On "Fox & Friends" this morning, Granville said Piscopo was feeling fine and didn't need help to cross the finish line, and it was just a spur of the moment decision to complete the race in style.
"I had no idea it would turn in to something like this," he said of the viral video, which has been viewed on Facebook more than ten million times.
"If there's anything that I want to show this nation - this divide that we have: We can learn to pick ourselves up," Granville said. "This is a great nation and we'll overcome anything together."
