10:04 am
south pole and i thought, okay, there's no way we're going to be able to interview him. no, they called a week ago and said, no, no, buzz is good. he'll see you down there. >> that guy is amazing. look at that. look at that shot. really cool. as a matter of fact, freezing cold. >> and what did he say about john glenn? >> that he was the epitome of what this country is all about. he said just a good, solid guy from the midwest, from ohio that really about the space program and everything that's good about this country. and he said -- he goes, look, he's a pretty good pilot even though he was a marine. >> it never stops. >> but they first met each other in '53 during the korean war. and then hook up again together in 1963 at nasa. >> so cool. >> what a legacy. >> that was a good day for you. >> listen, i was actually out on one of the launch pads, which i had never been before.
10:05 am
you're standing there then with buzz aldrin. >> who was inside one of those things that went up. >> and here's the interesting thing he said. i said what does it feel like, this 600 million pounds of thrust. he said you don't feel it. on those -- on the rocket they went up on, he said the only reason they know they were going up is they could see the instruments. >> really? that's >> really? that's incredible. >> because they're back in those couches. >> couches. >> that's what he called them. >> i was at the final space and the vibration -- first of all, i started crying. i didn't expect it, i just started crying live on air because it's majestic. but the vibration as far away as we were, it's like -- i describe it it was like a spiritual experience meets just some kind of kinetic energy that i could not -- >> your soul vibrates. >> i never felt that way again. >> i took my son a couple of weeks ago for the launch of the gozar satellite. you can feel it. it's unbelievable.
10:06 am
thing with buzz? >> it's online now. >> we had the interview this morning for that part, but we'll have the fuller interview about his secret for longevity, that will be coming up in a couple of weeks. >> he's just so cool. so while you were doing that. >> yes. >> i was on msnbc yesterday -- >> hey. >> it's a party over there. and i was thinking about al roker because one of his favorite people was just a few blocks away. >> what was that like when you saw that video, the video of kanye west going into trump tower and meeting with the president-elect. >> in full disclosure here, i got this video sent to me right before al was leaving the building yesterday. i ran up to him and said you've got to see this, al, guess who's at trump tower. kanye west with new blond hair visiting the president-elect. after the meeting he said i wanted to meet with trump today to discuss multi-cultural issues.
10:07 am
bullying, supporting teachers, the violence in chicago, kanye is from there. he ended it, though, with this, #2024. >> why wouldn't he have gone with 2020. >> because he thinks trump will have two terms. he actually got booed at a concert, he said he didn't vote but if he had, he would have voted with trump. his fans took issue with that. now he's believing that trump will have two terms and he'll perhaps come in. >> i do wish he had voted, though. >> 45% i think of the available electorate didn't vote and that surprises me. >> especially not to get too political about this, but given the number of people who fought and died for the right to vote -- >> well, the president-elect had not voted in a couple of general elections either, so the current -- so the bottom line is you should. you don't have to, but it is -- >> that's the thing, you don't have to, but you probably should. >> but in 2024 you could be
10:08 am
>> maybe i'll make an exception. just kidding. >> that will provoke a lot of conversation. >> yes, it will. >> absolutely. >> the other thing there's so much conversation, people were calling me, i was getting on my e-mails about just the shock of the sudden death of alan thicke. >> i was at dinner and the hollywood reporter, my tweets went off and i saw it. he was just here with his wife. he was visiting us, talking about his reality show. >> yeah, 69 years old. and in great shape, ay hockey with his son. >> yeah. that's amazing. i feel like everybody lost a dad, you know what i mean? he was like the dad to america. and for me growing up watching him for all those years, he just seems like the nicest guy. >> he is. >> he was just on "this is us." in the commercial break, you've been on our show, some people will engage and talk and others kind of zone it. he was the exact same person in the commercial break talking to
