change until the creepy clown craze is over. why you're about to see a lot less of its iconic mascot. and on the mend. our buddy, al, gets his second knee replacement surgery. we'll see how he's doing today, wednesday, october 12th, 2016. >> announcer: from nbc news, this is "today" with matt lauer and savannah guthrie live from studio 1a in rockefeller plaza. and good morning, everyone, welcome to "today" on a wednesday morning. al told me he was going to the hospital to get a little work done but it meant something else. >> in this town it usually means something else. getting his knee replaced. we'll check in with him. we hear the surgery went well. >> we miss him. we look forward to talking to him. let's talk about politics, just 27 days until the election. here is the state of the race today. donald trump is going after his own party, labeling gop lawmakers weak and ineffective after dozens of them pulled support of his campaign in the
7:02 am
wake of that leaked "access hollywood" tape. and our new poll taken after sunday's debate shows hillary clinton with a commanding ten-point lead among likely voters, 50% to 40% in a head-to-head matchup with trump. and it's a tale of two coasts on the trail. trump is back in florida, holding two more rallies. clinton heads west with stops in colorado and nevada on her schedule. let's get right to hallie jackson in florida. hallie, good morning to you. >> reporter: hi, matt, good morning. this morning donald trump is ramping up his battle with his own party. his campaign set to hold a private call with members of congress today to try and update them on their strategy, even as trump himself announces he's apparently now unchained. on stage at a packed panama city park, donald trump staying silent about the republican civil war he's now reigniting. online, a different story.
7:03 am
the shackles are off, he tweeted, reportedly telling texas donors it feels so good. >> the shackles are some of the establishment people that are weak and ineffective people within the republican party, senators and others, and paul ryan. i wouldn't want to be in a foxhole with a lot of these people, including ryan, especially ryan. >> reporter: trump's running mate, mike pence, brought on board partly to mend fences with the republican establishment telling nbc's kelly o'donnell. >> i don't find myself thinking a whole lot about party right now, i find myself and donald trump finds himself thinking mostly about america. >> reporter: but just four weeks until election day, new fallout for the gop ticket. this morning, nbc news has learned exclusively some big-dollar donors are demanding refunds, appalled by trump's sexually aggressive comments during a 2005 "access hollywood" taping, a show owned by nbc universal. in an e-mail obtained by nbc news, one donor writes he was repulsed by trump's comments regarding women, worried the
7:04 am
campaign will assure a victory for hillary clinton. a trump spokesman saying we are unaware of any donors making such a request. as a new "usa today" analysis now shows a quarter of all top-elected republicans won't endorse their nominee. >> i guess trump will have a separate party. we'll have a separate party, yeah. >> reporter: but he still trails hillary clinton in almost every battleground, trying to turn the tide with sharper attacks in a new ad. >> hillary clinton doesn't have the fortitude, strength or stamina to lead in our world. >> reporter: trump says he looks forward to facing off in the final debate in florida, bragging about how he did last time. >> by the way, did everybody see the debate, right? it's gotten good reviews, good reviews. >> reporter: and memorably explaining why it looks like he was looming. >> she entered my space, right? so i said i'm not getting near this woman. >> reporter: his rally ending with a messaging misstep. >> so go and register.
7:05 am
make sure you get out and vote november 28th. >> reporter: election day, of course, is november 8th. our new polling is showing something about the 2005 audio, that more voters after the debate as opposed to before it believe that hot mike moment doesn't disqualify donald trump from the presidency. matt, savannah. >> hallie, thanks so much. let's bring in our experts, mark halperin and nicolle wallace. good morning to you. i'll start with you, nicole. is there potentially a strategy for donald trump to go after the establishment, go after the old gray beards of the party, or is he just campaigning that he just don't care. >> well, i think it's both. i think his strategy for winning the nomination -- his first target was jeb bush, who embodied the gop establishment, and his first sort of scalp was his. and then he kept on going until he had obliterated 16 establishment figures, so i think he's sort of back to
7:06 am
basics. the notion that he was shackled is the exception. the idea that he was ever restrained for a nanosecond, and restrained by whom? his family represent the greatest enablers and the most powerful people in his inner circle. >> back to basics, one of the things he's gone back to is this attack on hillary clinton's stamina and physical health. is there any indication that as a strategy, mark, that works? >> well, right now it seems like his primary goal is to rally republicanehind him. the videotape caused a lot of republicans to go away from him. he's not going to win unless his support amongst republicans is well north of 80%. going after hillary clinton on this is like going after benghazi or her husband's past, it rallies republicans. i think that's what this ad is about. it may not work to win the election right away, but the first step to even being in a position to win is to get republicans back on his side. >> and then you have speaker paul ryan who seems to be in some ways going through the stages of grief and almost acknowledging he doesn't think
7:07 am
trump can win. now he sets up an argument to say if you had stuck by us, maybe we would have won. >> donald trump's view is i'm the republican nominee, republicans should be for me. paul ryan's view is i'm trying to save the house of representatives so hillary clinton doesn't have unified democratic control. they're going to be in conflict. i predict by election day, paul ryan will have repudiated donald trump even more than he already did. >> we'll keep you around for the democrats. real quickly, at this stage of the race is there anything you can compare this to, a candidate so at odds with his own party? >> nothing in recent history. paul ryan believes what most people believe, not just republicans, but you look at structurally, he's not going to win because the people that you need to win over to your side are not the people that are going to respond or be fired up by the kind of scorched earth
7:08 am
politics that he's fully embraced. let's turn to the clinton campaign and they are grappling with more hacked e-mails. president obama and former vice president al gore are campaigning hard for clinton. kristen welker has that part of the race covered. kristen, good morning. >> reporter: savannah, good morning to you. secretary clinton heads out west today to colorado and nevada as she is facing more tough questions about hacked e-mails, purportedly belonging to her campaign chairman, john podesta. podesta now telling reporters the fbi is investigating, this as top democrats hit the campaign trail in force. facing an increasingly bitter battle, democrats presenting a united front, hitting donald trump hard over tapegate. >> that's not right. you just have to be a decent human being to say that's not right. >> reporter: even al gore, who famously distanced himself from the clintons during his failed 2000 presidential bid making a rare appearance with hillary clinton in florida, the same state where a recount ultimately led to his defeat. the goal, courting millennial voters. >> your vote really, really,
7:09 am
really counts. >> reporter: as donald trump unleashes some of his most personal attacks yet against bill clinton's alleged past indiscretions, trump supporters are joining the fray. demonstrators organize bide a pro-trump radio host protesting the former president at events. >> now, let me just say -- >> reporter: after event on wednesday. >> uh-oh, somebody is yelling at me again. >> reporter: the clinton camp is also dealing with a new round of hacked e-mails, purportedly from campaign chairman john podesta, released by wikileaks but not authenticated by nbc news. in one e-mail raising questions about a possible conflict of interest, clinton press secretary and former justice department official brian fallon writing that he was in contact with doj about lawsuits over clinton's e-mail issues, writing quote, doj folks inform me there is a status hearing in the case. podesta responding to reporters
7:10 am
on clinton's campaign plane. >> i was contacted by the fbi. they are investigating the matter. >> reporter: trump trying to capitalize. >> wikileaks is amazing, the stuff that's coming out. it shows she's a real liar. >> reporter: all this as hillary clinton is providing a glimpse into her mindset with less than a month until election day, telling "the new york times" magazine i'm not going to lose and i'm the last thing standing between you and the apocalypse. now john podesta also blamed russia for the hack and says he believes the trump campaign is colluding with russia. the u.s. government has said it believes russia is behind the hacks. out west today secretary clinton is expected to same at take aim at the republicans in down-ballot races who have yet to denounce trump. >> all right, thank you. >> mark, scale of 1 to 10, 1 being a nonevent, 10 being a campaign-shaking event, where do these wikileaks documents fall? >> 3 with the potential to go to 8 as reporters look into the
7:11 am
stuff to come. kind of extraordinary that the chairman of the democratic nominee's campaign is accusing russia of colluding with the republican nominee and it's not the lead story. >> hillary clinton needs to attract millennials. in some weird way does the wikileaks matter more to millennials? because they live in a digital world? >> i don't think most of the things have come out are much inside baseball. they're complicated stories. unlike the controversies involving donald trump, they don't directly involve hillary clinton, they involve her team. we'll have to see how stuff develops and if it gets close to her. >> but it does see the perception that already exists about hillary clinton because you do see these behind-the-scenes machinations, what's her position on this, what's the political fallout on that? which is one of the things people don't like hillary clinton for. she just says what's expedient. >> that's exactly right. make no mistake about it, her rise in the polls is not a sign of her strength, it's a sign of his collapse. so these developments don't suggest that she's so strong and the voters are so attached to her, they suggest that before our very eyes the bottom is falling
7:12 am
out of the trump endeavor. >> unless we see her react to this stuff, unless reporters can get to her and question her and she's forced to respond, it just doesn't get in front of any type of voters the way the trump stuff is right now. >> al gore on the campaign trail for hillary clinton. we know he's quite the environmental activist but he's flown under the radar in terms of politics. does he help her? >> he helps her get news coverage. people are talking about global warming which does appeal to millennials and that everybody needs to turn out to vote. or the election could be lost. use al gr to attract coverage and get that message out. i don't think al gore himself necessarily helps all that much with millennials. >> no accident he's campaigning in florida where it was a difference of 500 votes that changed -- >> nothing more raw for him than the floridian swing voter, but he makes a point. >> nicole, mark, thanks so much. the fbi has been called in to help in an investigation of a small plane crash in connecticut. it killed one man, left the pilot with serious burns.
7:13 am
but now that pilot is indicating the crash was no accident. nbc's tom costello covers aviation. tom, what can you tell us? >> reporter: the plane had taken off from a flight school. it was on final approach when it went down. the pilot survived. the student pilot was the passenger. now federal law enforcement sources say they're looking at his background, including his nationality, trying to determine if he intentionally crashed the plane. a quiet community in connecticut rattled this morning after a small plane crashed in a neighborhood late tuesday, possibly intentionally. the twin engine piper pa-34 was on its final approach to the hartford airport when it crashed, knocking down power lines, leaving about 500 homes without power. >> it's early in the investigation now. at this point it's a plane crash. as far as anything specifically whether it's an accident or a criminal case, that's all to be determined. >> according to "the new york times," the pilot who survived the crash told investigators it was not an accident. the passenger had received his
7:14 am
pilot's license just a year ago. >> it almost crashed our car like in pieces. >> reporter: the plane careening into a heavily populated area, just barely missing cars as they were driving by. >> i heard the engine sputter and i saw the whole thing coming in and i just instantly stopped in my car and the whole car just shook. >> it was like a movie scene, like who would have thought that would have happened. >> reporter: investigators say the plane appears to have come from a local flight school. two people were on the plane at the time of the crash. one passenger died. again, he was a student pilot. a plane went down near a jet engine manufacturer for commercial, military and general aviation. so far no indication the crash involved any of the company's employees or contractors. two people in that minivan at the time of the crash suffered minor injuries. guys, back to you. >> strange story. tom, thank you very much. in other news, a federal disaster declaration has now been approved for parts of north carolina dealing with that historic flooding in the wake of hurricane matthew.
7:15 am
before hammering the u.s., the storm dealt a devastating blow to parts of the caribbean. gabe gutierrez is in haiti with the latest on the situation there. >> hurricane matthew ripped through this area with winds up to 145 miles an hour and these farmers tell us that the water rushed through here and they had to run up the side of this mountain to escape. now, from the air you can really see the true scope of the devastation. the u.n. estimates more than a million people are in need of humanitarian aid. several hundred thousand are still in emergency shelters, and now the fear is the spread of cholera. emergency aid is slowly trickling into this country, but not fast enough for those in the most devastated areas. back to you. >> gabe, thank you very much. here in the u.s., the death toll from matthew is now up to at least 36 people across five states. the coast guard desperately looking for residents who may have been stranded by rising floodwaters in north carolina. on tuesday, search teams reached elderly residents in a high-rise
7:16 am
building and carried the fragile and disabled to safety. in the meantime, a texas man watching this drone video plotted his twin brother's house and tweeted a plea to help his sibling trapped on the second floor. the drone operator alerted rescuers and minutes later a team arrived carrying the man and his dog to safety. one happy ending. still a concern in north carolina. >> it is a dire situation because the flooding is not going to improve until the weekend. we still have all of these rivers with the red diamonds at major flooding, especially the lumber river in lumberton, north carolina. i just want to point out the fact that here is major flooding just under 20 feet. and you can see today, tomorrow, friday, saturday, even into sunday it stays above major flooding. it will drop on monday but we'll see flooding of some kind. the problem is there's so much water it really has nowhere to go. with more than a foot of rain from matthew, all of this water
7:17 am
is just sitting there and it just simply cannot recede. the neuse river, the same situation before it goes below major flood stage. hurricane nicole is category 2. this is not going to threaten the east coast at all. this is a threat to bermuda, possibly as a category 2 storm. winds are at 100 miles an hour. you can see as we go into thursday and thursday afternoon, it could come very close to bermuda, possibly making landfall as a category 2 storm with up to 4 to 8 inches of rain likely and also a 6 to 8-foot storm surge is possible asl. o to see tropical storm force winds as soon as we get into the overnight hours and then we're looking at hurricane-force winds to affect bermuda at 9:00 tomorrow morning. so we are certainly looking at a major situation possible for bermuda but the flooding will be a big concern for north carolina the rest of this week. that's a look at the weather across the country. your local forecast is coming up in just 30 seconds. he audiences.

>> president obama renewed his call to send humans to mars. the president says his administration and nasa are working with private companies to put people on the red planet by 2030. he'll talk more about the future exploration at a summit in pittsburgh tomorrow. donald trump is hammering members of his own party. on fox news he slammed house speaker paul ryan for refusing to campaign for him and hinted ryan may not keep the leadership position if trump is elected president. >> i'm just tired of nonsupport and i don't really want his support. i would think that ryan maybe wouldn't be there, maybe he'll be in a different position. >> trump is holding some more rallies in the state of florida today. let's see today's campaign moment. here it is. mike pence shutting down a supporter after her call for revolution at an iowa town hall last night. >> if hillary clinton gets in, i myself, i'm ready for a revolution because we can't have her in. >> no, don't say that.
7:32 am
>> but i'm just saying it. no, you know, i'm like trump, you know. do i not speak for people here? am i not saying the truth guys? come on. >> pence said the real revolution will come on election day when he said trump will be elected president. also this morning we have a new development tied to those clown sightings we've been telling you about for weeks now. mcdonald's is saying that it's having an impact on the fast food chain's iconic mascot. nbc's joe fryer has that story. joe, good morning to you. >> matt, good morning. with halloween on the horizon, the clown craze is growing, and not just in the u.s. the problem has gone global. and now a beloved clown will be keeping a lower profile. ronald mcdonald, the gentle red-haired mascot for the nation's largest fast food chain is now cutting back on his schedule. in a statement, mcdonald's says it's mindful of the current climate around clown sightings in communities and is being thoughtful in respect to ronald mcdonald's participation in
7:33 am
community events for the time being. ronald laying low because the scary sightings are getting worse. one was spotted hanging out the back of a detroit city bus. >> keep your hands where we can see them. >> and dash cam shows officers stopping clowns who were chasing cars. one of them left a 4-year-old child at home alone. it's also causing a problem overseas with creepy clown stunts like this chain saw-wielding one in england. >> this is frightening to people who owe their living to clowns. >> reporter: one website has created an interactive map of clown episodes. tensions are so high in st. francis, minnesota, a coach lost his job. he always dresses up during the final soccer practice of the season, but this year he was a clown after his ninth graders tweeted this photo, he was fired. >> i'm at a loss for words what this has came to just over something like that. >> the school district says younger kids have been frightened by creepy clown
7:34 am
reports. >> i'd say that the safety and security of kids is not an overreaction. >> across the country, police are arresting clowns for scaring strangers. >> are you the clown scaring the kids back there? >> in massachusetts, one department even created a public service announcement with officers pouring out of a squad car like it's a clown car. >> remember, if you want to act like a clown, we have no problem treating you like one. >> most of these sightings are copycat hoaxes, but police are still taking them seriously. as for ronald mcdonald, he will not totally vanish. the company says it will just be more cautious in determining where ronald will and won't appear. matt. >> all right, joe fryer. joe, thank you very much. >> such an odd story. let us turn to dylan. what are you looking at on your weather map. >> well, we've got an interesting situation setting up across the pacific northwest. we have storm after storm after storm that's going to move in along this atmospheric river of moisture here. not only will we see a lot of rain, but we could see hurricane-force winds affect
7:35 am
especially the coastline. that goes for seattle down through portland and even into northwestern parts of california as well. so the first one moves in tonight and then we'll start to see heavier rain continue to affect the area thursday and friday. then we're going to see another storm system make its way in over the weekend and yet another one on tuesday. combine all that just through the weekend alone and we can see as much as 10 inches of rain in crescent city. most areas will pick up 7 to 10 inches of rain in some of the highest elevations. we could even see up to 20 inches of rain so this is going to become an interesting story for the west coast when you factor in those hurricane-force winds as well. elsewhere we have a chance of isolated strong storms from the great lakes stretching down into our weather here right now looking at misty skies around san francisco. temperatures in the mid 50s and upper 50s closer to san jose for the morning. there you see 58 degrees, palo alto and san jose right now. for the afternoon, low 60s
7:36 am
around san francisco with patchy low clouds. as you just saw in the national forecast, our weather about to get more interesting. friday the wind and rain begin to pick up with more rain from a second storm due in saturday into sunday with showers lingering into monday of next week. and that's your latest forecast. >> all right, dylan, thank you very much. coming up next, a growing crisis on campuses people always say

it's 7:40 now on this wednesday morning. we're back with our special series campus undercovered. >> ronan farrow has been examining some of the challenges facing college students. >> it is disturbing. good morning to you as well. it's also a dangerous time right now at this moment when it comes to this issue, sexual assault on campus. experts call the fall term the red zone because it's the time when most of these assaults take place. in recent years the government has tried to crack down, they're leaning on schools to do more to protect victims and fix a system that many of the victims say is impossible. many experts agree schools needed to act more. but some say the way schools are
7:41 am
responding is creating new problems. >> i did everything a rape victim is supposed to do. i reported it. i allowed the rape kit to be taken. i gave a statement. >> this september, 19-year-old delaney robbins came forward alleging the university of north carolina refused to act after she was sexually assaulted. >> six months later the university has done nothing. >> six months of on-campus investigation run by school administrators she says lacked basic knowledge of sexual assault and showed bias in favor of her alleged attacker, a star player on the unc football team. fed up, she finally took action on her own and was able to secure a warrant for misdemeanor charges of sexual battery and assault. artis denies the charges. >> everything was completely consensual that happened that night. >> delaney's family says a case this serious should have been handled differently. >> what happened to my daughter is a crime and should be
7:42 am
investigated by a professional and capable police department. >> but on college campuses, cases like delaney's often are not handled by police but by schools, in a process that varies from campus to campus and that a growing number of students say is unjust. >> there is someone out there who has attacked me and will probably attack someone else and i live with that. >> do you blame harvard for that? >> i do. >> this student wrote a powerful article in harvard's "crimson" alleging she was raped. >> he threw my head into a wall. when i kind of came to, he had me bent over his bed. >> a rape kit exam affirmed he had been assaulted but didn't feel comfortable going to the police. >> the police is an extremely brutal process. >> after talking to friends who had been through harvard's on-campus trial, she decided that wasn't an option either. >> it's so ambiguous. at least if you go to the
7:43 am

a beautiful day on our plaza and just ahead we have a jam-packed half hour. we have one republic inside getting to play first sounding fabulous, i might add. hi, ryan. >> a real treat tomorrow, throwback thursday, barry gibb will be here to perform one of the bee gees' biggest hits. >> that will be good and our friend jon hamm on playing the spy in his new movie and why his co-star says he's frustrating to work with in a good way, of course. >> we never know what to expect and we know we'll get a good laugh and our buddy kevin hart is here and we'll chat with him coming up. >> and katie lee has a new spin on lasagna that is perfect for the fall. >> perfect fall weather and it should be a nice sunny one across the northeast, but we do have a couple of scattered showers and storms back through the great lakes and stretching into the midwest today. the cold front cooling things down big time back through areas like minneapolis is going to be
8:32 am
20 to 30 degrees colder than it was yesterday and that extends all of the way down into northern texas, too. heavy rain, the first of several strong storms hitting the pacific northwest. we could see 15, 20 inches of rain in some areas with the series of storms moving onshore that way and hurricane-force winds and scattered showers in the northeast tomorrow and also down through texas low clouds, drizzle and mist along the coast in san francisco where it's 54, 58 in palo alto and san jose. for the afternoon peninsula san francisco temperatures mostly in the 60s. about the same for oakland and low- to mid-70s san jose, tri-valley and north bay valleys. mild temperatures tomorrow as the clouds start to increase. wind as well, rain picking up for friday morning's commute with high surf out on the coast. second storm late saturday into sunday keeps those showers going through monday morning. you got very excited when
8:33 am
you heard we were going to talk to the crowd. >> what do you want to talk about. >> i love new york, but we're going down to florida. >> that's a good place to go. >> isn't that where all new yorkers go? >> thank you very much for being here. >> savannah? >> dylan, thank you. suave, charming, daring are some of the ways to describe jon hamm. do you want to add an adjective? >> no. he plays an undercover spy that moves with his suburbs and when he is with his neighbor john l galafiniakis. >> this is his first time. thank you. >> i think -- two? >> whatever he's having. >> coming up. >> should i know what zezu is? >> i don't think you should. i really don't.
8:34 am
it's a very exotic beverage that zack's character overindulges in and hilarity ensues. >> your character would order the zezu because he's charismatic. >> he blows his own glass and has a secret life. he's a spy independent. >> yes, in fact. there's more than meets the eye to our friend tim jones and that's the big reveal in this and we recruit zack and isla's characters into the spy game d and. >> one of the things i like about your characters is he kind of longs for the suburban life, doesn't he? >> yes. >> he wants to tinger in the garage with his neighborhoods. >> he wants friends. you know, he wants to have some friends that don't shoot at him all of the time and that was kind of what we talked about when we started making the movie. well, what's the difference
8:35 am
here? what are we talking about? what if a guy who had seemingly had it all is lonely and wanted a pal? i have so many questions and i didn't know indoor skydiving existed. >> it is remarkably painful. zack and i did it. not only do you get busted around, you are getting held up by essentially 140 mile an hour winds that's blowing my 200 pounds as much as they can up in the air and it is painful. it's fun. >> one of the things i liked learning when i read about the movie was that you and zach go way back. >> we do. >> way before either of you was famous. >> we do, yeah. when i first came to l.a. in 1995 zach and i -- i would go see comedy shows because it was cheap, and didn't have to stand in line. >> good, clean fun. >> yeah. no one else did so you would just go and it would be a fun
8:36 am
night out and that was when people like zach and pat oswald was also in the film, sarah silverman and all these guys were doing this one specific comedy night and it was a fun night and that's how zach and i met and that was 20-some odd years ago. which means we're all officially old. >> you know what? look what's happened to you now. >> i know. >> one of the things zach says a lot and it's true. he pays you a compliment and he says you're really funny, and not like actor funny, but just funny and it's irritating because you do look the way you do. it's want fair. >> he's calling me irritating. >> think the quote is frustrating. >> he's frustrated with you. >> that's fine. zach could be frustrating, too. >> maybe he doesn't know the burden of being you. >> i don't know about that. >> i'm a huge "mad men" fan, and
8:37 am
there's nothing fun they happens in there. >> the guy got his foot chopped off with the lawn mower. >> that is hilarious. that is just a side of you that if people know you from mad men they don't know that you actually have this whole other plussel you can flex. >> it's nice to get the opportunity to that, i guess. it's nice to have both sides of it and part of the reason why i wanted to do the film was not only get a chance to work with zach who is a friend and is super funny and has the opportunity to do the goofy things and shoot guns and float around in weird tubes, but to get a chance to work with isla and gal who are both amazing, as well. we all had really great chemistry. it was a really fun shoot. >> it is fun. it is a fun movie. you should go see lorne. i loved it when you did snl. >> you guys have a weird thing that sends you right up to the floor. >> it's like the bank and you would get a lollipop that would
8:38 am
come back. >> stand by, we'll put you in. jon hamm, stand by. "keeping up with the joneses" is out october 31st. >> i like that look, kevin. first, this is "today

we're back now, 8:40. "rolling stone" called kevin hart's first stand-up mogul. he performed in front of 53,000 people in philadelphia, the first comedian ever to perform in an at-capacity football stadium, well documented in his new stand-up movie called "kevin hart what now." and in his new routine, he spares no one, not even his 7-year-old. >> he puts trash in the trash can. out of nowhere, my son takes off running. running as fast as he can. i got scared because i couldn't
8:41 am
see what he was running from. i shut the door. i told myself depending on what it was was going to determine if i open up the door or not when he got back. if it was something crazy, i'm just going to put my hand on the glass and say, son, touch the glass one last time. >> your own son? you're vicious, man. >> it's called good parenting. >> how are you? >> i'm good, man. good to see you. >> good to see you. what did it hit you standing on that stage, 53,000 people, i am a kid from philadelphia, grew up with some challenges in my family, former shoe salesman, 53,000 people paid money to watch me tell jokes. >> i mean, look, it's an unbelievable feeling. you know what, i brought it to philadelphia for a reason. that's where i was born and raised. i am the man i am today because of the city of philadelphia. so to be able to go back to my hometown and make history, sell out the lincoln financial stadium, it's unreal. to know that amount of people came out to laugh, that's a big
8:42 am
deal. there was so many different races, we had everybody in there, man. people. people. i put a bunch of people that forgot about whatever problems that were going on in the world and came out for a moment. >> i saw you do stand-up one time and you find a way at some point to connect with the audience but it's usually a more intimate audience. how do you connect with 53,000 people? >> that's a good question. that's the beauty about kevin hart. the thing about me, i love to take those big environments and turn them into intimate setti s settings. the best way hto do that is to engage. i'm a story teller. in a stadium, those monitors are huge, so no matter where you are, you feel like you're right there, you're a part of the show. >> how long does it take to come down from that high? >> i'm still on it. i'm still on it. this is a good high. >> speaking of highs, you just got married recently. >> i did get married. >> what would mrs. hart tell me is the best thing about being

9:03 am
didn't have this in california, but here on the east coast they have a thing called ghosting where your kids get a bag like this, a brown bag, and you fill it with candy and then you take it to your friend's house and you -- when i was growing up we called it ding dong ditch and we did it every friday night. now it's relegated to october. you give candy. >> ring the bell. >> and then you run. >> this is not halloween? >> so there's candy in here, not something else. >> there's like this little ghosted poem that says late last night we left you a treat. the tradition is fun, we hope you'll repeat. take the ghost and pin it on your door to let others know you need ghosting no more. now it's your time to pass along the surprise, two more families. gather some treats and deliver them soon under two nights under the moon. >> do you leave this note? >> you can print the thing out. >> tonight i go to one of my

9:07 am
so -- do you think this is for real? >> yeah, it looks real. it looks like it could be a real thing. >> is that just to kill time while the baby is eating? >> kids don't walk anymore in this country, they're on hoverboards. >> it's called swipe and feed and it solves one of the biggest problems, of course, checking your e-mails and trying to feed the baby. it's a kickstarter device. we hope to get our hands on it. if it's real, we want to see it in person. >> baby gift for dylan. >> i just want to turn off my phone for a little bit in the beginning. >> you have to, right? >> use your phone at night and then put the noise machine on using your phone too. >> you mean turn it off like connecticut to the world. >> just disconnect. >> you're going to lose your phone. my phones have it for pokemon go. your phone is no longer yours once you have kids. >> what is the kelly clarkson dance challenge? >> i don't know exactly. somebody said that she put down this gauntlet and she was starting it and it's part of the diabetes dance. you can raise money, it's a

9:14 am
so actually i wanted to do it last night, but we got done a little too late. but so far so good. >> does this recovery so far feel better, al? do you feel better now than you did the last time on the other knee? >> well, you know, it's hard to compare the two, because there is no comparison with childbirth. but i think the reason women get pregnant again is because they forget about the first time. any time there's a traumatic experience, i think you tend to forget some of it, at least i do. but we're having a great time and my daughter, lela, this was her first teddy bear. this is sammy. she brought sammy to me so that was kind of fun. >> that's what made it all easier, right? >> so sweet. >> yeah. little sammy. >> are you taking visitors?
