SEAN HANNITY (HOST): [Trump has] now put pressure on -- massive pressure on the Iranians, which is why they're acting out. I like the fact that people have an impression of Donald Trump that is inaccurate. Literally, Donald Trump said he'd do all these things and he did them. It makes him unique, that's why he's not a politician. He's very, very predictable. And the fact that he hasn't obliterated, as he said he may have to, the Iranians, I believe he will. But he did do a couple of things this weekend that nobody really seems to want to pay attention to, like, oh my gosh, President Trump really did that? That's interesting to me.

Yeah because, number one, the polls show that voters support the president's Iran strategy. [Rep.] Maxine Waters [(D-CA)] was actually accusing Trump of provoking Iran. OK. Why, because he didn't drop cargo planes full of cash and other currency? But the president has now announced more sanctions on Iran's Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Khamenei. And the president also, nobody seems to notice, we did strike back at Iran and their military computers this weekend. But the president said he may obliterate them, and guess what, he may. And is he ever going to get us into a foreign entanglement? No, he's dead set against it. But would he obliterate them? Oh, yeah. Now, if he would go too fast, everyone would be furious with him.
