On Thursday evening, Sean Hannity, the former Fox News host, challenged Vivek Ramaswamy on his remarks regarding Nikki Haley’s comments about Hamas’ surprise attack against Israel last weekend.

During an interview with Tucker Carlson that was posted on Tuesday, Ramaswamy had suggested that Haley might be profiteering off of the war.

In response to this allegation, Hannity quoted the business entrepreneur and pushed back against him.

Ramaswamy defended himself by stating that he thought it was wrong what happened to Israel and believed some people were on the right side and wrong side of a conflict.

“But the selective nature of ignoring certain other conflicts, while even more importantly ignoring the interests of the U.S. right here at home is what irritates the heck out of me,” he continued, adding the dig about Haley.

“I don’t think she’s a child. I think that she is somebody that, like many politicians, is in a position to get wealthier from war,” he said.

After reviewing those comments, Hannity brought Ramaswamy onto the show.

“What you’re doing here is — saying about Nikki Haley, is you’re saying that her concern for Israel is driven by financial and a corrupting influence,” Hannity said. “And your explanation that there’s disproportionate focus on rape, kidnapping and murder of the Jewish people in this attack and they’re – and your quote, ‘that there are frankly financial and corrupting influences that lead them exactly to speak the way they do.’”

“Sean, that is a shameful mischaracterization,” Ramaswamy said.

“Hey, Vivek, wait a minute, stop right now,” Hannity interjected, referencing the candidate’s history of denying things he has said. “You do this in every single interview. You say stuff and then you deny it. You deny your own words. So, you know, why don’t you just own what you say and stand by it and stop playing these games?”

“Sean, I am owning what I said,” he responded before repeating his criticism of the “barbaric” attacks on Israel. “Where I differ from other candidates in this field is that I also believe that this is Israel’s decision to make. The U.S. should stand with Israel, but we need to be very careful not to enter a broader regional war in the Middle East.”

Hannity then returned to the remarks about Haley.

“I want an exact explanation for your exact comments that are there ‘frankly financial and corrupting influences that lead them exactly to speak the way that they do,’” Hannity pressed. “What are financial corrupting influences that Nikki Haley is taking a position on? We’ve got pictures of dead babies, decapitated, burned babies’ bodies. We’ve got the equivalent of what would be, population-wise, in the U.S., over 37,000 dead Americans. So, how much more evidence do you need? What are you talking about?!”

As Ramaswamy attempted to evade the question, Hannity firmly interjected: “Please provide an answer.”

“Well, the fact of the matter is, I think anybody who has been a military contractor, anybody who has made $8 million including on serving on the board of Boeing collecting stock options while running for U.S. president on corporate boards, has made money for military contracting through a family business is disqualified from being the U.S. president in a time of war,” Ramaswamy responded. “I think we cannot see our march to World War III in this country.”


Indeed, Haley was a member of Boeing’s Board of Directors from 2019-2020 following her UN ambassadorship under then-President Donald Trump.

According to financial disclosures from earlier in the year, she owns as much as $250,000 in Boeing stock.

Furthermore, Boeing is one of the world’s leading defense contractors in addition to manufacturing civilian aircraft; however, Haley resigned from the position in 2020 after serving a brief stint.

    • Faux Snews is bleeding cash. 40% cut their cable since Jesse Waters was fired. Amerika is the evil empire. RED states need to separate from this evil empire. NOW

  • Hannity does what he always does, pontificating while not letting his guests get a word in edge-wise. I want to hear what his guests think, not what Sean Hannity thinks. I find it difficult to watch his show because of this.

  • Is Joe Biden the Democrat version of Michael Vick? Bad enough he can’t control he can’t his immediate family he can’t even train a dog with patience and respect. This poor creature isn’t the first animal he has ruined.

  • Hey Hannity,
    If not ever holding public office mean’s you’re not qualified to run for president, then Trump, your hero wasn’t qualified either! That’s your biggest problem, is you speak out of both sides of your mouth! You’re cheerleading, often mistaken for knowledge is one of the phoniest things I witness on a daily basis trying to watch your shit shows, I just can’t do it!

    • Trump was not influenced by money. Ramaswamy was absolutely right by mentioning the Military Industrial Complex influencing our elections and those who profit off of war should be disqualified from running for president. I for one am sick and tired of continuous war draining our tax coffers and adding to our 33 trillion dollar debt. Business as usual in Washington is destroying our country.

  • This should not be misconstrued as support for Hamas, however, for anyone thinking America’s obligated to back the country of Israel because the Israeli Jews are allegedly Abraham’s Israelite descendants, I wonder if the following quotations (all of them from recognized Jewish authorities) have something to say about the Zionists’ claims to alleged fulfilled prophecies and the never-ending Middle East conflicts:

    “Strictly speaking, it is incorrect to call an ancient Israelite a ‘Jew’ or to call a contemporary Jew an ‘Israelite’ or a ‘Hebrew.’” (Richard Siegel and Carl Rheins, eds., “Identity Crisis,” The Jewish Almanac, (New York, NY: Bantam Books, 1980) p. 3.)

    That sentence is the opening sentence of the First Chapter entitled “Identity Crisis” of the 1980 Jewish Almanac. That today’s Jews are not genetic Israelites is also admitted in “The Jewish Encyclopedia,” the “Encyclopedia Judaica,” “The Universal Jewish Encyclopedia,” “The Standard Jewish Encyclopedia,” and by many of their historians.

    According to three Jewish encyclopedias and Flavius Josephus, the entire Edomite nation was forced into converting to Judaism and became known as Judahites at the time of the high priest John Hyrcanus (Maccabaeus):

    “…in the days of John Hyrcanus (end of the second century B.C.E.) … the Edomites became a section of the Jewish people.” (“Edom,” Encyclopaedia Judaica (Jerusalem, Israel: Encyclopaedia Judaica Company, 1971) Volume 6, p. 378.)

    “They were then incorporated with the Jewish nation….” (“Edom, Idumea,” The Jewish Encyclopedia (New York & London: Funk and Wagnalls Company, 1904) Volume V, p. 41.)

    “…from then on they constituted a part of the Jewish people, Herod [King of Judea] being one of their descendants.” (Cecil Roth and Geoffrey Wigoden, “Edom (Idumea),” The New Standard Jewish Encyclopedia (Garden City, NY: Doubleday & Company, Inc., 1977) p. 589.)

    “…they submitted to the use of circumcision, and the rest of the Jewish ways of living; at which time … they were hereafter no other than Jews.” (Flavius Josephus, “The Antiquities of the Jews,” Josephus, (Grand Rapids, MI: Kregel Publications, 1960) Book XIII, Chapter IX, Verse 1, p. 279.)

    We keep hearing that if we don’t bless the modern State of Israel (which America has been doing since at least 1948) that we will be cursed. However, it seems it’s been just the opposite, Since 1948, you name it, and there’s not an area in America wherein she hasn’t become worse off.

    Could it because America has identified the wrong people as Israel.

    Today’s Jews are not the only ones with an identity crisis.

    • Thanks for your post. I want to know more about the history of the Jews and will visit some of those sources you provided. I was raised a christen, although not currently active in any particular one. Over the years I have had a number of friends who were of the Jewish faith, and all were wonderful people. I have never understood why most of the non-Jewish people in this world seem to hate the Jews. I’m not sure why the U.S. is backing Israel, but I cannot believe anyone, regardless of their faith, deserve to be treated the way the Palestinians are treating them. I understand the Jewish Nation has been given, what was once their land but, from what I understand, the Palestinians were not the original people to occupy that land. Am I incorrect about that?

    • All JEWS are “ISRAELITES” but; Not all ISRAELITES are “JEWS”!!! The “NATION” of ISRAEL consists of 12 TRIBES. The Jews are decendents from the Tribe of JUDAH!!! You should be looking for where the other 11 are located!!! Here’s a (small) hint: They are all allies!!!

  • Sean: Suggest both you and Vivek carefully examine both your depths of knowledge and the implications of your announced positions, Think the lessons learned presented over 30 years ago by an old soldier/police chief to his community clearly demonstrate that the depth of influence on virtually every aspect of our lives of the military/industrial/political has never been clearly understood by the majority of the masses.

    A soldier/cop/mercenary’s Lessons Learned

    * The Seven C’s of Leadership according to a survey of Vietnam era ground combat veterans listed of the order of their importance to the veterans are; Candor, Competence, Consistency, Commitment, Courage, Compassion, and Courtesy. The reason the soldiers chose “candor” is because to them candor encompasses both omission and co-mission. To a combat soldier lack of absolute candor, be it co-mission or omission, are equal sins! Note: It has been my observation that, democrats are masters of co-mission while republicans are masters of omission!

    * The American people are the most effectively lied to people in modern times thanks primarily to the political class, the bureaucracy, the media, and academia.

    * The greatest threats to the American people are the corrupt and/or incompetent politicians/bureaucrats/academicians found at every level of government/academia, and the majority of the so-called media.

    * Far too many of the politicians/bureaucrats/academicians/media types I have encountered during my years as a soldier and a cop I most kindly refer to as; self-serving, witless, cowards. Note: Prior to retiring to the deep woods I referred to most of the before mentioned folks as self-serving, witless, cowardly, piss-ants. After a short time in the woods I came to know that piss-ants are neither self-serving nor witless, and certainly not cowards!

    * The American Profession of Arms and our brothers/sisters in blue have failed to protect the American people from all of their enemies, both foreign and ‘most especially’ domestic.

    * Soldiers (most especially ground combat soldiers) do not fight first and foremost for their country, the flag, motherhood, girls back home, nor apple pie. Before all else, soldiers engaged in ground combat fight for their fellow soldiers and their unit. Why? Because in every war/police action/whatever in the twentieth century and thus far in the twenty-first, the strategies/tactics adopted by mostly incompetent/corrupt military and civilian managers (notice, I said managers not leaders) were/are designed to maximize the profits of the military/industrial/political complex with little regard for those personnel charged with employing the same. In short, the American soldier was finally officially branded a “mercenary” in 1969 with the creation of the “All Volunteer Army (VOLAR)”.

    * There are only two primary requirements to be a career soldier and/or cop in America. One must be smart enough to do the work and dumb enough to take the job.

    * American soldiers and police officers must in addition to mastering all of their professionally mandated tasks learn to accomplish the same with at least one arm tied behind their backs and their vision impaired 50% or more.

    * After carefully watching the whole of the political class for many years I can say without reservation that most of the group will sell their souls and our bodies just to remain in power.

    * Want to see what the United States of America will look like if the left takes total control of the government? Take your pick, New York City, Baltimore, Chicago, Seattle, San Francisco, Los Angeles, or the complete packages; California, New York, Illinois, etc, etc, etc…..!

    * If the so-called progressive movement continues unchecked a number of able veterans/soldiers/cops are going to be presented with a challenge/decision. Are the American people worth another drop of our sweat and/or our blood?

    * The end goal of the elites and their minions is not (nor ever has been) socialism, communism, fascism, or capitalism. The elites of the world have used all manner of ideologies, religions, terrorism, etc., to drive the masses/peasants/serfs/whoever in one direction. That direction leads to one of the oldest forms of human control ever employed in the history of mankind. That form of human control is Feudalism!

    * Arrogance coupled with ignorance equals stupidity (A + I = S).

    Soldier/Cop/Mercenary, Retired

  • So where does Ramaswamy get his idea that those on boards are disqualified from running for president? Is it in the Constitution or US laws?

    • That is just his opinion, it is not written any place except in his own little mind, and opinions are like assholes every one have one and most of them stink.

  • Hannity is incredibly ignorant about the corrosive influence of the defense contracting industry on US policy- yet knows Trump sought to put an end to “endless war” which resonated deeply with the public. America squandered a fortune in blood, limbs and treasure in Iraq & Afghanistan, never achieving strategic objectives. Now Biden’s squandering $130 billion plus on Ukraine where his son sat on the board of a corrupt energy company making $1 million a year, and the US is depleting ammunition and other military stocks, for a country most Americans couldn’t find on a map. Defense contractors fully expect for the Biden regime to print yet more money to replenish those stocks. Nikki is a neocon warmonger– she’s no fiscal conservative because no fiscal conservative, aware of our staggering $TRILLIONS$ in national debt, would support getting involved in war in Ukraine against nuclear-armed Russia. Hannity needs to recall Dwight Eisenhower’s admonition about the defense industrial complex– which came to fruition. The war drums are being beaten by profiteers, inc. many former generals, seeking to make money off “endless war.” Trump knew better, but then he respects our soldiers- and not those who would exploit their service and put their lives at risk for immense profit, with no identifiable US national security interests at stake.

    • JFK was also against the Pen-of-goons in the Den of Corruption. That got him killed and 58 000 other Amerikan young men in Viet Nam. Amerika has been an evil empire since before 1861 (Abe Lincoln). Restore the republic of “We the People”

    • I agree with everything you said, but here is something to ponder. When was there ever a time in the history of man, where there wasn’t a conflict (war) ongoing somewhere? That’s the nature of man. There will always be a conflict somewhere. You can refrain from being involved only for so long, and the longer you wait, the worse it will be when you are finally forced to get involved. Yes, there are countries who have remained on the sidelines, but only because another country, or countries, stepped up to stop the bad guys. Do you honestly believe if Putin is successful in his conquest of Ukraine, that will be the end? Also, do you believe there will ever be a time when there is no corruption in the Defense Department?

  • Vivek is a shameful MOSCOW-MUPPET,… a false-prophet,… a ‘State-ist’ (totalitarian/ Marxist) in ‘Conservative-clothing’,… insidiously claiming a false ‘isolationism’ to prevent America from supporting freedom-seeking nations ,… like Ukraine & Israel, while suggesting that Moscow-Putin can be worked with as an ally against the CCP— which is tragically laughable, since they are long-time extremely tight ALLYS who have the same ‘Globalist’ conquest view for many decades.! The same dark-spirit of Anti-Christ.

    God Bless Ukraine,…… God Bless Israel,…. God Bless (goodness in) America!

  • Faux Snews is bleeding cash, like CNN and looking for any exposure and headline grabbing. Smart Americans ain’t buying it

    • Shirl,I quit watching hannity about 3 years ago because he has a tendency to pander to radical blacks and liberals in general rather than stand strong on what he says he believes!!!!! He wants to be liked by everyone, including those who want to destroy the nation!!!!!!!!!!

  • I don’t know, or care much, about Haley’s stock portfolio but see her as just another establishment hack seeking to enhance her personal wealth by doing what the swamp wants her to do. I WILL NOT vote for her in the primary and not likely to vote for her in the slim possibility that she could win the nomination!!!!! I have some issues with Ramaswamy but would take him way ahead of Haley!!!!! President Trump is the one I want in office with Ramaswamy and Tim Scott being next in line, Scott ahead of Ramaswamy!!!!! President Trump is waaaay ahead of everyone else with me, he has already proven himself to me and I will stick with him!!!!!!!!!!

    • Haley came across as an angry woman who can be easily triggered and shares one of Hannity’s most distasteful traits…that of talking over people trying to make the whole conversation about you.

  • Once again Hannity is trying to put words in someone’s mouth! Ramaswamy is saying someone making money off of defense spending, such as Haley who owns $200,000 plus in stock with Boeing, should not be President because she could go to war just to personally make money! Stop trying to confuse Americans Hannity, we are not as stupid as you think!

    Do you know something we don’t? I suspect you meant this to be in reference to Tucker Carlson. Doesn’t anybody proofread what they’ve written anymore?
