Sean Hannity welcomed Bob Beckel back to the Fox News Channel and back to "Hannity"... by reminding him of his incorrect predictions about the 2016 election.

Hannity played a montage of Beckel saying last year that "this race is over" and that Hillary Clinton will be the eventual victor.

Beckel, who ran former Sen. Walter Mondale's (D-Minn.) 1984 presidential campaign, said he later took a look at some rural counties and noticed the large disparity between Clinton's and other Democrats' performance.

In Cherokee County, N.C., Beckel said, Trump won 85 percent of the vote, while the makeup of the district is only 55 percent Republican.

"The Democrats didn't pay any attention to [rural areas]," he said.

Politics aside, Beckel said he was happy to be back.

"Welcome home," Hannity said.
