. they tried to shut down a conservative speaker last nightt at nyu in new york city. >> kill yourself, you nazi dye,, ! [bleep]. >> [bleep]. [bleep]. [bleep]. [bleep].
>> we are out here in order to let nyu, nypd and new york city know that they cannot sit back, and let nazis have a platform. in order to organize, mobilize for our extermination. >> sean: of course, this comes after the near riot we saw at uc berkeley.e protesters forcing the campus to cancel as speech -- cancel a speech by the, breitbart editor milo yiannopoulos, by smashing windows, throwing molotov cocktails at the police and even setting part of the cave is on fire. trump tweeted... -- and each from fans here just checking. who did you vote for? just checking.
joining us now from campusreform.org, troy warden and lisa boothe. i thought liberals were all about freedom of speech. i thought uc berkeley was the home of the free speech movement. isn't that where it all started in '64 and '65? >> thank you for having me on, sean. w i just want to say yes, we call ourselves the home of the free speech movement but wednesday night, absolutely contradicted that. we just wanted to exercise ouray right and wanted milo yiannopoulos to speak. and we couldn't do that because of outside groups and agitators aided and abetted by students used fireworks, firecrackers, what have you and literally these things were exploded against the building. i was inside and i detailed my terrible experience is on campusreform.com. and i felt like a war zone. it felt like a third world country. and i'm just ashamed. i don't think we are in a civil society anymore because the left is way too intolerant. >> sean: i thought liberal ones were supposed to be
tolerant. they love everybody. they always argue conservatives are racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, islamic phobic. i can't even remember all the phobias i'm supposed to have. none of this is true but it's really them that are intolerant, true or false? >> 100 present, sean. there is no intolerant on the web. look, sean, i think it's important in the terms in which we describe these riots. we need to be careful not sayinn anything in regards to protesting. protesting, the exercising of the first amendment, i think we can all agree upon. these individuals are criminals, dogs, they should be condemned in the strongest terms. i think the media and especially the main stream media should be careful of not condoning or enabling this behavior by saying that it's protesting or saying that somehow it's being covered by the first amendment because it's absolutely not.
>> sean: troy, i look at all the issues. i don't know a conservative i know -- not one that is racist. the i don't know any conservative that doesn't make a distinction between radical islam and those that are practicing a religion. they make a distinction. i don't know anybody that givess a flying rip about anybody's sex life. neoconservative that i know cares. this is a false caricature, but i do see intolerance here and molotov cocktails there, and people being beaten in other instances. it's been topsy-turvy as far as national defense, has in it? >> it's been absolutely crazy, sean. i know gavin mcinnes, i've seen him on your show. the man is not a white supremacist or a. and the same goes for milo yiannopoulos. and the problem is students at
nyu and uc berkeley aren't being taught by their professors to distinguish between performance and fax. i want my peers to protest, short, and i want them to address these facts and statistics, -- i want them to engage in a rational debate, nou to shut us down and use violence to silent us. i don't think berkeley is the home of the free speech movement anymore. >> sean: last word. lisa? >> i do not think the left wants to have a debate. that's why they always result in demagoguery. look, sean, we didn't see this or violence atr the march for life or tea party rallies. and they say that some supporters are the ones that are supposed to be that the florals and you see this action, look at the sides, the actions, the "women's w march" because it excluded groups of women, it was just a pro-choice march. look at the way that a lot of these protesters conducted
themselves. it's just absolutely ridiculous, they don't want any sort of constructive conversation, they just want demagoguery. >> sean: thank you for being with us. we are in houston, the sight of super bowl li. we are in houston ahead of the big game. along with nfl hall of famer and fs1 analyst chris carter. tim tebow, joan amos is here. plus the owner of the new england patriots robert kraft is here. treat goodness, hold on to your tiara kind of day. get 24/7 digestive support, with align. the #1 doctor recommended probiotic brand. now in kids chewables.

president trump earlier today, at the white house, while many americans are into politics. nfl fans across the country aren gearing up for the highly anticipated matchup between the atlanta falcons and the new england patriots. it is all happening someday, >> it's all happening sunday, it's airing on fox. you don't want to miss it. joining us now, a preview of the super bowl. a sportscaster fox news contributor and friend, jimsu gray.s fs1 nfl analyst, cris carter. we will never talk politics again, will we? >> no, i will come see you. absolutely. >> sean: will do it on air? absolutely. i'm coming to your spot. >> sean: when you say come to my spot, you mean take my job? >> no, absolutely not. i couldn't do that. >> sean: i think you could. >> i'm a member of the fox family. >> sean: i know you are. let's analyze this game. how many here think new england is going to win? how many think that atlanta is
going toto win? let's break it down. >> go ahead. >> sean: this is the seventh time that tom brady and the patriots are in the super bowl. there is only collectively five guysys total on the atlanta falcons. so if experience means anything, and it's a one-off game, but brady has more experience than the entire falkenstein. that plays in the something.ou mike picked up for merced, our former partner in nbc -- >> sean: he's wonderful. hyperventilated and could not breathe the first 400 and a half in the first super bowl. how will that hit in the falcons? you played in big games and this is a much different thing than a big game. >> sean: let's talk about your perspective because you had that experience. the big game. >> it's a big game. it's bigger than any game i played in. 16 years in the league i've never made it to the super bowl but had a lot of coaches and players that played in it.
the beginning of the game, there is a tremendous amount of time between the warm up in the time the game starts. if you look at new england and their elastic super bowls, they had not scored a point in the firstve quarter. coming into the game, atlanta scored 30 points and six straight games. it's going to be very, very important early in the game to be able to see if shanahan can get them information and get them some type of points per new england, typically they start off very, very slow when these games. people say, oh, get off to a fast start. in this game, it's very, very important. >> sean: to jim's point, i want you to respond to this. this is brady's seven super bowl. he's got four gold rings. the only team to beat him twice for the giants. beat that experience of him and bella check being together 17 years. >> it's tough to beat that, especially young players. atlanta has the average age of 27.7, one of the older teens in the league. but they are four rookies contributed to their defense.
they have youth, but they have a lot of team speed. tom brady gave us an insight to his life. he gave us a personal shot that he is human. he talked about his mother and her health. he also said that his mother hadn't seen him play this year. we alld have mothers, we know hw special our mother is. so jim, can you imagine the pressure that tom brady, suspended in the beginning of the season, it's been an epic type year, and that this game is the only game this season his mom's going to be at? he has the ability to be a five time super bowl champion, no one has everou done that as a quarterback. charles hanley has five rings, but he was a defensive end. i believe there is more pressure on brady because of what he wants to do -- >> sean: is there more pressure or he does he have something to prove to the country this year. >> tom comes on with us every monday night. >> sean: i never got invited on the show. >> a little bit of insight, i don't think he feels pressure. i don't even think he thinks about it. he dedicates his life to getting better at football every day, from every ounce of water that
he intakes to avocado ice cream, running wind sprints, to everything that he does. it's family, football, and winning are all that matters to him. this is now an opportunity for him to separate himself. it's redemption because he and his reputation were dragged through the mud by the national football league over absolutely nothing. >> sean: i agree. >> now he can put that not only behind him but to rest. they could've played with pillows in that game. don't think for one minute that this guy does not have this, even though as calm and classy as he is is not in the back of the way. >> sean: let me use this example. you put the camera in front of them, doesn't matter how articulate they are they are scared to death. you go on tv they are doing radio and tv, do you think about it? is it like that for the real pros in the nfl? or thinking about the crowd, they learn to turn that off. >> he's got a lot of talent but he's got a lot of
self-discipline. he has the ability in this game to be able to focus like no player that we've seen. he could be 15 years between super bowl wins. after this, not only will we be talking about tom brady as the greatest quarterback, but you will have to start talking about tom brady being the greatest nfl player we've seen? >> sean: he has to be. >> because of his longevity and success. >> sean: look >> look. this is his 16th year. one year he's out for a knee injury. he's really eligible for 15. now he's playing in his seventh super bowl. that's almost 50% of the time. look at it one other way, they played 5251 of these things. he's played in seven, that's 50%.se the first 12, wasn't even alive. those numbers don't lie. spirit what is it about robert kraft in the nfl like nick >> consistency and continuity. >> sean: what are they doing?
>> they know each other. tom brady is great, okay? him being great makes it easier for bella bella spell belichick. he grew in position, and bill belichick is the best coach ever for tom brady and bob kraft has done them and they can send job >> sean: so if it's college, it's nick saban, it's belichick in -- >> if you have a good system, you put talented people -- part of it is the talent. >> sean: that so arrogant, but i don't care. >> sometimes you have to have a little arrogance, a little ego. >> sean: i want to be humble. i'm a christian. i want to be humble. >> we can work on that. i believe in systems. both of them have good systems.
but also, they look for certain players who will sacrifice for the overall team good. the reason why the pictures are very, very successful. >> sean: i know we are a lot of focus on brady, but that ryan has had a phenomenal year. he's done soo well with the falcons, but i wonder if we are paying too much attention to the offense. the new england defense, matt ryan is going to face the toughest defense he's faced all year when the number one offense has played the number one defense 6 out of 7 times in the super bowl, the number one defense has won. 6 out of 7. >> okay. >> sean: what about 7 out of 8? >> we will see what happens. atlanta is a great team. they could won this game. they are a small underdog, but they can score so many points. anybody who tells you that they know, sean, they don't know. if they know that much, we should go out to your chat and become very lucky people. nobody knows.
>> mattie is underrated as a quarterback. in the first nine years, he holds the record for most yards. i always thought matty ice was a good quarterback. he's a great competitor, he's a student of the game, they have changed at the system to make it more simple, less verbiage, and they are over luteinizing utilizing it. if they can throw the ball to their v tight ends, that's the best match up that they have. >> sean: a prediction, can they pull that off? >> i think it's going to be a more interesting game than people think. i do think new england is going to win back g the game. my prediction is new england patriots 26, atlanta falcons 24. >> 31-28, new england. >> sean: i picked them by three, too. you guys have been unbelievable. where are you going to be during the game? we will have president trump on.
>> isn't he's coming in, so hee on the radio on the telephone. >> sean: he likes to call the morning shows in the morning, he likes to get up. it's an honor to have you. >> i'm coming to new york to beat up on you! >> sean: i've got my brown belt this year. coming up next tonight, right here on "hannity." >> it means a lot to be playing this game for sure. this is what we've worked so hard on for so long. to give yourself the opportunity. >> i want to win it because i want to win. our team has put a lot into it. we want them to show for it. >> sean: tom brady, matt ryan, ready to face off in another super bowl. up next, tiki barber, tim tebow, joe namath, sunday's big game and later, the patriots owner robert kraft is here. we will ask him about his special relationship with donald trump and about sunday's showdown as "hannity" continues. where are we?

sunday. joining us now with reaction, former nfl running back tiki barber. former nfl quarterback, tim tebow. and former super bowl champion hall of famer joe namath. give it up! all right, tiki. they love you, joe. you've got some fans. when you won the super bowl, you made a prediction you were going to win and everyone -- >> called it! [laughter] we had the best team. >> sean: i agree. if only the jets could get a quarterback, we would be in great shape. >> man, i don't want to go there right now. but they have great fans. >> sean: they do. it's great to see you. i can't believe -- i'm so happy, seriously. you are such a competitive, hard-working fighter. now you are going into baseball and my friends in the mets organization said they were
doing really well. >> i love it every day. living a dream out every single day. can't wait for spring training that start in two and a half weeks. >> sean: by the way. tiki has a tv show. he's never invited me. >> i see him in the morning, i see him in the evening. are you getting up at 6:00? >> sean: is there anything more fun in this moment in american sports, being at the super bowls? it never gets old, right? >> the more fun is being there, wanting it. these are the best weeks, of course. i believe along with the derby or the sweet 16 -- >> sean: you have seen the growth of the nfl, the importance of the super bowl in this country. pretty huge.e. >> yeah, it is huge. that's the one negative thing i think about these two teams. atlanta hasn't spent a halftime like they are going to spend off the field. that's the only edge i'm giving to new england. >> sean:e that's the only edge? >> the only edge. >> sean: tom brady, bill belichick, 17 years together.
>> again, whichever team beats themselves will lose. and atlanta can win the game. >> sean: i beat myself all the time. [laughter] i will throw the football at you, all right? >> let's see if we can complete this one. >> sean: you had an amazing moment with the broncos. i will never forget that day. you go into overtime. you win the game. that was probably the best moment in the nfl? >> a special moment for sure. >> sean: the heisman trophy wasn't bad, either? >> that felt pretty good as wel well. >> sean: what are these guys feeling? they are seeing all the hype, they see all the fans -- >> it's the patriot way, right? they are not caught up in the media, what people are saying. that's what makes new england different. because their culture is such a culturee on to your job, don't worry about people are saying, don't worry about the outside noise. i was there.
they literally block it off and it's led by great leadership. guys like tom brady, matt slate slater, all these guys. >> sean: tim, the next question is that why they are here so often? >> there are a couple of reasons they are here so often. >> sean: is a joke. he is a long-suffering jets fan. by the way -- so brady, this is his seventh opportunity. he was stopped twice by one team, the new york giants. >> don't blame me, pat's fans, i wasn't there at the time. thewe giants have to answer. >> the issue in this game is that dan quinn knows how to play against them. we forget that super bowl ii years ago? they had them down by ten points with 7:00 to the fourth quarter. but you can't stop tom brady forever. >> sean: i don't know why this year, all the sports writers, they are the worst human beings on earth. sports writers are thehe worse.
they are so rough on tom because he supported donald trump, right? i'm like, so what? i thought deflategate was a bunch of bull. come on! they won by 40 points. but the thing is -- am i right? they want to hate brady. number one, he's good. number two, he wins. number three, he's got a good looking wife. you know all about that! >> is a lot for people to handle. >> sean: if you are pretty close second -- >> come on. >> sean: why are the patriots -- 25% of the country wants -- >> they are the king of the mountain top. we've been playing it since they are nine years old. >> it's like alabama and clemson, few people rooting for alabama because they'd seen the same people over and over. >> sean: is bill belichick and nick sabin pretty equal?
>> they want alabama... >> first of all, alabama doesn't recruit. they select. that's a different level of territory right now. >> sean: when you went to florida, that alabama court you? >> yeah, i chose florida over alabama. we are talking about the last 5-6 years. that culture is extremely similar. >> belichick, saban, meyer when you went to florida, you've got the guy leading the show. it starts with them and they put it together. >> sean: do you want me to silence three incredible people? who would you vote for? i'm only kidding. [laughter] listen, i'm fans of all you guys. you've all become my friends. it's an honor to have you on the show. really, it is. tiki, love you, man. thank you very much. coming up next, we are live in houston. "hannity" continues. >> he came to the funeral with melania, he visited me. he visited me at my home
