​GRIFF JENKINS (CO-HOST): ​[U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations] Nikki Haley speaking very directly to Kazakhstan, Ethiopia, Equatorial Guinea, and Peru -- where Vice President [Mike] Pence is -- because they abstained. They did not have the guts to stand up and vote against condemning the U.S. for this precise strike. 

PETE HEGSETH (CO-HOST): You also just named the four countries I couldn't think less of. No, when is the last time I cared what Equatorial Guinea, Ethiopia, Kazakhstan, or Peru thought about what America did? Honestly, the U.N. proving how utterly irrelevant it is on the world stage. Who cares about this national security vote?
