PETE HEGSETH (CO-HOST): By the way, I don't care about Iranian cultural sites, and I'll tell why. If they could, if Iran could, if you understand the Islamic Republic of Iran, of Islamists, if they could, if they had the power, they would destroy every single one of our cultural sites and build a mosque on top of it. If you don't understand the nature of our enemy, you're foolish about who you're pointing out and whether or not you're happy that Soleimani is dead. This guy's exported terrorism for that regime for 40 years and the fact that Democrats in this country can't take a pause to say this is a good thing, now let's figure out how to prevent an Iranian bomb, they just go straight to politics and it's shameful.
