10:01 pm
destroy presidents donald trump. sitting back and doing nothing is no longer an option. a call to arms, our opening monologue. we have been explaining to you, the american people it is now happening in our nation's capital, this massive efforts to utterly destroy president trump and throw him out of office. h it is a plot to subvert the will of you, the american people and undermined the very foundation of this republic. it is unlike anything we have seen before in american history. earlier today, at a news conference, president trump addressed these unprecedented attacks, watch. >> president trump: i respect the move for the entire thing has been a witch hunt, there wa, no collusion between myself and my campaign, but i can always speak for myself and the russians, zero. i think it divides the country. i think we have a very divided country because of that and many other things. >> sean: months of coverage, zero evidence, the president is right. let's look at all these obama administration scandals, no
10:02 pm
special benghazi, the irs targeting conservative spirit of the general services administration, their spending scandal. fast and furious, hillary clinton's private email server, we know felonies were committed there. the pay to play scheme, uranium going to vladimir putin in russia. bo bergdahl, the prisoner swap, the va scandal, loretta lynch, bill clinton on the tarmac, that meeting. o surveillance rules changes, james rosen and j unaccompanied minors entering the u.s., hurricane sandy phones. contracts. the threat against president trump is real, it isin metastasizing into a clear and present danger. it's only going to get worse and we are learning tonight that the dnc is now pumping money into what is being called the resistance summer.
10:03 pm
it's the left's plan to attack and obstruct the president at every turn. it's time for you the american people, you irredeemable deplorable's that went out at once to the rallies and voted for him, it's time for you to stand up for what you wanted and what you voted for in november. as you heard me say, this was a choice election. the everything you have votedch for is under attack, you voted for the economy, you voted for millions of new jobs. you want people out of poverty, off of food stamps and back in the labor force. you wanted to lower taxes, you wanted tax reform. you voted to repeal and replace obamacare, that process is now underway. you voted for a much stronger military, for a president who can say the words radical islamic terrorism and defeating isis. you voted for energy independence. you voted for more control of education to be sent back to the states. you voted to cut government regulations and jobs.
10:04 pm
most importantly, you voted to drain the swamp and up and the power structure in washington, d.c., that has been failing you and the american people for decades. these forces that are working to unseat president trump, they don't care about fixing the gigantic mess that president obama left behind after eight years of incompetence and failure. they don't care because they are inside this corrupt washington cabal, they are the swamp. they prosper, americans suffer, that's why these groups, they don't care about the numbers that we showed you from the obama administration from a back during campaign, night after night. the lowest labor participation rate since the 70s.du of almost 95 million americans out of the labor force. the worst recovery since the 1940s, lowest home ownership rate in 51 years, 11 million more americans on food stamps after obama, 8 million more in poverty, 43 million in total, one in five american families
10:05 pm
without anybody in the workforce. one in six american men prime working years 18 at 2:30 for incarcerating or living at home with mommy and accumulate more debt than any other president behind, $9 trillion in debt is irresponsible and unpatriotic. these forces they want to prevent the president fromll fixing the mess and improving your there are five specific forces working to take down thehe president, let me explain in order in terms of the dangers they represent. the most dangerous, the deep state. former fbi director james comey obviously disgruntled, fired ex-employee, showing a vendetta against the president. i guess he's angling for his multimillion dollar book deal, r miniseries, primetime
10:06 pm
interviews, a movie, and probably wants to work for msnbc. we've seen the deep state d working around the clock, undermining, sabotaging and licking which hurts in their case they want to destroy the president. the deep state must be purged, we've got to get rid of the t people that are now the biggest threat to this republic and the free election of donald trump. number two, the destroy trump media at the second worst in this alliance if you will. the purveyors of the fake news and a tinfoil hat conspiracy theories with no evidence, these liars were absolutely pushing one manufactured scandal after another hoping one of their constant smears against the present sticks and will lead to his downfall. then of course you have the democrats, they've been unhinged since november 9th.ow they've been attacking and obstructing the president at every turn because they can't accept the election results of you, the american people.. you can always count on those
10:07 pm
very same establishment republicans, the ones that were afraid they may be accused of shutting on the government. the people that never supported president trump even though they're in the same party, never supported his agenda. now they are dragging their feet to implement what you voted for. look at senator john mccain, this is a disgrace. he's saying this witch hunt is reaching a point where it's watergate in terms of its size and scale, no senator, it's not. you should know better. then you have the never-trumpers the least impactful, groups like national review the weekly standard. they never thought or want to trump win, they would've wanted elite pick the next supreme courts or court justice. this is now about overwriting the election, the election results, the will of the american people. this combined is undermining the democratic process, not only trying to delegitimize the
10:08 pm
president but try to effectively stop him from doing what he promised to do. why are they doing it? own selfish reasons. b they want to cling to power, isn't always about power in washington? president trump is the biggest existential threats to the way things are working there. it's really the swamp versus the people and the swamp is fighting hard. here's my question for all of you tonight, the american people, you irredeemable deplorable's who cling to your god, guns, bibles, and religion. are you good to help the president elected? as hard as you fought during the election, if you want those changes that you voted for that you went out and fought for, you better fight harder now with the country will deteriorate even further. and america's precipitous decline will not stop. here with reaction, fox news contributor, herman cain, am i wrong, paranoid, or are these real threats to the president?
10:09 pm
and did the american people who voted for trump need to now rally? >> you did that monologue better than i could have done, that's quite a compliment. i absolutely agree with you andi i couldn't have done it better, you were absolute spot on. let me give my own personal tribute to roger ailes. you are absolutely right, he change the direction of so many people, and concluding my trajectory of my participation with fox. sum up what you said and a lot of others have said about roger ailes. he had an ear, and eye, and a heart for people and talents, that's what made him so special. getting back to your monologue about the attacks on trump. all i heard today on my radio show was the deplorable's are going to fight back. many of them are starting by
10:10 pm
calling the presidential comments line, it's 202-456-1111. the liberal media doesn't have his back, we know that. the democrats don't have his back, we know that. even some republicans don't have his back. the american people have his back, to the american people, you need to call 202-456-1111 and let the president know that
10:11 pm
we have his back. we are fighting back. >> sean: the two that i think it seemed be the most dangerous to the president accomplishing his agenda, america is in a precipitous decline, he's got to get his economic plan he's got to get rid of these regular agencies got to build the wall. there's so much on his -- education, energy independenceli come all the things he wants to do. repatriation lowered, manufacturing center was built. if he has to deal with a deep and a corrupt media that lies in how did they get away with these conspiracy theories? conspiracy tv is the most interesting thing to watch these days, all built on a house of cards and lies. >> sean: they are playing upon and depended upon the liberals and the democrats arethey're bae stupidity of the american people. they do have a lot of people who are going to be gullible and follow that narrative. that represents approximately 50% of the american people, those people who elected donald trump represent the other 50% plus a few. the 50% plus a few are going to have to let trump know that we have his back. that's why the democrats and the liberals get away with that
10:12 pm
because liberal media as their accomplices help them to get the message across to people who really don't understand the facts. >> sean: you would have delivered it better because i'm not the guy that does 999, the most memorable political line in the history of politicking. thank you. coming up on this busy, breaking news night, the president is now fighting back against these forces who are trying to take them down, lou dobbs, cory lewandowski are here next, also tonight. >> he no longer has control instead of being the hunter, he becomes the hunted. >> sean: disgraced former anchor dan rather takes another shot at the president, did he just mean that? the national guard dan rather? that's coming up, charlie hurt will join us and once more, straight ahead at safelite, we stand behind our work...
10:13 pm
because the ones you love, sit behind it. (parents whisper jingle) safelite repair, safelite replace. whoa,i just had to push one button to join. it's like i'm in the office with you, even though i'm here. it's almost like the virtual reality of business communications. no, it's reality. intuitive one touch video conferencing is a reality. and now it's included at no additional cost with vonage business. call now and see why 3,000 companies a month are switching to vonage. business grade. people friendly.

10:17 pm
we've made tremendous progress in the last hundred some days, tremendous progress. >> sean: that wasdo the president in a press conference with the president of columbia detailing some of the successes, you won't hear that on the mainstream media. but as i mentioned in the opening monologue tonight, there are five significant forces that are trying to defeat this president and take them down. the destroyed trump propaganda media, the second worst. democrats unhinged, their next establishment republicans weak, their next. then the never trumpers. cory lewandowski from the truck fox business network, lou dobbs, i've never seen anything like this. if the most dangerous to me is the deep state because i've never seen leaks like this, i've never seen unmasking like this especially in the political
10:18 pm
years come up at 6% and stomach from years prior. >> i think that's largelyom correct. i think the enabling rhinos, the establishment republicans who are enabling the deep state and even the left represent a greater danger to the president. it's a danger he is recognizing, it's a hopeful sign of better things to come for the president. he has around him people who are not taking every pain, every effort, to defend them and attacked the presidents.ef you and i discussed the communications department is led by people who seem like they have never been in the business before.
10:19 pm
>> sean: i would throw an even emphasis on a volunteer basis, to get a real control with the president deserves. this is not to dismiss anybody, i know people working hard, a lot of people are gulping water. these attacks are consuming 80% of people stay. mike huckabee, newt gingrich, helping, organizing, getting the agenda moving. >> they've been with him from the beginning, they been doing a lot. >> sean: even more involved. >> the idea that this president has a communications department that is jumping at opportunities to attack the left, to attack the deep state and to defend and promulgate this president's agenda just drives me nuts. >> sean: you said it's war, you and i get nuts over the same things. cory, do you like the idea somehow -- 80% of the time seems to be distraction, attacks, reaction, attack, attack, attack, guys like mike, newt gingrich, reorganizing and do the fighting, let people who govern actually do their job? >> i think it's super important
10:20 pm
those individuals who supported this candidate's trump now president trump are out in public talking about what's really going on. what we've seen, and no one's want to talk about this. if you look at his numbers in the states of ohio and pennsylvania, his numbers are up amongst republicans who voted for him last cycle. his numbers are higher by eight points in ohio, his approval rating amongst republicans isyc 80% of the state of pennsylvania. what that tells you is you have to fight back.hi donald trump was elected becaust he wants to change washington. he pushes back against this false narrative that there's not anything getting done in washington. in the first 120 days, he's been more successful than most in ministrations have done in four years. >> sean: me and lou dobbs are the only two people on this planet who actually report what he's actually done. let me throw this to you. look at the special counsel
10:21 pm
appointed to preach i'm going to put up on the side of the screen, i'll put it up earlier. zero special counsel for obama and hillary got a pass. >> absolutely, less than four months into the trump administrations presidency, this is insane. where is the evidence of a crime? let's start there. there is no evidence of a crime, yet we've got a special counsel. >> sean: hours of tv, will, give you the last word. >> he's exactly right, there is no evidence of anything wrongdoing, notice of collision, it's a political witch it's not necessary, the republicans are weak on this thing, they should have heldhe tough, they should have been stronger. >> sean: good you both. he's being very shy and timid as usual, when we come back on this busy, breaking news night tonight on hannity. >> he no longer has control, instead of being the hunter, he becomes the hunted.
10:22 pm
>> sean: the hunted really mr. national guard, he's popping back in the spotlight, mr. national guard himself. more low lights in tonight's news segment, new questions over the mysterious death over dnc staffer, former fox news chairman, dies at age 77, i would not be in this chair if it were not for him as he forever changed my life, that's coming up.77 peed direct-shift transmission. a meticulously crafted interior. all of these are feats of engineering. combining them with near-perfect weight distribution... a feat of amazing. experience the first-ever 471-horsepower lexus lc 500

>> thank god for the american press, "the new york times," "washington post" have done a terrific job. up until the day, presentng donald trump has had the ability to control almost every news cycle. from this day forward, he no longer has control. instead of being the hunter, he becomes the hunted. >> sean: becomes the hunted, has he forgotten the incompetent, irresponsible, reckless reporting he did for cbs news? is that what president hunting looks like to you? d,s of course, rather wasn't the only member of the propaganda press who was spewing anti-trump hatreds. take a look at some of the recent low lights. >> you were to remarkable column in the times today calling for republicans to use the 25th amendment of the constitution to remove him from office. >> he might only have left in 13

months, that's how long it took a special prosecutor to get rid of nixon. >> one he's asking for loyalty he's trying to change the character of the american government. hitler in 1934 began to demand firing him by sending over a private security detail, that's what happens in germany as well. the private security deal becomes the ss and they become more important than the police. >> sean: joining us now for the american conservative union, german matthew schlapp. really? the hunted? in our hunting the president? and this coming from the disgraced, radical ideologue dan rather? we are hunting the president. >> this is what the american people know, the american people have been watching theri opposition media, they've had a liberal bent for decades now, they have decided that donald trump is not a legitimate president. that it's their job to take himo out and it colors all the
10:30 pm
reporting. all it does is make the american people into the american voter realize they have to turn to other places to get their facts. i think in a very strange way it strengthens donald trump politically because he's the one taking on the swamp, he's takina on the opposition press and is taking on all of these institutions that are supposedly have our best interests atll heart. >> sean: i don't even know what to say about hunted. thanks for being honest, you disgraced -- what happened in this case, the whole national guard a story all about? wow, hunted. >> i think he got his meds a little off today, he skips them or didn't -- maybe had too many of them, i have no idea. these people, these clowns have been calling donald trump stalin and hitler from the beginning. there also the same people who told us he would never win, he
10:31 pm
could never win a general election, they've been wrong about absolutely everything. the thing i find so disturbing as matt pointed out, these people are doing everything they can, they are hurting america. they're doing everything they can to undermine on election. his victory last november is noe just some sort of one-off fluke. it follows a decade of losses the democrats faced because of their policies, because of obama's policies. the idea that the media now wants to overturn the whole thing, reject the whole thing because they don't like this guy, it shows absolute disdain for the american people and disregard for free politics. >> sean: you know, matt, it's so bad now. but conspiracy theory, hating trump is revitalized bill maher and stephen colbert's career. a left-wing cable channel, all
10:32 pm
the conspiracy theorists who want to destroy trump, they are excited because they think this impeachment thing is going to happen. d i've got to roll, thank you both for being with us. still so many questions, this is getting more mysterious by the day surrounded the murder of dnc staffer's seth rich. it wasn't a robbery, was he talking to wikileaks? will investigate, if he did, does this blow the russian collusion narrative out of the water? jay sekulow will join us. the world has lost the media and political giant, the founder of the fox news fox news channel roger ailes has died at the age of 77. m without him, i would not be on your tv set right now, later in the program, i'll share with you what roger meant to me ou any wo? ou any wo? no sir, no sir, some nincompoop stole all my wool sweaters, smart tv and gaming system.

>> sean: welcome back to "hannity," questions continued to swirl around mysterious murder of dnc staffer seth rich. there was suspicion that he may have been the source of the dnc emails that were leaked to wikileaks. not the russians as the left claims. in the early morning hours of july 10th while walking to his washington, d.c., home, he was shot in the back and left for dead. police claimant was an attempted robbery gone wrong but the assailants did not take anythinn from seth rich including his phone, wallet, watch, necklace. suspiciously 12 days after he
10:37 pm
died, wikileaks published the leaked emails from the dnc. also following his death,, wikileaks offered a $20,000 reward for information leading to the conviction of the person or persons responsible for this murder. then in august of 2016 during that interview on dutch tv, julian assange of wikileaks implies pretty strongly that seth rich may have been a wikileaks source, watch this. >> whistleblowers go through significant effort and certificate risk. the 27-year-old works for the dnc was shot in the back, murdered just two weeks ago for unknown reasons as he was walking on the street in washington. >> that was just a robbery come i believe, wasn't it? >> there's no findings. >> what are you suggesting? >> i'm suggesting that our sources to take risks they become concerned to see things
10:38 pm
occurring like that. >> was he one of your sources?be >> we don't talk about our sources. >> then why make a suggestion about some guy shot in the street in washington. >> it's because we have to talk about how high the stakes are in the united states. >> sean: if he was the source for the dnc email leaks, it would confirm russia was not involved. in january, asked julian about the emails, they've not gotten one fact wrong that they havesk published. here's what he had to say. >> sean: did russia give you this information or anyoneed associated with russia? >> our source is not a party, the answer for our interactions is no. >> sean: you did not get this information, can you tell the
10:39 pm
american people 1000% you do not get it from russia or anybody associate with russia? >> we have said repeatedly over the last few months that our source is not the russian government and it does not a state party. >> sean: i asked julian assange if they gave them to wikileaks, watch this. there is one report of the daily mail that suggested somebody you were friendly with was head of the documents at american university in a wooded area by a disgruntled democrat who felt that -- betrayed because the revelations showed that of bernie sanders had to been betrayed. they didn't like the corruption of the clinton foundation, can
10:40 pm
you confirm or deny that, is that story true? t >> statement from craig murray. a friend of mine,>> he's been he several times. wikileaks is a source protection organization. we are famous for never having. exposed one of our sources over ten years, that's why sources trust us and they come to us. i can't comment on other people's statements about our sources except to say what we have said, which is that our sources are not state parties. >> sean: it gets more mysterious by the minutes. if it was true, we don't know yet, if it was true that seth rich gave wikileaks the dnc emails, wouldn't that blow the russian collusion narrative that the media has been pushing out of the water? here with reaction is jay, sekulow. i look at this and with all that we heard with no evidence, none, admiral rogers and james
10:41 pm
clapper, the media runs with it. based on what he said with a dutch interview. saying that it could be seth rich, what is your take on what he said? >> he pointed out what would be obvious to a prosecutor or detective.e i've served in multiple capacities in government, i've represented das, i was a deputy state attorney general for cases. i'm familiar with this if you look at a normal situation like this a horrible, tragic situation it does not fit the classic definition of robbery because the deceased -- nothing was taken. that means it wasn't a robbery based on what we know but rather a murder. and there's a fundamental difference both to the criminality of that and to the way in which it would proceed for investigation.n.
10:42 pm
>> sean: and all the years you've been an attorney, does it make sense you shoot somebody and the whole narrative has been there investigating a robberyse but i didn't take the wallet, they did take the necklace, then take the phone and they didn't take the watch? to sets on the corroborate to you? because it doesn't sound like a robbery to me. >> it sounds like a murder one on-site premeditated murder, they targeted this individual and the unfortunate situation as it's been classified, the police are classifying it as a robbery. the detectives. i think it points to a bigger issue. that bigger issue is this. of course the public perception of this is it's just another horrible situation, a crime in the district of columbia. r there's a lot more to this i would suspect. you can't ignore the fact this was a dnc staffer. you can't ignore the fact that there was nothing taken for the individual's body, no wallet taken, no jewelry. >> sean: on the eve of the dncnc
10:43 pm
convention, debbie wasser schultz based on what was in those emails. deep down, you have to wonder if not him, or somebody was so disgruntled how they cheated to bernie sanders, how they conspired against him, how the fix was in. not necessarily him, will put them aside for a minutes. couldn't you see somebody the gross injustice this was outrageous and want to be exposed, told? >> this happens all the time in the political campaign, is not unusual. the media continued to harp on the russia source of the leak which julian assange denied unequivocally. that begs the question and unfortunate question, there's a dead 27-year-old in washington, d.c., who happened to be a dnc employee and julian
10:44 pm
assange is making statements that it could be this individual, he doesn't come out and say it. it sure doesn't look like a robbery, it looks like a murder. i haven't seen the files, there's one thing that undercuts -- i think this whole russian argument is subterfuge for reality. >> sean: white of the dnc let the fbi look at their computersg why would the fbi allow that? will continue to follow it. when we come back, the country today lost a force of nature up next, i'll share some words and thoughts about rogerer ailes, what he meant to be. will check in with geraldo rivera, ainsley earhardt, i would not be here tonight if it were not for him. ♪

>> sean: welcome back to "hannity," today, the world lost one of its great patriotic warriors.ea roger ailes at the age of 77 has died.ld his impact on american politics in the media is unmatched. he single-handedly changed the landscape of both and both for the better. there are few people in this world who will ever have such a profound impact like roger did. i wrote earlier today on twitter that enemies, like his politics, they should know this, right now, advantage roger because in the next life, he's plotting and planning on how to kick your ass there.

he was five steps ahead of his opponent, they play checkers in life, he was playing chess. the strategist that cannot be duplicated by anybody. on a personal note, i want to tell you something. i would not be here in front of this camera tonight in front of you if it were not for roger ailes. i say it all the time, i have no idea why he hired me back in i 1996, it was a huge risk on his part. i was a young radio host in atlanta, very little tv experience. to be honest, i don't know how he didn't fire me early on, i was that bad as early tapes humbled me every time i see them. i think it's because he's also saw something in me like he did in the fox news channel that he hired that they didn't see in themselves. he became like a second father to make him i lost my father in march of 1997 right after starting the fox news channel six months later. i am forever grateful for the
10:50 pm
opportunity, his humor, his wit, his energy, his raw instinct of intelligence. i want to say this tonight, our thoughts and prayers, roger ailes was a true american original. one of the deepest thinkers i ever met. he will be greatly missed, joining us now, fox news correspondent at large, words don't summarize how many people's lives he changed. i watch the news with you this morning. >> i knew eventually the state would come and he hired me ten years ago. i have the privilege of beingul able to in a weird way to announce it this morning on "fox & friends," he was a father figure to me. there was a lot of bad press about him, he was wonderful to me and he changed my life. i have a beautiful daughter and he supported me through that. i had some hard times in my life, he supported me through that.
10:51 pm
the first time i walked that office, i'm sitting with this legend. you know, item not sure if you're good to hire me but i want an opportunity to pick your brain. this might be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to sit down with someone who was so critical to our profession and this opportunity meet with me for just an hour. i was crying on the plane and flying into new york because this was my dream of. that man right there gave me my dream and my dreams have all come true. my little girl will go to college and i am saving money right now because of him. he put a roof over my head and gave me this amazing life in new york city. gave me a promotion when i was on maternity leave, who does that? reassured me my daughter would be taken care of and said your daughter is now part of the fox family.
10:52 pm
everywhere, we all are weeping over him, we are all hugging, it's been a veryryim somber day here because we love this man. you can hate the sin but you love the sinner. men are not perfect. we are not perfect but love is. >> sean: i know you do bible study, we've all sinned and fallen short. >> we have. that's why we need god, we're not perfect. many people think the channel has saved the country. >> sean: what if we didn't have a fox news channel? >> it would be heavily urban,an suburban point of view, a very hard left point of view presented to. what roger did was democratize the news business in a very, very big way. he was a great, great man.
10:53 pm
i laments what happened to him and less nine, ten months of his life, it was horrible to see. i bear a personal burden because there came a time after the revelations about roger last summer just before the a conventions, first we were all going to walk out and quit in solidarity with roger, and then we heard more allegations, there came a time when i said we have to believe the purported victims, we have to give them some space, and we have to give them some credibility. i read an article about it and i look back and lamented not that i said we should give victims of sexual harassment credibility but that i piled on an old friend. he gave me two jobs, he invented me in some ways. he stood by my family when i was in afghanistan and iraq, and i wanted to come back to knowing he would take care of them if
10:54 pm
anything happened to me. i was at his wedding with beth at city hall with rudy giuliani presiding. he was one of these creative forces of nature.e if he had passed a year ago a month before all of this started, he would be on mount rushmore. he was so vivid in his vision, and so loyal in his friendship, it's devastating. those who love him and it is tragic to go back to that point that's his obit --nd "the new york times" will lead. >> sean: he wouldn't care with "the new york times" thanks. there was a long term staff member here who had a bad car accident, he called him and said stay home, get well.ta full salary. if you need anything else, if you need medical help,
10:55 pm
nobody helped her in life, the makeup lady, she's crying right now. >> she said this is my dream job, he said i'll send you to the best makeup school in new york. now she's our makeup artist. >> where all your surrogate uncles, he's a strong kid, i talked to him. >> every time i would make with him he would talk to you, i think you are so close. he was so proud of you. >> sean: thank you both, really appreciate it. when we come back, a question of the day. my a1c wasn't were it needed to be. so i liked when my doctor told me that i may reach my blood sugar and a1c goals by activating what's within me with once-weekly trulicity.
10:56 pm
trulicity is not insulin. it helps activate my body to do what it's suppose to do, release its own insulin. i take it once a week, and it works 24/7. it comes in an easy-to-use pen and i may even lose a little weight. trulicity is a once-weekly injectable prescription medicine to improve blood sugar in adults with type 2 diabetes when used with diet and exercise. trulicity is not insulin. it should not be the first medicine to treat diabetes, or for people with type 1 diabetes or diabetic ketoacidosis. do not take trulicity if you or a family member has had medullary thyroid cancer, if you've had multiple endocrine neoplasia syndrome type 2, or if you are allergic to trulicity. stop trulicity and call your doctor right away if you have a lump or swelling in your neck, severe pain in your stomach, or symptoms such as itching, rash, or trouble breathing. serious side effects may include pancreatitis, which can be fatal. taking trulicity with a sulfonylurea or insulin, increases your risk for low blood sugar.
10:57 pm
common side effects include nausea, diarrhea, vomiting, decreased appetite and indigestion. some side effects can lead to dehydration, which may make existing kidney problems worse. once-weekly trulicity may help me reach my blood sugar goals. with trulicity, i click to activate what's within me. if you want help improving your a1c and blood sugar, activate your within. ask your doctor about once-weekly trulicity. there's nothing more than my so when i need to book a hotel room, i want someone that makes it easy to find what i want. gets it. and with their price match, i know i'm getting the best price every time. now i can start relaxing even before the vacation begins. your memorial day weekend is very important. that's why makes finding the right hotel for the right price easy. find great deals now at booking.yeah!
