PETE HEGSETH (CO-HOST): Here to react to that as well as the news of the day, Mark Levin, host of Life, Liberty and Levin, author of Unfreedom of the Press. Mark, thank you so much for being here. Yesterday after our show, we have a pitch meeting and everyone said would do we need to hear from tomorrow? And universally it was Mark Levin. Give us your take with this opening in the Supreme Court, what should the president do, and where is this going to go?

MARK LEVIN (FOX NEWS HOST): Well it's a very strange thing this, Democrat Party. First of all they hate the Constitution, because they spent the last several months pulling down statues of the founders and saying that the Constitution was adopted by slaveholders. And then they wave it around to justify their destruction of the Constitution. Let's be very, very clear. Let me read you a quote. "That's their job, there's nothing in the Constitution that says the president stops being president in his last year. Eight is not a good number, for a collegial body that sometimes disagrees. " That was Ruth Bader Ginsburg in 2016. But this seat doesn't belong to Ruth Bader Ginsburg, it doesn't belong to anybody. It's in the Constitution, and the American people and the president has a say. 

Now under our constitutional system, as Will has said, and you both have said, the president makes a nomination. Now, what the Democrats want to do is sabotage this entire process. 

LEVIN: So when I listen to Susan Collins, and Romney, and murkowski and the other Republicans who say this would be political, this would be unfair, they are failing to uphold their oath to the Constitution of the United States. We don't take an oath to the Democrat Party. We don't take an oath to Chuck Schumer. We didn't take an oath to Ruth Bader Ginsburg. God bless her, one of the most left-wing political active justices in American history which is why left is freaking out.


LEVIN: Now, what are they threatening? To pack the court. The last president to do that was Franklin Roosevelt. And you know who stopped him? The Democrat Congress, because the Democrat Congress said Constitution before party. His own vice president worked behind his back, a former speaker of the House, to stop Franklin Roosevelt. Today, Democrat after Democrat, starting with Biden on down, says they're going to pack the court if the president of the United States fails to comply with the Constitution and if the Senate fails to comply with the constitution. So, choosing not to fill this vacancy be unprecedented in American history, Democrat, Republican, Federalist, Whig president, it doesn't matter. This party, the Democrat Party, is so far off the rails, it is appalling. 

What are they proposing? They want to eliminate the electoral college, that's in the Constitution. We talk about packing the Supreme Court, my buddy [Fox News contributor Dan] Bongino had an idea and I like it. You pack the court, then when we take over, we'll add a few more justices too. So you better be careful what door you're opening here. They want to overrule the state, they want to overwhelm the state voting systems with mail-in votes that they know will create all kinds of chaos on election night. They're telling Biden, never concede. Hillary Clinton, don't concede under any circumstances. They want to end the Senate filibuster. They want to add four Democrats to the Senate from D.C. and Puerto Rico. 

The Democrat Party is the party of antifa, the party of Black Lives Matter. You have Nancy Pelosi calling federal law enforcement storm troopers. You had Jim Clyburn talking about federal law enforcement as Gestapo. They were silent for three months while lawless riots were taking place, now they're encouraging them. You have Democrat spokesman for former Clinton and Obama officials saying out there, you do this, not only will this justice be illegitimate, but we're going to take to the streets. So now, we have a mob, and the mob has a home, and it's called the Democrat Party, and I'm going to tell you something. This mob, one way or another, will be crushed. If they're not crushed at the voting booth, they will be crushed otherwise. Because what they have in sight is not even Donald Trump. It's our Constitution. You heard [Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez]. She is a reprobate. She is a radical. She is illiterate when it comes to the constitution. and she is leading this party. She and the rest of them must be defeated.
