[ cheers and applause ] that is fantastic to hear. in that case, let's get to the news. during a speech last night, president trump claimed that the noise made by wind turbines
causes cancer. [ light laughter ] i've been trying to decide all day what the craziest part of that sentence is, and i think it's president. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] you know, i used to think trump was like the crazy guy on the subway, but now i think he's the guy that the crazy guy on the subway would warn you about. [ light laughter ] you're going to want to take the next one. [ applause ] former vice president joe biden has put out a new video addressing the recent allegations against him of unwanted touching, saying quote, "social norms have changed and shifted." well, if the president thing doesn't work out, another government agency already offered him a job. [ laughter ] [ applause ] fifteen defendants who were charged in last month's college admissions scandal appeared in court today, including actresses felicity huffman and lori loughlin. the courthouse was packed, but
somehow their daughters got in. [ laughter ] [ applause ] fox news will host a town hall event in pennsylvania this month with senator bernie sanders. it will give fox news viewers an opportunity to hear from someone younger. [ laughter ] i like this whippersnapper. new uniforms for the nfl's new york jets appeared to leak on twitter today one day before their official release. fortunately, by now the jets are used to things getting intercepted. [ laughter ] [ applause ] according to a new report, volunteers cleaning up trash from a new jersey beach picked up 565 condoms last year. said the jersey shore guys, "don't look at us. we don't use those." not me. [ laughter ] [ applause ] amc theaters has announced that it will screen a 59 hour
marathon of all 22 marvel universe movies. and if that isn't long enough for you, the next day they're showing one "lord of the rings"" [ laughter ] a hotel in england has launched a so called lemoga class which allows guests to do yoga in a room filled with loose lemur monkeys. well, they're loose now, you should have seen them before they did yoga. [ laughter ] [ applause ] that's a picture of a lemur after he heard that joke. [ laughter ] you're going to tell it on tv? [ laughter ] no, i get it. and finally an adult movie theater recently opened in amsterdam that will show pornography in 5d. viewings will be at 7, 7:03, 7:06, 7:09. [ laughter ]
ladies and gentlemen, we have a great show for you tonight. [ cheers and applause ] you can see him weeknights at 8:00 p.m. on msnbc's "all in with chris hayes." our friend chris hayes is back tonight. [ cheers and applause ] he is the host of "the rich eisen show" on direct tv's audience network, and "bleacher report live." rich eisen is back everybody. [ cheers and applause ] and we will have music from the strumbellas. so you're here on a very good night. [ cheers and applause ] before we get to that, the president gave a speech to a group of republicans last night where he said a bunch of insane stuff. for more on this it's time for a closer look. ♪ [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: it's been almost two weeks since trump's attorney general released a memo on special counsel robert mueller's final report. the memo said mueller had not established a conspiracy between the trump campaign and russia, but it also said mueller had not exonerated trump of obstruction of justice. so it was a mixed bag. but trump has declared himself
victorious and even threatened last week to keep the full report hidden from the public. >> the president, the same president who over the past week has said he's for the full release of the report wrote this. "the problem is no matter what the radical left democrats get, no matter what we give them, it will never be enough. just watch. they will harass, and complain, and resist, the theme of their movement. so maybe we should just take our victory and say no. we've got a country to run." >> seth: okay. first of all, you don't have a country to run because you don't run it. you outsource it to your collection of weirdos, while you go golfing things with kid rock. [ laughter ] by the way, i'm glad. i'm glad to see kid rock is respecting the flag by turning it into a fart catcher. [ laughter ] in fact, despite proclaiming falsely that he's been exonerated, some officials even within the white house are anxious that the president is getting ahead of himself before the full report comes out. one senior white house official said there will be plenty of unfavorable things about the
president, the full report, which we think will eventually come out. so let's not go overboard saying there's no wrong doing. let's move on. yeah, of course there will be damning things in the report because we know publicly is damning. mueller's report could literally just be a bunch of news articles about trump stapled together with a cover sheet that says, remember this stuff? [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] and while trump himself wants to declare victory and move on, he also seems stuck on his obsession with how mueller's investigation got started. the answer to that is simple. the fbi was investigating his ties to russia and then he fired the guy in charge of that investigation, and because his republican attorney general had recused himself, his republican deputy attorney general appointed robert mueller. but trump still wants someone to look into what he called, or what he tried to call the origins of the report. but he sad some trouble saying the word. >> i hope they now go and take a look at the oranges, the origins
of the investigation, the beginnings of that investigation. you look at the origin of the investigation. the mueller report i wish covered the oranges, how it started. [ laughter ] >> seth: yeah. [ laughter ] hey, mom. mom, i'm worried about grandpa. yeah. yeah, oranges. [ light laughter ] why does he keep saying oranges? is he hungry or is that always how he says it? did you see "captain marvel?" it's pretty good for an oranges story. [ light laughter ] and if you're confused by this you're not the only one. even the white house can't figure out what trump was trying to say. because in their official transcript of his remarks, the transcript that is published on the white house web site they had to invent a new word. here is how they spelled it. i hope they now go, and take a look at the oranges. i love imagining the stenographer who had to type that one out. take a look at the --
i don't know. just make something up. [ laughter ] that looks like how a child would spell it on a piece of cardboard if they opened up their own fruit stand. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] i mean, seriously though. is the white house going to do this every time trump makes up a new word? i mean, what about this one. >> god bless the united shates. [ laughter ] >> seth: oh no, does that mean they're going to have to change the signs at the airports? [ laughter ] and while trump's hung up on the oranges of the investigation, his supporters, like fox news host jeanine pirro are hung up on a different obsession. they want everyone associated with the report to go to jail. although i have to say, the way she ended her rant made it a lot less dramatic then she intended. >> this should never happen again.
and i can guarantee you it will happen again unless we make an example of the traitorous treasonous group that accused donald trump of being an agent of the russian government. these arrogant, lying, condescending, leaking haters of you and me, and the america that doesn't have power are going to do it again unless we stop them. and the only way to stop them is with justice, true justice and that's behind the bars justice. and that's my open. [ laughter ] let me know what you think on my facebook and twitter. #judgejeanine. [ light laughter ] >> seth: now, it really undercuts your authoritarian call for traitors to be thrown in jail when you end it by asking people to like you on facebook. [ light laughter ] you never saw stalin get on tv and say, "we will crush the opposition, and root out the traitors among us. and as always, please remember, like and subscribe." [ laughter ]
do not just like, subscribe too. so, it's been almost two weeks since mueller's report was delivered, and in that time, the question on everyone's mind has been, how would trump respond? would this strengthen him politically? what message would he focus on? and now we have the answer. as we learned at a rally last week, and again at a speech last night, trump had decided to spend the rest of his presidency doing impressions of windmills. >> if hillary got it, you wouldn't have that stat. i can tell you that right now. you'd be doing wind -- windmills. hillary wanted to put up wind. wind. if you have a windmill any where near your house, congratulations. your house just went down 75% in value. and they say the noise causes cancer. you told me that one, okay. [ grunting ] >> seth: so many questions. first, the idea that noise from windmills causes cancer is insane. but second, why does his impression keep changing?
[ grunting ] >> seth: you know cats. cats, they're either like meow, or woof, woof, woof, woof. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] but trump's -- trump's riff on cancer causing windmills was only the beginning. he also told the republicans in attendance they should be more careful about voter fraud which is nonexistent. in fact, the most prominent case of election fraud in 2018 was committed by a republican in north carolina. but trump kept insisting that something was going on. >> you got to watch those vote tallies. you know, i keep hearing about the election and the various counting measures that they have. there were a lot of close elections that were -- they seemed to every single one of them went democrat. if it was close, they say the democrat was -- there's something going on. hey, you got to be a little bit more paranoid than you are. okay? >> seth: more paranoid? [ light laughter ]
you already think windmills are causing cancer. [ laughter ] the only way you could be more paranoid is if you thought the windmills were committing voter fraud. [ light laughter ] the windmills, they're wearing disguises, and they're voting. oh, they're voting. i saw one in a polling booth, big hat, moustache. [ light laughter ] [ growling ] trump also expressed concern in that same speech that his remarks would get out to the press. trump was talking about something incomprehensible that's honestly not even worth explaining. the important part is the end of the clip. >> they put names, and you pick a name. ladies and gentlemen, i'm proud to announce so and so. i don't want to use names cause i'll get in trouble. somebody's going to leak this whole damn speech to the media. >> seth: leak it to the media? you're on tv. [ laughter ] you not -- you not see the cameras?
you not see the cameras? i can't believe i have to say that. you should be more paranoid. [ light laughter ] you're the president of the united states, and you're on television. we can all see you. [ light laughter ] you're like a guy live streaming himself on facebook screaming, i'm being watched. i mean i'm worried someone is going to leak this, and he's going to see it. [ laughter ] in fact, trump was so afraid to use names, that when he went after congresswoman alexandria ocasio-cortez who proposed the green new deal, he referred to her by her previous job instead of her current one. >> the green new deal, done by a young bartender, 29 years old. a young bartender. >> all right. first of all she's a member of congress, and her name is alexandria ocasio-cortez. we call you -- yeah. [ cheers and applause ] we call you, mr. president, not crazy windmill cancer guy.
[ laughter ] second, so what if she was a bartender? we need more working people, and women of color in politics. right now every senate hearing -- [ cheers and applause ] right now, every senate hearing looks like a clint eastwood movie where a bunch of old guys decided to pull one last heist. [ laughter ] whether you agree with the details or not, aoc has an ambitious plan to deal with an existential threat to the planet, and she's got everyone talking about climate change. trump on the other hand, tried to explain his trade policy last night, especially when it comes to countries that sell us cars, and it made no sense whatsoever. >> i said if you don't do this we're going to tariff every product coming out of your country at 25%. and every time i had a problem, i would just take, you know, especially cars, i had a little plastic car on my desk, and i'd have the leaders come over, and id' just take the car out, put it on the front of the desk, they say okay, we agree. >> seth: i do not believe that story. [ laughter ] you take out a little plastic -- how does that even work? mr. president, we have a trade deficit of $800 billion.
counterpoint. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] and while trump rambles about windmills, and attacks the green new deal, the democratic primary on the other hand, has been very policy focused. the candidates are talking about everything from climate change, to healthcare to voting rights. in fact, today, senator elizabeth warren unveiled a bill to make it easier to jail executives for company abuses. and when she was asked at a recent town hall about her plans to increase taxes on the wealthiest americans she could not contain her excitement. >> thank you senator warren for being here. how do you plan to make sure the extremely rich pay their fair taxes? >> whoa. [ laughter ] >> seth: damn, she reacted like she just landed a rover on mars. [ light laughter ] elizabeth warren reacts to taxing the rich the way the rest of us react to a surprise party. surprise! >> whoah! [ laughter ]
>> seth: she was excited to talk about it because whether you agree with it or not, people want to hear about it. they don't really care that much about mueller or russia. in fact, the website 538 found this week that trump hadn't seen a post mueller boost in the polls. in part because the russia investigation isn't a big priority for voters. most people have more immediate worries. like whether they have enough gas in the car, or can pay their water bill, and tomorrow is the kid's soccer game. and it's their to bring -- >> oranges. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: voters want to hear about stuff like healthcare and climate change. trump doesn't have a plan to deal with any of those issues. instead, he's spending his time rambling about wind mills to get through the next two years of this, we're all going to need a really good -- >> bartender. [ laughter ] >> seth: this has been a closer look. ♪ [ cheers and applause ] we'll be right back with chris hayes everybody. [ cheers and applause ] ♪

[ cheers and applause ] >> thanks for having me. >> seth: our first guest tonight is the emmy winning host of "all in with chris hayes" which airs week nights at 8 p.m. on msnbc. he also hosts a podcast, "why is this happening?" please welcome back to the show, our friend, chris hayes, everybody. ♪ [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: welcome back, buddy. >> it's great to be here. >> seth: i'm glad we mentioned of how your podcast is fantastic. >> thank you. i was glad you mentioned it too. i've been having a lot of fun with it. >> seth: and for those who don't know, you're basically -- it's sort of a single issue -- >> yeah. >> seth: which is very nice. because, sometimes having an hour in a podcast gives you a little bit more time to talk about something like brexit for example. >> exactly. yeah. deep dive. long conversation. you can, sort of, get into things a little more off the news cycle. talk about things other than the present situation.
>> seth: yes. [ light laughter ] you just hit six years. your anniversary. congratulations with the show. >> we did. yeah. thank you. [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: i'm sure the same question people like me get asked. do you get asked, "it probably feels a little bit longer than six years after everything that happened." >> it feels like my entire lifetime. >> seth: yeah. >> it really does. i mean, particularly the last few years. every week is a year. >> seth: yeah. i think that's about right. >> someone the other day -- today we were having a segment meeting and someone was like, "when the muller came -- when the barr report came out, you know, barr letter came out ten days ago." i was like, "i was like stop it." >> seth: yeah. it was only ten days ago. >> yeah. >> seth: and -- well, what's been nice is you have found time to talk about other thins and you hosted a town hall with alexandria ocasio cortez. >> yeah. >> seth: it was about the green new deal. >> yeah. >> seth: and i think, you know, again, something that on the surface people have heard a lot about but maybe not much more than that. >> yeah. it's funny. it's become this -- instantly became this, like, cartoonish villain for the right. i mean, trump tv talks about it, like, all of the time. >> seth: yeah. >> very few were people who
were -- people talking about the politics. they were talking about the criticism. very few people talking about it on its own terms. which is not to say like, "oh, this is the way to go." it's just, what is the thing? how would it work? what's the theory behind it? so, we wanted to, kind of, take some time to talk about it. >> seth: and did you find that being in a town hall format you got the sense that there are people out there now more than ever who accept climate change as a serious issue? >> i think -- it is one of the biggest generational divides in american politics. i mean, we did this thing, it was great. it was, like, 900 people. it was in the bronx, which is where alexandria ocasio cortez is from. it's from where i'm from. we did it in the hospital i was born in. >> seth: wow. >> funnily enough. >> seth: so, now it's getting creepy. >> yeah. [ light laughter ] in the l&d wing. which was weird for everyone. >> seth: yeah. >> no, we did it there. and one of the things i think you've seen that's been transformational, particularly in the last three to five years, is there's just grass roots energy around this issue. and for long time it was like, "oh, this thing that's happening off in the future and we should do something about it." but there are people who understand that we are on the front edge of it now. and we have to meet the challenge now. >> seth: i certainly enjoyed it. some people did not. you mentioned -- or you eluded
to the fact that, you know, the green new deal is -- fox news has certainly framed it as being very problematic. >> yeah. >> seth: and they do seem to have an obsession with aoc, a creator of bad things. >> yes. >> seth: tucker carlson, though, focused on you. >> he did. >> seth: and had this to say about you in the town hall. >> chris hayes is what every man would be if feminists ever achieved absolute power in this country. [ applause ] apologetic. the spectacle. and deeply, deeply concerned about global warming. and the patriarchal systems that cause it. [ laughter ] >> seth: i mean, of all of the things the idea -- >> bespectacled. >> seth: bespectacled. >> yes. >> seth: the idea that if the feminists take over we're all going to have to wear glasses? [ laughter ] >> no. it's true. the most macho thing you can do is drive your car without your glasses. >> seth: yeah. [ light laughter ] >> that is -- that is peak masculinity. >> seth: also, i don't know anything about tucker carlson. but he looks like a guy who needs glasses 'cause he's -- it's constantly like -- [ laughter ]
maybe he'd be like a little -- maybe that's it. we think he's like -- why is he so flummoxed. it's like, he can barely read the cue cards. [ light laughter ] >> he needs the feminists take over to happen sooner. i think that he did not quite recognize the context of that comment outside the confines of the bubble of fox news. >> seth: right. that it would escape and be -- yeah. >> it did escape. and it led to, basically, the best 24 hours of social media of my life. >> seth: yeah. [ laughter ] it's really nice. well, you -- >> it's like my birthday. i was like, oh, thanks. >> seth: and you're active on social media and you have war on dad bod. and i know a lot of dads out there, me included -- >> yeah, we're -- >> seth: we just think it's great you're out there fighting the dad bod. and, so, this is your instagram. do you want to read that for us right there? >> every quarter the femnarcist junta requires all adult males to present themselves for a fitness inspection. failure to pass results in summary execution. [ light laughter ] [ applause ] >> seth: that was -- i mean, i will say all things -- yeah. all things being equal -- a
zinger from tucker carlson to you is actually a lot more fun than a lot of stuff that comes out of fox. you know, i wish it was all -- >> oh, yeah. no. it was delightful. >> seth: all the zingers like that. yeah. >> exactly, yes. very low stakes situation. >> seth: yeah. that was -- you know, they were just going after you instead immagrants. i'd be like, "i'll take that trade, yeah." [ light laughter ] but do you have time to consume much fox news? >> no. i don't. i mean, you do see as things across your feed. we, you know, we have this thing where it's on. you know, it's on in the office. you got the three big cable news stations. and you sort of see what's on air on cnn. partly in sort of in point of comparison. what are people covering? what are the general stories that are driving that day? i will watch stuff online sometimes. i don't have a huge appetite for it. [ light laughter ] >> seth: sure. >> but i do end up seeing a fair amount. >> seth: yeah. >> yeah. >> seth: and do you have a sense that -- are you surprised by what you see or is it now -- have you come -- i mean, does it stop being surprising at some point?
>> no. you know what? what's sort of fascinating about it, it's, like, it is to news what, like, a broadway set is to an actual apartment. [ laughter ] like, it's -- you look at it, and your like, "that looks -- that kind of -- that sort of looks like news." [ laughter ] >> seth: yeah. >> but it's, like, this fabricated ersatz version of it. >> seth: yeah. >> and everyone, sort of, does all of this stuff inside the play acting set that is this little, sort of, universe they created. and so, it is sort of unnerving and it's surreal. and i think, to the degree that people exist inside just that world, it could be really toxic. >> seth: yeah. i think we found out that that is truth. [ light laughter ] >> i would also say, very true. it's the oranges of a lot of our problems. >> seth: yeah. it really is. [ laughter and applause ] [ cheers ] >> that's a call back. that's a guest doing a call back. you have been banging the drums on climate change, i think, more than a lot of people have. >> yep.
>> seth: do you -- you know, you were mentioning that, maybe, there's this, sort of, generational shift. do you feel like it's getting through to older generations? do you feel like -- >> yeah. i think what you're seeing -- you're seeing a real change in public opinion. there's two things that are happing. one is, i think the debate over -- is the climate warming is gone, basically. i mean, 15 of the hottest years have been in the last 19 years. like, everyone gets it. >> seth: yeah. >> there's still this, sort of, ridiculous thing about well, are humans causing it? that's also receiving background. the big question now becomes one of prioritization. i mean, there's lots of things happening in the world. a lot of things happening in this country. there's a lot of challenges and issues we face. and one of the key questions is, "do we understand this is priority?" is this something that we, sort of, structure and orient american policy around? that was the case in the new deal. and meeting the challenge of the great depression, it was the case of world war ii. it was the case for multiple decades for the cold war. i mean, from administration to administration, the u.s. government both domestically and internationally oriented itself around a singular challenge which it saw as defeating communism. the question for us now is, "do
we orient all of american social policy, economic policy towards this challenge or not. >> seth: i'm very happy when you take time to talk about things like this. obviously, there was, with the release of the barr memo about the mueller report and, again, we're still waiting for the report. but there was this criticism that came from a lot of different angles that maybe the media had focused too much on what the mueller report was going to be -- >> yep. >> seth: and what it was going to do. how do you -- looking back at the last two years, do you -- have reflected back on how you covered it all. >> yeah. >> i think we all have. i mean, the biggest thing to me is, a criminal and counter intelligence investigation for the president of the united states and his campaign is big news in any universe at any time. >> seth: right. >> one that ends up leading to his campaign manager going to jail. and his personal lawyer and fixer pleading guilty to crimes is an enormous deal as well. and the big thing that has driven us from the beginning and my feeling about the mueller report from the beginning is, there are many unanswered factual questions about what happened that we need to know the answer to. and the coverage was a way of
trying to get to the bottom of it, which we are still not at the bottom of. and i think that's entirely justified through any journalistic lens. >> seth: i want to show one last photo. because you've obviously been in politics for a long time. is this '04? is this -- >> that's '04, yeah. >> seth: 'o4. and you were an organizer. >> i was like a canvasser fueled organizer for an environmental group that was knocking on doors in support of john kerry. >> seth: there we go. look at that. [ light laughter ] when you walked up, they were like, "look at this bespectacled guy." [ laughter ] this bespectacled guy is going talk to me about the environment. i know it. >> he's deeply, deeply concerned. >> seth: yeah. they were like, this guy is not with the nra." [ laughter ] >> what did you find knocking on doors? >> you know, i loved that experience. i would knock on doors. i'd get other people to knock on doors. and i think one of the great things about it is, when we talk about politics from 30,000 feet up or you have a tv show you have to, sort of, simplify. put people in categories. people are so weird. >> seth: yeah. >> actual individual voters are just irreducibly strange. and the strangeness of both people and their political views
gets, sort of, smoothed out when you talk about categories. you know, like, "oh, this demographic is going for this person." but when you actually talk to people, people have all sorts of amazing combinations of sensible ideas combined with totally crazy ideas right next to each other. and you, sort of, remember just how much of a human enterprise democracy is. >> seth: it's supposed to be nice. i mean, it is. >> it is. it is. yeah. >> seth: i mean, it's terrifying because we -- >> it's both terrifying and inspiring. >> seth: yeah, you know, humans. yeah. we all know a few humans. or you'd be like, "oh, i'd rather not you." but -- [ laughter ] but i always appreciate you having here. congrats on six years. >> great to be here. thanks. >> seth: always a pleasure. >> thanks a lot. >> seth: chris hayes, everybody.

♪ ♪ >> seth: how are you? >> hello, sir. hello, everybody. >> seth: it's lovely to have you in new york city. >> it is. >> seth: you're doing your show in new york for the last couple of days. >> i am. i'm doing it here from the holland tunnel or i guess i should say studio. not from the mouth of the actual thoroughfare. but no, i'm here. it's -- i love it. i'm from new york city. i love being back. >> seth: that's great. and -- and then you're off to do -- it is your 15th nfl draft. is that correct? >> 15th -- >> seth: congratulations. >> nfl draft. thank you. >> seth: that's wonderful. >> i appreciate that. >> seth: and -- [ cheers and applause ] and how many -- how many years now has is it been a three-day affair? how many years -- >> about five now. >> seth: about five years. so this a -- this takes a lot. >> yeah. >> seth: that is a -- it is three long days. >> it is. it's very odd to say that it requires a lot of stamina to sit on your ass for as long as i do. [ light laughter ] >> seth: yeah. >> but it does. you got to sit up straight.
you're got to work on your core. >> seth: yeah. >> you know? and get through it. just take it one pick at a time. >> seth: and you have to know a little bit about a lot of players. >> yes. >> seth: right? >> yeah. >> seth: i mean there must be a ton of research. i'm not joking about that. >> it is -- it is a ton of research. but, you know, if -- in any doubt, you just say, "i think he's got a big upside." >> seth: oh, that's very good. [ laughter ] >> you know? >> seth: yeah. >> he's got a lot of ability. >> seth: oh, wow. >> and -- you know -- >> seth: now, i'm hearing that. and i realize i believed that a lot. [ laughter ] you've never -- >> he has no upside. he has zero ability. but, yeah. >> seth: and it's in nashville this year? >> it is. >> seth: first time -- first time in nashville? >> first time in nashville. >> seth: one of the best cities in america. >> yeah, i think they are legitimately shutting down broadway -- >> seth: oh, that's great. >> and making it the draft hall. and there's going to be hundreds of thousands of people there. and i can't wait to see it. >> seth: that is great. you -- the sitting aside -- >> yes. >> seth: there is another thing that you require, some actual training. >> yes. >> seth: how many years now for run rich run? >> i have done it now 15 years also. >> seth: 15 years as well. so -- [ cheers and applause ] a real quick explanation is one of the things that happens at the nfl combine -- >> yes. >> seth: is they time your 40 yard dash.
right? >> they run 40 yard dashes. that is the -- this is a metric by which players are rated. >> seth: a fast player at a fast position like a wide receiver would do it in a? >> 4.4. >> seth: gotcha. >> yeah. >> seth: so this is 15 years now. >> yes. >> seth: what is your best time? >> well, my best time is 5.96. >> seth: okay. >> but i think i should let everyone know, if you're unaware, i run it in a suit. >> seth: yeah. >> i run it in my uniform. >> seth: yeah. [ light laughter ] >> and -- >> seth: so that probably adds -- >> well at least a half second. >> seth: two full seconds. >> i appreciate your -- [ laughter ] yeah. it's not the most aerodynamic way to run. >> seth: and is this the first year that you've actually shown the simulcast to give people -- >> no. >> seth: sense -- okay. >> it was a few years ago where the nfl network came up with this brilliant construct of overlaying my 40 yard dash on top of the actual 40 yard dashes. >> seth: yeah. >> and it's -- it's visually striking. >> seth: and the brilliant thing -- [ laughter ] here's what's really brilliant about it is i, in my head, would have done it where you start at the same time. and we see how far ahead they do. >> yeah.
>> seth: they do a simulcast where they give you a head start. >> yes. [ laughter ] and then you watch them run through me. >> seth: well, i -- describing it now -- >> oh, i'm sorry. no, no, no. >> seth: i feel like the fun is taking a look. >> oh, we can see? great, let's take -- >> the buckeye, as you know, seven yard head start for rich. >> go. >> where's paris? where's paris? [ laughter ] oh, there he is. >> how about 230 pound receiver d.k. metcalf from ole miss? 4:33, five yard head start. >> five? ♪ come on. >> oh, we got to go to the michigan guys. >> oh, yeah. >> we got bush, gary and winovich. >> bush, gary and winovich. [ light laughter ] >> all three of them. >> seth: now, i do feel like -- [ cheers and applause ] that's very unfair. obviously not only are these soon to be professional athletes -- >> yeah. >> seth: but they are much younger men than you. but this was very nice. the nfl network then just showed us exactly how fast you are. they let you run against some regular people. who's this? >> well, i think we're about to see here a high school student who ran it. unbeknownst to him, he was being filmed at the time. >> seth: gotcha. >> and i think i actually did in
fact beat him. >> seth: okay. >> so we're about to see here. >> seth: let's see. >> every man wants to run these races. let's get simulcam guy, peter -- >> no. >> go peter. >> no. >> go peter. [ laughter ] >> no. >> we had a high school kid on thursday during rehearsal. this is no head start. >> get him, rich. >> this is a straight up race. >> high step on him, rich. [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: yeah. >> i feel so bad. as if, that young man's high school experience isn't awkward enough. >> seth: yeah. [ laughter ] >> here comes me. it's the worst john hughes movie ever. >> seth: yeah. it is a good first act of a john hughes movie. >> that's right. >> seth: you -- brady, tom brady reached out. >> yes. >> seth: and offered to help you train next year. >> yes. the nfl network put that whole escapade that we just showed on an instagram feed. and tb12 himself threw out a comment offering to train me next year. >> seth: yeah. >> and i mean, how do i not take him up on that?
>> seth: the interesting thing is, and again one of greatest football players of all time. >> yeah. >> seth: top five easy. >> yes. >> seth: you can make an argument for number one. yet not known as a running quarterback. >> no, he's not. >> seth: this is the first time -- i would argue this is the first time -- >> yeah. >> seth: he's seen anyone where he's thought, "i could teach him to run." >> i know. [ laughter ] he sees a mold of clay. >> seth: and what about belichick? he came over -- >> yeah. because we do this for charity now. we've done this for charity for the last few years. >> seth: it's for -- is it for -- >> for saint jude's -- >> seth: saint jude's. >> children research hospital. this year, we were able to raise a half million bucks. >> seth: that's fantastic. >> thank you. [ cheers and applause ] and thanks. it's great. everybody should go donate to saint jude. and so the nfl community has really gotten into it. and two years ago and also this year as well, bill belichick crashed the nfl network set at the combine. i'm working. i'm looking at the field. and this was two years ago. all of a sudden this big old paw just slaps a check on my notes right in front of me. and i see this big hand.
and then i see the piece of paper. it's a check for saint jude. it's very generous. and after i see the money, i look at the top. and i'm like, "who the hell is william belichick?" >> seth: yeah. >> and i'm like, "oh, god. that's --" and i look up. and there's the smiling face of the modern day lombardi looking down at me. >> seth: yeah. >> it was just really wild. >> seth: i -- >> to see his personal check and then to see his face. >> seth: i like that even in an act of kindness, he can be terrifying. [ laughter ] >> that's spoken like a true steeler fan. >> seth: yeah, as a steeler fan, here's my steeler question and then i'll let you go. there you go. your michigan -- devin bush, is he going to fall to the steelers at 20? >> i think if you're lucky -- >> seth: yeah. >> he will. >> seth: i'd be very happy about it. i don't think he is going to make it. >> i don't think so either. but he'd be -- he'd be really special right there. >> seth: he'd fit right in, right? >> there's another michigan wolverine, chase winovich who's from the area. >> seth: yeah. >> he's got a whole clay matthews look to him too. he'd be a perfect steeler also. >> seth: all right. thank you for that. i look forward to watching as always. thanks for being here. that's rich eisen, everybody.
