1:07 am
we were just tv and just hoping anyone would say something or step up and talk to us. and, you know, the president -- but, you stepped up. you were covered in soot, and i was like -- i love you so much, and i just -- i think that if anything, people just want to hug you at yankee stadium. just go up and go like, "thank you, you were just so calming." >> well, i did have a lot of help. i was on the shoulder of the heroes of some of the greatest heroes we've ever had. the firefighters and police officers and rescue workers who went into that building and saved more lives than anyone will ever know. >> jimmy: yeah. >> and so, when we get to celebrate the -- celebrate or memorialize, however you want to look at it, because it's the worst day and best day in my life. when we get to look at the 10th anniversary, please remember all those people who lost their lives trying to save other people. their families -- >> jimmy: tenth anniversary is coming up, right? >> their families are still missing them and suffering. so this pain isn't over with yet. >> jimmy: no, not at all. and you're going? are you going to be there? >> oh yeah, i'll be there. and, of course, president bush will be there and i'm sure president obama will be there. and governor pataki, who went through it with me.
1:08 am
he and i were partners 100% in dealing with it. >> jimmy: it's going to nice. >> and then every year since the first -- first year, we have a dinner at night of all the people that were involved. we were trapped in a building and luckily got out after a half hour -- 20 minutes, a half hour. so all the people whose lives were spared that night get together and kind of remember the people who weren't. >> jimmy: that's something you'll never forget. that's awful. speaking of president obama, there's rumors going around that you might, maybe, consider running for president. >> well, are you making an offer? >> jimmy: yeah. well, if you want to, you can do it on our show, tonight >> an offer i can't refuse. >> jimmy: yeah, exactly. i mean -- well, people are saying -- there was the harris poll came out and said that if you went right now and ran against president obama now, you would win. >> yeah, so would anybody else. [ laughter ] [ audience oohs ] right now. >> jimmy: that's a good point. that's a good point. >> i mean, here we are with the markets -- the markets going down, the president goes on television,
1:09 am
the market goes down more. >> jimmy: yeah. >> gee. >> jimmy: yeah, it's just been rough. >> he doesn't -- he doesn't have a clue. >> jimmy: are we in trouble? i mean, are we -- >> see, we're in trouble, but i don't think s&p should have downgraded us. i think the president is right about that. s&p is supposed to be -- is supposed to be evaluating the creditworthiness of our bonds, not our entire economy. i mean, that's a different kind of an analysis. american bonds are perfectly safe. they're going to be paid. they're guaranteed. we've got the largest economy on earth. if we can't pay our bonds, nobody can pay their bonds. so i think s&p was kind of making up for what a terrible job they did in dealing with the, you know, financial crisis of '07 and '08, where they were giving aa and great ratings to lehman brothers like the day before they went under. >> jimmy: oh, exactly. they're making up for that. >> this one -- this was a cheap shot against the united states. was not necessary. if you just focus on what are they rating? they're not rating our entire economy. they're rating, "can your bonds be paid back?" american bonds are going to be paid back.
1:10 am
they are guaranteed. even if we had gone into so-called default the first dollars would have to pay the bonds back and they would have been fine. >> jimmy: wow, interesting. >> so i think it was an unnecessary -- unnecessary damage to an economy that's got its own problems. we didn't need this one added on to it. >> jimmy: that's exactly right. when it rains it pours. >> yeah, yeah. >> jimmy: exactly. hey, did you get that ice cream cone i gave to you? >> that's why i came. >> jimmy: is that right? >> is that legal? >> jimmy: yeah, yeah. you can say that. yeah. >> can you get me an ice cream cone? >> jimmy: yeah, i gave you an ice cream cone, so you came on the show. from our favorite ice cream shop. >> when i was in public office, you know, the department of professional responsibility would come after me. i probably would have to pay you for it. >> jimmy: oh, is that right? >> yeah, here's 25 cents. >> jimmy: yeah, i figured i treat you for an ice cream cone. it was good? >> fabulous ice cream. >> jimmy: i was think, because we have our own flavor. it's late night snack. ben & jerry's made late night snack. [ cheers and applause ] it's really good. you don't have to try it now, but i'll give you a spoon here. about you if you do run for president you could be the ice cream president. you know how, like, reagan had jellybeans? >> right, right. >> jimmy: or clinton had, like, cinnabuns or mcdonald's or
1:11 am
whatever he was into. >> right, right. >> jimmy: you could have ice cream. >> that would be right. i love ice cream. i'm an ice cream addict. >> jimmy: i scream, you scream. we all scream for ice cream. that's what i'm talking about.
