6:00 pm
>> tucker: we told you, it occurred to us that whatever happened to the fbi investigation into joy reid's antigay blog? the original don't say gay blog. going to follow up on that soon. we'll see you tomorrow. >> sean: welcome to "hannity." tonight we began with a fox news alert. a new poll shows surprisingly shockingly two-thirds of americans want actor will smith arrested after he slapped chris rock for making a joke about his wife. this as new video has just emerged showing smith making fun of a bald person shaved head a few years ago. we'll get to that in a moment. we begin tonight with another day of a biden administration's attempt to clean up joe's
6:01 pm
disastrous trip abroad and it's not going well. our current president is a walking talking liability to the country, the world, and its seriousness in these times, extraordinarily dangerous. in case you are keeping track while in europe, suggesting that our u.s. soldiers will soon be on the ground in ukraine. forgot the name of this secretary defense yet again and referred to in the secretary of state. several hours choking on a spicy piece of pizza. falsely claimed that soldiers were training ukrainian forces in poland but he said that biden cannot remain in power, his handlers had to clean up and say this is not the position of the administration. pretty much said the same thing yesterday. biden staffers think they are clever prayer they are providing the president of the
6:02 pm
united states with daily cheat sheets featuring one sentence answers to the most simple, the most basic questions about joe's own policies. and yesterday, joe did his very best to read. do you see the little cue card, did his best to read from the sheets. >> i want to make it clear, i then or now articulating policy change me i was expressing outrage i feel. >> you do feel that vladimir putin should be removed from power. >> i was just expression what i said. >> tucker: good >> sean: good job, write it all by himself. he did good. let me ask you, what kind president needs a note card to answer a basic and predictable question like this for the truth is, i'll say it, i was right before the election, joe biden is not well, he is not confident, he's so cognitively
6:03 pm
weak that his own staffers are trying to stop them from going off script, frankly i agree with. it's a necessary protection in these perilous times. almost everything he says is poorly read from a teleprompter or these new notecards, almost all the questions that he has taken by the media mob are preselected by white house staffers and still despite all of this assistance, joe is struggling worse than ever. the past couple of weeks have been really, really bad. just a quick reminder. >> the woman the reason why the secretaryof , sending u.s. troops, from the united states. >> the first lady's husband contracting covid. but look at this room and look at what you see. [laughter]
6:04 pm
that's right. she's fine. [laughter] it's me. for a mom to get her kid on the internet to do her homework... i mean, for real! this law is going to put an end to all that. going to put us on a much different position to determine their own judgments. the proud ukrainian people, the proud proud people ready to fight every inch they have. >> sean: we hold these truths self evident, all men, women are created evil. you know, that thing. the creator of everything. sadly at this point it's not
6:05 pm
even shocking. point, it's not even shocking, i have been warning you about his obvious cognitive decline since he came on the scene to run the election and what we are seeing is not new except, it appears to be getting progressively and dramatically worse. you decide. ♪ ♪ speak of the political coverage. um, some of the political players and some of the ellipse let me ask you a rhetorical question. no, anyway. >> sean: this isn't funny. according to a brand-new poll, john mcglocklin, nearly 60% of americans want both john biden and nancy pelosi to undergo cognitive testing. by the way, kamala harris, she's
6:06 pm
got her own train wrecks to deal with. how many times has president trump been on this program, either satellite, in person, on phone, how many times has he talked for 40, 45 uninterrupted minutes? he's always very well informed on any topic i bring up, fully, completely engaged, up-to-date, energetic, articulate, and smart as hell? i'll take the smart guy that is tough, that the world for years, with the mean tweets, i'll take him back any day. so would most americans by the way. look at this new poll. trump is bouncing, trouncing them and only if the election were held today. meanwhile some recent poll shows a whopping 70% of americans are not confident about joe biden's ability to manage this crisis in ukraine. the same poll found that biden's approval ratings are now at an all-time low with americans worried about record high inflation, a 40-year high,
6:07 pm
record high gas prices, you've never paid more, and the instability abroad. but in the ivory tower, biden's protectors over at msnbc, they just can't seem to grasp why joseph poll numbers are so low. why is this happening? >> charlie, i wanted to explain that to us. i just reigned on some significant, hard evidence, positive, that we are experiencing, why doesn't he experience and benefits in the polls? >> we are politically divided country and this is the united states of anxiety. >> sean: not to be outdone, the so-called journalists on fake news cnn don lemon had this to say about joe's disaster of a trip to europe. take a look at. >>. is saying exactly what most of the world feels about vladimir putin. he did not in that speech say that vladimir putin should be removed, that we are going to take them out of power.
6:08 pm
he said this man should not remain in power. quite frankly, i think this is a media-manufactured story, and the media -- it is in the media's interpretation. >> sean: oh, media-manufactured crisis. according to fake news cnn, wonr nobody washes that network. meanwhile tom brokaw believes that, guess what, fox news is to blame for putin's hostile invasion of ukraine, the bee stings, feeling sad, blame trump. if there is an invasion by putin, blame trump. take a look. >> from the beginning, putin has been an invader, thought he could run over ukraine while president biden is in an act -- this political organization. >> sean: tommy, why didn't he do it when trump was president? i've a question question for you, tom, are you proud about af the lies, all of the conspiracy
6:09 pm
theories peddled by your nbc news about that phony trump-russia collusion that never happened? because your silence is deafening. and at the end of the day, the media mob, can try to protect joe biden and pass the blame, but me, the american people, we are not done, we are not stupid, we don't need giant notecards to perform basic and simple tasks. we don't spend long weekends in delaware recovering from the exhaust of workweek of one public event, less than one a day. we don't need help remembering names, states, on a daily basis. that is joe biden. that is your president. he is clearly and sadly not up to the job. here with reaction, host of "unfiltered" dan bunching along with cohost of "the five," geraldo rivera. normally would start with you, because i know what you are going to say here is really going to piss off dan, but be counterintuitive, going to start with dan and let dan make his
6:10 pm
case first. dan? >> listen, this is a real problem. the 25th amendment stuff that was laughingly, hysterically evoked in the trump hero, you may not have liked trump, but he was certainly out there. sean, we have to think about this stuff. the menacing cognitive decline, it's evident by just watching and observing him. the problem we have with this as it's causing a genuine national security crisis. everybody out there has been widely reported, vladimir putin is horrified about being deposed, he watches the video of muammar qaddafi and his horrific death, all of the time, every that could happen to him. also well known, sean, he has a version, putin, that is, to communicating via modern technology, cell phones, et cetera, and aversion to computers and looking up internet stories.
6:11 pm
you can just assume that putin has a full portfolio of information and is fully aware that when joe biden said, you know, we've got to get this guy, he can't remain in power, that putin is not interpreting that to mean that the united states is supporting that too. dana perino said, i think on "the five," they still think -- really, joe biden scabs, i'm a republican , not pretending to be nonpartisan, but this guy is causing a genuine national security crisis in the united states by not being all there. >> sean: one last question and will bring in geraldo. you and i shared notes on the air, dan, and off the air, and both of us have sources that have been around joe biden. you have the same until i have, that it is even worse than what we are seeing publicly. that is what i have been told by people that have been around him. what have you heard from the people you know that have been
6:12 pm
around him? >> you know, and it's not the sources he would put -- i don't want to say too much, you know what i'm talking about, not the people you think it is. yes, i've heard this from not just one but multiple people, that the situation cognitively with biden, 100% correct, far worse than even you and i are letting on here, which is really, really bad news, and grates a very unsafe situation. united states. your 100% correct. >> sean: now, geraldo, you are a dear friend, i can play your tape, i played it on the show, joe biden 2007, 2008, 2016. the guy i see today is not the guy that even left office in early 2017. do you not see it and do you not sense that this is a real clear, present danger for national security for us and also for the world? >> he is only eight months older than i am, dear friend sean.
6:13 pm
i'm a young 78. the difference -- >> sean: it you can if you want. >> remember what he said. "for god's sake, this man cannot remain in power." that's one of the most powerful ad-libs given in recent memory. "for god's sake, this man" -- >> sean: he walked it right back, he took it back, they took it back. >> because, that's my next point, it's not u.s. policy to remove putin from power. when he speaks, the assumption is that he speaks u.s. i'm merely saying that anyone of us, i was a long time war correspondent. when you see these little babies who are killed them a maternity wards, bombs, thousands of
6:14 pm
thousands of people that have been raped, robbed, and murdered, country have occupied. you can't say, for god's sakes, this man cannot be forgiven if you are not the president of the united states. >> sean: all of ronald reagan's advisors took out the light, took charge and put it in there. that's what is what a leader does. joe says, i can't take questions because if i do my staff is going to get really, really mad at me and everything. does he really project strength on you, that's not strength to me, geraldo. i will say this about you, you are as sharp as you are as you were 20 years ago when i met you on your tv show. >> 26 weeks ago, i'll never forget that. the thing about donald trump and ronald reagan, they both use cue cards.
6:15 pm
there were stories at the time. our old friend sam donaldson exposed reagan's use of cue cards but donald trump famously after i was visiting him in mar-a-lago -- >> sean: do you not acknowledge any cognitive decline? >> why doing this? i don't know about that. the mustache still points up. i'm doing fine. i want everyone to understand that the enormity of what biden has done makes understandable the very human reaction of the president of the united states. >> sean: geraldo... >> he said fight or die. >> sean: it's cumulative. dan bongino? big i don't disagree with the premise here. yes, he was right to be angry at this global atrocity going on right now.
6:16 pm
he's the president of the united states. he can afford to have what we call these human emotion slip-ups when the potential is a miscalculation and an escalation into a global thermonuclear war! when your cute card says tell everyone you are outraged. if i start making fun of your kids, you don't need a cue card to say, dan, shut your mouth, i'm really pissed off i don't mind cue cards. >> sean: i've got to run. >> q outrage? come on. give me a break. >> sean: geraldo, let me tell you. if joe biden had your cognitive strength which is the same as 28 years ago when i first met you,
6:17 pm
we'd be fine for joe would be fine cognitively. he's not. thank you both very good news tonight. seven months away from the midterm elections. according to multiple polls, republicans are poised to take back the house. hopefully the senate also which would be a little harder. as i said many times, i take nothing for granted. the only way to send a message to biden and pelosi, schumer, and kamala harris, and the religious climate alarmist colt in the new green deal socialist is to vote. everyone in america you will play a key role. we are all spokes and a wheel on election day and come up by the way, take a look. that's why it's so troubling to nancy pelosi. >> i fear for our democracy. we can't let that happen. democracy is on the ballot in november.
6:18 pm
>> sean: the republic is in the balance and i do not think pelosi is worried about democracy than she is about her own job. house minority leader kevin mccarthy. can't think of anything that joe biden has done that he has help the american people. can you? >> no. all he's done is make every crisis even worse. look at the budget that he just produced. they say the budget is about the value but never a once does he mention the inflation crisis, the border crisis, the debt crisis, nor does he mention parents. he mentions that climate crisis 33 times. he mentions tax, fees, penalties 120 times bridget shows where their values are and how unserious they are. but what's worse about this budget, talking about gasoline prices so high? he taxes $45 billion for anybody doing energy production.
6:19 pm
what does that mean? america gets punished, your gasoline prices go higher, and our enemies around the world that produce oil and gas are going to make taxpayers pay for that. >> the one thing that's very consistent that i hear from listeners on my radio show, and it's from all over the country. 675 stations. i get a wide variety of people from all over the country and they are all saying the same thing. they want republicans to fight. i want you to assure them that if they elect the republicans and you became speaker, how hard are you guys going to fight and how committed will you be to promises you make. that's what i hear from every body. >> more than 100%, sean. newt gingrich was there. we just did i retreat in florida, building our commitment to america. where the border will be secured. where america will be energy independent, not just energy independent but dominant.
6:20 pm
we will curb the inflation that the democrats have brought forward, balance the budget to be able to move forward. not only is it a commitment, hold our feet to the fire. we are making this pledge to every single person across america. we believe that you should know what we will do if you addressed entrustus with the majority pitd time with mit the last couple of days. why? we are looking to make sure how america is america's next century, how we can compete with china. our focus on american jobs, american security, american prosperity. >> sean: will americans be able to stop this record high budget proposal that would even have unrealized gains but money we don't even have come a money it didn't even make them adjust estimates for what they think they will make. will republicans stop this, the biggest budget in the history of this country with the biggest deficit in the history of the
6:21 pm
country? >> we can stop it but we need your help. you just watch nancy pelosi's sit and cry that if republicans take the majority that democracy will end. all she cares about is power. the democrats' first bill was to change election laws so they stay in power. i need everybody who listens to you and watches you to go to fire helmick join us so we can turn america to the direction we all praised, we have secure borders, energy independence, we'll curb this inflation, we'll build more jobs and parents will have more say in a kids' education. >> sean: donald trump showed how the republican party is supposed to fight. i hope everybody is willing to fight, the principles make america great again, america first, reagan conservatism. it works. we were a lot better off. kevin mccarthy, thank you. aoc joining the radical calls for supreme court justice clarence thomas to resign

6:24 pm
6:25 pm
6:26 pm
quit the court are being impeached. okay. let's just stop for one second. if this is the new standard, if you want to hold justice thomas
6:27 pm
accountable for something that someone in his family did, will that apply to joe and hunter? i think it has to apply. or is it the usual one rule for democrats and another rule for everybody else? also ask yourself why have democrats been so silent on biden's own supreme court nominee judge ketanji brown jackson and her troubling legacy of leniency on child porn offenses. the white house left out details in key materials related to the senate judiciary committee. the white house says the case was unintentionally left out. i don't buy it. senate republicans, they are not buying it. here to explain more, republican senator from missouri josh hawley. i'm not buying it. explain the case so everybody understands. >> we have yet another child
6:28 pm
porn case, and any time judge jackson had any discretion on the court, she gave these offenders less than the federal sentencing guidelines recommended, less than the prosecutors recommended and a lot of times she went lower than the probation office which is a pretty liberal recommendation, lower than they recommended and every time we find out more about it we find out she's been soft on criminals, soft on child porn offenders. of course the white house leaving out information and trying to mislead and dissemble because it's just a fact that this is a woke judge who has been soft on crime and that's not the kind of person we need on the bench. >> sean: do you look at the votes as they are lining up, do you see any republican supporting her? looks like mitt romney well. do you see any democrats opposing her? >> i hope the republicans stand together and say that this kind of judge is not who we need. this is someone who has a now established record, just beyond argument at this point,
6:29 pm
established record of being solved on criminals, particularly offenders. the criminals of all stripes. i hope republicans will stand together and i hope the voters will get a chance to weigh in on this, sean, when they say in november that this is the kind of judge that joe biden wanted on the u.s. supreme court, another soft on crime judge. >> sean: let's look at biden's budget, the largest tax hike so far in the history of the country. joe biden and the socialist democrats, they would like to tax what they call unrealized gains. if you own stock and let's say april 15th comes around and you are going to file your taxes and the stock is at, let's say $40. okay. you aren't selling the stock. it's not again until you sell the stock. let's say that by the tame down my time you sell it, it's 20 bucks. i don't like the stock market for that reason.
6:30 pm
for me, a lot of gambling involved. is this going to pass the largest tax hike in history and it doesn't even include the monies we need for ukraine military? >> it also includes taxes on energy producers in the united states. this is unbelievable for me. joe biden won't let us produce in the united states but he shuts down america's pipeline and the answer is to tax american energy and all the other taxes you are talking about on top of it? a guy who doesn't know what he's talking about, policies are 180 degrees going on and i'm just willing to bet that when the american people finally get a chance to win link in november, turn the exact opposite direction. >> let's go to the case of clarence thomas. okay. clarence thomas 'his wife has opinions. issue not free to express them? i think it would be natural that people who are dating, married, that there are probably a number
6:31 pm
of issues that people disagree on and the issues they agree on. if that's the case, that's the standard that democrats want to set, wouldn't they applied to joe biden, hunter biden and the laptop and wouldn't joe equally have to be impeached themselves or be recused as they try to do for clarence thomas? >> yeah, i look forward to all the calls from joe biden's recommendations on exactly the same logic you just outlined. it looks increasingly likely that i guess the president needs to resign from that. here's the bottom line. ridiculous committees attacks on justice thomas and the idea that ginni thomas, his wife, is supposed to sign off on her text in her work with her husband, as if he's in charge of her some way, isn't that my sergeant knee, isn't that what the democrats are saying they are against? the truth is they will take any avenue they can to try and smear justice thomas and republicans have got to stand up against it and say we are not going to let
6:32 pm
you rake the supreme court, which is what they are trying to do. >> sean: jenny thomas given political opinions, hunter biden making opinions of all these countries, china, kazakhstan. oh, the first lady in moscow, the former first lady, 3.5 billion in barre's mom. no experience in oil and energy in ukraine. jenny thomas gave an opinion and if you don't like it, too bad. thank you for being with us. straight-ahead tonight. we will bring you the latest details on the will smith incident. a lot of huge developments tonight. two shocking polls taken after the slap heard around the world. guess what? a lot of people want smith to coat to jail. pam bondi next.
6:33 pm
6:34 pm
6:35 pm
6:36 pm
6:37 pm
>> sean: still a lot to chatter all across hollywood tonight over will smith's oscar slap, the slap heard around the world as the academy, a former review of the incident where the full board of governors will determine the severity of any consequences. submit the posture his wife raised eyebrows with this cryptic post, this is the season of healing and i'm here for it. last night, smith did apologize. but i want you to think about this question tonight. a lot of these celebrities, they go out, i'm sorry, i apologize... do you think these are real? our most liberty apologies real? first, you've got to know this but he did not write all this himself is my best guess. you have a room full of woke millionaires come up by the way, just to start with.
6:38 pm
we shouldn't care, but we do. what do you think went on behind the scenes before that statement went up and what goes into crafting a high profile apology? publicists usually, can't say for sure, but usually heavily involved, probably several rounds, you've got to say it this way might take this word up with her. hey, here, a period there, et cetera and et cetera. understand this is an effort for, what, in most cases? is it that they are sincere and apologetic or is it to keep their career intact and be able to make more movies and more money? i will let you decide. i know what goes on behind the scenes in most cases, i do like to give people the benefit of the doubt when it comes to apologies. look at your screen. will smith actually slapped another guy about ten years ago in moscow.
6:39 pm
the reporter turned out to be a prankster apparently tried to kiss him on the red carpet. this is back in 2012, this little slap here. did he ever apologize for that slap? a resurfaced clip, 1991, smith had this to say about a bald man. take a look. >> if you'd like to say one more thing about my mom, i'll give you the opportunity because i'm the host and you are my guest. >> at least my mom was in supercuts. this mom so bald, sleeping on the pillow. >> will smith! will be right back. >> sean: did he say his mom is so bald... take a look at this. a new poll says you, the american people, say that smith should actually be arrested for slapping chris rock. here with reaction, fox news contributor miranda devine along with former general pam bondi. i'm a little old school. i go back to a time where we
6:40 pm
played sports, we dropped our hockey gloves, we play basketball, football, we have a fight and we go back playing again. this is an average day for me. but if you talk about some of somebody's mother, sister, girlfriend, family member, you might open yourself, where i grew up, getting involved in a little conflict like that. your thoughts? >> this was in front of millions of people on live tv and chris rock is a comedian and he says stupid things. that's what comedians assay. will smith got up there and punched him unprovoked, unprovoked, and he committed a battery. chris rock didn't want to prosecute. it's not what you do, it's what you do next. once will smith got up on live tv and apologized, he never apologized to chris rock. standing by the academy and the
6:41 pm
guests. >> sean: i thought he did apologize. >> in the written apology later. he did come a much later when the publicist and everyone else i'm sure got involved. but right afterwards, he did not apologize to chris rock. having said that, in california they don't prosecute misdemeanors anyway. >> sean: miranda, i don't care that much about celebrities. i'm not the biggest... i will read page six because i love your paper in "the new york post." daily mail has a lot of good gossip there. but here's my point. everything i've read is apparently they have an open marriage. i don't know for sure. whatever these hollywood people do, i could care less. that's my honest opinion. it's what's odd is assuming it's true that he'd be okay with another guy sleeping with his wife but not a comic telling a joke about his wife. does that seem odd to you? >> look, sean, i think the myth
6:42 pm
of an open marriage being somehow not according emotional distress, obviously will smith is not secure in his wife's love. i think and let you know, that pole or a couple of polls that have been taken today show that most of the public, you know, a small minority, especially women, are actually on will smith's side rather than chris rock's side. i've seen, what i relate to is this sort of desire for a lost age of chivalry and this sort of primal appeal of a man going into battle to defend his woman. and i think that, you know, women sort of crave that and even though it was done in a really repulsive way and it was an embarrassment to the oscars. the oscar used to be the people
6:43 pm
of glamour and a celebration of the great art of cinema and hollywood and it has just degenerated into something that is like a modern day jerry springer. that's very sad. i think it's sad for our debased culture. it's just a symptom of it. >> sean: second lowest rated oscars in history. i would argue that hollywood will never be what it once was, hollywood for all intents and purposes is dead especially with all the new content streaming options people have. pam, same question that i asked miranda. is it odd to you, i assume those stories are true. people say it's true. i don't know for sure. but if it is true, does that seem strange to you? that strikes me as a very strange moral compass, if you will. >> it does because one of the comedians, one of the female comedians earlier made a joke about that. when she was having all the
6:44 pm
single men come up on stage and she said, will smith, you come up too. you are married but your wife doesn't care. she made a joke about it and he was fine with that joke. yet then he goes after chris rock? i don't know what was going on there. the bottom line is in california, they don't press a toprosecute crimes anyway. think about all the time to talk about the d.a. not prosecuting crime. chris rock to the right thing saying he doesn't want to prosecute. let it go away -- >> sean: in fairness to him he handled it as perfectly as anybody could. >> me too. >> sean: some people don't think it's real. i think it's very real. he recovered, he was a pro. my response would have been a little different but we'll discuss that another night. pam, miranda, thank you. >> sean: you would've want to fight also. >> i train every day. coming up in a way you see what whoopi goldberg, our president,
6:45 pm
says about will smith and why she thought it was right not to remove smith from the show. joe concha, leo 2.0 terrell terrel, they react next. straight ahead. grandma's gonna love it!

6:46 pm
6:47 pm
large out-of-state corporations have set their sights on california. they've written a ballot proposal to allow online sports betting. they tell us it will fund programs for the homeless, but read the fine print.
6:48 pm
90% of the profits go to out-of-state corporations, leaving almost nothing for the homeless. no real jobs are created here. but the promise between our state and our sovereign tribes would be broken forever. these out-of-state corporations don't care about california. but we do. stand with us.
6:49 pm
>> sean: of course, the media mob can't help but try to make this will smith story about something more than a slap. as whoopi goldberg said on the view, it was the right decision to not escort smith out of the award show because of his race. take a look. you decide. >> the reason people got up and went over to him because, i think a lot of people thought, my god, is he having a break, do we need to get him out? what do we need to do. the reason they didn't go and take him out is because that
6:50 pm
would have been another 15-20 minute explanation of why we are taking the black man out. five seconds before they are about to decide whether he has won and oscar or not. >> sean: let's be clear. will smith was wrong. there are many other ways he should have, could have handled this. but at the same time when you go after someone's family, comics have free reign to say whatever they want. the gloves came off. as i said earlier, where i grew up, we fought almost every day and talking schiff, as in adam schiff, about family would start a fight. all this toxic masculinity, whatever that means anyway pay but that honestly how i grew up. he was caught up in the passion of the moment. felt the urge to defend his wife who is clearly obviously annoyed. he himself laughed at first. with reaction, fox news contributor's joe concha -- he
6:51 pm
should have his own show. and leo 20 terrel leo 2.0 terrell. the second lowest rated oscars ever. they want to beat themselves up? that's their problem. doesn't care too much for me, it was kind of entertaining. >> you mention the ratings, right? second lowest ratings. in terms what this means, ten years ago, sean, 40 million people tuned into the oscars. "the kings speech" won that year. 57 million people tuned in. you are talking about 42 million people watching this year. the reason why is because this thing has become insufferable. if i want to see the host attack ron desantis, i'll tune in the cnn, no problem. we've gone from billy crystal to amy schumer as far as the host.

the all right and glamour you mention is no longer around at this point. look, we even saw this week because now, we've gone to lunacy completely, that donald trump is being blamed for will smith actions. not by howard stern, not the guy who started the linking project. a former fbi agent, they are saying trump made him do it. that's where we are at by this point. here is the bottom line. let's say an actor like james woods had done what will smith had, i'm certain he would have been removed from that event immediately. but smith did what he did and was allowed to sit back down and stay for the remainder of the show. they had time to figure this out of what the right course of action is in people who produce live events had zero idea of what to do. i wonder what does the president, what kind of precedent is being set. >> sean: as an attorney, if i was involved, what do you think

would happen? >> i'm going to be very clear because whoopi goldberg needs to be put back in the timeout box. if sean hannity or joe concha... >> we know you have a problem with whoopi. go ahead. >> why did she got to bring up a race? you asked me to question, you would've gone to jail, joe would've gone to jail. if i would've done it, whoopi wouldn't have thrown me a lifeline. i would've gone to jail. the reason is quite simple. will smith is part of the hollywood elite! so he gets a pass. they like him. he makes money for them. and so that's why she threw him a lifeline. grace is not an issue in this case? >> i really like chris rock. chris rock is one of my favorite comedians. larry the cable guy... i have a lot of favorites. i love comedians who are free to say anything. and i think they have the right

to do it. he took that shot and, again, as pam bondi pointed out earlier in the show, somebody made a joke about this rumor or truth about an open marriage, that didn't bother him? i don't get that part. >> no. i'll tell you right now. it's because of the fact that when will smith look at jada and she looked upset, he decided to play the husband. it's fake, not real. chris rock is the victim, a black man, and whoopi goldberg throws a lifeline to will smith. >> sean: joe, what your reaction to that? >> chris rock, we are all in agreement that he handled this as well as you could, he didn't go back at him. and now he's benefited seriously from this, sean bear the tickets for his comedy show before this war going for 50 bucks before this incident happened. now they are going for $350,
6:55 pm
right? chris rock still hasn't responded to will smith apologizing. he apologized twice, once without saying anything to chris rock, once to instagram bit i would think will smith if he wants to show he's a real man, pick up a phone or go visit chris rock and apologize personally and maybe that's why we haven't heard from chris rock at this point. that's very true, the guy who got hit, the guy who likes to talk a lot as a comedian, he hasn't said anything yet. i wonder why that is. >> i would've gone to jail. >> sean: look, i used to love the bay street bullies, it was the greatest time in hockey. they dropped the gloves. they started playing again. thanks, guys. more "hannity" next.
