conceivable terror attacks, et cetera, and president trump released a statementlet "our nation owes an eternal debt of gratitude." >> dana: "hannity" is next. >> sean: thanks to our friends on "the five." this is a fox news alert. we have a very big announcement about the show coming up but first, we are following four major breaking news stories tonight. president trump is putting the u.n. on notice as he meets with world leaders. plus, president trump will address the u.n. tomorrow and he is planning on singling out north korea and iran. we'll have a preview of his big major speech and, of course, out of touch hollywood liberal elitists attacking the president at the emmys, and also congressional republicans have 13 weeks. they are on the verge of many major breakthroughs in finally passing the president's agenda. it's time for the g.o.p. to keep their promises and serve the
10:01 pm
people. all of that and tonight's very important opening monologue. ♪ >> sean: president trump arrived at the united nations earlier today and wasted little time in calling out the organization's many failures. take a look at this. >> in recent years the united nations has not reached its full potential because of bureaucracy and mismanagement. we seek a united nations that regains the trust of the people around the world. in order to achieve this, the united nations must hold every level of management accountable. protect whistle blowers. and focus on results rather than on process. further, we encourage all member states to look at ways to take bold stands at the united nations with an eye toward changing business as usual and not being beholden to ways of the past. >> sean: it's really refreshing for an american president to call out the u.n. because for years we have seen the organization repeatedly attack
10:02 pm
israel and push their radical leftist globalist agenda that does not respect the sovereignty of individual countries including the u.s. this of course comes despite the fact that the u.s. provides 22% of the funding to the u.n. and their regular budget and 28% of the money that goes to u.n. peacekeeping missions. president trump's criticism of the u.n. comes ahead of his speech to the general assembly that's happening tomorrow morning. and according to a senior trump administration official the president will focus on his policy of principled realism, call on u.n. members to do more across the globe. and specifically, condemn these rogue regimes of north korea and iran. president trump's speech could not come at a more important time, with north korea ramping up their missile and nuclear weapons program. when it comes to this north korean threat, the trump administration are keeping every option on the table and the u.s. ambassador to the u.n., nikki
10:03 pm
haley made it clear pyongyang's aggressive failure will not be tolerated. >> we know basically if north korea keeps on with this reckless behavior, if the united states has to defend itself or defend its allies in any way north korea will be destroyed and we all know that and none of us want that. none of us want worwar but we also have to look at the fact that you are dealing with someone who is being reckless, irresponsible and is continuing it give threats not only to the united states but to all of their allies. something is going to have to be done. we're trying every other possibility that we have but there is a whole lot of military options on the table. >> sean: it will be destructive and they will be incinerated as we have been saying on this program. there are not a lot of good solutions to the dangerous situation with north korea. we'll have more on that. john bolton will join us in a few minutes. tonight, leftist hollywood elites smearing, slandering,
10:04 pm
besmirching the character of president trump at the emmys. look at some of the comments from these everypaid, out of touch, pampered hollywood -- these overpaid, out of touch, pampered hollywood liberals. >> you can't deny that all the late night shows, house of cards, new season of american horror story and, of course, next year's latin grammys hosted by sheriff joe arpaio. i thought you people loved morally compromised antiheroes. you like walter white. he's just walter much whiter. >> i suppose i should say at long last, mr. president, here is your emmy. >> back in 1980 in that movie we refused to be controlled by a sexist, egotistical can, lying, hypocritical bigot and in 2017 we still refuse to be controlled by a sexist, egotistical, lying,
10:05 pm
hypocritical bigot. >> i want to thank trump for making black people number one on the most oppressed list. >> sean: the person that stole the show was former white house press secretary sean spicerment one minute of levity, anyway. take a look. >> unfortunately at this point we have no way of knowing how big our audience is. is there anyone who could say how big the audience is? sean, do you know? >> this will be the largest audience to witness an emmys. period. >> sean: not exactly. while all these hollywood leftists were hysterical over sean spicer's joke about crowd size, it turns out the american people didn't really care to watch this hollywood hatefest. last night's awards show barely missed setting the record for
10:06 pm
the least watched emmys ever, and for good reason. hollywood's insane, unhinged hatred for the president is pretty much unlike anything we have ever seen. how actors and comedians and threatened or encouraged violence against the president. they've become deranged and in a weird way obsessed with the president and it shows how out of touch, oblivious they are to the american people and the agenda you voted for. when are we going to have an awards show for doctors and carpenters that save lives and people that do plumbing and heating that make our lives better and truck drivers and the people that bring us the materials they need. do they ever get an awards show, ever? it appears that senate republicans are interested in keeping their promises as they made about repealing and replacing obama care. let's not get our expectations up too high but after senate
10:07 pm
majority leader mitch mcconnell failed to get enough votes in july, there is a new amendment to get rid of obama care once and for all. highlights of this plan. it replaces obama care subsidies with block grants to the states. instead of a one size fits all approach dictated by washington states will be able to choose how they want to spend the money and it ends both the crushing individual and employer mandates, the massive and unaffordable medicaid expansion will be pared back, insurers will have the flexibility to offer plans forbidden under obama care. health savings accounts will be expanded, same with health cooperatives and those are all republican ideas and principles. i kept saying during that debate where are the republican ideas we have talked about for 15 years? republicans do need to get this done before september 30. that's when the budget reconciliation process window closes or else then they'll need 60 votes to repeal and replace
10:08 pm
obama care. after that it would be unlikely to happen. the senate majority leader mcconnell, republicans need to do everything within their power to get this passed. the clock is ticking. while the president waits on republicans to get their act together, his administration, they are moving ahead on a plan that would allow studies to be conducted on energy exploration in anwar -- the arctic national wildlife refuge in alaska. jobs are at stake. estimates put the number of untapped anwar oil reserves at between 4 and 12 billion barrels of oil. energy independence has been one of the president's major promises and allowing drilling in a region, we have shown pictures before, it is a vast wilderness. a huge step in america energy independence. congress will need to continue to move ahead on tax reform. the plan is simple. seven brackets to three. 15% corporate rate. to america american businesses
10:09 pm
more competitive. they will invest in factories and manufacturing centers,a, louing multinational corporations to repate reate at a low rate. they'll be investing in american workers and american products. all of this helps the forgotten men and women in this country that were key to the last election. if you do all of this, you gut regulations which can the president has been doing, unleash the american economy. this is great for everybody. we cannot forget. congress needs it fund the border wall. get the money first. that money needs to be secured first before any other deal is made on immigration, period, end of sentence. you always get the tax increase. never the spending cuts. you always get some type of conciliation on whatever it happens to be but you never get the promised border security. here with reaction, r.n.c. spokesperson kaley mcinernie,
10:10 pm
florida attorney general pam bondi. issues on the table tonight. where do you want to start? >> very important issues. first with the u.n. since we're in new york -- >> sean: is that why you're here? >> i'm speaking at the concordia summit tomorrow on human trafficking. which is a near and dear -- >> sean: part of immigration. >> we have been working with the mexican government. that's why i'm all for building the wall and the drug crisis and the african governments on human trafficking but china has to come to the table and president trump has made that very cler. >> sean: north korea. they have a lot of power over north korea. >> that's what i'm talking approximate, sean. they absolutely do. they have a tremendous amount of power over north korea and that's how we can stop this madman, this maniac, from going forward. >> sean: geraldo, i thought of you. we are both big freedom of speech guys. i don't call for boycotts. i don't call for firing peoplement not even an isis posed with a severed head of the
10:11 pm
president although you suggested it could be i crime as a threat to the president. it seems like the intolerance in this country now is almost solely on the left because if any conservatives spoke at the emmys about obama the way they speak about donald trump, our president, you know the outrage would be loud, fast, furious and conservatives probably would end up fired. >> i was going to say of the united nations, sean, that it was dysfunctional and bloated. i think the same thing about the emmy awards show last night. it was dysfunctional and bloated. it gets so predictable that they're going to hit trump, they're going to hit him with the -- whatever their acceptance speech isitary going to wind it around until finally they can take a jab at the president. i thought that the pros did the best job -- i think stephen colbert was funny and the bit with sean spicer. i think it's great when you poke fun at yourself when you can disarm the audience. i thought that sean spicer did good for himself.
10:12 pm
he certainly jacked up his speaking fee. >> sean: he jacked up his speaking fee. why do you go right to the business ept of this? which cracks me up. as i listened a little bit of this last night, i couldn't watch it. it's intolerable to me, kaley, one thing of note. all of the lies that are told every two and four years in elections in this country by democrats, republicans are rissist, sexist, misogynistic, homophobic, islamophobic, that's what they believe, they have believed the democratic live. the president is unlike past presidents. he's fighting back against the lie and i think it's refreshing because it's something that is so vicious that they've gotten away with. it's now made it to the mainstream where people believe this garbage. >> sean, it's so sad. you're exactly right. this is straight out of the playbook of the left. this demonization philosophy. go back to 1980. go back to ronald reagan. they said that ronald reagan
10:13 pm
raised the specter of white sheets. they said that voting for ronald reagan was like a good german voting in hitler's germany. demonizing him as a racist, misogynist, the same things they're saying about president trump. it's false. it's defamatory. president trump is fighting back and it kills those liberals. it kills the hollywood elite. that's why they used their entire platform to skewer the president. >> sean: let's go to the agenda, pam bondi. the president has to get funding first. i think you would agree it would be a good thing -- as conservatives, don't we always want to send things back to the states? health care. >> absolutely. >> sean: if he gets his tax plan in place, it includes things like getting rid of the alternative minimum. ending the double death tax which people pay. energy independence. i think that spurs economic growth we have never seen since reagan. >> of course it does, because we have a businessman who is president of the united states and that's what the liberal elite can't handle, and they're not going to get to president
10:14 pm
trump. we know him. he's not going to be affected by it. he's going to charge forward with his agenda to fix our country and it's got to start with tax reform. we've got to build the wall. we've got to repeal and replace obama care. my state, we're lead counsel on that, that's important to us and the entire and he's not going to stop. >> sean: geraldo, for the first time in a long time after talking to a lot of the lordship this weekend in the house and talking to a lot of rank and file in the house and senate i'm thinking the items i just mentioned actually could get done. i didn't believe it up until now. >> i think you may be a bit optimistic, sean. i think the one issue you haven't really focused on this evening, i think, is the priority. north korea has the possibility of affecting all of our lives in the way nievenl did for the worst. >> sean: we have ambassador bolton in the next segment. >> in terms of obama care, i
10:15 pm
don't know where people are getting the optimism that this time the g.o.p. is going it get their act together. >> sean: they're one vote away, right now i can tell you they're one vote away in the senate and and the house will support it. >> is john mccain, sainted war hero, going it gethis way again? >> sean: lindsey graham is sponsoring the bill. lisa murkowski can hold it up, susan collins and rand paul. >> in terms of domestic policy, let them focus on something that's attainable. >> sean: that's attainable. >> we have been spending the last week or so concentrating heavily on tax reform and you laid it out in a pretty clear fashion. three tax rates instead of seven. so forth and so on. why can't we concentrate -- why can't we -- now after 7 1/2 years with this obama care phony baloney, why don't we do something that we can actually achieve? >> sean: you may be right.
10:16 pm
most people can walk and chew gum. most americans have the sense of urgency that works, 16 hours a day and don't take off months at a time, you might be right there. i hate to concede a point that they're lazy and never underestimate their competence. i'll give kaley an opportunity to respond. >> geraldo talked about health care being unattainable. this is indispensable to the well being of the american people. if graham-cassidy passes, look what passed going back to conservative principles. putting decision making in the hands of the states, not the federal government which a.g. bondi fought valiantly for when she led on this. >> sean: thank you. my adopted brother. >> i love you, brother. >> sean: kayleigh, thank you. isn't the person we're dealing with is not van jones, it's geraldo. he's a good guy and one of my

>> live from america's news headquarters, i'm kelly wright. potentially catastrophic is what firsters call hurricane maria. the category 5 storm is currently zeroing in on puerto rico with sustained winds of 160 miles per hour. she's expected to strike the island by wednesday. a number of caribbean islands are also in maria's path, many of them still recovering from hurricane irma which brought death and mass destruction to the region just last week. the st. louis saw a fourth straight night of protests monday. the unrest triggered after a white excop was declared not guilty last week in the 2011 shooting death of a black man. more violence monday night near atlanta's georgia tech. the trouble began after a vigil honoring a student shot and killed by police saturday night.

investigators say he kept moving toward officers with a knife. i'm kelly wright. back to hannity. >> sean: welcome back to hannity. today president trump made his first appearance at the u.n. in new york city as commander in chief and he had this to say about an organization that i claim has been historically anti-american and anti-semitic. take a look. >> the united nations was founded on truly noble goals. these include the dignity and worth of the human person and striving for international peace. the united nations has helped advance toward these goals in so many ways. to honor the people of our nations, we must ensure that no one and no member state shoulders a disproportionate share of the burden and that's militarily or financially. >> sean: here with reaction, fox news contributor, formaler u.s.
10:23 pm
ambassador to the u.n. john bolton. first, react to the president's comments and then react to my comments, i saw you look at me when i mentioned what i feel about the u.n. >> the president is an optimistic man. he laid out his criticism not like it was a campaign speech which it wasn't and said i hope we can get reform. i don't think it's going to happen. i have watched these effects for 25 years and more and the overall effect is neck negligible. the only thing that can get the attention of the secretariat and are the nations is for the u.s. to based on this principle. we pay only for what we want. >> sean: why do we get stuck with 22% of the bill, 28% of the money for u.n. peacekeeps and the majority of forces are almost universally majority american all the time? >> here is an interesting statistic. china, which everybody is
10:24 pm
telling us their economy is almost as big as ours, china is going to surpass us -- they pay 7% of the u.n.'s budget. >> sean: they have the same power we do. >> that's why i say people take this 22, 28% as an entitlement and just like in washington entitlement programs sap initiative. the best run programs in the u.n. today tend to be those funded by voluntary contributions. a lot of our european friends won't like it. life is hard. but i think we need to go to voluntary contributions and do it unilaterally if the others won't go along. then they will pay attention to us. >> sean: am i using hyperbole? am am i wrong? am i being unfair? to say the organization generally speaking -- its voting over the years has been anti-semitic and anti-american? >> there is no question about it. if you looked at votes in the u.n. general assembly, bhfr we stand on principle we -- whenever we stand on principle we lose. whenever we insist on trying to live up to the u.n.'s founding
10:25 pm
ideals we lose. that's been true for decades. and yet, we put this "kick me" sign on us and pay for it as well. >> sean: one of the things that frustrates me is -- by the way, beyond they're in new york right now, you can't budge in new york. >> good exercise. you've got tow walk everywhere. >> sean: we have good lives. that's not the point. i don't think they have done anything effective in terms of what their mission was. i would think at some point, i like your idea about doing it voluntarily but a bigger point is if they can't function and have a sense of right and wrong -- when you put iran on the u.n. human rights commission -- >> what could go wrong? >> sean: a country that kills gays and lesbians, persecutes christians and jews, talks about wiping israel off the map. how do you put them on the human rights commission? >> the united states should resign from the human rights
10:26 pm
council right now. one of the happiest votes i made at the u.n. in 2006 in the bush administration was about creating this new body. it has not performed for over i decade. we ought to get off of it and defund it immediately. >> sean: we'll have more with ambassador bolton after the break. nikki haley talking about the possible destruction of north korea. i have used the word "incinerate." what about the nuclear deal with iran? also tonight i go one-on-one. hannity shootout. stand by. it's important. straight ahead. you always pay your insurance on time. tap one little bumper and up go your rates. what good is having insurance if you get punished for using it? for drivers with accident forgiveness, liberty mutual won't raise your rates due to your first accident. liberty mutual insurance.

leadership the alliance between america and israel has never been stronger. never been deeper. i look forward to discussing with you how we can address together what you rightly call the terrible nuclear deal with iran and how to roll back iran's growing aggression in the region. especially in -- >> sean: president trump and israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu at the u.n. we continue with john bolton. nikki haley said, and i agree with her, if north korea continues the sabre rattling and firing missiles over japan and we know they have nuclear capability, they want icbm capability so they can reach the continental united states, it's only a prescription in my opinion -- she said destruction. i would use the word "incineration." that country will have to be incinerated. there will be no option.
10:32 pm
>> 10-point north korea is close to having the ability to hit any target in the united states with a thermonuclear weapon. it is unacceptable for our innocent population to have to live with this threat. when this present crisis ends if north korea still has the nuclear weapons capability we have lost. susan rice, obama's national security advisor said we have tried for 25 years to stop north korea. i guess we failed. we have to learn to live with it like we learned to nuclear weapons of the soviet union. we do not. it's i dangerous and facile analogy. >> sean: bill clinton when he announces the nuclear deal after he spent billions in taxpayer dollars in subsidies with north korea, "this is a good deal for the american people." some good deal because now he has the nuclear weapons we were promised they wouldn't have, now they've got the missile technology. i don't see anything different unfelding over time as i listen to the prime minister as it relates to iran. you have radical islam married to weapons of mass destruction.
10:33 pm
that to me is an a squared, b squared, c squared formula and that is radical islamists, nuclear upon weapons, modern-day holocaust. >> it gets worse after that. whatever capability north korea has, iran will have tomorrow. the iranians will buy it from them. i hope this meeting between president trump and bibi netanyahu explains why the u.s. has to getow out of this deal by the middle of october. >> sean: if he fiebz in any way they're not living up to the deal, i think it's month by month he signs off on it. >> every 90 days. if he says this deal is not in the united states national interest which it manifestly is not he decertifies. he has to get out of the deal. he has to provide political and moral clar t >> ashley: i hope -- clarity. i hope his advisors give him the
10:34 pm
chance. >> sean: egyptian president al sisi standing up to not muslim brotherhood there. they designated them a terrorist organization. we have not in the u.s. which is nuts but he has shown great courage taking on radical islam and he said talking about how islam needs a reformation if you will or i dramatic change. i'm sure he put himself the great risk. it seems that israel, the saudis, the egyptians, the jordanians and other gulf states have aligned because of i fear of iranian hegemony in the region. >> i think that's absolutely right and i hope the president lays out tomorrow why the iranian threat is not confined only to its nuclear program which we have talked about but to its continuing support for international terrorism. its efforts to dominate the middle east. the threat to israel. and the threat to us. >> sean: ambassador, very troubled times. i think north korea -- we're on
10:35 pm
the verge. do you agree? this is going to happen. >> a decision has to be made. it cannot be ducked any longer. >> sean: i think we're going to have to take out their missiles on the launchpad. >> we can't leave them with a nuclear weapon. even if they didn't have ballistic capability they could sell it. >> sean: very dangerous. thank you, sir. when we come back, hillary clinton tells n.p.r. she's not going to rule out questioning the legitimacy of the 2016 election results. can you say cry baby? if new information about the election. up next austan goolsbee and the big announcement at the end of the show. straight ahead.

a number of other caribbean islands are also in maria's path including the u.s. virgin islands. president trump had planned to visit both u.s. territories to survey the damage left by hurricane irma. that trip now on hold. the senate has improved a defense policy bill that grants the pentagon a $700 billion budget. the measure would provide $640 billion for core military operations such as buying weapons and paying troops and another $60 billion for wartime mission inside afghanistan, iraq, syria and elsewhere. i'm kelly wright. >> sean: welcome back to "hannity." hillary clinton refuses to accept the fact that she lost the election to president trump and in an interview with n.p.r. clinton says she won't rule out contesting the election and election results if there is proof of russia election interference. this is the exact opposite of what clinton tweeted about donald trump last october. "donald trump refused to say
10:41 pm
that he respects the results of the election. a direct threat to our democracy." former obama economic advisor austin goolsbee. the conspiracy theorists on "the new york times" and "the washington post" have been telling us russia, russia, russia. you follow the news as closely as anybody i know, austin. can you name one piece of evidence that we have of trump-russia collougz in the election? >> well, you backed away there. now it's only donald trump himself. a couple of months ago you told me there was no evidence of the campaign's collusion. >> sean: i'll help you out. can you name me specific evidence that has been cited of trump campaign and russia collusion in the election or the d.n.c. emails with john podesta emails? do you have any evidence of it? >> suggestive evidence. certainly there is suggestive evidence.
10:42 pm
>> sean: no, no, no. give me a little meat on a bone. give me something. >> the fact that they sent an email to don jr. saying we have dirt on hillary clinton and he says "i love it. let's have a meeting." >> sean: is that any different -- all right. that is evidence of a collusion -- that's evidence of collusion. here is the question i have. when a d.n.c.-paid staffer met with the ukrainian embassy -- with the ukrainian ambassador at the embassy and then reported back to the d.n.c. and reported back to hillary clinton's campaign, is that worse than what you are saying is the little tiny meat on the bone -- what you are giving me is maybe a little morsel of dog food here. you're not giving me any meat. >> i don't know on the ukraine. i haven't seen the -- >> sean: you don't want to talk about that? >> hold on. i haven't seen the argument that the ukraine was trying to criminally -- >> sean: they were. they leaked information to try
10:43 pm
