HANNITY: This is a great point. Because he did go on his apology tour, I'm going to play that cut in just a second here, but it's interesting, Congressman Louie Gohmert, because we're giving Mohammed Morsi who referred to our allies -- the Israelis -- as the descendants of apes and pigs, we're giving him F-16s, we're giving him tanks, we're giving him $1.5 billion. And then, you know, I'm trying to understand the logic behind this.

REP. LOUIE GOHMERT, R-TEXAS: Well, and that is why he is doing so well amongst radicals and why he's not doing well with most of the Muslim world. I mean, you know, I have met with Muslims in the northern alliance in Afghanistan. They know they have been thrown under the bus. The people that defeated that, the Taliban initially, you go around the world in different places, Muslims that have sided with us, they've been thrown under the bus. So he is out there plugging the radicals. And you bring up Arafat.

You remember George W. Bush would not meet with Arafat in the White House because he knew how that devastated our friends and encouraged our enemies. You remember even in the gulags in the Soviet Union, when Reagan said evil empire about Soviet Union, they applauded. It gave them strength. It helped them push forward. And, you know Sharansky talks about that. And this president doesn't get it.

HANNITY: Natan Sharansky talks about.

GOHMERT: Sharansky. He asked it. He was in the gulag and when they found out a president used those two words --

HANNITY: It helped.

GOHMERT: -- it made incredible encouragement.

HANNITY: And that of course, there was fame infamous speech about Alexander Soldinetson (ph), remember?

GOHMERT: Oh, yes.

HANNITY: And then it comes to America and says, hey you guys are blowing it too, here.
Two things, this week, Ambassador Bolton, good to see you too, and we're going to get everybody in, I promise. King Abdullah of Jordan said, we're making a big mistake by supporting the Muslim Brotherhood. Before I ask you a question, I want to take you back to Barack Obama's apology tour and ask you if this was effective and if you can tie the events together. Let's roll that tape.
