SIEGEL: And you know, we got a lot of specifics...

HANNITY: I had my tonsils out when I was in 1st grade. Does that matter?

SIEGEL: You're terrific.


SIEGEL: You're in good health.

HANNITY: I'm in good health.

SIEGEL: But we -- we got a lot of info today that's helpful in terms of seeing that. He has no family history of heart disease or of cancer.

HANNITY: Parents lived long.

SIEGEL: Long, father into the 80s, mother into 90s. He had a calcium score of -- very low. In 2013, he had an echocardiogram...


HANNITY: ... calcium issue's important because that's -- we're talking about calcification in the arteries?

SIEGEL: It tells you the amount of calcium that's in your coronary arteries. And if you have a lot, it's predicted that you have heart disease. If you have a little -- and both candidates have a little -- it's a predictive of no heart disease. It's very unlikely he has heart disease. EKG was normal. Echocardiogram of the heart is normal. Blood pressure is low. And as you said, his cholesterol is under control. So his heart, lungs look good. Liver tests come back good.

His testosterone is a little elevated, which we're not surprised to find out with all of his energy, and his prostate looks very, very good.

HANNITY: His PSA was really low.

SIEGEL: Really low, which is also, again, a sign that he doesn't have any prostate trouble. His chest X-ray is normal. His thyroid function normal...


SIEGEL: Yes, and -- but his weight -- his weight is his only issue, 236 pounds...


HANNITY: All right, 15 pounds overweight.


SIEGEL: Right.

POWERS: You know, I'd like to add...


POWERS: Yes. Sure. So bottom line, Sean, that Trump is -- you know, there's a few things he needs to work on. BMI, as you mentioned, Dr. Siegel -- BMI is a little elevated, which indicates that the body mass index...

HANNITY: Which indicates he's an average American. But go ahead.

POWERS: Yes. So it's a little elevated. So he could afford to lose a few pounds. He is classified under the NIH calculations as being overweight. And you know, this does put him at risk for diabetes and heart disease, and you're right, there are a lot of Americans that have this concern. But overall, his health concerns are nowhere near Hillary Clinton's alarming medical history, such as -- you know, we've talked about it before, with DVT, CVT, memory lost, concussion, the list goes on.

SIEGEL: I also would, and I think Dr. Powers would agree, there's something called a young 70. We don't just go only by chronological age anymore. This is a young 70. It's not only what age you are but --

HANNITY: I'm a young 54.

SIEGEL: Very. You exercise a lot.


HANNITY: Everyone knows I do martial arts and boxing and hitting and punching. And you do three rounds on the bag and I'm like -- does that mean anything Dr. Powers?

POWERS: You know, I would like to point out one thing, too. Hillary released her medical records yesterday, Trump today, as we saw. But I have a question. Where's the beef? Where is what we all want to see, which is her neuro evaluation? One, has it been done? I would think that most medical professionals would have performed a neuro evaluation and repeat MRIs to be included in that neuro eval. But where is it, and who is saying that it's not pertinent and why hasn't it been released? That's what we want to see.

SIEGEL: I agree with that totally, Dr. Powers. And to your point, we saw a big rundown on the pneumonia which she's clearly recovering from. It was noncontagious, which I don't agree with. Pneumonia is generally contagious. But we didn't see anything about that faint or that near faint and the history of faints and the history of head trauma. We did see a CT scan that was negative but we haven't seen a lot of those records, and she just had a faint. I completely agree with that.

HANNITY: I've got to let you both go. Go ahead, Dr. Powers. Last word.

POWERS: I think pneumonia, although serious, is becoming this red herring. We want the neuro evals. We want to see what's going on --

HANNITY: I want a neurological. I'd like to see an MRI of the brain.

POWERS: I agree with that.

HANNITY: I think that would tell us a lot.

SIEGEL: Absolutely. Absolutely.

HANNITY: I wouldn't hold your breath. If you do, it could be a very damaging medical condition.

Anyway, up next tonight on HANNITY.


DONALD TRUMP, (R) PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE: Over the next ten years, our economic team estimates that under our plan the economy will average 3.5 percent growth and create a total of 25 million new jobs.


HANNITY: Donald Trump laying out his pro-growth economic agenda, promising to create 25 million new jobs. We'll check in with Anthony Scaramucci and Stephen Moore. They are here with reaction.

Then later tonight --


BRIAN STELTER, CNN HOST: I'm not saying Hannity or Limbaugh fit into this necessarily, but some of these figures want her to be sick. They want her to be dying. They want her to be on her death bed. It's wishful thinking.


HANNITY: Clinton News Network Brian Stelter, smearing, slandering me and Rush Limbaugh with that ridiculous lie. We'll check in Mercedes Schlapp, Lisa Boothe, and Eboni Williams here with reaction.


HANNITY: Welcome back to HANNITY. Donald Trump, he outlined his economic policy agenda earlier today right here in New York City. Here are some of those highlights.


TRUMP: It's time to establish a national goal of reaching four percent economic growth.


TRUMP: Over the next 10 years our economic team estimates that under our plan the economy will average 3.5 percent growth and create a total of 25 million new jobs. Our tax plan will greatly simplify the code and reduce the number of brackets from seven to three. One of our greatest job creation measures is going to be our 15 percent business tax rate down from the current 35 percent rate, and a reduction of more than 40 percent.

We will make America wealthy again. We will make America strong again. And we will make America great again.


HANNITY: All right, here with reaction, Trump campaign national finance member and co-host of "Wall Street Week" on the FOX Business Network, Anthony Scaramucci is back with us. Also, economist at the Heritage Foundation and a Trump economic adviser, Steve Moore. Guys, good to see you both.

Let's go over this. Half of America doesn't pay federal income taxes now, they won't pay federal income taxes. He will drop the corporate tax rate from 40 to 15. That puts us -- we're nearly like Ireland at that point, right?

STEVE MOORE, TRUMP ECONOMIC ADVISER: That's right. Right now we have the highest corporate tax in the world, so our businesses are leaving. We've seen that with Burger King --

HANNITY: I have an article right here. Ford is going to spend $1.6 billion.

MOORE: They are leaving, and we don't have to scratch our heads and say why are they leaving. They tell us we have the highest rate. IF you cut that rate, I guarantee you, from 40 percent down to 15 so we go from the highest to the lowest, it's going to be like a magnet. Those companies are going to come back. They're going to invest in the United States.

HANNITY: And this issue, I'll go to Anthony on this, of corporations, multinational corporations parking not millions, billions, but literally maybe as high as $5 trillion overseas because the taxation rate is too high in this country. Incentivize them with a 10 percent rate, they bring that money back. They build factories, manufacturing centers. That means people in Flint, Michigan, Detroit, Wisconsin, Ohio, Pennsylvania, do they get back to work?

ANTHONY SCARAMUCCI, TRUMP'S NATIONAL FINANCE COMMITTEE MEMBER: They not only go back to work, Sean, but the big unemployment number that people don't focus on is the U-6 unemployment number. Steve can tell you that number is still 9.5, 10 percent. If you brought half of that money back, you would get that number down into the five, six percent zone, and then you really are at full employment in the country, and you'll see an explosion in wage growth for the middle class and for working class families. And that's really been the principle focus of today's speech. Let's work at the American government level for the middle class and working class families to help them create an aspirational society.

HANNITY: I'm a broken record -- the lowest labor participation rate since the '70s, lost home ownership rate in 51 years, worst recovery since the '40s.

MOORE: Sean, there was another big announcement today, I mean this week. The Census Bureau came out with their income and poverty statistics.

HANNITY: I've got it right here.

MOORE: There's a little bump up in income, but here's an interesting thing about that.

HANNITY: I have it right here. "Business Insider" had it.

MOORE: The average income for the middle class family, working class family in America today, is lower today than it was in 2008. This has been no recovery at all. Hillary is running around the country saying everything is wonderful.

HANNITY: We have 12 million more people on food stamps. We have 8 million more in poverty.

MOORE: Still 42.5 million people --

HANNITY: Where are the conservatives on this? Where are the people who say they are conservative? This is Reagan to me.

MOORE: Yes, it is. We're going to cut taxes. Reagan did that. We're going to get rid of regulations. Reagan did that. Trump is even to the right of Reagan on school choice. You talked about this the other night. He's saying let's take the Department of Education, that $60 billion, let's give it to the parents and the kids in the inner city so they can go to good schools. We're going to have a pro-America energy policy. You go down the line, this is one of the most conservative -- I worked for Ronald Reagan. I would say this is the candidate right now, Donald Trump, who is the most Reaganesque that we've had since Reagan.

HANNITY: Last question for Anthony. Energy is the lifeblood of our economy. Let's just be blunt. We need energy to keep everything going. Now, we're dependent on a lot of our energy sources, but we have more resources, especially with natural gas, new technologies, horizontal drilling, fracking, all these new technologies, where we could be energy independent maybe in four years and put millions of Americans to work at high-paying jobs. That's a big part of our potential success, isn't it?

SCARAMUCCI: It's not only that, Sean. I mean, it turns out that we are actually Saudi Arabia. Imagine that 40 years ago when we were talking about peak oil. So we are actually a net exporter of energy in three to five years. And what Mr. Trump is saying is we can convert that into revenues, which will not only grow GDP but help us pay down the deficit. And so that's a brilliant strategy.

KRAUTHAMMER: So western Europe dependent on Ukraine, and Vladimir Putin if he turns off the spigot, they are in dire straits. We can help export to them and that will create more jobs here.

MOORE: I just wrote a book on this.


MOORE: I've got to get that for you. But we, not only -- Anthony, you're right, we can be energy dependent, but I'm going to take that a step further. We can be the energy dominant country in the globe.

HANNITY: We could be loaded. We could be rich like the Saudis.

MOORE: And we're talking about economics. Think about the national security if we don't have to import the oil from countries who are trying to kill us.

HANNITY: It's huge.

MOORE: But Hillary, by the way, her agenda is keep it in the ground. That makes no sense.

HANNITY: And coal miners out of work.

MOORE: She's done a good job on that.

HANNITY: All right, up next tonight on this busy news night on HANNITY.


STELTER: I'm not saying Hannity or Limbaugh fit into this necessarily, but they, some of these figures want her to be sick, they want her to be dying, they want her to be on her death bed. It's wishful thinking.


HANNITY: That's called slander. Brian Stelter, the little pipsqueak who relies on Media Matters for all of the talking points, he's kind of Jeff Zucker's stenographer. Anyway, he takes a shot at me and Rush. I call it slander. We'll set the record straight and get reaction from Mercedes Schlapp, Lisa Booth, and Eboni Williams straight ahead.


HANNITY: And welcome back to HANNITY. So last night the CNN host, I call him the pipsqueak, he's uses Media Matters as his talking point. He's kind of Jeff Zucker's stenographer, Brian Stelter, viciously slandered and attacked me and Rush Limbaugh. Watch this.


STELTER: There's a basket of legitimate questioning about Hillary Clinton's health. And some conservative commentators and media figures fit into that basket. They're right to wonder about her health in some cases.

Then there's this other basket, the truly deplorable basket. Sean Hannity fits into it, so does Rush Limbaugh, Alex Jones, and others. These are people who bring up rumors and innuendo about Clinton's health, and they've been doing it for years. I'm not saying Hannity or Limbaugh fit into this necessarily, but they -- some of these figures want her to be sick, they want her to be dying, they want her to be on her deathbed. It's wishful thinking.


HANNITY: Want her sick, want her dying, want her on her death bed? Brian, if you'd actually do some research, I know you work for the Clinton news network, but if you'd actually do some research you might discover that numerous times on my radio show -- yesterday, I said I wish her all the best, we only wish the best even though we have political differences. So what you did is a lie, a smear, a slander, basically a typical CNN day.

And joining us now, "Washington Examiner," contributor Lisa Boothe, FOX News contributors Mercedes Schlapp, and Eboni Williams. You know, what am I supposed to do with that. I should sue for slander.

EBONI WILLIAMS, FOX NEWS CONTRIBUTOR: Let's go to court with him.

HANNITY: I have better things to do. It is a slander.

WILLIAMS: In all seriousness, look, you have well documented. I would challenge you to name one thing you agree with Hillary Clinton on. You and I have political differences.


WILLIAMS: But I know you to be a good man.

HANNITY: You're coming over. I'm winning you over.

WILLIAMS: I know you to be a good man, and I've never known you to wish someone dead. It's actually a very nasty, undermined ploy. And I'm very disappointed and kind of disgusted.

HANNITY: Mercedes, when you really dig deep here, that's kind of the playbook that Democrats, liberals like anybody that works at CNN do. Even Hillary's comments about "deplorables," which he's just one-upping, I guess. He couldn't think of his own line so he's using hers. But it's followed by these are people that will never change, irredeemable, that they're racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic. That is the narrative Democrats use every campaign, and it is a slander.

MERCEDES SCHLAPP, "WASHINGTON TIMES": It's a typical name calling strategy that they have. And what's fascinating is with the mainstream media is they live in a bubble. They're the ultimate Washington insiders. They're the ultimate New York elitists. They don't know how to connect with the everyday Americans.

And what they have spent their time doing right now is that they criticize reporters time and time again and individuals who are just asking very simple questions on Hillary Clinton's health. Rush Limbaugh came out and said I'm simply reporting what I'm seeing. What are we seeing? Cough fits, seizure-like behaviors, questions that reporters should be asking, and yet they're defending her.

HANNITY: It's what's on the record we've talked about, Lisa. And we see the coughing fits. We know that she claims to the FBI she couldn't remember ever being briefed ever about cyber-security. We know that she has deep vein thrombosis. We know now she has pneumonia. We saw her collapse. We know that she had some type of cerebral venous thrombosis as well. She has a real conditions here, real concussion. Is it so unfair to ask doctors what they think about what is on the record, because that's all I did, and he called that a conspiracy theory.

LISA BOOTHE, FOX NEWS CONTRIBUTOR: No, it's not, Sean, because we saw her falling to the ground and video. There have been pictures of her having difficulty getting up the stairs. And as you mentioned, she was the one, or at least in the context of the notes of the FBI, seemingly telling them that she couldn't remember things after her concussion. So there are legitimate questions there.

And Sean, these individuals, these reporters had no problem questioning John McCain's health in 2008, but somehow Hillary Clinton's health is off limits. There's a reason why according to Gallup America's trust in the news media is at an all-time low right now. And Sean, Hillary Clinton has done herself no favors by being an individual who has concealed so much information -- her private email server, the Clinton Foundation.

HANNITY: Exit question for all of you. Simple question. Do you think we're being told the entire truth about Hillary's health? Eboni?

WILLIAMS: No. She has a consistent transparency problem, Sean.

HANNITY: Mercedes?

SCHLAPP: I agree with Eboni. I think that there is this ultimate cover- up, and this is the narrative that Hillary Clinton keeps pushing forward.


BOOTHE: I don't think Hillary Clinton is capable of the truth.

WILLIAMS: Lisa, get an opinion.

BOOTHE: I don't think it's in her DNA.


HANNITY: Lisa gets the gold star for that one.

Thank you all. And coming up, we have a very important "Question of the Day." We need your help. That's next.


HANNITY: All right, time for our "Question of the Day." Given the new polls, are you feeling optimistic now about Donald Trump's chances in 54 days come November 8th? Just go to, @SeanHannity on Twitter, let us know what you think.

That's all the time we have for this evening. We will be back tomorrow night. And we'll see you here tomorrow night. Thanks for being with us.
