getting 27 vaccine boosters. he has it! apparently, he's infectious! so if you see him, pretty small -- but if you look down and see him, stay away he's a typhoid mary of georgetown. we're back tomorrow night. spend time with the ones you love. sean hannity next. >> sean: welcome to "hannity." in a moment we'll cover today's whopping three quarters of a point rate hike from the fed, the single biggest increase since 1994 and we'll tell you how this specifically will negatively impact the already horrific biden economy, but get this, we actually begin with good news, the tide is already turning in the washington sewer and swamp. help is on the way in what could be a canary in the
coal mine moment for the democratic party. last night, there was a special congressional race in south texas. it saw a very deep blue sea turn bright red. now, republican mayra flores easily defeated her democratic opponent by eight points in district 34. now, get this, it's the first time in 150 years this district ever elected a republican! in 2012, obama won it by 23 points. 2016, yeah, hillary won it by 22 points. biden only won it by four, but now republican mayra flores, she won it by eight. all right, that would be a 12-point swing in two years, a 30-point swing if you go back to 2016. keep in mind, this is a majority hispanic district. it borders mexico to the south along the rio grande valley. now, mayra actually immigrated to the u.s. from mexico making her the very first mexican-born woman to be elected to congress. she's also married to a u.s. border patrol agent. she made border security a
huge focus of her campaign. take a look. >> too many -- to many, the borders of our politics, but for me, it's about my life. i'm mayra flores. i was born in mexico. now, i'm living my american dream. the liberal policies from washington are tearing our community apart. as a wife of a border patrol agent, i pray for his safety now more than ever. i'm mayra flores, and i approve this message, because we must secure our borders and keep our families safe. >> sean: clearly this is a winning message, not just in the rio grande valley but also across the u.s. safety, security, prosperity, the american dream. it's why people from all over the world risk life and limb to get here. now, sadly, most democrats have lost sight of what does make this country great. many want to transform america into something that would be totally unrecognizable to most of us. we're seeing this in schools.
we're seeing this with policing. we're seeing this with our borders. we're seeing this with violence. we're seeing this with woke democrats. they have left their mark and not in a good way, but americans clearly are paying attention. what we saw in virginia with glen youngkin and education, what almost happened in new jersey... nobody was paying attention in the governor's race there. that race could have turned red. believe it or not, new jersey. and here we have mayra flores, 150 years, finally a change to republican. it's got to be replicated in every state, every district in the country. now, republicans are publicly targeting 75 congressional seats held by democrats. i expect that number to grow. now, if i were leading the republican effort for the midterms, i would try to put every race in every state in play. yeah, i'd even put the new york governor's race in play. any way, here now with more from her big win last night, congresswoman-elect mayra flores. congresswoman, first of all,
congratulations. everything was perfect in your video. we have to work on that soccer kick a little bit. soccer kick needed a little help. [chuckles] >> aw, no. thank you so much. i appreciate it. all the support. >> sean: your family and your life story is beyond compelling. a district that was -- >> thank you. >> sean: a district that was democratic for 150 years. now, you're on the ground. obviously, illegal immigration had been a big issue where you live. tell us what changed? what happened? >> well, you know, i was blessed to come here to the united states legally when i was six years old. i want that experience for all children. i don't want any child to have to go through such dangerous journey, so i'll never understand why the democrat party continues to encourage with their policies illegal immigration knowing what they're going to go through, and i want to focus on legal immigration
and improve the process where they don't have to go through that journey. and, look, we don't have to hear it on tv about the border crisis. it's happening here right in our backyard. it's very real to us. child trafficking is very real to us. children are innocent no matter where they're from. they should be our priority. >> sean: so your parents came here legally, like my grandparents came from ireland legally. they came through ellis island. we see something happening. we always do polling in election years. we break things down demographically. what we've been witnessing is a dramatic shift among hispanic-american voters, african-american voters, the youth vote n particular -- in particular... women voters are out there. they're all leaving the democratic party, at least on paper for now. we've seen a few political earthquakes. i would argue your race is a huge potential bellwether for what may happen in
november. why do you think that people in demographic that has historically -- demographics that historically have been in the democratic party coalition, why are they now leaning towards the republicans and the conservatives? >> well, i feel like the democrat party has walked away from the hispanic community. they've gone so far left, and they don't represent our values. people always ask me, mayra, how can you be a republican whenever you're born in mexico? that clearly shows me they know nothing about our culture. i was raised with strong conservative values. we're all about faith, family and hard work. that's who we are. our values really do align with the republican party, but i do steel that, you -- but i do feel that, you know, prior to 2020, no one was paying attention to the hispanic community. i'm grateful finally the republican party is investing in the hispanic community, because we're the future, but the democrat party has fully abandoned us
and taken us for granted. they feel entitled to our vote. they feel they don't really have to work for it. what we're showing now is that yes, you do have to work to earn our vote, and that's why we won this special election, because we worked hard. we knocked on thousands of doors and made thousands of phone calls. i have the most hard-working team. that's the reason why we're also going to win that re-election in november, because no one is going to outdo the work that we're doing. >> sean: well, by the way, elon musk voted for you. i'm kind of fascinated with elon musk. i think he's a great modern-day innovator, and he's a real true original to me. what do you think of that? >> i was honestly so excited when i heard about it and, um, so grateful that he came here to south texas and invested in this community, because, again, this community is amazing. we're all about, you know, family and hard work and finally, you know, so many people are, like elon musk,
are coming here to invest in this community, and, um, we'll always be grateful to him and spacex. i can't wait to meet with him and have an opportunity to tell him, you know, what the plans i have for texas district 34. >> sean: you have clout now. you're the elected congresswoman. sad part is you have to run again in november, i understand, in a redrawn district. we're going to follow your career very closely. we congratulate you, congresswoman. thank you for being with us. >> thank you so much. >> sean: now we turn -- sorry, don't blame the messenger to the not so good news -- earlier today, the massive three quarters of a point rate hike from the fed. now, this is the third increase from the fed since joe biden took office. goldman sachs, for example, predicts in the next two years, as many as 11, maybe more. any way, three so far. many more expected and as inflation is creating the savings and retirement funds -- you're all watching it, you're all seeing it, donald
trump predicted it, it's hurting americans all across the country, especially the poor, the middle-class, people on fixed incomes. 2/3 of americans are now living paycheck-to-paycheck. sadly, rate hikes are not good for, for example, property values to put it mildly. let's break down what this rate hike means, for example. now, under donald trump, in 2020, many americans, they were getting mortgages with interest rates around 3%, some even lower in the twos. i'm talking about a 30-year fixed rate. now, if you bought a $400,000 home, let's say you put 20% down, your monthly payment on a 30-year loan would be $1,993 a month. at the end of 30 years, the total mortgage paid with interest if you bought a $400,000 house, it would be $485,600. now, you go a half a point or a half a percent increase in interest rates, your payment goes up by $100.
and the total payment paid over 30 years goes up by $32,000. another half a point, you're looking at a $200 increase every month and a $64,000 hike altogether. that's at 4% interest. now, prior to today, a 30-year fixed mortgage was averaging -- well, 6.3-some-odd percent. at that rate, your monthly payment is $500 more than it would have been in 2020, and the total amount that you would pay over the course of your loan would be $203,000! wow! now, today, it gets a lot worse. rates now expected to go as high as 7.5%. let's take a look at buying that same home. that means if you compare the rates in 2020 under donald trump, well, you'll pay $1,000 more per month and after today's hike and interest rates going up,
you'll spend a whopping $320,000 more over the 30-year course of your loan after today. the same price you would have only paid for, what? a year and a half ago? i mean, it's unbelievable! it's staggering! now, at these rates, that means purchasing a home now is going to become unaffordable for many americans, if not most americans. that means sales of existing homes, that's going to plummet. know the day and age you put a house on the market and 15 people come in, and people are bidding above asking price, those days are now going toned, except for -- going to end, except for states where people are moving to like florida, texas, tennessee and the carolinas but for most states, home values will plummet. new home construction will come to a screeching halt killing contractors. fewer and fewer americans are going to refinance homes and guess what? the property values that's been rising over the last number of years, that, like
your stock market and your 401(k), that will plummet. in fact, they're already going down as we speak. this will not only impact the housing market us about also america's financial institutions. we're headed straight for a recession, even as inflation continues to climb. now, this week, we also learned that the producer price index -- this measures wholesale prices that businesses pay and you pay more on top of it -- it's up a whopping 10.8%. if you watch this program, you know the driver of these costs is record high gas prices and diesel prices. joe biden could work to bring those prices down right now and don't take my word for t let's listen to -- word for t let's listen to kevin o'leary, cnbc, take a look. >> the economy and the market won't be able to recover unless we see some relief and relief that we can believe is a long-term solution for oil. >> here's how you fix that problem. it was a policy mistake by biden when he came in. you reverse the mistake.
all you have to do is job own. the oil market is a future's market. announce you'll have three new refineries on the east coast. announce we'll reexamine the x-cel pipeline and give back the leeches and enwar. all of those policy mistakes could be reversed by just getting up and job owning it! you could take oil down below $100 if you got more accommodative towards the futures production. biden may not do that. that's on him. >> sean: bingo. biden wouldn't do that because of the radical climate religious woke that runs the administration won't do that. biden sent a very mean, threatening letter to oil companies demanding they stop taking a profit, because it's the patriotic thing to do. joe, they have a fiduciary responsibility to their shareholders, joe, but keep this in mind any way despite
the administration and them demonizing and blaming everyone and anyone but themselves and they're going after the oil giants, let's look at companies like exxonmobil, their profits are flat over the last quarter and in 2020, guess what, joe? many of these companies lost money. they made no profit at all. but you're not going to hear that from the administration, because they're just looking to scapegoat. they'll blame putin, trump and blame oil companies. they'll blame meat companies. they'll blame poultry companies. so let's be very clear. joe biden caused this problem. he caused it because of his election promises. he told you and promised every american this is what he was going to do. i will remind you, again, so you never forget it, and you can tell all of your friends. take a look. >> if we don't stop using fossil fuels? >> we're all dead. doing away for any subsidies for fossil fuels, number one. and number two, holding them
liable for what they've done, particularly in those cases where your underserved neighborhoods and, you know the deal, ok? and by the way, when they don't, we'll put them in jail. >> kiddo, i want you to just take a look, ok? you don't have to agree but i want you to look in my eyes. i guarantee you, i guarantee you, we're going to end fossil fuel, and i'm not going to cooperate with you, ok? >> would there be any place for fossil fuels including coal and fracking in a biden administration? >> no, we -- we'll work it out. we would make sure it's eliminated. >> sean: of course, his promises didn't stop there. biden also vowed to treat saudi arabia like a pariah country directly accusing the crowned prince of being responsible for the death of journalist jamal khashoggi. lo and behold, joe biden is headed over to saudi arabia to meet with the crowned prince where our president, i'd bet pretty much every penny i had, he's going to
gravel on his hands and knees and beg the crowned prince to pump more oil, all because the religious climate alarmist cult in the democratic party won't let him produce oil, gas domestically. it's that simple. here with reaction, the author of "here's the deal," a number one "new york times" best seller, kellyanne conway is with us. and also our good friend, former chief of staff, mark meadows is with us. all right, so the words were, kellyanne, you just heard it, "i guarantee i will end fossil fuels. look at my eye. i'll eliminate it" he said it. he's doing it. we're all paying the price for it. can't say he didn't keep his word. he kept his word. i give him credit for keeping his word. >> then why isn't he owning it? actually, he said it's putin's fault. the only american who believes the gas price increase is putin fault is joe biden. the rest of americans think it's joe biden's fault. if he's so proud of this,
he's actually keeping a promise from the campaign to outflank bernie sanders and elizabeth in the aoc, he should own it. sean, this is a guy on earth day in april took air force one to washington state, not washington d.c. but to washington state to celebrate earth day. folks, just to review quickly, air force one runs on fossil fuel, a lot of them, and big carbon footprint. look, this also goes with inflation. first, it was transitory. then it was a high-class treadmill problem. then it was good for the economy. then it was putin's fault. now, it's corporation's fault. greedy corporations, oil and gas. and guess what? americans are very clear on everyone's polling, they think it's joe biden's fault. remember, when the green new deal went up for a vote in the senate and got, like, zero votes when they were all out on the campaign trail, remember corey cooker? green new deal. they didn't vote positively for it.
to your talking point from a party searching for messages -- and by the way you're absolutely right. the nonwhite vote realigning tour, the republican party, we saw it starting with president trump in 2020. he did four points better among hispanics overall, but in states like texas, nevada, arizona, even higher gains among the nonwhite vote, what do you think they think when they hear joe biden say he's going to eliminate fossil fuels when they hear pete buttigieg say we promise to have electric charging stations everywhere? >> sean: well, you know, because, john kerry, the private jet extraordinaire flyer himself, we absolutely don't need to drill for more oil and gas, so it's by design! now, mark, you're a smart guy, a lot smarter than i am. maybe you can explain this to me. try to tell me if you -- if you extract a barrel of oil from the u.s. or take it from russia or iran where
joe is begging or venezuela or saudi arabia or opec nations, tell me, is there any different impact on mother earth depending on where you drill for the oil? because i'm having a hard time understanding eliminating domestic oil drilling versus importing it at higher rates and making enny countries rich as hell? i'm having a hard time with that concept. >> you should have a hard time with the concept, because obviously it's about eliminating american jobs. you know, the last time a president actually went to saudi arabia to plead and beg for help was under the days of jimmy carter. you know, and what did jimmy carter have that joe biden didn't have? actually, he had a higher confidence level in the economy than joe biden has right now, and here's the interesting thing is when we start to look at it, kellyanne was right, you know, it's gone from all over the excuses, but remember they said inflation was transitory? the only thing that's
transitory are the people that they blame for what is causing all of this and they need to look in the mirror in the oval office, because it's joe biden, his policies, and, yes, could he fix it? he could fix it tomorrow if what they did was put a bill on the floor that says we're going to increase refineries, we're going to go ahead and fast track permits to do that and make sure that we're energy-dominant once again, because we've got the natural resources to do it and yet politics continues to rule the day for joe biden. what we're going to see are more examples like congresswoman-elect flores getting elected, because they realize where the blame lies. >> sean: all right so i have a question, 15 seconds each... is there any chance -- let's assume there's a shellacking in november and republicans take back the house and senate, something i hope could happen if this is a wave election year, it absolutely will -- the question is, if that happens, will they wise up
and change course? kellyanne? >> no. a lot of democrats will say they're running for president, particularly from the left. and, look, just to tie up this whole segment, i think a president that has no energy has no business making energy policy. >> sean: ha-ha. mark. >> well said, kellyanne. i think the other big thing is -- you get an a+ -- i don't think it's going to change at all. i can tell you democrats were pleading with their democrat colleagues on the house floor today saying, "please do something!" they will not do anything. >> sean: agree on both points. both of you are right. all right, thank you for being with us. despite -- and coming up, by the way, despite being cleared of criminal wrongdoing, the biden administration is now preparing to punish the border patrol agents falsely accused of whipping migrants that had already been cleared. sarah carter at the border with details on that situation. also, senator ted cruz will join us and discuss the serious threats that are now all over the country for
>> sean: now despite being cleared never criminal conduct by the department of homeland security, inspector general earlier in the year, the biden administration has now said to punish border patrol agents that were falsely accused of whipping haitian migrants in september of 2021. now, remember they were already cleared of anything illegal. according to fox news.com, these border agents will now face punitive administrative violations despite the whipping allegations being totally debunked. now ask yourself, if they were cleared of criminal conduct and no violation occurred, why then is there
a punishment? any way, here with the latest from our border is our very-own sarah carter. i think i have insight to that, sarah. it goes back to joe biden. remember, he rushed to judgment and he immediately said that those agents will pay. he also said there'll be consequences, well, the investigation cleared any wrongdoing. why are there consequences? >> reporter: there's frustration and anger and low morale among the border patrol agents along the mexican/u.s. border tonight. according to the agents i've spoken with and people with the dhs that are sources of mine, this has to do with president biden's statements and the fact he didn't retract those statements. the disciplinary action that was taken by the office of
responsibility will come in the form of basic suspension from multiple agents. you can only imagine how they feel and how angry they are. earlier this morning, we were out on an operation with border patrol agents. we were doing our investigation and sure enough, over 300 to 400 -- that's what they were estimating -- early this morning, came across the border. we saw people from venezuela yesterday. people from all over the world. they were part of that group of 15,000. the reason why i bring this up, sean, the reason why this is so important is because agents feel their morale is so low right now that they feel they're just an extension of the drug cartels and they're angry. they're upset. the border patrol union is going to fight back. >> >> sean: and the largest caravan to date is making its way to our border and i know you'll be covering it for us, sarah -- sara, as always, thank you. the supreme court expected an abortion ruling something up sometime this month and it's now fueling far left rage and threats of outright violence as a far left
prohibition group. they're called jane's revenge. they're now reportingly declaring "open season on pro-life americans." they said in a statement yesterday, "from here forward, any anti-choice group who closes their doors and stops operating will no longer be a target, but until you do, it is open season and we know where your operations are." um, hello. merrick garland, where might you be? this is the same group that claimed responsibility to the attack on a pregnancy center in des moines earlier in the month along with several others, and since the leak of the draft opinion, there have been at least 20 attacks on pregnancies or pro-life centers all across the country. now, finally after attack after attack after attack, the white house this week finally offered a statement of condemnation telling the daily wire, "violence of destruction of property have no place in our country under any circumstances, and
the president denounces this." tepid and late, joe! sounds like a coming insurrection. any way, just like the biden administration saying it's ok to intimidate and harass supreme court justices in front of their homes and give out the name of their kids' schools and give out the name of the churches they attend, not a peep about chuck schumer, him on the steps of the supreme court with direct threats against justices. you won't know what hit you. ask yourselves tonight, where's merrick garland? where's the fbi? where are all of those people that have been lecturing us that domestic terrorism is the number one threat in this country today? they must be busy monitoring those moms and dads daring to speak out at school board meetings. where is the investigation into these acts of violence along with the estimated, what, 574 riots in the summer of 2020? dozens dead, thousands of cops injured and billions of property damage. here to react is texas senator ted cruz.
senator, let's go through this again, shall we? any anti-choice group that closes their doors and stops operating will no longer be a target but until you do, it is open season, and we know where your operations are. it sounds a lot like chuck schumer. you won't know what hit you. >> look, unfortunately today's democratic party is controlled by the radicals. they're the party of criminals. they're the party of violence. they're the party of riots. they're the party of threats and destruction. um, this radical group that is threatening terrorist conduct -- let's be clear -- they're threatening to attack, to burn, to murder people -- and by the way, at pregnancy centers, pregnancy resource centers, these are centers that are helping moms who are pregnant with children to give birth to those children and these radicals hate the fact anyone would help a mom. the radicals claim to be pro-women but they don't want to help a mom who is
pregnant with a child actually give birth to the child and deliver the child into this world so they're going to fire bomb the clinic or the hospital she would go to, and the terrifying thing, sean, is this happens with the encouragement, with the acquiescence of the democratic party. look -- >> sean: just as important, i want your take, when chuck schumer went on the steps of the u.s. supreme court and threatened two supreme court justice and said, "you won't know what hit you," was that a threat when you intimidate and harass and give out the addresses of justices and the names of the schools that their kids attend, and the churches that they attend, and the times that they attend church... isn't that a threat? intimidation? harassment? don't we have laws against that, senator? >> absolutely, yes! the democrat party today is the party of mob violence. they're the party that schumer knew what he was saying when he said you
unleash the whirlwind. he was unleashing the radicals. look at this lawless very likely left-wing law clerk that leaked the decision. the reason the decision was leaked was to allow threats and bullly toking come at the justices. listen, a week ago, we saw a supreme court justice, justice brett kavanaugh threaten and a man arrested for attempted murder. why? because the left wing radicals knew where his home was and the white house was encouraging those radicals to go to his home where they were threatening his children. it's been a week, and joe biden still has not condemned the attempted murder of a sitting supreme court justice. let's be clear, why do they want to murder that supreme court justice? because they're willing to essentially commit a revolution, an insurrection to use their favorite term, against a branch of government because they want to change the vote on a pending decision of the supreme court. it is shameless, and it is also a violation of criminal law. the federal criminal law makes it a crime to go and
protest at the home of a judge while he's considering a case and merrick garland has become perhaps the most political attorney general in the history of this country. he's willing to weaponnize the department of justice and fbi to target parents as domestic terrorists, but he refuses to enforce the law against the people flagrantly violating the law, and jen psaki at the white house encourages people, go and protest at the justices' houses. let me ask you, sean, in all of your years of watching and being involved in national politics v you ever seen a white house press secretary from the white house urge americans to commit a federal crime? well, you have today! >> sean: never! not once! no, sir! i will tell you -- we're just out of time, senator, but i got to till something, we don't have equal justice under the law anymore. we don't have equal application. we have one set of rules for the democrats and if you're a conservative and you get caught j-walking or spitting
on the sidewalk, you'll probably spend five years in jail. you'll have a predawn raid, guns drawn and fake news cnn cameras. that's the way it works. senator, good to have you. thanks for being with us. all right, straight ahead tonight, democratic lawmakers, far left media mobs starting to turn on joe biden, an interesting turn. why is it happening? piers morgan joins us next.

>> sean: now the election warning sirens for democrats are growing louder and louder tonight as concerns about biden's stamina, his cognitive abilities, well now, even his fellow democrats are fueling gouts a 2024 run. now, recently former senior obama adviser, david axlerod, not a dumb guy, he said biden's
age will be a "major issue in 2024." even over fake news cnn, first it was don lemon, now it's van jones and he said this about joe biden's struggles. take a look. >> everybody is looking very closely now. i -- when biden does well, he does really well. that gun speech he gave, he was perfect. it was powerful. when he does badly, when he stumbles, you get nervous, and you wonder is it just a stutter? is he tired or something else there? so i think people just looking -- i mean, honestly, i think a lot of democrats are like, if this guy is ready to go, we're behind him but if he's not ready to go, you should let us know. >> sean: get this the daily caller asked the 50 senate democrats if they were supporting a biden run in 2024. only five democrats got back to them and said yes. that means a whopping 45 senate democrats, they didn't want to respond and wouldn't definitively say they were behind joe biden. of course, democrats across the washington sewer and swamp,
well, they see exactly what we've been saying night after night. joe biden is physically weak and frail and he's a cognitive wreck. now, remember, it's not just about age. bernie sanders is around the same age, a little older, i think, and he's as sharp as he's ever been. it's about stamina, mental acuity, being able to carry out the day-to-day duties as commander-in-chief, which i would argue is the toughest job in the world. all right, here with reaction to all of this he's the host of "uncensored" piers morgan. that's what i love about you. you're shy, demure and quiet and you hardly ever get loud or share opinions or any of that. um, i'm interested from this point: so only this week did fake news cnn -- your former employer -- acknowledge have liberals like don lemon acknowledged the obvious, biden's frail and a cognitive
mess. that's obvious to me. i've been saying this since the campaign in the beginning, i was criticized for pointing out what was obvious. what do people across the pond think about joe biden? >> honestly, they think he's asleep at the wheel to be honest. watch joe biden videos from 20 years ago. compare to how he performed then to how he performs in public now. there's been a rapid deterioration in his mobility and in the way that talks. also in the way that he's consistent with the stuff that he says. one minute he's saying one thing. then the white house reigns back and then he's got to reign back the reign back. it's timing. this guy is leader of the free world, president of the united states. he's nearly half way through his tenure of the first term of office. the idea frankly he would even contemplate a second term is unthinkable. i don't think there's a cat in
hell's chance the democrats will let joe biden run again, because they know how damaging this is going to be. when he gets to the midterms, i think the democrats are going to get an absolute kicking. a lot of that will be on joe biden. it'll be a repudiation of his presidency. so the idea that they will then ride from the midterms into some glorious comeback where he's deemed to be an election winner in 2024, i think it's for the birds. >> sean: boris johnson has his own problems. i was shocked. i mean, americans, when joe biden became president, we were paying on average about $2.39 for a gallon of gasoline. now, the national average is over $5 a gallon. a 40-year high of inflation. i couldn't believe -- you guys pay on average almost $8.50, the equivalent of $8.50 for gallon of gas there. you have the same problems over there that we have over here as it relates to inflation. is it the policies of boris
johnson? are they similar to joe biden? obviously, we have more natural resources we could be tapping into, natural gas and oil. why we're not doing it, i can't give you a good answer except it's insanity to me. >> well, we have the same issues in a way in the sense that boris johnson is being pulled towards green energy at a time when it -- when the whole world is being held ransom by vladimir putin in the war in ukraine. the uk and the u.s. need to generate their own energy. at this time, you have green lobby groups pulling them away for what they instinctively know is the right thing to do. fracking is something we should be doing a hell of a lot more of in the uk and in america, but it's not happening because of the environmental lobbying groups who are determined to try to get fracking outlawed. joe biden, remember, was the guy before he got to become president in the candidate podium speeches he was giving, he kept saying, "i'm going to be
at war with energy companies! we're going to end fossil fuels!" he was at war with oil and gas and all of this kind of stuff. day one, canceled the keystone pipeline. he made it very clear, oil and gas producers, you are the enemy! now he's going cap and hand to them with a letter begging them for ideas on how to save his presidency frankly from these alarming spikes in gas prices. and where's he going next month? he's going to the very place that he said as a candidate he was going to make saudi arabia the pariah they deserve to be. where is he going next month? he's going to saudi arabia to tap the hands and kiss the ring of the saudis to beg for more oil from them to try to counter what is going on! not completely unconnected to what is happening with ukraine. that's not the only reason. gas prices in america were rising significantly before the war in ukraine. once again, joe biden is blaming everybody but himself. at some point, a president has to be accountable for his own
policies! a lot of what is going on in the pump in america and in britain with boris johnson is down to the leadership of the people in charge of the countries. >> sean: piers, always shy and demure and always lacking opinions. we love having you. thank you for being here. >> ha-ha. great to talk to you, sean. all the best. >> sean: up next, after the push of the covid vaccine on you, the american public, and getting a shot, second shot, one booster and go boosters, yes, dr. flip-flop fauci tested positive for covid. we'll check in with dr. oz and senate candidate from pennsylvania as he joins us next. straight ahead. (♪ ♪)
>> sean: all right, also developing tonight, the twice-boosted dr. fauci has tested positive for covid we wish dr. fauci a speedy recovery. we never wish ill on anyone. we're sincere in that belief. i've seen the worst of this. i wouldn't wish this on my worst enemy. but, remember, it was fauci himself who said, "if you get that vaccine -- that eventually became mandated that joe said he wouldn't mandate -- you're not going to get coronavirus." you know, telling people with natural immunity they still gotta get the shot. now, the cdc is actually saying that people that are boostered have a greater likelihood of getting the current variant of covid, va-2, omicron 2. listen to fauci, though, in his own words. take a look. >> if you get vaccinated after you get infected, your level of protection will go sky high and then you won't have to worry about getting infected again. >> sean: also remember, it was biden who said in july of 2021
that you're not going to get covid if you get these vaccines which was completely wrong. take a look. >> the various shots that people are getting now cover that. you're ok. you're not going to get covid if you have these vaccinations. >> sean: yeah, they were all wrong. any way, here with reaction is republican nominee for senate in the great commonwealth of pennsylvania, dr. oz is with us. um, well, dr. hannity does have a recommendation, even though joe biden nor anthony fauci talk a lot about monoclonal antibodies. i would recommend the eli lilly version. that seems to be the monoclonal antibody of choice for this particular variant. if he doesn't like that option, he can go with the anti-viral paxlovid where people are doing pretty well when they take it. your thoughts, the real dr. o dis. >> dr. hannity, your judgment is
sound. i think paxlovid, medication, makes sense for older americans at higher risk if they get covid. i pray for dr. fauci's rapid recovery. as you pointed out, it's a miserable disease. it's not whether covid is good or bad. everyone agrees it's horrible. it's what are you going do about it? government overreach becomes more about control more than health. this is an endemic virus. we'll all get it eventually, hopefully with medications like we now have available, you can treat people who get the illness, and you don't have to have mandates that reflect overreaching government penalties if they don't make us safer. by using medications, you mentioned, too, the antiviral pills make a lot of sense because it's fairly easy to administer. it's five days. most people do well with it. you can reduce side effects and complications and get on with your life. that should be how we treat illnesses going forward. we try to prevent illnesses. when people get sick, you treat them. two years into this pandemic, we didn't do the latter.
>> sean: i'll never listen to the nih, cdc or dr. fauci or biden ever again! you had a very tough primary. you had very strong candidates you went up against. you won that race in pennsylvania. what's interesting to me is that i think of all of the senate races, yours will be the biggest choice election of any state, any senate race in this cycle. you go on up against a bernie sanders clone, and he even says it. tell us how this race will break down? we have a little over a minute. >> well, real fast, this gentleman endorsed bernie sanders and said they're the two most progressive candidates in the country. it's a stark contrast in what i believe in. he believes in sending trillions of more dollars on far left agenda items. i believe in no more reckless spending. he believes we should stifle energy and innovation in america. i believe it's an all-of-the-above strategy. he believes we should release
1/3 of the prison population in pennsylvania while we're in the middle of a crime wave in philadelphia. i believe we should keep our streets safe. he believes in open boredners sanctuary cities. i believe in a secure border. there's a big difference between the two of us. he's bankful of a lot of money. my competition endorsed me thankfully but he had no competition. he bank rolled a lot of money. if you're worried about him, you should be. go to doctor,oz.com and chip in. we can take him down if we can get the word out. >> sean: in pennsylvania, in georgia in particular, i'd like to see a unity rally in both states. i think it's needed. i think it'll go a long way to help a republican in the general. quick yes or no? do you agree? >> completely agree! we're all on the same team. let's do it for america. we need the middle, too. we need the moderates and conservative democrats to come on board. >> sean: dr. z thank you for being with us.
