good morning. back to his old ways? after days of taking the high road, donald trump takes a shot at hillary clinton's health. >> you think hillary would be able to stand up here for an hour and do this? i don't know. >> as clinton returns to the trail today and rele m her medical records, trump brings his doctor's report to a tv medical show. >> your bmi is high. >> this morning dr. oz joins us live. scandal grows. hackers releasing another batch of data, the private information from at least ten more american olympic athletes exposed. is there more to come? nbc news investigation. the canine teams the tsa relies on to sniff out explosives at
this morning what the agency is saying about those alarming results. and too hot to handle? >> oh, my gosh. >> dramatic video of car engulfed in flames, the owner claiming it was his samsung galaxy 7 phone that sparked the fire, and the company once again urging customers to power down and trade in their "today," thursday, september 15th, 2016. >> announcer: from nbc news, this is "today" with matt lauer and savannah guthrie, live from studio 1a in rockefeller plaza. good morning, everybody. welcome to "today," it is a thursday morning. we've got willie in for matt this morning. so much unusual about this campaign. add another thing. here we have a candidate for president releasing medical records. that's normal. but doing it on a tv show. >> dr. oz is here. he's in the building. he's going to tell us exactly what was in the papers handed to him by donald trump and give his assessment of trump's health in
but we'll start with the state of the race today with the election now in 54 short days. after her bout with pneumonia, hillary clinton returns today to the campaign trail. her first stop -- north carolina. she'll also join president obama for an awards gala in washington. donald trump starts his day right here in new york before heading to a rally in new hampshire later. again, his appearance on "the dr. oz show" opening up about his health, well, that actually airs today. and a new leading among likely voters in the key state of florida. he's topping secretary clinton by three points there. 47%-44%. we've got it all covered. let's start with nbc national correspondent peter alexander. we'll talk to dr. oz in a moment as well. peter, good morning to you. >> reporter: savannah and willie, good morning to you. hillary clinton back on the campaign trail today. it couldn't come too soon for democrats with donald trump for the first time in this race really gaining momentum. within the last 24 hours, we've seen another clear contrast between these two candidates and their campaigns on strategy and
with clinton releasing detailed medical records to the public, donald trump releasing more limited information to dr. oz. donald trump in ohio while hillary clinton's recuperating at home. taking new shots at his opponent's stamina. >> i don't know, folks. you think hillary would be able to stand up here for an hour and do this? i don't know. i don't know. i don't think so. >> reporter: but later adding -- >> in all fairness, she's lying in bed getting better. and we want her better. we want her back on the trail. >> reporter: on the trail in flint, michigan, still plagued by a water crisis, trump interrupted by the pastor at an african-american church as he began to blast his rival. >> now hillary clinton -- >> mr. trump -- >> oh, oh, oh, okay. okay. >> reporter: after three days off, clinton's back campaigning today. her doctor reported she's recovering well with antibiotics and rest.
voters about her health, releasing a fuller look at the 68-year-old's medical history. clinton's physician detailing her medications, including one for her thyroid and a common blood thinner prescribed after suffering multiple blood clots since 1998. her doctor concluding clinton remains healthy and fit to serve as president of the united states. and for the first time adding she is in excellent mental condition. for her former reality tv star rival, aor with tv physician dr. oz. >> why not share your medical records? why not -- >> well, i have really no problem in doing it. i have it right here. i mean -- should i do it? >> reporter: sharing the results of a recent physical. his diet, trump favors fast food, he told oz, because he says he knows what's in it. his workout routine, all those hand gestures during speeches, he joked. >> you're 6'3", 236 pounds. as i mentioned. in my mind i'm thinking your body surface area and your bmi is high. >> yeah.
it's tough because of the way i live. but the one thing i would like to do is be able to drop 15, 20 pounds. >> reporter: underscoring the importance of this conversation about the candidates' health, the fact that if elected, donald trump would be the oldest first-term president ever at age 70. hillary clinton the second-oldest. she turns 69 next month. but both these candidates really hoping the pace of demonstrate that they each have the endurance needed to serve. willie and savannah? >> peter alexander, thank you. let's bring in dr. oz. good morning. seems like it was a genuine surprise him handing you this piece of paper with medical results. didn't give you a big chance to really look at it beforehand. was that a disadvantage or could you tell just by looking right then and there whether it was legit and comprehensive? >> the letter is a typical document one physician would give another regarding a
letters like that like later today at columbia, you process them pretty quickly. it was a comprehensive battery of tests. some from last week. other tests he's had traditional screening tests, colonoscopies, heart scans and the like. i invited both candidates because i know there's a big issue in this campaign, onto the show. mr. trump agreed to come. i was surprised when he produced those records. all i really wanted to do was things that a doctor would want to ask somebody. >> you asked additional questions. >> head to toe, just give me a quick idea what's going on in every part of your body. i wanted to try to help with some clarity with the help of the candidates, which is why, again, i hope secretary clinton will accept the invitation. we are a much more informed country today than we were yesterday about the health of our candidates. >> a lot of people expected donald trump to release these publicly.
have in you, unqualified that donald trump is healthy enough to be president? >> the records that i got, without question, indicate he's healthy enough to be president. if i as a doctor had a patient like him, i would think -- say he is in good health for a man of his age and i would send him on his way. and i think that is, again, reflective of the fact that he's had appropriate screenings throughout the years. i did not do the tests myself, so i can't confirm that the data was all right, but the is clear. >> i think people expect the standard to be a little higher for somebody that wants to be president rather than a routine check-up for someone who would come in to your office, wouldn't you like to see more of the health records or perform some of the examinations yourself? >> he had a stress test done on his heart. that's the test a ceo of a company would get. the letter that i read would be typical for a person who's running a company rngs and i think that's pretty parallel. not exactly the same, but pretty parallel to know or judge if somebody is healthy enough to
people looked at this and said what is a presidential candidate doing on a tv doctor show. were you concerned at all about being, for lack of a better word, kind of used in that way? >> well, i invited both candidates to come on a month ago. mr. trump agreed last week so, long before secretary clinton became ill. the invitation to her is still open. i'd love to have that conversation as well. but i am a real doctor. i still practice medicine. i have a show that reaches millions of people, especially folks who are focused on the health topic. i think it is a very logical thing. why not release it on a show that talks to people every day about health and have some you're not just throwing a bunch of numbers in a newspaper or a reporter. you're actually given a date with a doctor who can guide you through what it means. >> dr. oz, thank you. by the way the full interview airs today. check your local listings for the show today. also this morning, we're learning more about that cyber attack targeting former secretary of state colin powell. his e-mails published online revealing scathing takes on both donald trump and hillary clinton. and now trump is responding. nbc's andrea mitchell has the
andrea, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, willie. new concerns this morning that russia may have been involved in that hacking of colin powell's e-mails. a senior federal law enforcement official telling nbc news that u.s. authorities now believe that the website that obtained powell's e-mails has direct ties to russian intelligence. >> reporter: overnight donald trump fighting back, tweeting "i was never a fan of colin powell after his weak understanding of weapons of mass destruction in iraq. it comes as powell is caught in the middle of presidential politics. a trove of personal e-mails hacked revealing devastating criticism of donald trump and even surprisingly tough comments about hillary clinton. in his july 2014 e-mail, powell who had endorsed president obama reveals he's not sure about supporting clinton. powell writing, i would rather
although, she is a friend i respect, describing her as having a long track record, unbridled ambition, greedy, not transformational. powell then used crude language in referencing tabloid reports about bill clinton. and in march of 2015, powell e-mailed a clinton backer about how hard hillary clinton was pushing herself. on hdtv she doesn't look good, he wrote. she is working herself to death. in an e-mail last month, powell turned his focus to donald trump telling a former aide, "all his lies and nonsense just pile up." and dismissing trump's outreach la takes us for idiots." in e-mails this summer, powell also called trump an international pariah and a national disgrace. he called trump advisor retired army lieutenant general michael flynn right-wing nutty. so far neither campaign has responded to nbc news' request for comment. the e-mails released as part of the hack were obtained by d.c. leaks. a senior federal law enforcement official now telling nbc news that u.s. authorities suspect the russians either created d.c. leaks outright or are using it
>> russia is able not only to use cyber tools but information warfare to influence. that's something significant. it's strategic. and it's different. >> reporter: and this latest cyber attack comes just days after a cyber attack against the dnc which released numbers, cell phone numbers, including tim kaine's personal cell phone number. if this is proved, it would be the first known attempt by a foreign power to interfere with willie and savannah? >> andrea mitchell, thank you. after hammering parts of florida, the remnants of tropical storm julia are now slowly moving up the southeastern coast bringing more heavy rain. dylan is on that story this morning in for al. good morning. >> good morning. yes, we did have tropical storm julia. now it is a tropical depression,
rain, especially across south carolina. take a look at charleston where cars are trying to drag through some of those flooded streets. again, never recommended. so they did shut down some of the roads because of the flash flooding. charleston picked up just over 3 1/2 inches of rain, but other parts of south carolina received as much as 5 1/4 inches of rain. now the good news is this storm is going to continue to move east at only 2 miles per hour though. so it is going to sit and linger for the next couple of days. winds are up to 35 miles an hour. we do have some bands of rain but nothing too heavy. the heaviest of the rain is going to stay out over the water, and look at what over the next several days. while we aren't going to see a lot more additional rain with it, we could see minor coastal flooding at the time of high tide because all of this water will continue to push onshore, especially in south and north carolina. here's the bull's-eye for the heaviest rain you see out over the water. but we still could see an additional half inch up to an inch of rainfall, especially along the coast of north carolina, but it is really at this point more the rip currents and minor coastal flooding that's the concern. >> dylan, we'll check back with
rest of the forecast. meanwhile a suspect is behind bars this morning in connection with the arson fire earlier this week at a florida mosque once attended by the gunman in the pulse nightclub attack. nbc's kerry sanders is following that investigation for us. kerry, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, willie. the sheriff says the man who set fire to this mosque is 32-year-old joseph schreiber. he lives three miles from here in a town called port st. lucie. but this morning he is being held in jail, without bond, charged with arson and w his social media is filled with anti-islamic sentiments. this morning, deputies in st. lucie county say the man who set fire to this mosque has been caught. he's 32-year-old joseph schreiber -- the same man authorities say seen running from the mosque on this surveillance video just seconds after flames lit up the house of worship. deputies took him into custody on the street wednesday
of a tip from a community member. >> reporter: authorities say he had multiple anti-islamic posts and comments on his facebook page. a july 12th posting reads, if america truly wants peace, and safety and pursuit of happiness, they should consider all forms of islam as radical. all islam is raid cal and should be considered terrorists and criminals. schreiber who is jewish attended temple bethel, but he was not a member of the congregati >> he was very kind, very open and very accessible. >> reporter: a representative of the muslim community says they are relieved schreiber has been caught. >> it boils down to hate. we will not judge this person based on what religion they are because we know that it doesn't speak on behalf of his religion. >> reporter: at the home where
with his parents, they gathered evidence, secluding this motorcycle, which investigators say is consistent with the one caught on video a short distance from the mosque the night of the fire. meanwhile this morning, much of the mosque is just a burned out shell. >> this was harmful to the community. this was a place of worship and it was very important for the community that we brought this individual to justice. >> reporter: the hate crime enhanced arson charge here carries a maximum 30-year sentence if convicted. but because schreiber has been faces what's known as a habitual offender charge, which could land him in prison p for the rest of his life. his parents are said to be in shock but have had no contact. willie and savannah? >> kerry sanders, thanks. thanks, kerry. other news now. world anti-doping agency has suggestion hackers have released a second batch of confidence medical information. the group calls itself fancy bears and it published the data
countries, including the u.s. the group alleges the athletes had taken banned substances. however, the documents appear to be related to so-called therapeutic use exemptions which allow athletes to take prohibited substances if they have a verified medical need. on tuesday medical information of gymnast simone biles and also tennis stars venus and serena williams, well, that information was hacked and posted online. more fallout over north carolina's so called bathroom bill. all acc championships will be mo this academic year. that includes the conference's football championship scheduled for charlotte in december. the decision comes two days after the ncaa announced it is pulling championship events out of that state. it's all a result of house bill 2, a state law that limits anti-discrimination protections for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people.
of taiwan and southeastern china and 44 people were injured. the typhoon knocked out power to almost 1 million homes there, shattered windows on tall buildings and disrupted water lines. the typhoon has been downgraded to a tropical storm and it is expected to weaken more as it moves north. back to that alarming video we showed you at the top of the show. a florida man says his cell phone exploded while he was driving. he pulled over, got out just in time as his car burst into flames. the owner says it was a samsung galaxy s 7 that's not the same phone recalled by samsung recently over fire concerns. that's the samsung note 7. the company is telling note 7 owners to stop using their phones. it should be noted fire officials have still not said what caused the car fire you are looking at right there. >> scary pictures. dylan is back with the rest of the forecast. what's shaking? >> besides some of the rip currents in the southeast, we are going to see a really nice day in the northeast.

trump from taking a jab at her last night. >> you think hillary would be able to stand up here for an hour and do this? i don't know. i don't think so. >> in a tweet overnight, trump responded to harsh words aimed at him in hacked e-mails from colin powell saying the former secretary of state's understanding of weapons of mass destruction in iraq was a disaster. now to "today's" campaign moment. this hasn't happenen years. this year the "new hampshire union leader" will not endorse the republican candidate for president. instead of backing donald trump, the union leader has given its nod to the libertarian in the race, gary johnson. the paper's publisher called johnson and his running mate a bright light of hope and reason in dark times. now to the curious case of a 60 tall portrait of donald
hallie, good morning. >> reporter: hey there, willie, good morning to you. as this morning, we learn a little bit more about where that portrait may be. here's why it matters. it could be one of the keys to an inquiry happening now into the trump foundation. today, the hunt for where it hangs. a 6'0" tall portrait of donald trump, now a symbol of new questions surrounding his non-profit. back in 2007, at a charity event at on a portrait of her husband created that night by speed painter michael israel. >> i remember the first bid was $10,000. then she graciously increased that bid to $20,000. >> reporter: a donation from the trump foundation was received. where is that portrait now? if it is at trump's house or one of his businesses, he could be violating irs rules buying
philanthropy's money. >> the painting has to be used for charitable purposes. can't just be used to decorate donald trump's golf club or his house. it is important to know where the paint something now and how he's used it. the hair is really the star of this portrait and that's sort of done in these bright orange and kind of light brown strokes. >> reporter: now, he's trying to find it. people tweeting him pictures of other giant trump portraits. but so far, not the one in the trump campaign hasn't said where that is, but there is a new clue today. someone who tells the "post" he shipped it after that charity auction to trump national golf club in new york. the portrait, a political flash point. even for president obama pouncing. >> the other candidate's foundation took money other people gave to his charity and then bought a 6'0" tall painting
the 1'0"-foot version. >> this is just standard operating procedure. i'm like a traffic cop. if someone drives by going 90 miles an hour, i have to give them a ticket. >> reporter: sniderman, a democrat, and trump have a history with each other. a top trump aide cng ag's inquiry "a left-wing hit job designed to distract crooked hillary's week." >> you paid for your own 6'0" portrait. just to come clean. >> it was very expensive. it was all done in diamonds. >> i'm shorter. mine was only 5'0". >> dylan, what's going on? >> we have to keep an eye out for some storms today. in the plains we have heavier
off to the east. but this area through here that includes most of central and eastern nebraska where we could see large hail, damaging winds and also isolated tornadoes. we still have the risk from southern north dakota stretching all the way down into parts of texas where we could see some of those storms develop as well. this cold front will move eastward, these storms will fire up, minneapolis later on this evening and into tonight could even see heavier that could create some delays at the airports. by 5:00 friday, these storms are getting closer to areas like green bay, chicago and st. louis, too. as for rainfall, we're only looking at a widespread inch or two.
>> and that's your latest forecast. >> dylan, thank you very much. just ahead, why you can thank your mom for how smart you are -- or >> in whose case? we'll work through that in a minute. plus, tsa canine teams failing critical tests to sniff out explosives at major airports. the alarming results of an nbc the alarming results of an nbc news i

they detect explosives. >> reporter: their mission is to keep bombs out of airports and off of airplanes. but we've learned canine teams at some big airports have failed certification tests dozens of times. the tsa says some failures are expected in a program with very high standards. but multiple failures at some airports raise questions about whether those teams havee protect you. at big airports, security officials count on canines to sniff out explosives. checking bags, cargo, even passengers. >> dogs have always been considered the gold standard in explosive detection. so when you're considered the best, you better be the best. >> reporter: but tsa records obtained by nbc news raise questions about some of the nation's top dogs.
tsa-funded canine teams failed certification tests. at ten large u.s. airports from january 2013 to june 2015. the most recent data available. the records show some teams failed to find explosives. others had too many false alarms that could lead to unnecessary airport evacuations. teams that fail are not allowed to work at airports again until they can pass. at washington dulles airport, records show canine teams assigned to failed ten times in that two and a half year period. at love field in dallas, four tests failed. 21 tests failed at lax in los angeles. l.a. airport officials say trainers made changes and all teams passed more recent tests. >> the reality of it is, is that humans are fallible. canines are fallible. but we got to work every single day for 100% compliance. >> reporter: experts tell us
time. >> you need to convince that dog that there is a reason to work. >> reporter: john pierce used to advise the tsa. he says in airportsing with dogs rarely find explosives, so unless they practice often with test explosives, they may lose interest. and without constant practice, canine handlers may fail to recognize the dog's cues. his advice -- >> train, as you're going to work. >> reporter: that approach seems to be working at the nation's busiest airport in atlanta. >> ready to go to work? seek. >> reporter: records show canine teams there passed 97% of the time, including all atlanta police canine teams. they attribute their success to senior handlers who mentor younger ones. >> we train every single day. >> reporter: a 2013 congressional investigation found some canine teams were repeatedly not in compliance
requirement. since then, tsa says it's made changes, including a new program starting this fall to hold airports more accountable for training. and at airports where teams failed multiple times, some experts hope more supervision and training will help. >> you don't get a do-over in real life. if that team misses an explosive device, then that's a device that can end up on an airplane. >> reporter: now just last night, tsa provided some updated numbers showing passed nationwide during the last six months of 2015. today, eight teams are decertified. 27 teams failed during that final six months of 2015. tsa will not say at which airports for security reasons. in a statement, the agency says, our canine teams are highly effective. if a team does not meet tsa's rigorous guidelines, it is decertified and restricted from working. the team must successful meet certification standards before returning to search duties.
return to tsa's high standards are subject to removal. now tsa has a new program in place now with tougher training requirements for their own teams. those tougher standards will also apply to all local airport police teams starting october 1st. >> important stories. thank you so much. still to come, the debate sparked by a pregnant olivia wilde's twitter take-down of a subway rider who didn't offer up her seat. >> carso there. what was the huge moon doing rolling through the streets? where was it, what's going on? ca my mother passed 2003 in my freshman year. but she always told me i don't care what happens. i don't care if you turn out to be a great athlete or whatever but, you need to make sure you get your college degree. sometimes i call the house just to hear her voice.

carson is at his post over in the orange room. what's up? >> charlie is asleep. i'll do this without waking him hopefully. this giant moon-shaped balloon has been on display in china to celebrate the mid autumn moon festival. people have been stopping by to pose for some pictures with it. the balloon became a much bigger sensation when this video surfaced online. take a look at it. the crew is attempting to dismantle the display to gear up for the typhoon. they lost control of the balloon. it sent it through highways, cars, people. i want to mention that the typhoon which is now, thank god, a tropical storm. we are happy to report there are no injures from the report of the moon balloon's journey throughout china. social media couldn't stop themselves. here come the puns. when the moon hits your eye like a big pizza pie, you're in china. it's much easier to shoot for

>> and that's your latest forecast. it's been three and a half weeks since charlie joined us. in that short time he's already grown ten pounds, believe it or not. and now a true new yorker, charlie took his first taxi ride. glad he came back. but we've also learned that he loves bath time and he's getting used to being in the spotlight. we have olivia, our puppy raiser here. what are some other traits on charlie's resume? >> this week we introduced him to he is also learning how to put his head through the vest when it is time to go to work. so those are two of the things we did this week. >> we don't know exactly in which way he will be helping a veteran when he finally finishes his training. what are some of the specific things are you working on this week to determine that? >> correct. this week we were working on a couple of hearing dog sounds. so charlie may go on to help a veteran who has experienced a hearing loss. and so he was introduced to the telephone, the smoke alarm and
charlie's just being encouraged to recognize and acknowledge those sounds. but in the future, he will be able to identify the sounds, nudge his handler to alert him, and then take the handler to the source of the sound. >> charlie comes across as very lovable, very calm. does that help with the whole training process? >> he has a wonderful temperament and, yeah, he makes us look good. >> he loves his mate, carson. you guys were making out before. >> charlie is always asleep in olivia's like, no, you should have seen him 20 minutes ago. >> we love having you. thank you so much. keep up the good work. let's head inside to savannah and hoda. >> thank you, guys. ever feel like your beauty routine is just confusing? >> yes. >> we feel like that a lot. always seems like there is no new rules when it comes to putting on makeup. even washing your face. >> but how much is fact and how much is fiction? today.com's senior style editor
all these -- all things face. >> is it fact or fiction you should wash your face twice a day? >> the answer is true. absolutely should. but there are a few caveats with it. use a cleanser like this so you can see how they're smooth, no beads. an exfoliator that has beads in it, this one actually has almond in it. >> should you use exfoliators every day? >> o >> i like those scrubby once. >> you can irritate your skin if you do that. be careful. just once a week you should be fine. >> wash twice a day but and gentle cleanser, twice a day, morning and night. >> what about the contraptions they have? >> this is also a little bit confusing. depends on the bristles. it's really not soft like this. this is fine for twice a day.
skin. >> firmer brushes or something that's a little bit tougher, that is an exfoliator. so it is used the same way. >> i basically use a welder on mine. >> if someone has oily skin, should you change your moisturizer? should you use it less often? >> you should actually use moisturizer. that's a common misconception. people feel like oily skin, you shouldn't moisturize. still moisturize. but there is a right way to do it. go from the outside and work your way in. the t-zone is the most oily. you want your dry parts on the outside to get the most amount of product. >> oh, that's interesting. >> this is the t-zone here? >> the forehead here, and the nose and chin. that's where a lot of the break-outs are, too. but really -- >> but are you using moisturizer for oily skin? >> yeah. i mean you can try a different kind of product. but definitely don't stop applying. if your skin is too dry it will
it is oily skin, too. it still needs moisturizer. >> are you in the foundation department? >> i -- haven't we all been doing this since like 1922? if you want to test your foundation you put it on the inside of your wrist because it is supposed to match your face. is that true? >> you have to be careful. your skin down here is getting a lot off different sun than your face. i try this on my hands. it is going to look a lot different than what' line. which would you choose? >> this bottom matches. >> i'm wearing this one on my face. it is a completely different skin tone there. >> where is the spot you should test it? say you are in a store. >> always on your jaw line. try a little piece of skin here. try to blend it out a little bit. you'll see if it mixes right in there. >> okay. >> the last one, is it true or not that you should do when you
makeup first, then do your foundation? >> that's true. everyone things they want to make their skin look completely clear first. but really with the powder it kind of goes everywhere. you can make a lot of mistakes. especially if if you're doing a fancy night out look. do your eye makeup first and you can always fix everything in the end with the concealer. >> in the morning when they do our makeup, they do foundation first, then the eyes. that's the way she >> but for people who are just novices, this would be the best. >> on the weekend when i try to do a smokey eye to go out to the cafeteria at 6:00, i do my eyes first because it gets all over. >> exactly. you can still wash your face even if you make a big mistake. >> check out "today's" pinterest page. we have a pinterest page? >> do you napchat? >> yes, i do.
because being able to play all day is pure michigan. your trip begins at michigan.org. we are back now at 8:41 with the great mike lupica, one of the country's most prominent sports columnists and a best selling author. in a second. but first let's talk about colin kaepernick, protests of the national anthem that have been going on for several weeks now. the nfl has effectively said we encourage our players to show respect, to stand for the anthem, but we support their right to kneel. how has the league handled this one? >> i think it handled it well. i think it will stop or they'll take a tougher stance when they start to think it is bad for business. i respect what he's done. i do. i don't think it's become a
the country. but it is also not the freedom marches. i think he really hurt his own cause, kaepernick did, by predating this, by wearing socks that depicted policemen as pigs. i think it works against what he's trying to say. and what bothers me, willie, about this thing is, i think other guys are joining in who aren't quite as passionate about this as kaepernick is and they're sort of treating it like it is the ice bucket challenge. you know? so it is a big complicated nuanced story. beliefs and his right to do it. >> another big topic in the nfl, matt had an exclusive interview with commissioner goodell yesterday in which the commissioner announced a $100 million program to make football safer, not just in the nfl but all the way down the line to junior football. the nfl clearly now recognizes it has a problem here. how are they handling this one? >> it is good. remember, willie, when they had that footballess family campaign last year, they were really
this isn't goodell's fault. the league got religion really late in the church service about concussions, head wounds and all the rest of it. but ultimately it is a violent sport. it is always going to be a violent sport. they can spend $300 million or $500 million. there is always going to be an element of risk. i wonder at some point if nfl players are going to have to sign a waiver saying we understand the risks of playing this sport for a long time that will protect the league from being sued from now until the end of time. >> in some ways, if have the feeder from the bottom and kids stop letting their kids play football, it affects generations ahead. you've got boys. what's that conversation like with your kids if they say, dad, i want to go play football? >> willie, i can't write books about football and say, this is a clear and present danger to the youth of america. would i have preferred they not play? two of my boys played one year in football and never got their
it was a pacifist approach. but i believe that everything that can be done is being done. but there is going to be an element of risk from pop warner -- my new book is set in pop warner. on. >> let's talk about your new book. you always give your characters in these books a hurdle to climb before they get where they're going. >> this is the most i've ever thrown at a character. tommy gallagher is the son of a hero firefighter. as a new yorker, i wanted to write a book about a firefighting family. and he loses his dad. spoiler alert. in the first chapter, his dad goes in to get one more kid. it is the classic story. they go in when everybody's out. they find out there is one more child in a burning building. tommy by now knows the difference between the sound of a fire around the sound of an ambulance. he hears both while he is wondering why his father's not up in his perch in the stands where he's always been. and that starts the action of the book. and it's a book about courage
