SEAN HANNITY (HOST): He's down 16 after the first round of votes. I hope we don't have to go through 15 again. That would be painful, but Republicans are making it painful on themselves.
I know people want me to give out the phone number. We'll put it up on Hannity.com as a public service. The only thing I ask people is when you make your phone call -- and you have every right to contact your elected representatives if you choose -- just be respectful. Be, you know -- don't be, you know, one of these, you know, liberal idiots screaming and yelling and ranting and raving. Explain to them why you think it's important that the people's House be opened again and that you don't like these temporary measures.
I -- frankly, I just think it's an abdication of leadership if they cop out and say, "Oh, we'll empower McHenry for three months." No. Pick a speaker. That's what you're hired to do. And yeah, you have to make hard choices. And yeah, you may not get the person you want. But that's the way the process works. I didn't make the process. It's just the way it works.
I think Jordan would be a great speaker myself. And I know that people are angry. And you know that a vote for McCarthy and a vote for Scalise, or a vote for Lee Zeldin, those enough would put Jordan over the top. And then you can get back to the business of opening the people's House and dealing with the important issues of our day.
